Re: Today's footie 26/9/20

BHA definitely been the more cohesive team in the 1st half. Fernandes has generally had a poor game (giving the ball away a few times, conceding a pen, getting booked) but has whipped in a couple of very nice inswingers from the left (including for the equaliser). Pogba not done much and De Gea stil...

Re: Today's footie 20/9.20

I love watching these clubs who think it is clever to pass it out from the keeper, and then cock it up. Why do they do it? There's nearly always one (or even two) weak links in the back players re ball control/passing ability. Yet, somehow, these teams still want to do this. I wonder if an analysis...
