Pot shots at hot shot

According to reports in today's press, Obafemi Martins has narrowly avoided being gunned down in his home city of Lagos. Thankfully, our current number 9 survived the incident unharmed, unlike his passenger who was reportedly shot in the hand and shoulder.

Martins himself goes on to speculate that the attack was intended to kill him because of his recent failure to appear in time for a game for his country - if that's the case, then from the tone of his interview the upshot is that Martins appears far more likely to retire from international football than improve his timekeeping.

All of which bodes well for us, given that the African Cup of Nations is scheduled to take place during the middle of next season.
