Well SC23 is out injured. No surprise and not bad news either for most of us, I suspect.
More on the AC3 situation, I still think he's hoping to go to the World Cup without having to bother playing for us this season (mind you, given MF16's performances I really like to think he'd wouldn't force his way back into the team anyway):
AW says: "Gael Clichy looks ready but I don't know how much he is free pain-wise in his foot.
"Ashley looks completely free pain-wise but looks to be behind Gael fitness-wise. Let's give him two more weeks before he is completely ready to play."
