Dr. Bozo Brozzi has said that the next few hours will tell whether or not Francesco is able to take the field at the Fruili on Sunday. Sounds like even if he is capable of going he'll be at less than 100%. I gather we'll only find out his status once the squad lists come out, because if he's only available for bench/spot duty, I strongly doubt he'll be flown up. If he's available to play some serious minutes, he'll be there; if not, they won't risk him.
Then again, this is the most important game of the season remaining......so you know what that means: I know nothing.
Mark Cass: Same injury he suffered against Inter (you know, when he got a yellow card despite Captain Fuckhead elbowing him in the face and Mark was called for the foul) and he'll most likely be out for Sunday's matchup.
Mirko Van Basten: Lower back is alright, he'll be good to go.
Aquilani: Somebody has a KA voodoo doll and has been poking away at him gleefully this year. I suspect it's the Pizaman. And think about it for a second. The only prolonged stretch when KA was truly healthy was the beginning of the year when Pizarro was injured himself and couldn't play. Since then? Can't get healthy, can't stay healthy. So it's either that or Piza's not so secret lover, Spuciano Lalletti, keeps kicking him down the stairs at Trigoria so that Piza gets more PT. I think I'm on to something here.
Anywho, it's hopeful he'll be available for Sunday. If he is, likely to see sub duty again.
A few minor injuries to Taddei and Ludovicious, but nothing to get your Giallorosso panties in a bunch over.
And I don't think I've anticipated a squad list this much all season. This is The Game, one which may dictate the final standings, and we can only pray You Know Who is available. I'll take a guess that he is, and predict an early lineup:
Cicinho, Juan, Mexes, Max;
Taddei, Perrotta, Vucinic;
