aha a joke, my apologies I misunderstood

It's about time.....

Dalian Atkinson: Police officer charged with murder of ex-Aston Villa footballer

A second West Mercia Police constable charged with assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) appeared alongside him at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Thursday afternoon.

They were referred to as Constables A and B, after lawyers requested they remain anonymous, with Constable B pleading not guilty to her assault charge and granted bail to appear at Birmingham Crown Court later.

Constable A was remanded in custody to appear at the same hearing.

But we are not in Manchester so the water they drink is not from Manchester. Our penalty routine is simple score one, miss one and of course deciding who is the designated PK taker even though Rashford is supposed to be it but he has missed 2 already and we did have 2 saved in 1 match.

You lucky bastards! At least your teams actually get awarded penalties that are then missed.

yeah true but I thought SD was on something strong than water but it turns out there was one essential element missing from the joke...

I read somewhere 25% of penalties are missed but that number clearly is inflated by Pogba, Mahrez and Liverpool in the league cup final........

PS you got more given than we did last year in the PL

Just confirming what we already know VAR is a joke.

https://www.theguardian.com/football...eague-brighton

As for the game today, I just hope we don't get any more injuries and we aren't talking about the ref and VAR again.

So we managed to get a win. Really should have been five nil up by halftime, but Southampton improved some in the second half.

I think we deserved to win. Hopefully we can do it again when we play Premier league level teams.

You haven't done too badly so far. Southampton v Everton was way off, but who cares about them anyway

These football pundits are driving me nuts, they've been on about how it's a 2 horse race for months now despite City not being too far ahead of the teams below them, now Leceister have beat Arsenal and it's suddenly a 3 horse race with them completely ignoring Chelsea being the team in second. Anything but a win for Liverpool tomorrow should make it a 4 horse race. If we win then I'd argue City are probably the only team that will go on a 20+ game winning run so can probably count the other 2 out.

I can't believe you're even surprised or pleased you 'managed to win' against us? It's a guaranteed 3 points.

HELLO CHAMPIONSHIP

You obviously haven't seen us play before. Any win is a surprise.
