    Great goal, total disgrace. I'm done.

    In the cold light of day it’s true that many teams are getting v poor decisions from VAR but I would suggest that the top six do not get quite so many go against them. We all agree that it must go. Strange that Liverpool have gained in just about every VAR check in their matches,

    Great goal, total disgrace. I'm done.

    I have watched football for fifty years with loads of lows and highs especially as a city fan but today I am truly considering never going again when my season ticket expires this season. When that second goal went in for us as usual I celebrated like the days when I was young un in the Barclay and for not one moment felt that this would be overturned. The sublime pass by Mario, the majestic control on the chest and finish by Teemu all left me rejoicing in that glow that follows a truly fabulous goal for your team and against BTW a champions league final opponent. And then the dreaded VAR intervenes. I can guarantee that this would never have been ruled out if the big six had scored it. I never mind losing or dropping two points when the opposition deserves it but today this was not the case. Football is now going to be accused of corruption because there is so much money involved now and the big influential clubs will always hold the power. Sadly it is now pretty odds on that we will be relegated, let us hope that VAR does not make it to the that level soon.

    Godfrey out for six weeks

    I would not want to move Tetts back to CB as he has been outstanding this season in the DF position. He has pleasantly surprised me with his performances and his experience and leadership in the team has been as you would expect excellent. The problem will be that Tetts will not last playing every game in the congested Christmas programme. I would give another go to Amadou in defence as he at least has some pace and that will not upset so much our defensive shape with Tetts as the shield. I fear that Hanley will be destroyed in the Premier league with his lack of pace, especially just returning to match fitness. I will be surprised if we buy anyone in the window - possibly we might see a loan - but the Norwich way seems to bring someone in and then not play them for at least two weeks and even if someone arrives on New Year's Day that is almost a waste of time with Ben back in February. The injury to BG could not have come at a worse time.
  4. Anyone know when these fixtures around the winter break get finalised?
  5. Wolves certainly looked mightily impressive v Spurs and coming back to the OP I would say here and now that a draw against them will be a massive point. The game that we really need to win is at Villa Park and it is winnable, but sadly our record on Boxing Day is normally pants!
  6. This is excellent analysis - thanks for posting
  7. You had better go to every away game from now on with that record!

    Very much appreciated TC!

    Sheffield United game

    Thanks. Is that game televised then? Part of Amazon Prime’s coverage?
  10. Just noticed that the home game v Sheffield United has been moved from Saturday 7th Dec to Sunday 8th Dec with a 2pm kick off. It’s not down as a televised match to my knowledge. Anyone know why it’s been changed?
  11. Yes, I like our higher position in this one and leaving a certain historic team in our tracks. Our aim must be to reach and then keep in the top 20 of this league.
  12. I think that the table is bang up to date. Yes, for every Premiership season we lose out on four games (38) to all of the clubs in the old first division (42) days. Ipswich made it to the top flight about ten years before us explaining their extra games although as you say by the end of the season we will match them for seasons in there. Our next target is the points total.
  13. Thanks for your comments - I had to give my son and future son in law who are both aged 27 a few history lessons when I shared the table with them! I agree with the point re MK Dons - they shouldn’t really be in the list it should be Wimbledon. Sad to see someone like Bury FC in the list with over 800 games and no longer in existence. Notts County was a surprise to me having played more games than us in the top flight. That must have been a long time ago. Of course when a club came into existence needs to be factored into the table as well. And for you young uns, you’ve never had it so good really as we only made it into the top flight for the first time in 1972.
  14. Found this table v interesting: https://www.worldfootball.net/alltime_table/eng-premier-league/ Everton have played more games in the First Division/Premiership than anyone else. Liverpool lead the table on points gained closely followed by the gunners. We need to survive this season to overtake the boys from Suffolk in the amount of games played in the top flight. Some teams in this table that you might find v surprising if you’re under 30. Enjoy...
