  1. Mahrez v Gray. Gray v Mahrez

    How many superstar attackers and big egos do Man City have? More and better than us, and they seem to complement each other just fine. Maybe Puel should show some DeBruyne videos.
  2. West Ham post match 1-1

    The problem is, there are five clubs within two points playing tomorrow or Sunday, none against the top six. Worst case, we could end the week in 15th. Unless some there is a new dawn v Spurs, we will pass the one-third mark on 14 points. We were facing an opponent in poor form, which had key players unavailable, and the most tenuous home field advantage in the league. This was a poor result masquerading as an "away draw".

    Most of us spent the entire second half vomiting.

    Undefeated in our last 25 PL games when we scored first, says Miz Lowe on NBC ... can that be true?

    Lovely assist JV! First goal and we should be on our way.

    Must see TV ... Mark Clattenberg as "special guest" coming up next on the pregame on NBC Sports (EDIT) FFS ... they've hired him, we apparently will be subjected to this on a regular basis.

    The numbers support this argument. This table shows the top ten volume shooters, plus other notable attacking players (including Eriksen and the pissant who, presumably, would benefit most from a more passing-inclined Kane). For the second time in three years, Kane is lapping the field in shots taken, while posting a mediocre finishing percentage. Where he’s putrid is shots on target: only 14 of 64. In other words, he has wasted more shots than the next most prolific shot-taker in the PL has even attempted. Too many low-percentage shots which do not threaten the goal. It’s only an 11 game sample. But it’s looking like his efficient 2016-17 season was an outlier, boosted by ten goals in three beach-season outings against Stoke, Hull and us. Two interesting findings: - The whole Spurs front line suck at finishing. The team conversion rate is under 10% - Vardy is actually converting at a higher rate than in 2015-16. So many fewer attempts though ...
  8. Next up.. West Ham (a)..Friday 8pm ko

    From this remove, I always liked WHU. The classic old ground in the east end, the colors, and then Bilic, a class manager … All they’ve got now is the claret and sky blue, and freaking Burnley (!) are doing those colors infinitely more credit. And will be the only side wearing them in the Prem next year.

  11. Malcolm Young Dead at 64

    Malcolm Young, the Australian guitarist and AC/DC co-founder, has died aged 64. Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the Sydney group to superstardom, Young had been suffering from dementia for the past three years. He was replaced by nephew Stevie for the band’s last tour promoting the 2014 album Rock Or Bust. He wanted the band to continue the tour. “Mal always wanted the music to go on,” singer Brian Johnson told Rolling Stone in 2014. “And I’m not going to say no.” According to Angus Young, Malcolm started battling symptoms of dementia before they made their 2008 album Black Ice, but he was “still capable of knowing what he wanted to do”. “I had said to him, ‘Do you want to go through with what we’re doing?’ And he said, ‘Sh*t, yeah.’” Malcolm started getting treatment during his last tour with the band from 2008 to 2010 and during which he had to relearn the very riffs he’d come up with. It was strange for him, Angus told Rolling Stone, “but he was always a confident guy, and we made it work”. He died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside, a statement said.
