like wiy mentioned they both share them!

the newcastle game is most likely to be on TV and its highly likely it will be on the sunday because we play a uefa cup game on the thursday!

Our best hope of getting through is that after our game Chelski play Barca so i hope they rest Robben and one or two others! in the League Cup we held chelski for 90 mins until Robben came on!

robben vs puyol will be a great battle.

newcastle have a chance - ameobi should be given a run - i like the look of him - very useful player

Shola has been helped by the Bellamy situation (looks like he is off to celtic on loan) AND we have no time to get a striker in (hopefully Yakubu in the summer) so Shola will get a decent run in the side providing he stears clear of injuries. he has shown a lot of promise but hasnt quite delivered but im hoping with a run in the side he will do

blackburn and burnley will be a mad match

come on ROVERS
