On a cold January evening, warming news that the home fixture with Sheffield Wednesday a week on Saturday will go ahead, weather permitting, after Massive Wednesday were knocked out of the F A Cup at tinpot MK Dons.
The much-anticipated collapse of Crystal Palace's season gathered momentum with a 4-1 extra-time trouncing at Grim Stoke. The loss of Zaha should be the icing on the cake and hopefully there will be no loan-back.
Good news too that the hopeless QPHa have extended their F A Cup interests just as their overdue Premier league exit begins to set fast. Good Old Harry is doing what he does best and is busy trying to burn as much of their owners' cash in the transfer window as he can. It should all intensify their hangover come May. If the Ha's can go all the way in the F A Cup they really could emulate Portsmouth. Enjoy it whilst it lasts Superhoops.
