Only twenty minutes to go until the game at the Mestalla. Eto'o doesn't make the trip, in addition to Sylvinho, Ezquerro and the still injured Lillian Thuram. With the FA Cup tie between Fulham and Spurs winding up (two gols each for Robbie Keane and Berbatov) I'm settling down for a good evenings futbol, with Sevilla hosting Atletico at eight. Quickly before kick off, Amy Lawrence has a good article in today's Observer about the 'crisis' at the Camp Nou ahead of the Liverpool game on Wednesday. Also, Frank Rijkaard has responded to increasing speculation about his jumping ship and insisted that he's staying at the club. Whether things change in the summer will depend a great deal on their retaining either La Liga or the European Cup. Rijkaard may well decide that his work at Barcelona is done should they do either.
Right, more later after it all goes down.
