    When you blag it on the final day...

    I've posted this before, but PL Tuck, this story is for you since you love martin so much!.... Feb 2006 we beat Charlton 3-1 at The Lane. Me and three mates, all of us over from Belfast, waited at the car park exit like excited ten year olds after the game to see if we could catch a glimpse of...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    Player Watch Dele Alli - Player watch

    I don't mind us having more edge to our game...we were far too nice in the 90s and 00s compared to other teams.
