Sorry for the slack blog action, i've had some other stuff going on lately but promise to start writing some more!
In some recent news for 'my' overseas boys Nikita Rukavytsya has netted again for FC Twente, coming on in the 76th minute against Capelle in the KNVB Cup. It was a fairly simple piece of 'route-one' football with the Twente keeper hoofing a ball up field to allow Ruka to use his piece to harass and dis-posess the Capelle defender before neatly slotting past the keeper. You can find footage of it here, just search through the videos for 'Twente - VV Capelle'.
Ruka will be hoping to find the net more often as Pim Verbeek steps up his search for a goal scoring solution for the Australian National Team leading in to South Africa 2010.
For the other boys, Aaron Mooy started for the Bolton Wanderers Reserves the other night but had a game to forget as a misplaced pass from him fed the Sunderland striker who scored the 5th goal in Sunderland's 6-1 rout of Mooy's Bolton team.
Mooy featured quite heavily in the recent World Youth Cup and although the results were less than pleasing, Mooy was a standout and will be hoping for an extended run in the Bolton Reserves on the back of it.
Oliver Bozanic is nearing full fitness after undergoing treatment for a knee injury and will be hoping to get back amongst the goals for Cheltenham Town who are currently 4 points above the drop zone in League 2.
