Tuesday Backpasses: Who the hell are these guys?

Arsenal back at training today. Almunia forgot his shorts (they'll just photoshop those in later), Senderos is back and Rosicky was not just a fevered dream.

I'm a big fan of the first day of training pictures. It gives a great many 'who the fuck?' moments. For instance I was looking at the LFC pictures from Monday and noticed new faces occupying both the number four and five jerseys. Obviously four was vacated by Sami, and it took me a while to realize it was Martin Kelly, but I was quite confused.

Even moreso when I saw a number five which wasn't covered in tattoos. For some reason Danny Ayala was wearing Agger's number. Either Agger has taken a different number (he deserves the six in my opinion) or they're just throwing out these things until everyone is back in training.

Worst story ever.

yea, if you go on spurs site and look at the pics, you'll be hard-pressed to find one that feature a single player who'll still be there come august or sept. bent, bentley, zokora, down the line... all running about in their white, blue, and smokers' teeth yellow kits...

Arsenal linked with Blaise Matuidi. I approve of such a transfer.
