At some point, I turn around and I can’t see my coat. I stagger off to investigate, and it’s not there. We’re still two hours away from closing, so I have to assume someone nicked it. I shrug, what else can I do? It’s only a coat (& gloves & hat) at the end of the day, and it’s not like it’s snowing outside. I head back to the bar and tell me mate. He goes across and looks for his coat, his has gone as well, but his had his house keys in the inside pocket! And he starts panicking!!

    We need a goalscorer and some midfield cover. Carroll’s just not justifying a place. We’ve supposedly gathered all this youth talent, so why don’t we ever see them? Why don’t we ever get a few surprises to come off the bench? more »
