    Err ..... yeah. Indians love cricket. The stadia are huge. The games are ridiculously well attended.

     

    The Oval is not going to impress or entice them. Some sort of £££££££££££££££ deal going on perhaps.

     

    Maybe Surrey CCC and their ilk (hello Notts!) haven't got quite enough money to bully the smaller counties with yet?

    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.

    It works as follows.

     

    Surrey CCC usually get everything they want.

     

    Surrey CCC become arrogant and entitled.

     

    Surrey CCC request something ridiculous.

     

    We await to see whether the sport at large has any integrity left now I suppose.

    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?

    Good grief some of you are absolute fannies. 

     

    Leeds will be a horrible proposition for Liverpool next week and Chelsea have some very tough games to come too.

     

    Start worrying when half our side is out tomorrow and/or we hit a slump.

     

     

    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.

    Of course you are right but it sure helps if the chasing pack drop points.

     

    It allows our players go into game more confident and relaxed which can make a huge difference.

     

    I identified tomorrows game as huge for us in Feb and so it's turned out. If we win I think we will comfortably make top four.

     

    If we lose it puts a lot of pressure on players going into games.

     

     

    .

    We were in a better position last year and they certainly weren't relaxed judging by the end of the season displays.

    Carragher seemed to be suggesting that the intent to touch the ball was enough to rule out offside.

     

    I've never seen it interpreted like that and put the suggestion down to Carragher being

     

    a) Scouse

     

    and

     

    b) a git.

     

     

    Yeah, I thought it sounded odd. Never heard intent when missing the ball as a defender as a reason for a decision before.

    We did the same as Leeds, we had more shots and possession then Leeds.

     

    Sometimes it about luck and that producing that little bit of quality at the right time.

     

    Agreed but it means Man CIty have to keep going which means they could do us a favour against Chelsea.

    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.

    Clever manager, probably told them to let them have the ball, but make sure you do something with it when you’ve got it. Man City’s defender ain’t the quickest so you have to counter when the attackers are all around your own box, not give them time to get back by playing it around in defence. 

    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.

    He shouldn't be behind either, his performances in the league and cups this season has him well and truly up there with the best attacking midfielders in the league. From December through to his injury at Villa he was a big game player and match winner. Goals and assists coming out of his ears and pretty much matched what Grealish was doing, although they play in different positions anyway.

    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.
