  1. Poor start by NBC this morning regarding the discussion about Ashley Young’s dive yesterday, and whether Moyes was correct in coming out and criticizing Young for diving.

    Both Earle and Mustoe said that Ferguson wouldn’t do that sort of thing. BUT they didn’t do their research. Ferguson publicly criticized Young in the past for diving too.

    1. At least Mustoe had the sense to admit Moyes was right to say it. Earle, not so much.

      I actually wondered if they told Earle to take the opposite view of Mustoe just to manufacture an argument like on those ESPN yelling shows.

  2. I LOVE how TWI/IMG are superimposing graphics over the live match. The example I loved especially was how spread out Southampton’s attackers were, which without them would have been difficult to share.

  3. I am using NBC live extra app and airplay keep going out? The app just stops playing. Anyone else? Using Ipad.

    Played for first 35 or so to start.

    1. probably, but i will add that schneiderlin could have been sent off in the first half for his two-footer on diame that marriner didn’t even call a foul on.

      also, after o’brien’s brutal tackle it looked like schneiderlin got right up in morrison’s grill and by some interpretations could have butted him.

  4. I’m not a West Ham United supporter, but James Collins is a crap player. I’ve never rated him as a defender, but how can he sky his shot so far over the top with a golden chance to win the game for West Ham?

  5. 2 hours we never get back i put the onus on the Saints home side should be on the front foot.

    Swans AND Pool put a bow on the weekend.
