  1. It’s criminal when you look at the fixture list, that our game could easily have been pushed back 2 or 3 days to allow fair competition, instead we play 3 games in short succession, hopefully we produce another minor miracle and upset the odds by getting a result.

  2. On the flip side, do we get the longest winter break?
