    Bergwijn not quite at the level of Goran Pandev.

    My spurs mate kept complaining about Liverpool being described as "joint top" when they were in second. I don't have the heart to rub it in, but that's what you get.

    #20 by a 20 point margin?

    And Bobby getting the winner. And Jose absolutely seething after a shit on a stick performance. It's all come round now.

    He makes it sound like he's organized a band of street urchins to a plucky draw with 1970 Brazil.

    Agreed. An awful draw. Pleased for a clean sheet at least, especially as Brighton put us under some pressure in the 2nd half.

    That was also the first 0-0 at Craven Cottage in the league for over 9 years.

    If there's anything more ridiculous than a parade of 40 and 50 year olds at the BBC trying to put in place programming to attract what they imagine to be the youth market, it's the same people trying to do that while working from home.

    "20 year olds react to MoTD presenters as players" is on their youtube channel. That's where they're at.

    On a different note, how much better is it with even a few thousand supporters back in the stadiums? I've really struggled to even be bothered about the football much this season but the missing ingredient is back. Mourinho spitting his dummy out was also a nice antidote.

    Lol that we will go second if we win our two games in hand. Unless Villa win their THREE games in hand. How has that happened?

    I think we'll take a draw as well. All the zip has gone from our play. At least Lamptey is back.

    What do you think about Mitrovic not playing?

    Play tonight, missed one against City (?) in the first week and were the victims of Newcastle's covid outbreak.

    You really must stop reading into the table with 'if we put a 3 game-run together we'll win the CL lulz'. The 2 superior sides have started slowly and everyone else is seprated by whatever mood Stockley Park are in on said given day. That's why the table is congested. If it gives you lols you'll shit yourself of laughter when you get relegated to the Champ in 5 years time.

    2006 World Cup second round I believe.

    There will have been "worse" games on an objective level but given that stage of a World Cup, etc. and the fact neither team even tried to fucking win it's still comfortably the worst I've ever seen.

    'Even Fifa’s own report struggled to find a positive angle, describing it as a “scrappy affair devoid of highlights”'
    EDIT: And on top of that Google has told me that on co-commentary Mick McCarthy said "This is bloody awful."

    He wasn't wrong.

    We're missing Konsa, Cash, Barkley, Luiz and Trez, plus we're shit at home. Might watch Corrie instead.

    Spain - Holland playing out that awful World Cup final and then having Iniesta rob us of penalties after 119 minutes of tedium made me anti Tiki-Taka.

    You know what, I wouldn't have said this a few years ago, but if Amazon fancy getting the cheque book out and buying up all the football, I wouldn't be averse to it. Nice, clean presentation, no bullshit, good simple pundits, good commentators and Jim Rosenthal. Well played.

    It's somehow refreshing to hear Jim Beglin and co calling it like they see it again, after years of DRAMA from Sky. Plus Ally McCoist, who actually sounds like he's having a good time rather than it being deadly srs bizness.

    Have Sheffield United won a game yet? Are they actually in danger of getting to Christmas without winning one? I suppose fewer games will have been played this season but that seems mental.

    Their xPTS has them at 18th same as Burnley so they've definitely been a bit unlucky but as Brighton are finding out, you need finishers. I see Berge is injured too today. RIP

    It's all in the 'Keeper isn't it? This idiot they've bought off Bournemouth (probably a clue in there) is fucking useless (and looked as much for most of last season).

    Pogba obviously likes playing against teams in red and white stripes. I'm sure I remember him bossing a game against Stoke a few years ago. Might have been the last time it happened.
