jeez it was tedious. Miracle we escaped 0-0, and that was mostly down to Southampton being utter cack. A point? But whats the point? we had nothing up front and no purpose. He tried both Maiga and replaced him with Vaz te and dont think either of them touched the ball. Anyone thinking of watching match of the day - dont!

Id like to find the twat at Sky whose dumb idea it was to think a Southampton v West ham game would ever make decent prime sunday viewing?

This should have been on at 3am inbetween Teleshopping and The ricky Gervais cartoon just to make sure no one saw it!!

Well done Bill, you cried a point home there smile
Right, I'm gonna try it. God, I hate football, we've got a terrible record against Swansea, they always
do us, bet we get stuffed... wink

Are you kidding? This match will be the Brendan Rodgers derby!

Watched the highlights of the Everton-Chelsea match. Nice stuff with Gareth Barry's on-loan goal-saving tackle the best play I've seen so far this season.

2 prevalent points from yesterday's borefest:

West Ham
No goals in three matches and no Andy Carroll for the foreseeable future.


Southampton
Only one win and five goals in their last ten Premier League matches. And yet Victor Wanyama is talking about the Champions League.

Doesn't he know that the transfer window's closed now?

Time for my weekly OCD recap of this thread's relevant teams' results. I'll fill in Liverpewl's result after they fall to Swansea 2-1. wink

I guess I should be writing "Round" instead of "Week", as that's how it's usually stated. Or I could retain my charming American terms and endear me all the more to you...

Week Four: September 14-16, 2013

Southampton 0 West Ham 0- I'm going to put a positive spin on this match and call it "The Jussi Jääskeläinen Show", as the West Ham keeper kept his flaccid, powder-blue-wearing side in the match with several excellent saves.

Swansea City 2 Liverpool 2 Liverpool's win streak ends but they hang on for a draw. Daniel Sturridge scores in his fourth consecutive match and give Thomas and Kev another occasionto body pop.

English Championship

Bolton 0 Leeds United 1- The Oblicno-Tall Guy grudge match ends in victory for the Elongated One's side, as a seventh-minute Luke Varney goal is the difference. That's four consecutive league losses for the Wanderers.

You could hardly be more endearing, Jim. But in fact, this idea of calling matchdays "rounds" isn't getting much purchase as far as I can see. You have to play x number of matches, and by the end of the season you've played them, and that's it. Some are on Saturday, some Sunday, some Monday and some are squeezed in to other days between for postponements, but I don't know anyone who does other than think: we're two points behind with a game in hand - so in reality that's us a point ahead.

You should write for The Sun! "Grudge match" my hint end! We exchanged pleasantries before and after the match, shook hands on it (in a cyberific sort of way) and both remain committed to our mighty whites. (But mine won!)

jim, OCD ? - werent they the organisation in Robocop?!!! i was thinking whats ocd got to do with the er Premiership!!!??

Calling it the jussi show gives the match a bit more credit than it deserves.
Implying that southampton created loads of chances. I think he made just Two impressive saves.
You sun journos - if that constitutes a story i will eat my 1975 cup final winning scarf and bobble hat.

ive come out in a rash just talking about the game!!

Liverpool tonight? odd one as Swansea overdue an improved performance but reds should have too much for them even if its a nicked 1 nil.

jim no mention of a fairly limp united getting refs help to another win against ten men? ha ha.
Suspect the better test will manc derby soon.

Palace ian holloway made me laugh.
he said he sat with united crowd and they were rabidly partisan.
"They were screaming for a penalty before we had even kicked off!!"

I watched the United-Palace match and I don't think they should have given a penalty for that. The ref wasn't even in position to call it. Maybe he was intimidated because Sir Alex was in attendance.

Speaking of Manchester, no one's said anything about City getting stonewalled by your other favorite team, Stoke. wink

For tonight's Swansea-Liverpool match I guess it all depends on which Swansea City shows up and will Sturridge be match fit for Liverpool?

If there's any way we U.S. fans can see English Championship highlights, I'd like to know the site that has them. Most of my footy info comes from the BBC. Hurry up and get promoted Leeds, so we can see you on the big stage where you belong.

Oh, and once more: nice Everton-Chelsea match with Gareth "On Loan" Barry's great goal-saving slide.

There's a programme called The Football League Show that's on the Beeb right after Match of the Day, showing highlights of all the games in the Championship and Leagues 1 and 2. (With any luck I'll be able to cancel the "series record" on my Virgin Media Tivo for it next season.)

Any thoughts on the Swansea-Liverpool Monday nighter? I'll check the highlights after work.

The 1st half was pretty good. Two teams who like to play the fast slick passing game (even if
its not going anywhere!!). It could have been titled The Jonjo Shelvey Show, in that he caused
everything...scored, set-up and gave two away. I thought a draw was a fair result, even though
Swansea finished the stronger. Next up is Southampton at home, then its the return of the Luis
Suarez Show!

Sheesh. I wake up to see this thread buried under a bunch of the usual crap dan the man topics.

There was some seriously soft defending on both sides in the highlights I saw, with no one coming up to make tackles, defenders well out of position, and tons o' space for attackers to run through the area. At least both goalkeepers kept their ends up by making several saves--they had to!

Did Steven Gerard even play? I know he did but he mustn't have had many touches and he was invisible.

Still talented but it catches them all up eventually.
Sometimes they find another head of steam and pull a season out of the bag when people start writing them off. Giggs and Lampard have done this. but its some player that can do this after mid 30s.

Last night's game was more about Jonjo Shelvey. At least it reminded me of the reason we got rid of him i.e. he's a complete liability.



Meanwhile over in Yorkshire, Brian McDermott is suffering delusions of grandeur..."scary", it isn't..

Gerard happens to be my favorite "Premiership" player, so when he's not in the thick of things, I worry. lol

As for disappearing during a game, the under thirty Wayne Rooney does this better than most anyone.

Okay, it's Champions League Tuesday. Will Manchester United fall to Bayer Leverkusen? Will Manchester City ever do anything besides flame out in the group stage? Will Olympiakos stun PSG?
