thru black & white eyes Oct 31st - United celebrate the anniversary of the 5 1 win which SAFC have arguably never recovered from, by playing OK against a reasonable Stoke side. Unfortunately Jack Butland is in decent form and the game ends goalless. Not the best response to last weeks defeat in Wearside, but I’ve seen United play far worse (regularly) and sometimes win these type of games. Stoke, for the media’s current love in with them, lacked any type of ambition and were poor. When Hughes leads them to between 8th and 12th once again there’ll be the ‘where is

websites won’t stop mentioning Perez on the off to Man U or Spurs. This is inevitably picked up by proper news sources and is now a ‘rumour’. Surely Ashley wouldn’t. Also Perez is nowhere near good enough for that level, yet. He’s good, but a little over valued by some Mags. Loads of talent and class - but it only comes out every four games or so at the moment. That could change though and the club needs to hold on to him. Nov 12th - Williamson is doing well @ Wolves. Happy for him. He’s never been good
