Schalke with a pass across goal but no one there

and now a corner after forcing Neuerrer into work

Gnabry, from the top of the box, in the 4th minute, with the dagger

1-0

Sorry, I didn't know they started tonight and it was on ESPN proper. But what does it matter? As I type this, the BBC shows the score as "Bayern 7 (seven) - 0"

now it's 8-0

no worries, it seemed at first like it was going to go green at 1:00 but then it changed

Hey all. I assume this is the EPL thread (along with other leagues by the looks of it).
Fantasy deadline has passed but if anyone's been playing since last week or has had a team all set up before the deadline today, there's a link & code to join the Fark Fitba league in my profile. It is set to start from this week.
I wrote up a summary of last week's action here
So no table for us yet, but the ref's table is available
Fark user imageView Full Size

Dean off to a slow start last week & he has the opening match today to try to channel Jerome Brisard.
Old Traffic sees the comic relief preside over the Red Devils vs The Eagles while Atwell & Kavanagh can only watch as their early leads slip away.
Right. I'm off to find a stream that's not going to deluge me with a zillion pron pop-ups
 
2020-09-19 7:13:43 AM  
The short gap between the seasons has thrown me out somewhat. Usually by the time the EPL gets going again I'm dying to watch some footy.

But this year I didn't even watch anything last week, I just didn't feel it.

Here this week though, after I finally managed to convince my Apple TV that yes, I do have a subscription to bt sport, I'm looking at it *right now* on my computer.

We're recruiting for FFPL - the Fark Fitba Prediction League.

Fark user imageView Full Size


This is a simple game in which you predict outcomes of games in the English Premier League. Those predictions can be made in a minute - but the anguish can last a lifetime!

After our usual host closed down, we've moved to https://premierleague.predictthefo​otba​ll.com/profile/index

Joining is free. Please do so using something similar to your Fark handle, so we know who is responsible for which awful prediction in particular.

Once joined, search for the mini-league Fark Fitba Prediction League using the code 582582

All welcome, no experience needed, and it does help keep your interest up in the more obscure games. Chelsea Vs Liverpool for example.

There is no requirement to join in the kibitzing in the threads, only to make predictions for each round of games.

A couple of people are a few points ahead after Round 1, but don't let that put you off as the number of games will easily swallow up and small advantage.

Meanwhile, congrats to MrH, wh0 won FFPL last year.

It looks like both Everton and Wet Broom decided to show up and keep each other awake, at least.

Joined the new prediction league, interesting rules here where you get bonus points if the scoreline you pick isn't one many other players picked. Encourages you to be a bit more outlandish.

VAR might overturn that offside.

Oh IKTS, how I miss you...

I made quite the turnaround last season. Started dead last, worked my way up to my second-best finish.
 
2020-09-19 8:15:35 AM  
Also, that season was proof that you don't need no stinkin' bankers. I failed over 60% of the time.
 
2020-09-19 8:18:54 AM  
James scores just as the commentators have stopped verbally felating him
 
2020-09-19 8:20:00 AM  
Dean's in with a straight red for Gibbs
 
2020-09-19 8:20:27 AM  
Mike Dean with the easiest red card he'll ever have to give.

What a truly idiotic thing for Gibbs to have done.
 
2020-09-19 8:21:10 AM  
For a league that loves to flaunt itself as the "best in the world", they do lose their minds whenever a big player comes.
 
2020-09-19 8:21:39 AM  
I think dean also just red carded Bilic... do manager ones count for the table?
 
2020-09-19 8:21:51 AM  
Mike with the poleaxe, you love to see it.

They count for Mike's mantelpiece, so I think they should for the table too.
 
2020-09-19 8:22:29 AM  
And the halftime scoreline matches my full-time scoreline prediction. Either I will get full points, or this will blow up in my face (my guess is it will blow up in my face).
 
2020-09-19 8:23:39 AM  
Sounds like Bilic was 'politely' demanding to know why Mike didn't go to VAR for the Gibbs red. Erm, because he shoved the guy in the face and everyone saw it?
 
2020-09-19 8:23:43 AM  

Cyrene Valantion: I think dean also just red carded Bilic... do manager ones count for the table?


I don't think they do sadly. They should count as treble though
It's a #3 on the Dean scale

It caught a lot of people off guard. Didn't realize he was only 23 so that could prove to be a great short-term and long-term signing.

The Bilic one does seem a little harsh with that replay with audio, but if the ref says to back off and you don't... you always run the risk.

It was for Slaven's own safety. Mike is testing out some electrical deterrents..

Ah, some clarity. The managers aren't allowed onto the field to talk to the ref. At all. Apparently.

Everton saw Liverpool's match last week and said they wanted that scoreline too.

Some naive defending on the free kick there, they completely fluffed their attempt at playing the Everton players offside. Everton lead again.

I'd have to believe that if not for 2020 postponing everything, this wouldn't be happening. But with multiple events they cover all happening this weekend (one of which wasn't on their calendar at the start of this year), something had to lose.

Now, if this is still happening in; let's say February, then NBC deserves all the torching they get.

See my headline (I'm the subby for this thread). NBCSN as the Tour de France on. And from I've gathered, they can't just put sports on their other channels at will for some reason (regulations about those channels?). USA already has a Notre Dame game scheduled later today.

See my headline (I'm the subby for this thread). NBCSN as the Tour de France on. And from I've gathered, they can't just put sports on their other channels at will for some reason (regulations about those channels?). USA already has a Notre Dame game scheduled later today.


Somehow, I glossed over that completely. Do people really watch the Tour de France?

Might be the dumbest programming bump since ESPN Deportes regularly skipped La Liga to play the major golf tournaments around the turn of the millennium. Because god knows the people of the Caribbean cared about the green jacket.

I'd have to believe that if not for 2020 postponing everything, this wouldn't be happening. But with multiple events they cover all happening this weekend (one of which wasn't on their calendar at the start of this year), something had to lose.

Now, if this is still happening in; let's say February, then NBC deserves all the torching they get.

Nobody sane is traveling right now, so why not? Honestly, I have that on the TV while listening to the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the computer (I don't care enough about this match to watch it) and I'll switch that to the TV if I hear something happen in the race.

The rule about 3pm games not being allowed on tv in the uk is probably doomed, can't see the tv companies wanting to go back to that, expect some new deals to be signed.

"We all know Wilfried Zaha is better than Crystal Palace, with all due respect, he's such an electric player," said the United legend, who then dropped the bombshell...

"I think what ruined his career for Manchester United is when he had this true or untrue affair with David Moyes' daughter.

"Because I remember in pre-season he was playing in every game, but when that news came out... he was out of the game and he disappeared.


Sky has apologized for his comments on air.

medius: spurs should sign ozil


Arsenal fan here, I've thought for a while now that Ozil should be loaned to one of the London teams for a portion of his salary with no obligation to buy. Edu and Arteta are clearly not going to play him because he refuses to play defense and he refuses to accept a sale because he wants to leave for free at the end of this season. So why not make an attempt to move a part of his $350K/week salary to one of the other London teams? He wouldn't have to move and some of those teams might be willing to play him and not ask him to play defense.

Chelsea - not gonna happen. Lampard has nowhere to play him now that Kai Havretz has joined to play with Werner up top.

Spurs - not gonna happen Mourinho would shoot him. He's the one who sold him to Arsenal because he wouldn't play defense at Real Madrid.

West Ham - they play a deep back 5 and look to hit people on a counter attack with crosses to Antonio, playing a 5-3-1-1 won't work because Ozil won't have anyone to pass to, but maybe Moyes could convince himself that he could make it work.

Fulham - they are going to give up 2 goals or more a match anyway, why not play Ozil in a 4-2-3-1 and try to keep pace with other teams instead of lose by double digits every game?

Cyrstal Palace - starting out on fire playing a 4-4-2, but that can't last forever and their midfield will get overrun by some teams. Zaha, Townsend and Ayew could benefit from having Ozil threading passes, Zaha the most because teams couldn't focus on him any more.

So would either West Ham, Fulham or Crystal Palace take a chance on Ozil for part of his wages to help them stay up or maybe even push further?

As far as Ozil, he has to play some to keep his game skills up. If he is banking on moving to Turkey after this year to coast into the sunset as Erdogan's mascot then he has no need to play anywhere else. However, if he still wants to actually play beyond this season, he'll need to play this year and staying in London would probably help him take that "leap" to another team.

they are blaming the keeper, but if he had been playing high enough to get to that ball curling away, then maybe that pass becomes a shot he can't stop and then he gets blamed for playing too far out of his goal

So confused by everything 2020 that I completely missed all of yesterday's matches, including predictions and the thread.

Having caught up, I see that Manchester United are in top post-Fergie form already (how many weeks until we see OGS out! banners behind planes?), Everton are giving Rog Bennett the tingliest nipples in the world, Liverpool have bought something called Jota, and Arsenal look like a coherent club. Life is wild.

As to the MIGHTY Oxford United? Well, they've had a shiat show of a start. Out of one of the knock out competitions already, and two 2-0 losses in League One leaving them bottom of the table.

That's the form that acquired them the ironic MIGHTY nickname in the first place. Hopefully they can return to unironically living up to the moniker before season's end.

Also, Golf Bale is going to be playing under Jose at Spurs? What the what?

Tuning in to Bundesliga because Roku does not quite have Peacock yet. Leipzig just went up on a PK that was as clear as day
 
2020-09-20 9:57:53 AM  

harleyquinnical: Roku does not quite have Peacock yet


They did announce on Friday that they've reached a deal (mainly because NBC threatened to leave Roku completely if they didn't). It'll take a couple of weeks to get a Peacock app on there, though.

You have to pay for matches (it's their "Premium" package) unless you already get certain cable packages from certain providers (Xfinity, Cox), where it comes free.

Well, at least Brighton can move no higher than 8th with this scoreline.(and, sadly, Newcastle would slip down behind them on the table).
 
2020-09-20 10:49:33 AM

I don't think so. He was trying to be clever and wasn't thinking at all.  

stupid and dangerous and thoughtless and reckless and definitely worth a red, but he wasn't trying to kick the guy in the face
 
2020-09-20 10:52:50 AM  
Brighton should have made it 4 on the break.
 
2020-09-20 10:53:14 AM  
they might get another chance
 
2020-09-20 10:54:41 AM  
Apparently Valencia's Kang In wanted to take a free-kick so badly he tried to hide the ball from his teammates.

It didn't work. It also got him an early shower from Javi Gracia, who subbed him off at halftime.

One of the good things about the modern game is that gushers like that are rare. I remember seeing a fair few as a kid, notably for a Valencia-Real Madrid match where it stunned me that Kily Gonzalez was allowed to continue.

Then again, Kily was crazy. No one could've forced him off.

why are they asking Kepa to do things he isn't comfortable with?

they're trying to make him the keeper they want instead of the keeper he is

Chelsea ruined that kid.

Mane officially saying to Mo "I want a hat trick too!"

And LeSaux with a funny about the cost of the keeper Chelsea wants just going up.

Oh, boy, between being a man down and having a keeper who thinks he is a mid-fielder, Chelsea is doomed.

ClavellBCMI: harleyquinnical: Ouch.  A couple of Leipzig players being tended to with injury as the game plays on.  One player has a wound on the back of his head that was bleeding rather profusely.

How the fark did that happen? Boot to the head, or thrown object to the head?


unintentional boot since it was to the back of his head
