Over at betting.betfair, I look at the contrasting seasons of Fat Frank and Steven Gerrard.



  1. 6 goals in one half against Wolves back in 1965 and you couldn’t score one in 2009/2010.

    To be honest, now we’ve survived, one thing I’m fearing is a backlash from Spurs next season.

    Anyway, just wanted to say good luck for your match at City tomorrow. Hope you get the draw/win you need to put you in pole position.

  2. thomas, a big thanks and theat very nice of you to say. I’m afraid though we’ll have to wallop you at the lane next season, and a big well done for staying up..
