EPL 18/19



  • @kiwipie shuddup 😞



  • Emery's English is slowly improving, like the team. His pressers are so funny to watch because of his accent.



  • Liverpool go to an in-form Arsenal, get a draw, and it feels like a loss. Seriously, Liverpool are unbeaten in the league through 11 games, have only conceded 5 times, and yet the gap to City feels like a chasm. 2 points, and a 13 better goal difference. City are turning the league in to a sprint.



  • Just for @dogmeat Fulham get the first managerial sacking in EPL and bring in ... the tinkerman who just happened to win the title 3 seasons ago. Great theatre once again .....

    But Fulham are just amateurs compared to my Notts County who have just fired their 2nd manager of the season (Harry Kewell).

    Wow! I didn't even know Harry was in management.

    As soon as I saw the Fulham announcement, I thought of Dogmeat. Funny how the fern family works

    There are some seriously crazy odds at the TAB for everyone except City to win the EPL
    Liverpool $4.50
    Chelsea $18.00 (!)
    Spurs $31.00 (!!)
    Arsenal $101.00 (!!!)

    Almost worth putting some on all of those 4 just in case City blow up/have injury crisis/Pep resigns etc. $18 for unbeaten Chelsea who won the title the season before last is just incredible.



  • Get your money on Fulham now 5000/1.Ranieri has form. C'mon Tinkerman.

    When I heard the news I echoed the Lineker text "Ranieri? Really?"

    I think every Fulham fan is very sad it didn't work out for Jokanavic. He took us on a fabulous ride the last two years with Fulham lording it in the Championship and playing with a real swagger.

    I was hoping we'd give him longer right up until he lots the plot and started publically blaming all and sundry.

    Hopefully we get the good Tinkerman - for a while at least. Fulham still have a decent squad. A different voice in the dressing room will hopefully reap immediate rewards

    Given Fulham were bumbling along in 16th in November 2017 before surging to promotion, seems like exactly the wrong time to sack this manager. However Ranieri should be canny enough to build Fulham's team the same way as Leicester's. Get enough burly hod carriers to do the defensive donkey work so that the stars they have (and Fulham have some outstanding players) can focus on being stars.



  • 12 games in. Three teams undefeated. All Liverpool need to do is remember how to score lots of goals.



  • The best own goal you'll see in a long time by Bournemouth today.

    Peach of a volley!!!

    Absolutely cracking shot.



  • Relegation battle looks like it could be a thriller. Plenty of teams poor enough to be in trouble all season but each team that hits the bottom seems to immediately win a game (Newcastle have now won 3 and Huddersfield have a couple).



  • Wow! Tickets still available for tonights Champions League game. (Away end fully sold out but home fans seem to be slightly snubbing it.



  • Another glorious escape for Man U to qualify for the last 16. Big night ahead for Spurs who have to beat Inter and Liverpool at PSG.

    This tweet sums up the madness of the managerial merry-go-round in the lower leagues

    I think it's safe to say that neither Wimbledon nor Notts County thought, on 26 August 2018, with Dons having one win in five and County one point from five, that the solution to their problems was to swap managers

    Notts County (my team in case you care) are 23rd of 24 which is a relegation spot out of the league and already on their 3rd manager this season (Harry Kewell didn't last long). All this after making the play-offs under Kevin Nolan last season.

    I think Spurs have to go better than the 2-1 result against them in the away leg. There's more to it than that I think but that's the guts of it.



  • Hily shit get the highlights from Adelaide v Brisbane in the A-League last night. Eye gouge, dude gets knocked out by a super reckless challenge, the knocked out dude gets scragged on the ground, the coaches have a little go.

    Shit, so there was an interesting game of soccer? Might have to revise my opinion.
