On further thought, the Brighton v Newcastle has massive implications for the loser, particularly if Fulham win the day before.

Big game. If we are any hope of European football through the league, need to beat West Ham, and hope that we see the bore 0-0 draw between Villa and Spurs.

Some matches with some big implications.
I think Arsenal might beat West Ham, Fulham might upset Leeds but I would assume Bamford will be back if the dead leg is correct as reported, Tottenham will beat Villa. I know Grealish is meant to be back, but I wonder if they might be rushing him back now their season has gotten a bit rocky.

And Brighton is going to whip the piss out of Newcastle.

Newcastle v Brighton has huge relegation implications. Hopefully it's a good watch but it could be a bore draw as both teams are too scared to lose it.

I think the 0-0 draw will be between West ham and Arsenal literally the bus vs possession.

That offside call to deny Ayling his first goal in a year was brutal.

Don't get mad at me, let me ask a question: does soccer need the offside rule?

I know they won't change it, it's part of the fabric of the game, etc.

But seriously, does soccer need the offside rule? Hockey got rid of it a few years ago afaik.

It gives the game its shape, it wouldn’t be football without it. I think interpretation should be changed and should judge by the foot
