Football!! It's back, thank goodness, I need my crack.

Aston Villa 1-1 Hull,  on the opening day of the Championship season, pleased enough with that given that Villa are the favourites for promotion. Grosicki got the assist by the way, I'm hoping nobody stumps up the cash for him because he could rip this league to bits.
It was a perfect pass, very difficult to make. :clap:

I think I've mentioned this before, but to me he looks a million miles better on the right, but he's almost always played on the left.

The mainstay of Wisla for many years, Blaszczykowski, solidified his place on the right flank on the national team, before Grosicki showed up on the scene. That left Kamil playing on the left side.  Perhaps his right foot is better than his left. We never got to find out, when he had his international caps.

He's definitely more competent with his right. His left footed crosses are either hugely under hit or hugely over hit, so he either does that or cuts inside and shoots with mixed results. On the right, he can beat his man and put in a decent cross. Ta da! I want more of that, simples

Yes, I've noticed that about him also. But even if he makes one good cross out of five playing on the left side, he's still too valuable of a player not to have in the line-up. Besides, he does more than just centering passes. He can really be creative at times.

Hull 4-1 Burton. First meeting between the two sides. Hernandez bagged a hat-trick. Grosicki finally got his first goal for us, via an unexpected source....his head. He missed an open goal in the first half so it's a good job he got that one right!

An interesting day in the BPL, Rooney brings it for Everton, and Watford gets the equalizer late.

Dog of the day was Chelsea v Burnley.  Sorry, but IMHO that red card on Cahill was  shite.  What say you?

Wisla 2 Cracovia 1 :cheers: Piatek gave the visitors the lead in the 25th minute. With 15 minutes left, Cracovia had to play with ten men. That's when Lopez went to work, scoring twice. Wisla in 1st place, :) Cracovia in 14th. :(

Man U 4-O West Ham, nice debut for Lukaku, who bangs in 2.

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham after Shelvey gets sent off.

Wembley should be rocking for the Derby next Sunday.
