That Friday Feeling

The tail end of the week has certainly been a busy one. Rivaldo is apparently off to United, and with an agent called Alejandro Mancuso, who is surprised? The former World Player of the Year is looking to leave Barca and their expensive flops, with the sunny shores of moss-side looking likely to replace the Catalonian monotony. Sir Alex will have to convince the board that anywhere between £22 and £40m is a worthwhile price for a 29 year old, although a swap with the-apparently bored-Juan Sebastien Veron looks more likely.

The most interesting story for me is Jaap Stam's positive drug test which could lead to a lengthy ban. The third member of the Dutch national squad to test positive and the second Lazio player in the last year—something smells fishy. I've always believed Stam to have a certain degree of integrity and I believe him when he says...

“One thing I can say without hesitation or doubt, however, is that I have never knowingly taken nandrolone or any other illegal substance. I am not and have never been a cheat and would never do anything like this to jeopardise the happiness of my family or the future of my career. It is ridiculous to suggest I would, whatever the test says.”

Which can only mean that someone has been slipping it to the players, but who? call Holmes.

On a lighter note, it's going to be a fruity encounter at White Hart Lane this weekend, with Sulzeer making his first return since his cheerfully received move to the mighty Arsenal over the summer. Lets hope the intelligencia at WHL don't ruin the day by concentrating on anything other than getting stuffed.
