Michael Johnson has apparently had problems with discipline. He has been concentrating on enjoying himself rather than on his football.

Yer, he's had a pretty bad groin injury for the past year or so. So, rather than trying to get back to match fitness, he's hung around Piccadilly, getting absolutely rat-arsed every night. ¬_¬

He's played in a few friendlies so far, so things are looking good. We missed his work-horse runs last season. Well, actually, we didn't as Ireland did 'em instead, and better.

As for Nedum, he was injured for the first half of last season from an injury he got at the end of the season before. Came back around Christmas and regained his confidence and was rock-fucking-solid after a few shaky sub appearances (Didn't let in any goals or owt, just when he had the ball, you thought "Oh, fuuuck"). Then he became Dunne's CB partner after they shifted Richards to RB (And Pab Zab to CDM) because Richards was fucking awful for pretty much all of last season.

Him and Ireland seemed to swap lifestyles.

R.I.P Bobby Robson

This really upsets me actually. :( It was only a week ago when they had the big Bobby Robson match at St James' Park. Seems like he was just holding on for that one more match. :(

True great of the sport, and someone I had a lot of time for.

What has happened to NUFC since he left just shows what a good manager he actually was, and anecdotes about his absentmindedness disguise a sharp football brain.

RIP

True legend of the game, and a real gentleman. RIP.

By the way RCHD, I know it doesn't matter, but you were right. He was a Newcastle fan but most of his family were Sunderland fans. Having said that, he was at our last game of the season against Chelsea. Newcastle were lucky to have him as a manager, he did things that nobody else seems to have managed with Newcastle. He was the only top-level manager (or one of very few) who wasn't an arsehole too. Just a great guy who loved his football.

Went to St James' Park yesterday to see the tributes for Sir Bobby Robson. Was quite overwhelming and sad. The pictures don't really do justice to how many tributes there are there.

Was really sad writing what people wrote as well. :(

I thought about going through the other day, but I didn't know what kind of reaction your fans would give me. Sunderland fans who were at Celtic Park gave a fitting tribute at the start and end of our game, singing 'There's only one Bobby Robson'. I didn't watch the match last Sunday, but I saw him on the news and I was shocked at how ill he looked. Really sad to see.

Well as long as you didn't go along in a Sunderland top shouting various chants I'm sure noone would have gave a shit. There was a rather sombre atmosphere actually, very quiet and calm.

From the Beeb:

"Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky, who has just returned from a six-month lay-off, could miss the first six weeks of the season after straining a hamstring in training. (The Sun)"

I'm actually starting to feel sorry for the guy.

VDS is out for two months as well, while Riera seemed to pick up quite a bad knock in the friendly last night...
