Here we are again … simply enjoying another wonderful Christmas song!
We’re inviting our Twitter friends, and now resident thought sharer Iwan Lehnert, to share some of their ‘Pre and Post Match’ thoughts with us from now on. If you want to share, get in touch! You can still enjoy my nonsensical, confusing, punctuation buffets below their proper good ones… Iwan (@IwanLehnert): Monday was almost an […]

We should have got the win but in fairness Benfica were only denied by some excellent saves from Lindegaard (I personally at this moment in time prefer Lindegaard to De Gea, but only […]
While it hardly pained me to write from the point of view of Barcelona a few days ago, I certainly found it unnatural.
