Thread: Weekend's other games (April 12-15)

  1. #1

    Default Weekend's other games (April 12-15)

    So assuming we all want to start with a Leicester win? Don't see Newcastle going down, but keeping some pressure on ahead of our trip to st James' (refuse to use the other name) together with Leicester pushing on in the chase for 7th is probably the best scenario for us I guess.

    If Leicester win we’ll be 2 points behind Newcastle with 2 games in hand. No reason to hope for nothing other than that.

    Probably not accurate but Newcastle seem to have gone off the boil

    Hope Leicester beat Newcastle tonight so we then can have the opportunity to go above them tomorrow.

    Any of their strikers on a goal-scoring drought? If so, we can take care of that.

    Leicester lots of possession without any threat. Newcastle very sharp on the break

    Really is like watching a Puel team.

    At least we know when Rafa eventually leaves Newcastle, they’ll probably be a lot worse.

    Made a cheeky grand on tonight’s result. Trust a puel’s side to lose at home against a side it’s heavily expected to beat.

    Leicester reminded me of Saints for the last couple of seasons. No intensity at all until the last few minutes. Lots of slow possession, no penetration.

    Hughton’s sides are awful to watch. Dull and cautious. He’ll happily take a point and no doubt set Brighton up that way.

    The trip on Gunarsson was probably the best shout, never the two ‘handballs’. I really hope VAR isn’t used in super slow-mo like they do on MOTD, it gives an entirely false impression of the incident. The first shout where the ball was blasted at Mee from two yards away and his arm was down by his side... do me a favour. Wright made himself sound a proper melon too, saying "it’s right at goal, that was going in." Is that relevant? Do you get a penalty if it’s a shot on target, even if it’s not deliberate?

    For the Gunarsson claim I thought the defender flicked the ball away with his left foot.

    I agree with you about VAR and slow motion. It gives a false impression of the incident and makes it appear as if the defender has time to get his arm out of the way. There’s also a ‘repetition bias’ at play here. When you first see the incident in real time you don’t know where the ball is going so it will appear accidental. By the time you’ve seen the replay several times and in slow motion you can convince yourself that the defender has made contact with the ball deliberately.

    Is the Brighton-Cardiff match on the tele? Weird if not, pretty vital game.

    The head to arm one was very similar to the one we conceded against Stephens, although his arm was higher.

    Bless em give them something. It's been a horrible few months for the Puel vs Silva gang.

    Puel rightfully sacked and Leicester resurgent. Everton get wins over Chelsea, Arsenal, WHU (A) and hold Liverpool.... It's been a nightmare 6 weeks for some.

    Everton are now www.onthebeach.co.uk

    Yes. Pretty sure there's a requirement that no domestic games can be shown on a CL night. They don't even like games being played then.

    .... but this weekend the tables were turned. Leicester losing at home and Everton losing at Fulham. Silva thinks Everton will finish 7th. Bottom half more likely.

    Any arm above the head is asking for trouble especially if it’s just the one arm.

    Though given that his arm was above his head because Crouch sad trying to rip the shirt off his back, still wasn't a penalty.

    Still hoping for a desired treble this season:

    1. Saints stay up
    2. Pompey stay down
    3. Liverpool choke again

    Quietly confident of 2 and 3. Supremely confident of 1.

    Liverpool score twice in 2 minutes to take a 2-0 lead.

    That will annoy a few people on here I'm sure.

    I’m genuinely convinced Liverpool will win the title, I just can’t see them dropping another point.

    its happening, isnt it
    also, just shows how tactically strange Sarri is. Hazard has been electric playing wide left lately so starts him up front....when back wide left, causing havoc

    small margins but that is the difference at succeeding at the top

    I can see it being peak Liverpool for them to win all their games only to see City do the same.

    I can imagine. Probably like what it would be here if the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup. Wall to wall fellating.
