Cor' blimey

It was a case of second time lucky for ASBO in Spain last night, as he made amends for a penalty (and rebound) miss late in normal time by firing home the winning shoot-out spot-kick to beat Deportivo La Coruna in what was our penultimate pre-season friendly. I can only assume that his preposterous facial furniture was an attempt to lighten the mood in the camp and cheer Sol up...

Other than for the fact that we held our own away to decent opposition and the eventual 5-3 victory, the game was notable for two reasons: Chris Hughton trying James Perch out in a central defensive role alongside Fabricio Coloccini, the man upended for ASBO's first effort from 12 yards; and Spidermag's return to the side after his post-World-Cup break, coming on as a second-half substitute for the Xisco Kid, who had been ineffectual against his former club.
