Merry Christmas to All!

December 25, 2010 — by Sean

Santa has reverse-burgled us again and we’re about to settle into another day of family and feasting, but before we do let’s look at the happenings in global football… Well what do you know, not a definitive thing going on anywhere.

Yes there are transfer rumors swirling around every club, but nothing is certain and managers are mostly talking loans rather than long-term contracts. We’ll see a few people shuffle of course: Edin Dzeko could leave Wolfburg for a top tier team, Adebayor, Santa Cruz and Robbie Keane are likely to shift squads, Ganso may set off from Brazil for foreign shores, maybe Kaka moves back to Italy where he could face Shay Given between the sticks in Rome, Manuel Neuer could find his way to Munich from Schalke—the list is nearly endless. Rather than continue on in this haphazard vein, let’s all agree to check back in when the transfer window is just about shut, and in the meantime say a little prayer that the snow lets up long enough for us to enjoy some holiday matches from merry ol’ England.

As our gift to you, please enjoy this 1971 animated version of A Christmas Carol.
