I hadn’t realized that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink plays for Cardiff City, which is just indicative of how little attention I’ve been playing the last week or two. For that matter, I’d forgotten about the debacle with his leg and a blocked vein.

I was a big fan of Hasselbaink in the late 90s and early 00’s. People claimed he was a grumpy git but I saw someone who never settled for giving something other than his best, and who created goals as much as scoring them. Under appreciated by people who think that the likes of Shearer should be a template for forwards, as well.

So, no matter who wins this game today, there’s something to be pleased about with the winner getting to the final.
