This is your chance Burnley

The stadium echo really adds to the bugler

/no, it's just dust

The Gulls very nearly poop on Burnley inside a minute

Bar stops Burnley's opener, keeper was off his line

I didn't have the balls to deliberately make a 9-0 prediction this week.

No way Fulham gets more than 8.

BHA looking far more attacking minded right now
 
2020-11-06 1:18:27 PM  
Big pass over the top to Welbeck but couldn't get it under control
 
2020-11-06 1:19:22 PM  
First half is what we excepted of two teams near the bottom of the table.

Danny Ings hurt? Time to change my prediction for the 2nd match
 
2020-11-06 1:45:16 PM  
I mean, I totally didn't pick against Newcastle before...

I'm sad Mad Mike hasn't flashed more cards here. Is he...dare I say, slipping?

Neither team has done anything to warranty a card.
He really should just card both teams for playing a boring uninteresting game.
 
2020-11-06 2:10:46 PM  
Why oh why didn't I pick this as a draw? Why did I think BHA would get this one?

Can he straight red a couple Burnley guys so I can get some predictor points?

He is Mad Mike.


He won't do it because he probably has a file system that dwarfs midpoints.  Gotta keep track of players and people who badmouth him. I am sure he knows I have doubted him in the past few weeks and won't help me. Out of spite.

Crumbs, that was a terrible cross

dietbubba: Crumbs, that was a terrible cross


And after such a creative nice pass for Lallana.
He should be benched for that.

No kidding. That was something I would've done.
I blame Danny Welbeck for not scoring on his 2 attempts in the first half
 
2020-11-06 2:22:06 PM  
That cross would have gone over Pickford's outstretched arms.

"Amazing, 7 games in and BHA are only a point behind Manchester United"

"I do not think that means what you think it means"

They are not racing at Santa Anita so the glue factory will need to look else where.

Watching Saint-Maximin on Newcastle feels like I'm watching the most gifted player in the school having to play indoor soccer with a bunch of disinterested pothead teammates during gym class.

Location doesn't matter. If horses are racing, there will be a death eventually.

In other news, for those among us who despise NBC's pushing of Peacock; NBC is basically saying "Deal with it." NBC has moved another "NBC Sports Gold" package to Peacock, this time their winter Olympic sports content (skiing, snowboarding). Rugby got pushed there a couple of weeks ago.

The paid Peacock package is the new Gold. That's the reality now. All of their motorsports stuff will probably be there next year. Anything else that is a Gold package will follow suit.

And honestly, the only reason it feels like Peacock is being overdone is because the PL match schedule is so messed up with no live audience. If things were normal with the schedule, I don't think things would be nearly as bad.

/that last part came up after a former roommate ranted about that to me earlier

Should be, but we are talking the EPL VAR.

Armstrong seals the win for Southampton with a nice goal slotted right in the corner.
