Hi all and welcome back to Banterbury HQ, aka The Nut House.

I hear you ask who are these stellar signings, Drum Roll Please …….. I give to you ….. Mito & Potty, The Chuckle Brothers!! Only joking fellas, thanks to both of you and welcome aboard the good ship Bant...[Read More]
FAVOURABLE FIXTURES SUNDERLAND – Southampton (H), Stoke (H), Newcastle (A), Hull (H) ‘Slowly, slowly catchy monkey’ may be the best way to describe Gus Poyet’s mini revolution at The Black Cats. That was, until last week, when they finally exploded at Fulham and propelled themselves from the foot of the table at long last. It was against Fulham though, as a word of caution, and everyone seems to be having a field day when it’s Fulham time! There has been a definite improvement at Sunderland though since the arrival of the new boss but it has taken time to translat...[Read More]
As we look through the best candidates for your captain choice for GW22, for many of you, there will already be just one name on your mind and it may well be that he already has the armband in your team selection page.

Newcastle 0-2 Man City In the early Sunday game sponsored by “Specsavers” Newcastle will feel rightly aggrieved after losing this engrossing encounter that saw City move to the top of the Premier League. Edin Dzeko gave the away side the lead in the 8th minute when the brilliant Aleksander Kolarov broke down the left and sent in a fine cross that was met by the Bosnian striker who tucked the ball into the net beyond Tim Krul. But the main talking point, and yet another diabolical refereeing decision, occurred in the 33rd minute when Cheick Tiote scored what should have been a thumping 30 yard ...[Read More]

Hull 0-2 Chelsea With the opportunity to go top of the league overnight Chelsea were always going to be a handful for Hull, however the home side have been very solid at at the KC so it was never going to be plain sailing for the Blues. Chelsea worked very hard in the first half but were unable to break the deadlock. They had to wait till the 56th minute when Eden Hazard fired them ahead with a stunning goal from the edge of the penalty area after he had avoided a few vein Hull challenges as he weaved his magic after Ashley Cole’s deft flick to Hazard, to claim the assist. The three poin...[Read More]
