Premier League 2020/21 Thread

Recommended Posts

People moaning about the penalty. If it isn't for the keeper getting him which he did, fabinho pulls him back anyway. 

 

I also don't think anyone would have been moaning if it was say, fulham and not barnes at burnley.

Let's be honest. If that exact same penalty incident happened up the other end with Mane in place Barnes this thread would be in meltdown right now.

There was two fouls 🤷🤷🤷 dragged back by the centre half and the keeper intended to impede him he had to go over to avoid injury 

 

all good my friend

Yeah I'm not complaining at all. I just didn't think it was a penalty.

The only reason Allison doesnt touch the ball is cus Barnes literally has to loop the ball out of play. Then he doesnt get touched so basically kicks Allison as he goes down lol

 

I'm never gonna accept contact = penalty. It's a contact sport and Allison has not impeded Barnes or prevented him from scoring

 

If you're a sky sports bruv type of person, or obviously a standard biased footie fan, then you probably think it's a pen.

 

Not for me though.

Solid Post. Well Said !!

That's the title race blown wide open! For me Liverpool were the best team we played in that first 19 games, so to be 4 points ahead of them at this stage is incredible. Man United I maintain are an at best average team with one truly world class player. Man City have to be the favourites in their current form and past pedigree. But hmm, didn't they lose 5-2 at home to someone earlier in the season? Maybe that team has a shot at the league too!?

That’s happened before as I’m sure we all know, they deserve to have it go against them.

I've said all along that the real test of the season will be as the fixtures pile up and squads get stretched. We are part way through this period, but most teams will be playing twice a week until March now, with Covid looming on the horizon at any possible time. For us we've got lucky in some way that our biggest spell of injuries so far was at the beginning and now have the unusual situation of almost having a full squad to choose from! This can change very quickly indeed but it's certainly a good place to be in at the moment.

 

For me this season has the feeling of being back in the Championship in the sense that in that division even if we drew a game that we really should have won such as our away game to Palace, I still look on it as points gained rather than lost. This season the winners won't necessarily be the best team, but the one that was decent enough the most consistently. And that's why even though they've been nothing special at all, the table says that is Man U as of writing. I an see both of the Manchester clubs opening up a bit of a gap over the next few weeks, but when the Champions League matches come back round that will really test the teams still involved in it. That's why Man U, Spurs and ourselves might have a slight advantage as we can probably rest a few more players because it's the Europa. That said I expect Man U to almost forfeit that competition and just play their youngsters, they will be thinking Premier League all the way and given their current position it would be the right decision to do so.

 

Despite Covid, it's a great league this year though! Very interesting and exciting!

You could actually bookend that with the first L being a Big Sam team! 

 

So many quality teams and managers have failed there!
