SAFC v Watford Who are You?: ‘your garden shed may be bigger than this, but …’

Jake wants answers: click his image to see how fans of other clubs have handled the Who are You? series this season

OK, he didn’t exactly anticipate the song our supporters will be singing at Vicarage Road later in the season. But our Watford ‘Who are You?’ interviewee Ben Clarke makes it clear that for him, stadium size doesn’t matter. And he has good cause to be happy with what he, among the regular 21,000 sell-out attendances, […]

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Hutch’s Patch: Watmore floors Stoke, nearly tops the lot in one-word verdicts

Jake: 'at least it wasn't 8-0, Rob'

Rob Hutchison is quick off the mark with his one-word verdicts and marks out of 10 after the 2-0 win over Stoke City.

Hutch says (referring […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2 Stoke City 0. Thrilling PVA and Watmore clinchers

Monsieur Salut writes: we’ve been as critical as any others of Patrick van Aanholt this season.
