    With the team that was playing, I thought they did quite well to eke out a draw. But a horrendously boring match though.

    Ha. You should have seen Saturday's Norwich 0-0 Chelsea in the FA Cup. I felt sorry for the traveling fans. Until they started mocking Baka, that is.

    Pulisic to United rumors again going strong.... once again. if i'M one of the prem teams with a bigger US following...Ars, Liv, United, Chels whatever it takes, Id be going for him. On Jersey sales and tv alone. (my boy would have a Kit regardless-well unless maybe its city LOL)

    Go back and forth on whether United would be good for his development or the USA. Mourinho has a reputation of being a player ruiner (but somehow has managed with Lingard and a couple others) Actually think that young man might be too good for us LMAO

    Yeah, Mourinho doesn't know how to develop attacking players. Not the best landing place for him. Plus, he wouldn't play much.

    cannot disagree. But wish to be proven otherwise. :photog

    That's three scoreless in a row for Chelsea. Leicester were outstanding until Conte changed formation and personnel.

    Walk on, walk on! Liverpool were magnificent today. The Ox, Andy Robertson, Bobby Firmino. City scored late on when Liverpool stopped pressing, but until then they didn't look dangerous.

    LCFC were the better side up until that soft second yellow that put them down to 10 men. Chelski, however poorly they are playing, are not as bad as the Gunners. They were god-awful and got the result they deserved.

    Like I said before. I still worry most about Liverpool knocking us out of 2nd by the end of this season. Chelsea, Spurs showing class. But I feel like the reds are right on the cusp of clicking in. (plus I just love Kloppy)


    Almost certain we'll draw with Stoke today. also Sanchez rumors? why?! yuck.... however.... seems every time we steal players from Arsenal (or other top rivals) its ends well for us. HAHAHA

    Ligue 1 ref in the PSG match cuts in front of a player, is knocked over accidentally. His response? He kicks out at the player. Then gives him a second yellow and sends him off. Ref now suspended.

    Of course, the one day I don't head down to Brit's to watch, the Reds pull one out against the (lite) blues! Hadta prove selling Coutinho wasn't a bad move.

    Though, later that evening I did fall out of my chair at the bar at the end of the vikes game :imaposer

    have a friend up there, bouncing off the walls about it. I'm like "shut up" he says "well I had to listen to hours of chatter about liverpool so YOU shut up" lol Both matches had the same outcome. 29-24... is basically just 4-3 without the pointless score inflation. However, City and pool didn't take 4 hrs to get there.

    truthfully, I'm just butt hurt that My Simpsons episode was once again usurped by the extremely long winded NFL commentators. Did enjoy seeing that touchdown though. good stuff. Hope you guys get in, Home super bowl advantage would be sweet.
