Thanks for the info - that makes sense re: Gaborik. Still getting to grips with the intricacies of the game.
Am I right in thinking Prust and Avery are good PK'ers? Prust seems to be good in the corners. Although, of course, I may be talking like a naive limey...
re: derbies. The last soccer one I saw (Brighton vs Portsmouth) was in the FA Cup this season. There were police everywhere and both clubs had what are known over here as 'Firms' out - with 100 or so on each side, having to be kept apart by police, with Portsmouth given an escort by police riot vans from the train station to the ground.
Then after the game, the two gangs (I guess you could call them) tried to meet up for a fight in the next town.
I went away to Crystal Palace (Brighton's main rivals) a few seasons back and we were held in for an hour after the game and kept penned in certain bars before the game. We had about 4,000 aways fans there that day and the atmosphere was certainly nasty.
It will be refreshing to go to a sporting derby without all that hassle.
Lets go rangers!
