Top French striker Loic Remy is out of the French Euro 2012 squad unable to regain fitness leaving Les Bleus with just three strikers. Hmm .. can't think of another French international natural born goalscorer as useful in front of goal as he is with a bottle of peroxide. Hopefully Les Grenouilles won't get struck down with common sense and pick the player I can't quite bring to mind. But if they did it would be difficult not to cheer for him. Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! ...
If he wants to go, and goes, and does well, it'll be good for us. It's not as though he hasn't had much rest.
On the other hand, if he's injured, or misses our tour to Asia, or has a bad game or two, or knackers himself out...
Sunday is give karma to Anonymous day.
Sparky'll be able to rotate the strikers early doors to give him some rest if needed so fatigue shouldn't be a big issue.
I'd say the potential benefits outweigh the drawbacks. Say he goes, has a blinding tournament and scores a few goals. He comes back brim full of confidence and happy, we get a striker who is right on his game and ready to roar from the off. A little help from the fixture computer and he could catch a few teams unawares, get us off to a strong start then have a little break mid-September.
Fingers crossed for him, he deserves it.

you can get Cisse at 66-1 to be top goalscorer in the Euros
and get this .. you can still get Zamora at 100-1
I couldn't find odds for Jimmy Greaves
5000 to 1 for greaves
One Karma staked. All I need now is Woy, unlike Wamsey, to pick Gweavsey and its hello 5000 Karma coming my way (plus the Karma staked of course). What odds will you give me for Dennis Law?

Tom Waits makes a great Lou Macari
