EPL 2017/2018



  • @Rocky-Rockbottom said in EPL 16/17:

    Think I heard the diving this season is now going up to a post-match tribunal for further punishments? Hoo fucken ray

    There I was, determined not to get sucked into the Premier league melodrama this year, having read all about the money and greed and bullshit surrounding the thing, so what happens on Unemployed Monday, I sit down and watch replays of the opening 4 games, in their entirety, back to back, 1pm to 7pm. Moran. Plenty of goals though, great stuff. Turns out the time you enjoy wasting is not actually wasted at all. Who knew.

    Arse 4 Leicester 3 jesus what a great game. Terrible result but should never have been that close. Leicester with only 3 shots on target. 3 goals.

    Chelsea with a colossal fuckup oh God fucking hell on toast it was great. Fabregas throwing a sook, coach throwing an epi, Sideshow Bob having a derailed 90 minute spacco, HT 0-3 down at home to Burnley? Fahhk. With Spurs doing the business and Liverpool stuffing it up vs Watford that’s a yes. Mignolet a hapless dwarf. What happened to the wafty-haired Aryan goalie they brought in to replace him? The new Egyptian is bloody good though, making runs like a maniac. New red strip looks like a throwback to the days of Hansen and Rush and Dalglish. Didn’t even realise the colour had changed from them old days until I saw what it used to look like.

    ManU looked vaguely terrifying.

    Man C also. Fuck them. Mansheikster Sheiky.



  • Chris Wood's move to the Premier League has been confirmed.

    A 4-year deal with Burnley for a club record fee (NZ$26M).

    I hope he goes well. Just not next weekend, they're playing spurs I think πŸ˜‰



  • @canefan A home win at Wembley?



  • @Bovidae yeah....



  • Wheels are starting come loose over at Spurs in the EPL. Playing great European footy but to lose to The Arsenal then draw on the weekend and currently down 2-0 at Leicester.



  • Man City win the Manchester derby 2-1 so now have an 11 pt lead. That is also 14 consecutive wins - a record.

    The Christmas-New Years period can make or break a campaign but it is hard to see Man City losing the title from here.



  • So Citeh will win the league at a canter but will not be undefeated. Sounds like a cracking match at Anfield with Klopp (and Kop) almost exploding at the end.

    1 point from two games - they're runbbish that City

    While The Arsenal are utter rubbish this season, it is very pleasing to me that City won't equal Arsenal's undefeated season.



  • When I saw the Bournemouth result, for the first time ever, I thought; Arsene it's past time to go.

    Really should have called it a day after his last FA Cup triumph but it appears he's an addict.

    Funny! So did I. With Sanchez going we need a new leader there

    Nah I hope he stays a while longer πŸ˜‰



  • How do Liverpool manage to look so unstoppable and then come crashing down against the lower teams? The real battle is looking like the top 4 at the moment.

    Man C 65
    Man U 53
    Chelsea 50
    Liverpool 47

    Spurs 45
    Arsenal 42



  • @kiwipie this morning's result is the most Liverpool thing ever. Beat City one week, lose to the bottom side a week later. It's what they do, and why they will never win the league.

    Really lop-sided league this year, with the top 6 light years ahead of everyone else. No one from 9th down is safe from relegation, and they would all deserve it.



  • Classic Arsenal!

    Getting thumped away from home 3-1 against bottom of the league.



  • no longer bottom of the league. Back-to-back wins against top 6 opponents and they are out of the drop zone!



  • @mariner4life said in EPL 2017/2018:

    They were earlier today until Arsenal gifted them 3??



  • Plenty of activity as the transfer window closed this morning.

    • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joins Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund.
    • Olivier Giroud goes to Chelsea from Arsenal.
    • Michy Batshuayi goes to Dortmund on loan.
    • Islam Slimani has moved on loan to Newcastle United
    • Badou Ndiaye has joined Stoke from Galatasaray.
    • Lucas Moura transfers from PSG to Spurs

    @hooroo

    I hope Sanchez got booed this morning.

    Winning vs Spurs was easier in an Arsenal shirt. πŸ˜‰



  • @rocky-rockbottom One wonders when Pool will purchase themselves a competent keeper.



  • @rocky-rockbottom Top match report that one - no need at all for me to watch the highlights!



  • The similarities for the Liverpool - Spurs match to Ireland France rugby were there ... not much happened until about 15 mins to go then it ALL happened!

    I don't really care for either club, so happy to see a 2-2 draw.



  • @rocky-rockbottom said in EPL 2017/2018:

    Hell of a day lined up on the sofa here.

    9am-12.pm: NBA Clippers vs Pistons
    1pm-9.pm: Rugby Brisbane 10's.
    9pm-11.pm: Soccer Spurs vs Arsenal

    14 hours of total inertia. Godspeed the vortex.

    I hope Blake rips them a new one!



  • @rocky-rockbottom nice summation. Harry could have easily scored 2 or 3 so I'm glad that we won the game because Lacazette missed a sitter. Arsene's comments prematch about players who dive were interesting considering his new lady boy Micky was the best diver on show in the NLD



  • @rocky-rockbottom there must have been a grassy knoll



  • Hi Arsenal fans. Season is proper done now. Lost 0-3 to City twice in 5 days, 10 points off 4th with 10 games to play. Must be just about time to go on a positive run of form to secure Arsene another year aye?



  • @mariner4life Surely SURELY he won't be there next season. This has been a disaster, even for Arsenal recent times



  • As close to Burnley as they are to Chelsea

    Really lop-sided table this year. After it looked like the whole league was "leveling out" the top 5 (or generously, 6) have pulled away again. Nice and tight at the top, and the bottom, but that bottom starts at 7. And the gap is massive.

    Edit: Actually, that's rose tinted. Nice and tight 3rd to 5th. First has already finished the race.



  • I'm happy to assist Man City winning the title. πŸ˜‰

    Wenger has to be gone soon as there has been talk of a player revolt. Fuck knows who the replacement could be. Brendan Rodgers - don't make me laugh. Celtic is his level. Joachim LΓΆw is an interesting name mentioned.



  • @bovidae appointing Loew would involve Arsenal writing off another season. He's not coming until after the World Cup, and that's not enough time to evaluate the squad, change tactics, and make trades. And you can't do much in January because it's too expensive.

    If they are going to move, they need to move now, and get someone lined up. Zero point waiting until the end of the season, what will that achieve? Top 4 is gone (Wenger wouldn't get them there anyway). They won't come 7th. Make the move you spineless gits.



  • @mariner4life

    The board should be looking offshore. Luis Enrique is available and so is Thomas Tuchel. The latter was always mentioned as a possible replacement when he was still the manager of Borussia Dortmund.



  • @bovidae nah, Arsene will come right, just give him another season.... πŸ˜‰

    Personally I think Arsene has lost it. So for a Spurs fan the longer he stays at Arsenal the better πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—



  • @canefan

    In Wenger's 22 years as manager the club have 3 titles and 7 FA Cups.

    In that time Spurs have won

    Totally true. But Wenger is a shadow of the manager he was. And if I don't want Arsenal to get back on top I reckon I'll take my chances with Arsene leading

    They don't serve lasagne anymore, clearly Suzie worked in London and Johannesburg. I don't think lasagnagate cost us anything more than a UCL place and avoiding St Totteringhams day



  • @mariner4life fairly confident Conte will be available pretty soon ...

    "Anything more than?" That's, like, your entire trophy cabinet.

    He'll go back to Italy and coach the national team.
