Heading for happiness in the land of the shrinking giants.
Town set up to smother and counter, and eventually remembered that they had tiny scurriers up front, not Hanson. Both goals were preceded by passing movements, the only passing moments during the whole shebang. Town did enough, that's all.

We know that smell: the reek of the meek and weak, slowly descending into desperate desolation as mercenaries meander towards their bank balance. We know what a Bananarama-bound club looks and feels like and, without a heart and brain transplant, that's where they are heading next year.
Seeking leisure in other people's displeasure.
