First, a couple of match previews for you:
Scottish boss Craig Levein says that he'll call up Andy Carroll if Fabio Capello drops the ball. Carroll, who is eligible to play for both countries, has stated his intent to play for England, but this could get really interesting if Capello continues to snub Carroll. (Lee Ryder, The Chronicle)
Chris Hughton reiterated his stance that Andy Carroll is not for sale. Back off, Arsenal, Chelsea, and other would-be poachers. (Sky Sports)

Lee Ryder wonders aloud if Chris Hughton's latest sideline attire has become a good luck charm for the team. For the record, I am in favor of the suit.
