City win.

Brentford draw with Norwich on New Years Day. Should have won with a decent referee. Norwich - big units who foul and feign injury to draw cards. Ticket system still playing up. Always have to go to the ticket office as turnstile readers cannot scan either printed tickets or membership cards.

Over here they are getting rid of paper tickets. Reckon next season only seasons holders will have it and the rest will have to use their mobile for entrance. The club says it cracks down on touts and fraudulent tickets.

Sadly the way of the world. I don’t like relying on phones for tickets. Some people don’t have computers.

Paying cash on the day was much better. Prices were better too. No season ticket required just turn up in good time for bigger games.

Yes. They lost to Burnley today and scored ALL the goals. I dodged a bullet not getting a Fulham season ticket.

Meanwhile Brentford are back to early season form. Bees 3 Stoke 1.
Stoke have a new manager but still some of their old players Shawcross, Allen, that useless Berahino that Mark Hughes was foolish enough to sign.
Nevertheless they have a rich English owner who runs a huge online betting firm. So they will be OK.

Yes Crouch comes on as a substitute at 38 years of age. There have been older players.

Stoke’s Stanley Matthews famously kept playing in the top flight until he was 50.

-- we are level but have a game in hand, and mcfc has the cups to worry about

-- we are still in the champions league

-- we are ahead of man utd

-- well, good year, we finished 4th.

I was on the plane and watched Spurs-Arsenal. Soft penalty for Kane in my opinion and aubemayang and Ozil coming on late didn't do much. Was surprised City could only pot one against Bournemouth. And I got to see the 24M Atlanta United player be anonymous on Newcastle against West Ham. Surprised Mark Noble is still there.

On home performances Brentford would be second in the Championship table behind Leeds. Automatic promotion.

On away form they would be twentieth, just above the relegation spots
