The season ends with a whimper.

April 23, 2011


Well , after that dismal capitulation¬†(again) there’s at least no distraction of European football to get in the way next season. The final 5 games are now academic. Liverpool will take 5th place – well done to them for investing when necessary and giving their youngsters a chance as opposed to Harry, who farms them […]

Spurs fightback (again) shatters rivals

Well, it feels like a win. Having gifted the opposition all 3 of their goals in a nervous start, we hit back with firstly two “proper” strikes from Van and Tom, before deservedly pulling level midway through the second half. We spurned no less than 4 clear chances after that equaliser to bury the title […]

April 14, 2011


Well, thats that then , the European adventure ends with a whimper of a performance in the second leg at White Hart Lane. I suppose we could have had a penalty early doors (although it would have been harsh on the Spaniards) and if Pav had taken one of two fairly simple chances then we […]

Vital 3 points grabbed and Jones passes audition

April 10, 2011


In a fairly surreal encounter, we made hard work of taking all 3 points from a Stoke City side who can certainly battle. They have now become an established premier league side, and I must say that on the basis of what I saw yesterday I cannot for the life of me work out how […]
