One bit of good news already concerns the recent announcement from Andre Bikey that he will be delaying his departure to the Africa Cup of Nations competition until after the league game at Everton on the 28th December and the FA Cup third round clash on the 2nd or 3rd January.
Bikey said recently:
"The Cameroon manager is going to give us the maximum time to be at the club. The Africa cup starts on the 10th (January) but I think we are going to get dispensation for 4 or 5 days'
