are a-coming this season
Norwich 5-2 Barnet!
we eased off - got an important game on Saturday! Need to be in peak condition - no point trying to win a game already won. We could have beaten them ten or twelve!
but it's a shocking start
I think it's a fight between Everton, Tottenham, Blackburn and Man City for fifth
but I hope not
i might have to sell berbatov and thudd in fantasy football unless they start to play up soon.
I think I am now officially as high as I will ever be on all the leagues I'm part of.
I treat mine as a purely mathematical exercise.
Seriously though, they looked horribly disjointed last night going forward. As they did on Saturday as well. They started really poorly last season and finished in a European spot. They won't challenge the top 4 by losing games at Sunderland and at home to Everton though.
All this about the defence but I disagree
Jenas is terrible
then Arteta must be worth £20 million.
One of the best midfielders in the Premier League. fact.
in the top 6, for sure.
Remember, they haven't played Derby, Birmingham, Fulham, Wigan, Middlesbrough, West Ham or Bolton yet!
but you're right.
Soon we'll have a midfield of Cahill, Fernandes, Arteta and one of Jagielka / Osman / Pienar / Carsley (dependent on the opposition).
have a fine 14 or so, but if there's injuries you have to wonder....
Arteta is quality. If he was to get injured though, that's 75% of Everton's creativity gone.
he's absolute quality and has the potential to be better than Arteta. Also, Pienaar is a quality player, very skilful, I think it's just a question of whether he can adapt to the Premiership.
However, agree that Arteta is currently dictating how Everton play. Seemed last night both Malbranque (what a terrible player) and Jenas tried to kick him out of the game a bit.
I like Zokora and Huddlestone
Don't know what Jol is doing
a top four side around the likes of Tainio, Jenas and Malbranque. Zokora's alright, Huddlestone has potential. As for their back up defenders - Stalteri? Rocha? Gardner? Awful. Having four players who could get 60 goals between them up front is pointless if you're going to concede 70.
he is ON FIRE. not my captain though :(
Hudd though - i've got him too, ut he doesn't seem to be playing! Will he be given a chance to establish himself do you reckon? or is he destined to warm the bench this season?
Arteta was on fire last night. He's a joy to watch sometimes.
Possibly a little inconsistent though. Last season anyway.
I will walk to Reading with an erection
macclesfield 0 - 1 Leeds
we're on -12 points already
are the England of the Premiership.
