We can still score goals and still can't defend for shit. Business as usual then.

Chelsea! Love it!

Crystal Palace! Love it!

On another note it looks like the clubs are on for another 50 million a season each windfall. I wonder what the tipping point will be for TV revenue?

I did stick a fiver on Chelsea getting a draw when they were 3 down, so was having some mixed emotions there.

And a last-gasp Dipper points-dropping moment too. Fair play to Rooney, and nice to see Swansea holding out for a brave away point at the Theatre of Scummers.

Chelsea were pretty impressive with 9 men. The goal mouth scramble in the dying moments must have had you leaping around the front room.

Annoyingly, being a 3pm kick off it wasn't on here. I watched some athletics and a bit of the golf with the sound off. Peter Allis is to golf what Michael Owen is to football. A ****.

I think that's illegal in Dubai, but he has gone to the Far East this week. Now we know why.

:rofl: well I certainly don't and that's reflected in my position at the bottom. Mind you, FF does give me a new perspective on the sport, and I've just bemused my husband by an outburst of swearing at the radio when I heard Kane has just picked up a yellow card.

Very impressed with Matic so far. He will have tougher tests ahead, but he looked dominant in the first half.
