Hello all.
Not been able to join in the past couple of GWs as I spent weekend before last digging up a cement floor & last weekend clearing out the last of the rubble before the sparks arrived to make another pile of it at the new house.
But I did manage to update the Dumpster fire league table and write a summary

& the ref's table too where Taylors seems to have been a busy boy.

Of course he gets the North (that) London derby today while Tierney will need to wait until later as he takes charge of the Wet Spam v Wolves game.
Third placed Pawson only gets a 4th official gig this weekend so he'll need to wait for another chance to leapfrog the leaders.
Full listing is here

Pure luck that we have two London derbies on the weekend of a national rail strike, as that doesn't affect the buses and tube in London.

The other games, especially Newcastle's trip to Fulham, will be heavily impacted by it. Expect smaller crowds.

TV channel here has had a spotlight on Granit Xhaka who has had a pretty impressive season so far.
Not sure I've seen him play this well before & only the two yellow cards so far.
Of course, this is the kiss of death & he'll probably have a 'mare & get sent off today

The nations league was comedy gold for the home nations going into the World Cup. The team that have qualified (England and wales) both ended uk relegated, the team that didn't (Scotland) won promotion. So I'm theory, they could be higher seeded for the next euro draw. Mwahahaha.

Southgate continues to stick with Maguire against all reason. He did a press conference this week which was basically 'I'm picking him for the World Cup so you'd better get behind him so he doesn't suck'.

Are BT really going with a House of Dragons pastiche for their pre game build up?

Let's hope the game isn't quite as dull as the tv show

Well let's see how Taylor can fark this match up

Martinelli with a great chance early on

it always cracks me up when sky or bt wheel put some dude reading some overly earnest poetry about how important the game is while music from tv show of the day plays in the background.

It's always cringe. And they keep doing it.
 
2022-10-01 7:33:54 AM  
Martinelli with a waste of a corner.
 
2022-10-01 7:34:48 AM  
Spurs have been slow starters in so many of their games this year, they could go behind fast here.

I really don't understand Southgate. He's by no means a bad manager, but Maguire even struggles to get into the Manc team so how on earth he gets into the national team is a massive mystery.

When he took over the main thing he built that England had been lacking was a sense of team unity, he got the players behaving as a group working together rather than the allegedly very cliquey setup they had before.

I suspect he's now terrified that if he takes certain players out he'll lose all that. (Though from the outside it seems a lot of the team unity is down to Harry Kane not putting up with anyones crap).

So take him but never let him off the bench

Is Xhaka the unofficial captain or something?
He seems to be doing all the talking & huddle leading.
Ødegaard has the armband though

If Jesus had scored there it would have been sensational.
That ball was almost glued to his foot
 
2022-10-01 8:27:05 AM  
Morning all. Once again I was up hours ago but completely forgot to put the game on. It sounds like I missed a pretty good first half.
 
2022-10-01 8:34:51 AM  
"'Pool vs Scum" ?

No they are playing BHA
 
2022-10-01 8:35:15 AM  
White & Partey try the same thing as earlier.
No dice this time

Exactly.
South Coast Scum.  Seaweed etc. etc.

I'm recording the game, was about to go up and watch and checked the BBC New front page. Damn it BBC keep the score off the headline if you are posting to News not Sport
 
2022-10-01 8:47:38 AM  
You have to at least be on target when you get a free hit like that.
 
2022-10-01 8:49:32 AM  
Red for Emerson Royal?
 
2022-10-01 8:50:14 AM  
Huh, we missed that cause they were showing a replay of something else
 
2022-10-01 8:50:41 AM  
Late, high, studs up, nowhere near the ball. Nailed on red card. I don't know what the NBC guy is seeing.
 
2022-10-01 8:50:48 AM  
Oof, yeah, that's very late and dangerous.
 
2022-10-01 8:50:50 AM  
*stumbles in*  So many sports on today....so many sports.

And that's a red and nasty

Is Peter Drury NOT calling this match for some reason?

I'm honestly trying to wake up and don't have the match on.

It'll be plunged deeper and twisted in for this last quarter of the game.

When down a man and 2 goals, you may as well insure some people don't get hurt.
