    Spurs 1-0 Arsenal in one of the most one-sided hammerings ever, I imagine.

    Mkhitaryan - nice fella, lovely footballer, but absolutely no bollox when it matters - taken off just after half time after, well, a typical Mkhi performance. Henryk, meet Arsenal. Arsenal, meet Henryk. You're made for each other.

    Seriously though, how long is Wenger gonna get away with his dud signings, dud tactics and dud teams? That was one of the worst performances I've seen from them today and had Lacazette (another Wenger marvel) managed to scuff that one in from 8 yards at the end even the most diehard Gooner would have had to admit that it was a travesty of the actual game.

    What a team of fannies.

    Sergio Aguero scored four second-half goals and Kevin De Bruyne produced a hat-trick of gorgeous assists as City moved 16 points clear at the top

    Suffice to say I look forward to hearing what a dynamic and outstanding performance the hip-holding invisible midget put in against the bar codes.

    Blues crippled by the debts incurred by Harry Redknapp transfers. There's a surprise.

    Is Sanchez on Newcastle Utds payroll also?



    £600k a week from Manure Utd is not enough! He's topping up his income from the Magpies

    First points of 2018 for Huddersfield Town moving them out of the relegation zone after a freefall slide from December last year. Latest signing Alex Pritchard looking great, and hopefully taking some of the workload off overplayed Aaron Mooy in midfield.

    Saints back into the relegation zone... I couldn't watch the 2nd half. The club record £19m striker is a dud. Cant believe Pellegrino has been allowed to keep his job this long.. but surely its too late for us to stay up with him at the helm. Thus is what happens when the board choose profits over performance.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Premier League looks abroad after TV rights prices hit ceiling in UK


    The Premier League has always relied on takings that have increased yearly - but the upward climb now appears to have reversed.

    There have been two great maxims of English football in recent times - the national team was destined to lose on penalties, and the Premier League would always sell its rights for more than it had done previously.

    One of those rules has now almost certainly been broken.

    With
    five of seven broadcast packages sold, the Premier Leagueís auction for domestic rights has brought in around £4.5bn. It is a staggeringly huge amount of cash, but not quite as staggering as they would have hoped for.

    Three years ago, the Premier League reaped £5.1bn. Even if they get a good price for the final two packages, high-concept packages that revolve around broadcasting ten matches simultaneously, there seems little chance that this package will extend to anywhere near £5bn.

    Take a look at the price paid by Sky. Itís bought the rights to show 128 matches per season (two more than last time) and is paying £199m less per year. Thatís a 16% reduction in three years - not a marginal change, but a significant one.

    For BT, the deal doesnít look quite so good. It is paying more per match and will be moving its focus away from Saturday early evenings and instead onto Saturday lunchtime.

    That's a slot where Sky sometimes struggled to find an audience, so it will be interesting to see how BT attracts viewers who might well be doing other things - including setting off to a football match.

    But the big stand-out fact here is not about scheduling, but money, and about why this deal looks a bit less lucrative than the one that went before. So whatís happened?
    Well the bubble probably hasn't burst, but certainly it's drifted up to hit a ceiling.

    For one thing, it's worth noting that, in 2015, Sky paid a lot more for its rights than anybody had predicted.

    It was more fearful of BT back then, and perhaps also of a mystery digital bidder, and ended up paying 70% more than its previous rights deal. So you could argue that the 2015 deal was amazingly lucrative.

    For another, the Premier League is confident that future deals for its overseas rights will comfortably make up for the shortfall.

    English football is watched by more people round the world than any other league so brings with it the valuable ability to generate content that is enjoyed by a lot of people in a lot of places.

    And that is the great aim of companies such as Amazon and Netflix, worldwide giants trying to satisfy rapidly growing audiences. Little wonder that they, as well as Apple and Google, have been running the numbers over a bid for Premier League rights.
    And that, in turn, is bound to push up the purchase price for everyone.

    So while the income from domestic rights has slipped, plenty of people within the sports rights industry believe that the overall revenue will end up considerably higher.

    It may not be long, indeed, before international broadcast rights earn more money for the Premier League than the domestic deals.

    However you dress it, we are still talking about huge sums of money.

    A quarter of a century ago, when the Premier League was formed, the average wage of a top-flight footballer was about £1,700 a week. Itís now more than 30 times that, and there are some players earning hundreds of thousands of pounds per week.

    Yes, the domestic income has dropped slightly, but it has slipped from an astronomic peak. Nobody in football is about to become poor on the back of this new deal.

    19 million for a striker with a scoring record of one goal in every five games.

    Shows how desperately difficult it is to find goal scorers these days.

    Albion should have been three up in twenty minutes against Chelsea the other night...then Chelsea get three in almost as many attempts.

    And in the unlikely event that teams like Saints or Albion actually get a guy who's capable of scoring 20 a season then either he's injury prone like Austin or Sturridge or he'll leave after a season or two.

    Tough.
