  1. Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

    His red was for a 'professional foul' or whatever it's called (ie being the last defender stopping a goal-scoring opportunity) so only a 1 match ban A red for dissent (I'm presuming aggressive swearing and use of 'C' word/calling ref a cheat, etc) is 2 games Red for dangerous tackles, violent conduct, is 3 but can be increased I think racial abuse, spitting and similar are 5 or 6 matches long as I recall.
  2. Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

    It won't be his strongest XI, but under the Covid 19 "bubble" rules currently applied in English football, 1st team squads are separate from development squads, so neither side will be using "youngsters" other than those already part of the main squads.

    The irony of your post is that Christensen is the only one of the back four NOT to make an individual mistake that has led to a goal. I get you hate him. I get you hate Lampard. But get some perspective for f***'s sake!!!

    If you look again at the article, I was quoting the headline and sub headline, that's all.

    Not sure you can accuse a broadcaster that has employed Sarah Sands, John Humphreys, Andrew Marr, Laura Kuennsberg, Andrew Neil, etc., in very senior positions "left wing"

    One of the few times I've agreed with every word Droy has posted.

    ❝The data set is not huge, so there must be caveats, but it appears that when Frank Lampard is in charge goalkeepers save fewer shots. There may be all kinds of reasons for that to do with coaching and man-management, but there is also a basic issue to do with how his sides play. Lampard teams concede a disproportionate number of two particular types of goal: crossed set plays and counterattacks. Both leave a goalkeeper exposed, both yield chances that are relatively easier for the attacking player to convert – close-range headers and one-on-ones. Not all shots are equal.❞ https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2020/sep/21/kepa-arrizabalaga-confidence-shot-way-chelsea-play-doesnt-help-him-frank-Lampard-liverpool

    Indeed!! You'd think a 'newspaper' owned by the son of an ex-KGB agent would be a bit better at hacking Abramovich's emails and really getting to the kernel of the story, wouldn't you?
