Just in case anybody needed extra motivation to go out and prove a point in Donetsk on Thursday, along come the lovely people at Match of the Day 2 to fire up the Fulham boys.

Slaven Bilic (lauded as a masterful coach despite failing to take Croatia to the World Cup): ‘Shakhtar are a much better team than Fulham’.

Alan Hansen (makes a living out of slaughtering defenders but has chosen comfy sofas instead of dugouts): ‘I can’t see Bobby Zamora as an international player’.

I think that’s Roy’s team talk sorted. I’d love to see Bobby cup his ear in Hansen’s direction one of these days.
