Premier League Round Up (Mar 12-14 2021)

Recommended Posts

A good weekend as the Reds weren’t able to ruin it by losing and I was able to just completely avoid all footy until now, as I catch up on it by watching MOTD. I’d prefer to play on Monday nights all the time now until we’re allowed back in.

 

I know I say this a lot, but until now I didn’t have a clue how most of these games finished. I knew Everton lost to Burnley because it was mentioned in one of the group chats. This did not surprise me in the least because Everton are fucking shit. I keep saying it and they keep proving it. 

 

They’re fucking pathetic. The horrific run we’ve been on and the countless opportunities we’ve given them to pull away from us, and they keep shitting the bed. It offends me so much that we’ve let them get this close to us and I feel like slapping our players and saying to them “you should be fucking ashamed. Look how shit they are. Now look at the fucking table!!” 

 

Their home form is almost as bad as ours. Burnley went in front very early when Tom Davies lost the ball and seconds later Wood was smashing it into the net. 

 

Burley then wanted a penalty for handball. That would be given maybe 75% of the time as the defender’s arm is up above his head as the ball hits it. I don’t want to see that given as a penalty as his arm is up because he’s jumping, but  more often than not that would be given. Burnley don’t get pens though. Only when they play us.

 

McNeill made it 2-0 with an absolutely brilliant goal. Nice drop of the shoulder to leave his marker for dead, then a perfectly placed curler from 25 yards right into the postage stamp. Goal of the month probably that.

 

It will be enough to keep people talking about what an exciting young player he is when the truth is he’s a poor man’s Stewart Downing. I’ve said it before, but he gets overhyped because of two things. 

 

One, Burnley don’t ever give any young players a chance so the assumption is that he must be special. He isn’t.

 

Two, Burnley don’t have any players with pace or skill, so because McNeill has both it stands out way more than it would if he played for someone else. Don’t get me wrong, I think he’s alright and I’m not saying he’s shit, but two goals a season from an attacking player is Downing-esque. That was a great goal though.

 

It almost got even worse for Everton as Gudmundsen hit the post with a low shot from 20 yards. That would have been game over but the Blues took advantage of that reprieve and pulled one back through Calvert-Lewin. The absolute state of Nick Pope again though. Making himself small, Adrian style.

 

He did make a good stop to deny Gomes soon after though. Mee hit the bar and Vydra was denied by some jabroni keeper they brought on to replace the injured Prickford and Burnley were good value for the points. Technically they’re still in the relegation discussion but there’s no fucking way they’re going to be caught by any of those below them.

Fucking hell Dave - you had to remind us that Stewart Downing once played for us ?  I'd almost wiped that from memory. Your destruction of Lamela redressed the balance a bit, but still.......

Defiant Dave's doubling down on the two-footed debate has now led to him attaining: "My boy Dave Usher" status.

 

On a similar note, an old mate who never liked footie always moaned that it was pathetic that so many highly paid professionals were too lazy to train themselves to use both feet. It was difficult to argue with him really, as he also pointed out that if they could afford the time to play 18 holes on the golf course, then they had time to work on the weaker foot.

As soon as my lads took an interest in kicking a ball, I had them using both feet. My right footed youngest now passes and shoots better with his left than some kids in his team can with their right.

Don't start me , on a night out my mates know that all they need to do to light the blue touchpaper is mention the likes of Riise refusing to use their right foot or the lack of ballboys at Anfield.

*sigh* Riise against Chelsea in 2008. Last action of the game, all he had to do was put it into block 109, but because the ball came to him on his right foot he decided to head it...

Dave, “Raise your hands” and “Keep the Faith” and “Maybe Someday” you could be “Taking it Back”
