  1. So this geezer is a good card player, eh?
    Is he up for a game of chess!
    If he doesn’t like me, no cards, yellow or red!!

  2. So we need Noble to time his tackles properly and Carroll to keep his wings tucked in .

  3. He’s from Chester, that’s in the north ? Enough said !

  4. yep another northerner ? What better punishment from the FA for daring to criticize the Warrington w@πker than to appoint another bias, not even fit to referee according to ex ref and bias Halsey, to make it a lottery and assist the northern baggies in their quest ! 😉
    Happy new year everyone 😀

  5. Yeah but this one is a homer too, so all we’ve got to do is fall over. Shouldn’t be a problem for our midfield! I’m sure Brunt and McCarthy will oblige and resort to kicking lumps out of Lanzini and Arnie for good measure!
