Hercs In The Dressing Room Pre Chelsea
*We join the lads gearing up for their game against Chelsea*
Gabby: ... and I said 'I don't even like celery!'
*The lads erupt with laughter*
MON: Alright lads settle down, right it's the warm up to the big semi, no tissues necessary Ashley.
*A.Young folds his arms and looks away with disgust as the lads all laugh at him*
MON: Sorry Ashley. Anyway with Dunne looking unlikely, Luke ... What in the world....
*Luke Young is in full cowboy gear, he slowly lifts his ten gallon hat and spits in a bucket*
L.Young: I done saw on that there Sky Sports News that with Dunne injured I'd be made deputy.
MON: You mean you'd 'deputise'
*L.Young removes his hat and begins taking off his cowboy garb*
L.Young: Oh. Balls.
MON: Yes, it's quite the injury crisis. Luke, centre back.
L.Young: Centre back but I was thinking that Carlos would ....
MON: Exactly! If that's what you think, that's what everyone will think. They won't know what's hit them with you in the middle and Carlos on the right.
MON: But nothing, in the Art of War Sun Tzu said 'Always mystify, mislead and surprise the enemy if possible'
*Gabby is nodding*
Gabby: It's true.
*The lads all turn and stare at Gabby*
Gabby: What? I read.
*The lads are still staring at Gabby*
Gabby: I read!
MON: Anyway imagine their surprise at my masterful tactics. This one's going to be a rout I tell you!
***Meanwhile in the Chelsea dressing room***
Ancelotti: I don't know much about this Martin O'Neill other than he is what us russians call 'insane'
Terry: insane's an english word boss.
Ancelotti: Is always England, England, England with you John. I would tell you 'take break' but the other players they say 'Keep John busy boss' and 'I love my wife boss'. Anyway, O'Neill will probably do something crazy like play all his defenders out of position so just harrass them and it will be what we call in Russia a 'rout'.
*Terry opens his mouth, then thinks better of remarking*
