Hello all.
Going with the loan merchants vs FFP FC for the early game. If the stream holds out at least.
The fantasy table standings...

Usual game week bumf is here
Ref's table is all over the shop after 5 matches but one to watch is Darren England who went into beast mode last week

The rest will be glad he's only got playstation duties this week with only Coote & Dean on the whistle this week from the top 4.
This week also marks the first time an overseas ref has taken charge of a PL match as Jarred Gillett takes on Watford vs Newcastle.

Good morning everybody. Apparently NBC has put the Man Utd game on Peacock, so I'm stuck with one of those "giant meteor" games. I have to root against Manchester City (hey, I don't make the rules) but I can't deal with rooting for Chelsea either.

For authenticity's sake, I'm getting in the mood with a bag of chips (crisps, for the right-ponded) and a mug of tea.

Good morning. I got up, showered and dressed so I could go to Panera and get coffee before this one. And I managed to make my picks this week after completely forgetting before going away last weekend. I'm with HugeMistake here. Go meteor!

I have a narrow chelsea win here, there's just been something about them this season so far.

If I hadn't had Saint Maxi riding the bench I'd be in second in the fantasy league as well, bah.

If you're able, there are plenty of options to watch the other game at footybite dot cc.
There's be a slight lag & a few ads to navigate, but, from what I gather, it shouldn't be any worse than peacock
 
2021-09-25 7:37:04 AM  
Oh, FFS. Fred is starting again. Does he have incriminating photos of OGS?

Also, what is going on with Sancho? Is he going to be added to the long list of creative difference-makers who fizzle at Utd?

I'm sure, I just have a wildly over-developed guilt complex that won't allow me to watch unlicensed content - at least, as long as there is a licensed, albeit wildly over-priced, alternative :-(
 
2021-09-25 7:38:41 AM  
Part of me thinks United signed Sancho just to deny him signing for anyone else.

Otherwise I've no idea why they'd spend so much and not use him.
 
2021-09-25 7:38:51 AM  
Rudiger lucky with his timing there

for what it's worth, in the uk only the Chelsea game is available, no one is carrying the United game as far as I can tell.

'Preciate the vote of confidence.  I managed to drag myself to the screen s well.

New IPTV provider has a full lockup of the NBCSN stream, it plays a few seconds and loops.  So it's off to SKY for this, then probably Supersport for the later matches (Optus will probably spoil the Grand Final today)

Meanwhile down in the championship us long suffering Forest fans had the pleasure of actually having the team win a game, and then Derby got a 12 point deduction so we're no longer on the bottom.

This does amuse us, but I don't think we'd want to see the full winding out of Derby that's being touted if some of the things that are allegedly turning up in the accounts are true. You want to see your rivals suffer but you don't want them to no longer exist.

Classic Ed Woodward. Buy  much a talked-about player even though the manager has no idea where he fits in the plans. Use him sporadically and ineffectually. Hope to make it up in shirt sales.

Part of me wants Chelsea to lose just cause of the awful pattern on their kit home kit.

Part of me wants Citeh to lose because they're Citeh.

0-0 draw will suit me though

Another crap Nike design.

Almost got rid of Luke Shaw from my fantasy team this week.

Looks like I probably should've, a fantastic 'played but still scores zero points' from him today.

booked for a tackle that injured him enough for them to sub him off.

This game is tedious. Chelsea can't get out and City can't finish.

Glad I left him on the bench now.
Although, having said that, the rest of my defence will probably get ill before their games & I'll get lumbered with him to make up the numbers

I still feel Chelsea will nick something today

NBC gave us a few bonus minutes of the Man Utd game, and the commentators sound like the producers grabbed two random guys from the terraces because the regular team didn't show up.

I didn't even know he left U2

Haha. I got that on my stream too.

Let's hope for better from both these games in the second half.
 
2021-09-25 8:37:39 AM  
I'm going to go get a coffee and some chocolate, let's see if I have the same super power as the rest of you...

Well read by Ederson.
Nice pass by Kovacic.

Mendy gets a fingernail to Grealish's shot to push it wide.

nope, but I rewound the stream to have a look. (The bt sport app has a nice timeline thing where you can see stuff like goals and cards and it'll skip the stream to far enough ahead of the event for you to see all the build up)
 
2021-09-25 8:48:15 AM  
Put the flag up!
 
2021-09-25 8:49:09 AM  
Holy carp linesman.
Everyone & their dog knew that was offside a full minute before you flagged it
 
2021-09-25 8:50:19 AM  
Thiago Silva blocks the shot off the line.
 
2021-09-25 8:50:26 AM  
Literally seconds before Citeh scored, this appeared on Twitter:

Men in Blazers  @MenInBlazers
8m
50 minutes in, and Liverpool biggest winners of this game so far

/shut up, Rog and/or the producer
 
2021-09-25 8:50:59 AM  
OOoooohhh, so close
 
2021-09-25 8:51:57 AM  
And there's another one where he was yards and yards offside that they could've flagged.
 
2021-09-25 8:51:57 AM  
Keep your flag down!
 
2021-09-25 8:52:09 AM  
Come on AR, put the flag up.
 
2021-09-25 8:58:21 AM  
NBC stream finally crapped out so onto BT spor.....oh gawd. Glen Hoddle

De Bruyne seems to be not quite as sharp as usual today.
 
2021-09-25 8:59:25 AM  
What a block by Diaz!

Untidy really wants to fall down the table, don't they? 24 shots, 4 on target, and not a goal to show for it.
