I've been up for a couple of hours already, and I'm still going to forget to tune in for the early game

Couple of inches of snow across the southeast this morning, I can see a fabulous super spreader event of 100s o of kids and parents sledging on the hills near my flat.

Looks like it's still snowing in London, but shouldn't cause any problems for the games there, all the home teams have good under soil heating.

Teams are late coming out... no one seems sure why.

Because nobody wants to go outside in this weather?

I like Luton, they play the game with good spirit. Make no mistake, if Chelsea aren't on their game today they'll get beat.

Luton are a team a lot of neutrals like because there's still a lingering feeling the league screwed them over in the season they were docked 30 or so points and relegated to the conference. They've had to claw their way back from something that really wasn't their fault (bad owners breaking rules, and it's the club that suffers)

it looks like the grounds crew wanted to try and clear all the snow before kickoff, but it was taking too long. So parts of the pitch have been cleared, but not all of it.

It looks like a day for stockings and gloves.

But enough about my sex life, back to the game.

News flash: Chelsea are on their game.

Pity. Would have liked to see Frank argue he should keep his job if Chelsea got knocked out by Luton
 
2021-01-24 7:23:39 AM  
Luton are 2 down and have had less than 15% of the ball.

This is rapidly turning into a no contest, which is a damn shame cause they're better than that.
 
2021-01-24 7:35:22 AM  
And that's what happens when you decide you're winning easily and so take your foot off the gas.

Game on.

(Kepa should've stopped that one though)

I'm surprised those words can still be written together.

Luton out late for the second half too. Apparently the clock in the temporary dressing room is wrong.

Someone took "let's ice the goalie" too literally?

If the MBM is anything to go by, Tammy's petered out after a good start. Where have I seen that before?

I had to return to normalcy somehow.

Traffic can be bad in that part of London

Poor penalty. Good save.
 
2021-01-24 8:58:25 AM  
If Luton had started the game a little less defensive this could've been a very different result. They sat back early on and that's not really their style.

As much as I like Manchester United, I can hold on the fish and chips today.
German Bundesliga action today with Schalke 04 at Bayern Minich at 9:30 AM today.

I see you're a fan of massacres. I feel sorry for Schalke fans.

Well, hoping Brentford give Leicester more of a game than that.

There's also Fulham v Burnley, but man, that has all the appeal of a dull Wednesday evening at the laundromat.

Although BT have just revealed we've got Glenn Hoddle on colour commentary for Brentford v Leicester.

Sigh.
 
2021-01-24 9:39:13 AM  
Lazily conceded corner from Leicester and Brentford punish from it.

It'd been all Leicester up to that point.

I hope Big Sam doesn't get sacked before WBA-Burnley, so I can use this:

Arsenal have confined that Ozil has signed for Fenerbahce, bringing that particularly long running saga to an end.

Fenerbahce, where careers go to die.
 
2021-01-24 10:07:03 AM  
So he's gone there on a fee transfer but...

Meanwhile, Fenerbahce have called on supporters to help them fund Ozil's contract, with the club reportedly £450m in debt.
They have reportedly set up a text message service through which fans can donate money.

It's like when Caterham needed to crowdfund their last F1 race. Why sign the guy if you can't pay him?
 
2021-01-24 10:36:18 AM  
That's not the start to the second half Brentford wanted.
 
2021-01-24 10:57:31 AM  
Own goal or De Jong give Barca the lead.
Not sure when the ball crossed the line.
0-1

Yep, Bayern is up 2 - 0
 
2021-01-24 11:18:02 AM  
Make that 3 - 0

That was fast
 
2021-01-24 11:18:57 AM  
Fulham's defense is so feeble that Burnley scored 3 times. Goddamn.

In Fulham's defense, Burnley are better than Liverpool

Ter Stegen comes up huge after the center back turned it over.

Liverpool had to put out an appeal ahead of this game

I expect Liverpool will be out to impress, lots of energy and too much for Man Utd to handle.

But a high energy cup run will be too draining and there league form will not pick up.
 
2021-01-24 11:48:53 AM  
Looking at the lineups neither side is going all out, but also neither side has decided to play the reserves.
 
2021-01-24 11:50:40 AM  
I'm just gonna leave this here...

Guy Mowbray and Jermaine Jenas on the bbc if you can find a feed.

Riqui Puig puts the game away for Barca.
Heads in De Jong's little chip pass.
0-2
