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

Probably a first.


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.

Its not the same without all the fans singing it.
Arlo still needs to be quite during it though.

ClavellBCMI: desertgeek: Princip's Sandwich: ClavellBCMI: 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)..

It'd be a stunning feat if Southampton won it all. It'd be their first top division title ever.

Considering they used to be Liverpool's "junior team" (with all the players we've gotten from them), I wouldn't be against that insanity happening if we can't get the title again.

Given the way this insane year has played out, a Southampton Premiership isn't out of the bounds of reality (but I still want my Spurs to pull it off, just so they can laugh at a certain other team).


The only reason I can't be on board with a Spurs title is Jose. If anyone other than him was the gaffer, I'd be fine with it.

Only some of them. They gave a few of them PCP judging by the calls this weekend.

Chimpy McSquirrel: Pista: Langston: Saka's one of our most creative players. If he did his knee, so farking help me

Dontcha just love that international duty thing slap bang in the middle of the season?

I've seen a proposal to have to two international breaks a year.
A summer one and a winter one.
Both roughly a month long.
I would like to see that.


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.

Clear as day

I would never agree with that being a pk handball.
Blocked the shot that then came up and hit his arm.


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.

desertgeek: 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 last time they got promoted, they made a bunch of signings... and dropped right back down to the Championship.

Chimpy McSquirrel: ClavellBCMI: 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.

Yes the Shahid Khan way.
Keeps that money rolling in, no matter what.
Spend it not a chance.

Maybe they'd be better off if their director of football wasn't also overseeing things with a tanking NFL team and running a pro wrestling company.

/that's not a joke. Shahid's son is doing all of those things.


Shahid should only let him do the wrestling thing. It's the one he's having success in.

medius: Princip's Sandwich: Pista: I kind of warmed a bit to Moanino after the All Or Nothing docco.
But I suspect Levy had that made as he knew it was an unpopular appointment & wanted to get the fans onside & behind him.
Generally I thought he came across as an alright bloke. Bit of a knob at times, but that happens to the best of us I'm sure.
What really stood out for me was the persona he had when the press weren't all over hime vs the one where they were.

He's been more bearable since he was hit with back-to-back sackings. He hasn't really tried to be a locker room cancer since Chelsea sacked him, while United showed him that he's not infallible.

Peak toxic Jose is thankfully off in the distance.

/if you think he's bad now, he was *much* worse in Spain

his dad dying had an impact I swear when he melted down at United

never gets mentioned

except by me all the time

I was holding my nose when I posted that, because yeah, JoMo, but if it means my Spurs get the Premiership, I'll hold my nose and deal with it, while waiting for his inevitable ego-inspired ranting that causes him to quit/be fired when he doesn't get his way.
