Premier League Round Up (Mar 6-8 2021)

Recommended Posts

For those of you still reading these I salute you. Another grim weekend from our perspective and it’s now reached a stage where I no longer have any idea who we are in competition with and who we need to lose games. I guess it doesn’t matter when we lose every week anyway.

 

The top four looks like it’s well gone now so we’re almost at the point where we need those above us to keep winning so we can avoid the Europa League spots. Playing on Thursday nights (or even worse, afternoons!) again? Nah, you’re alright. We’ll pass. 

 

So barring an immediate upturn in results that keep us in contention for the top four, we’re close to being in the situation where we need those around us to win rather than lose. It’s been that kind of season though. Absolutely fucking insane. 

 

Ok, let's get cracking then. Brighton played quite well again but were beaten by Leicester. Their problems are obvious. They just can’t score the goals to match their nice approach play. A mate said to me this week that they should sign Origi because he’s a good finisher. They could do worse and so could he. If they stay they should be looking at jibbing Welbeck and bringing in Div.

 

They did take the lead in this game when Lallana ran onto a Maupay pass and finished well. He then hit the bar with a header that would have made it 2-0 and probably seen them pick up maximum points. He also set up a goal for Maupay that was ruled out for offside and generally he ran the show for an hour. His season with them has been pretty much what everyone would have expected. He’s played some decent stuff and been in and out with injuries. Such a shame how his body kept letting him down because an injury free, prime Lallana would get in any midfield in the country. Except one picked by my mum, obviously.

My boy Bamford had a terrible day in front of goal. Any Other Day he would have had a hat-trick but this was no Bed of Roses for him. There should be No Apologies though, just Blame it on the Love of Rock and Roll Paddy lad. Anyone wanting to have a go at him just needs to Hush. Ok ok I’ll stop now.

 

 

This really should have stopped months ago

Kept half an eye on that Dawson lad since he was in the England under-21's and he has made me a few bob betting on him scoring over the years. Odd how some defenders just seem to have the knack while others couldn't score in a brothel. I remember William Gallas explaining his system attacking corners as just aiming to arrive 4 or 5 yards out facing the back post saying you get 5 goals a season from tap ins on deliveries that have avoided everybody or deflected through.

Yeah it's just obvious and it baffles me whenever I see a corner avoid everyone and then go out of play on the other side. Hanging around that back post is something every team should have a player doing.

We could still end up in Europe in that new Conference thing that starts next season despite our best efforts in the league.

With our home league form we could just end up in the Conference

Things like "chimpleton" are why I'm still reading these!

 

This year has been beyond shite for us, but sooner or later it'll get better. All we can do is grin and bear it until it does. We've had 3 pretty good years and I'm sure there'll be more to come. VAR will get it's reckoning, they're asking all club managers and captains to give feedback on it, can't imagine there'll be too many glowing endorsements.

Apart from the Manc derby result which I accidentally saw on Twitter, this is the first time hearing these results.  Kane is a shoe-in for the FWA player of the year as they've been blowing smoke up his arse all season about his 'assists', the slobbering goon, isn't the PFA one usually voted for around now?

I don't put too much stock in the 'assists' stat but in fairness to Kane most of his have been legit ones. Great through balls and crosses to Son and Bale.

 

He's by far and away POTY for me.

 

Still hate him like, but there's no doubt he's a great player.

He'd be unbelievable in our team.

 

Perfect for Mane and Salah.

Prior to the last 12 months I'd have completely disagreed with that, but the way he's developed his game now to be able to drop deep and create as well as play up top and score, yeah, he'd be amazing.

 

I'd probably still hate him though!

Him or Fernandes this season, they have both been incredible.

 

Obviously I have to say I hate them...

 

...but fuck me would I love either/both in our team right now.
