There was a thread earlier in the week with this season's Fark Fitba Predictor contest. If midpoint doesn't show up for some reason, you can find the league code in his profile. For the neutrals, are any of you rooting for either team?

Going with Ahsenal, mostly because I find their Fark supporters fun (sorry eagles).

I don't really have any banter for the City fans, but I am having a good laugh at Nasri retiring from international football at the age of 27:  https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/football-disgruntled-nasri-says-f r ance-career-070943018--sow.html

So, a redo of Berndt Schuster. Nasri's an idiot.

I'm here.

Details on FFPL in my public profile.

All welcome. No experience of knowledge necessary - or seemingly helpful for most.

We're starting in Round 2 of the EPL season, to give give for recruitment and one week of practice.

38 in the league so far. No Chelsea supporters. No MCFC supporters. One Burton Albion supporter.

Not yet.

I should point out I was noting current mix, not setting quotas/fatwas on those teams.

Somehow, Swansea have kept Bony thus far. We're screwed if that changes, seeing as we lost Davies' presence in defense.
 
2014-08-10 09:45:58 AM  
There are already a lot of Arsenal fans on Fark, but if my favorites are correct, there are some City fans, too. Not sure if any are around, but hoping to see ukexpat, Ablejack, eagles95, sephjnr, CoffeMug and/or Evilsmurf.

Today should be a good game, but I'm a bit worried. City is solid (and deep) and Arsenal aren't playing any of their Germans today.

I always liked Sagna, but I have to admit that Debuchy is looking a little better the times I've seen him. Slightly better positioning, just as good in the air. Want to see how Chambers does today against a team like City.

I would like to declare my retirement from the Dominican national team today. It's been too long without a single call-up.

He's so solid for Everton, I was surprised he never got called up. The French got the joke though, and a good laugh was had.
