Dances With Scones is out for 3 months.
This is what we in the trade refer to the opposite of good news. Had it not been for Super Romancrazypavinchenko’s singlemindedness in wanting to play against Blackburn, we would have had 11 players on the sick list.
Now Tommy’s bought it, we can at last field a full side against any other treatment table XI the world can throw at us.
At worst, this derby looks set to be a re-run of the wretched abomination no good rubbish Carling Cup fiasco.
Somebody cheer me up. Please…
