Other Games - 2020/2021


Recommended Posts

Leeds are always very entertaining to watch and I look forward to their games but, like most newly promoted teams, after making a promising start, they are getting dragged down into a relegation battle. They are probably the only one of the 3 promoted teams that will stay up but not by much.

Another win tonight. Will be pushing top 6 this season for sure. Declan Rice is a superb player. 

West Ham have spent a lot in the transfer market, which they can afford to do because they were gifted a big stadium by the nation but their key player, for me, this season has been Souček. He really has been superb. I think we'll finish above them though as we have a better manager and better team. They don't have a striker in the same class as Danny Ings.

They are poor at defending set pieces and need a lot of chances to score a few goals.

The hype around them when they came up was insane. Talk of them challenging the top 6, Bielsa nominated from European coach of the year or something. I’m one of the few that has soft spot for Leeds but there was no way they were going to be anywhere near the top 6, even most of their fans admitted that.

They are a bottom half side (At the moment), with a genuine foundation to build upon. Agree, the hype at the start around them was silly (I even saw some comparing them to Leicester's title win).

Whilst they are fun to watch, defensively they are pretty diabolical - from open play and set pieces. Easy to score against them, just need to take your chances - you will get plenty against them every game. If the goals dry up for Bamford (which they are doing, as he's pretty limited...he had a bit of a purple patch) they will get sucked down the table.

They need Rodrigo to start settling in and popping up with some goals.

Jimenez , can he play again ? Cech wore head protection but could an outfield player ?

It was career ending for Ryan Mason, but Alex Telles came back from the same injury.

No timeframe on Jiminez in the public domain at the moment. Certainly no guarantees he can safely return, which would be a big shame, he’s a great player.

Wasnt he rubbish at Bolton? Or am I thinking of someone else.

Yeah he was, I think he was on loan there? Didn't rip up any trees.

Then went to Spain and Valencia and became a bit of a special player for them. Maybe he's just not suited to this league.

I cannot see West Brom, Sheff U staying up. I think they're gone already and they might as well start planning for the championship.

Last spot is between Fulham and Burnley for me. Fulham have a bit more about them, so hopefully Burnley go - as they bring absolutely sod all to this league.

You are 100% responsible if we lose tomorrow!

Chelsea lose, ergo it's up to 3rd place for the mighty Saints tomorrow :)

IF Saints can beat Sheffield United tomorrow, Everton have done us a big favour by beating Chelsea. But, we can't take anything for granted. It's reached the stage now, where we want the mid table teams to beat the top teams and the other top teams to draw against each other.

It could be one of those years. Arsenal look terrible, man united and city under performing. Chelsea and Leicester blowing hot and cold. With a bit of momentum who knows. We can beat anyone on our day and with a bit of luck and no major injuries maybe we could achieve something great this season
