Kolasinac looks like he's hurt

if he hadn't pushed up, he would have had an open goal to head it into

The last related post in this thread was a doubt that paperwork would be sorted, I just added the nail to that casket.

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.

that was cool

got to see some of the studio feed on the broadcast before they threw up the "Coverage to Begin Shortly. Stay Tuned." card 

color bars, some noise, music, a spinning thing that was some sort of timing cue, a PA sitting in front of the camera counting to 11, a few shots of St. Mary's and the studio soundstage

Hey, even if the result sucks today, we got Bale back!
 
2020-09-20 7:05:20 AM  
VAR is just a Son detector isn't it?
 
2020-09-20 7:09:09 AM  
He was offside, but I do wonder how many phases of play var is going to go back this season.

I'm not on board with Saints home kit being anything other than stripes.
 
2020-09-20 7:09:43 AM  
What a save!
 
2020-09-20 7:17:18 AM  
Huh?
How was that not a goal then?
 
2020-09-20 7:17:23 AM  
Another example of the change in handball interpretation to 'any handball, intentional or not, disallows a goal'.
 
2020-09-20 7:19:58 AM  
Afternoon all.

Where will Bale play?
 
2020-09-20 7:21:21 AM  
How did that not end up in the back of the net?
 
2020-09-20 7:23:16 AM

Spurs turning up the tactical fouling early.
One episode of the documentary had JoMo telling his players to do it. Amazed they left it in the final cut

offside flag picking up where it left off last season
 
2020-09-20 7:31:57 AM  
Ings!
 
2020-09-20 7:32:43 AM  
3rd time the net has bulged. Will var let this one stand?
 
2020-09-20 7:33:13 AM  

Pista: Ings!


you have a live feed?

spoiled that for me :P
 
2020-09-20 7:33:25 AM  
In an alternate reality Danny Ings spent the summer getting the golden boot at euro 2020.

What was Dier doing?
He only had to win the ball in the air & Ings would never have got near it

I think I see the problem:  

Dier.

It's also live on Bt sport in the uk, which is how I'm getting it live.

It's "live" on Peacock.

So like 30 seconds to a minute behind.
