    Giving everyone else a chance…
    Abramovich does like to meddle!

    aye seen the sending off, did’t think that should equate to 3-0 though! Cheers, just curious as it looked odd on livescore!

    I’ve been out in’th’ills all day with no mobile signal (bliss) so hadnt seen any results.

    So…. Huddersfield are top of the premiership and Chelski got a hiding at home from Burnley? 😆

    Hmmm, Klopp seems as incapable of sorting out Liverpool’s defence as Rodgers! I’d sell Coutinho to be honest and buy a few defenders. Everyone wants to play for Barcelona or Real, doesn’t make you a selling club selling to them.

    It’s Kevin Keegan football. It’s an attitude.

    The thing is that defenders have gone to Anfield who were pretty decent players, and previously been part of effective defensive units. Then as soon as they put a red shirt on they seem to just be infected with the same totally shambolic lack of positional awareness.

    Didn’t Liverpool ship more goals than any other team last season? They just scored more. You’ll never win owt if you’re totally incapable of keeping clean sheets. But even if they spend Phil’s transited money on defenders, I can’t see it changing much

    It’s bloody great to watch though 😀

    Yeah I do agree it’s more of a collective team mentality than just the defenders. I reckon if they had a top class, commanding goalie there’d be less jitters any time the ball goes near the box.

    Man U to win the league based on dull 1 nil and 2 nil victories in comparison.

    My mate, who’s a lifelong season ticket holder at Turf Moor, just posted a video up on Fiendface of him and his 10 year old lad in the away end at Stamford Bridge, at the final whistle today. They were all going absolutely ****ing nuts!!! 😀

    I don’t care that we lost and didn’t score. I can’t wait for MOTD.
    Thanks to Huddersfield we’re above Palace in the table 😀

    😉 plenty of RESPECT shown by the boys in blue – at least Shearer was honest as a pundit

    Just had a thought there, if we get by Astana(we should, but I’m not counting my chickens), the stars will probably align so that we get liverpool, rodgers v klopp. Not usually superstitious but those kinda match ups/conicidences pop up all the time in fitba!

    Mind you Astana are gonny hate us after we put them out with 2 penalties last year, so lets get there first(dodgy defence and injuries to strikers are a concern)! 😆

    My lord we seemed to hve discovered the rt of both football and scoring goals

    Till the goal I was fearful it would be like last season of all possession nd no penetration

    Its only one game but it was an impressive team display and finally top of the league 😉

    The only thing to say for sure after this first weekend, is it means nothing in the long run.

    In other news. JonJo isn’t the brightest spark is he? If you’re going to stamp on someones ankle, maybe make sure the ref isn’t looking right at you.

    It means Liverpools defence look as much comedy value as last season 😀

    Was gonna post the same, bizarre*

    *though is symptomatic of the dearth of decent British defenders, CH in particular.

    It’s not just British defenders either – look at the money City spunked on Mangala and Liverpool on Lovren!

    Jonny Evans to City is the weirdest thing ever

    I was wondering if we’d jumped forward to April 1st when I heard that this morning

    Evans is decent. Has improved a great deal

    He’s a good player, but I don’t get how he fits in with the way Pep plays. Seems an odd match

    He is consistent, if unremarkable, and can pass out from the back, you have to remember he would be effectively the 4th choice centre back. If he can be had for under 20 million, it makes more sense than 35 million for another unremarkable fourth choice centre back which seems to be the going rate in this transfer window.

    Apparently he also still lives in Manchester, and is tired of travelling to the midlands, so it could be a deal that suits everyone, if probably rather inconsequential.

    No nonsense reliable central defender

    GRanted he is not the name you associate with a top top club but he is a decent steady performer who can be relied on to do the simple things….so an improvement for Cities current lot 😉

    these 4-0 drubbings are becoming so predictable

    Lets hope we dont do a City – look the best but fade- but the signs so far are very good

    Got to be challenging this year surely

    I stuck a few quid on another 4 – 0 at 14/1 too 😀

    Another great performance, and another clean sheet. I couldn’t believe Chelski sold us Matic! They must be regretting that one now. Crazy!

    You won your first three games last year…..early days! City won first 6 or 7 and were crowned champs in September by many.

    Still we look good and we have not looked this good for a few seasons so piss off and leave us alone 😈

    I’m not predicting anything, certainly not the title.

    I’m just enjoying watching some decent, entertaining attacking football, with a team looking to go forward, rather than the sideways/sideways/backwards stuff we’ve been enduring for the last few seasons

    We looked good defencively last season, but nowhere near sharp enough going forward. I’m enjoying Tony Marshall’s solskjaer-esque super-sub role in particular 🙂

    Football is a bunch of ar*e at the moment! Arnautovic needs to be docked 2 weeks wages for being such a knob. Silver lining at least Hernandez has shown he knows where the goal is again.
