Yep. And check out this state of the art reporting from The Guardian;

It’s all over! Villa will be disappointed not to win and delighted not to lose. United will be furious not to win but also relieved about not losing.
End quote.

Great to have it back. 🤦‍♂️

Well I have to say last nights Two games did nothing at all for me, a bore fest of the highest order, I really don't think I've missed the Premier League at all, it just didn't even seem real to me, as I said a while back, its ITFC or nothing for me.
I only wanted a match report from you Mike, not actually to sell your sole to the hammers, :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think the more worrying thing here Marko is, what is a copy of the Guardian doing in Scotland in the first place, I thought it was extinct north of Watford.. 8)

I watched the the ManShittyArse game on Nats only. I quite enjoyed it. I think I could hear Luiz sobbing when he got sent off. What a cuunnt!

I gave last nights games a look too, I seriously think I've fallen out of love with Football tbh, with no fans there I'm just not interested, I am intrigued to know how I'll feel when Town resume with no fans in attendance.

looks like WBA will have an advantage over Leeds now, I mean they have been playing in front of no fans since 1878. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wolves look to be a very good side! Great substitutions; Traore created both goals!

Looking more like top flight Wolves v WBA derbies will be back next season. When were these last contested in the top flight, Wolfie? Recently or yonks ago?

the last time we played the Black Country Derby in the Premier was Micks and Clipboards last season at the Mol, 2011ish ..our loss was the Towns gain,

For those who’ve watched the games, what’s the general opinion about the level of competitiveness in these games. Obviously haven’t got the fans, but are the players giving everything or is it more like a friendly match?

I’ve watched 3 games so far, and to be honest once you get used to no fans it all seems pretty normal. I’ve been enjoying footy again!

Well it’s all about opinions I suppose. The fan machine was doing a decent job, but it was too weird for me. I just know I’ll not get used to it. Switched channels after Palace half time. That was enough for me. Thank the sweet mother of Jaysus I’m not tied up in a Sky or BT contract.

I'm finding the games all a bit unreal, almost false, can't take them seriously I'm afraid, without the fans it means nothing. Maybe I'll feel different when Town return to action

To be honest I’ve found it quite difficult to watch and hold interest. The only game I’ve managed to watch from start to finish so far has been Tottenham v Manchester United. I’ll give the Merseyside Derby a chance tonight as much as anything because I so much want to see Jordan Henderson lift the Premiership Trophy after such a brilliant season so far. It was his 30th birthday this week and like the true professional he is he spent it in total isolation.

Mike, it cant be the same but as players get used to it, things will improve, have you notice the lower teams seem to be playing better without the pressure of there fans on there back. look at Brighton, Newcastle and Watford results.

didn't make much difference to WHU as there fans are quiet and left the stadium before half time,
