Burnley a team of players who have stuck together and been moulded into a team. Nothing spectacular but consistently good enough to comfortably win promotion. MM has done one season of that turning relegation fodder into upper-mid-table.
Sky coverage annoyed me a little.
Nouble pronounced as if the final e had an acute accent on it. The round-up "The play-offs now out of Ipswich's reach barring an absolute miracle." What would that miracle involve? Brighton being docked points?
The Peters thread reminded me I was wondering what happened to him after he left.
Just looked it up to see he made his debut a week ago yesterday off the bench for Maccabi Haifa on loan from Austria Wien. They should be about to kick off in their next match but I can't quickly find any team news. The past two seasons he spent in Russia where he scored 14 goals in 35 games before ending his contract with the club.
I haven't heard or seen any question over it but when Janusaj crosses, Valencia is clearly offside and is the likely recipient of the cross. The defender has to head the ball under a little pressure from him. The defensive header leads immediately to the shot which is parried to Valencia who scores. Is this seen as second phase? Even if it is, shouldn't the fact Valencia pressurised the defender from an offside position have meant play should have been stopped for offside there?
