  1. It needs to be closely monitored if it ever happens (I don't think it will). You can't have grounds staging games from other competitions and the counties profiting from it.
  2. I may be completely out of touch but isn't a massive part of the IPL actually being in India and going to the packed grounds there?
  3. If we can't have both, next Sunday. We have a chance to respond to defeat tomorrow.
  4. Highlight of the game was the Palace PA bloke still shouting the scorer's first name and expecting the crowd to shout the surname.
  5. On a side note, is there ever a match where Zaha doesn't get involved in some petty row over nothing?
  6. Chelsea are thumping Palace. You know what? Why don't we do the same in two weeks time? It's unrealistic to expect teams around us to keep dropping points. We're doing fine, generally. 3 defeats in 17. We should embrace the challenge.
  7. And Neville didn't actually criticise his attacking ability. Still, it gets Carra his clip on Twitter and no doubt G Nev's response. Berk.
  8. The Carragher v Neville thing needs to be binned asap.
  9. We were in a better position last year and they certainly weren't relaxed judging by the end of the season displays.
  10. Even if the teams around us don't win, we need to win our games. We aren't going to lose our way into the top four. They aren't all going to slip up. Next five games are huge.
  11. 10th April and a game delayed due to snow. Good old England
  12. Yeah, I thought it sounded odd. Never heard intent when missing the ball as a defender as a reason for a decision before.
  13. Did he ever take one for us? I suppose it would've been when Knockaert was the main man.
  14. Unless I've got this wrong, Carragher seemed to get Cash's involvement completely incorrect. I thought you had to touch it and then it was decided if it was deliberate such as a back pass or an attempt to block a cross. If he doesn't touch the ball it is irrelevant?
  15. Leeds also have the ability to play with freedom now their objective (staying up) is assured. If they drop two or three places then it's not a huge deal. If we do our season has a different look again.
  16. The title race is done, Man United aren't consistent enough to catch Man City.
  17. That goal had looked quite likely in the five minutes before, Leeds managed to break quickly a couple of times. I see Fernandinho had his customary off-the-ball lunge at the end.
  18. Not sure, he mentioned something about him only getting because of injuries this time. Southgate has this reputation as a good public speaker but he does talk down plenty of players too.
  19. I'm not sure Southgate wants the lot of them- Maddison, Grealish, Lingard. Grealish only seemed to get in because Southgate was bored of all the clamour, not through any great positivity about him.
  20. Agreed, they've still got to play Everton and Chelsea and if the title is wrapped up and they are still in Europe they may drop off.
  21. Hopefully Leeds can do the same next week
  22. It would take an age to get a Minor County team up to county standard, I know it's not the complete guide but when they played in the Natwest Trophy 20 years ago there were barely any victories over first-class teams. As poor as we are generally in four day cricket, a Minor County team wouldn't do any better for a number of years.
  23. Never liked Danny Mills so not too annoyed he never played for us.
