Now, let me state from the outset that I would have loved to see Vic pledge his allegiances to England but I respect his decision to play for Nigeria. Can people correct me if I am wrong but I believe last week was his first game in Nigeria?
I live in the Middle East and travel extensively through Africa on business, my own experience has been that when I travel to less developed countries ie all countries outside of South Africa and possibly Morocco I also become ill. This is irrespective of the quality of the hotel I stay in. The most common cause is a parasite that can be found in the water, that must get into your system in the shower (so the doctors tell me).
The reason I mention this is I hope for the sake of Victor and Everton that he can acclimatise to the difference in food, water and general hygiene when he is overseas otherwise this may not be the first occasion he returns from international duty with the trots.

A big fight scene changed to Harrison Ford just shooting the guy with the sword because everyone was too ill to act it out... accept for Spielberg.

"Our resources are stretched, particularly in the goal-scoring department (and I think it was an absolute disgrace for Anichebe to leave us this week to be substitute for Nigeria?s Olympic team AND to come back sick ? Derby Week. Whoever is advising him wants bloody shooting ? problem is I think he has disregarded all sound advice on this matter. Yobo and Yakubu are used to the playing in the conditions both on and off the field etc in Nigeria , Anichebe isn?t !!)"
I too have travelled extensively particularly in under-developed countries and you will almost certainly come down with a bug if you arent used to the conditions,food, water etc.

Needless to say I refused to return there despite being offered an extra 50% pay hike.
Moysie, give him, Yak and Joey lots of bagmeals and astronaut ration packs to take with them, as this certainly won’t be the last time!

There must be preventative medicines and suchlike to solve these issues. Get the Club Doctor and magic Baz on the case, or whatever necessary.
(Or just get and keep James Vaughan fit, he is the best solution to our striking needs.)
