Anyone see the Hotel inspector at the Green Man at Wembley? Or what about Ian Hislop at our old hometown in Conisbrough Castle, Ivanhoe and all that?
What about the Rev? Brilliant. Just trying to take my mind off City.
Strange weekend. Chelsea lost at home to Sunderland, Arsenal won at Hull, Liverpool (seen how Sterling runs?) won at Norwich and Everton beat the rags at home so things are getting tight at the top.
It makes the game v West Brom even more important and we need to be more like the last ten minutes against Sunderland and not the previous 80.
Been busy getting the KK 215 subscriptions in the post, duly done, and it’s on sale at tomorrow night’s game. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain!
Here’s the It’s A Fix extract from KK214 :
33) MONDAY APRIL 21ST : WEST BROM (HOME) KO 8PM
Third season in the Prem (this time) Last trophy FA Cup 1968, recent connection Ishmael Miller (now at Forest or Yeovil) 134th lg meeting.
Some celeb fans : Frank Skinner, Julie Walters, Lennie Henry, Eric Clapton, Ronnie Wood, Cat Deeley, Judas Priest, Adrian Goldberg, Adrian Chiles, Dave Haslam, KK subscriber Roy Carmichael
This season so far : They’re in 16th place with 33 points from 33 games, 3 points above safety, with 3 win 6 draws and 7 losses away from home
At the Hawthorns in December it was a 3-2 City win. The Blues went ahead through Aguero (9), Toure (24,74 pen) and were coasting but Albion pulled two back through Pantillimon (85OG) and Anichebe (90) but we held on for the win. Crowd was 22,943 with 2,571 Blues
In the Capital One Cup they beat Newport County 3-0 at home, but drew 1-1 then lost on pens to Arsenal at home.
In the FA Cup they lost 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace in the 3rd rd
Form at home to West Brom : Last season it was that 1-0 win in May just before the Cup final when we thought we were saving ourselves. Dzeko got the goal in the 35th minute. Crowd was 46,158 with 515 Baggies
Prior to that it’s been 2 wins 2 draws and the one loss (2-1) in 2002/03.
For City : WWWWDDL
Comment : In the January window there were no ins but the main out was Shane Long
They over achieved last season, mainly thanks to Lukaku’s input and Steve Clarke paid the price for not emulating those heights this. Pepe Mel’s taken over and results haven’t improved much but they finally got a win at Swansea and are battling to stay up. Nicolas Anelka has disgraced himself with the Quinelle (when he was with us it was ‘kinell more often than not!) gesture so we won’t be seeing him. Win.
WTWTWShite: Averaged 9,134 in 1986/87 and this season it’s 25,169.
