Thanks. Yeah, some games we've really impressed in, others not so. Yep, really up for it, cant wait for the season to start! How's your pre-season gone? :D Up the U's!

We're unbeaten in 8, including wins at Palace and against Wigan so are strangely optimistic. It's a little...unnerving!

Good report, Steve. Thanks very much! Can't wait for Norwich away!!
