It increasingly looks like a shite plan to avoid him getting called up in October.Ole says he picked up "a strain" in the behind closed doors game during the international window. Was asked what sort of strain and he said it doesn't matter.
That’s the whole point, Pogue!Jesus. You’re full of bad takes this last 24 hours. He hasn’t yet been available for selection since Ronaldo joined the club!
Cavani was available for most of last season. Certainly had plenty of streaks of games that matched Ronaldo’s seven whole games so far this season.That’s the whole point, Pogue!
He’s hardly available for selection, this season or last. There’s always lack of fitness, some knock, some issue related to travel. Seven games into the season when Ronaldo is rotated, he’s still not ready to play. Ronaldo’s two years older, but is so evidently completely dedicated to his craft, still able to offer a full-time contribution as a world class striker. Edinson? Not so much.
If Ronaldo had not suddenly become available, this season could have been really ugly early on: Rashford’s had surgery, Sancho’s ineffective, Martial’s disinterested. We’re quite lucky that the lack of Cavani has only become a noticeable problem last night.
