    Just a quick look at the Championship as well.

    Norwich, Leeds, West Brom, Middlesborough and Nottingham Forest are the top 5 after 20 matches, and those first three have to be the early favorites to fight it out for the two automatic promotion spots. They've been class all season while most everybody else has been all over the place in terms of form. But nobody's running away like Wolves did last season and it's a wide open race for the top 6.

    Catching up on other fairly recent former Premiere League clubs
    Aston Villa are riding a suddenly hot Tammy Abraham to get back into the playoff mix, but there's noise that Chelsea might recall him from his loan in January. Swansea, QPR and Stoke are literally holding up the middle of the table, while Hull is floating juuuusssttt above the relegation zone. I kind of hope Leeds hold onto their momentum. It would be nice to see the lillywhites back in the Prem.

    So. We pull a snow day here on a Sunday and the only Premiere League game on the slate is freaking Newcastle and Wolves .... and the one American involved got a straight red, largely due to his own ineptitude. I mean ... ugh. 2-1 to Wolves ... some decent plays not he goals, but otherwise fairly dire.

    I lost power right after Perez scored, so I missed all the fun.

    Liverpool top of the table. Go figure.

    City need to find the hunger in the big games. It's gotten too easy for them against the lower level squads. They didn't look to have that extra level versus Chelsea. They'll probably still win it but they need to maintain that sense of urgency.

    Yeah ... Pep has quietly talked with some media about bringing in a couple of guys in the January window simply to provide some competition for his starting 11. Not a bad idea, really.

    Hassenhuttl's [sp] reaction after the Soton win was princess. Great to see that kind of passion.

    I hated it. I hated the way Leno misplayed the cross to Austin even more.

    FWIW, I wasn't trolling. With Hugo's penchant for misadventure, that would be terrible karma. And really, anybody but Austin. It was just that after watching Burnley timewaste a good half hour of the game away (three yellow cards for it were nowhere near enough) it was nice to see a squad in a dire situation get rewarded for actually playing the game.

    I didnít think you were trolling. Since it was behind the paywall, I didnít see it, only the highlights. I didnít see the Spurs match but it sounds like Dyche is back to his pre-2017 mode. It was great to see new blood in the European spots but that last thing the Prem needs is another Tony Freaking Pulis to bleed all the joy out of a match.

    And objectively, itís great that a team got rewarded for attacking late in the match. I just wish it was against someone else.
