On the lash now in London after a great day at Craven Cottage thanks to Eddie Howe and the boys

Back in the day under Rafa we played a half decent Leicester city side away in consecutive Premier League seasons.

Newcastle winning 2-1 and 1-0, with us giving a tactical masterclass to first Claude Puel and then Brendan Rodgers’ teams.

Coming out of the King Sour the night after that second away Leicester win, I made a flippant remark to my mate Chrissy Numbers… “That’s as a good as it’s going to get for a few years.”

Well today Eddie and the the lads moved us on and into a new era with this masterclass.

Leaving Low Fell at 5.45 am for a trip to York (via Chapel Park to pick up Phil T (no sign of Tommybear in the Perri again).

We hit Putney Bridge at 12pm for a few pre-match light sherries.

Meeting Tess’s grandson with a couple of match tickets after their appearance on Soccer Am, then it’s off to Craven Cottage.

Into the ground and it’s absolutely bouncing with wor lot making it an unbelievable atmosphere.

To be 3-0 at half time didn’t do us justice, with wor Callum leading the line superbly.

After the break we had five more genuine chances to score with Miggy running them ragged.

Never mind, 4-1 full time and back to the Temperance bar by Putney Bridge to spend a night on the lash with these darlings.
