Well city won 4 goals to one against Burnley so we are into the 4th round of the FA cup, watched 2 matches in which both matches ended in dreary boring nil nil draws, even chelsea were boring. So stoke have sacked hughesy and i kind of feel a bit sorry for him cos i liked hughesy, but being a manager is all the results game now and losing to fourth tier Coventry was too much.
So besides the footy I ain’t exactly done much else, was gonna watch spike island again, film about a group of Mancunian lads set in 1990 who wanna sneak into a stone roses concert at spike island, which really is a place and did really happen. So Caitlin buggered off with her cousin and I’ve mainly been on my own all day n then she fallen asleep at half nine, shocked.
