There really is no bottom of the barrel when it comes to away strips, is there?

...so, just the two of us, then. I think a lot of the other regulars are next door on the F1 thread. The clock change may have thrown a few people off too.

So, the Aints decided to go with a "park the bus" line-up right from the start, did they?

Nice flowing move by Southampton, but Redmond hits his shot just wide.

Everton does remember they are at the top of the table and are playing against a side in the bottom half of the table, right?

I bailed on the F1. It was pretty interesting for while, but now it seems to have settled into the usual procession, and barring a mechanical failure or accident, that's your top five, maybe even six.

Yeah, HAM is up to a 15 second lead, so that race is over with 15 laps to go.

Is Everton really gonna let the Aints climb from 13th to 5th?

Everton don't have any threat. They seem to run out of ideas at about 30 yards out.

For those who gave up on the F1, Hamilton won by 25 seconds. Fourth place (Gasly) was over a minute back, and everybody else was lapped. Not a great advertisement for the sport.

That is what happens when the only other team that could compete with them (Ferrari) got caught using some janky gear to compete last year and had to go back to using the actual stock powerplant they had. The Merc team has better engineers and a better team principal (and that team principal should be the one running the FIA, but Ferrari bought off the F1 ownership to appoint someone from Ferrari as the head of the FIA).

I remember I only found out about that because Andy Gray got shunted off FIFA.

Same way I found out about Perro Bermudez retiring from full-time commentary because his color commentary partner took up an office gig with Club America. Fernando Palomo's good, but he's not Perro.

Backstory please


Just before her first game Keys (while his mic was still hot) told Gary that they had better get someone down there to explain the offside rule to her.
Gray came back with "Women don't understand the offside rule."
There was a massive furore over it in the media. Keys resigned & Gray was fired.
Keys apparently called Sian to apologise & then, when she'd been interviewed in a paper or mag (can't recall which) & explained that he'd called to apologise, he denied it. It was all so stupid & that's why they both work at BeIN where nobody watches & she gets a regular PL gig along with WSL gigs & international women's games gigs.
I've seen her interviewed a few times now & she's really cool. Very calm, knows her stuff, knows she's human & not infallible just like the male officials.

Pista: Crewmannumber6: Pista: ClavellBCMI: Princip's Sandwich: Crewmannumber6: Which one accosted the female linesman last week?

Aguero, I think.

And he did formally apologize about that (and he still should have gotten a red card for that, but that is another story).

Fun fact. She's the assistant ref that was involved in the pond life that is Richard Keys & Andy Gray getting canned from sky sports.

Backstory please

Just before her first game Keys (while his mic was still hot) told Gary that they had better get someone down there to explain the offside rule to her.
Gray came back with "Women don't understand the offside rule."
There was a massive furore over it in the media. Keys resigned & Gray was fired.
Keys apparently called Sian to apologise & then, when she'd been interviewed in a paper or mag (can't recall which) & explained that he'd called to apologise, he denied it. It was all so stupid & that's why they both work at BeIN where nobody watches & she gets a regular PL gig along with WSL gigs & international women's games gigs.

My apologies, on behalf of your parents, for saddling you with such an atrocious name. It is almost as bad as being named Donald Trump.

I had to endure streams from BeIN a few times early last season as they were the only stable ones at the time.
They refer to VAR as the goal cancelling system (or something similar). Both deeply unpleasant individuals

I guess I should be glad my only exposure to Gray was the PS2 FIFAs.

Poor short corner kick that goes out for a goalie kick.
Nice job Newcastle.

Very surprised that was not given as a handball and a PK.

Newcastle is playing very good defense.
See if they can keep that up as they tire out.
 
2020-10-25 2:01:17 PM  
Since midpoint isn't around today, do we get to continually make fun of newcastle? Or say nice things about Sunderland?

i'll take a 1-0  by Jimenez for my prediction and ff team. 0-0 leaves Leeds in 4th which makes me happier

He will check the thread later and then into the file you go.
At this point, he probably has to invent a quantum computer for your file.

Sunderland are the top Wearside team in League One.

About time.
Jimenez finally gets a shot on target and scores.
1-0
 
2020-10-25 2:09:07 PM  
Who put Bamford in his bench? This guy.

/at least I have Jimenez

Stop trying to make friends with Midpoint.
He is not going to give you one of his shiny ladies.

aha, don't do anything for 80', whole game in the last 10'
 
2020-10-25 2:15:54 PM  
What a free kick by Murphy!!!
Surprised everyone by bending it around to the near post.
1-1
 
2020-10-25 2:18:12 PM  
Okay, now I need a Wolves winner for the perfect.
 
2020-10-25 2:18:34 PM

2020-10-25 2:19:06 PM

Dietbubba would be the winner, then, since he is one of two of us who do *not* have a double-digit negative GD, and his is only -2.

I got cocky when I reached 2nd place. Like Leicester last season.  

The pred gods have rewarded me with two weeks of swift and repeated kicks to the nuts.

0-1

it's in your rooting interest to see draws in matches where your team is not involved

a 50/50 W/L rate for your matches would see you well ahead of a team that only gets draws, like Arsenal did for the first half of the interrupted season

it's just math.
