Surely Saints losing streak won't continue today right? Right?
 
2021-03-06 7:05:13 AM  
Morning all.

So, does anybody understand this week's handball rule?

HugeMistake: So, does anybody understand this week's handball rule?


it's not actually changing until the end of the season (probably before the European championships, assuming they happen)

As far as I can tell...

At the moment any handball in the buildup to a goal, whether accidental or not, disallows the goal.

The change is only deliberate handball in the buildup will be called, though if the final touch for the goal is handball then the goal won't stand even if it was accidental.

So Fulham's that was disallowed last gameweek won't be next season.

Hello all.
Seems like 2 days since the last game week
Bit of a longer write up on the last batch here
Dean's on fire still, despite a lacklustre showing in his last outing. But he has an impressive lead nonetheless

And he has another gig this week as he takes charge of the Wet Spam game on Monday. Only Tierney & Oliver have a chance this week with Attwell having the weekend off.
As for Lee (did I blow the whistle? I'm not too sure) Mason, he has been stuffed away in a box somewhere so he can't embarrass himself again.

How was that a high foot?
Taylor was stooping to head that

Pope is not infallible after all.
 
2021-03-06 7:37:33 AM  
DAMMIT Arsenal, why do you always have to give up a goal in the first ten minutes? Why can't you just lo--

Oh wait, sorry. I got the goal alert and figured they made a dumb mistake in the first five minutes to gift a goal.

Force of habit.

He's really missing his pointy hat

...and yes, I have had the joke in my hip pocket for months, waiting for the right moment.

I'm a sad individual.

Lowton almost totally horsed that up

Cyrene Valantion: As far as I can tell...


At least, that's the rule until the next time there's a controversial incident that gets the media into a lather, when the lawmakers will tweak it again.

Somebody needs to remind them of the old adage that hard cases make bad law.

I need Partey to score so we can make 'he came to partey' jokes.

I have a list ready to go. At the top is "there's no party like a Partey party".

There's a version of Football manager on the Xbox gamepass service now. Debating which team to start out with, do I stay loyal and try to salvage Nottingham Forest, or pick something actually possible first?

I've been waiting years for Xhaka to provide an assist to Lacazette for the BOOM XHAKA LACA joke, but alas...
 
2021-03-06 8:08:51 AM  
Pope decides to make a foray into midfield
 
2021-03-06 8:09:17 AM  
Ooof. Oh Xhaka
 
2021-03-06 8:09:28 AM  
There's the damn mistake

That Arsenal was Boom Xhaka Lacking.
 
2021-03-06 8:10:30 AM  
I wake up to the Arsenal defense making a mistake.
Xhaka passes it right off Chris Wood for the goal.
1-1
 
2021-03-06 8:11:02 AM  
He should have belted that upfield. Unfortunately, Xhaka lack a boom-boom.

/sorry

In fairness Leno should have wellied that back upfield in the first place
 
2021-03-06 8:18:27 AM  
Right. Time for a hot mug of tea and a meat pie.

Thank Jebus, no early Tim Howard

We've got Martin Keown for halftime, and he is deeply non amused by the Burnley goal.
 
2021-03-06 8:37:25 AM  
Xhaka's shirt looks a bit done for.
It's got a big tear in it too

The line for the pies was long. Did I miss anything in the first five minutes?

Yeah, someone came by handing out free pies. Didn't even have to leave my seat.

Stat from the BBC (most likely from Opta)

Since the start of 2016-17, Granit Xhaka has made more errors leading to goals (8) than any other outfield player in the Premier League.

Saka is heading for a second yellow if he doesn't chill a bit.

Sometimes I wonder whether our online communication is descending entirely into memes, and future historians will find it about as comprehensible as "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra".

Peters bounced that with his hand more than LeBron James does on a dunk attempt.

The first one you could argue there was a deflection, but the second one should of been given.

That was a penalty in September, not a penalty in January, should have been a penalty in March, and not a penalty in June.
