The fuck is the point of Norwich other than to give the top teams a chance to extend their goal difference. How does anyone support a shitfest like that?

TBF the lineup of 3pm games from the best league in the world is shockingly bad across the board.

Don't mind them as a club but they need a complete rethink about how the club operates. They just seem to be happy to be a nice club who stick to their principles of trying to play good football and never seem to be that arsed about getting relegated then coming back up.

 

They need to be a bit more snide and ruthless. Maybe try fighting to stay in the league to consolidate themselves for a few years then progress like a Brighton have done.

Put some money on the last 10 mins of the Chelsea game, didn't win, but I've watched it back and the ball was literally only in play for 10 seconds between 80.00 and 85.20 mins....

 

And then in the remaining 5 mins plus 3 injury time there were 5 free kicks, 3 throwins, 1 offside, and 1 goal + celebration.  

In total, the ball was probably active for about 3 mins of the final 13 mins.  

 

I had £8 on there being over 1.5 goalkicks in the final 10 (turned out to be 13) mins.  Which I thought was a good bet as Norwich were a man down, and Chelsea were shooting for fun.  There were actually zero goalkicks taken in that time as a result of the ball being dead for the majority of it.

I reckon that is a pretty good racket.

They pay Championship level salaries - take a Premier League cut of TV money when they come up, then get a parachute payment when relegated.

They would need to double their wage bill to even have a chance to stay up now.

Palace vs Saudi Arabia is a good game. Palace are all over them. Their pressing has been spot on.

Palace are good to watch this year. Vieira is definitely better than I gave him credit for, they look like a well coached team. If he can add some better players (still loads of Hodgson's squad there) they'll be decent.

79% possession in the first half.

Fucking hell the clubs that come up from the championship juat get worse and worse. 

The gulf between the PL and Championship just gets wider. It would be easy to just put Norwich's capitulation today as a one off except it isnt, they get snotted almost every week.

 

Brentford are making a fist of it but will they last the season? It's also weird they are doing the best out of the 3 promoted sides considering they came up via the play off.

The ref in this Leeds game is  miles out of his depth. Raphina just gone off injured for a tackle that should have been a red card and he awards a free for a non existent hand ball.
