    The list of strikers shows that selling before buying isn't just a funding issue, or about keeping within FFP rules. Six strikers looks adequate,...

    I'm inclined to think it's something of a myth, that Hughes kept us up. Unless I've miscalculated, there were 8 league matches in 2017/18 after...

    If the Brighton keeper, Ryan, hadn’t pulled of a remarkable save in injury time, we’d have won 3-2. How goes that fit in with the theory?
