Do we have any updates how Olive Grace is progressing. It was only yesterday when my wife ( certainly not a football fan ) asked me if I had any news about her. Best regards from Florida to the entire Mee family and as CT said especially Olive Grace

A poingnant end to a difficult year. Thanks CT for the reports and it’s often said it’s just a game....which it is when viewed against some of the horrors of this year.........hopefully 2021 will see us all back on The Turf with the game back to being important in our lives.......

Happy New Year all!

Thanks CT-whilst we took all that pressure from Sheff Utd,, we forget that Ramsdale made two incredible saves too, from Wood & Barnes, that normally would have gone in

Very true and just how cheesed off was Chris Wood with the save he made from him ---even though we did score from the corner.

Another thank you from me. A lot of work must go into match reports and the nostalgia section. Much appreciated.
Think the game Ben last scored at the Turf was the one where we were 2-0 up and lost very late on 2-3 with Dwight Gayle scoring their winner.

It was. Only his third goal on the Turf, the other was against Millwall in 2012. He’s scored away goals at Chelsea, Bristol City, Huddersfield, Man City & Crystal Palace.

I believe she’s doing well and getting stronger. To have to go through that and then not be able to go and see her in hospital must have been agonising for them.

I hadn’t planned to write about Ben but it just seemed appropriate given all the challenges he’s had this year and then to score our last goal of the year.

That’s great and I am sure your kind words were seconded by all Clarets everywhere. Proper Captain is Ben Thanks for the update

Great report and a very nice tribute to Ben Mee.

Thanks for the reports, always value the reviews from a claret perspective.

Another excellent report to end another year of excellent reports Tony, much better than anything you read in the press. Well done on just about a perfect and fair summary of just about every match. Best Wishes for 2021, hope you can report on live football at some stage during the year.
