First game is on the BBC... rest are on Sky.

Rangers-Aberdeen at 12 British Standard Time, 5 am here in AZ.  I'm awake.

It's moot with the coronavirus, but Aberdeen supporters used to hate the 12 noon Sunday starts in Glasgow because there were no trains that left Aberdeen in time to get to the match.  Today's 12 noon start seems particularly pointless as it's the only SPL match today.

Lewis Ferguson and Connor McLennan are out for the Dons, and in controversial circumstances.  It seems that they, along with 9 other Scotland under-21 internationals, came back from the break testing positive for COVID.  A lot of questions are being asked of the SFA as to how exactly this might have happened... apparently COVID protocols weren't properly followed. Ferguson is a big loss for us, even at his young age he is becoming the backbone of the club.

After Celtic drew with Hibs yesterday Rangers could go an amazing 11 points ahead with a win today (although with two more games played).  But Aberdeen could get within one point of Celtic with a win.  I know which result I would prefer.

Meanwhile on this side of the pond, the first game is on Peacock, nothing on NBCSN until 11am. Remind me, why am I up early again?

Everton - Clean sheet... book it.
 
2020-11-22 7:00:12 AM  
Fulham (and Putney just on the other side of the river) is a pretty nice part of London. Not as up itself as Chelsea, not as grimdark as other bits just south of the river.
 
2020-11-22 7:01:13 AM  
Well that didn't take long.

Hi all.
Just had to bat off a few messages from Mary, who, in all honesty, could walk the 2km here & tell me herself & I missed the goal

Aberdeen's Swiss cheese central defence eventually found wanting by Ryan Kent, who takes a pass from Ryan (Monterey?) Jack and bangs in an unstoppable shot from 20 yards.  Unmentionables 1, Aberdeen 0.

We've got two teams here who seem to think defending is optional.
 
2020-11-22 7:31:06 AM  
Wow.
What a goal
 
2020-11-22 7:32:54 AM  
Unfortunately for the Dons, Kemar Roofe is on fire: should have won a penalty against Funso King Ojo, then finished a slashing run with a shot that Joe Lewis almost stopped.  Deplorables 2, Aberdeen 0.
 
2020-11-22 7:35:21 AM  
I wonder how many balls a season Fulham lose in the river?
 
2020-11-22 7:36:50 AM  
Three goals from Everton, all crosses from the left onto unmarked attackers.

Yet even now I still feel like Everton can lose this.

BBC commentator describes Fulham as 'attractive but brittle'. He's not wrong.

Nap time at Ibrox, 2-0 against us. Feh.
 
2020-11-22 8:10:32 AM  
And right at the restart Shay Logan scores...an own goal as a Rangers shot hits him in the rear end, the ball loops over Joe Lewis to make it 3-0, and I'm wondering why I woke up in the first place.  Rangers are our bogey team, no other way to describe it.

So the replay on the penalty... he manages to kick his own standing leg before the ball. That's a special kind of terrible.

I just think it's hilarious that Fulham have spannered their last two penalties in such spectacular fashion both times.

There's a pleasing congruence between Loftus-Cheek's jawline and Fulham's v-neck shirt. If I was doing GCSE maths, I'd be drawing parallel lines across them.

So, Blades and Hammers....

At least all the remaining matches are on Sky today, no more trying to bounce around to find things.  It's still too early to be channel surfing
 
2020-11-22 9:04:20 AM  
(gets up, checks the Fulham-Everton score) Ok, I predicted an Everton win, but I was thinking 1-2, not 2-3. Sounds like I missed quite the fun game. But at least I have only failed to predict one winner so far this weekend (dammit, Villa!).

They should have put Leeds-Arsenal in this spot, and moved this one into that spot (no way were they gonna put the Liverpool-Leicester match on any earlier than where it is).

medius: The bottom 4 teams are sitting on 1, 2, 3, 4 points.

The wild thing for me is how much Sheffield's and Aston Villa's fortunes have changed since the Blades were robbed of a win against Villa last season. Sheffield collapsed and missed out on European qualification while Villa survived because of that result.

Now Villa is a point away from the European places while the Blades are dead last.

At least this season there is an actual battle for the top of the table, and it does not involve either team from Manchester (and, somehow, Southampton is figuring into the mix, of all teams)..

Speaking of managers, I wonder if the Ancelotti Effect is wearing off at Everton. I forget which analyst said it, but they're pretty much right: Ancelotti's best quality is smoothing over a fractious locker room and getting them to be harmonious again. Then he starts to wane, partly because of his aversity to using substitutions.

There's a reason why he's not managed a team for longer than 2 seasons since he left AC Milan.

Chimpy McSquirrel: Princip's Sandwich: ClavellBCMI: Chimpy McSquirrel: desertgeek: I think Sheffield United are doomed to be relegated. Nothing about them impresses me this season.

I'm actually annoyed that the sportsbook I play on doesn't have relegation odds because I'd like to see the odds on them getting dropped.

I would have taken some odds on Ful of Ham being relegated at the beginning of the season.

I would have as well. It seems they are cursed to be good enough to get promoted out of the League Championship, but forever doomed to get themselves dumped back down the next season.

English Rayo Vallecano.

They don't make any signings to make them better for the Premier League.
Just keep the same team that got them promoted.
Not good enough.


The ownership seems content to keep collecting those parachute payments when they drop back down while selling off players who get them promoted or loaning them out, all while not spending any money to keep themselves up in the EPL and spending just enough to get players who can get them promoted long enough to sell off/loan out said players.

I wouldn't have given it either. There's no way on earth he could have done anything about it. He was on his way to the deck. But with some of the handball decisions this weekend, especially the Untidy penalty, that one was more of a blocked shot than any others I saw.

The EPL schedulers would still find a way to penalize the teams with international obligations by scheduling them to have three matches in the week before the break and three matches in the week following the break, instead of spreading those matches out into the weeks before and after the break, because the EPL schedulers hate having those international matches and penalize the teams who have those obligations.

Inside joke.
One of DietBubba's superpowers is take his recycling out.
Soon as he goes out to do that, Liverpool will score.

Looking at a freeze frame of Matip's handball, I'm stunned nothing got called. Did they tranquilize the VAR refs during the international break?

They delete the name & replace it with "CHANGE NAME".

They are suffering from Scoonthorpe syndrome I think

Pool quickly make it 2 but trample Schmeichel in the process and the foul chalks it off the board. 

Foxes nearly counter but can't keep the shot on target.

I think he just didn't realize where he was in relation to the post and was trying to head it behind.

There was an article in The Athletic this week about the hundreds of FPL team names that include racist and homophobic language. Among the offensive examples were "F*ck Richard Masters" (the PL's CEO), a reference to Hitler, and a reference to Jimmy Saville and underage players.
