Fowler and Bolo called up for Euro Super Squad

New, comment

I can hear the conversation between Rafa and Marcelo Lippi now.

Marcelo: "Hello? Rafa?"
Rafa: "Yes, this Rafael Benitez, how may I help you?"
Marcelo: "Heeeyyyy!!! Rafa! Buddy, how are you?"
Rafa: "Sorry, Who is this?"
Marcelo: "Ah, come on, Rafa, it's me, your buddy, Marcelo!"
Rafa: "Oh..."
Marcelo: "Well, listen, I need a favor."
Rafa: "What can I do for you, Mr. Lippi?"
Marcelo: "Please, call me Marcelo."
Rafa: "Okay... Marcelo."
Marcelo: "I was wondering if I could have Xabi Alonso and Dirk Kuyt for my match tonight?"
Rafa: "Uh... I don't know..."
Marcelo: "Oh come on, Rafa... please..."
Rafa: "Listen, Marcelo, you already have two of my best players..."
Marcelo: "Okay, well, what about that Sissoko guy?"
Rafa: "He's not European."
Marcelo: "Well, neither is Ronaldinho."
Rafa: "Sorry, Marcelo, I got to go."
Marcelo: "Listen, man, please, do you have anybody you can send? I need help bad."
Rafa: "Well, okay, I'll see what I can do."

Fowler playing is not really that far-fetched, I'm kind of glad for him, but Bolo? That's a stretch, but at least he'll get some playing time in. Well, at least I hope so.
