I didn't even know about it but if Bellamy's the victim it must be worth a look.

Did you mean Nicky Butt? I just saw that one.

Are Otamendi and Aguero impersonating skunks or panda bears? Could be an interesting 2nd half.
I suppose with several key players missing Yernited fans should be happy with the win but at times we looked completely clueless in front of goal. Take the 3 points and prepare for Thursday night

I haven't watched any matches yet as I was watching my son "play" his first ever match. He literally had to have a team mate put him in position as he couldn't understand where his coach wanted him to be let alone what he wanted him to do. I've been told I'm not allowed to criticise him so I've kept my mouth shut.By the sounds of it though he's on track to be a 50 million quid defender.

Yeah but our 14 quid is earned and not given to us by a rich Sheikh but then our owners take that 14 quid and pay themselves and their debts off.

Pleased with the weekends's football, didn't see the Spurs game but apparently the scoreline flattered the performance, but anyway that's put Palace back in their box! Some talk of disrespecting Moura for putting him on for 5 mins, Yes he pretty much got us to the CL final but Kane is much proven so don't really see the issue?

Just got back from DC, so nice to finally see a game where the Cherries pretty much had hold of the game for the whole way through (with perhaps the exception of the first 20 mins of the second half).. Everton never offered very much and my God their support was dire, the fans were pretty much silent save for the one goal and most had left by 80 minutes to get the train back to Scouseland.

No flattery. Palace were really poor and the game was done in the opening 30 minutes- if anything Spurs missed an opportunity to post 6 or 7goals. It was nice to see Son's brace and Lamela was superb and should be picked ahead of Alli. Serge Aurrier put in his best ever Spurs performance too. We need this result to draw a line under a poor run of Premiership results since March and to start to put a solid run together.

Just watched the Arsenal game and really looking forward to their FanTV when they start posting videos. Watford tore them a new one in the second half and will be gutted they dropped two points.

A good result for United as Leicester are a decent outfit. I'd ringed this one as a draw or defeat for the reds. Ole buying some time.

The 14 quid then goes on the remaining contract they have to pay out when their manager moves on every 18 months.

I played my wildcard last week and had a fantasy footy resurgence. Two Norwich players but had one on the bench. Annoyingly though for myself and no doubt City fans KDB did not start.

VAR
After the first two or three weekends it seemed that officials were determined to back each other 100% regardless of what everyone else saw when it came to penalty claims.

Then sometime during the international break, referees chief Mike Riley admitted there had been four errors. Strangely, the article I read to double check the number actually claimed there were 10 but there's no indication of where this higher number comes from. Nevertheless, four major errors - one a goal that should have been disallowed, another where a team should have been reduced to 10 men and two "clear and obvious" penalties not given - seems quite high in just four sets of fixtures, given the nature of the non decisions and replays available to the officials.

So, after the official admission that it is, after all, quite alright to challenge/revise the original decision, I was expecting a change this weekend. But seeing that obvious penalty Liverpool should have been given, apparently not.
