Stoke City 2 Hull City 0
Predictable defeat at the Britannia Stadium where George Boateng again leaves us reduced to 10 men, this time by fearlessly headbutting Tuncay's boot and getting knocked out.
Meanwhile this week we learn that 'property developer' Russell Bartlett bought Hull City with the help of a loan from .... Hull City. Yes, in the wonderful world of Anglo-Saxon capitalism applied to football, you can buy a club by getting said club to give you some money which you then use to pay off the previous owners. I think I'll see if I can use that strategy to buy myself a new house.
