Real shame to see Stoke City struggling.

Said nobody ever.
I don't usually like to revel in a clubs demise, but I'll make an exception for Stoke.

Also, Jack Grealish is absolutely shit. Gutted Spurs didn't blow a load on him.

Yep same.

Villa are idiots for not selling him. £30m they could have got.

The c*nt thinks he's George Best wearing his socks round his ankles. Callum Best is probably a better footballer than Grealish. One of the most overrated players I've ever seen. I wouldn't lose any sleep if he got his shins broke.

Looking like a 0-0 or a tight Leeds win. Both teams are set up well in defense, they conceded total of 6 goals in 6 matches.

Graham Potter is doing an outstanding job at Swansea.

He's had to bring in young, local talent out of necessity because of the owners/board, but he's cut from the same cloth as Martinez, Rodgers and Laudrup in terms of style and outlook.  They did brilliantly to win away at Millwall tonight, despite going down to ten men in the 5th minute and falling behind.

The club is in a bit of a shambles but Potter looks the real deal.

Some good young talent on view at Elland Road - on both teams. Sergi Canos getting a regular start for Brentford. Chris Mepham is an interesting young defender for them, he’s had a rapid rise from obscurity, and looks like he can step up again.

The game (like any game really) could do without the constant slagging off of players from Andy fucking Hinchcliffe - I’ve had to mute the sound because it’s just a relentless “should have done this not that” stream of consciousness rather than a balanced analysis.

Used to work for a Nottingham based company and almost all the Forest fans I knew revelled in us being bad at that time and to a man we’re up. United’s arse. So fuck em.

Agree they are an old school proper club and belong back up there, I’ve just allowed personal prejudices to take over. :D
