'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Capello: Arsenal Have Advantage

Juventus manager, Fabio Capello, thinks Arsenal already have an advantage over Juventus because we did not play this weekend.

Arsenal's Premiership clash with Portsmouth was postponed this weekend due to a waterlogged pitch. The Gunners have not played any competitive football since the 3-0 victory over Charlton Saturday before last, and will have had a full ten days rest.

Capello thinks we will be much fresher.

'I'm sorry about having had such a tough challenge ahead of the game with Arsenal, especially as they haven't played,' said Capello.

'Arsenal have a slight advantage because we played and they didn't, and because we played for half of the match with only ten men.'

An excuse ahead of time perhaps?

Yes like praising your boxing opponent before delivering a knock-out punch. Watch out, if Capello had said that Arsenal are rubbish and were there for the taking, your boys would come out all fired up. Don't listen to his whims....just prove him right.
