Bloody hell, it never rains but it pours, and it is now rainforest damp in the Bush! Remy has done an abductor muscle and is out for 2-3 months, leaving Redknapp with the exciting goal scoring options of Zamora, Mackie or Bothroyd!
You have to laugh. Cisse isn't Pele I know, but the one thing he does offer is goals. Zamora is a bit like Carlton, great at the link up stuff but poor when it comes to hitting a barn door from five yards, whilst Bothroyd is Championship class at best and Mackie is...well a trier.
To stay up, the Hula Hoops probably have to win seven games from thirteen, or a win percentage of 53% - better than Chelsea's who currently sit in third place in the table! That may be unfair, given they will draw a few, so call it six wins from 13, or a win percentage of 46%, better than Everton who sit in fifth and Arsenal who occupy sixth!
How the hell is that going to be achieved with Bothroyd, Mackie and / or Zamora up front?
All that money spent and the squad is still hopelessly ill equipped for the Prem! What a cock up! Well played Tony Fernandes!
