The tedium of the international break was worth enduring given what England served up last Saturday evening. Somehow I doubt they’ll produce another display to match that one anytime soon. (I’m an eternal cynic when it comes to a Sven-Goran Eriksson managed England team.)

Apologies for the lack of updates recently; I took the opportunity to… disappear during the first ten days of the current break in Premiership / Champions League action.

Not a lot of note has happened. The usual pre-January transfer window rumours have started in earnest, and the speculation surrounding Hernan Crespo and Arjen Robben’s futures seems to be ongoing, the latter even being linked with a move to Three Point Lane.

But the most delicious news of the last ten days has to be the prospect of travelling to Liverpool to watch Chelsea play the Reds in the all-new Dairylea Dome. The Kraft Kop will no doubt treat us to a rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

Only two-and-a-half days to go till ‘proper’ football starts again — with a home win over Newcastle United to look forward to.
