Things come in threes, they say. As if to prove the point, after the grim events surrounding Gary Speed and Fabrice Muamba we now have the awful news that Stilian Petrov has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia.
As a Villa fan, I was shocked to hear this. As a human being, I am sad for him but I know he will give it a good fight and kick its arse.
Not sure I agree really. I think it's more along the lines of he spent a ton (although a lot of it was Torres cash) and they're not good enough on the pitch.
Kenny, for what it's worth, is falling on the sword saying they're his buys, but I wonder if that's not press nonsense and not so much the reality. I also wonder if he's asking to do more with less, and might not have wanted to go that route.
I don't like that Henry and Werner aren't going to be in attendance tomorrow. The aesthetics are really bad. It's not just FA Cup semifinal but with Hillsborough tribute and the significance of the weekend, just doesn't look good. I know they will draw criticism in Boston if they were to attend, but as a Yankees fan, I really don't care about that. Besides, it's the first two weeks of the season--get a grip.
Chelsea agreed to sign Marko Marin....I think I'm excited about this as a fan but I'm unsure. I've seen Marin play but not recently however he was great as a younger player and I think he's still in his early 20s. He's very small though so dunno about him in the Prem League. Other problem I have is that he's a good player but not a world class player...I'd be fine with this as a sub signing and maybe he grows into a starter. It does at least give a player to use on the left side.
