As I correctly guessed the Villa result and scorers, and then almost got the West Ham score and scorers too … I don’t know where this sentence is going, I’m going to abandon it. Was just trying to crowbar in what I’d done. That was it really.
Hull are at that level of doing well – relative to what people may have expected at the start of the season – that we have to sit through Match of the Day pundits picking out players from their team in a ‘there’s-only-a-top-six-or-8-and-the-rest-of-the-league-are-also-rans’ patronising manner: “Oooh look they have players who can kick a ball in a straight place, who knew?!” They picked out Tom Huddlestone recently. Lol. Anyway there’s a point in here somewhere, tell me if you find it. Of course, there might not be.
Another thing I was going to say is this: have I told you how much I love, and I mean ABSOLUTELY LOVE, how Steve Bruce’s physical appearance is a thing that people attack as if it’s fair game. I don’t.
Fletch is back which hopefully indicates he’s really back, and not that we’re a little short in numbers. I’m definitely going with the former – what an incredible thing to happen. Fletch, for me, represents one of the kind of players we’ve been missing.
Cleverley getting a good run in the team is good. Good.
Anyway, this post is all a bit serious … get outta here … save yourselves! Enjoy your Christmas.
Props to Ashley Young. He’s gonna need ‘em
Prediction: 2-3. Danny with his customary two. I actually think we’re going to come from behind twice, and it’s going to end up 2-2. I dunno. Chris Woods and Phil Neville to take off their masks to reveal they were each other all along, and the previous 40-odd years of their respective lives has been a sham, and it’s only now at Christmas that they can fully appreciate that. Did not see that coming.
