White Hart Lane
26th April 2008
Bolton travel to Tottenham on Saturday, with the attack spearheaded (if that`s the right word) by former Spurs player Grzegorz Rasiak. No, it`s not the right word is it? A spearhead is sharp, fast moving and usually causes damage.
'When you look at the games Fulham, Birmingham, ourselves and Reading have got I think you would probably look and say that Birmingham are favourites in this relegation battle to stay up.`
Mystic Megson brims with confidence.
Fatty Robinson may be back in goal. This is good news. For Bolton.
Pascal Chimbonda (calf) and Jonathan Woodgate (ankle) may also be in contention. Gareth Bale and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are out for the rest of the season. Ledley King is out for the rest of his life.
Lennon v Jlloyd Samuel. There should be rules against that sort of mismatch. Maybe young Aaron will go out on the razz tonight. You can only hope.
Nicky Hunt (shoulder), Jussi Jaaskelainen (back) and Ricardo Gardner (ribs) are out for the season. Notice how those injuries progress down the body. The next season terminating injury will be eye-watering in more ways than one.
Who else? Some might think that those luminous green boots he wears are an attempt to be flash. This isn`t so. He moonlights as a cats eye on the M61 next to the Reebok after games. Rasiak is phenomenon and not in a good way. The only footballer playing today who runs as if he`s wearing diving boots. On the plus side, if you've got a dripping tap, he's your man.
Almost certain to score now.
One more win for Bolton will take them into double figure for victories at the Lane. Best to keep quiet about the 24 times they`ve lost.
