Andy Marshall Brings the News: Collins and Wales, Gabby's Boots

What's up everyone? I'm really enjoying this international break. Playing FIFA 2012 at Bodymoor Heath all day gets incredibly tiring. Now? I get to play it at home, which is way more comfortable. I just keep a little fridge next to my chair for quick beer access.

Speaking of the international break, some of my teammates are out there. James Collins is saying he isn't playing for Wales this time because of an injured foot. I'm not 100% sure I believe him. He's looked fine for us. Maybe Wales just didn't want him. Pfft. Wales want everybody! Ever see that movie Free Willy? That whale even liked the stupid kid!

Meanwhile, in news that hits closer to home, the-backup-to-the-backup bench warmer (that's how I like to think of Shay Given... maybe if he works hard enough he can have my spot some day) is wondering if Euro 2012 might be his last chance at a major tournament. I don't know how many times I have to tell that guy, he's welcome to come over and play FIFA any day. I'm happy to have people over. Just gotta clean up the curry boxes first.

And before I go back to my game (I'm beating the Portland Timbers as Barcelona!) I thought I should let you know that Gabby Agbonlahor doesn't much care for his boots. But they're scoring goals! My favorite boots are my slippers. So so comfy! Alright, back to beating the Timbers! Wait, that sounds inappropriate...
