The Europa Match Preview Rubin Waiting For
In light of the unexpected and unfortunate absence of normal daddy, the kids of Lilywhite’s field trip to scary Russia this afternoon will be under the strict supervision of adoptive parents, Bond and Jordan. Or as I shall now call them, weekday daddy. One would imagine there’ll be little p*ssing about with these two in charge. Unless one of the tenderfooted scamps wishes to feel the full force of their temporary guardian’s shoe.
‘You, laddie. What’s that in yer mooth? Is that gum?’.
Actually, that’s all gone a bit weird.
The truth remains that it’s a big test for those loveable younglins. Thousands of miles away from home against battle-hardened Euro-slickers, without the guidance of their familiar paternal leader. You’d be forgiven for thinking that a couple of extra wise heads would be sent out to Kazan today- to add to that of the likely-to-be-involved Defoe and Pav and nearly-back-from-injury, Billy Gallas. I would guess the chances of any of the big movers being seen in action, though, are somewhere between ‘wafer’ and ‘blue Rizla’ slim. Of course, I could probably do a bit research and find out for certain.
But I don’t wanna.
Looking forward to seeing Tom Carroll again, mind.
