Another night of Liverpool fans gathering and partying in the town center despite the virus. Even the club has put out a statement now asking people not to do that.

Villa v Wolves has always been a fairly tasty derby game, but given anything other than a win for Villa is a disaster, could be even more so.

Cyrene Valantion: Another night of Liverpool fans gathering and partying in the town center despite the virus. Even the club has put out a statement now asking people not to do that.



I remember people poopooing the idea of playing Liverpool games in neutral venues because Liverpool fans might do something stupid like ignoring social distancing while celebrating.

Morning all. I'm watching with the "natural" sound today. Both sides with something to play for.

...or I thought I was.  NBC seems to be playing the crowd noise on both feeds. Hopefully they will figure out in a bit...

By the way, does anybody know what is happening with Champions League places for the EPL? With Liverpool both champions of the EPL and holders, how many places does the EPL get? My google skills let me down.

And yes, Man City's place is still in doubt.
 
2020-06-27 7:42:53 AM  
From what I can remember, the extra space for the champion only applies when they don't qualify by other means.
 
2020-06-27 8:05:03 AM  
Wolverhampton *does* remember who they are playing against, right?

I'm in the US so I'm watching the NBC Sports app. TWIAVBP.

When games are a bit slow I amuse myself trying to come up with bad jokes around the players' names. Right now I'm trying to figure out something around "what Samatta?" / "Nothing Samatta"...
 
2020-06-27 8:23:52 AM  
Right. Time for a pie.
 
2020-06-27 8:30:13 AM  
If you're in the Uk this one is on BT but they have it on two channels for the different audio.
 
2020-06-27 8:41:21 AM  
right, time to fire up the NBCSN stream for the 2nd half.  gods I'm glad the damn thing works on console vs having to connect it from VLC to a chromecast

The ugh was more about working today than the match... and would Wolverhampton please wake up and put us and Villa out of our misery by scoring?

From your keyboard to their boots.

Wolves with the opener.

that's the old pepper!

Thankfully this game is over.
 
2020-06-27 9:31:17 AM  
Villa could play until Tuesday without ever looking like scoring.

Even after Wolves have gone home.
 
2020-06-27 9:32:36 AM  
Leverkusen already in the lead.
 
2020-06-27 9:35:37 AM  
Three minutes in and Bayern lead.
 
2020-06-27 9:37:35 AM  
Well, at least I got the result right.

/thought Wolves would score more than that
 
2020-06-27 9:39:05 AM  
Hoffenheim take the lead over Dortmund.
Nice hit from 20 yards out after some nice passing down the right side.
0-1
 
2020-06-27 9:39:10 AM  
In Watford-like news, Espanyol have fired Abelardo.

Being in last place, that'd normally not be news. Except that they met with him 2 days ago to negotiate a contract extension.
 
2020-06-27 9:40:08 AM  
9' in and Paderborn are behind. I should not have expected much from a team already relegated.
 
2020-06-27 9:52:35 AM  
Freiburg and Bremen both on the board now.
 
2020-06-27 10:00:25 AM  
Swansea managed to lose to relegation battlers Luton. Come on...
 
2020-06-27 10:00:47 AM  
Hoffenheim with their 2nd.
0-2
 
2020-06-27 10:01:13 AM  
Dortmund defense just stopped and Hoffenheim scores. Looked like a controller disconnected.
 
2020-06-27 10:01:14 AM  
Bremen are now 3-0 up against Koln. With 4pts and 0 wins since the restart, I regret only buying 4 bottles of Kolsch.

Never dismiss good Kölsch.  Just drinknit to drown the sorrow.
 
2020-06-27 10:08:16 AM  
Mitrovic just elbowed someone in the face. Not a card since the ref didn't see it. Amazing.
 
2020-06-27 10:09:48 AM  
cuisance with a top shelf shot curled in for BM
 
2020-06-27 10:12:28 AM  
And L**ds go 1 up, because of course.
 
2020-06-27 10:15:05 AM  
"Fans" showed up to Espanyol's stadium and graffiti'd threats towards the team saying "You'll run what you haven't on the pitch. Toying with our passion carries consequences. Barcelona's a small place."

Picture of the message. Bemused by their dedication to correct punctuation.
 
2020-06-27 10:16:53 AM  
Wolsfburg keeper handles outside the box, but it looks like he was just covering his face and the ball was going to hit him anyway.  No call but announcer say it should have been red. I'm more on the fence. I can see why the no call and I can see why he could have gotten a red.  Borderline cases like this create controversy.
 
2020-06-27 10:18:03 AM  
I thought they'd split the difference and give BM a freekick, but no card. The middle path.
 
2020-06-27 10:19:50 AM  
Wolsfburg player uses BM player to score. Ref says foul, no goal. 

Announcer "maybe in England that would be a goal."  Probably right.
 
2020-06-27 10:38:26 AM  
Hoffenheim make it 3.  What wretched defending.
