  1. 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.

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

    NBC – your coverage rocks!

  3. 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
