*We join the lads gearing up for their match against Liverpool*

Baker: So Gabby, you said you would help me prepare for Suarez?

Gabby: Yes I did Nathan, yes I did.

*Gabby dips a rag in some black polish and approaches Baker’s face with it*

Baker: Whoa! WHOA! I’m not doing that Gabby…

Gabby: Come on Nath’ he’ll most likely not beat you up, just say some nasty stuff and….

Baker: It’s not Suarez, people will be mad, they’ll think I’m … You know a bit ‘Big Ron’.

Gabby: Don’t be silly Nath’ when have I ever steered you wrong?

Baker: You said ‘don’t bother with Ivanovic, he’s just coming back from injury so he won’t be bothered’

Gabby: Oh yeah … I DID say that didn’t I….

Baker: Yeah and ‘Forget about Torres, he doesn’t even like to score any more’

Gabby (chuckling): Oh yeah, seems I was wrong.

Baker: Yeah, kind of!

Gabby: doesn’t matter anyway, they’re not going to have a ‘keeper so I should be scoring for fun, well if Emile doesn’t block all my shots anyway.

Baker: … Um…. They’re going to have ‘keeper Gabby.

Gabby: Nah, Reina got sent off, so they’ll probably just play Andy Caroll … Who doesn’t like scoring goals by the way so don’t bother with him.

Baker: Um….If it’s all the same I’ll defend against him anyway if he plays, which he probably won’t, because they will be playing a ‘keeper.

Gabby: Fine Nathan, you carry on, you’ll never get the captain’s headband with that attitude.

Baker: It’s an armband.

Gabby: Now that makes sense! I mean at first I thought it was making my head throb because it was making me smarter but… Unicorns…. Then dancing kittens?

Baker: Um… Maybe you should take it off.

Gabby: Maybe I should you great big talking cucumber you!

*Gabby collapses in a heap. Baker, with difficulty, removes the band from his head, runs it around Gabby’s arm and pats him on the shoulder* and sits with him ’til he comes around*
