Tell me Mr K do you subscribe to any Sky channels?.

Not any of the sports channels; only get Sky1 because it's in the package, don't watch it.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Why would you want to watch football anyway when Jimmy is bowling like this.

Always assuming you have Sky Sports of course.

Multi tasking ! TMS on the radio, far superior to boring Sky, whilst watching my team come out on the right side of a second half with 7 goals. £4 admission, can't be bad. All in ultra ultra HD, ie. being there. We're on the road the Wembley now, just need to win 12 more rounds...

Re: Season 2017/2018

Don't like the ABBA penalty system, also questioning the reasoning behind the Courtois penalty.

Re: Season 2017/2018

I think it is a good idea, the usual way means the team going second is always playing catch up, statistically under the normal system the team going first wins the shoot out over 60% of the time, on the few times this ABBA system has been used its 50/50 which has to be a good thing.

Unless both teams take their penalties at the same time, someone is always playing catch up.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Not if they score them, the simple fact that with the normal system the team going first wins just over 60% of the time and with the ABBA system it is 50/50 suggests it is a much fairer system for both teams.

And with the usual system the team going second is always playing catch up, with this system that dynamic changes every two penalties after the first one.
