[Editor’s note: I discovered this Hoddle fragment in the editorial queue this morning. One can only assume that Jake has been sucked into the vortex of parental duty. In the interest of historical accuracy, I am posting the Hoddle without additional edits. Consider it a community Hoddle and feel free to post your links in the comments, with apologies for the lateness. —Menno]
We may not have deserved the full three points yesterday, but we got them thanks to Christian. Of course, since Chelsea thumped Southampton on Tuesday that simply means we have held serve. But with Chelsea facing Everton before our showdown at the Lane with Arsenal this Sunday there is a real chance that we may gain ground on the Blues this weekend. We’ll see.
