    It's only natural with so many defensive minded managers that are happy to concede possession and wait for a set piece opportunity.

    and the opposite where patience and moving the ball to create spaces rather than pace / attacking. It comes up a lot on podcasts and it doesn't mean what they say it does

    Anyone know how they count time of possession? When the ball is dead, in preparation for a free kick, corner, throw, etc., is this time excluded from the calculation or counted as possession to the team awarded the kick/throw?

    No, because Sky can no longer squeeze them into Sky Super Sunday. It's very inconsiderate.

    So you haven't noticed that Super Sunday has morphed into Super Friday, Super Saturday, Super Sunday and Super Monday with four of the Big Six chasing the final two CL places every weekend?

    Plus pulling off an even bigger trick, that of turning survival in the PL practically equal to winning the fudging competition.
