Haha, Guardiola might need to go to Juventus to get his confidence back

It just isn't the same without fans in the stadiums, like watching practise matches on the training ground.

Nah, the games are as competitive as they were with the fans there.

The number of pens this season is absolutely ridiculous.

Foxes have taken charge of the EPL ladder. Wolves are yet to show their true colors. All the best to gaffers Senhor Nuno Espirito Santos of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Senhor Pep Guardiola of Manchester City. Congratulations to winners Leicester and West Ham.

As is the nature of them. The ones that Everton & Newcastle got this weekend made me want to put my foot through the TV and send the bill to the FA.

This is a Premier League issue, as IFAB (The International Football Association Board) recommends showing leniency when the handling player cannot see the ball (as in the Dier, Ward & Lindelof occasions).

The PL have just decided to ignore this recommendation and penalize accidental handballs by defenders in all situations as long as the ball strikes the arm in the 'golden zone' below the armpit.

They are going to have to change their approach quicksharp or we'll be having a PK every game. My guess is that refs themselves might start ignoring the PL guidance.

It wasn’t even consistent in the Palace v Everton game. Everton should have had 2 pens according to the ridiculous way refs are dealing with handballs.

Some more cynical people are saying the glut of goals will be great for marketing the PL abroad.

Possibly, it has been a wild couple of weeks. Nosebleed territory for your boys though eh, looking very promising.
