You Don't Want to Miss @Catsenal1's Analysis of #AFCMCFC

In the aftermath of our stirring, infuriating, inspiring defeat to Man City at the weekend, I present to you some rather unique and insightful analysis from Catsenal, a Korean YouTuber. His tactical analysis is spot-on, and his presentation offers some delightfully 1990s style 8-bit video graphics. Yes, the voiceover is in Korean, but the subtitles are in excellent English, and the insights are illuminating. You really do owe it to yourself to watch this video and to follow him on Twitter here. Once you've done that, come back and watch how well he breaks down our performance against the Prem's evil overlords.

Rivals' Roundup #19(?): Fixtures Flying Fast and Furious

Between our last roundup and today, something like 93 matches were played and a similar number were postponed in what was, of course, a completely consistent and transparent process that in no way favored any club over any other, which is nothing less than we've come to expect from the FA. One upshot is that one club—Burnley—has played only 17 matches, while two clubs—Man City and Chelsea—have played 21. Surely, this explains each club's position on the table. It stands to reason, after all, that playing more matches earns a club more points. Much as I would love a deeper analysis into each club's over the busy holiday season, we all know that's not why any of us are here today. Instead, let's get to why we're really here: juvenile sarcasm, Simpsons references, and highly biased assessment of clubs.
