    Watching the Wallabies v All Blacks rugby right now being played in New Zealand and it is being played in front of a loud and boisterous crowd that looks pretty damn full just like the good old days. New Zealand has moved ahead a long way compared to most. Here in Oz our League semis were played before 50% fill stadiums which isn’t bad. Have they any plans regarding the football in the UK or do they still consider it too dangerous?

    Well window over. RLC to Fulham on loan good to get him more football and hopefully the challenge of trying to help them stay up will inspire him to put in find the sort of quality form he has always apparently had in his locker.

    Just a thought on a separate issue, the sale of Eden Hazard a few years back. Not sure Real have got value for money. What a brilliant sale by us. The guy rarely plays any more due to injury. Only 16 appearances for them so far and ONE goal.

    Total domination today. We did as we liked. Palace offered nothing and our defence was the most solid I have seen for quite some time. Surely Saha gets docked his pay for not turning up. He was total crap. Can’t believe that Palace beat up United only a few weeks back.

    Joe Biden to be signed up urgently. Anybody else have the misfortune to watch that Presidential debate? Trump is just impossible. Get him out!

    A team put together over a matter of weeks (at least half the side) in what are not normal circumstances then expected to go in and play from the get go with no preseason (bar one game) against opposition which is of professional standard. Of course there are going to be unfortunate errors made but the fact that they were 3-0 down and able to turn it around as they did told me that we need to accept that, in time, this is going to be one hell of a good football side. Obviously a few of the players are going to struggle to make the grade and will probably continue to be ‘risky’ players and I put Alonso, Emerson, Azpi (on occasions). Christensen into that category. I am willing to forgive Thiago Silva on this one error as they all make mistakes and he, over time, once settled in, will more than pay his way. Having said all that, what you say 442 is a fact and unfortunate but not unexpected (well, by me anyway) πŸ™‚

    As if they would have lost and Chelsea got some valuable match practice to gel some new players. Havertz got a hatrick, Chilwell got a run out and impressed . Bring it on Spurs.

    Timely hatrick by Havertz albeit against average opposition. That’ll give him plenty of confidence. Clean sheet by Willy with numerous saves to make. Not sure Kepa would have achieved same. Anyway Mendy is signed now.

    Big win on the weekend lads. Congrats. 100% had to be a red. Not sure why the ref gave the yellow in the first place. Liverpool dominated the match and the score 2-0 was a fair gauge of what happened out there. The first goal was a peach of a goal. The second…..well!! πŸ™‚ Having said that I was quite happy with Chelsea’s second half performance which I watched after the event (switched off when Kepa stuffed up ay 2.45am here) once I knew the score hadn’t blown out beyond 2-0. I think there will be plenty of good times ahead, probably for both clubs. Having watched United flounder it looks like this season will be more of the same with Liverpool and City putting a big points gap on the rest.

    If every club was serious about progressing the winners should be Spurs, Watford, WBA, WHU, Manchester Utd, Fulham, Burnley, BHA, Stoke, Chelsea, Everton, Leicester, Newcastle, Liverpool, Villa and Manchester City.

    As there may be fringe players getting a run though there are sure to be upsets.

    Teams that may upset if the favourites tinker too much are Brentford away to WBA, Sheffield Wed away to Fulham, Preston at home to BHA and Arsenal away to Leicester (joking with that one guys, Arsenal may well win it on their merits as they also have quality fringe players and who knows what side Leicester may put out), Bristol City at home to Villa and Bournemouth away to Manchester City :)))

    First Mak, then Paxton. There is a common denominator and has been here all of about 6 weeks. I am not taking sides just stating a fact. There are certain protocols we all follow and most know where that line is and not to step over it, especially when interacting with opposition supporters. It is called respect and the majority exercise it while some need to take it on board. Thankfully Mak is back and hopefully it won’t be a long spell for Paxton. This is a great site and in the main everybody has little or no reason to step on toes. Long may it continue.

    Of course it was a red. I was relieved when he showed yellow and VAR did its job and changed it. After Kepa’s stuff up I switched off seeing it was heading on for 3am here in the land of Oz. After that, enough was enough.

    That would be:

    Larry
    Curly
    Mo
    Werner

    I still come up with Werner whichever way I look at it 442. Maybe I am being a little harsh on Tammy though but not the other two.

    All or nothing. Not a great start Spurs 0 Everton 1. Everton the sort of side that would probably benefit from playing away matches with zero crowd pressure. You wonder what effect that has in influencing performance and subsequent results moving forwards in respect of both sides in a match. I would think that whilst it is the same for all sides through a home and away season, the benefit lies more with the underdog sides. Maybe I’m talking a load of gibberish but the Everton win suggests otherwise. Would Everton beat Spurs on their home ground with a full house of mainly Spurs support? I say most probably not.

    This side should be able to account for B.H.A.

    Caballero; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, Chilwell; Havertz, Kante, Kovacic; Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic.

    Rather watch a couple of editions of Coronation Street than some of the crap being dished up. Bring on the weekend matches.

    Mourinho losing quality in Eriksen to Inter Milan and now they have decided he doesn’t fit the plans of Conte playing 3-5-2 and “want to cut their losses” and move him on. WTF maybe I am missing something but they got him on a free and now want to flog him off for 35 mil.

    Pulisic and Werner may well be a lethal combination. Let’s hope that Chelsea and most likely also United close the gap a bit on the top two which will make for an exciting run in. Noted that two City players have been diagnosed with Covid-19. How does that impact on things. Do they and the rest of the squad have to self ilolate for 14 days? Will that cause a delay in City’s season starting and therefore also that of their proposwd opponents?
