Sad, bad news concerning the unlucky Chris Sutton, otherwise once again its good, positive, exciting stuff coming out of our beloved B6. New signings, international recalls, players returning from injuries, can it get any better?

I thibk it can if we can string a few results together. What's missing is a win against the top 4, its been ages. Just the odd one would really instill some belief in the squad.
