No prizes for guessing what dominates this mornings papers.
No, still no prizes.
Apparently he’s now managed to agree terms with Real Madrid from the comfort of our lovely little Austrian training camp. The Guardian latch on to the fact that Vieira missed training yesterday, something which other papers have failed to do, and claim he is “on the verge” of completing a deal.
It’s all come from that bastion of untruth, Marca. Tabloid trash? ‘Praps. But the paper does have some pretty strong ties to Real. And you know what they say – no smoke without fire.
I think this story could’ve been printed yesterday, or the day before. It’s the same stuff we’ve been hearing for days and days. Personally, I’m of the opinion that Vieira will leave this week.
But hey, it’s all conjecture.
Today we take on the mighty Sturm Graz. The Euro 2004 players won’t be ready for this game, and it’s expected that Jeremie Aliadiere will have to sit it out. Still, lads like Reyes, Cesc, Bergkamp, Gilberto, and van Persie should all be on display.
In other news, the FA are taking the piss.
