    That is absolutely correct but it hasn’t stopped me from jumping around my apartment like a madman for the last few minutes. Christian Benteke just made it all worth it.

    Week 25

    I haven't seen much of them this season, but their GD sure stuck out versus the adjacent teams in the table.

    Even after that goal from Brighton, Palace's defense looks like a kid playing with matches since halftime.

    Well holy shit, I like that! Welcome to Croydon JP Mateta!

    The way things have gone, I imagine you're right, but I hope you're wrong.

    Does Crystal Palace pretty much every season I’ve followed them count? :)

    Week 25

    I’m mostly just hoping that Monday won’t be as awful as the last few. I’ll brew the coffee ;)

    Game week 24 game thread

    I’m finally watching the Union-Schalke game. Earlier in the game, the announcers said that Taiwo Awoniyi has missed 7 “sitters” this season (I didn’t know that was a stat). He just missed another. Can Liverpool please get him a work permit or at least get him out of Berlin?

    It's got to be better than yet another godawful Palace performance. Burnley had only scored two away goals in their last 9 games. They got two in about 9 minutes today.

    Global Football Odds & Ends

    A few months ago, there were a couple of Bayern Leverkusen vans parked in our courtyard. I thought that was weird, but didn't think too much of it. One of my neighbors who I'm friendly with just told me that it's because Patrick Weiser lives three floors above me, and when his son Mitchell is...

    Townsend just missed a sitter that would have iced it.

    And now Cahill with a goal off a nice set piece. I've said this before, but Eze's delivery is sooooo much better than anyone who has recently preceded him.

    Jairo Riedewald >>> Jonjo Shelvey at the candylandriots apartment. 1-1 on a really, really nice goal.

    I think I just said, "goddamn that Charlie Runkel looking motherfucker." But anal fissure works too. Sorry Toon Army.

    My irrational hatred for Jonjo Shelvey manages to increase.

    FIFA 21 - Where City and Liverpool fans agree, Rashford is awesome

    Damn @JayMags71 I haven’t played 21, but if I had even two of those guys in the years I’d played I would have been ecstatic. Of course, I’m terrible (I think the highest I ever reached was division 5, and that was years ago), so that probably impacts things.

    Guaita just saved our asses again. Edit: on second view, it more ran into him than him making a great save.

    Wilf just baaaarrrely missed a goal. Hit the crossbar and went down just in front of the line. Hopefully that doesn’t come back to haunt them. And as I wrote that, one of the announcers said exactly that, and added Batsuhayi’s miss from 6 yards in the first half.
