Mick Philpott must be in an absolutely foul mood today.

Rams are getting slaughtered.

Being serious though, that fucking sucks. Even if I am still bitter about Wednesday last season.

From the outside despite everything is seems Rooney has done a good job, managing with this hanging over them.

Worst case (points wise - obv worst, worst case is RIP Derby) is -24 points!

12 for administration, 9 for financial twattery and 3 points suspended if they don't pay players and staff on time. Which is surely going to be at risk.

Forest will still finish lower though

Ronalado wants to find a new mansão because the bleating of the ovelhas was keeping him awake à noite.

My sympathy for Steve Bruce continues to be non-existent.

Keita has one kick of the ball since coming on in the 60th minute and scores a worldie with it. The Keita Hype Squad will trade off that for the rest of the season.

Big laughs at seeing a Man City 0-0

£100m on Grealish and don't buy a striker.

Plus a penalty for Saints and a red card for Walker overturned by the ref after VAR suggested he look at the monitor.

5Live verdict? "City were poor". No praise for Saints, just "a welcome point". Patronising tossbags.

i thought it was a clear pen, weird decision

As did I. But then I'm biased. Also can't have Man City losing at home to Southampton, can we? Perish the thought.

Have there been cases where VAR has asked the ref to look at the monitor and the original decision upheld? Seems to me there's psychology at play here - ref gets asked to look at monitor and thinks "Ooh might have got this wrong"

3-0 down, a Digne OG and Pickford, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin AND Coleman out. #cursed I'm not going to shit the bed just yet though. Save that for April when we're facing relegation...

Actually, I'm surprised Ings hasn't got one yet. He did get an assist though.

Grealish having second thoughts?

ETA: someone has mentioned Julian Joachim and now I feel old.

Heh, mate of mine played with him in junior Lincs football.

Man City, who've had decisions go their way since the end of the nineties. BIG CLUB

And still their fans think they're hard done by.

If Liverpool are back to 2019 give or take and Chels/Utd improved by ten points or so and City static. LFC win prem by 8 points.
