Jake: ‘2016/17 season, bog off and don’t come back’


Rob Hutchison – inexplicably renamed Ron when this first appeared – gets to lots of games, almost all of them away since he’s exiled in the south. He and his daughter, Olivia, enjoy the day out, like meeting up with old and new friends and then – for the most part – endure the football. Here are Rob’s final one-word ratings of the season after watching the champions tear us apart at Stamford Bridge. ‘And so it’s done,’ says our man of few words. ‘Thank God for that.’ Monsieur Salut’s ratings at ESPN FC appear in parentheses and are not so different …

    I am reading that bookies were offering odds on John Terry being substituted in the 26th minute and that they have paid out thousands to punters who staked money.

    I am also reading that the F.A. are “relaxed” about the situation even though Moyes admits that Pickford deliberately kicked the ball into touch so that Chelsea could “celebrate” Terry’s departure.

    I’m wondering how Sutton United keeper Wayne Shaw is feeling about that. Another instance of one law for the big boys and another for a big boy at a small club.
