    The PL is not rigged for team A to win and team B to be penalized like the Serie A is. It's dynamic and it's only occurring on rare situations. There's no monetary benefit to hand the league to a particular team, but there is one to create a race or a fairytale story.

    With proper refereeing and if Mahrez wasn't retarted to take penalty duties off Gabriel Jesus Man City would be already ahead of Liverpool.
    Not sure how it fully adds up, but Liverpool also scored a second goal away vs. Arsenal which was disallowed for incorrect offside and in the last game should have had a penalty on Keita and I believe a red for Maguire who later scored the equalizing goal.

    A lot of the EPL refs look too old and out of shape to be able to keep up.

    Last time there was a "race" in PL was in 2013-14 between City and Liverpool.

    Didn't get the gist of it.

    Apart from last season, when was the last time you knew the PL champion from February?

    There's no league in football that's clean. Not with the sums of money involved. The methods and incentives of those who keep things dirty are not the same.

    So in the end what matters is that football is fun to watch.

    If you're a casual couch potato fan, yes, that'd be the only thing that matters.

    If it isn't clean, can it be fun though? Certainly not for me, knowing that there is something fishy would be a total downer for me, whatever sport I am watching.

    If I want to watch something with a predetermined ending, I watch a movie
    My username has nothing to do with the player of loserpool fc, it is just a reference to an Italian novel.

    Yeah but only watching a shady league that is also boring doesn't make you a football connoisseur.

    Apparently an upcoming rule will make all handballs used to directly score illegal, even unintentional ones.

    They should make changes. They should also make sure handball that leads to assist or goal in the same event should be cancelled.

    ManCity passing is out of this world. I don't remember even Arsenal ever passing it so well, they can basically pass it into goal with the way they are playing.

    I see their management learned nothing from the mou debacle!
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?

    Not sure what you mean by that. He should have been released for his injury problems but I think Smalling will be sold in the summer. Whatever we have to sell at least 2 CBs and sign one more.

    Solskjaer won manager of the month, first time ManUtd manager won this award since SAF won it in 2012-13 season.

    Exactly that he should have been released and you give him a 4 year extension. Like you said he s been injured a lot and when he played he did not look like Manu material, so why extend him? Especially if you guys are not even sure who is gonna coach you next season!
    And i m not doubting that he can be a good squad player especially since i think i saw him play dm and right back at times and he did not to bad there.

    Then again i dont know how your squad planing looks like and what goes on behind the scenes. But to me it just seems like a weird moment to extend a player like jones at this point in time. Especially since i dont think if they would have waited till the end of the season that Jones would have told Manu to fuck off.
