Supposedly there is going to be a fan protest.

He'll get some stick. Especially if we lose.

If we win, i reckon a lot of fans will change their tune. Except those hardcore fans who take supporting a team way too seriously. :laugh:

I wouldn't call it domination, but spurs did press hard in the second half. It just goes to show how much our defence has improved since the first part of the season when we were leaking goals all over the place. Spurs were lucky to get off the hook though with the Rooney penalty shout. They should have been dead and buried had that penalty been given. I guess the officials have their good and bad days. The weather certainly wasn't on their side.

Dominated, partially. Screwed out of a PK, yes. Given the circumstances, I think Tottenham came out pretty lucky with that result.

Which is why Dempsey celebrated like he won the cup :p

Haha! Though, he should be embarrassed for giving up 1 or 2 other easy opportunities.

I hope Rafa gets sacked just for continuing to start Torres. Ba has already proven to be in better form, he should start every match - we need the scoring. I've always liked Torres, he works hard, but now we have someone better.

Couldn't stomach a full season of Benitez.

It was reported in the press that RDM was sacked because of not starting Torres, something which RA demanded. I don't understand why some clubs have to interfere and take such matters out the managers hands. Why have managers in the first place?

One example is the oligarch at Chelsea and another that comes to mind is the chicken merchant aka 'global advisor' @ Blackpool FC who was ruffled (excuse the pun) for picking their starting team not long ago.

If that was any Man utd player getting almost chopped down in the box they would've gone down, if Dempsey hadnt have let you off it would've been a very different game! Penalty and a sending off.. Either way, happy with 4 points against united this season!

Thoughts on the game?

StrikedOut

From what I heard the new manager just told then to continue with what they know. Sounds like we have the best chances and some of our players did raise their game a little. Hopefully we can continue our improvements and get a couple new faces in before the end of the window especially with some of the people we have been linked with. I don't watch the games, I seem to be bad luck and only see/hear goals going against us so I watch the replays and updates (plus last thing I need is premature aging!).

As for the fans. We knew we needed to back the team and the new manager, NC's actions are not their fault. Show Adkins that we respect and appreciate his actions and that he will always be remembered for what he has done for us but then move forward and focus on the rest of the season.

Yeah I didn't see the match, but my thoughts pretty much mimic StrikedOut. Not a bad start to the Pochettino era, bring on Man U I guess!

Just saw that there's some discussion going on about the Man Utd vs Tottenham game and if you think that Tottenham were "lucky" to come out with a point you clearly didn't watch the game or you're one of the deluded Manchester United fans. Man Utd has ONE opportunity in the first half which they took (don't give me that 'we're a one chance one goal side GGMU rubbish) and in the second half they were absolutely outplayed.

It was domination from Spurs, the shots and shots on goal shows that. Each time Manchester United had the ball, they'd try and hold it for long periods because Spurs isn't exactly a side that presses on you when the opposition has the ball but Spurs were most definitely a more threatening side going up top and they most definitely deserved the point, if not 3!

Southampton sure want to make things difficult. A win today could have put us further out the relegation battle but now we're right back in the thick of it.

Come on Saints!

They're becoming a "giant killer". I reckon this win could see us safe.

It's looking a bit better for saints now. But we are only 4 points from the drop zone, so I don't want to celebrate too soon :-)

What is everyones view on Suarez today?

First he is racist and now he is biting players. I hope he gets a hefty ban and Liverpool offload him. They can't keep him after that. They already looked weak keeping him after the Evra incident.

Yeah they need to rid of him, he's a disgrace. The fact he scored the equaliser as well just sums it up, seeing him celebrate when he shouldn't even be on the pitch made me want to punch the screen.

Well, he was biting before he was racist. He was banned for 7 games in Holland for biting.

It's an odd situation with him really. He is an extremely talented footballer, but (it seems) a lousy person. Biting, racism, diving, handballs, punching the list probably goes on.

I know there are many players who cheat (diving, handball etc), and every time it is Suarez it is picked up on by the press maybe more then when others do it.

I'm not sure who would want to risk buying him, but I think he should be gone after this latest incident.

Suarez is a disgrace to football :angry:

Hopefully if the FA picks up the biting situation, that'll be his last game of the season!

Well Liverpool have fined him :pinch:

Does anyone else think if it was one of their lesser players, they would just get rid of him but because Suarez is their best player they don't want to offload him.

Plus i'd kind of understand if this was the first time he has done it. Heat of the moment and all that. This is the second time he has done it. He clearly didn't learn his lesson the first time.

He makes Balotelli look like a saint.

      Google adds match predictions to Premier League games following use in World Cup
      by Paul Hill



      If you’ve been watching the World Cup this summer you might have seen Google’s attempt to predict the outcome of matches by the 90-minute mark. Now that the World Cup is coming to an end Google has decided to continue testing the feature for Premier League matches which are played around the U.K.

      Google has not announced the win-draw-lose probability feature for the Premier League, which starts on August 10th, just yet but the feature is already live. It’s the only league in the U.K. that has the feature switched on, and seemingly the only league in Europe to have the feature too. Neither the French Ligue 1 or German Bundesliga have the feature switched on and the Italian and Spanish leagues have not yet announced their fixtures so it’s not possible to know if the feature will be enabled in those leagues.

      The probabilities that Google has produced have been a bit hit and miss over the duration of the World Cup, for example, yesterday it said England should win (43%) or there ought to be a draw (33%) - after 90 minutes, the match was a draw rather than a win for England. Going forward, it has Belgium with a 43% chance to win in the third-place playoff against England's (30%), and it says France should win the cup with 49% against Croatia’s 22% - it’ll be interesting to see how that one turns out.

      Amazon wins Premier League TV rights, will show 20 matches a season from 2019-2022
      by Hamza Jawad

      Today, Amazon has announced that it will be showing 20 Premier League fixtures per season from 2019-2022, following its acquisition of a Premier League broadcasting package. All of the matches will be available in the UK for no additional cost on Prime Video, the video on-demand service exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers.

      The broadcasting package acquired by the company is one of the final two smaller ones that was available, albeit one that features fixtures over an important holiday period. The first midweek round in December will be streamed on Prime Video, followed by streaming of the Boxing Day round later that month. The Premier League comprises of 20 teams, and the package of 20 games will cover two full rounds of fixtures, thereby including all participant teams. This will make it the first time a full round of Premier League matches will be broadcast live in the UK.

      Prime membership currently costs $12.99 a month, after going up by $2 in January. On the other hand, the yearly membership is $49. Premier League football joins a growing collection of live sports being streamed on Prime Video, including NFL games, ATP World Tour Tennis events, and US Open Tennis. Additionally, aside from live streaming, weekly highlights of all Premier League fixtures throughout the season will be available to be viewed by Prime subscribers as well.

      Jay Marine, Vice President of Prime Video in Europe, commented on the new partnership, noting:

      The other package of 20 games was bought by BT for £90 million ($121 million), although it is not yet clear how much Amazon had to pay to secure streaming rights for the somewhat similar package it acquired. The company will be looking to push the number of Prime subscribers in the coming years, especially since avid football fans in the UK will now need to subscribe to Amazon Prime, as well as BT Sport and Sky Sports, to view all Premier League matches available on TV.

      HTC blunder confirms specifications and pricing of its U12 Plus before event
      by Paul Hill



      HTC is set to unveil its HTC U12 at an event tomorrow, there’s a good chance it will officially unveil the HTC U12 Plus too. Unfortunately for HTC, its engineers appear to have left a test webpage for the HTC U12 Plus open for the public to see. The mistake, which was quickly rectified, now means that specifications and pricing of the upcoming premium handset were leaked ahead of the official reveal.

      The premium device will be available in China with a price tag of 5,888 yuan, roughly $920. At least one of the options for the device will include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. HTC has decided to opt out of using an OLED screen and has instead gone with a 6-inch WQHD+ (1440 x 2880) Super LCD6. The U12 Plus appears to come in a variety of colours including maroon, black, and navy blue.

      The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and has a slot to add a microSD card up to 2TB. The U12 Plus is equipped with Boomsound speakers and is classified as IP68-rated water and dust resistance giving it some innate protection against the elements. Lastly, it is powered by a 3,500mAh battery which should see it last for about a day but we won’t know for certain until it gets into people’s hands.

      Let us know, are you excited for HTC’s upcoming devices?
