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'.

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.

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).

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

Oh, and during the week, the MIGHTY Oxford United FC changed from Thai ownership to Indonesian ownership. Oh and they've released a third kit that doesn't have a shirt sponsor, so it looks like a pretty classy polo shirt:

That's why you got to boo your returning stars, like how Seattle booed Russell Wilson

It's not so much that. That was a cracking goal. (Grrrrrrr)
It's that Thiago Silva was still on the pitch to set up the first.


I don't know how that wasn't a red card.

desertgeek: Deathbymeteor: Pool needs to fix this ongoing issue of "Poor opening 30 minutes".  It's becoming damn near unacceptable.

It's beyond unacceptable. It's like they're not prepared to play and that's on everyone: players, coaches, and Klopp.


Klopp is quickly becoming too predictable with his initial game plans, and is having to use his plan B mid-match. He really shouldn't be getting so predictable with his Plan A, and should *start* with whatever he had in mind for a Plan B.

Pretty much was my conclusion.  Everyone is going to be riding Haaland as their captain, stacking the lineup with Gunners, Citizens, a mix of defenders and keepers.

2022-10-02 12:47:31 PM  
Still trying to find the fastest yellow in a professional career, and cannot get much info.  I'm still amazed the record for the fastest red and yellow are both 3 seconds into a match (albeit different matches).  Vinnie Jones broke the record when he played for Sheffield United and earned a yellow 5 seconds in.  He went on to break this record while playing for Chelsea to 3 seconds.

Looking at fastest reds, Deandre Yedlin doesn't even come close to the top 10.  Keith Gillespie still holds the record for a sub at just 12 seconds.  For starters, it looks like Kevin Pressman at 13 seconds, but that was an FA Cup match between Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves in 2000.
