A few weeks ago Villa were staring relegation in the eye. Today they whipped the defending champs 7-2. 2020 continues to surprise.

Yeah, minutes from probably selling a cut price Grealish and three games later he's added probably 30 Million to his price tag. Also lucky that Brentford blew an automatic promotion and had to break up their high scoring BMW, and swooped for the W. That's another 30 million increase in one game! You'd probably be doing quite well in our FF team right now. And it's always nice to see the runaway champions get thumped. :) Van Dijk's price has dropped by 30 million. Thought he was overrated.

That Villa win has to be the equal of humble Sunderland beating the mighty Leeds for being satisfyingly shocking.

Did you realise that James Acaster had joined Leicester?

I did notice that Newcastle signed Wilson & Fraser and Everton have signed Godfrey. Just waiting for Sponge to make his debut now.

WTF does all this mean, AND more to the point, WHY?

"Expected goals (xG) measures the quality of a shot based on several variables such as assist type, shot angle and distance from goal, whether it was a headed shot and whether it was defined as a big chance."

I've been confused by that for over a year.

It actually means Bollocks.

The new Plough Lane stadium opens its doors tonight (or would do if anyone was allowed to go through them).

I would've loved to be there for the first match. I will get down there as soon as I can.

Saw it a few years ago - coming up on Talking Pictures TV, Sat. 14/11 at 1.40pm, and a double delight for football fans who like a good murder film - "The Arsenal Stadium Mystery" from 1939, which is quite good for a pre war film, which has a murder which takes place during a match between Arsenal and The Trojans (actually Brentford). I seem to remember that the victim was one of the footballers who collapses on the field and then I think there is another murder.

Bit different and well worth a look.

Yes - I seem to remember seeing it too some years ago but not like you when it first came out.
