    Ben Stokes, Brexit and turning over the Citizens

    Well, that’s another season over. Now, what was I saying five months ago?

    Norwich City v Newcastle United Preview

    My preview for the Liverpool match predicted a 4-0 defeat whilst my heart hoped for a 2-2 draw. How long would Norwich City have held out had Grant Hanley not sliced the ball into the net? Had Marco Stiepermann taken either of his early chances or Teemu Pukki pulled the trigger a little earlier, h...
