So interlull dullness hits us like a big wet sock just as the season was beginning to look so bright after such magnificent goals at the Cottage.
I’ve learnt a few things looking into these fixtures…………..
Auba, Wobbly and Mo Elneny are involved in home and away fixtures against South Sudan, Libya and Eswatini respectively in the AFCON qualifiers. Seems sensible.
South Sudan is, well, south of the much larger Sudan.
Eswatini is the new name for Swaziland.
Stephan Lichtsteiner will not be called up by the Swiss under a pre-arranged agreement to give the old fella a breather.
Mkhitaryan has long flights to and from Armenia since we now know it’s alongside Azerbaijan.
Terrier has even longer flights buzzing around with Uruguay in the Far East. He’ll feel at home height-wise out there anyway!
