19th Arsenal (a). Carabao Cup 5th Round. 0-1.

Totally uninspiring performance sees us out of the cup with barely a whimper. Disappointing.

23rd Newcastle Utd (h). 2-3. Arnautovic, Ayew.

Ayew misses a penalty at 2-1 down, they run down the other end a score?

Robbed by yet another bad reffereeing decision as Bournemouths last gasp equaliser was off-side and hand-ball.

16th Stoke City (h). 1-1. Carroll.


22nd Arsenal (a). 1-4. Arnautovic. LP:15th.


29th Manchester City (h). 1-4. Cresswell.

David Moyes has the team training WITHOUT the ball in the run up to this game, it showed as they looked like they had excepted defeat before the game had even kicked-off. For a 10 minute spell at the end of the first half they had a go, scored and should have had a penalty. The half time team talk from the gutless Moyes inspired a second half performance that can only be described as insipid!

MAY 2018

05th Leicester City (a). 2-0. Mario, Noble.

With that win and other results going our way... we are now safe from relegation for another year!

10th Manchester Utd (h). 0-0.
