I feel like i've turned up at the office at 9am the day after the christmas party and no one is in.
 
2014-01-01 08:35:32 AM
I'm in. Happy new year. Would be better with a cheeky Swansea draw here

Can't believe Ole is even considering Cardiff. What's a good word for being really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really disappointed in someone?

City on the road against an inferior opponent.  I'm shocked they're level at 1, TBH.
 
2014-01-01 08:50:17 AM
I am so tired right now.
All I want for New Years is a Liverpool win.

Afternoon all.

Three 6 pointers today.

now 2-1, but was surprised to see it 1-1 for so long.

YAYA!

Sitting on a perfect now, but wouldn't mind that changing
 
2014-01-01 09:09:38 AM
They didn't give Zabaleta an assist earlier. Fantasy problems

I had 2-1 City so boo on that.  Maybe Swansea can score again and I'll get GD
 
2014-01-01 09:33:47 AM
I'm here, but just barely. I'd still be sleeping but for a nasty cough which robbed me of some well-needed sleep.

Morning, all.

Man City is 7-1-1 (22 points) against the top half of the table.
Everton is 5-3-1 (18)
Arsenal is 5-2-2 (17)
Chelsea is 4-3-2 (15)
Newcastle is 3-2-4 (11)
Man United is 2-3-4 (9)
Tottenham is 2-3-4 (9)
Southampton is 2-3-4 (9)
Liverpool is 2-2-5 (8)
Hull is 2-0-7 (6)

But Liverpool is the only team not to lose to a bottom ten team.  The only dropped points was a draw against Swansea.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, and Tottenham all have a single loss and a draw against the bottom ten.

I quote desertgeek from the last EPL thread:

If you look at road games, here's the tough ones left for each of the top teams (presented in order of how I pulled them up)

Liverpool: Man Utd
Arsenal: Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, Everton
Chelsea: Man City, Liverpool
Everton: Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle
Man City: Newcastle, Tottenham, Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton
Man Utd: Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle, Everton
Newcastle: Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool (final day of the season)
Tottenham: Man Utd (Wednesday), Newcastle, Chelsea, Liverpool

So Man City still has to visit 6 of the current top 8 teams. Only Sunderland has more visits to top 8 teams still to come at 7, with 2 other teams tied with Citeh. Conversely, no team has as few such games left as Liverpool does. Everyone else has at least 2 of the 8 to visit.
 
2014-01-01 09:36:14 AM
Swans! I'd like to see this score hold for goal differential, but Swans coming back with one more in stoppage time would be brilliant
 
2014-01-01 09:37:59 AM
Good way to start the New Year off.

BBC's Tom Rostance with a Freddy Adu shout. Heh.

Has there ever been a more hyped player to do fark all with their career in footy? I can't think of one of the top of my head.

Perversely, the fixture list has done City a huge favor. If they had visited the other top teams in the first half of the season, they likely would have lost to many of them. But now they get to visit them just as their away form is starting to come right.

I would actually prefer to see Liverpool win the league this year than City, and I never thought I would say that.

SUAREZ!!!
First to 20 again!

Wait, scratch that. Barely off.

Mierallas slams a shot against the crossbar for Everton.  Still nil-nil.
 
2014-01-01 10:37:42 AM
AGGER!!

Yessssss

Bradley Johnson puts Norwich 1-0 up
 
2014-01-01 10:45:09 AM
Everything but the finish. Great play from Liverpool.
 
2014-01-01 10:46:22 AM
Kevin Nolan gets sent off. Didn't he just come back from a ban?
 
2014-01-01 10:46:34 AM
Chamakh should be off and then a Palace player throws himself to the ground for a penalty.

1-1
 
2014-01-01 10:47:10 AM
Mirallas hits the post on a great free kick, but still can't get a goal.  Still nil-nil at the half.
 
2014-01-01 10:48:23 AM
Apparently Kevin Nolan has been sent off for West Ham.

If Fulham can't win this game - at home, against ten men, fellow relegation scrapper with no central defenders and no strikers - then they are going down.

Every American ought to notice Everton. Howard is having a fantastic year.

Personally - they are the only team I really notice. I only pay attention to others to see where they are in relation to the Toffees.

Timmy is great, and is a big part of Everton's table position right now.

Mirallas' misses come back to haunt Everton as Stoke go up 1 at home.
 
2014-01-01 11:08:08 AM
SUAREZ!!!

THAT'S 20!!! FOR REAL THIS TIME!!!!
What a pearler free kick.
 
2014-01-01 11:08:12 AM
Glorious freekick by Suarez.
 
2014-01-01 11:09:16 AM
You'll never guess who just scored for Liverpool.
 
2014-01-01 11:10:06 AM
Assaidi has been a class act for Stoke. Can't wait for him to come back into our side next season.

Let's see if Lukaku can get in behind Stoke's defense.

WHY DO YOU SIMULATE WHEN THE GOAL IS WIDE OPEN?
