Saturday football
Brighton have won just once – against Watford – since new year, a miserable run that’s seen them drop to thirteenth. No such concerns for today’s visitors, who continue to harbour realistic title aspirations. A pretty one-sided game, you’d think. You’d be right. Away win.

A massive six-pointer that could go a long way to determining which, if either, of these two go down. A win for the hosts will give them nine games to gather the handful or so of points they’ll need to stay up. Burnley’s fate still lies in their own hands, just, but things are looking grim for Sean Dyche’s men. They may look grimmer still come the final whistle. Home win.

A draw may be the best outcome for us, but both these sides are painfully inconsistent so it’s hard to predict how this will go with any sense of probability. Spurs come into this on the back of a moral-boosting demolition of Everton and can also look to their last visit to Manchester for further encouragement. On paper, there’s little to separate them. The fence beckons. Draw.


The last few days have produced some of the best football jokes of the season. It’s anyone’s guess how current events will influence Chelsea today – it could go either way. Eddie Howe has done a great job in pulling Newcastle from rock-bottom to the lower reaches of mid-table. Has he done enough to save them from the drop? With a ten-point buffer separating them from the relegation zone, you have to assume that he has. Although the wind is behind them, a trip to Stamford Bridge remains tricky. All things considered, he can probably afford to lose. Home win.

Everton are firmly in the relegation mix. They’ll be more than grateful to have three games in hand over Leeds and Brentford, but they have to exploit that advantage if they are to survive. Wolves have lost a little momentum in the last couple of weeks, but remain tough to break down. You’d expect few goals here today. Draw.

Father Christmas pays a late visit to Elland Road. He will not appreciate that gift being returned to him unopened. Leeds have to win this, no ifs or buts. Home win.

Speaking of gifts, the Saints have a great chance to boost their ascent into the top half of the table. Ralf Hassenhutl has once again done a fabulous job of transforming his side from relegation contenders to a solid top-ten team. Home win.

This may be the meat, or vegetarian alternative, in an Andalusian sandwich, but it’s a massively important game. After a disappointing February, Villa have scored seven in March’s two games – Leeds and Southampton – and with Ings, Coutinho and Watkins all flying, they’ll look to carry forward that form. For us, Bowen misses out today. Moyes will have to focus the players’ minds on this game and this game only, which will see us move up to fourth in a best-case scenario, or fall to eighth in the worst. A tough battle is in store. Home win.

Arsenal’s transformation since earlier in the season has been remarkable. As has Leicester’s. How welcome it would be if the Foxes could sneak up and bite a north London Arse. Won’t happen though, will it? Home win.


Palace have only once finished in the top ten in their Premier League career. They’ve got a pretty good chance of doing it again this season, but any hope of points against the league leaders is likely to be a vain one. Away win.

With ten or so games left in the season, Fulham look to have wrapped up promotion and probably the title. Bournemouth are favourites for runners-up, while eight teams – including Millwall – are in the running for a play-off spot. The leaders visit second-from-bottom Barnsley in the day’s early game, while Bournemouth take on the unfortunate Derby. Huddersfield, temporarily occupying second spot, drew at West Brom last night, and Blackburn host Bristol City. Sheffield United in fifth visit Coventry, eleventh and six points behind the Blades, whose play-off hopes appear remote. But a home win would change that dramatically. Luton and QPR – sixth and seventh and separated by one point – do battle at Loftus Road tomorrow. At the bottom, it’s three out of four for the drop. But Paul Ince’s 21st-placed Reading will fancy their chances of survival with five points and one game in hand over Derby in 22nd. Don’t look away.

Re: Saturday football
For a club with the ‘quality’ players that they have and the money they’ve spent, Man Utd are bang average. They have no game plan or strategy at all.

Bruno Fernandes is also one whinging and whiney little rat-faced prick too. Every single game he’s moaning about something.

Re: Saturday football
The best bit of time wasting was their captain being subbed off. Ref ordered him off at the far side of the pitch, he pointed to the keeper and proceeded to jog slowly to him to give him the armband and then jogged slowly to the bench - basically tripled the distance of getting off the pitch. I’d have been livid if that wasn’t against us, but hilarious hearing the crowd losing it about that tonight.

Re: Saturday football
Shithousery of the highest order
The Mancs getting a thorough doing and the ref not playing ball with the usual squealing then falling for every AM stroke
That little Bruno has become an absolute CUNT, needs filling in
Regrettably I’m taking my smiles tonight, reckon we will have to overcome similar skullduggery
And in Amsterdam Benfica knocked out Haller, Darwin scores the winner - oh well, another that slipped the net eh

Re: Saturday football
Yep - enjoyed watching that tonight. Robbie Savage moaning about every decision that didn’t go Man Utd’s way was hilarious too - he’s so biased he was calling for fouls that didn’t happen. Brilliant!

Re: Saturday football
Man Utd fans seemed incensed that a referee wasnt having Bruno flopping about or giving them free kicks left right & centre.
Pleasure to watch a referee not take any nonsense
Man U OUT, Atletico Madrid into the quarter finals along with Benfica

Freakish hasn't improved Man City.

Re: Saturday football
Man City have some immensely talented players but I dont regard them as good as some of the previous Premier league teams like the Man U team with Rooney, Ronaldo & Tevez or the Arsenal team with Henry , Pires & Bergkamp because they have one (very successful) way and just bang away at it.
They make a million chances but they dont really have a truly clinical finisher who you'd trust with one chance to win you the game.
Which is why they have probably fallen short in Champions League latter stages

That said they may well buy Haaland in the summer and fix that problem quick smart.

Re: Saturday football
One upside of City dropping points is that it gives the Bin Dippers even more of an incentive when they play Arsenal this Wednesday? One of Arsenals 4 games in hand.

Even good managers forget about game changing substitutions sometimes. Pretty dumb move.

Re: Saturday football
Palace been resilient and City having one of them nights where it just won’t happen for them.

Really don’t want Jurgen and the Bin dippers to win the league - this result opens the door a bit.

Re: Saturday football
Shithousery from Palace tonight, feigning injury and time wasting, it’s becoming a blight on the game. Cunts.

Re: Saturday football
If Chelsea don't finish the season I take it all their results are wiped out?

Mike Oxsaw 12:00 Mon Mar 14
Re: Saturday football
I believe the results this weekend mean that we can not be relegated this term unless the authorities decide we're being too fucking uppity and dock us points for one of the fans wearing odd socks.

In fact, it may actually be that the lowest we can now finish is 12th, even if we don't pick up another point - but this is more driven by the fixture list of remaining matches between those currently with fewer points than us (both teams can't win such matches) than what we do, and I've only looked at one scenario (plus there are still nine games to be rescheduled).

Looks like the KO time for Spurs has been moved from 2pm to 4.30.

Re: Saturday football

I've also just seen that - absolute disgrace!

Red for Havertz and a penalty for Chalobah's "challenge"

Should also have been a red for Ayling's "tackle" in the Leeds Norwich game.

Also saw Hasenhuttl complaining about Watford players feigning head injuries - bit rich seeing how Southampton pioneered that tactic!

Sven Roeder 9:42 Sun Mar 13
Re: Saturday football
Just watched the highlights from Chelsea v Newcastle
Havertz jumps and leads with his elbow into the face of Dan Burn (6ft 7) .... then in the interview post match blames Burn for being '7 or 8 ft tall'. VAR does fuck all
Jacob Murphy gets past Chalobah who grabs his shirt , hangs on and pulls him over. Referee view is blocked. VAR does fuck all

How much longer can these incompetents last before Mike Riley and his band of clowns are all binned?

Interesting point on Sky Sports news.

Several Saudi Arabian flags flying in the Newcastle end the day after 81 executions in that country.

Re: Saturday football
You’re correct, Sven, they have changed the laws for encroachment as only taking effect if the player has some impact on the outcome.

Stuttering runs are ok if it’s still part of a fluid move before the non kicking foot is placed.
