Hey all. First game for me will be no doubt bombarded by women who are either bored or rich but all seem to have their heating up too high.
The rest appear to be on my cable channel.
Last night's game was a bit of a disaster for me. I picked Martinez in goal, put Dallas on the bench, traded Klich out, & predicted 3-2 to Villa. I don;t think I could have got that more wrong if I'd tried.
But anyway, I have a write up of last week's action here
As for the refs, Attwell & Kavanagh are starting to put some distance between themselves &  the rest with 10 yellows & a red between them.

Dean's up at Anfield this weekend & he really need to pull his best blades out to catch up with Attwell who had the playstation gig at Villa last night.

Hasn't even kicked off & Sofia wants me to do whatever I want.
Well I want to watch the match, so I guess that'll be the last I see of her.

BT with a really long build up eventually coming to the conclusion that West Ham have a decent chance because there are no fans in the ground. (The logic being they've been thumped every time they've played them here and it makes the crowd nervous)

How did it go last week?

This new Fark autoplay thing is really tempting me to put the adblock back on. Obnoxious as hell.

was reading an editorial recently on a video games sire, apparently advertisers have now started saying they won't advertise on your site if the videos don't auto play. They spent an entire article saying 'we hate it too, but if we don't agree, no ads so no site'.

Well, it's a funny story.
I walked almost 2km & ended up in a pub where an attractive bar maid did actually have a small cat that she was playing with. She even let me play with her small cat for a bit. With a toy too!

/actually happened
//small cat was actually terrified of all the people in the noisy pub so she took it home.
///I could have made this post sound incredibly filthy

I thought auto play was browser dependent.

What a header!
 
2020-10-24 7:50:52 AM  

Pista: What a header!


*correction*
Reverse volley.

wow!

(as the Hammers make me happy...)

Why didn't Cancelo take the shot himself?

Too tight an angle?

C'mon, NBC, you're killing me here.

No, I am not signing up for an entire streaming service just to watch a couple of games each week.

Again, those replays of Monster Jam are bringing in big ratings I am sure

It didn't look that tight on the telly box  but it was on his left foot & it was a right foot shot really.

Get up, load the desktop to join all of the fine reprobates and degenerates we have here, fire up the IPTV, see Citeh is down 1 to....Wet Spam?

Ok, time to figure out what universe I fell into this time...

Well you see, Pep wasn't given $1B for transfer signings this summer, so his vision wasn't realized. As a result, his inspiration is gone and unspeakable things are happening.
 
2020-10-24 8:22:41 AM  
Has any manager ever spent as much as Pep? United gave him a run for his money during that absurdist period where they paid double what they ought to, but I don't think anyone's close.
 
2020-10-24 8:27:07 AM  
So I'm guessing West Ham would not be invited to a European Super League. Do any fans actually like this idea?

I really don't think so

According to Transfermarkt, Mourinho holds the expenditure record, with $1.88B on 105 signings, for an average of $17.9M per signing.

Pep is right behind him with $1.66B on 62 signings, for an average of $26.8M per signing.

Pep's managed for 12 years, Mourinho for 20.

BT Sport saying they don't want VAR to be forensically analyzing the game...

Does anyone want to point out Liverpool's last match and the offside call late to them?
 
2020-10-24 8:30:17 AM  
Every contemporary top manager in Pep's crop is at least $500M behind.

To be fair, that isn't forensics. That's optometry.

Aguero off at half time for Phil Foden...hmm.

That's certainly not what I was expecting

"Why yes, you are seeing a player in a Citeh shirt that wasn't bought elsewhere. You don't have to check your medication."
 
2020-10-24 8:36:04 AM  
Fans sound the same if they are there or not at the a London Stadium.

On another topic, Marcus Rashford is a saint. That is all.

and Pep shows he does know what he's doing sometimes...
 
2020-10-24 8:40:45 AM  
Pep is a genius.
Foden scores the equalizer.
1-1
 
2020-10-24 8:40:58 AM  
Good finish from Foden

He is.  the fact that he's doing more than the government really...

It's extremely shameful. AFAIK, aren't Wales and Scotland independently ensuring the meal plan stays in place in their regions?

This match is a bit disappointing.
So far I've only had alerts to tell me I've won a prize, an ad for fungal foot cream & and some weirdo ho hasn't seen a proper erection for a long time.
The 2km crew must all still be in bed.

edit. Hang on. Lots of girls in my area apparently. & she seems to have sat on her phone camera

Butt dialing happens a lot.

Sadly I will be missing the rest of the matches today because I have to go to work (ugh).

Another pop up ad it would seem

Thank heavens for auto focus. That's all I can say

so far this weekend, my 1 point last week looks like a dream
 
2020-10-24 9:08:04 AM  
Walker off. Cinzano on
 
2020-10-24 9:10:29 AM  
Nice save by Fabianski.
 
2020-10-24 9:12:31 AM  
Looked to me like City handled there before the handball called on WHAM
 
2020-10-24 9:12:53 AM  
Here Ederson, lemme kick it RIGHT TO YOU
 
2020-10-24 9:13:02 AM  
But VAR wasn't interested
