'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Joe on Viduka / Riise

First up Riise. Joe had earlier given snippets of information about his potential transfer targets, with thinly veiled links to Jon Aarne Riise. He has now confirmed he is keen on him specifically saying:

'John's name came up specifically because he's not been in their team and he's a good player. We made contact with their club and asked 'Is there any chance of a loan?' and that's as far as it's got at the moment. And what happened after I'd made the call? He's back in the team and playing well, which changes things. When you make the call you're always aware that things can change.'

Meanwhile the gaffer decided to give a little more info on the return of the prodigal Aussie, Mark Viduka, saying:

"He's not far off, I can tell you. Obviously he hasn't had games but you might find that he's on the bench on Saturday. What we decided to do with Mark was to ask him to try and come back into training. We didn't want to hurry him up because we don't want to risk him breaking down again but if he felt like he could come back into the sessions then we were happy for him to do that.

It was a matter of bringing him back gradually and seeing what he could manage but he's surprised us all. He's got better and better as the days have gone on and some of the things he's been doing have been excellent. We'll see how he goes now but there is a chance of him being involved.'
