    The thing is having the sub implicitly suggests teams know when they should substitute players, but arenít doing it because theyíd rather take the risk. Seems to be that kind of cuntery should not be indulged with a free sub (which again will advantage bigger teams) and instead there should be a stricter set of guidelines around concussions and when players canít continue.

    Thought it was an absolute screamer but quite a lucky deflection. Really does make stuff happen though, doesn't he? Top class.

    He just glides when he's running. It's beautiful to watch.

    West Ham have been pretty shit, so I'm expecting them to score in the last minute to win.

    Spurs have been trialing an instant breathalyser test which while in theory is significantly less effective than the proper one, so far has had results aligning 100%.

    Amazed other clubs havenít been doing similar.

    I suppose immediate, less effective results are better than no results. Lewis Hamilton had four in a week and still looks like hes potentially infected half his team.

    Hasn't Steve Bruce already had it or am I making that up?

    I think you've confused him for one of the lesbian prostitutes who live next door to Steve Barnes

    Newcastle game on Friday postponed. When this shit starts hitting clubs who are in Europe the calendars are going to get so damn messy.

    Dutch league have found an elegant solution to the margin of error issue in VAR offside rulings.

    @You-can-call-me-kal sounds good to me. Make the linesman make the call. Is essentially if you need to draw lines go with the linesman and if not then the linesman is right or has made a clear and obvious error.

    Hallelujah. I imagine that leads to the flag being kept down most of the time.

    Looks like Hart in goal for Sunday. That and Pepe being banned give Arsenal every chance.

    This is the least confident I have been for a very long time. Mostly form related than any more fundamental concerns (form goes out the window, my arse). Especially with a home crowd only in.

    Itís still a leveller, but my expectations are higher than usual. Kane could be out as well as Toby and Hugo though which really is significant though.

    Yeah, but historical evidence suggests Kane being out doesn't really seem to hamper Spurs :(

    I was actually starting to believe Joe Hart may be a reliable back up until Thursday. Heís clearly a good guy to have in the dressing room and fine for europa league group games, but Iíd not be too confident about him in the premier league. Iíd much rather have gazza in.

    Hopefully Kane will play, but Iíd be interested to see what he does if he is injured. Iíd love to see him throw Dele in as a bit of a curveball but thatís not really Joseís style. Would probably be moura.
