Talking of Leeds, most exciting team Ive seen this season, the way they pressed Man City, frustrated and hassled them every minute of the game, as good as Liverpool in that game and wore Villa down. As you say, “Will their legs last?” I dont know but their fans and neutrals will have plenty of fun and enjoyment watching them. A sight for sore eyes.
By the way, weve done our bit as well, lovely to watch after the rubbish weve enjoyed for many years. Keep it up, lads. If it goes the other way now and again, we know how to take it, therell be no moaning, screaming and crying from us.

Leeds last night gave one of the best performances by a team I've seen this season, did most that the RS have done but can defend with it, and a stronger midfield. Villa basically shredded. Twenty-something goal attempts it ended up at. I wonder if they have an asthma problem? Hope they're off it when we play them.

We need to take advantage of this and hopefully collect all three points tomorrow, will not be easy, but we have the players to do it.
Asking a lot our neighbours to drop points tonight, already got inside every ref and var, they will get everything tonight, now Chelsea Utd drawing would be another good result.
We need to grab this opportunity tomorrow and get the points.

Its his usual routine. First game he scores, next one hits post, after that hes skying it over, then hes benched until he starts the same routine at his next club

My nerves are shot. I watched the game online via the Chester fan site, £5.99 for a good stream, no buffering or blackouts. I understand the 2 clubs split the money.
It was a really disciplined performance by the Mariners, rewarded with a generous penalty winner with 10 minutes to go. Chester looked to have equalised deep into added time but a linos flag out of nowhere came to the rescue.
£9,300 prize money takes it to £20k all told for the season, now for the likes of Sunderland or Ipswich away in the 1st round!
Getting giddy watching so much winning footy.

I bet it was a very happy coach load of players and officials going home tonight.

There may have been an upside, whereby they have been able to take on players from the squads of bigger clubs who would have once retained them but can no longer do so for financial reasons. They have got some decent players, and a good manager in Neil Young who worked wonders at Chester.
A televised match against a big club would be huge for them.

let's hope Lundstrum does us a favour tonight. The Irony a team nicknamed the Blades being their next opponents.

Guardiola seems to have lost his decisiveness in types of players to bring in to fill the gaps.
The shiite are rattled if they believe having VD once again is they key to them winning major trophies. Mindset has gone.
The league is wide open now boys.

Two very contentious decisions afterwards when you consider some of the pens seen this season, so they've had their blip and normal service has resumed!
That report about Liverpool maybe having to concentrate on the cups this season might be true because they treated us like a cup tie last week going on tonight's showing because a very limited Sheff Utd side have given them quite a few problems up to now.

Anyway Everton still top on merit. COYB.
68 Posted 24/10/2020 at 00:00:36
VAR is a few tweaks away from being successful in my opinion. Would Sheff Utd ever get a penalty at Anfield without it? It's leveling the playing field - now it just needs to stop being so picky.
69 Posted 25/10/2020 at 06:21:10
The pen, Im not even sure it was a foul, but do you think Dean would have given it, if he thought he was going to get overruled by his assistant in the studio, to a penalty?
Why wasnt Firminho flagged offside? And the last one only the future will tell us, but I will bet anyone, Mike Dean (hes actually raised two sons who have Liverpool season tickets?- say that 1000 times!) punishes a team before Xmas, and awards a penalty for the two others that he turned down in the first half last night.
Troy Deeney was correct (imo) and “real consistency” will only ever come about when referees are made to be accountable for their decisions, possibly by speaking to the public the day after the game.
I thought Liverpool were robbed at Goodison, but already their PR MACHINE AND ITS MOANING has paid dividends, because they dont do it for nothing you know!
