2020/21 Soccer Thread: Messxit?

Still pretty open. Saints current PL form is LLLLLL and we're only 10 points ahead of you. CP has been right with us heading down the flume.

Tottenham wins, United wins, Arsenal gets an away draw, and Rangers played the most interesting game of the day.

Spurs and USWNT win, and my power has been on for 24 hours! What a day!

Antwerp has a trademark on European games like this:

Lovely play from Minamino to sit the defence down so he can roll the ball in.

Saints will almost certainly throw the lead away, but that was nice.

Anyway, I believe we are now at "Liverpool in crisis!" time.

After going almost four years without a home defeat in the league, Liverpool have now lost four in a row. That is utterly bonkers.

Half the first team is on the treatment table with Henderson joining them tonight. The penalty was just a joke - now being given for the attacking player running into someone lying on the ground - even after VAR told him to look at it again, and still made the wrong decision.

I’m not saying this slump isn’t now deeply concerning but it’s not like it’s unexplainable. The problem now is how to Liverpool alter their game style to cope with it? That’s where Klopp just hasn’t got it right yet. Still I think Jota isn’t too fair from coming back and VVD is now back at Melwood. If I were Liverpool I’d also be making sure the entire team suffer an injury crisis over the summer so none of them have to play in the Euros or any other cup competition. Collectively they need a time out. Something this season isn’t big on.

And I had to laugh at the city fan saying we’ve got no depth. That’s because we don’t have billions being poured in to cover the cost of 2 first teams. Neither does anyone else in the league.

Preach!

I'm starting to get nervous, Pred. Saw a projection yesterday that had Fulham finishing just 3 points behind Newcastle.

I've seen portions of maybe half of Fulham's last half dozen matches and they have consistently looked solid. So much better than two years ago. Huge win today! Now just need Newcastle to drop points tomorrow.

Things in your rear-view mirror are closer than they appear.

Suffice to say we disagree - though had Alexander-Arnold not raised his leg to ensure DCL went down, I think there'd be a case to be made there.

As it is, DOGSO and he was lucky to remain on the pitch.

I love this because the prices are just so quaint these days.

Anyway, we'll see if they do it continentally, but they could just hand the title to City right now, right?

Arsenal made it interesting for themselves.

I'll take it!

Never know what can happen in cup competitions (last year FA Cup).

The Saka to Auba stuff was fun. I can tolerate Arsenal being erratic if I get to watch some good football occasionally and a dollop of David Luiz hilarity.

Benfica has been dreadful this season. Arsenal can only blame themselves.
