Today's matches are brought to you by the number 4

I had no idea Ramsey was Brazilian

czetie: Man Utd making heavy weather of it against some ordinary sides. Lots of rebuilding needed. After seeing Zaha playing for the England U21s, I still don't understand why he's not a regular in the side.


How long until the ManU diehards really start rioting against Moyes?

Or Kagawa. Subbing in Giggs doesn't work anymore.  Back line is terrible, don't know wtf they are doing on that corner.  Everyone just doesn't look that great except maybe RvP, Rooney, Carrick and Januez or however you spell it.

Southampton is 4th on the table.  Not exactly that ordinary this year.
 
2013-10-19 11:54:05 AM
Not going to be a big scoring day for me.  Those 4th goals from Chelsea and Arsenal took away a decent amount of points as did the Southampton goal.
 
2013-10-19 11:57:05 AM
Thanks for the 90 points, Everton
 
2013-10-19 11:58:31 AM
What a shiatty decision to yellow card Baines for simulation at the end.  Jesus Christ.

This. They've only conceded 3 goals in 8 league games.

125 for the day I think.
 
2013-10-19 12:04:15 PM
+20 today, ugh.
 
2013-10-19 12:07:30 PM
+10. Goodbye, first place...
 
2013-10-19 12:15:51 PM
130 for me plus any bonus points
 
2013-10-19 12:15:56 PM
+30 here
 
2013-10-19 12:17:33 PM
Looks like +70 on the day for me if I'm calculating correctly.

Bust banker on MUFC?

Hey all. Just watched my recording of the Liverpool match (couldn't get up for the 4:30 this time round). Notes:

1) fark you, Liverpool. You can't have an extra guy for 50 minutes and draw with Newcastle. I'm glad you were barely able to at least squeak out a draw rather than lose but the game shouldn't have been that farking frustrating to watch.

2) Sterling should have come on for hendo and 5 minutes eater. Johnson was at least putting shots on target regularly.

3) see point #1
 
2013-10-19 12:25:12 PM
Gotta love the tweets to the BBC:

Jason Eden: If Southampton are to compete for a Champions League place then they really need to be beating these mid table sides.
 
2013-10-19 12:26:32 PM
+80 for me so far, but with my banker still to lose on City

Yep.  Agreed on all points

That is all kinds of awesome.

What's with the bubbles at West Ham?
 
2013-10-19 12:31:35 PM
For those that missed the Wilshere goal

That's utterly ridiculous. GOTS?

Nope. Banker still in play. Didn't predict any draws...

What passing.  Nothing the Australian national team could do.

I may be biased, but it's got MY vote. I saw the replay and got a semi.
 
2013-10-19 12:38:31 PM
Despite Liverpool and Man U, I'm still in positive territory for the day...not by much though. Tough week on some of these predictions.
 
2013-10-19 12:39:36 PM
Oh this is going to be awesome. Forgot to do my preds, and Real Madrid has unsettled Casillas enough to make him think of leaving the team.
 
2013-10-19 12:39:50 PM
GO WEST HAM!

COYI!
 
2013-10-19 12:41:21 PM
At least Swans beat the hell out of Sunderland to cheer me up.

FARK...

Princip's Sandwich: At least Swans beat the hell out of Sunderland to cheer me up.


Isn't that shooting fish in a barrel?  Last I knew, Sunderland was at the bottom with a single point.
 
2013-10-19 12:46:23 PM
Oh geez, Aguero had him dead to rights. That was basically a penalty.

It's still a nice +4 to the goal difference.

And killed off any impress-the-new-boss bonus from the Mackems. Right in front of the Tyne-Wear derby as well.
 
2013-10-19 01:05:53 PM
Ouch.  Poor Sunderland.
 
2013-10-19 01:39:32 PM
Two for Aguero; goalie doesn't get enough of a hand on it.
 
2013-10-19 01:40:17 PM
You might want to mark him...

/pitch invader!
 
2013-10-19 01:42:40 PM

Rev.K: Had the Liverpool game on PVR. Just finished.

A 2-2 draw was a gift. That passing was horrendous. Conceding with Newcastle down to 10? Ugh.


I just finished the same thing and I was going to say the same thing. Just a poor performance and we're fortunate to escape with a point. But I guess that's a sign of a good team, when you get a point when you don't deserve anything.

/Would've been up to watch it live, but some dipshiat neighbor had to play mariachi music until 2am when police finally arrived to shut it down
//Not getting up at 4:30am under those circumstances

GOOOOOOOOOOOAL!

There's the West Ham goal I was waiting for on a beautiful overhead kick.
 
2013-10-19 01:47:13 PM
That was a neat little goal.
 
2013-10-19 01:47:57 PM
I guess I was getting too excited about my 2-0 City banker. I'm sure this match will end in a draw now to spite me.
