Richard Not Dunne And Dusted For Sunderland

Richard Not Dunne And Dusted For Sunderland

Yay pathetic pun time again! Richard Dunne is struggling with the Achilles problem he picked up against Wolves and is considered a serious doubt for the Sunderland clash.

Quoted on SSN O'Neill admitted that Dunne had been struggling with the problem and that 'he did well to come out for the second half' against Wolves, before blaming the gruelling schedule for taking it's toll on players.

'He was very sore at halftime but we'll monitor it and see how it goes. Is it the number of games catching up, it is a combination of those things.'

Bottomline is I'd be very surprised if Dunne didn't play against Sunderland, we seem to have a lot of these late fitness test stories that actually equal no change to the first team. The ones that cause changes to be made we hear very little about ie Gabby's one problem to another absence of late.

I for one wouldn't be too unhappy if he missed the game, just for the simple reason that we (SHOULD) see Carlos move in to his best position in the centre and finally see Luke Young get a game!

Yeah i agree Curtis needs games or else we could end up losing him - and a lot of money - didnt he cost in the region of £10M ? Does anyone know how long he has left on his contact ? ..................... As for the Spurs fans comments that have since been deleted .... let em qualify for CL next season - throw loads of money at it like Leeds did - with hopefully the same long term fate.... I think really that the real only team other than the current big 4 who will maintain a CL place is Man City ... only cus of the money situation .... sadly Villa .... and thankfully Spurs are not in this position .... and to be honest if Chelsea had there money taken away there place would be threatened ..... the only place i see maintaining are Man United and Liverpool .... because of there history in the competition and huge world wide support .... shame about Arsenal - they are always the nearly there boys ...... bit like Villa really

Agree totally splatt. It will be really interesting to see what MoN does. Maybe we'll see something that will give us a clue as to what the hell is happening with Luke Young.
