The exciting scenario in the Prem now is Man City win tonight, but lose to West Ham at week-end then Liverpool go to Southampton and win by enough goals to put both teams level on Goal difference and Goals scored and goals concedeed (Man City let in 3 in their two games and Liverpool keep two clean sheets).

 

Final day  - if both teams are winning then it becomes who wins by the biggest margin

A final day shoot-out would be incredible. Klopp and Pep both deploying rush keepers.

 

Forza West Ham, the true king makers.

you can switch up until U21 I think. If you go full international then you can’t. 
 

but you can also apply after 5 years residency if it start before the age of 23. They mooted Manuel Almunia switching to England at some point in the past.

You can play something like 3 games or fewer now and still switch, it used to be something a player could appeal to do (I think that's what Zaha did?) but they implemented an rule on it not too far back. Steven Caulker, for example, plays for Sierra Leone now.

Provided you were under 21 when the games were played, and they weren't in a finals tournament.

Haha so he does. I remember when there were talks about him playing for Scotland. So in the end neither Scotland nor England wanted him so third choice Sierra Leone it is

"Rob Edwards: Watford appoint former Forest Green boss as manager for 2022-23"

 

Thats a bit optimistic from the BBC, surely should read "as first of several managers for 2022-23 season"

Wolves tonight I reckon hold firm until about 86 minutes when Coady misses a glorious chance from a corner only for City to score via a deflected Fernandinho shot as he gets his Kompany moment.

Next round in the Swiss Challenge league today. Aarau took the lead yesterday, with 62 points, having played a game more than us. Winterthur drew, so they are on 59 points

We/Schaffhausen played away against FcThun and went 0-1 down in the 20' - only to score 2 minutes later and then going on winning 5-2 in the end! 

So we're top of the league again. 

 

1. FC Schaffhausen +24goals  62points

2. FC Aarau +20g 62p

3. FC Winterthur +24g 59p

 

There are two games to go. 

 

This Saturday, we'll be playing Aarau at home. It's going to be great!

 

It's also going to be huge. Capacity is 8222 - as of this afternoon, 5700 tickets have already been sold (including 1200 to away supporters). Usually, we have around 900 people in the stadium 🙂

Zaha never played in a competitive fixture, so there were no barriers to him switching.

Borussia Moenchengladbach are playing Ukraine in a friendly, with the proceeds going to those affected by the war.

 

The Ukraine side is made up of domestic players, given others are still playing for their clubs.

 

The excellently named (well, in print, anyway) Irish U21 player Conor Noß scored for Gladbach, equalising Mudryk's opener.

Leeds are gone, by the last game they probably wont be able to field a full 11 at the rate they’re getting sent off and injured :o 

 

Given we're currently missing both first choice centre backs and our second and third choice strikers, it's going to come down to who can nick a point from somewhere.

I see the VAR blind spot when it comes to City conceding penalties is still going strong.

If you want a laugh, take a look at the penalty City got against us at their place this season.

Everton are so lucky to have Leeds in their current form. They were absolutely abysmal against Watford tonight, pretty much all of our half-decent players were out 'injured' and a fair chunk of our fans couldn't even be arsed to turn up - we were there for the taking.
