newcastle fans: maybe time for an early start to your sunday drinking

I don't know how to feel, having expected disappointment and having had my expectations for disappointment disappointed.
 
2020-09-20 9:12:29 AM

hope the rest of the match goes better, midpoint

It's Sunday, Newcastle fans will have had a pint with lunch

Not that there is anything wrong with that

Injuries already.

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

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.

Dumb question, but is peacock free? Or would I have to pay for matches?

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.

NBC is making people pay to watch the matches.

Ok, Newcastle, what are you doing giving Brighton a sniff of something other than the bottoms of your feet and the bottom of the EPL table?
 
2020-09-20 10:20:02 AM  

Mr_H: At least that looks better then the Spurs this morning.


this aged well.
 
2020-09-20 10:23:26 AM  
So far, this 2nd half has been dull

Ok, I see the problem: Newcastle left Joelinton on the bench!

Sounds like the Huesca - Cadiz match I am watching.
Lots of midfield play.

2020-09-20 10:49:26 AM  
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  
that'll be a red
 
2020-09-20 10:50:02 AM  
That has to be a red. He knows what he's doing there.
 
2020-09-20 10:50:14 AM  
too clever for his own good there
 
2020-09-20 10:50:22 AM  
NEWS FLASH: Cadiz are ahead of all Spanish champions in the 21st century!
 
2020-09-20 10:50:31 AM  

medius: that'll be a red


Yep, upgraded to a red by the VAR.
 
2020-09-20 10:50:51 AM  
Er, except for Valencia, who lead them on GD.
 
2020-09-20 10:51:19 AM  

desertgeek: He knows what he's doing there.


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.

So many preds for a Newcastle win are jumping into the clownshoe-filled dumpster fire right now...

I'm only sad about the fact Almiron has achieved sweet fark-all.

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.

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.

Proof he was crazy:

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

Fun Fact: Shawn Michaels is trending because of that red card.

Best comment I've seen about the red card kick shown above:

"2/10, didn't slap the leg"
 
2020-09-20 11:16:37 AM  
That perspex screen behind Klopp looks like a bus shelter. It's about as clean as one too
 
2020-09-20 11:16:56 AM  
Still about 20 minutes until what should be either a fun and exciting match or a dull as hell match: Chelski vs Laggerpool.
 
2020-09-20 11:24:52 AM  
Why did I put 2 NEwcastle guys on my fantasy team...

Also, Peacock sucks. Stream just decides to drop and go black every so often for like 15 seconds at a time

Those Liverpool track suits look like an old Middlesborough kit

I miss Kyle Martino. Absolute downgrade going to Tim Howard
