Good mid morning and welcome to the Europa.
My first observation is that Rubin Kazan would have been a great name for a character in Angel Heart. And my second is that this will be the battle of the nearly men.
Louis Cyphre: Are you an atheist?
Harry Angel: Yeah, I’m from Brooklyn.
Sure I was put back in my box by the vast majority of you that voted in a recent poll. Things have changed and clearly most people don’t give as stuff about this competition. So tonight will be interesting as I believe that Rubin Kazan do care and they will be fielding their finest.
So will Arry play the kids? My guess is that the side will remain slanted that way. The Europa is a pleasant enough distraction for the up and coming players but essentially a nuisance in respect of the first teamers. Why would he make dramatic changes now?
Gio and Pav are pretty much guaranteed a start I guess. So if they fail again to set the world alight being serviced by children, their coffins will have definitely more nails in than wood.
I hope I am wrong. I hope we get cracker of a game, but if we do it may be down to the visitors kick starting proceedings.
