The greatest league in the known universe kicked off 20 minutes ago, you chumps.
We are indeed chumps.
Early contender for bottle job of the weekend on that back pass decision.
Top of the league!
no real feelings either way. bloody love the way they've/martinez have gone about the stones situation though. and when pretty much everything that football fans do is annoying these days, that chant's not grown old yet.
whats happening to chelsea is glorious, obviously
I know everyone but Everton has a a game to catch them up but, you know, that even includes Sunderland.
he'll have to spend big!
Another Cook brain fart. Stanislas and King starting, both sub championship shite 4-0 Norwich
I'd swear Navas does it on purpose now.
sorry guys :(
With Sterling and Silva out, and Aguero limping off, we needed someone to say something like that.
(also: who the fuck scored your goal?)
First of what could be several of the kids from the academy who will hopefully start to break through this season.
Urgh. Goal shouldn't be allowed to stand.
means that the Elbow Storm is unleashed in the 9 shirt. The philosophy in action.
That's who Michael Oliver looks like, it's Colin Hanks. Been annoying me for ages, that.
Get is so fucking far round you Chelsea
Best league in the world.
Fuck off Bournemouth
Or is there a real intensity in the 'smuggest' supporters awards this year?
steaming turd of a match, especially when Mignolet and Skertl are playing like comedy double agents, but you have to wonder how long it's going to be before Brendan figures out there was a reason City didn't put Milner in the centre of midfield much.
Since getting to regularly play where he wants to play was one of the main reasons he moved.
Can imagine him as one of those blokes in camp who stands either side of Chuck D when Public Enemy play live.
I'd be quite pleased if we binned that entire lot off and started again from scratch. Benteke looks like he's going to be one of those "aside from the goal" type strikers who does absolutely nothing except scoring about 10 a season, and honestly there's not enough quality in the rest of the team to carry someone like that. Quite what Sakho must have done to be behind Skrtel and Lovren in the pecking order is anyone's guess too.
Was poor today and still scored a great goal. His hold-up play's really good and he's crying out for people to run beyond him, which neither Fermino or Ings ever did.
It is a disquietingly poor Liverpool side though. It's not just Suarez - feels like they've degraded themselves in virtually every position in comparison to a few years back.
With no-one running in from the middle it's too easy for fullbacks to nullify the Benteke threat by just staying fairly tight to the "wingers" (Ings is about as much of a winger as Kuyt was, although I'm not convinced that's a bad thing). Can and Lucas gave it their best shot but neither are really box-to-box players.
so much more than a goalscorer
When Pellers told him to get the hell out of his technical area.
looking like a good bit of business.
just like, tell him he's still the commentator and let him have his day out every week, but his mic isn't switched on and there's someone really good sitting a few rows behind him that the bbc have (like wrighty or lawro) doing the actual commentary.
motty is still the champ.
Benteke's was a total wonder goal, motherfucking WOOF. Probably one of the best I've seen. Martial forced a chance and took it well (and by all accounts didn't even want to touch the ball apart from that). Benteke gets a ribbing for his all round contribution and Martial gets a commentatorgasm and gibbering platitudes in the studio. Fucking hate tele sometimes
and a set of commemorative stamps when Rooney shinned his one in against City. Pricks.
of Shearer and Wright, they might as well just film a couple of empty chairs in future. Be a hell of a lot cheaper for the same level of insight.
From the goal line technology/ball hitting post interface confusion
Relegated promptly, cheers.
but they are the epitomy of small time. They make me cringe every time I see their name.
Commentator insisted on saying 'Football Club Barcelona' every time he mentioned their name. What's with that?
Also Martial is clearly the best teenager in the world and Woodward is a genius for signing him, cheap at half the price etc.
it's so games like this don't end up being given extended coverage on MOTD2.
I'm a glutton for punishment, that game was so dull and I can't see the next one being any better.
We never looked like scoring until a freak penalty and red card. It's irritating that Freedman doesn't seem to have recognised that we were again completely toothless in attack.
We can hopefully stay out of trouble until Assombalonga, Fryatt, Reid and Cohen all return. Might have a chance of a top ten finish!!!
only Villa thought Richards was worth a punt on a free.
Sanchez and Drinkwater put two of the most inept performances I've ever seen in. Like a baby deer that's been kneecapped, truly horrendous. Ryad Mahrez is some player though, I literally never noticed him last year :s
Inter trying their hardest to wind him up, too.
but Allardyce isn't a bad pundit.
Pundit, manager, whatever. Always comes across as a decent guy IMO.
