I was in two minds about Jose, on the one hand Spurs are a good fit for him, the underdogs fits his style

But he's still past it in my opinion, but his style might just turn one more team into winners Crazy

There was a South American game last week, they chalked a goal off after going back a good minute before it (4 or 5 passages of play before the ball hit the net) a foul on a defender which wasn't a foul it was a slip in my opinion, but they ruled it out anyway

So its made up on the spot, a goal needed is a goal given for VAR

re the standing behind the line argument/idea
why would you start somewhere with the intention of moving forward to the line ,where you start off at within the rules
the reason they dive/move forward off the line is to cut down the angle/space for the kicker,staying on the line makes it almost impossible to save a well struck pen in the corner,as it should do

Looking forward to today's action. Fulham look certainties for the drop but Everton are hardly world-beaters either and are odds-on away from home, so a small lay on the toffees is the way I'm going to play the first game. The Bladers/Hammers match is a tough one to call so it is just a watching brief for me. Leeds at home to Arsenal. Both teams aren't great defensively so over 2.5 goals at 1.74 looks the way to go. Despite there well-publicised injuries, Liverpool still look in good shape when they face the Foxes in the last game of the day. I think the 1.94 currently available about them looks far to big a price. Good luck if punting.
