A most needed time for rest and time to let the team gel has started due to the International break. Obviously we, as well as most Premiership teams, have quite a few players away on international duty. Hopefully LS can make the most of the two weeks without Premiership action.***LS will have a good oportunity to try out some defensive strategies tonight when the reserves take on Aston Villa.

Apparently LS tried to sign Bobo Balde from Celtic last week but the defender turned both us, as well as Sunerland down and stays (for now) in Glasgow.

Sanchez is not done investing in the squad. He claims that he will continue to spend money on new players when the transfer window reopens in January. Hopefully he has managed to get all 15 newcomers to settle in by then.

As most of you know by now, Zat Knight had a tremendous debut for Villa yesterday and played a vital part of the victory over Chelsea. Scoring the 1-0 goal as well as being solid in defence. This has changed the tune on the Swedish Aston Villa forum a lot. Now it sounds like they have signed a world class defender. Villans, you just wait…

Tonight I’ll face my attention to the Stockholm derby. Hammarby takes on AIK in a season deciding derby (at least for Hammarby). Should Hammarby lose the chance to win the league will most likely be gone. Normally the Stockholm derbies proves to be hard to predict, but this time AIK has to be the favourites coming from a run of 5 straight wins.

As always when it’s derby day, I’m not getting much work done at work and can’t wait to meet up with the boys for a couple of pre-match pints.

Forza Bajen!

I just noticed that I have got a nice little plug for the site/blog at The HammyEnd Chronicle. Nice one Chopper!
