Baggies are nothing but a yoyo team.

Hiring Allardyce is a ridiculous loser move.

Spurs have been pretty gross for all but four seconds of this game.

That's not a performance of a league leader playing against the champ. Hell, Everton put in a better performance when they were top.

I hate José so much. My least favorite coach in any sport, and that really means something coming from a liberal Alabama fan.

As a Spurs fan, I comfort myself by remembering that the team was in 14th place a year ago this week.

But it's a grim style of soccer that even when they win is often not very satisfying. I'll take the improvement in the record, but really can't stand the guy.

After watching Tottenham: All or Nothing on Amazon, I came away liking him a bit. Just a bit. I loved him on Special One TV. And as much as I love Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, I got a bit of enjoyment watching him tweak Wenger. Not his first run at Chelsea, fully hated him then, but when he came back, I saw his gamesmanship for what it was, and kind of got a kick seeing how Arsene took the bait every time. I also grew tired of Arsene's whiny playing the victim at every call that went against Arsenal and when Arsenal was gifted a call or non-call, always responding with "well, I did not see the play, so I can not say if it was a missed call."

De Bruyne just made a pass I don’t understand from a physical movement standpoint.

So, am I given to understand CP only allowed 8 SOG against Liverpool, that's alright! Close game then?

League Cup, not EPL, but Man U have been all over Everton in the first 12 minutes of their QF match today. 5 Man U corners in the first 10 minutes.

I want everyone to know I predicted (to Mrs. Serrano) a 3-0 result in the Arsenal-Chelsea match. And so far I’m half-right.

Because of Hector’s knee, I’m now completely incorrect. Still very surprised with this result.

Good for Mikel, and fuck Chelscum, but I don't enjoy Pulisic not scoring a hattrick every game.

I've got minimum wagers ($20) on both them and Southampton to win the Prem. Very unlikely, but big potential payout.

On one hand, I feel vindicated in my belief in Stones. On the other, I know I don’t know shit and it was just personal affinity.

Everton got their 9th win in their 15th game today. The last time they won 9 times within the first 15 games was in 2004-05. Here are some of the people who scored goals in Everton games that season (for or against):

Dennis Bergkamp
Duncan Ferguson
Lee Carsley
Shola Ameobi
Brian McBride
Robbie Keane
Eider Gudjohnsen
Robbie Fowler

That’s why I think the Ole Out stuff is both laughable and absolutely correct. The manager is everything, but also is really hard to find. Hands off of Heinze.



EDIT: Sorry, I read that wrong. Ameobi got a red.

I am in total shock. Arsenal winning is a Boxing Day miracle. I had to laugh as all the graph lines come on the screen to analyze the VAR call. Is the line Tammy's foot or Hector's knee? Then when they gave Chelsea a PK, I thought Arsenal were going to blow it. Pretty sure that is Arsenal's first pk save in the EPL in many years. I know Cech went years without saving one, not sure if anyone else has.

I can't read the name Ameobi without hearing puppet Wenger's voice saying it (Special One TV).

Me either. S1TV tweeted again a few days ago for the first time (at least as far as I remember) in a long time.

Ever seen a team attempt to sit on a 1-0 lead for 90 minutes?

I just did.

Nope, and Big Sam calling for a "circuit breaker", which I gather means to stop the season for a bit, although my interpretation of that phrase could be shambolic.
