    NFL 2019 Midway Point: Gase into the Abyss

    I don't know. Obviously Jackson runs the ball a lot but most of the time he isn't taking solid tackles because defenders struggle to line him up. Newton's the bigger man but a lot of the time it seemed like he was being asked to run over the top of defenders when he was running the ball. Bigger man or not that seems like more of a recipe for picking up injuries.

    NFL 2019 Midway Point: Gase into the Abyss

    Heh, watching the highlights this morning If I was on that 49ers defence I'd be pretty irritated this morning. I'm not sure they could have done a lot more to win that game.

    The Chiefs lost with Mahomes back too.

    How close they are is kind of subjective but it was definitely Bernardo Silva considering David Silva was on the bench and didn't get on.

    Right, but Bernardo Silva wasn't really that close to Alexander-Arnold. I think he probably could have gotten his arm out of the way if he'd really wanted to. Look, I'm not too upset it wasn't given but if I was the referee I would've given a penalty.

    Is that the case though? If it had missed Alexander-Arnold, gone to a City player and they'd scored it clearly would have been ruled out under the new rules but does a defender committing a foul in the box count as City creating a goal scoring opportunity? I'm not sure.

    Liverpool a little bit lucky but I can’t say I’m too fussed. That’s a big result. Also while I do think the Alexander-Arnold handball should have been a penalty it’s quite funny how pissed off Kompany is about it given he definitely should have a red at the Etihad last year.

    I think there’s a decent argument to be made that his arm isn’t in a natural position. Regardless, I think the wider point pretty much everyone is making at this stage is that VAR really doesn’t seem to be adding anything in terms of satisfaction with the decisions made so what’s the point of putting up with the negatives it brings? City were on top for a concerning amount of that half but fortunately their defence isn’t very good.

    It's a bit concerning that Lovren appears to have leapfrogged Gomez in the pecking order of Liverpool centre backs. Firstly in terms of Gomez's development, he's clearly got the potential to be really good but going backwards isn't a great sign, and secondly because it means Lovren is playing.

    Fourth Quarter 2019 Reading

    I've been thinking recently that I don't do anywhere near as much rereading since I started doing most of my reading on a kindle. With that in mind I had a bit of a root through my physical books and reread the first two Rigante books by David Gemmell. They were a bit clunkier than I remembered but still entertaining quick reads. Other than that I just finished Salvation Lost by Peter F. Hamilton. It features all the usual quirks of Hamilton's books, in fact I think it has more than the usual allocation of weird and unnecessary sex scenes etc, but it's still a well realised and interesting science fiction story for people who like lots of stuff getting blown up in space. A good read overall.

    I think they probably are better but Kante and Mahrez were really good that year. They don’t really have a player on that level this year. Their overall squad is clearly better though.

    Hard to see Arsenal coming back now. This Leicester side are a really good team. There’s an argument they’re better than the title winning side. They look well set to get in the top four.

    Er, how’s that not a foul?
