    You wouldn't have thought somebody who spent almost all of his career at Bayern would be this naive about what's driving the Champions League reforms.

    For once, we've benefited from an absolute shocker from VAR. There's no way that Wolves goal should have been disallowed.

    Need to actually take advantage of this situation and get a fucking win now.

    Feels like that's the final nail in the coffin. Still have Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal to play away and we've played 2 more than everyone else. Absolutely gutting losing it so late on to that fraud.

    Nice win that.

    Pundits talking about Stones' lack of pace on that second goal - surely being aware of the runner before the pass is more important. He just wanders into a useless position, blind to the side where Dallas is coming from.

    I think England might need three centre backs...

    Anyway well done Leeds. A lovely addition to the Prem.

    If Barkley had just shot instead of trying to take 5 minutes to decide what to do Liverpool don't win.

    Mane is like me, physical dons absolutely ruined by COVID. Bench him for Wednesday, same XI as today but Thiago in place of Milner.

    I've no idea where 'Trent' should actually play but it's becoming increasingly clear that it probably shouldn't be in defence.

    That was an awful game though, typifying everything bad about both covid and VAR era football.

    Intent doesn't matter with dangerous play. It looks about right to me.

    Havertz was unreal for us vs Palace. If he plays like that he's going to be world class.

    33 minutes into el Classico and it's Real 2-0 Barca. Dembele has had about 10 fresh air shots and fallen over. In typical Barca fashion, they have 10 outfield players inside the Madrid final third and every time Madrid clear the ball, it's Vinicius junior burning down the left. Creating chance after chance. It should be 5-0.

    Remember when everyone used to pretend to care about El Classico in this country? Didn't even know it was on.

    That front 3 should be the go to. Either that or Hudson Odoi further up.

    La Liga's standards have obviously gone off a cliff, but that is some title race they have cooking. Might have to pretend to be interested for a few weeks.

    Lille are three points clear in France and inter are eight ahead in Italia. All leagues have been one-sided over the past ten years. Covid balance.

    Sporting are about to win their first League in twenty years as well in Portugal.

    The writing has been on the wall in Scotland for a while. Rangers were the better side for a lot of last season as well.

    I didn't see them being this comfortable, though.

    Not big on that formation Bruce has went for. Five at the back and Joelinton in a front two. I think he does better out wide.

    Presumably talking in terms of EXCITEMENT.

    United are gone but Leicester probably still have it in them to blow up again like they did last season.

    Liverpool have the easier run in, only Man Utd away looks somewhat tough. Leicester still have to play West Ham, Chelsea and Man Utd. Think Chelsea have the same but Man City instead of Utd.

    Liverpool and West Ham to finish 3rd and 4th

    Liverpool need more than just Chelsea to go up against for the top 4. If Leicester lose they're only 4 points ahead of us and they still have United, Chelsea and Spurs to play. Plus Rodgers tends not to do well under pressure.

    Everyone has a very similar goal difference too, so it could quite literally come down to the odd goal.

    We're cruising it which is a shame as would have been cool to finish outside top 4 and still qualify for CL again.

    Newcastle relegation battle coming down to their last 2 games against Sheff Utd and Fulham They're down.

    They're more than safe now. Fulham's mistake has been an utter refusal to score goals.

    It's a dead rubber now. The big players have come back, Bruce has got us organised for some key games as well. Even if we held station until the Fulham game, it would've required us to shit the bed against a long buried Sheff Utd with a caretaker in change.

    You talk as if shitting the bed against Sheff Utd isn't the most likely scenario.

    Think we're safe now, anyway. Means nothing without a change of ownership though.

    I can't see us losing both of the last two. Not if there's something to play for.
