    Default Premier League 18/19

    Starts today.

    I hope you're all as excited as I am.

    I'm a little bit disappointed United didn't sign some more players but life goes on. City still the team to beat, Liverpool most overrated team by far and getting that many new signings to gel will be hard. Spurs did well to keep hold of all their players but I can see them struggling a bit. No idea what to expect from Chelsea or Arsenal.

    I reckon only two people here give even the remotest shit about the Premier League.

    I have no horse in the race, I support a Championshit (not a typo) team. So consider me a PL neutral. I hope it's between City, Liverpool and Spurs. Arsenal and Chelsea, let's see how they play under new management, but I'm not optimistic. Utd... shite. I would really like to see them struggle to get momentum, if only so Jose gets the boot sooner.

    Liverpool are not overrated. They are the second best team in the Prem, and they might have just gotten better. They're the ones most likely to challenge City.

    I'd like to see Spurs do it though just to silence all the people who think they have lost ground just because they didn't buy anyone. Spurs will be equally as strong as last seaon, perhaps more so because key players are approaching their peak, in particular Kane and Eriksen, maybe Alli too.

    If Utd play good attacking football, I'll be happy to see them do well. If they go 1-0 and then park the bus, fuck them.

    Dark horse this season will be Wolves, imo. I expect top half at least, possibly pushing for Europe. They destroyed the Champ last season, they had quality players and have strengthened. They might be better than Burnley and Everton.

    Championship will be dull this season. The three relegated teams will all go back up. All three have appointed really good managers. Swansea have possibly taken the biggest risk, but I rate Potter really highly. I'm biased though because I went to the same school as him, he was in my Brother's year. But he did great things in Sweden. Then again, so did Roy Hodgson.

    Stoke and West Brom though, they will be strong. Leeds, Derby and Villa (spit) will also push. Birmingham will do better this year, but I'm hardly expecting great things. Just avoiding another relegation battle will do just fine.

    I'm starting to understand why a fight always breaks out whenever people try to follow soccer.

    Just reading this shit hurts.

    Yeah and about two people give a shit about any other thread lol.

    United should be good tbh we weren't bad last year and Fred could actually fix a spot we've had a big issue with. I don't know enough about him though.

    I always like to see Spurs do well and keeping their players is good but no new blood in the dressing room can be a real issue. Especially when a lot of other teams have strengthened.

    I really like Klopp and Salah is obviously brilliant but a lot of their other players are massively over-rated and new signings need time and it's unlikely that so many work. I hope they are strong it's always better when there are 4 or so teams genuinely challenging for the title.

    Oh look, Man Utd take the lead inside 5 minutes, still 1-0 after an hour. There's a fucking surprise.

    edit - Why are Leicester bringing on Vardy after an hour? What the fuck is he doing on the bench?

    I assume you aren't watching because it's been a really good game so far.

    Iheanacho has the potential to be really good. You'll probably just find Vardy isn't fully fit/been with the team long enough to start. Leicester have looked really good in posession and United would have had a few more goals if Alexis wasn't incredibly wasteful.

    No, not watching. I will watch a Utd game soon so I'm not basing my opinion on last season.

    I feel for Mourinho today his team have just decided to be absolute shit. Just completely and utterly bottled it under the tiniest bit of pressure.

    How do you not blame the manager for that? Either he's losing the tactical battle, or his players aren't performing to the level they should be. Either way, it's the manager's problem, it's his job to get the tactics right, and to ensure his players are properly motivated. Are they any better second half?

    It isn't losing the tactical battle and it isn't that players aren't motivated or performing over a period of time. It's that Bailly has actively decided to be utterly shit today.

    And not particularly.

    I mean if one, maybe two players are not on their game, I guess there's not much the manager can do other than sub them.

    But if the team are playing shit... Utd have some really good players and so if they're playing shit as a team, that's either tactics or motivation. Probably a bit of both.
