Post by: cdbullyweefan on August 01, 2020, 09:34:48 AM
The new season starts before the old one has finished. Chaos! Well, in the Scottish top flight anyway. I think I speak for all right-minded individuals when I say best of luck to Aberdeen today.

So, the richest game in football tonight, no fans, probably a good thing not to have Fulham's clappy twats anywhere near it.

Should be a good close game, close to call, probably just favour Fulham but would be fabulous for Brentford to win promotion.

Brentford one of those all fur coat and no knickers teams. Way some rave about their front 3 you'd think they were Barcelona standard. The reality is they've had three great chances to go up and bottled all of them with the strikers completely awol.

Fulham didn't even start their first choice front 3 tonight.

He's not a bad player but way some go on about him you'd think he's the only creative midfielder playing outside of the premier league in world football.

He reminds me a little of Adel Taarabt being amazing the year QPR went up (won clean sweep of awards for championship) and then he did nothing in the premier league or anywhere else in the last 9 years.

Would rather get in Eze from QPR who is very underrated compared to the adulation the Brentford forward line gets.

He's got that touch of class, Grealish lite on the ball and that's a pretty good strength to have.

Perhaps we couldn't fit both into the same 11 but it would be huge fun to watch and we'd actually dominate loads of games against bottom half teams which is the next step forward.

It's not or hasn't been embarrassing but I believe the point has been made and now the season has finished it seems an appropriate time to end it being done every game. Allow individual players to wear a BLM logo on their kit if they wish and consider a league wide taking a knee before a game to coincide with MLK Day or on a Saturday in Black History month.

The start of the new domestic season is probably the point to stop taking the knee in my opinion. Although with my dodgy knees I am just bitter that most people can drop to their knee and get up again easier than I can.  ;)

It'll be interesting to see if they do allow individual players to sport a BLM patch - more because of what happens if players want to put another politically-aligned symbol on "their" shirt ? Would the club / PL let them ? Does the PL then become an arbiter of what is "acceptable" politically ?

Personally I haven't been a fan of it from the beginning. I watch 22 millionaires kicking a (high-tech) pig's bladder around a field for the joy of the sport, not for lessons in morality / politics. Much more impressed by Marcus Rashford's stance and activism on free meals for kids (a defined goal, pursued off the pitch), than anything BLM-related.

Will racism be sorted by footballers taking the knee for forever and a day? It reminds me of the episode of Frasier when his neighbour unveiled a huge obtrusive American flag draped across the apartment building and when asked how long he was going to keep flying it said he would keep it there until there was world peace.

If City had taken a knee at the expense of a goal it would have sent the best message.

Why should it end? If it's finished now, then it looks like a little gesture during lockdown. In front of packed stadiums, the message will resonate far more.

As for being embarrassing, I don't know where to begin, I notice there's still no reply.

I fail to see how one second of people kneeling down can cause any hardship to anyone. Black people are still suffering discrimination on a daily basis, keeping these issues in the public eye, via the medium of a platform of football matches watched by tens of millions worldwide, seems a good idea to me. Plus, the sort of people that get pissed off by this are, generally, the worst people in the world. So I'm all for it carrying on.

This essentially is the nail on head - more eloquently put I admit.

I acknowledge that my previous post was in the wrong thread but my whole view on this matter is that the act itself (bending the knee) is politically driven and belongs on game of thrones- not a football pitch.
 
All lives matter surely - but even that doesnít need to be paraded at a football match - racism is a societal issue that is not going to go away with any slogan, bending of the knee or what ever else.

It was a sincere  gesture at the time but I donít want to see
Politics involved on the pitch of my team.

Aston Villa fans may not be perfect but let me tell you Iím proud of our multicultural city, fans that attend VP and general attitude towards other races compared to other clubs in the UK let alone Europe.

Arsenal plan to make 55 staff redundant because of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Gunners' first-team players and head coach Mikel Arteta agreed a 12.5% pay cut in April.

Arsenal's executive team also agreed to waive more than a third of their salaries over the next 12 months.

However, the club say they now face "more significant and longer-lasting reductions in our revenue than we all hoped".

Arsenal added they did not take the decision to propose redundancies "lightly" and had looked at "every aspect of the club and our expenditure before reaching this point".

"We know this is upsetting and difficult for our dedicated staff and our focus is on managing this as sensitively as possible," the club concluded in a statement.

The redundancies are in the football, commercial and administration departments, with the majority coming in the latter two.

There will also be cuts to staff benefits, capital projects and discretionary projects, but investments will continue to be made in the playing staff and Arsenal's transfer plans are unaffected.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) told BBC Sport it is looking for more information from the club to explain the plans.

In a statement, AST said it had hoped the players' wages cuts "would be used to ensure all Arsenal staff are looked after in these difficult times".

It added that it would be contacting the club to make sure that the staff let go "are given as much support as possible".

Arsenal, who won a record 14th FA Cup against Chelsea on Saturday, cited the loss of revenue from fans likely not being able to return to Emirates Stadium for the start of the 2020-21 season and only in limited numbers after that.

They said revenue from broadcasters, matchday and commercial activities had all been "hit severely" and that the club are facing one of the "most challenging periods" in their history.

The statement said agreed wage cuts and investment from owner Stan Kroenke had helped "reduce the impact of the pandemic on the club" and "maintain investment in the team".

However, they added: "It is now clear that we must reduce our costs further to ensure we are operating in a sustainable and responsible way, and to enable us to continue to invest in the team."

The proposals will now enter a 30-day consultation period.

Analysis
BBC sports editor Dan Roan

By becoming the first Premier League outfit to announce major job losses, Arsenal have issued a stark reminder of the unprecedented financial pressure that even big clubs find themselves under after a long period without matchday revenue, with less broadcast income than anticipated, and with the prospect of many months until grounds are back to full capacity.

At a time when the government is keen to see the Premier League do more to help lower league clubs survive the Covid-19 crisis, it also shows how difficult those negotiations could be.

However, many will ask whether it is right that so many lower-paid staff jobs are being lost at an estimated annual saving of around £2m when Arsenal are paying Mesut Ozil £350,000 per week, and are reported to have offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new £250,000-a-week contract.

The club have made clear that they have received "significant financial support" from owner Stan Kroenke for the refinancing of stadium debt. But it has not gone unnoticed that the American's wealth, already estimated at $8.3bn (£6.32bn), has reportedly increased by $400m (£305m) during the pandemic.

Arsenal will make the point that, despite an annual wage bill of around £230m, the players have agreed to a wage cut to do their bit, along with executives. And that at a time when there is no hospitality business for instance, that they have to prioritise their core product - the team - and make some tough choices.

But after both Spurs and Liverpool reversed their controversial decisions to put non-playing staff on furlough when the season was suspended amid fierce criticism from fans, it will be interesting to see if Arsenal stand firm or reconsider this move.

You could argue that they can't do much about paying Ozil what he's already due contractually and that keeping Aubameyang is important to maintain the squad. But when they do this to in their own words to 'reduce our costs', and then offer 32 year old Willian a 3-year £130k per week deal and try to sign Coutinho who I'm sure will be well above that, one can only come to the conclusion that they are a grotesque bunch of c**ts.

For 2020/21 season, post here. Scotland isn't the only league to have started, other powerhouses such as Bosnia, Belgium, Japan and Moldova have also done so.

Confusingly, there are two Champions Leagues running simultaneously, with the 2020/21 qualifiers having already began. Linfield's match was postponed as some of their Kosovar opponents tested positive for Covid.

Coutinho strikes me as a player who has won his medals, banked his money and is on the way down and possibly lacking motivation.

I suspect Arsenal were feeling the pinch even before Coronavirus. I am guessing they factor Champions League football into their budget and not competing in the Champions League will hit them hard.

Well considering they had supposedly £200million coming in during one year without Covid, then it kind of gives credence to him being normally good with financials. (or the fact he managed to get £175mil loan at 0.5% interest).

Anyway, I suspect all clubs have felt the pinch across the board and next year will have several clubs relegated from their respective divisions on financials I reckon. Unfortunately some of those will be gone for good.

Here in the Faroe Islands, there is an UCL game postponed from tuesday because a player was tested positive for Covid-19 from Slovan Bratislava. It was moved to tonight at 18, and they sent for their reserve team to play instead, but brought 5 players from their last game, where the 1st case was discovered, and when they arrived yesterday, they got tested and another case was found - so the whole team has been put into quarantine.

KÕ - Slovan Bratislava looks like cancelled (and should be KÕ that progress)

The five sub thing got voted down again today, thankfully.

Defeated 11-9 and according to everybody's "favourite" newspaper "Aston Villa led the backlash and opposition." Fair play!

Yes, but we shouldn't need to backlash, it's our bloody league, we invented it, and whatever is our choice should law.

Is this outright win markets?
Which matches are they please?
Perhaps France and England but I find tough on others tonight on will be winners?

I don't mind favouring
Gibraltar and Georgia for sure
Buy maybe North Macedonia and Montenegro too but not sure so on many of the nation's league outcomes

Or maybe you back draws or goals ?

No Grealish or Mings in the England starting eleven.  Instead, Southgate prefers a central midfielder in Dier playing at centre back, no proper left back by the looks of it, and Ward-Prowse gets a debut.  It's as poor a side as I have seen for a while for England.

Not to mention picking two right backs, neither of whom are even the best right-back in the country. Or putting Pickford in goal over Henderson and Pope, both of whom had much better seasons.

Unpopular opinion I know but I quite like Southgate as a person and don't think he's as bad a manager as he's made out to be. But that's a horrendous team selection.

Itís pretty basic stuff isnít it.
What England have needed is the ability to move players around in front of the penalty area with movement and quick passing.
Instead itís the get it outside, go inside , out wide again , go inside.

I only watched the highlights ...which is a contradiction in terms of what was shown. So the incidents of note included Ward Prowse trying to scuff up the penalty spot which Roy Keane quite rightly pointed out as cheating and which Ian Wright laughed off as being somehow quite clever if it was a really important game. I thought Wright had turned a corner from the twat he can sometimes be, obviously not. The Sterling penalty, he scored, fair enough but it was an awful penalty. He of all people should never have that job. The game was crying out for  a creative player who could make something out of nothing, win a free kick in a dangerous position, someone who could make space for Team mates. England needed someone like that.

On a point of law: Ward-Prowse scuffing the penalty spot should have warranted a yellow card, he was making additional markings to the pitch.  Can you remember the days when goalkeepers used to make marks on the six-yard line in line with the goalposts?  It was supposedly to give them positional awareness.  It has always been the law and punishable with a booking.

Is this outright win markets?
Which matches are they please?
Perhaps France and England but I find tough on others tonight on will be winners?

I don't mind favouring
Gibraltar and Georgia for sure
Buy maybe North Macedonia and Montenegro too but not sure so on many of the nation's league outcomes

Or maybe you back draws or goals ?
Who are the selections 270/1 sounds fun !
Thanks


I got lucky on backing national teams yesterday  - Saturday - myyself ! and hope to enjoy a steak meal today ! As well as donating.
I hadn't initially realised the later games of 745pm and had my concentration on the afternoon matches but when I did I added them.

England just won
North Macedonia
Gilbratar
Georgia
And also put in faves of Portugal France and Belgium
That was a good selection if I may so myself!

Where do I donate to h and v it's only fair especially as my request for women's football thread has seemingly been granted

What a great site and admin you are!

Just put £4 on a 270/1 accumulator for tonight's internationals. Can't see a single reason why I won't win.

Is this outright win markets?
Which matches are they please?
Perhaps France and England but I find tough on others tonight on will be winners?

I don't mind favouring
Gibraltar and Georgia for sure
Buy maybe North Macedonia and Montenegro too but not sure so on many of the nation's league outcomes

Or maybe you back draws or goals ?
Who are the selections 270/1 sounds fun !
Thanks


I got lucky on backing national teams yesterday  - Saturday - myyself ! and hope to enjoy a steak meal today ! As well as donating.
I hadn't initially realised the later games of 745pm and had my concentration on the afternoon matches but when I did I added them.

England just won
North Macedonia
Gilbratar
Georgia
And also put in faves of Portugal France and Belgium

Just put £4 on a 270/1 accumulator for tonight's internationals. Can't see a single reason why I won't win.

I ended up putting two bets on yesterday.

It would've only been one, but the day's first Clash of the Titans let me down in my 9 game acca. I'd abandoned all common sense and let my heart rule my head when I saw that if I went against the bookies and backed UEFA's lowest ranked side, San Marino, against the penultimately ranked side, Gibraltar, my odds rocketed to over 1000-1. 1-0 to the macaque wranglers. £1.50 I'll never see again.

Or maybe not...

That obviously effed me up still pretty early doors, so I had plenty of time to invest a further sure-fire £1.31 in the 7 later games, only for two second half goals, an OG and a penalty, in the second CotT, Azerbaijan vs Luxembourg, to once again save me from having to think about what to spend my winnings on.

Ah that makes sense, his team-mates were appalled that he was implying they had poor hygiene.

It just needs a bit of tweaking. Have a supporter picked at random to do the coaching. They'd have to have suitable experience, though, perhaps running a team themselves. And they'd need to know how to lecture people, so maybe they could be a teacher as well. Then we could also have them in charge of the flashing lights.

So, a teacher who runs football teams and could mess around with electricity. That sounds a winner to me.

From the Guardian live feed:

 "19 mins: A shot! Kasper Dolberg takes it from 18 yards or so, but the ball just clears the bar. Denmark won the ball after a long spell of England possession in which England at no stage looked to have any clue what to do with the ball except pass it to central defenders, or occasionally play it short to a midfielder who would then pass it to a central defender"

Post by: AllanW on September 08, 2020, 08:56:02 PM
Southgate is a fool.

As we can all see from that first half display he has picked a really poor formation and personnel to play against Denmark. In each phase of attacking or defending play we are guaranteed to be at least 2 people down because of the formation and the people selected to start.

When we have the ball the fact that we are playing 3 across the back means none of them are willing to step out of line so the ball goes back and forth. The two central midfielders are so devoid of passing and creative skills (like taking someone on and beating them, for example) that it is left to the 2 wide midfielders/wing-backs to link play. Which is very difficult because the 3 forwards are sticking rigidly in line well up the pitch. The result is plenty of possession to those back five but none more forward of this.

When we don't have the ball the 2 wide fowards press high and are bypasssed so easily it leaves us light in the centre of the park. And because the wingbacks/wide midfielders are sticking to their sidelines we leave a gaping hole for the Danish midfield to hold the ball without pressure in the centre of the park (Rice and Phillips are defensive midfielders and default to sitting deeply, too deeply) which means the Danish midfielders with the ball have time to pick their front runners easily and rush up in support for knockdowns, one-two's etc. Which also means that rather than having the play in front of them, our majestic defensive midfielders are spending half their time turning and chasing back because the play has already gone passed them.

It's a strategic and formation nightmare of catastrophic proportions. Even Smudger, the politist and most Establishment person on the planet felt compelled to state that England needed more creativity in midfield; someone to hold the ball, create a through pass in the middle or beat someone with skill. If even he can see that obviously it cannot have escaped the whole coaching staff of England.

Which only makes you think that Southgate is doing what he is doing SOLELY to make a point to Mings and Jack. Which makes him a fool. It also makes him an utter ******, to my mind.

I am actually at that stage with wanting them to lose.  Itís not just because of grealish.  Itís because of decisions like playing a midfielder with no PL experience because he plays for an overhyped club in Yorkshire, and that he plays him alongside Rice.  That he plays a right footed limited journeyman on the left of a three when itís so obvious a natural left footed player would be more effective.  And the way he talks in such a pseudo technical way when in fact heís as shit as he was in club management the horse faced waist coated twat.

Hardly a poor feat

Winning the toulon tournament with the squad he had wasn't anything like the massive achievement you're suggesting.

The structure meant the only decent teams we came up against were portugal and france and our squad of mostly 21-22 year olds were significantly more experienced than both of them. Interestingly we now have 3 members of that team playing for us with Targett and Hause joining Grealish. If the links to Swift ever come to anything that'll be 4 and many people on here would be interested in Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah as well.

I think I heard correctly in his post match interview that Southgate hailed these two games as a huge success.
Words such as stability, foundation, solid. All words that he said.
Itís greyscale at best with the ever so rare dash of colour, i.e that last 25 minutes out of 3 hours of football.
He can point to all of the excuses under the sun but to be so mind numbingly defensive in his approach is going to frustrate supporters and players alike.
Maybe weíll just bore opposition into submission?

You have been here long enough to know Villa match threads are separate but everything else is lumped here (Of on the "here's a laff" threads in other football).

But look at all this stuff have to trawl through !
Premier league season thread would make perfect sense.
Allows for discussion and debate on Premier league matters.

I mean with have VAR thread.
I like it when complex issues are solved simply .

So simply having a premier league discussion section could be a good idea for all concerned.

We can keep other games. But 'games' says to me other sports ! Really it should be called other matches. Or matches non villa .
Something which is nt confusing.

No. Accept it.

I had forgotten how bad championship football is.

that;s quite an observation after only 1 game

Iím referring to our time in it as well Dinas.  At the time I thought we were playing like Brazil 1970 looking back we were playing like a bra.

its all relative at the end of the day . quite happy in the championship at least we ain't got Warnocks hoof ball to contend with  these days  so that;s a bonus   :)

How quickly we forget and dismiss legends of the club eh.....? (wink).

Dosen't Neil Harris play pretty much exactly the same way? His Millwall side were also very direct v us and got some good results when we played them.

Watching the Fulham second leg you were just launching long throws into their box constantly which did cause Fulham lots of issues.

with almost the same players what do you expect . Hopefully we will change to a more passing game this season

I'd be surprised although that's not to say Harris isn't a good manager in the championship as he showed in the half season with you.

Surprised you sold Etheridge to SHA btw.

Brentford should have been awarded a penalty there.  Harley Dean had one aim in mind, to flatten his opponent with his forearm, which by doing so would enable him to be seen as 'winning the ball first.'  His attempt earlier on in the half, to cut the Brentford winger in half, should also have earned him a booking.

They do lack quality but do play some possession and press but would have them definitely struggling unless they address in this window with some top quality oven ready premier league players.

Would have loved Willian at Villa he's a class act. Free transfer and stands out , great pro and effortless.

I don't mind refs getting things wrong, they get 1 look and can only see it from 1 angle, there will always be mistakes. VAR is supposed to be there to help them even it out and last year that didn't happen. Today shows that it can do the job it was designed for and shows just how shit last years version was.

And given Bielsa's teams run themselves into the ground and are broken by March, they're going to need to have a very good first two-thirds of the season.

The Covid break was very useful for us, but for Leeds that rest is probably why they got promoted.

Fulham are miles and miles out their depth.

I'd feel sorry for them if it wasn't for the fact on same league competition as Villa .
We always seem to perform poorly at the cottage so hoping in a few Mondays we'll beat them!
They do lack quality but do play some possession and press but would have them definitely struggling unless they address in this window with some top quality oven ready premier league players.

Would have loved Willian at Villa he's a class act. Free transfer and stands out , great pro and effortless.
we were outclassed today but Arsenal will do that to lot of of lower premiership clubs, thatís the last time we play a so-called top top six  side until December,

I stupidly listened to a bit of 606 earlier. There was a hyperventilating Geordie on there saying that it was ridiculous to say that Newcastle fans didn't care about human rights in Saudi Arabia. A supporters' club had invited Saudi human rights groups to speak to them to hear about the situation there. After listening, they voted 97%-3% in favour of the takeover, so how could anyone say the didn't care?

Phone-ins give him his only opportunity to ever speak to people less intelligent than he is.

West Ham have been so poor, as things stand they're now my favourites for relegation. I know it's only 1 game but I can't think of anything positive for them to build on here.

Newcastle are fully 'Bruced' now, awful team but will scrape together enough points to keep the fans from calling for his head until someone snaps and throws vegetables at him.

As an away fan I always found West Ham's old ground the most intimidating to visit.

Watching MOTD I see that our old captain Stuart Gray is on the coaching staff at Fulham. He scored the late equalizing goal against Boro at Villa Park in 1989 that ended up keeping us up. I was also there for what I think was his debut at Bradford when we won 4-2 in a top of the table clash. I think he and Andy Gray II both made their Villa debuts that day and Stuart Gray scored two and Birch & McInally scored the other goals. I think going into the game Bradford were top and we were second and our win took us top.

I had a choice that weekend and went for a camping trip with the now Mrs TD.  In the subsequent weeks before heading back for my final year at uni I saw us beat Luton, then went away for a fortnight in Greece where I paid over the odds for The Sun to find out three days after the event that we'd been thrashed at Forest and had just about got off the plane at Elmdom before witnessing the Steve Hodge Norwich game.

I've said it before, but Almiron is just the worst "luxury" player in the league. My 8-year-old could beat him in a physical duel, no pace, and I've yet to see him beat a player. I do like Andy Carroll though. If he weren't made of glass he could have been an ace "bullocking" striker for England against opponents who "don't like it up 'em".

West Ham look absolutely atrocious too. Moyes a dead cert for first manager fired.

I think he'll have a good season
10+ goals.
Expecting plenty maybe more for Leicester in the match.
Perhaps a 1-4 or 2-4 score line.
WBA overall are weak but the front 3 are very decent.

Fascinated to see how Sawyers gets on this season and Ajayi. Pereira too good for them
But when you have Gibbs Bartley and Livermore in team should really be getting updated as rather ineffective if only experienced now .

Good luck Robinson.
I think he scores but Leicester to put them away as really out of depth

Everton's James Rodriguez hasn't got the best of injury records.

63 games in three years at Porto
85 games in six years at Real Madrid
43 games in two years at Bayern

A total of 191 games in eleven years at an average of 17 games a season.
Certainly at Real at least that low figure is also because he wasn't getting picked.

Itís funny youíve said that as Iíve heard a couple of really obvious and quite bad ones recently that theyíve glossed over and not mentioned. So as you said, hopefully, yes.

I'd be amazed if Vardy has another season scoring 20+ goals. He's 33 and starting to pick up more injuries and a packed fixture list won't help.

Only another 18 to go, people still knock him but he has been shit hot for over 5 yrs now . Great player

Not knocking him, just got the impression last year was an Indian summer.

I agree to an extent, I'm not sure him scoring 2 penalties today does a lot to prove you wrong either. We'll see but he definitely appears to be picking up more niggles and given how reliant on pace he is that's a bad sign.

Been saying Kane is past his peak and should step for England.
He's in the way , ineffective and lumberous.
Yet many were saying he's world 👀class??
He's nowhere near.

Likes of Calvin -Letwin don't get a look in because Kane is blocking path
He should move along.

Strikers now need to be flexible and fluid .
Play as wide forwards and central. Kane is limited and hold England back.

Clearly unfit and struggling for form for a long time now.

Yes he's a class apart that anyone else on the pitch.

I had to laugh when some folk here thought all he has done is score goal of the world cup a few years ago.

Oh my. He was top scorer and has one of the best left foots around.
He's actually borders world class. And is proven at very highest level.
When people dismissed him on here they had no idea or just a limited knowledge of James.

Apart from the last three games of the season, when he scored 5 goals in 3 games?!  His biggest non-scoring streak was 3 games last season.  I wish we had a forward 'struggling for form' as badly as that.

Same with Alan, the chap they signed from Napoli-we definitely lack tenacity and physicality in the middle of the park. For all their good points, Luiz and McGinn are a bit weak.

Everton are in much better position than us right now.

Mostly wastefully. But weíre really a few years behind them in who we can attract. Still, last season as shit as we were we should have taken 6 points off them.

I'm not sure how that matters? I was talking about how people have reacted to his performance not how he performed (as I said, it was a very good debut).

He has to be compared to players like KDB and Jack and at their best they do a lot of work in the final 3rd. Watching the game yesterday I don't think that was the case with James, he got on the ball around halfway and moved it around nicely but most of his good work was crossfield passes into the huge gap that Matt Doherty was leaving.

I think he'll improve but they didn't sign him to look neat and tidy and around the halfway line.

There were none, I asusme the 3 you were talking about though are:

There's one about as 3rd in which was massively overhit.
Then there's what I would say was more of a cross from deep which Richarlison was never going to score from.
For the 3rd I can only think you mean the pass right at the end which was in no way defence splitting.

Again, I'm not saying it was a poor debut, I'm saying that he's been signed to do what KDB/Jack/Bruno Fernandes do, which is to open teams up and create chances. I don't think he did that yesterday. His performance reminded me a lot of how Foden played for England last week. It looked pretty but he had no major impact on the match.

I think Fulham and Albion will score a fair few goals this season but I also think they will concede quite a few too. I think Leeds will be the opposite. Despite their goal fest of a game on Saturday I think they will be a similar side to Sheffield United last season and keep it tight at the back and nick wins by the odd goal or two but I don't think they will finish in the top half like Sheffield United did. My tips for the drop this season are three from Fulham, Albion, Brighton and Palace.

Despite their goal fest of a game on Saturday I think they will be a similar side to Sheffield United last season and keep it tight at the back and nick wins by the odd goal or two but I don't think they will finish in the top half like Sheffield United did. My tips for the drop this season are three from Fulham, Albion, Brighton and Palace.

I think Palace will be fine. Eze and Batshuayi are good signings, and if they get Benrahma too that is a very decent front 3, irrespective of Zaha leaving.

Sheffied United are one of a number of teams who have "ponderous" attacks and hope to scratch a result through defensive solidity. Chasing a game, and they're able to call on McGoldrick, the striker that their fans love, but who, crucially, just doesn't score. And Billy Sharp wasn't a PL-level striker when he was 24, much less 34.

Shit! Now I'm worried.
Palace are organised and savvy. Have plenty of counter attack threat and with Roy there ll be ok.

Sheffield United and Brighton seem to be melting like ice cream in attacks it's like the goal is to warm and they melt out .

Sheff Utd strikers in particular look some of the weakest in league.
Brighton are also looking weak in attack.

So that WBA , Fulham,  Leeds with weak defence
And Brighton and Sheff Utd with weak attacks.

The only think WBA and Leeds have going for them is their managers .

I don't think Potter at Brighton is premier league level.

West Ham as well, they've not added anything to their squad since last year and stayed up mostly because Antonio had a purple patch at just the right time. On top of that there's clearly shit going on behind the scenes.
Albion just don't have the players to stay up, and West Ham seem to be having quite a bit of internal turmoil and didn't have a particularly strong team to begin with. To me, those two are the most likely to go down, plus one other from about half a dozen teams.

I have never wanted to see some team fail so badly
Wankfest indeed and man buns !!!

Haha. I never really had a problem with clubs like Leeds or Wolves. Small clubs who never do anything of note, a few mates who support them, tinpot stadiums etc etc.

But of late, both irritate me more than I should allow. Twitter's fault; absolutely crawling with their pre pubescent fans. Utter pond life, spewing twattish phrases like 'banter', 'dub', 'levels', 'scenes', 'limbs', 'saltiness'..the list goes on. I wish liquidation on both.

Before we get too smug, what if the extra week of competitive football that Palace have had is mainly responsible for this result? We are also playing our first proper competitive game of the season on Monday.

And while I hate ManU with a passion, whenever no-mark teams get these kinds of results against them it makes me the more upset that we never seem to be able to.

Palace will always do reasonably well against the teams regularly featuring at the top. Those teams play a high line as they expect to keep possession. It's against the teams that sit back they fail, there is little guile or killer pass in the team. Now if you had a team with a grealish and some pace, well that's a different scenario.

Well it does help if football can provide some solace these days.

Agree and as "modern football" as it is (with all that entails) if we can consolidate and build in the PL the playoff win and staying up on the last day may prove to be significant results in our history (especially with owners who don't seem merely content to make up the numbers).

I'm curious as to where this love in comes from. Is it because they hadn't been in the Premier League for a number of years? Would it be the same if Forest, Sheffield Wednesday or Oldham came up again? Is it because of Bielsa?

It certainly can't be because of their players. Maybe it's because of Noel Whelan or Michael Bridges. God only knows. Possibly due to Patrick Bamford's film star looks. It's a mystery on par with that of the Marie Celeste.

Brighton full back - Lamptey. Never heard of him before but heís absolutely bossing the game and murdering Saint Maximin and whoever the Newcastle full back is.

Looks like a great buy. Theyíve just said he turned down an offer of a new contract at Chelsea before moving. Itís hard not to compare him to Matty Cash. At the moment I know who I would prefer, hope it changes.

Lampard seems to have a bit of a mental block about Mount. At half-time, he decides to take off Havertz who had had a good first half; leaving 2 strikers on the pitch. Mount is a one-trick pony, IMHO, and most managers would have taken one of their front men off to keep more depth in the middle.
Well, Chelsea are paying for it, and this could be 4 or 5 by the end (particularly with Tomori on the pitch!).

Watching City shows the GULF between us and them - not one of our first 11 would get close to being in Cityís first 11. And itís not just the fancy stuff - they do the hard dirty work incredibly well too.

Getting into top 10 will be difficult, competing with this lot is going to have to wait years

That being a team who've spent a billion pounds plus and the past ten years competing for the title. Of course it's not going to happen quickly.

When Champions played Champions.

And to be honest the Champions league now doesn't always give the best teams in the final.
Bayern Munich v PSG were their national league champions and the best 2 performing teams this year and was worthy final.

My Leeds mate claimed  Ben White was the next best thing well both he and Lamptey were exposed for the players that they are currently . Learning their trade and understanding tactical discpline and art of defending.

Lamptey way upfield , good fun attacking but ropey defensively a poor cross by him saw Fernandes play a ridiculous weighted pass to Rashford. And Ben white was made a mug . Fair enough going well in the  championship with Leeds but this is next level and I don't really see White as good as Konsa.

Konsa for me is an excellent defender.

True. Its striking a correct balance between ManU having a disastrous season and them gifting points to the teams in our mini-league. Brighton to win, Man u in the bottom 4, season cancelled and positions stand.

Rashford will make a mug of a few EPL defenders - because he's a super footballer.
You seem quick to write players off, Footy: White and Lamptey may or may not make the upper echelons of excellence, but alot of people - people better qualified than you and me - rate them very highly. As Konsa and Luiz found last season, it takes a while to get up with the pace.

If you look carefully, the ref was whistling for full time about a second after the handball. So, in the context of things, the decision for the penalty was strictly speaking correct. However, he should have blown for full time at least 30 seconds before that incident. If that had happened against us I would have been furious.

United look like a midtable side with some top level players. There's no real snap in their attacking play, no real structure, just some hope that someone will do something inspired or they can catch someone on the break. The problem? Solskjaer is about as far away from a top level manager as possible, and they should ditch him for Pochettino yesterday (though obviously I hope they don't). Jack was lucky not to go there.

Think it's benefiting us when we're actually leading games. Arsenal game for last 20 minutes would've been paranoia central with a full crowd just waiting for us to concede. Instead we saw it out reasonably comfortably.

Thought the real scandal in the Man. United game was the ref giving 5 minutes added time, Brighton scoring in the last 10 seconds of that and then another 90 seconds being found from nowhere to give Man. United time to win a corner, wait 30 seconds for likes of Maguire to come up for it and it to get taken (seen many games abroad when a ref will blow for FT after they give a corner).

Apparently it swung out of play aswell?

On the break where there's space they have it, and sometimes the individuals find a way, either individually or in combination. Against massed defences though their attacking lacks the sense that they've planned for this crazy situation, which is why they remind me of a midtable side.

Lampard looks like believed his own hype when he was using someone else's squad but now his inexperience is showing because this is a team that have been coached against a team that only met for the first time in the changing room.

Also this sort of performance is why I don't think Tammy is worth the £50m-ish they'd be asking for, he's barely touched the ball and wasted the chances he's had.

Oh, and Mason Mount has been fucking shit as well.

I am guessing God invented a trampoline just so Jesus could bounce back.

As for them singing that song for "A good 25 years" I would suggest they may have been singing it for that amount of time but it hasn't necessarily been a "good" 25 years.

I grew up in Smethwick and had a few friends who were part-time Albion fans.  I went along to the Brummie Road with them for an evening game against Liverpool, early 1978-79 season and that's the first time I heard them sing it. Think they lost 1-0 (Dalglish). Heard it on and off on TV afterwards, not sure I've ever heard them sing it when playing us.

just a random question about formations

what is the difference if there is one between a
5-3-2 where the full backs are playing as wing backs and going forward when possible to help in attack whilst also performing their defensive duties

and a
3-5-2 where the wide midfielders are dropping back to help out the defence when needed

Choice of personnel? - the former might be more defenders chosen vs the latter, where more attacking players are asked to do some defensive duties.

What's the most goals conceded in a Premier League season?
Swindon conceded exactly 100 in 93/94 in a 42 game season. I made lot of money on that as I bet on an accumulator that was Swindon to get relegated, finish bottom and concede 100 or or more goals. This was nearly impossible but short price at 150/1 due to the fact that they were odds on for bottom position. They had conceded 95 by the time last game was played. They played Leeds at home and got beat 5-0 with Danny Wallace scoring 4. The reason I bet on 100 was because they conceded something like 68 during their promotion season and Hoddle left them to take over at Spurs before the start of the season I think.

just a random question about formations

what is the difference if there is one between a
5-3-2 where the full backs are playing as wing backs and going forward when possible to help in attack whilst also performing their defensive duties

and a
3-5-2 where the wide midfielders are dropping back to help out the defence when needed

On the pitch nothing. If you're playing either and have a decent amount of possession they're wide midfielders, if you're on the back foot it's a 5.

The real problem with it is if you're up against a 433 where the front 3 are spread wide and the full backs are getting up the pitch you end up with your wing backs getting over-loaded.

At times we've complained about our lack of options on the bench but it hasn't been like this Burnley team (unintentionally) since October/November under Houllier when we had half a squad out injured.

WBA Callum Robinson 1 down 9 to go in my prediction of 10+ goals this season.

I wouldnít class a league cup round two tie against a teams just promoted to league 2, as a goal in top flight career classification.

Had he being playing for Preston v tonights opposition he probably would have banged in a hatrick.

Chelsea  good enough for you ? 2 super goals.
Callum Robinson  3 down 7 to go.

2 excellent finishes , uses both feet and WBA struggle up top when he went off.
Can't help but be impressed . And I'll always maintain happy to have him back at Villa as part of squad.
Hes useful.
Loved his celebration.

Am watching too and much as I think they have a mystifying number of penalties for me that was a penalty as Maupay was wafting his hand in the air looking like a man hailing a taxi.

I am convinced that if the Connolly non penalty had been Rashford, for example, being upended by Dunk then it would have been given.

Hodgson got it spot on tonight saying the rulemakers are taking the enjoyment out of football. Once upon a time there was thing called intentional handball, not if yer arms were at a certain level or by your side. I hope Smith is telling our players to just boot the ball at the defenders arms in the penalty area, if there's not a shot on or a pass. What with penalties after the final whistle lark, surely Association Football is our intellectual property and we can take it back off the UEFA/FIFA fuckers. I mean usually you have to pay a fortune to bugger up someone else's  franchise.

Palace upped it second half, they starved Rodriguez, and I didn't think them equalising would have been an injustice.

I also saw a fair bit of the Wycombe game earlier. I dunno what's worse to be subjected to, VAR or Championship refereeing.

A big issue I have with VAR is that it's implemented and adjudicated by serving referees, so all those week to week inconsistencies of interpretation we'd all moaned about and hoped VAR would eradicate are now inflicted on us with potentially every decision.

A big difference between how it's used in other sports compared to football is that in those others, it's almost exclusively used to judge what's happening/happened with the ball. In football, they're attempting to judge the player.

Cricket and tennis have exact reasons for it. Is it a out? And with the speeds involved there is a need for it. Football could be used in a certain way but in football it is being used for many reasons.

Both Rugby Codes does look at multiple options but only IF the onfield ref asks for it. In football they are reffing everything that happens on the video and tell the ref to change their mind afterwards.

So the way VAR is used does take the main reffing off the field. The BBC mentioned today that there was an offside that was massively obvious but the lines person did not flag. And the reason they did not flag is they have been told not to because if it leads to a goal, VAR can then check the offside, and if it doesn't then oh well play can carry on. No other sport who uses Video replays gives it that much power over on field live play.

If this is right why didnít our goal vs a Crystal Palace count last season? They main reason given at the time was the ref had blown for full time so they couldnít do anything about it.

It wasn't the final whistle I don't think, he'd whistled to indicate Grealish had dived so the game should have stopped. As I understand it, Maupay handled just before the final whistle blew so still happened during the game?

I haven't seen the incident so perhaps it isn't fair for me to comment but, is it known that the referee actually blew to signal full-time?  Was it audible?  If so then he is in error (unless the law has changed).  If he was about to blow then the game is still 'live' and the penalty was correct.

Two things here that have to be remembered, in football, the referee is the sole judge of time; no one else.  Secondly, the only time in a game that play can be extended and by that I don't mean added time due to loss of time through injury, substitution etc, I mean extra time after the full ninety minutes playing time has elapsed is, for the taking of a penalty kick.  I hope that makes sense and gives a small insight into the scenario.

My understanding is although the ref blew for full time the incident has occurred in the play before. So was then brought back.

I watched it. Corner comes in, Fat Head nods it across, appeals, its cleared off the line, the referee blows the full time whistle, Yanited swarm the referee, he reviews it and awards a penalty after the game has finished. It was a penalty, but the game should have finished before Man United got into the box to be awarded a corner.

Let's face it. When it comes to Man Yanited normal rules don't apply. Keep playing until they get their way. The spectre of Fergie still looms large. However the fact that it happened to that horrible little twunt Maupay makes up for it.

That is exactly the point.  The awarding of the penalty was correct as it happened before he blew the whistle.  What no one seems to want to explain is why when five minutes was signalled as added on time and Brighton equalised in the fifth minute of that time, the game continued for another four minutes.  How many times have you seen the other team just be allowed to kick off before the whistle is blown straight away?  There is no explanation for playing another four minutes.
