Funnily enough I felt compelled to tweet the MCG and congratulate them on their fair and affordable pricing.

Australia is very expensive generally but the cricket was about the third of the price I paid for a comparable seat at the Oval, and the food and drink around half the price of the London stadium.

76,000 turned up. Actually turned up that is. Affordable family entertainment.

I'm due back for the Arsenal game but if we keep winning in my absence I I may catch a later flight

I thought the MCG was horrendous, the worst cricket ground I have been to. It’s a nice walk in from the city though.

@ bubbles and marky

might thought initially after the game.

let's be honest this Soton had been on a bit of a bounce, beaten the Gooners and were expecting to continue their roll.

with the team we had out, although most definitely we had some top players there, it wasn't by far our strongest side we could put out not even counting the long term injuries.

I thought looking at the team, we might nick it if we kept it close and was hopeful honestly of a draw.

ecstatic with the way we pretty much (after the first nervy 5 minutes or so) ran the rest of the game.

now we didn't dominate ManC or the Bin Dippers but it was a tough away fixture coming on the back of a very disappoint performance and loss and no one could honestly have been surprised to see this one go pear shaped.

top marks and I think it was the performance of the season in all context.

Give that man a press pass.

One of the best things Pellegrini has done is to revitalise players who looked like they were finished at the club. Snodgrass, Hernandez and now Antonio. Maybe he can do the same for Carroll.

I just watched the Rice penalty incident on Soccer Saturday and I know I am biased in my views but.
All I can see is Rice standing his ground with the Saints player trying to get a run ion goal,,Rice having none of it and the Saints player pushing into Rice,but like the rock he is not moving,Rices arm and I can only see one ,is in the only place it can be when someone is leaning into you ,so as the ball comes in the Saints player takes his body away from Rice and throws himself forward ,Rice falls forward because of the release of pressure of the Saints players body.
At no point did Rice push the player,just held his ground ,so why did the Saints player go down ,because he knew he was no where near the ball and took a dive.
Rice said he went down easy ,which he did,that's why the ref did not award the penalty ,in my very biased opinion .

I know if what Rice does was done against a West Ham player I would want the pen.

Always the best way to judge these things. If we had conceded a goal under those circumstances, the outrage on here would be unreal.

What's happened to these chaps? Used to be reliably among the snarkiest, most passive aggressive supporters in the land.

That set of comments was almost....magnanimous. Two years of being the league's most boring team must puncture some of the hubris I guess.

Quite balanced I thought. Even a sly acknowledgement that their goal was balls. No mention of Snoddy getting body checked for going round their boy in the box though...

The issue is where Rice's arms are. If the ball had been delivered anywhere near the incident I think it's a pen. You simply can't have two arms round an opponent in the box. Has he lent into him not the other way round? Yes. Has he gone down very easily? Yes. Why did Rice go with him? Because he has his arms wrapped round him. We go off with that one, but they got off with a penalty and a flying forearm for a goal so in the end we probably still edged it. If Perez had hit the target in the first half it may well have been a very different result.

Oddly looking forward to Burnley now.
