Joey Yobo and Ayegbebi Yakubu selected in the Squad, Victor Anichebe and Steven Pienaar left behind.
Suppose we might have struggled if all four had been selected.

atleast we have Pienaar and the Stoppage time goal machine, suprised they havn't taken pienaar after his recent outstanding performances but glad they havn't.

Lets hope they have a Early Exit :D

Nah hope they do well and Joey And Yak go win it

That's the best we could have hoped for tbh. I'd have rather they'd have left Yak behind and took Vic though.

look forward to a

-------------- Cahill------------------

Osman-- Carsley-- Neville--Arteta

Valente---Lescott--Stubbs---Hibbo

I honestly think we wont win a game whilst Pienaar Joey Yak and Baines arnt in the team because shite players replace them all.

Think DM is looking for a few loans in January so we might be ok, and Baines and Stubbs should be back from injuries by the time they go to the African Nations Tourny.

Good to see they've left Victor for us. Can definitely see DM getting couple more players in January as we already need some more cover as it is! Oh, and don't be too surprised if either Yak or Joey get mysterious injuries just after Christmas >_>
