Happy feckin' Crimbo.
And being realistic, citeeh (obviously) and maybe everton and Bournemouth (our wimpy fcukers don't like small pitches with the ensuing physical battles ), are the only games that would worry me. The shammers are deep in the brown stuff with their manager clinging on for his job, manure are absolute dogshit, and the chavs are the most over-hyped team I can remember for a long time.
Again I ask the question, with the exception of citeeh have any of those teams got a more talented squad than ours ? To me our squad is far more talented than all of those other clubs, so I would say that IF we put a good manager in place to organize the team and motivate them, then I will go into those games confident of a nice collection of points.
Of course on the flipside, if we appoint an average or rookie manager who is still learning his job, then our points return could be poor indeed
