Yes. We’ll drop precisely three points when our kids team loses to Villa.


Not that the 1st team would have done much better...
Villa and Leeds both get heaps of praise from pundits but both are beatable and inconsistent. They both lose almost every other game (Villa lost 4/9 and Leeds lost 4/10. They're generally either excellent or a bit s****. We're the same in that we've also lost 4/10, difference is we're generally crap to watch most games but other than that there's not much at all between the three teams and we'll all be around about the same position come the end of the season.

Edit: that's not to say I think we'd go to Villa and win, just that they're not exactly unbeatable. Brighton just beat them.
Brighton also beat us.

Yep, which shows we're really no different to Villa!

PL will tell us to f*** off. But if Liverpool went to them asking to postpone because they only had Salah, Mane and Firmino available but Jota was out, they'd postpone their next five matches or possibly even award them the points there and then.

As someone mentioned earlier, Ashley isn't exactly flavour of the month at the PL so I doubt the PL will give any leeway whatsoever.

Shame we haven't got someone like Man C or Liverpool as I'd be like just give them the points and don't bother rearranging the game as we'd get nothing from it anyway.

Unfortunately against both Bruce will inevitably setup and deploy scared tactics based on the occasions they look table-topping capable, rather than what it takes to actually beat them

Are they saying it's as soon as Wednesday!? Assumed would be Jan or Feb once we're both out the FA Cup!

Nah nothing has been mentioned, there is/was a tiny chance that it could be moved to midweek I guess but very unlikely.

Just pencil in the date of the FA cup 4th round and we can play then!

Training ground re-opens today so Saturday's game should be on.

Some players still observing self-isolation protocol but no names.

Great. The players can go back to doing whatever "training" consists of.

We have some high tech training apparatus such as cones. They can run in circles around those.

Did he say we were still missing 5? Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo, Gillespie? Probably Dummett. Or even Anderson maybe?

Could be ASM but I'm sure somebody said he was spotted in town the other day.
