    You mean other than the Salah and Firmino 1v1s that were missed, and the great saves Gunn made on the Mane header and Robertson shot? They were outplayed in the first half, but to say that they were lucky to win is a stretch...

    Tied for the Golden Boot last year with no penalties and is already one of the best scorers for the club in Europe.

    High pressing, high intensity, and compact blocks against the top teams, which usually works decently. Against smaller sides his tactics are so just inconsistent and usually pretty ineffective. He does not have a clear effective way of playing that he sticks to against weaker opposition. He wants to play out the back and play low cutbacks but besides that he doesn’t stick to anything at all every game.

    You have to understand who you’re talking to. If you’re going to discuss anything hockey or soccer in general, you’ll be fine. If you’re going to discuss anything Arsenal or related to Swedish hockey, all his logical analysis is replaced by emotional analysis. He’s become a meme around here.

    The clearest penalty not called. Oliver looking straight at Lamela too.

    We could really use Lucas. He'd be such a threat on the counter.

    I haven't yet seen the highlights, so I'll hang fire on any praise. I'll be interested to see whether his hat-trick was better than the one Johan Elmander scored against NUFC in 2010/11 (likely not, on the presumption that all things Swedish tend to compare favourably to their Finnish equivalents :naughty:).

    I hear Pukki also made a goal-saving challenge that was every bit as important in the context of the game.

    What I can safely say at this stage is that in 2019 under Rafa Benitez Newcastle United had only conceded three goals in a league game once - and that in their end of season, letting-your-hair-down shootout at home to Liverpool.

    You would think city would stop spending a billion dollars on full backs and buy a partner for Laporte

    I think they're still hopeful Stones can work out.

    KdB is unbelievable.

    Stones would be starting today but he picked up a knock this week.
