Hi all. Zaha's back so it might be less dammit-y than I thought.
Usual summary of last GW is here
& for the refs

Tierney's extending his lead over our lad, but Mighty Mike gets his chance on Wednesday at Neverton.
However, Tierney has Burnley v Villa who aren't renowned for too many cards. Despite Matty Cash being a fouly so & so.
My predictions, should anyone need to laugh

So... which of these first two fantastic games will I watch?

Out of form Newcastle vs everyone hates Leeds, or Palace versus Spam.

I can't decide, they both seem like they're going to be soul destroying in some way.

(I'll watch the Saints v Arsenal game later, Saints are the nearest epl team to where I live and lots of work colleagues are supporters)

Just found out that today is the birthday of both Brodge and The Spursy One
 
2021-01-26 12:59:31 PM  
Going with Newcastle v Leeds purely because they've got Fletcher and McManaman on commentary.
 
2021-01-26 1:02:51 PM  
Both sides starting with hefty foul challenges. Newcastle's player coming off by far the worst.
 
2021-01-26 1:03:28 PM  
Man Bun down,
 
2021-01-26 1:04:42 PM  
Dancers score. Zaha from the top of the box. Palace 1-0 West Ham
 
2021-01-26 1:06:02 PM  
Leeds away strip channeling the spirit of Roma. They're just as unlikable, so I guess it works.

desertgeek: Dancers score. Zaha from the top of the box. Palace 1-0 West Ham


Wow. And the fantasy site was "updating" today so I couldn't get my lineup updated and get Zaha back in there
 
2021-01-26 1:11:01 PM  
Level. Soucek makes it Palace 1-1 West Ham
 
2021-01-26 1:11:39 PM  
Already an injury substitution for Leeds, and a couple of other players limping around...

And it sounds like a dammit incoming in the other game...

I missed the injury. What happened?

meanwhile Leeds have a nice cross to a wide open man ... who flubs it off his shin

Llorente with a knee injury, didnt quite catch it as it was while I was looking away.
 
2021-01-26 1:16:51 PM  
Leeds with a well conducted attack 0-1
 
2021-01-26 1:17:13 PM  
Shambolic Newcastle defending
 
2021-01-26 1:27:24 PM  
Is it optional defending night at Palace?
 
2021-01-26 1:28:22 PM  
More damnits coming. Soucek scores off a free kick that he knocked in from close range. 1-2

And they nearly scored off the kickoff, but Post stopped it
 
2021-01-26 1:29:34 PM  
Ok, Wet Spam and Palace, you can both stop scoring now, you got me my perfect.

threeway collision in Newcastle, Leeds' keeper down after a knee to the face
 
2021-01-26 1:43:46 PM  
oh yeah, my preds. dammit

midseason slump making picks. just when it's getting easier to predict winners and losers.  d'oh

medius: oh yeah, my preds. dammit

this game seems to let you make changes right up till kickoff, so still time to mess around and lose more points.
 
2021-01-26 2:07:12 PM  
Two of Palace's defenders just clashed heads and both are down
 
2021-01-26 2:13:54 PM  
How many Newcastle players went to Andy Carroll's hairdresser?
 
2021-01-26 2:14:51 PM  
Shame there was a handball there cause that would've been an absurd fluke of a goal.
 
2021-01-26 2:17:56 PM  
Chelsea has just made it official, Thomas Tuchel is the new manager on an 18-month contract
 
2021-01-26 2:18:39 PM  
That goal was coming.
 
2021-01-26 2:19:05 PM  
Almiron levels for Newcastle.
1-1
 
2021-01-26 2:22:30 PM  
And Leeds strikes right back with their own man bun
 
2021-01-26 2:23:16 PM  
Man bun scores for Leeds.
Not that one, the other one.
1-2
 
2021-01-26 2:24:45 PM  
Most damnits. Dawson scores off a corner. Palace 1-3 West Ham
 
2021-01-26 2:26:41 PM  
One perfect killed (Dammit, Palace!) and another now in play.

Same I need Leeds to get one more

Tuchel's been signed to a 1.5 month year contract.

funny how burnley have managed 5 wins with their 10 goals while blades have only 1 with their equally poor tally

was talking to ma about how we complain about liverpool and tottenham not being able to score and yet these teams have fans

they must all be chain smokers, masochists who enjoy edging 

tantric fandom 

fantric?

Being a fan of a Burnley is far more about *not* being a fan of any Manchester club. A lot of it is about local identity.
 
2021-01-26 2:38:47 PM  
Good save by Meslier to push Shelvey's header over the crossbar.
 
2021-01-26 2:39:10 PM  
I have the volume muted on the Leeds match. Either its been super divey or really chippy with the tackling. I can't tell but every time I look up someone is rolling around on the ground. Usually Almiron

Some people like their teams to be hard-nosed upset artists. That was what Osasuna was in the 2000s and what Stoke has been for a long time.

If you told me when Burnley first got relegated that they'd immediately come back and eventually qualify for Europe, via league position, I'd recommend a psych ward. It might not be pretty, but it works for them.

yup, but it's more significant for some teams than others. And Burnley fans are very proud of not being fans of other clubs (especially Blackburn, but that's a whole other kettle of fish)

I've been curious for a long time why Osasuna has a lion on their crest and not a bull.
 
2021-01-26 2:50:48 PM  
It's now a race to see what happens first at Newcastle, the final whistle or a red card,
 
2021-01-26 2:51:17 PM

Imagine seeing 1 goal a week and only on weeks when you play two matches.  

if I wanted my sports entertainment to remind me of my sex life I'd watch solo free climbing
