    NFL 2019!

    Noone does behind the scenes like the NFL.
  2. Tainted but not a lot that the league can do when they have moved on. Arguably the Red Sox are hurt because Cora cheated for the Astros, but that is mitigated by him cheating in Boston too. One to keep an eye on in Carlos Beltran, now manager of the Mets. He was identified as a ringleader on the players side as an Astro and denying wrong-doing as recently as two months ago.
  3. Astros lose their GM and manager to one year suspensions. (The owner fired them afterwards.) Forfeited 1st and 2nd round draft picks for the next two years and a $5m fine. The Red Sox fired Alex Cora, who was involved in the Astros at the time and alleged Red Sox cheating the season after before the MLB have officially ruled on his case. (The league is holding back on punishment until the Red Sox investigation concludes.)
  4. Doesn't remember from game to game though.
  5. Could we throw in another variable - the Premier League has fewer players who shoot from distance - I'm thinking Lampard, Scholes and Gerrard who would regularly pot from just outside the 18 yard box? They have been replaced by players technically proficient at scoring from tight angles and close in - Aquero, Silva, Aubameyang plus as mentioned, lots of teams play a high defensive line which can be broken through for 2 and 1 on 1s. Interesting stats though.
  6. I guess us Burnley fans found out why Dyche wouldn't play him.
  7. Southampton (like Watford) were never as bad as they seemed and this Arsenal season has been coming for several years. Obviously Liverpool are the best side in the league by some distance. I don't want to sound like I'm doing them down, but Leicester are having an excellent season where four of the usual Big Six are having off years.
  8. I've just seen a still of the VAR decision. The line that "proves" Mee was offside has both Mee and a Chelsea player beyond it. (So we still can't tell!)
  9. Unlike the offside, it's a judgmental decision. Odd how the big clubs get the benefit of those even on VAR. (I'm jesting. I haven't seen it.)
  10. It is very, very Burnley to play 4-4-1-1 with 5 defenders on the bench and have one chalked off by a close VAR decision.
  11. Fourth round draw Watford or Tranmere Rovers v Wolverhampton Wanderers or Manchester United Hull City v Chelsea Southampton v Middlesbrough or Tottenham Hotspur QPR v Sheffield Wednesday Bournemouth v Arsenal or Leeds Northampton Town v Derby County Brentford v Leicester City Millwall v Sheffield United Reading or Blackpool v Cardiff City or Carlisle United West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion Burnley v Norwich City Bristol Rovers or Coventry City v Birmingham City Manchester City v Fulham Rochdale or Newcastle United v Oxford United Portsmouth v Barnsley Bristol City or Shrewsbury Town v Liverpool
  12. Watched the first episode - enjoyed it more than I thought it was, because it wasn't "isn't Japan weird?"
  13. Does that mean that it is off Premier / Freesports?
