Sun: One new sunspot but of the old cycle. So we’ve not reached the bottom yet. Unlike Stoke!
Stoke lost to Notts Forrest 2 – 3 at Stoke. But we fought like demons. Some defensive errors cost us. We lost again against Huddersfield. I think we are doomed and so is the manager. He must go. No wins in 10 games, only 2 points from a possible 30
