SportMoose Soccer Snippets

Luke Dixon 29 Feb 2012

 

 

There seems to be a thousand and one things going on in the soccer world today so the SportMoose thought it would be a good idea to lump a few of them together in a SportMoose Soccer Snippets feature.

 

England face the Netherlands on Feb. 29 in an International friendly at Wembley but their ever-growing injury lists is making it look less and less likely of a win for the Three Lions. Temporary manager Stuart Pearce will have to do without the services of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker, the Manchester United duo Wayne Rooneyand Tom Cleverley and now the Aston Villa striker Darren Bent, the latter suffering from suspected ankle ligament damage.

 

North of the English border are Scotland who face Slovenia but will do so without a trio of stars initially called up to the squad. Celtic midfielder Scott Brown was the first person pull out of the match and he was joined by the Blackpool winger Matt Phillips(hamstring) and Sunderland's full-back Phil Bardsley (calf).

 

Staying in Scotland, Rangers' miserable couple of weeks continues after they were fined £50,000 for failing to disclose that their owner Craig Whyte had previously been disqualified as a director. Whyte was disqualified as a director for seven years back in 2000 .

 

Back in England now and Arsenal fans have long lambasted their manager, Arsene Wenger, for not spending any money on strengthening their side and things are only going to get worse for the Frenchman after it was revealed Arsenal made profits of more than £49.5 million in the six months to the end of November. Most of this profit came from the sale of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Arsenal's cash reserves now stand at £115.2 million!

 

And last but not least is Grant Holt playing down his England chances. The Norwich Citystriker is the joint second highest Englishman in the Premier League goalscoring charts with 10 goals and some pundits have said the 30-year old could be given a chance to represent his country, especially after withdrawals from the England-Netherlands game from Wayne Rooney and Darren Bent. Holt has played down these suggesting saying, “I'm not holding my phone tightly in my pocket and waiting.”
