    Game two this morning at 1050
    NSW 1/0 up after an amazing first game.
    Record points score by nsw. 50 points
    Today’s match could settle the series for nsw.
    Spectacular tryscoring debut by Brian To’o.
    Tom Trbojevic scored a hat trick. Everything clicked for the blues and Queensland were outplayed in all areas.
    Today’s game is at the Suncorp Brisbane and although the performance from maroons will be better, NSW are rampant and it is hard to see them stepping off the gas here.
    Valentine Holmes is a big price to score the first try around 22/1 for Queensland and a good start is essential for them to be in this match.
    Brian To’o
    Tom Trbojevic

    Should be on the score sheet again for Nsw.
    Those three players to score at anytime.

    Tom Trbojevic a tryscorer as New south Wales win even more comprehensively than the first encounter.
    26 0 the final score.
    NSW spoilt things a little by objecting to the selection of a player under the eligibility rules. The player was scrubbed from selection on the eve of the match despite having played representative football for Queensland as a junior. This was on the strict interpretation that a player must be eligible aged 13 the lad broke through at 14! The player released a statement to say understandably that he was broken by the rejection. It raises lots of questions about inclusion still being an issue in Australia. No doubt that the controversy will overshadow the entire series and lead to a relaxation of the archaic rule in question.

    Origin 3
    Kicks off 1110.
    New south Wales are 2/0 up and have already won the series.
    They have not won three nil for 21 years.
    They feel if they do not complete a whitewash the series will be an anticlimax.
    That is a tremendous incentive for Queensland to get something from this disastrous series for themselves.
    New south Wales are 100/30 on to win the match, Queensland 7/2.
    The tryscorer markets have josh Ado Carr 13/18 to score at anytime and tom Trbojevic 5/6 to do the same.
    All three matches have ended up being played in Queensland due to the pandemic.
    New South Wales have been totally dominant and they should be able to overcome a much improved Queensland side today.
    Ado Carr

    Both to score at anytime.

    Sack race
    Very likely to be first coach to leave this season.
    A heavy loss at home to Chelsea on Sunday would surely mean a hastily called board meeting on Monday morning.
    They are on a run of very poor form and despite two big signings, these look to have been made with a new coach in mind.
    Some stats are emerging to suggest that despite the wealth of talent Arteta is not able to utilise it to any degree.
    Straws to cling to include Lukakus poor record against Arsenal hasn’t scored in three meetings.
    Arsenal’s captain and top striker returns from covid but if not not match fit may not be able to help the side.

    Villa Newcastle
    Newcastle made such a bright start last week, and points here are vital long term.
    Villa at least are at home post Grealish but the signings need to step up quickly and perform and Newcastle will have targeted this fixture as one of the few away wins they can get before Xmas.
    Villa won 2-0
    Palace Brentford
    Brentford and palace a likely draw, but the Bees could just nick it here.
    Goaless draw
    Liverpool Burley
    Goals galore here as the kop returns.
    Liverpool won 2-0
    Man city Norwich
    Man city need to emulate Liverpool after defeat last week at Spurs. After a strong start by Norwich, Manchester to settle and cut lose.
    Man city cut loose indeed final score

    Man city vs Arsenal
    Very early to have a club’s pivotal match, but this is it for Arsenal and Arteta.
    A draw is the minimum requirement for a team having it’s worst start to a season in 118 years.
    The off field activity in Arsenal’s favour is the anti climax of local rivals United stealing a signing under City’s noses.
    Prediction half time Arsenal full time man city.
    Correct score
    Arsenal 1 Man city 3
    Arsenal 2 Man city 3
    Arsenal 0 Man city 3

    Four Nil to Man city and counting!!
    Final score

    Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1
    More dodgy outside control from var over penalty review.
    Right decision to award penalty, but referee presented with still image on monitor. Auto suggestion.

    correct scores.
    John McGinn to score at anytime
    Scotland hang on to win, missing a hatful of chances in the process.

    Sunday 26th September
    Arsenal to beat Spurs
    Lacazette to score at anytime.
    Southampton to beat Wolves

    Dundee utd to beat Celtic
    Half time full time
    Draw/ Dundee
    Telling stat is Sours failure to beat Arsenal
    Arsenal are unbeaten in their past 10 Premier League home games against Tottenham (W6, D4).
    Arsenal are trying to win consecutive league fixtures against Spurs for the first time since 2014.
    Spurs’ 3-2 victory at the Emirates in 2010 is their only win in the past 28 top-flight matches away to Arsenal (D11, L16).
    Arsenal have scored at least once in each of their last 22 Premier League home games against Tottenham.
    Celtic look vulnerable at home to Dundee utd
    They are having a torrid time this season and have already lost three from six. Dundee utd are above them in the table, so the huge odds against an away win are a gift,

    Arsenal 3up
    Form an orderly queue!!!
    Dundee utd so close to a decent pay out.

    Full time.
    Wolves turned form around to win at troubled saints great to see Jimanez get the goal.
    I don’t think lacazette figured in Arsenal’s 3-1 win.
    That is 1 win from the last 29 matches at Arsenal for Spurs so the selection was absolutely a no brainer

    There are some compelling stats
    Which suggest this game will go either of two ways.
    Draw or win for Palace.
    Neither side are good on a Monday!
    Saha has four goals in this fixture.
    Half time full time
    Brighton/ Draw
    Brighton/ Palace
    Saha to score at anytime.

    Brighton could go top with a win.
    Great start to season for both sides.

    Newcastle play Spurs this weekend.
    Steve Bruce 1000 games as a manager.
    I wonder if this will be his last game.
    Newcastle clearly have nobody lined up to replace him and they have no choice but to keep him in charge until a replacement is found.
    Newcastle players now have to play for their futures!! So Steve Bruce is firmly in the driving seat here. Football is a funny game and it would not suprise me to see Bruce keep his place for longer than expected.
    Norwich have an unattractive business model in place which guarantees them promotion and relegation every other year.
    They make a decent profit, and get to develop a youth policy unaffected by the demands of trying to keep up with the premier elite.
    However they are now coming in for a lot of stick for this approach and are being labelled unambitious.
    It is this sort of attention that sponsors and boards do not like.
    Daniel Farke therefore could well be the victim and may be a suprise sacking in the coming days at 25/1 freely available.
    It would further be no suprise if Norwich then looked to former player and coach Steve Bruce as their next appointment!

    Newcastle vs Spurs

    Another sky bet
    Kane 2+ shots on target
    and Saint Maximin 1+ shots on target
    Forty five minutes realistically if this one is to come in before subs are made.
    I think this is a decent wager.
    But the bookie must think so too.
    Kane is woefully out of sorts and Newcastle are one of the clubs who may seek his services in January. Saint Maximin is a live wire and I would expect him to have a shot on target. Kane is certainly the weak bridge in this bet.

    Got to half time and with Kane only half way there with 1 goal from 1 shot and the Newcastle man on a blank, I cashed out small profit. Got the impression they could play all day without adding. so before either manager made a substitution it was time to cashout.

    Brentford vs Leicester
    West Ham vs Tottenham
    Man utd vs Liverpool

    Brentford have been excellent this season and have taken to their new home and the top table like ducks to water.
    Leicester have never looked back since promotion but are in and out although safe in the division. Likely draw here.

    West Ham can solidify their position as 2nd top London side with a win here.
    Spurs went behind inside two minutes at Newcastle a club who have a fight on their hands to stay in the division. Suseptable to set pieces, another early score is a real possibility against a rampant hammers team.
    Big mistake to rest players in midweek they will not be match fit despite the rest and team lost in any case.
    West Ham to score 2+ goals. West Ham to win.

    Man utd vs Liverpool
    Tough match ahead with Man utd facing some searching questions. This is the game which will define the season for them.
    The manager has to secure a win or at least avoid defeat. Liverpool must be confident of winning here in what us usually a tight contest.
    Prediction Liverpool win
    Salah to score @ 3/1

    Free money
    For a change.
    Salah scores twice just to make sure!!
    Often teams don’t score in the second half after scoring three or more,but hard to see them not adding just one.
    They are awful are united…
    Must be it for the manager now.
