    The imaginatively titled Premier League 21/22 Thread

    I actually missed the replays, but apparently it was offside by a few inches. Not quite the farcical VAR ’half a pube’s width’ but close enough that it looked on in real time. Academic anyway. Had it stood, I suspect Pool would have woken up and scored 3 more

    I think there was another game on Sunday too, not Leicester Brentford............Oh yeah Utd Pool. Scholesy deserves credit for predicting that. On Wednesday night he said if Utd play like that against Liverpool it will be 3 or 4 at HT. They did, and it was four. It could, and should have been...

    Yeah it looks that way. He was strange appointment. Not one that screamed of ambition. It is still early days, albeit the signs are not promising. And, WHAT THE **** was Harry Kane doing for Antonio's goal? He just stands there holding Antonio as he knocks it in. It's like a little lovers...

    I dunno, historically Pool always did OK in games against Utd. Yeah, they lost more than they won, but given the general standing of the two clubs over the last 20 years Pool won more than they probably should have. I suspect the same holds for Utd over the last 5/6 years. For most of the last 4...

    latest film/ dvd you have seen

    Just resurrecting this thread, I went to see Dune last night. **** me!!! Superb. It is visually amazing. Obviously there are a lot of special effects but they all blend in seamlessly and the whole thing looks superb. They have split the film in two parts, which makes sense given how complex the...

    Utd doing a ehhh Utd last night. Play poorly, go two down and then pull their arses out of the just in time. Winning when playing badly is supposedly the sign of a good team, but when you have to do it every other week is it not a bit worrying? Utd are the most Jackle and Hyde side I know, and...

    Pretty much anyone is an improvement in OGS though. On that note, Steve Bruce is available. He’s a Utd legend, has tonnes of experience……… I agree, but I dare say he will sign on for 300kpw ish. Still a ridiculous amount but then actors get stupid sums for a few weeks/months “work” on a film...

    Yup, some game. Must have been brilliant for the neutral. I hated every second of it. I don't enjoy games against Atleti (or Utd TBH) I endure them. Unless Pool are 3/4 up and cruising, obv. Not sure where to start. Brilliant first 20 mins by Pool, who then totally switched off and let Atleti...

    Yeah, Brentford are a good side, playing very good/brave football and it's working for them atm. Long may it continue. That was a superb 3pts for Chelsea. Their keeper got MOTM, which says it all. But from what I saw of the game, he made a lot of "good" saves but nothing out of the ordinary...

    I hope you're right. I would much rather find out it's some bird trying to get her 5 mins of fame, than ANOTHER footballer being a sex pest. Again, not that grabbing a woman's arse randomly is acceptable in this day and age, but it's a dam sight more palatable than the alternative.

    And they compound it by appointing Ranieri. A man who at his last 4 jobs has a win rate below 40%.

    100% Some ****ing game yesterday (Pool City). How City weren't 2 up at HT I will never know, that was a bloody fisting (hello Mr. Swear word checker, you gonna pick up on that one!?). Pool were miles better in the second half, I'd almost say, the better of the two teams, but they both played...

    Kane's back in form then @edd_jedi!? I mean they were dead good that bunch of part timers from Slovenia, and the European fizzy trophy challenge league plate thing is a proper competition, right!? Joking aside, a hat-trick will do his confidence no harm. Albeit, the fact your reserves...

    I agree Edd, that’s why I framed my previous question in the context of “would second place but being Xpts off the top be acceptable, or would a decent CL run etc.” I suspect most big 4/6/7 fans would be happy if they saw their team making genuine progress year on year and getting close, or...

    Aye, I think everyone knows where I stand on him and his ability as a manager. Yet another get out of jail moment last night. There will come a time when his expensively assembled squad don’t have any moments of brilliance or luck/dodgy late penalties (delete as appropriate) to bale him out. By...

    You are probably right. That hardly bodes well for the long term prospects for Utd though. Look what happened at Arsenal once CL qualification became the only goal.

    Aye, ehhh WTF is he doing there and WHY does he feel the need/think the cameras won't pick it up?! It was probably barely even a yellow, more a verbal warning, but it is totally brainless. You'll make the top four, easily. There are four sides who are head and shoulders better than the...
