  1. Sounds a bit like us in reverse from last season tbf.
  2. Probably just so you know what it's supposed to taste like before you buy it.
  3. 88th minute penalty after a BS dive. 1-0 Odds on.
  4. I've heard that ~400 stat mentioned before too, but you're right to think it sounds low, because while it was likely pulled from an official source, the number probably isn't describing what you might expect. It will be referring to the number of people who have died purely of Covid-19 without any other health conditions existing at the time of death. That might sound the same as dying without pre-existing conditions, but considering that the virus almost always causes some form of respiratory condition before it manages to kill you, these cases (which are the vast majority) would
  5. I didn't see the game so can't speak on what everyone is raving about re: Shaw, but it comes across as being a bit reactionary to be honest. He's had a good few games and apparently a great one today (worth keeping in mind that it was League 2 opposition though), but it sounds like some are offering him the keys to Hillsborough already. Remember when we gave Dawson a bumper 4 year contract after a few good games? Almost everyone seemed happy about it at the time, but I'm sure many are questioning that decision now.
  6. I think/hope this is only an FA Cup requirement to use academy players if available to fill out the squad. They really don't want these games abandoned as it would really mess up the schedule for everyone else. League games should still be our right to call off if we don't feel like we can field enough players, but I recall something about not being allowed to abandon 3 games in a row without risk of points deductions.
  7. I thought Penney looked very promising in pre-season, but he has been a disappointment so far when it comes to the league. When he came on the other day all I saw him do was give the ball away. Hopefully he does kick on and force himself into the team through good performances in training and on the pitch. I particularly liked the look of his corner taking and he puts in a much better cross than I've seen from any of our other players. I expected to see more of him under Pulis because of that.
  8. I think the outrage you refer to is targeted at the people abusing her on the back of Leeds' tweet, not the tweet itself. There's some merit in discussing whether too much is being made of the club singling out her comments, but that's obviously not the main issue here. It was just the catalyst that gave some morons the idea to show the world how moronic they are.
  9. Just noticed that Burnley only have one day between having to play away at Leeds on Sunday and then United on Tuesday. If Wilder can't get 3 points with that gift from the scheduling gods then they're surely doomed.
  10. This probably stems from Nixon's tweet I imagine. Pulis' post-match interview doesn't suggest he's about to walk, since he talked about what he needs to do. Unless something happened between then and when Nixon tweeted, which seems unlikely.
  11. Interesting stat. I remember United fans berating Wilder and the club for hiring him after he started out his reign with 1 point from 12 in League One, and also getting knocked out of the cup by Crewe. They thought he was out of his depth and wanted him gone. It likely takes time for the players to begin trusting the methods of these 'hard nosed' style managers, or for the manager to root out the players he can't work with. Hopefully once Tony has earned their respect we'll start to see them going all out for him (and us). Of course you could say they should be doing th
