day by day

4thJanuary: If it’s the start of January it must be Bent’s Not for Sale time. The management says it would be daft to sell him to one of our rivals, which should be the last we hear of it.

5 th January: Villa 2 Ipswich 1.Third round day should be one of the highlights of the season.

Bradford get a second goal from a corner, amazingly enough, Darren Bent misses the most open goal of all time injuring himself in the process, Andreas Weimann puts us back into the game and surely that’s going to be the signal for the plucky underdogs to fall apart. No, it’s the signal for the
