|VAR Bournemouth |
at 14:12 23 Feb 2020
So Bournemouth score and they disallow their goal to bring it back for a Burnley penalty. Saints had a clear penalty at Anfield, Liverpool score and they don't bring it back for a Saints penalty. Probably Bournemouth handball but it was definitely a foul against Ings at Anfield. Double standards and clear favouritism to Liverpool.
Wouldn't dare rule out a Liverpool goal at Anfield to give opposition penalty. But they are happy to do it against other teams.

|Man City / Arsenal swathes of empty seats|
at 23:23 19 Feb 2020
Anybody saying how bad Saints fans are, take a look at the empty seats at Man City (Google it or watch the goals). It was also completely silent even after a 2 nil win. This is a team who are 2nd in the PL.
This is not a thread to down Man City at all ( I would actually prefer them to win the league above the others) , but just to point out that the PL is deteriorating at many levels and Saints fans are no different to most of the rest. Arsenal had loads of empty seats too. If a team is 2nd but the grou d is empty and silent, what hope is there for clubs like Saints?
There are wider issues - the PL will lose its fans and interest if it continues to be so uncompetitive, expensive and predictable.

|Kyle Walker Peters|
at 17:11 15 Feb 2020
He was absolutely mugged for that 2nd goal. Just seen it on TV. Terrible defending. So we get rid of Cedric to bring in Peters. Although he did the odd run, he put in a few crosses that went straight out and also defended badly I thought. Then we wonder why there so many empty seats.

The best chant of the day from the Saints fans as well as "You're just a ground full of tourists". When it is questioned as to why Liverpool sell out and we don't, well Anfield was full of tourists yesterday: Japanese, Malaysian, Easter European etc etc. Actually didn't hear many scouse accents outside the ground. They are only there because Liverpool are successful. If we were as successful as them, they would all turn up with their cameras at St Mary's.

|Ref and VAR cheating pr.. cks|
at 17:45 1 Feb 2020
At nil nil Ings was tripped. It didn't even get checked. Liverpool passed back to their keeper and it didn't get checked. Their keeper possibly handballed it and they didn't even check. Biased cheating. Absolute disgrace.

|Spurs game nearly sold out|
at 18:41 29 Jan 2020
From what I can see on the official website, the game is nearly sold out both tiers.

So Klopp is going to play the reserves in their replay and ask his assistant to take charge. I don't have much sympathy for these players earning 100k plus a week not being able to go on holiday. Everybody else only gets 4 weeks holiday for a lot less and they can retire at 35 and have as many breaks as they like then.
However, for the winter break to be set, only for games then to be played in what was supposed to be a break, seems strange.
I'm hoping that Shrewsbury can pull off a shock against Liverpool under 23s.

|Right back situation|
at 13:25 26 Jan 2020
A month ago, Ralph said we must bring in a few players, namely a right back.
Yesterday, we had to play a young centre back as a right back and he was completely out of his depth. We are now at the end of the transfer window as usual without signing anyone. Cedric we know is leaving anyway.
So buy a right back!!

Match of the day introduced tonight with Gabby mentioning that the women there had won the FA cup 5 times and Danny M just once as if to say the women is better. Anyone else find it hard to take seriously the opinions of a women talking about the mens game? Anyone else getting irritated by all these women taking over? I would much rather listen to Shearer, Le Tiss, Linekar, Benali, Merrington or whoever rather than some unknown women. Or am just an old fashioned traditionalist?

Now that goal felt like a winning goal to me. Stood in the corner right next to the Spurs fans, the corner I was in went absolutely crackers. And what a bullet of a goal it was to celebrate. Bring on the replay. Our away form is great, we are still very much in this cup.

|Empty block next to our fans at Palace|
at 20:56 21 Jan 2020
Had text from mate who is at the game saying how noisy our fans are and what a shame it is that there is a completely empty block next to our fans. What a waste of seats! We would have bought up some of them or all of them for sure. Palace haven't sold out and we could have taken more fans, so Palace lose money and we lose extra support. Are these decision makers complete idiots?

|Massive evening Tuesday |
at 15:51 19 Jan 2020
Burnley and Newcastle both getting unexpected wins this weekend. On Tuesday: Villa v Watford, Bournemouth v Brighton. We have a very tough game away at Palace Tuesday with Liverpool after that, then Burnley, also fighting for survival. We could be very close to the bottom 3 once again. Anyone else feeling a little uneasy?
