    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    Especially since breaking into broadcasting as a hobbit is hard.

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    That's funny, because I LOATHE Peter Drury. Not because he over-emotes, but because he always tries to come up with some pretentious pseudoliterary description that is always awful. At least Ray Hudson is halfway in on the joke.

    Gameweek 35: Money for nothing & relegation-free

    Looks likely that the title, top 4, and relegation will all be decided before the final week this year.

    Gameweek 35: Money for nothing & relegation-free

    Nice to see Palace finally realizing they need to get younger.

    Gameweek 35: Money for nothing & relegation-free

    Leicester losing today would be great news for West Ham, Liverpool, and Spurs.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    I think he's more on fringes of first-choice? He's 11th on the team in minutes, with 27 starts and 18 sub appearances in all comps. He's definitely been useful and he's only 20, so there's still a lot of growth. But he hasn't really lit it up there yet.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    They tried to get younger and and spent a ton of money on Jovic, Mendy, Vinicius, Militao, and Rodrygo but only Mendy has established himself in the first XI.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    IOW, Levy is implicitly admitting he massively screwed up in hiring Mourinho, who is none of these things.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Madrid look old and slow. Ramos is already on a yellow, now that the game is gone he's definitely getting a second one in the last few minutes, right?

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    This feels perfectly set up for a Madrid gut punch, like a cheap VAR penalty or something. You can't waste that many good chances to put a team away and get away with it.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    This is skewed a little by Jose mostly only playing Bale at home against weaker sides. Bale's goals have come against Brighton, Burnley, Palace, Southampton, and Sheffield United, all in home games.

    Gameweek 34: Pitch Invaders

    Mourinho getting rehired so quickly may also save Spurs a lot of money in severance.

    Gameweek 34: Pitch Invaders

    Sheffield United are not good but ... why couldn't Spurs have played like this all year? This is such a massive improvement.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    At least they are looking in the right places, at progressively oriented managers with experience developing players and not at another big-name retread. Ragnick would be an odd choice though because he has a front office management role at RB, a role Levy normally keeps for himself.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    Damn, I liked ten Hag. Maybe Ajax demanded more than Levy wanted to pay to let ten Hag out of his contract.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    City averaged 101 league goals the last three years; they are on page for 79 this season. City averaged 85 xG the past three years; they are on pace for 74 this season.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    I'm rooting for Pochettino. City have shifted style this year to focus more on defensive possession and less on all-out attack. It's been very effective, but it's less fun to watch. City-Cheslea has the potential to be dreadfully dull, as anyone who watched their FA Cup semifinal can...

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    Spurs actually have turned over a lot of the Poch-era squa and still have a fair amount of youngish/early-prime talent: Dele (25), Ndombele (24), Lo Celso (25), Hojbjerg (25), Winks (25), Reguilon (24), Sanchez (24), Bergwijn (23), Rodon (23), Sessegnon (20). Kane is only 27 and Son 28 -- not...

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    Please not Southgate or Martinez. I'd be ok with Rodgers or Potter. Not sure Spurs are a step down from Leicester. Leicester have been better than Spurs the last two seasons but Spurs have a lot more financial power and don't have to regularly sell their best players any more.
