Would have preferred to see Oztumer on the bench to Hargreaves but thats quite a good squad. Would settle for a draw today and I|MO that would be a good result. Have a feeling we will sign Ledley and that will be the end of Oztumer in the squad as doesn't really seem in the plans which is disappointing.
Things like pirates, the iron, the gunners, all of these are intrinsic to the history of the club and mean something.
Nicknames like Wolves, Gills, Shrews, these are merely abbreviations of the place. There are no higher numbers of wolves in Wolverhampton, fish in Gillingham or shrews in Shrewsbury. It’s merely a lack of imagination in their original marketing function.
Things like the Robins and the Red Devil’s are similarly just banal observations on the kit.
Anyway, that’s it. Enjoy the game.
Reminds me of the Two Ronnies late item of news about football clubs having to redesign their badges to reflect the clubs name. Oxford United's badge will be an ox, Swansea will have a swan, Queens Park will have a queen and Notts County will have a knot. Dundee will have a cake, Chelsea will have a bun and Luton will have a loo. Bristol City are in two minds and Arsenal have backed out altogether...
