Not a dig on Stevie lol...

I was just wondering if anyone who watches any more PL football that just Villa notices a preponderance of other teams always slipping over at a crucial moment. Last night vs Liverpool was noticeable to me. 

Is it the studs / blades too short, or are we massively over watering the pitch to gain some kind of advantage and that just makes us slip over a lot negating said advantage. Really confused as why we don't sort it out.

Was the same at Wolves and Burnley we had players slipping

It's been a bugbear of mine for some time and I've moaned about it on here before.  We always seem to slip over more than the other team we are playing.  This is a consistent issue.

Did Liverpool players, slip over much?

Is it the pitch, studs or simply indecision and changing their mind, in terms of their positioning?

Bring back the pitch guy who PSG stole

My mother in law to be is friends with his wife. Apparently they’re paying him bucketloads and he loves it over there. We’ve lost a gem it seems.

Brandon Williams wishes this were true.

happening far too frequently. Douglas luiz went over in the middle of the pitch yday at one point also, so its not just near either of the goalposts....frustrating doen't begin to describe it!

We’ve all noticed this slipping over problem, but does it really happen to us more than other teams? Obviously we notice it when it happens to us but most of us watch many more of our games than other  team’s games. When our players slip it naturally matters, if another team have a problem,  we either don’t notice or enjoy the consequences, if there are any. I’d be interested to know if there are any stats on this and if clubs, particularly us, monitor them?
