"hapless Fulham" has me wondering, what exactly is a "hap" anyway? Do I have any haps? Would I know what to do with them if I did?

...it's going to be one of those days, isn't it?

Also, let's get this out of the way. I bailed on the Southampton / Man Utd game not long after the 2nd goal went in. I think I made a huge mistake.

Robinson wanted to see if the ref would give a yellow in the first 2 minutes.  He did not.

Penalty to Fulham after a VAR check and... it's scored! 0-2!

OK, who gets sacked first: Chris Wilder at Sheffield United or Brodge?

Chris Wilder or Scott Parker

Every time I think Broge is done, he gets a big win that buys him more time.

that looked like lofts his cheeks got fouled to me

ref disagreed.
 
2020-11-30 2:02:16 PM  
Two major farkups by Leicester in front of goal in 10 seconds. Fulham can't make them pay.

Evans complained that he wasn't given any room for his free kick. But he elected to take it quickly. Can you complain if you don't let the ref move the opposing player back?
 
2020-11-30 2:04:51 PM  
leicester nearly get the full ham again 

the clearance was one step ahead of the attacker whose eyes must have been as big as plates seeing that rebound rolling towards him

Late to the game today, probably not missed much yet.... oh.

FA cup third round draw is shortly as well. I'll post it in here once it's done.

Just saw one:

8th tier Marine FC v Tottenham Hotspur FC

Only the 2nd team from that level to make the 3rd round of the FA Cup and they get to host the current PL leaders

How did Villa miss that?

Villa are certainly pressing for that equalizer.

Konsa with the turn and fire but cannot beat Fabianski.

not for me, either, but once called I don't think there is enough to take it back

his dive took him into the boot

Scalp wounds are often like that. The amount of blood is wildly disproportionate to the severity of the injury.

2020-11-30 4:47:20 PM  
I was convinced Tottenham earned me a point and had to double-check.

Then I remembered they didn't win-win, they only Mourinho won. 

My brain picked Chelsea, but my duodenum wanted Spurs to win. I should have split the difference.
 
2020-11-30 4:49:43 PM  
bloody heck 2-2

We might see the first COVID-postponed match in the PL this weekend as Newcastle closed their training ground today and the entire 1st team is in isolation.
 
2020-11-30 4:50:55 PM  
Unless defender on the far side is playing him on, his knee is offside

bullshiat. give me my perfect.

2020-11-30 4:51:16 PM  
Looks offside to me, and that is a fine margin

dang dang close i gotta say
 
2020-11-30 4:52:45 PM  
That is tough
 
2020-11-30 4:52:50 PM  
these millimeter offside calls are in the rules (sometimes, not always) but so out of the spirit of the game
 
2020-11-30 4:54:11 PM  
That dude is having a very bad day, missing the PK and just inches offside for a hopeful equalizer.

Bad luck, Villains.

Definitely.  Lots of drama and noise full of sound and fury, and signifying nothing.

medius: these millimeter offside calls are in the rules (sometimes, not always) but so out of the spirit of the game


I agree. Offside reviews need to come under the same terms as other VAR decisions: no falsely-precise lines on the screen, and if its not clear and obvious, advantage goes to the attacker.

What were they thinking.

it's not like 150 years ago when parking offside was what they were trying to prevent

AC: Valhalla taught me a cool term: deontology - when the observation of rules is following of forms rather than for the original intended purpose.  When the what becomes more important than the why.
