Our impending destiny with doom that is trip to the Estadio da Luz tomorrow night, draws closer.
Not only have we a 1-3 scoreline to iron out, but we also have to combat another list (as long as your arm) of injured/suspended players. Michael Dawson, Younes Kaboul, Ettiene Capoue, Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches and Jan Vertonghen are all currently unavailable for selection.
A cursory glance at that list reveals that we are set to play a must win match against a free scoring, pressing side without the services of an acknowledged centreback.
Zeki Fryers is a player with promising future ahead of him. He must be wondering how he drew the short straw to give an upbeat interview ahead of this game.
Nick’s response made me laugh. I need all the laughs I can get right now.
