TFF chit chat 26th and 27th December

Post by morganb » 25 Dec 2018, 18:39

WEDNESDAY 26TH DECEMBER

Fulham 12:30 Wolves

Boxing Day's early match sees a clash between two teams that this time last year were still in the Championship. Fulham are looking like they might be back there next year as they currently lie at the foot of the table. Wolves are just in the top ten and are probably favourites today.

Burnley 15:00 Everton

The first of the 3pm games features lowly Burnley against a mid-table Everton team who have the dynamic duo of Richarlison and Siggy (featuring his spiders). If Burnley want to stay up they will need to turn Turf Moor back into a fortress.

Crystal Palace 15:00 Cardiff

Palace caused one the shocks of the weekend by beating Man City on their own turf, Zaha is off the boil but Milivojevic is in fine form. Cardiff on the other hand were drubbed by Man Utd. Therefore this should be a comfortable win for Crystal Palace.

Leicester 15:00 Man City

The Foxes are coming into this game off the back of a shock win against Chelsea, a Jamie Vardy winner no less. City themselves suffered a shock home defeat against Palace (see above). Pep's men will be looking for nothing less than a win today.

Liverpool 15:00 Newcastle

Top of the table Liverpool welcome Newcastle to Anfield. Liverpool are the current form team in the division and ex-boss Rafa will probably be looking at damage limitation today. Will Klippety be doing a bit of squad rotation bearing in mind fixtures come think and fast at this time of year?

Man Utd 15:00 Huddersfield

OGS looks to have revitalised a Manchester United side that were frankly failing under Jose. Uddersfield have been poor this season and will need to be in top form today to get anything from this game. Expect United to be rampant again.

Tottenham 15:00 Bournemouth

Spurs are still playing their home games at Wembley and today Bournemouth are the visitors. Alli went off at half-time on Sunday and could be a doubt for today. Luckily Kane continues to blow the doors off though. Bournemouth rested Fraser last time out but Brooks has stepped up recently.

Brighton 17:15 Arsenal

The late afternoon fixture has Arsenal travelling back down to the South Coast, this time to take on Brighton at the Am Ex. Arsenal were one of the few top-six teams to win at the weekend with Aubameyang in good form. Brighton meanwhile lost out to Bournemouth.

Watford 19:30 Chelsea

The evening match features the Watford rollercoaster against Chelsea. Watford had a surprising victory away to the Hammers on Saturday. Chelsea lost at home to Leicester. Hazard is probably still the standout player in this one.


THURSDAY 27TH DECEMBER

Southampton 19:45 West Ham

The solitary Thursday game features a revitalised Southampton team, now managed by David Hasselhoff, taking on a visiting West Ham team that were rocked at the weekend by a defeat to Watford. On paper the Hammers should win, but this game is played on grass not paper!

After the excesses of yesterday can we all manage 4 flanges today?

Could be lots of points at 3pm but who to sell? Won't be able to afford much if I only sell all my early kick off Wolves players (and Fulham of course).

I have my fair share too sadly. Not much worth doing I don’t think albeit, Walker could go as he has on my watch list anyway.

Richarlison went off in the 75th minute in the Spurs game. I wonder if this is more than just rotation?

Missed team news and kick-off otherwise I would have brought a couple of TAA's in. Let's hope those that I left in get a clean sheet and a goal. :)

2-0 Liverpool

Only listening to commentary but no KCs so far I think.
1-0 Lovren, volley from clearance
2-0 Salah, pen after he was brought down

Sounds like Walker and Peters have each got 3 KCs for Spurs

3-0 Shaqiri (Alexander, Arnold, Henderson?)
4-0 Fabinho (Salah, +corner taker I think?)

Class is permanent, Pogba being bothered to play is temporary

Maybe we should just get a load of Spurs players?

The way City are playing I'll be getting some Saints in for the bonus game tomorrow!

PS Is there a 1000+ brag thread? Crossed that line very easily today with half the league season and all of the Cup to go. Never really kept a tally of my points totals, have I ever scored 2000pts in a season before?

I live in Dubai and I was just watching the highlights of the 3pm kick offs.

Richard Keys is adamant that Salah will receive a ban for simulation for the penalty.

After watching the replay he does go down fairly easy but I don’t think he will receive anything

Not seen it but he was touched/held wasn't he?? - sounded debatable whether it was sufficient to be a 'foul' (I was listening to biased Liverpool commentators who said it was a foul, albeit a soft one) but he'll never get a ban for going down easily when illegally touched, whatever a disgraced, dinosaur Man U fan may think.

Me too with my top 4. My points total does feel higher this year but I’m making zero ground up so it must be the same for all! :lol:
