Morning all. I'm up plenty early, as usual, so I hope I won't forget the start of the first game...

Last time we had a Black Country Derby was in 2012 and it finished 5-1 to West Brom.

That won't happen today.

A combination of the cancellations and players like Ings testing positive for Covid meant that my fantasy league team had a grand total of 3 players that played in the last gameweek. And two of those were keepers.

I've reduced my exposure to Aston Villa for this week, but it's still not looking good.
 
2021-01-16 7:38:42 AM  
That's a harsh call if it stands...

WBA 1-0 with a penalty in the 8th minute.

That wasn't inside the area

Drop the Dendoncker

There's so little fight in this Wolves team, I wonder what's behind it? Cause they're not materially that different from the team that did well last year.
 
2021-01-16 8:08:36 AM  
Finally, Wolves tie the game up.
 
2021-01-16 8:17:42 AM  
Wolv'ampton with the one-two punch to lead
 
2021-01-16 8:17:42 AM  
It appears Wolves finally realised who it is they're playing.

I got that goal notification and muttered "It's about farking time, Wolves."

Game is now approaching 'I can't even' levels of defending.

Wet Bag refusing to give up on their post game pies if they win.
2-2
 
2021-01-16 8:42:10 AM  
And ANOTHER penalty. Made a meal of that.
 
2021-01-16 8:43:08 AM  
Oh boy I am starting to get a bit stabby listening to Glen Hoddle wittering on
 
2021-01-16 8:43:43 AM  
Another PK to Wet Broom.
Looks little divey to me.
VAR confirms it.
Slotted home easily.
2-3

Pista: Oh boy I am starting to get a bit stabby listening to Glen Hoddle wittering on


I'm wondering how many more times he's going to say 'it's a shame there are no fans here' this game, I think we're probably approaching double figures.

It's Glenn Hoddle, he probably thinks those tens of thousands who have died from COVID just didn't prey hard enough

At least he's stopped fawning over Jimenez.
For the moment

Well I sure as shiat didn't predict WBA to get 3

TFW you realize that Glenn Hoddle has not, in fact, been dead for years.
 
2021-01-16 9:08:27 AM  
This season is a nightmare for trying to predict things.

I mean, we're in the position of a United win against Liverpool tomorrow taking them 6 points clear at the top...

If you'd asked me at the beginning of the season for Utd's odds of winning the title, I would have said "less than Leicester in the year they won".

Realistically, I have to say that if both teams play to their potential, Liverpool will win comfortably. But if Utd play to their best, Pogba and Martial both turn up, and OGS comes up with one of those tactical ideas he occasionally has and Liverpool at not at their sharpest - which we've seen a few times this season - then Utd could steal it.

Based on his commentary I would have guessed a stroke.

/Too soon?

It wasn't that CL semifinal, was it?

Silva gets a yellow card for diving.
 
2021-01-16 9:18:16 AM  
I have a vague memory form many, many years ago of BBC pundits sitting around a table just ahead of the kickoff of a World Cup tournament, and one of the pundits said something really stupid about the prospects for the African teams. And Jimmy Hill destroyed him for it.

And my memory insists that the pundit in question was Glenn Hoddle. But I may be fooling myself purely because it's something I wish had happened to Hoddle.

Big Sam.

Pies all around for Wet Broom.
 
2021-01-16 9:24:40 AM  
good job big pie man, and fark you wolves

I don't get why this is only 1 point. I thought wins were 3 and ... now I'm not sure what I thought 1 point was.

15:15  Burnley  1  2  Man Utd   0-1    -2     1

I even got the GD GD!

In that terrible predictor, wins are only 3 points if you get a perfect or if few people predicted the result.

The latest upset in the Copa del Rey is Almería trouncing Alavés 5-0.

Mourinho to Bale: "Do you want to be here or go back to Madrid and not play?"

Careful, Jose. He might take you seriously.
 
2021-01-16 9:41:21 AM  
I guess I should not be surprised at this result.  Wolves have not been able to win at home, especially against teams they should beat.

Oh well.  Nice to see the Baggies taking this relegation fight seriously.

News from Northern Britain:

R****rs are 63675 points clear at the top.  Well at least it seems like it.  Celtic aren't really having a bad season, they're just not having a great one, so needless to say there's panic among the Bhoys.

Aberdeen's match at Livingston was postponed, for a second time, because of a frozen pitch at the Tony Macaroni Arena.  This made The List because the "Spaghettihad" has an all-weather pitch.  So what happened?  Well, what happened is that we had to go down to West Lothian--twice--only for the match to be called off two hours before kickoff, twice.  We're not the biggest fans of Livingston right now.

Fort William update: Well, there's no update.  The latest COVID-19 restrictions have suspended the league, leaving FWFC with the snappy figures of P 1, L 1, GD -10 after a fun trip to Brora Rangers to play, um, a home game. (Frozen pitch problems at the Fort too, I believe.) But--only in the Highland League--this leaves Fort William 15th out of 17 teams!  Turriff United have a worse goal difference after losing 13-1 to Fraserburgh and 5-1 to Formantine United, and Forres Mechanics just decided to take the whole season off.  Since the season has less chance of starting again than Fort William winning the Club World Cup, congrats on the Soccer Puppies avoiding the wooden spoon.
 
2021-01-16 9:58:10 AM  
So now after the Baggies won the early game, I'll be watching their near-namesake the Staggies (Ross County) host Aberdeen in lovely Dingwall on the North Coast.  Zum spass, everyone.
 
2021-01-16 10:03:42 AM  
1-0 Ross County :/
 
2021-01-16 10:07:46 AM  
It can be hard

They've had people vandalise the pitch in the past few days apparently. & not players either.
They're asking for anyone who knows anything to get in touch

Maupay should be booked for a dive there

Wet Spam in front
 
2021-01-16 10:14:47 AM  
my muted TV has just been saying "it can be hard" every time I look over

is this an ad for dick pills?
 
2021-01-16 10:15:31 AM  
I have a visceral dislike for Leeds that goes all the way back to my child.
 
2021-01-16 10:16:44 AM  
Booooooooo
