Sun: 3 sunspots with none of the likely to flare.
 
No match for Stoke City last Saturday as it was an FA Cup weekend. Wednesday they play Everton at Stoke. This time I will not be there, it’s a late evening match and I would have to stay overnight in Stoke.
We also play West Brom next Saturday away. We just bought their star but unpopular player Saido Berahino.
