Andy Marshall Brings the News: Defend or perish!

First one to talk has to rub the gaffer's head!
First one to talk has to rub the gaffer's head!

Hey there everybody. I haven't been around much this week, but that's mostly because none of my teammates have talked about anything this week. Apparently it's a game. The first one to talk to the media has to rub McLeish's head. So far no one has broken. Gotta applaud the lads on that.

But I guess I should give you all something to read. Like this little tidbit that if the boys don't defend set pieces Alex McLeish is going to drop them from the roster. I feel for the guys here. Set piece defending it pretty tricky. I usually let the computer handle it for me. What I'd really like to see, however, is headline writers who know the difference between your/you're. What, you didn't think Andy Marshall understood grammar? What's that? Oh. You just didn't think about Andy Marshall. Whatever.

Meanwhile, the guys over at Run of Play have a bit on Shay Given and Richard Dunne and Ireland. I mean, I guess it's cool that they get to play international football, but can they groom a ferret? I didn't think so.

Finally, I was pretty excited to hear that we'd be playing the main character from The Lion King. I mean, if I got a chance to play, it'd have to be against a cartoon, right? But then I found out Simba would be playing SC Villa in Uganda and I was sad. Mostly because I didn't know Uganda was a country. I always thought it was an interrogative. You know, as in "Can I have that leftover curry, or are Uganda eat it?"
