Watford then and a potential banana skin, as we headed for a record 10th win (not 13, oops) on the trot.
Lovely day, the sort you’d expect early in the season in Manchester, unlike at Everton last week when it rained.
We received a letter from the club telling us our seasoncards were no good and so were given a replacement paper one which worked just fine.
Watford fans couldn’t sell their allocation so whilst the bottom tiers were full, the top tier was half empty. Shouldn’t that tier have been filled first?
Anyway, we all know the rest, record broken, 12 points, ten goals, none conceded and Blue Moon Rising. Wait a minute, Chelsea lost at home 2-1 to Palace, Liverpool lost at home 3-0 to West Ham, Arsenal won 1-0 at Newcastle though, so 2 outta 3 not bad, it only needed the rags to lose at Swansea on Sunday to make our weekend! Guess what? Lovely. And we’ve signed Kevin De Bruyne.
Surely the manumirror wouldn’t find a negative headline? Well, apparently we’re obscene and we would be even more obscene if we don’t go on to win the title.
Steve Bates, surprisingly was very gushing on Sunday Supplement.
KK226 deadline is round about now incidentally.
