Absolutely wild they’re persisting with these games. Reckon today’s will go ahead and then tomorrow everything will be off

Extremely bananary banana skin this one for City.

manager at work (West Ham fan ironically so we don’t get to do bants at his birthday drinks later, which might mean we can go to the rearranged fixture?) said he fancied Newcastle to beat Liverpool the other night to which I said “mate have you seen Newcastle?” and I am just bringing this up now because the tsunami of anti-bants washes on our shores once again

Think they meet on Monday, so will probably cancel all the remaining festive fixtures then

Hoping tomorrow gets canned tbh.

I’m in two minds over whether to go or not and it would be a lot easier if they made the decision for me…

Also, to lighten the gloom, would anyone like to guess which Premier League ref from the 2000s I’m currently thinking of?

Uriah Rennie.

An anchor in these uncertain times

No.

Really don’t think they’re gonna cancel it tbh. Will just create further problems down the line which they won’t be willing to countenance.

No, but I had forgotten about him. Thanks for reminding me of his existence.
