Soccerball – 2017/18 jumpers for goalposts megathread
I just go misty-eyed with memories of Ole JY. And I’m loving the Tony/Rashford super-sub double act. Whichever one starts, the other comes on and scores. Not a bad set up really
Weeksy. – what are we betting on then, my friend?
I’ll have a fiver you don’t get out of the group, and I’ll have twenty on you not worrying the top 4 spots this season 😀
Jammers can tell you where to procure your payment method when you lose 🙂

Ooh… STW footie bets! 😀 (I’m keeping well clear, being a Gooner!)
Yeah fair call, De Bruyne has been highlighted by the Pundits for his quality passing, makes the top five, but no goals in five appearances, despite his team running wild, means he’s not near the top. Sane, 2 goals already despite being a sub…and what goals too! He’s only 21.Posted 5 months ago
he is not there to score the goals he is there to make the goals for the strikers and he has 4 assists
He is one of those players who just improves the whole offensive line of the team
others will get you goals but not necessarily make the team [ as a collective] better though they will improve team results
I think Matic has done the same at man U this year – though more for balance than offensive reason.Posted 5 months ago
The thing is, IMO, you want your midfielders to mainly provide assists and pop up with a few goals throughout a season, I think it can become a problem when a midfielder gets too much of an eye for the goal and starts to rob the team of better opportunities if he passed instead of shooting. That is currently De Brunes role.Posted 5 months agoCletusMember
KDB best player so far even if he has not scored yet. His delivery is outstanding and he has been working hard, tackling etc.
Gundogan was having a great game at WBA before Tactical Tony got his caveman cloggers to take him out whilst the ref looked on gormlessly. If he can keep fit then I think he will be one of the best in the league.
Interesting that Manyoo and City have each got a group of talented young forwards. Jesus, Sane and Raheem are better than Rashford, Martial and Lingard imo but I would say that as a Blue.
Of them all I think Jesus has the most potential to be a genuine global star.Posted 5 months agohowsyourdad1Subscriber
if anyone gives a shi*t here is an report from CNN about my local team here in the frozen north of Sweden.
Galatasary beaten, Europe league qualification and last night a Bundelsiga team crushed, all led by an Englishman.Posted 4 months ago
They’re just the gift that never stops giving. I’ve got a lot of Scouse mates and I’m absolutely loving their mid-table mediocrity. According to most of them at the start of the season, this was definitely ‘their year’ . I’ve been listening to it for 25 years, and this squad looks further away than ever. Absolutely hopeless at the back – pure comedy – and now the goals have dried up too

Everton look to have spent their Lukaku money badly, signing good players without a plan for the team or a style of play.
Utd only won after we softened palace up for them last week, and only 4 goals, pffft.
City result was good in that they showed a work ethic and determination that had been lacking for some years, but the pundits have been going overboard, they have played better before.Posted 4 months ago
Well I’m here for the big match of the weekend, kicking off at 12.30. Binnerette number one playing centre back for Longford Girls against Cadishead 🙂
I believe there’s another smaller match being played simultaneously. I’m hoping all the King Kenny stand naming hoo-ha proves to be the kiss of death that it usually is when anyone does owt like that. It could be anything thoughPosted 4 months ago
Watford are fourth! Above Chelski! Blimey! 😯
United have had an easy start. I really hoped Jose would have been more adventurous today. Liverpool are easy to score against with their ropey defence. Not a side you need to park the bus against
City are in a league of their own at the moment. Much as I hate to say it!Posted 4 months agomuggomagicSubscriber
Man City are something else. Quite chuffed that we only lost 2-0 to them now 🙂
Man U v Liv lived up to expectations for me. Jose was only ever going there not to lose.Posted 4 months ago
Fingers crossed we can put another nail in Koeman’s coffin today, but don’t have a good feeling about this one, but then I rarely do.mikewsmithSubscriber
And the Third time of asking
Newcastle United: Mike Ashley puts Premier League club up for sale
Though a lot of sceptacism going around
I do hope there is a serious investor ready to take charge and push with Rafa in the right direction.Posted 4 months ago
