Don't forget that Wolves/Birmingham clash! A huge result for whoever wins in that top of the table clash, although of course it ended in a draw!

Also, weird to have a Saturday with none of the big 4 participating. Tomorrow is going to be a bloodbath; Manchester derby, a London derby...

Villa could go 3rd if they pull out a win, so that's fun.

Villa should win, but it's nilsies in the 36th.

I didn't forget about Wolves-Brummies. It had already finished 1-1 before i put the thread up. Did you want me to put up last night's FA Cup games as well?

0-0 in Aberdeen.

Bigus Dickus said...

2-1 down now. I hate us! We suck! Bottom 3 here we come. They ruin every Saturday. Every fu*king one.

Boring, Boring Sunderland is losing to Stupid Fucking Bolton in the match I was least likely to watch when I awoke this morning.

SF Bolton, best team in the league (today). 4-1 now at Sunderland.

Bigus Dickus said...

2-0 now through a Lee Miller Penalty. Motherwell down to 10 men.

Bigus Dickus said...

3-2 Wednesday. Why do they tease me. Bastards.

Bigus Dickus said...

...and screwed by the ref. A ref who fails to send of Tudgay when he fouled hoolahan in front of an empty net 6 yards out but he can send off Kennedy for nonsense. Outrageous. Now we don't have a defender for Ipswich at home. One prick has now spoiled the next two weeks. Oh and Tudgay scored their third, shouldn't be on the pitch. Sickening.

having seen a few Newcastle matches, I wouldn't mind if Arsene went after Bassong in the January transfer window.

And the fog on the pitch made for an interesting second half in that derby.

I've only been watching the EPL on a regular basis for about 3 years, but Sunderland turned in the worst defensive performance I've ever seen at this, or almost any, level. They gifted Elmander with 3 different 1 v GK chances, and he only converted once, so the 4-1 score actually flatters the Black Cats. It very easily could have been 6 or 7 instead. They had no shape as a unit, and then compounded that with totally incompetent decisions and misplays. It was a complete mental and physical capitulation, and I really have to wonder if something is seriously wrong in their locker room, whether its Keane or something else...

Also, the fog in the PNE-BC game is making the end of the Boro game look bright and sunny. Even the shots from the sideline make it clear that the fog has made it to ground level - I'm not sure a GK can see the opposite goal...
