You Just Knew It Would Happen

I knew pre-season had been going too well. Our major signing, Hitzlsperger, has been looking really good in the friendy matches, but now he’s picked up an injury playing for Germany in a meaningless friendly that looks likely to keep him out of our first game at Villa on Saturday, and possibly for a few more matches. 😦

Can’t we just do away with pointless pre-season internationals? This is the 3rd time in recent seasons that this has happened to us. Firstly with David James getting hurt and out of the team for a few months, then with Dean Ashton hurt while training with England – an injury that eventually led to his retirement.

Meanwhile, Zamora did well in his brief appearance for England last night and was unlucky not to score. Did more than enough to earn another call-up for when the serious games get under way next month.
