Back in Feb



I realise that the it is not clear from the new banner who has and hasn't got stars. So for a bit of clarity yes Russ and Faz have stars as does Monty. Bleasy and Phyllis don't have any and neither I'm afraid has Cheds. I hope that clears that up. 


Last edition until February as we at LM take our Bundesliga like winter break. Have a great Christmas and a very healthy 2015.
