Hello all.
Another weekend of flaming predictions helped warm the house all week &, with the festive fixture madness, the next 3 weeks could rival Piper Alpha.
Usual GW summary is here
As for the refs. This is the week Dean could storm the top of the table. With Attwell & Tierney benched this week, & Oliver only managing 3 yellows yesterday, Mighty Mike can take advantage if he plays his cards right (yeah, I know)

Now there's a piece of trivia from Ian Darke...

This is the oldest fixture in the league, the very first football league game ever was wolves v Villa.

And we get Hoddle as the colour commentator. Happy happy joy joy.
 
2020-12-12 7:45:32 AM  
Might Mike is the ref for early game.
Trying to scare the rest of the teams with the bloodbath that will surely happen.
 
2020-12-12 7:46:05 AM  
And there's the start of cardness.
 
2020-12-12 7:47:27 AM  
Yay! Go Mike go!

Nice stop from Martinez

Mike Dean came with extra weapons today?

And as I posted that:

Men in Blazers  @MenInBlazers

Congratulations to this handsome demigod who has just plowed through the 3,000 Yellow Card mark on his career as if the achievement meant nothing to him. 4 yellows in this first half has taken him to 3,002. Wrist Strength born of training and onanism
 
2020-12-12 8:19:25 AM  
It's a very tetchy game this, no particularly nasty fouls going in, but lots and lots of chipping away at ankles.
 
2020-12-12 8:20:08 AM  
17 fouls, 4 cards

Oh really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want VAR to be aborted.

I'm not willing to do the math, but I'm pretty sure I am at the bottom of the table for points per played match.  

My "play every game" strategy is kind of halfway working. Maybe if I whole-assed my picks I'd be sitting nearer the top.

I don't know which channel you're watching but on BT sports they were outlining the recent tweak to the handball law with a diagram provided by the PL. Only the red zone is considered a handball zone

So only left arm counts as a handball according to the diagram

Are there more players wearing the tracking transmitter packs this year, or am I just noticing it more? Looks like they've been allowed for a few years, but I don't really recall them from before this year.

I'd wear a long sleeve every match.

There's going to be a brown zone near the top of the arm that will sometimes be a handball and sometimes not. Unless VAR can drop a line of demarcation there as well via algorithm.
 
2020-12-12 9:10:49 AM  
That was one of the poorest free kicks I've ever seen.
 
2020-12-12 9:11:41 AM

He probably volunteered for this match because he knew it would shoot him to the top
