It is hard to believe another Premier League season comes to an end tomorrow. It feels like I’ve only seen half a dozen games. There have been tears and cheers. That’s what football does to us. Back in August if someone had offered us a mathematical chance of finishing fourth I think the general mood […]

Heart pounding? Getting nervous yet. Valencia away is a little over 24 hours away as I type. 3-1 up from the first leg, what could possibly go wrong? Our away record, you say? Yes, our last two aways have seen us ship three goals to Wolves and Leicester, but you may prefer to think of […]

Dear ‘holics, apologies. This is a broken blogger. Over an hour I have worked on the preview. It was a rare good one, honest.

Away to Watford. Sokratis Papastathopoulos suspended, and Laurent Koscielny may not have two games in him this week, so how does Unai solve that little conundrum?
