Horse, Wolves …

You know when something happens and you just love it?

I’ve defended hard-working, genial, versatile and generally underrated Ukranian international captain Oleg Luznhy from a particular friend of mine for ages. Two years of mickey taking has finally caught up with the Wolves fan today. Great. I suspect Luznhy’s attitude, work ethic and demeanor will make him popular at Molineux, and I hope it all goes well for him.

Sticking with an Arsenal-ish theme, I think the way Dennis Bergkamp is (seemingly) being treated is an absolute disgrace. Along with Gianfranco Zola, Peter Schmeichel and Eric Cantona; Dennis Bergkamp is one of the pioneering individuals who has brought the Premiership something very special indeed, and made it arguably the most entertaining in the World. Despite a couple of mediocre (by his standards) seasons, Bergkamp has still managed to give the footballing public some very special moments to remember. His goal against Newcastle the season before last was absolutely beyond compare. He deserves a swan-song.

So Harry Kewell will sign for Barçelona, Arsenal, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea or Leeds. That’s cleared up then. The question is does any of them want someone who is such a right royal pain in the arse. The same goes for the pontificator extraordinaire, Ronaldinho, who’s decided to take a holiday to Brazil.

Another thing that is — quite frankly — astonishing is that it seems Chelsea’s Claudio Ranieri is worrying about his future. Apart from being one of the nicest guys in the game, he’s done what needed to be done at Chelsea, and taken the squad by the scruff of the neck and shaken a collective spirit into them. As far as I’m concerned, he’s done an excellent job at Stamford Bridge; and I don’t care how much money this mafia guy is putting in, getting rid of Ranieri would be a terrible step in the wrong direction.

Finally, the most amusing story of the summer so far is the mysterious disappearance of Birmingham’s Senegal international Aliou Cisse. ‘Sorry boss, I forgot to turn my phone on.’
