The more this goes on, the greater is the credence to the argument that we’re not playing a succession of bad teams at home… we’re making teams look bad.

Hornblogger: The half time entertainment was provided by Mark Falco doing Harry’s 50/50 draw. Maybe he’d not drawn a raffle before but he made the mistake of pulling out three tickets whose numbers ran consecutively. I suppose you’d be pleased if you had those three tickets. I don’t think they’ll be asking him to do it again.
