(Daily Mail)   Moyes is already whining like SAF, Wenger has spent £80 on a wheelie bin and stale chips, and the Special One is already stirring the pot. Colour me chuffed, it's the start of the 2013/14 English Premier League season   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 728

ADubs86: Sturridge needs to change his studs at the half, he's been slipping a lot.


not sure it will help, it's raining

StRalphTheLiar: So apparently Dish has decided not to carry the overflow channels after all, so instead of "every match live" I'll be getting 2 matches live just like the old days. Oh well.

Hello everyone.


Trying to register (god knows i'll suck at it) but it won't let me.  Keeps saying invalid mobile number and other things.  Stupid site

Scouserduck has listed his FFPL location as 'United States Minor Outlying Islands'. So I'm thinking that is probably Guantanamo.


Chupacabra_Sandwich* lists his special interest as 'Wine Tasting'


* A worthy opponent appears?
 
2013-08-17 08:24:18 AM  
Lucky shot, thought Begovic was going to get to that one.
Mignolet already looks almost a bigger liability than Reina.

My overall table predictions, if no more moves are made by the end of the transfer window:

1. Chelsea
2. Manchester City
3. Manchester United
4. Tottenham (god I hate saying that)
5. Liverpool
6. Arsenal

18. Southampton
19. Crystal Palace
20. Hull City

Enter the number without dashes, that was my issue.  Also the country is USA instead of United States.  I had a bunch of issues that I got through so list them here and I'll do my best to help.

The registration requirements are only for if you want to be in their all-league money challenge. You can skip that but still register for FFPL. I just did it.

Also, don't put the invitation code number in the "name" field of the search. The invite code field is at the bottom.

So not EPL related, but phoenix fc had a player given a straight red in first half stoppage time for disrespect. Most rediculous thing I've seen.
 
2013-08-17 08:33:11 AM  
Good half. Really good in possession, just need to work on that killer pass. Begovic looks good, might have to pick him up for my fantasy team.
 
2013-08-17 08:33:15 AM  
Solid first half. Pleased with that.

Already? Or a carryover from last night?

Carryover from last night. I'm on vacation from work for the first time in a year so I went all out. Turns out that was a bad idea.


you just gotta make it to the end of the game. Halfway there...

Mignolet made one good save, I'll give him credit. But he's looked weaker than Reina did in the air and has flapped a lot of chances that he should, and had in the past, gotten a good fist to.

Welcome! You can't be that new, I already have you farkied as a Manchester City fan so I've seen you post somewhere here. How do you like your new coach?

Also welcome to all the new people for this season!  If you have any questions list them here and everyone will answer.  We are a fairly inclusive group, but of course the rivalries will appear, but no malice is really there.

Norfolking Chance: This is the first season of the Premier League without SAF on the sidelines pointing at his watch. Wierd.

Lots of people in this summer for Norwich and Holt has gone. He's hopeing RvW is almost as good as RvP. Plus i put a sneeky £1 on Norwich topping the table after the first round of matches. Come on you yellows.


Gonna be a tough season for you without Holt's goals. Of the players you've brought in, who are you happiest to have acquired?
 
2013-08-17 08:47:27 AM  
For those Americans looking for the Extra Time channels, I found a website that lists the channels for those that have revealed it already.  Find the info here:

http://worldsoccertalk.com/2013/08/15/where-to-find-premier-league-e xt ra-time-on-your-cable-or-satellite-system/

Now to watch Everton/Norwich in what should be a very exciting game, or to watch Jozy's first match as Sunderland go to Fulham.  Hmm...

ADubs86: You know, it's been a long time since I've seen expobill in here? Anyone know what's happened to him?


No idea, perhaps he's still on summer holiday. Perhaps nathanjr will show up to carry the Chelsea banner. Or Sirjohnfalstaff.
 
2013-08-17 08:54:15 AM

It's not Holt's goals we are going to miss, its his assists that were key last season. In 12/13 he only scored 8 goals but was instimental in most of the others scored when he played.

As a replacement its Ricky van Wolfswinkel that looks the best of the bunch but the key players will be the new midfielders. Without a good supply of balls even the best forwards can't score many goals. I think we won't go down this year as yet again i think there are much worse clubs than ours.

I'm glad we have Everton as a first game. It will take Martinez time to get his team playing his way so Everton won't be the solid unit they were under Moyes.
 
2013-08-17 08:56:32 AM  
It's kind of nice seeing Stoke players get run over for a change.

Begovic is the only reason the score isn't higher. He's having a great game.
 
2013-08-17 08:56:57 AM  
Sturridge just can't stay in his feet.

What are the odds Altidore scores 15-20 goals for Sunderland?
 
2013-08-17 09:01:38 AM  

HaywoodJablonski: What are the odds Altidore scores 15-20 goals for Sunderland?


I think they would be pretty long.  I think a realistic goal would be for him to net 10.  15-20 would put him in the top 5-7 strikers in the league and I think that would be a bit unrealistic.
 
2013-08-17 09:02:11 AM  

HaywoodJablonski: What are the odds Altidore scores 15-20 goals for Sunderland?


Ten players managed 15+ EPL goals last season, so I'd say the odds were long.

I'm really interested in seeing how Hughton does as your new manager.
 
2013-08-17 09:04:49 AM  

HaywoodJablonski: What are the odds Altidore scores 15-20 goals for Sunderland?


If he gets 10 or more, that would be really good. Can't see him getting more than a dozen to be honest.

Of course my cable company isn't listed.  ah well, I can just stream it and watch online
