The Roker Roundup: February 17th 2012 - Catts Nearing Comeback & Campbell Feeling Confident

Tonight's news! It's all here for you.

It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday... The famously uttered words Freidrich Neitzsche, and later made even more popular by singing sensation Rebecca Black. Possibly. Anyway, it's Friday so it's time for the last Roker Roundup of the week. The feature where we bring you all the important and/or interesting SAFC news of the day.

So February the 17th, and on this historical day, the prohibition era came to an end in the USA in 1933, but the London Congestion Charge was brought in 2003. It's also the birthday of film director Michael Bay, and Green Day frontman Billie-Joe Armstrong.

But that's not important is it? Not half as important as SAFC, so let's see what we've been doing today...

Remember 1992 FA Cup Hero John Byrne? Of course you do, don't be so stupid. Well he's been chatting with The Journal about our FA Cup chances, and his own memories of that 1992 run. A great read, and one worth checking out, and you can do that here - CLICK HERE

Lee Cattermole is in contention for a return this weekend if he can overcome a late fitness test, but even if he passes it, it's unlikely he'll start. He's also fully aware of the great form shown by Craig Gardner and Jack Colback, but is determined to win back his place in the team - CLICK HERE

Howard Webb is in charge this weekend, which isn't a particularly great thing, but here's the official website's profile of the man int he middle, including stats and that - CLICK HERE

Fraizer Campbell has been talking fairly openly too, admitting that we were knackered last weekend against Arsenal, but the lads are feeling much better this weekend, and confident they can express themselves a bit more as we look for a continued cup run - CLICK HERE

Martin O'Neill's thoughts on Arsenal's midweek hammering by AC Milan? That the game itself will have more effect this weekend than the result. Hopefully they're as knackered as we were. O'Neill is fearing a backlash, but backing us to succeed - CLICK HERE

If you were wondering what deposed manager Steve Bruce is up to, well he could well become the manager of Wolves in the near future. He's interviewing for it next week - CLICK HERE

Finally though, we save the best news for last. Our own writer and co-editor Michael Graham, who you probably know as Captain Fishpaste, today became a father for the first time. Massive congratulations from us here at Roker Report, and of course I'm sure the SAFC family will do the same.
