    And that's the thanks I get !! To be honest they should be 14th not 13th based on the number of red cards compared to Boro.

    how weird that the higher teams need more shots to get goals.

    possibly a soap reference given the thread title.

    There now seems to be more players intentionally fouling opponents with the intent to injure. Low tackles aimed at the ankle and achilles. Higher tackles aimed at the knee area. The swinging arm and elbow thrust. Standing on a player who is on the ground.
    Last nights game Norwich v Birmingham. Brum player pushes over Norwich player. Linesman flags and looks towards ref. Brum player approaches Norwich player to apologise ??? Then stands on Norwich players leg. Caught by cameras not by officials.
    50 years ago my shin pads started just under the knee and went down to just above the ankle. Also wore ankle protectors. Don't see them now.
