Everyone`s Czech mate
Whilst the song might sing about him being big, Czech and breaking neck, Big Dave Rozenhal comes across a thoroughly pleasant and well adjusted individual. Speaking on his week away he`s been outlining his delight at the move and the way things are going for him on Tyneside. First and foremost though he revealed that him and team mate Tomas Rosicky have already started the banter about the Carling Cup match:
'I have been speaking to Tomas about the game on international duty. We have had a few jokes about it, but we are both looking forward to the game. As soon as I heard the draw, I thought of Tomas. It will be a difficult game, but this is football and we know if you are to be successful, you need to win those games. That's why you play, to test yourself against the best players. It will be a big game for us and hopefully it will be a winning game for us.
I enjoy playing with Cacapa. I speak a little French and our communication is good. He is not so young, he has plenty of experience and we need that. This team has a lot of players with experience now. They can mix it with younger players like Steven Taylor, who has been playing right-back. The defence has been playing well, but it isn't just the defence, the whole team has been doing well.'
