  1. Commentator’s curse. They were just saying how he was a “Master” up front, then he misses a sitter.
  2. We should all get together sometime when this COVID thing is behind us and watch a game. There are four of us here in Cambridge who watch the games on the projector in my basement. However, we’ll be happy to deive somewhere in my car.
  3. Maybe they are like me.....and have a long memory. League cup final 1999. Aholes on the pitch trying to get Savage sent off. Aholes off the pitch.....Young men verbally bullying young kids, women and old men wearing Leicester scarves travelling on the tube to the game. I have absolutely no respect for a team or supporters like that. It is utterly different to visiting places like Sheffield, Newcastle etc where there is good humoured banter in the pub. Add me to the list of people who despise Spurs. By the way, when I posted the above comment in answer to a similar question a coupl
  4. Eh? He didn’t do anything of the sort. Is this guy deaf, or just stupid? Corden was making the point that the new system is intended to stop teams like Leicester ever winning the top competition again. He only mentioned Liverpool once, when he lists the teams who have signed up. How can Blodgett possibly listen to this clip and suggest that Corden said “ Leicester are on the same level as Liverpool”. Cognitive dissonance at its most extreme. As it happens, we are ahead of Liverpool right now, which does, as Corden points out, “give every fan hope”. THAT is the whole point. Do

  6. I’m not sure which is the most annoying. The cheating itself, the fact that the referees don’t punish it, or the commentators who seem to implicitly suggests that it is OK. Is anyone else fed up watching opposing players standing two yards in front of someone trying to take a free kick? They have absolutely no right to do that but they are NEVER pushed back by the referee....never mind being booked for what used to be called “unsportsmanlike conduct”. Just another example of unpunished cheating.
  7. Nothing to do with “being frail”. Cheating....pure and simple. Spurs do it every game they play. The commentators weigh in saying “Let’s not blame Son for over-reacting. He got a finger in the eye and that is very painful”. Replay shows that the fingers went nowhere near his eye, yet he was rolling around in agony for ages”. Cheating....pure and simple. Commentators should call it for what it is.
  8. I don’t think he did. The four vital players are the other guys.
  9. I hope that is true. Having watched Morgan throw himself in front of many, many shots......blocking most of them, it was a huge disappointment to see Thomas turn his back and make no effort at all to block the shot for the second goal. He is a promising young lad, but he went down in my estimation tonight. Hope he got a good bollocking after the game.
  10. Just like last time a “great player” was going to take us apart. His name was Di Maria. Most of us will remember how that turned out. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiyu9bUz-LuAhUBUzUKHf0nAYIQwqsBMAJ6BAgBEAg&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.premierleague.com%2Fvideo%2Fsingle%2F847381&usg=AOvVaw3CUn6X98jwStbADDbCRoQN
  11. I think that it might be a bit difficult to get this going as a Leicester song, but, for anyone who was there on the day we played Everton (when we were awarded the Premier League trophy in 2016), crying tiers of joy, as I and many others did, it might bring back some fond memories. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uL52AuF4QzY
  12. Went to his testimonial match. It was a fantastic night and we all sang our hearts out. Loved that guy.
  13. My body is a bit like Aurier’s. When I stand up straight, my left shoulder is to the right hand side of my right foot. Can’t comment further because I’ve got to go now and climb the tower in Notre-Dame.
  14. For the third time in a row, the Tottenham defender has (IMHO) obstructed Abraham. The first two were by making no attempt to head the ball, but by just getting under Abraham as he jumps and pushing underneath him so he cannot effectively head te ball. This time it was Dier with his hand in the middle Abraham’s chest to stop Abraham reaching the ball. The commentator says “The defender did enough to stop him getting aN attempt in target”, as if it is all legal. Giroud may well have been stronger and resisted the foul, but is it not a foul?
  15. It’s the new regulation. “If you you shout out in pain when anyone touches you, however lightly, the opposition player is awarded a yellow card”. There is an additional codicil for Tottenham players “The opposition player doesn’t actually have to touch you. If it looks like he might have come close to fouling you, even if there was no contact, you are entitled to claim a yellow card if you shout very loud, hold your face and roll around a bit”.
