    This is a first in my experience. Newcastle tied Tottenham at the death on a VAR-award penalty that was sketchy to the max and NEWCASTLE manager Steve Bruce said it was a horseshit call.

    The change to the handball rule is horrendous. Basically defenders need to have their arms glued to their sides if they aren't going to give up a million PKs.

    Donovan said after the match was ended that the official admitted to hearing it, but didn't know what the word meant since he didn't speak that language.

    Manchester U went from winning a penalty at 31 seconds to having a man sent off and trailing 3-1 inside of 30 minutes. Good lord.

    That’s a borderline job losing performance so far for Ole. At least I hit my first goal bet on Bruno.

    Villa Park would have been insane today had fans been allowed. 7-2 over the defending champions, absolutely unbelievable. Hopefully won't need another miracle to stay up this year.
