Just looking ahead a bit, we only have three EPL fixtures in January, with a nice 20 day (ie, virtually three week) break from 2nd to 22nd Jan. Obviously there's at least one FA Cup game in Jan, but it'll be a relief, I think, to have a bit of breathing space after a manic December. And at least we don't have the League Cup to contend with - West Ham, Liverpool and Newcastle all have an extra fixture....so by the time we play West Ham on 2nd Jan it'll be their ninth game in less than a month. That is just crazy!
With our injuries and suspensions, I've gone for a Scrooge-like 5 points - 1 x win and 2 x draws. We'll be mid-table by New Year, although I hope we'll recover from January as some of our injured players return, and we might make one or two signings to strengthen our depleted squad.
I used an age old scientific formula to come up with 10.
I printed out the six matches, with the total points, put a blindfold on and stuck a pin in one.
Unfortunately, there was blood loss, as I missed the paper and stabbed my leg...plus I used a knife and not a pin!
The blood was mostly on 10, so I went with that
As they say, B positive
