    I’m beating a dead horse, but more great discussions on MNF. They breakdown Southampton’s defending and how Pochettino has basically just taken Nigel Adkins squad (he did bring in 3 players) and instilled a confidence in them.

    They went on to compare the fortunes of Sunderland and Southampton. They use film to show the determination and confidence of the Southampton players and contrast it with footage of Sunderland.

    They also pointed out a great statistic. Southampton is #1 in the Premier League in goals conceded (0.38). And they are second in EUROPE behind AS Roma (if I remember correctly it was 0.13).

    Great stuff.

    Palace 3 Fulham 1 no reason just a guess!

  3. dstorm says:

    Loved hearing the Crystal Palace fans and song as the players came out of the tunnel – cheerleaders and all!!!

    NBC – your coverage rocks!

  4. Matt Jones says:

    Should be an open game this. Cautiously optimistic it’ll be better than many expect.

  5. Marc L says:

    Good for those Palace supporters. Loud and will be louder now. Need more of this in the League.

  6. Matt Jones says:

    I like Fulham, but they are a bit of a ‘nothing’ club. No backbone whatsoever. Some really poor defending there, keeper should have gathered the cross too

  7. Peter Quinn says:

    Palace picking up were they left off. They’re mirroring their second half effort at Anfield two weeks ago.

  8. Peter Quinn says:

    What a f**kin hit by Kasami! Chested it down and blasted it. Wow!

  9. Matt Jones says:

    One of the best goals I’ve ever seen that. Stunning control and hit.

  10. dstorm says:

    oh my – golazo

  11. Guy says:

    Beautiful. You never know which match/player is going to make your jaw drop.

  12. jtm371 says:

    not to shabby of a strike very well done.Palace needs two more to make me look good.ask my wife that is a tough job.

  13. Peter Quinn says:

    Palace have no luck. Who’s going to score next for Fulham?…Riether?

  14. Matt Jones says:

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a pair of goals like that before from two pretty average players. Anyone?
