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

Super Excuses

A pearler from the Roeder archives as he again "doesn`t mention injuries" but spends an entire interview talking about them. Speaking ahead of England`s Michael Owen`s comeback tonight he quipped:

"We know the season has been tough, but I also know people have short memories. Alex Ferguson is complaining of having seven injured at the moment and being left with 12; I had 12 injured for six months and was left with 12 also - and three or four of those were kids from the academy. I would remind you of that rather than just say we have not picked up enough points this year.

I know we have not, but there are very, very strong reasons why we have not and all things being equal, next year without that horrific injury list, we have to be positive. With Michael Owen and Shola Ameobi working with Oba Martins and me strengthening in the right area of the team, we will be where we ought to be next year.'

Change the record Glenn.

Big Sam will be ya boss by the start of next season...FACT! I have always liked Roeder (for sending west ham down) but he is uesless. look at him, u just know his breathe just stinks of coffee.

Probably Maxwell House rather than Nescafe.

Maxwell House is rank. So are Roeder's excuses - a good combo.
