I had checked the results on Wednesday and I was sitting pretty on a hefty total – with others not far behind. I looked at the final scores today and Arsenal losing at home to Brighton and Newcastle winning away at Sheffield I thought I had a shot at my first first [human] place for the season. But out of the pack and out of the blue, AB mustered TWO final day exacts to obliterate the field.
I’ll post the aggregate standings after the results this next weekend.
Comments on the Week
“The game has changed. This game now is completely different to what I experienced as a 16-year-old lad as an apprentice. This game in a heartbeat has changed. I don’t know where it is going and it is sucking the life out of me and the supporters.”Chris Wilder
I think I’m with Chris Wilder on this one. If VAR was just fixing broken issues I think we would all support it but the reality is that it’s not fixing everything and adding new breaks. Goes have been questionably allowed and some with obvious failure (Southampton against Watford) and some with dubious definition of single phase of play with a minimal margin of play, some reviews just missed.
I won’t go as far as saying VAR is ruining the game but it drastically reshaping my interest
ME: “Merseyside derby should be the cause of another sacking! “
Good call…. I think we can expect Richarlison to express desire to leave very soon.
