    Frank de Boer sacked. He was brought in to supposedly instill a total football philosophy in the club. 4 matches later he's gone. Parish pressed the abort way too soon.
    The fixtures list isn't good news for Woy. They could realistically have 0 points in 8 matches. Are they going to get a new manager again then?

      We've gone from conceding 4 a game to not conceding any.

      Shame about the whole not scoring goals thing.

        Didn't see that result coming. Seems we did what your lot did to us at Carrow Road a couple of years ago.

        5 league clean sheets in a row, think that's a record for us.

          Palace are going to break a few records this season.

          Yeah, we were hopeless in that game. No chance of us breaking down a team after they've gone one up. We actually looked much worse in the 2-2 at Brentford a few days later though, we got away with a point due to Brentford being really terrible themselves. Hopefully we've managed to push the reset button over the international break.

          Do you want Howson back by the way? please say yes

            Surprised to see him not performing. Only spells I really remember him being poor here were when he was stifled playing a defensive role or shunted our onto the right wing (weird couple of months). We absolutely lack a runner from the middle so a player like Howson would be Ideal.

            Would have been offering James Husband back a month ago, not so sure now. Taken a bit of time to settle in but he's looked more than capable in his last few appearances.

                Maybe not. They're now 25/1 to beat Derby's goal record from that season. Hard to make such a prediction at such a stage, but I think we will have a better idea in 6-8 weeks.

                Well looks like Palace might be just fine after all. Very surprising win.

                I wonder when Conte will try to get rid of Batshuayi, always avoids starting him and then when he does, he hauls him off before an hour as the team lose.

                  Arsenal have turned into mid-table mediocrity, it's tragic.

                  Just a smidge of decent enough players that carry them to a Europe tournament.

                    9 games unbeaten. 5 away wins in the spin. Just made it 9 local derby games unbeaten too. Weird run of form.

                    Will probably make it 10 unbeaten when we go to Arsenal on Tuesday night too.

                      MIDSEASON PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

                      We're halfway into the season, and already there's been major action. Of course, that's to be expected with the NFL's ever changing nature. I've come here to discuss with you guys, what are your midseason playoff predictions based off the games we've seen?

                      NFC
                      WEST: Los Angeles Rams
                      I'm picking the Rams to win this division based of how well they've been playing and the significant difference in the quality of play on both sides of the ball when compared to last years 4-12 record. They sure put on a good show shredding my poor Cardinals. With Jared Goff playing efficiently and a tough as nails defense, they'll be a tough opponent for anyone.

                      SOUTH: Atlanta Falcons
                      It can go without saying that they're the better team in the NFC South. Despite the fact that the teams now lost three in a row, I still think they have the edge over their inconsistent competitors in The Panthers and The Saints. The Saints have been showing good lately, but I still wouldn't pick them to win the division. Alas, an upset would be nice, Drew Brees deserves another playoff run.

                      NORTH: Minnesota Vikings
                      The Vikings are sitting atop the North division right now with a 5-2 record. I can't say I've been paying too much attention to them lately, but I believe they have the edge over a Detroit Lions team that always seems to start strong and sputter.

                      EAST: Philadelphia Eagles
                      Before the Cowboys fans pick up their torches, I think the Eagles have a legitimate shot at taking the NFC East crown. They played a fine game shredding my Arizona Cardinals and have shown great strides and improvement on the field when compared to last years performances. While I think Dallas will still be neck to neck with Phili, I still think the Eagles will come out on top.

                      WILDCARDS
                      Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks
                      Outside my predictions for division winners, these two teams are better than every other team in the league. As much as it hurts to say, I don't believe The Seahawks will lose out a second place spot in the NFC West to my Arizona Cardinals.

                      AFC
                      WEST: Kansas City Chiefs
                      The Chiefs have a really good shot at winning their division. Following the Bronco's shutout loss and the Raiders average play, I predict the Chiefs will own the division.

                      SOUTH: Houston Texans
                      I'm jumping on the Deshaun Watson hype. The dude is Dak Prescott 2.0. Even though their defense is without JJ Watt, Watson can lead them to the AFC South crown and a playoff spot.

                      NORTH: Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers
                      Provided the Browns don't win out and the Steelers don't lose out, The Steelers should have it easy in a division with an inconsistent Bengals team and The Ravens being their only actual contest. Browns 0-16, anyone?

                      NORTH: New England Patriots
                      Their most recent game shutting down The Falcons restored my faith that their defense can perform at a high level following a horrid start to the season on the backs of the defense. If the defense can continue playing this way, Tom Brady can take em back to the top again.

                      WILDCARDS
                      Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills/Tennessee Titans
                      I like the look the Jaguars have been giving lately. They look like a lot stronger team than the one we've seen in recent years. I don't see any other teams besides the Bills or Titans having a real shot at limping into the wildcard round with a 6th seed than these two. It was a pretty tough pick.


                      SO what do you guys think? Do any of you have something you could add to this discussion? Let me know your thoughts! After all, an injury can change a season in a blink of an eye. The NFL is known as the Not For Long league for a reason-many things in the NFL are fleeting, unless your Bill and Brady.

                        Robbed by a starstruck ref at Arsenal. Who'd have thunk it.

                        Good run of form for your lot, I'll be honest and say I haven't been looking at the league table much because it's depressing.

                        I have no idea how Sheff Utd are top, they honestly looked like pure relegation fodder when we played them. Glad to see Brooks contributing for them though, he only played ten minutes against us and he still looked like their best player.

                          We beat them at their place but it was backs to the wall. Might well do what we did and get two promotions back to back, momentum definitely can make up for lacking a deep squad.

                          I suspect them and a few other teams (Bristol City) will fade before the end of the season.

                          It looks like we're back on track, but Sunderland have sacked their manager just in time to play us. Hopefully they're still useless without Grayson in charge.

                            I didn't watch all of that match but the part I was paying attention to, I think I remember us being 1-0 up and thinking "...how the hell did this happen?". We were weeeeeak from what I saw, but admittedly that was only part of it. How'd the match finish in any case?

                              It looks like we're back on track, but Sunderland have sacked their manager just in time to play us. Hopefully they're still useless without Grayson in charge.
                              Yes! We are def back on track man!!!

                              So people, Italy missed out on FIFA World Cup qualification for the first time in 60 years, with a 0-0 draw against Sweden that saw the Swedes proceed 1-0 on aggregate.

                              First the Americans will be absent and now the Italians? Thoughts, anyone?

                              As an Italian, I am very pissed off. It's been some years since the level of our players was decreasing and it was only a matter of time since something really big would happen and today it happened. We're out of the World Cup qualification for the first time in 60 years.
                              This time I think the fault relies mostly on the manager, wrong starting 11s, wrong subs, wrong tactics... a failure on every side of the spectrum.
                              Very sorry for Gianluigi Buffon as well who wanted to end his career partecipating in his last World Cup.

                              I do feel bad for Buffon, that he had to end his career on a sour note.

                              But you do have a point, the Italians have fallen from grace so badly in the last few years and I wouldn't be surprised if their coach got the boot. I am happy that there's some different faces playing this time around such as first-timers Panama and Iceland, as well as some nations that hadn't played a WC in a long time, like Sweden, Egypt and Morocco.

                              My nation Australia has its second play-off against Honduras tomorrow in Sydney, while Peru and New Zealand also have their second play-off. One country from both these play-offs will fill the final two spots, and my Aussies played well for what was a 0-0 draw on Honduran soil last week so hopefully fingers crossed that we beat them in Sydney to make it to our fourth consecutive WC.

                              Italy are usually one of the teams I enjoy watching at the World Cup so it is a bit of a shame, but the quality of their squads has been decreasing since they won the whole thing in 06. Maybe this will inspire widespread changes in coaching at all levels like Germany experienced in the early 2000s. Things might get worse before they get better for Italy though, Insigne looks like the only true star for them after all the retirements.

                              Hopefully Buffon gets a Champions League medal next year to make up for it.

                              Australia has proceeded to their fourth straight WC finals since 2006, with a 3-1 thrashing of Honduras.

                              Now it comes down to New Zealand vs Peru to decide that final qualification spot.

                              Edit: And Peru is in! 2-0 win over NZ sends the Peruvians to their first WC since 1982.

                                I wonder when Conte will try to get rid of Batshuayi, always avoids starting him and then when he does, he hauls him off before an hour as the team lose.
                                Don't see them surviving. They'll manage to avoid the worst point records but I don't see how they're going to get to even 30 points.

                                And ridiculous performance in Seville yesterday. Moreno can't play at all against them. Feels like a loss.
