    Fulham are improving still, then.

    Good to hear pundits talking about a team dropping too many points from winning positions, and it isn’t Saints.
    Spurs on 10 points dropped this season, same as us, Liverpool have dropped 8.

    We also held a lead successfully in our last game for 95 minutes if my maths and memory is correct. :)

    Would hate to be a Spurs fan. They go 1-0 up and defend. Same as the Wolves game where they conceded late.

    The game passed Son by today. No creativity in that side.

    Have to say that I enjoy the after game chat on Amazon as it generally stays on topic and doesn’t get hijacked by switching to talk about the “big” teams that are playing tomorrow or played yesterday etc.

    I don’t get what the point of Bale is, if you just leave him on the bench in a game like that. Unless his time is done.

    Christ almighty. He was such a prospect but he's a failed EPL footballer soon to be failed youtuber. Quite pathetic. Driving around in a Lambo which he gets paid off by Saints for (not) playing football for other clubs. And he's so uninteresting - plays FiFa - whoop de effing doo

    Interesting comments from Clattenberg regarding bias towards United. @tomw24

    Oops sorry I forgot - https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ma...n-united-liverpool-klopp-penalty-19622054.amp



    "He does not like losing, he never has. He gets prickly. But he is wrong to suggest there is an aura around United that sees them given favourable decisions. There used to be when Fergie was there, but that has eased massively since he left."

    "I am the only referee to give three penalties to the opposition at Old Trafford, and that was for Liverpool, of all teams, in 2014.

    "But David Moyes was manager — I'm not sure that would have happened when Fergie was there!"

    Reading the article I don't think there's an implication of bias. Referees are human. They read the papers, watch TV etc. Ferguson used every inch of his position with the media to push his agenda with referees across. A lot of what he said you wouldn't get away with now. It's human nature to sometimes second guess yourself so Ferguson played on that in his interviews. I can tell you now referees do not favour teams when they go out onto a pitch. It's red vs blue as far as we're concerned. But sometimes you subconsciously start giving more decisions to one team over the other. It could be for various reasons - if a team start diving or look for soft fouls referees will just ignore them and then when they are genuinely fouled there's less chance it will be given as the referee can't be sure if he dived or not.

    A soft foul is still a foul whatever has happend previously during the game. But then you won't give a genuine foul because you perceived a player of diving previously, but you say you cant be sure if hes dived or not. That makes no sense.[/QUOTE]
