  1. Well now. Andy Carroll threatening to be somewhat less useless than normal here. C’mon Andy, you don’t want to get recalled to Liverpool, do you?

  2. I’ll take that given our dire away record. It’s still a tight table though.

    Fancied us to get a point, dunno why. Good goal by all accounts. Fulham will be an interesting match on Saturday without Hangeland.

    Nzonzi is our best summer signing for me, we could just do with another like him. Bargain buy from Venkys.

    Anyone coming over to Manchester before Christmas should have a good time, the German Christmas Market was up and running today. Excellent entertainment if you’re off to The Etihad or Old Trafford.

  3. What was that tantrum from carrol all about when he came off… He has a foul mouth jeez!

    I also wanted to take this time to recognize the vey nice passing movent that led to the corner, which was also very nice and the opening goal.

    I dont see why Crouch gets penalized for being tall without doing anything wrong still.
