As we come out of lockdown in midweek some of the teams are going to be allowed to have some fans back in.

Tier 1 areas can have up to 4000, tier 2 up to 2000. But still no fans allowed in Tier 3.

Interesting debate on Bt sport about whether that's fair, at the moment the London and southern EPL clubs are all tier 2, but most of the northern ones are Tier 3. And why is it a fixed number rather than a percentage of the capacity? 2000 fans in Anfield is social distancing to the extreme compared to 2000 in Brighton.

Mané in the bench. B...but he's my captain.
Looks like a spate of young ladies lying their wares for the first game today.
Usual summary of last week here
As for the refs

Attwell & Dean both in action today with Taylor confined to 4th official duty at Citeh.
Things are hotting up at the top of the table.
Here are my preds for the weekend (cue laughing & finger pointing)

(Oh, and it's also FA Cup second round day, not many non league teams left but we do have both Solihull Motors and Kings Lynn town left in)

Liverpool have a lot of injuries, including some that weren't on the list yesterday, so it's a bit of a second string side,.

Brighton:Ryan, White, Webster, Veltman, Dunk, Bissouma, March, Gross, Connolly, Welbeck, Maupay.

Liverpool:Alisson, Robertson, Phillips, N Williams, Milner, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Minamino, Jota, Salah, Firmino.

Fort William actually play today at home against Strathspey Thistle (try saying that when you've had a few).
 
2020-11-28 7:30:11 AM  
Don't even get the joy of one of the Robbies today. Ugh, nothing but Tim Howard

I doubt I could say it properly even stone cold sober

Early start today, and I have an evening change activity to go to the office for, but here's hoping for a good start to the weekend

Just an average state.

If you want to win this game Brighton you will need to finish those chances.
 
2020-11-28 7:44:34 AM  
The MIGHTY Oxford United are going to be playing the rescheduled A420 derby against Scumdon Town FC today. I think it's been close to a decade since the MIGHTY lost this particular match, but they're in the midst of a crappy run of form.

Anyone know anything about electric guitars? I'm tempted to buy my woman one for Christmas.

ugh, what the hell was THAT Nico Williams?
 
2020-11-28 7:51:26 AM  
PK to Brighton.
Easy call on the trip.
Young defender making a foolish challenge.
 
2020-11-28 7:52:28 AM  
And he misses it wide.
Mopay not having a good game so far.
That should be two for him.
 
2020-11-28 7:52:44 AM  
LOL
 
2020-11-28 7:52:50 AM  
Whoosh, just wide!

Easy penalty to call, thankfully no damage
 
2020-11-28 7:53:19 AM  
Brighton just can't score. They should switch to the Hove Albion lineup for the second half.

if its taking this long, its offside.
 
2020-11-28 8:07:27 AM  
Salah puts Liverpool up.
That is not clear and obvious VAR.
Let it go.
But no, the millimeter he was offside takes it away.
 
2020-11-28 8:07:42 AM  
A toe offside...

Try saying that SOBER
 
2020-11-28 8:16:57 AM  
So from what I can tell the 'var only overturns clear and obvious errors" applies to penalty decisions, but for offside ones it's 'the var is checked and obeyed'.

Now I wouldn't mind that if they stuck to it.

Consistency?  From ourVAR?  Never!

I think handball is in the same category as offside.

From the Beeb. Dan in London is less than impressed

I don't care if we have four spaniels in defence, 0 shots on target against Brighton is abysmal.
Dan, London


lol

This is pretty weak from the Liverpool forwards so far, and that back line is going to leak a goal soon if they don't sort their shiat out.

2020-11-28 8:46:12 AM  
People keep talking about how much Liverpool will miss Virgil Van Dijk but, since he's not been in the side, we haven't conceded seven goals in a game once.

Ouch!
 
2020-11-28 8:49:50 AM  
Jota's got another!  Now, what reason do they give to take that one back?
 
2020-11-28 8:50:14 AM  
Jota!
 
2020-11-28 8:50:23 AM  
Jota continues his hot streak.
0-1

That Kekana goal was a real boof moment.
From the women, Ingles' volley was my favourite

Salah is furious as he is replaced by Mane.
 
2020-11-28 8:54:07 AM  
Mo is pissed.

Didn't even say boo to Klopp coming off the pitch.

My favorite is this one.
On the volley, and having to get his knee and foot so high and to keep it on target.
