WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Saturday football
Despite a run of indifferent form, the Foxes remain in third spot and within snapping distance of second-placed Man U, whom they will overtake if they put Liverpool to the sword in today’s early kick-off. The visitors’ form is like a roller coaster that's currently on the way down. Their recent away history makes dismal reading if you’re of the red persuasion. Brendan Rodgers will see this as a near-perfect opportunity to get one over his former employers. Watch for penalties. Draw.

Burnley are eight points clear of the drop zone, but that should still be too close for Sean Dyche’s liking. Palace look like they’re settling again for mid-table safety - or obscurity, call it what you will - so there’s arguably more riding on this for the visitors for whom each point gained raises the bar higher still for those below the dotted line. Draw.

City seem to have gone through their allotted annual poor form and are setting the Premier League pace, enjoying a 10 point lead over the reigning champions and a five point advantage over their neighbours in second place. With a game in hand over both. Meanwhile, Spurs – whose cock crowed rather loudly during a brief ascent to the summit – show no signs of halting their slide down the table and look to remain on course for a mid-table finish. Which will please their fans greatly. Home win.

With games in hand, a top five/six finish is still well withing Villa’s grasp. Seagulls are flying higher than most people probably imagined at the start of the season and they should end the year comfortably above the drop zone if they can keep accumulating points. Draw.


“We want to go for the FA Cup,” says Ralph Hassenhuttl. And a quarter-final tie with Bournemouth is their reward for beating today’s opponents in their midweek cup game. Can the Saints repeat that at home, in the league, today? Yes, has to be the answer. The trickier question is will they? NFI. Draw.

Is West Brom one gig too far for Big Sam? It certainly looks that way. He said in midweek that his side will have to beat one of the top teams to stay up (not to mention several non-top teams).

One of the English top flight’s classic games. At least, it used to be. Today’s sides may be pale imitations of their 1970s’ equivalents, but that arguably makes for an interesting battle between high energy and considered strategy. Should be a good watch. Home win.

Fulham look doomed, but they’ve become hard to beat as we recently discovered. Everton have games in hand on the teams above them and a win today will propel them above us into fifth spot. Home win.


It takes a mighty optimist believe that the Blades are now playing for anything other than pride. To be fair, they can indeed be proud of some recent performances – not least a narrow defeat to Chelsea last time out – after a horrific start to the season that virtually sent them down. So they won’t be easy opponents. We’ll have to be at our sharpest, or close to it, to bag the points. Which we will be. Home win.

The start to Thomas Tuchel’s reign at Stamford Bridge has been quietly effective. No massive wins, just a steady accumulation of points that’s seen them climb back up the table. If it wasn’t for the sheer uselessness of the bottom three, the Barcodes would be in danger. Should be routine for Chelsea. Home win.



Away win.

You expect a woman to talk LESS!

Have you even ever met a woman?

Re: Saturday football
I've known Martin Tyler for some time; decent bloke, excellent commentator. He talks about the value a 'summariser' adds, to fill in his gaps due to lack of playing experience.

How does a woman with no PL experience fill in gaps?

I'm not sure where you looked but according to Wikki her career spanned 12 years, ending in 2009, and she scored over 200 goals.

That's a lot more football experience than most commentators.

Neil Redfearn....

I used to be a steward at Fellows Park Walsall.

About 1988, Walsall vs Oldham, 90th minute.

Ball rolls out and I went to get it,
NR” pass the ball you black bastard”

BLM would’ve been all over that now.

Re: Saturday football
Luckily I avoided it but just thought I’d google Lucy Ward and her football credentials are poor.

Played 100 times for Leeds 20 years ago, partner of Neil Redfearn.

Not sure what makes her and expert?

Sven Roeder 11:56 Fri Feb 19
Re: Saturday football
Watched the last half hour and Leeds had 5 excellent chances (incl a goal that was inches offside) and were beaten by a goal that bounced in off the keepers back.

Steve McMANAMAN's hair in the wind was amusing. Ken DODD's love child?
As said female commentator proving the Japanese Olympic guy's point. Or getting paid by the word

Watched M'bappe last night & Haaland tonight, two fantastic young strikers
Pleasure to watch strikers playing with pace & skill ... no diving, no playacting for pens and no trying to injure defenders by tunnelling under them when they are jumping for the ball.

Re: Saturday football
It wasn’t long ago that Ancelotti was the messiah and Everton were going to be challenging for the title.

Bang average side, just think they chose him over Moyes 😄😄
