Ah, sod it. Chelsea win on a penalty shootout after having two players rightly sent off. That'll teach these big clubs that it's counterproductive to field weakened teams against what they mistakenly see as lesser opposition. Kudos, Canaries!

We were on the edge of our seats (well, the sofa) all evening, and when Jamal Lewis scored nearly at full time, we could hear Ruth-over-the-road and her husband yelling in their front room! The Canaries played very well, solidly and steadily. But the behaviour of two of the Chelsea players (sent off) was awful. And the ref didn't appear to have a full grip on the match at all.
My husband was doing an African dance when Lewis scored. But penalties are a disappointing way to settle a match aren't they?

I thought the ref did quite well in the face of Chelsea's antics. The reds for Pedro and Morata were well deserved. I've watched that alleged Willian penalty about twenty times now and I think the ref was right not to give it. To me, Willian seemed to be trailing a leg in order to be deliberately caught, and he went down way too easily. Willian is a player I hugely admire but it looked to me like he was fishing for a penalty. Had it been given it would have been a soft one. Had that been Messi, Mane or Salah in the box they would have gone through hell and high water to stay on their feet and go for goal.

Poor little old Ellen (a tiny, very, very old lady) was miserable. She used to go to all their matches, home and away. Now she listens on Radio Norfolk, and if the Canaries win, she has a small glass of sherry. No tipple for her last night...

In spite of the strong winds and cold temperature, my husband wore his Norwich City football strip down to the village shop when he went out to get my paper. He was frozen when he got back, but he said he wanted to show solidarity!

Hi

I watched the match and thought it an excellent and exciting game.

Norwich gave Chelsea a hug shock and in my opinion I thought that Norwich was the better side in which they were very organised at the back and extremely dangerous on the breaks.

I agreed with the penalty decisions. Norwich were unlucky when they struck the post and fully deserved the excellent late goal.

Pity about the penalty. I agree that it is not a good way to decide a match.....but I can't think of a better way.

I n rugby we tried a few ways to get a decider in the few games that ended in a draw. We had a " shootout" in that we played on until one side scored. Don't think this would work for football as it would become difficult to score as the teams packed their defences.

Well done Norwich.

Cheers

Mike

Chelsea are going through a very sterile patch at the moment, very reminiscent of Liverpool this time last year - up to Christmas 2016 I thought the reds were going to win the league, then it all went pear-shaped. I like watching Chelsea, despite their Chelski tarnish. I'm disappointed with Conte this season. He needs to get a bit more discipline into his players. Would you keep picking divers? On top of that, he comes from my very favourite Italian town, Lecce in Puglia. Definitely go to Lecce before you die. The Florence of the South!

Their passing was under par last night both in pace and accuracy. If Liverpool haven't bagged a goal in the first ten minutes I start to worry. They've got to start at blistering pace, bag a goal or two and make the other team come out and take risks and subject themselves to Liverpool's counters, which are as dangerous as anybody's. They let the Swans get their feet under the table last night, get a soft goal then park the bus. I hate that kind football as it isn't giving the fans what they deserve, very negative, but with Swansea wallowing at the bottom and desperately needing the points (and the multimillions that staying up would mean), I can't blame them. That's capitalism for you!

Don't get me started on the twat Sanchez. Half a million a week? A bloody disgrace.

Hi Steve

I watched the match last night. Embarrassing to lose to the bottom club.

Your comments on the match pretty much agree with what I saw. Liverpool don't appear to have a Plan B.

I went to Turf Moor last Saturday when Man U Played Burnley, There was a good example of this there. United were completely wasting their time trying to beat the Burnley defensive tactics. So in the second half they pulled back and "Parked the Bus"" and scored with a breakaway goal. Call it ugly if you wish but they won a difficult match.

" Don't get me started on the twat Sanchez. Half a million a week? A bloody disgrace." Way of the Word today. It is an eye-watering amount but if he turns out to be the winner we think he is, it will pay for itself. I would then be a good investment.

I don't think it will enable them to catch City but next year we hope the the League will not be quite so one-sided.

Cheers

Mike

He's a bit of a sulk, though, isn't he, Mike? You're really expecting a lot...

Packing your defence all night is a very negative tactic and is definitely against the sporting spirit. Several teams, including Chelsea, thwarted even Barcelona at their peak with that tactic, the Barca of Messi, Xavi and Iniesta. Jayz, it must be a damn good tactic if even that lot can't get through. It's a time-honoured tactic used by weaker teams in away legs. Of course, if you're a Chelsea, you always have the pace and talent to mount sudden counter-attacks when your opponent starts to get flustered with the tactic and take risks, as they did to deprive Liverpool of the title a couple of seasons ago. But Swansea don't have that. Once they'd bagged that goal they hardly ever even vaguely threatened. It was very tedious watching. They were time-wasting at throw-ins and one of their players walked off painfully slowly to waste time when he was subbed. Unless you're injured, you should be carded unless you jog off. Liverpool definitely lacked edge last night but we watched a game that no-one (bar the Swansea fans), including thousands of neutrals, could have been happy with.

And you can blame Burnley for using the tactic, but the past master is Jose!

Hi Steve

" Always thought that t'Turf was a cold 'ole. "

I t certainly was the other night!! Cold wind blowing across the pitch right into the stand. Then as the wind eased a cold drizzly fog swamped the ground. United were playing in Grey strip. Difficult to see them on the far side.

The point I was trying to make about Maurinho is that he is a good tactician and can change the tactics during the game to get a result.

Remember that they have scored almost as many goals as Liverpool and conceded far fewer. And they are still the most watched team in British football!!!!!!!!.

Now of to 't pub to watch City.

Hi Steve - watched Liverpool v West Brom last night.
Liverpool were very poor IMHO - especially the defence.
These games are always tricky for the top teams. As the opponents have nothing to lose. Some strange decisions especially when the use of the new filmed action was used.

Both managers criticised it.   

Man United managed to win at a canter at Yeovil. Sanchez looked good in his first game. I am expecting something more from United when he plays with the full team - we had 10 changes from the usual side.

A consolation for Liverpool will be that they will able to concentrate more on their League position.

Hi

just going to sit down and watch Liverpool v Huddersfield.

Huddersfield are a difficult team to play.....as Man United found out some weeks ago when they beat us at Huddersfield.

Their Manager is an ex colleague and friend of Liverpool Manager Jurgen Clopp.

I will be interested in this game because we play Huddersfield shortly in the League, and we could also play them again if the beat Birmingham
in the replay of the recent draw.

Of course this will not be of any interest to Steve as they are no longer in this Competition.

I see Clopp is starting to moan about referees - he complained about how much ( little) the ref awarded for injury time in their recent game.

Of course we at Old Trafford are "experts" at this thanks to Alec Ferguson.

Liverpool did the same thing last season, though a couple of weeks earlier. It'll be a test of Klopp's mettle to get this quickly turned around. Giving Huddersfield a whack isn't a bad start. Good to see Liverpool increasing the distance from Arsenal. Swansea are becoming giant-killers!

Dunno whether refs add time on for these lengthy delays due to reviewing decisions. It stops the flow of what should be a flowing game, I know that much.

Hi Steve

Saw the Liverpool v Huddersfield game. Not a classic but " The Pool" got a deserved win. Huddersfield IMHO were very poor but you have to beat what-ever is against you.

I hope Huddersfield play as badly on Saturday when they play Man United. Mind you after last night's performance against Spurs United got blown away. I have not seen such a poor performance by United since Moyes went. We were lucky to get none.!!! Our defence that had gone for over six hours without conceding a goal and then we let one in after only 10 seconds!! Our performance was erratic and Spurs could and should have scored five or six." 'arry Kane "didn't have his shooting boots on.

There was a small consolation in that Chelsea got blasted 3-0 at home.
It's going to be interesting in the top six.

We didn't park the bus, more like a motor bike. We did create some chances but did take them. I think the second goal killed us. They were disorganised and lacking drive and initiative.

A routine, boring win for United. But the brave lads of Burnley, the archetypal hairy-arses, the team of me boyhood, never gave up against City. I thought Pep's tribute was wonderful:

Pep Guardiola has described Burnley as "the most British of teams" following the Clarets' 1-1 draw with Manchester City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

"Of course we are frustrated in terms of the result but the performance was outstanding against a Burnley side who are the most British of teams in terms of long balls and the way they play," Guardiola told Sky Sports News.

"But football is about goals. We needed to score the second, third and fourth when we had the chance. When you arrive in the last 15 minutes at Burnley 1-0, this is what can happen. I'm sad for the players because we played so well.

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is amazing. We controlled the game, but when we arrived in the last minutes at 1-0, there is danger."

Hi Steve

"A routine, boring win for United". I don't believe it was Man U's fault. And it wasn't boring for most of the crowd.

I don't think that there were any buses left in Huddersfield......they were all parked on the Huddersfield goal line.

It takes two teams to make a good game. Huddersfield did not want to play. Instead they decided to kick United's players all over the pitch....especially Sanchez. He was a marked man.....literally. They didn't have even one attempt on goal. If they continue to play like this they will go down.

The Ref had a poor game in allowing this to go unpunished.Especially one vicious foul on a young lad....and in the penalty area too.


Good luck for this afternoon, I will be watching,

THIS SHOULD BE A GREAT GAME.

Talk about a game of two halves. Just for once the cliche applies. Kane missing that first penalty was poetic justice. He dived. The second one was justified. It was all Liverpool in the first half. They were deadly except for the finish. But they went home at half-time. I do like Spurs though and I can't complain at honours even! Three cracking goals and a lot of edge-of-seat stuff. Great!

Have had another look/think about that second penalty in the cold light of YouTube. It shouldn't have been given. Lamela was fishing for it, running into Virgil's path. If there was any contact at all it was minimal and Virgil was trying to avoid it, and Lamela made a meal of it. Seems like Pochettino may have a second career as an Olympic diving coach, what with Kane, Alli and Lamela. No wonder he praised the officials for making perfect decisions. Jon Moss was very soft on Spurs in the first half too. His behaviour seemed quite unprofessional. And he didn't seem to understand the offside rule either.

Hi Steve

I agree that Lamela was looking for a penalty. But Virgil has been around long enough to spot this. I recorded the game and have viewed the incident in very slow motion. IMHO there is no doubt that he touched Lamela but I don't know what kind of touch makes the difference between being a penalty or not. Most players know about this and try to avoid any kind of contact in the area.

An example of the confusion is shown if you look at United's game against Huddersfield when a young player was completely flattened as he was charged by a defender the back in the area. He was felled by a two footed charge off the ground; This wasn't so much of tackle as an assault. No penalty was given. It strikes me that even the the referees don't know.

As for diving, it is cheating and the refs must get a grip of it. It is rife; most players do it.

It was never done before the European Leagues. These brought players of many different nationalities, many of whom were divers.

I can only recall one British player who dived - that was Franni Lee of Man City.

I think that diving should be an immediate red card not just a yellow and a kind word from the ref.

Nah then, Mike, surely you remember one of the great moments in all footie, the punch-up between Franny and Bite-Yer-Legs. Those were the days when men were men and so were half the women. We're in prima donna territory these days. When you dived in those days on those pitches you'd go in at half-time with five pounds of mud sticking to your front and another pound wrapped round the family jewels. I admit that Liverpool had the diver among divers, bite-yer-ear-off Suarez (come back, Luis, all is forgiven!), and Stevie wasn't exactly Mr Innocent. I agree. Send the bugger off, as long as you're sure. Alli was blatant, Kane not quite 100%. Red, yellow. The draw was the ultimate fair result, but who wants fair in footie!

I had been kicked on the knee and had a couple of stitches in a cut.
Before the game Nobbie came to watch. He saw my bandaged knee. He told me not to wear the bandage over the wound but to put it on the other leg !!! Said the buggers will go for that one and leave the other alone. Worked too.

Liverpool's Tommy Smith was a great player " with a cutting edge".

There were many "kickers " in those days,

Just finished watching Spurs v Arsenal. Quite a good open game to watch. I think Spurs just about deserved their 1-0 win. Like you I wanted a draw and if Lacasette (sic) hadn't missed a complete sitter right at the end.

Harry Kane scored his usual goal and Spurs created several more chances.

Arsenal looked wide open a the back and in my opinion were lucky to get away so lightly.

I will be watching City later on. Leicester are a team that could cause a surprise. (fingers crossed ).

I watch on BT Sport and Sky Sport on my TV.

My son has given me a dongle that streams life sports, but I haven't needed to use it yet. In truth I have my doubts about it.

I will be watching Both United and Liverpool tomorrow.

Just watching Ireland massacre Italy......I know there is a separate thread but I want to get something done and don't have the time

Cheers

Mike

Ps Cheese and wine went down well.

Well, Mike, today went well! Liverpool win at a canter, after having to travel south today instead of last night due to a plane glitch. Man U lost their way against a hearty and passionate hairy-arse team, and if things carry on this way it'll be Liverpool second.

Now for Porto. Roll on Wednesday!

I know. The trouble is I think he wants to go to Juventus. And unless he does a deal with Liverpool he can go on a free transfer at the end of the season. If Juve don't have to pay for him they can use the money saved to pay him big money. He's playing hard to get. He must be on good money at Liverpool and he gets picked regularly so you might have thought he'd be happy. I reckon it's about money, not football. Sign of the times.

Hi Steve

I thought I might see you after yesterday.s games.

You are quite in order to be laughing ( as you no doubt you are.)

I watched both games and I have say that Liverpool
are looking very very much like a danger to us.

We were pathetic. There did not seem to be any organisation at all. This is unlike Mourinnho teams. The defence was all over the place - strange as we have the second best defensive record in the league.

The centre backs played as though they had never met; these guys are England Internationals though it is difficult to see how.

Especially Smalling who was lucky to get away with a penalty and then for some mad reason, he performs the most obvious dive I have ever seen. It was like a pig falling of a ladder. And to rub in the salt Newcastle scored from the resulting free kick.

Having said all that we managed to miss at least 4 " dollies" . The Newcastle keeper play out of his skin preventing us scoring. It was his first game !!!

Looks like being a rare fight for the top places. We can't play that bad again..........can we.

Regards

Mike
