I feel like I'm on some sort of weird LSD drugs trip (I'm told that's what its like). Villa put 7 past Liverpool. Spurs put 6 past United at Old Trafford. West Ham win 3-0 at Leicester. And most weirdly of all, Saints win at St Mary's. Highlights of course were listening to Carragher and Neville having to commentate on their respective team's abysmal performances and Evra wanting to cancel his Sky contract, live on TV because he doesn't want to be a pundit anymore on United games and that although he isn't prone to violence he would start "smacking" a few (of the United players I guess).

Observations: As bright as PEH's star seems to be shining and to a degree Targett's , VvD's star is definitely on the wain. "Nutmegged" on one of Villa's goals, deflected another into the goal and generally seeming to have lost command of the back four. I said 2 or 3 weeks ago on here, he suddenly seems to be prone to making mistakes. Also a pretty nasty foul and booking today (but not as bad as Luke Shaw's - who should have been red-carded). I wish the Villa crowd had been in there singing "Sacked in the morning" to Klippity Klopp.

Add to the waining stars, Messrs. Lallana and Lemina (both not playing for their new clubs this weekend). Liverpool are obviously desperate for a back-up keeper as Adrian clearly isn't up to it.......I hear Southampton have a couple of possibilities - How about Fraser Forster (£15m-£20m)....or even a loan with an OBLIGATION to buy next season similar to the Danny Ings deal.  They might also be interested in a back four partner for VvD. Is it too late to mention Wesley Hoedt to them?

Not sure there will be time on MoTD2 for the Saints game the way today has gone, but all of a sudden, with what is happening elsewhere, a relatively comfortable 2-0 win looks to be a damn fine result. Cheers! 

 

I think VvD is bored and needs to move to Barcelona.

How in the hell is Hoj a player now? Was Ralph really holding him back somehow 

Has put in two excellent back to back performances that’s for sure but we said similar when Morgan debuted for United. Too early to say really. Watkins could be this seasons Pukki/Mutu, Villa could be this season’s Hull (under Brown) etc.

Better than any matches in years at Saints. I thought he was going to embarrass himself at Spurs lol

For someone who takes his Fantasy Team pretty seriously this season so far is proving an absolute nightmare. In the real world it's looking like it could be the most enjoyable and interesting season for god knows how long, certainly since the PL started.

Early days. But there’s probably a combination of Jose playing him exactly the right way, Jose’s man management, playing with better players, a slight drop off as he wanted out with us, the boost a new club gives you, and Spurs have bossed the last 2 games. When they were playing poorly he was woeful and over a season his limitations will be exposed imo. He’s not a game changer but  will probably do ok when they’re playing well, but will struggle when they’re off the pace.

He always had excellent defensive stats for Saints, that's the reason Spurs wanted him. His passing isn't the best, and that was more visible when he played for Saints than the defensive work he put in.

It's one of those incredibly rare transfers where both teams have done well out of it. KWP is more valuable to us with a few years on his contract in a weak position for us than Hojbjerg was with one year left on his contract in a position where we have more options, and Hojbjerg is more valuable to Spurs than a right back they weren't using.

We've lost one of our better midfielders, and Spurs have lost arguably their best right back.

Well its been a decent derby. Shocking defending and challenges though throughout!

Awful bias commentary on BT. Highly entertaining VAR. Poor ref.

Everton will be kicking themselves not to win that.

Clearly offside what you on about mate? 

Its not tho is it , for one that frameshot has come after pass has been made and secondly that line too me has come down from manes elbow which you obviously can't score from, if it comes from manes shoulder which it should then keanes arse plays him onside

United 2-1 now against Newcastle.  1 more goal for United and we go above Newcastle back into the top half of the table. #littlevictories

 

EDIT: Done.

Van Dijk out 7 to 8 month due to ACL injury

That's just speculation. Klopp said it's bad, but they're still waiting fur scan results so nothing definite. And he walked off the pitch, which would be unlikely for an ACL.

Not so sure about the not walking bit. I had to drive back from Devon after doing my ACL

Yeah one of my team walked off the pitch after doing his ACL in a Sunday league mate. Could tell from his scream it was pretty serious though. 

What really screwed him up with the surgeons leaving a piece of equipment inside him when they stitched him up 😳

On MOTD it showed a red line slightly behind a blue line ie offside. But looking at that screenshot the lines looked about 20 degrees out of line with the 18 yard line ! Totally ridiculous to give offside in this case because it didn’t look offside to the naked eye . VAR rules need a rewrite ASAP.

Palace getting what they deserved for defending the entire game. I bet their fans are glad they aren't at the stadium to watch that crap.

 

Speaking of ultra defensive, here come West Ham with a 5-4-1 formation against Spuds. 😖 So much dross in the Premier League this season.

 

Glad to be a Saints fan right now. We have a great manager in charge.

Used "dross" twice in one post 'cos I lack imagination.

I think 15 million for Hojberg is going to look a nice deal. I thought they had overpaid at the time, but he’s looked great the last 4 games. Turns out Mourinou does know more about football than me.
