Nelsen Out For Much Of The Autumn
I have just realised that our captain will be the other side of the world for much of October and November.
As captain of New Zealand he is committed to playing in their games on October 13th and 17th, he will then be back with us (with jet lag?) before returning to New Zealand for games on November 17th and 21st. There is no doubt we will miss him.
My worry is that this will cost us points and at the end of the season we will not be as high in the table as we deserve.
Ryan is a very patriotic Kiwi so wants to play these matches. Evidently Fifa rules are such that B.R. cannot prevent him playing anyway. (Sorry Samba but this makes me all the more pleased that your country did not qualify, selfish I know but that's what comes of being passionate about Blackburn Rovers.)
