Whet. Whet the appetite.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Whet. Whet the appetite.


came here to do what had been done

Oooh, matches that count! The last three weeks have been rough.

Luckily (unluckily), I'm cursed to support a Championship team (henceforth known as 'Frank Lampard's Derby County') and we kicked off our league programme a week ago.

For anyone who wants to join the fantasy premier league, the link & league code is in my profile.
I know we usually get stragglers, so I'll set the league to begin from GW2 so everyone can get a team sorted in time.

Benitez: "So Mike, who are we buying?"
Ashley: "Fraser"
Benitez: "Ryan?"
Ashley: "No, House of."

Another year of EPL, another year of me bemoaning the Spurs' performance. Well, and another year of trying to get juuuust enough bourbon into the dart-throwing monkeys that make my predictions.

I wish I had the time :( I can barely keep up with getting my FFPL pick in some weeks. Speaking of which, hoping midpoint pops in with the league code.

Considering that Spurs did jack shiat in the transfer window, you might be bemoaning their performance even more than past years.

They never really do very much in any window do they?
Last season they bought Lucas Moura seemingly just to shut the press up.
The whole transfer window's become a bit of a circus now with teams signing players & instantly sending them on loan somewhere or signing players for ridiculous sums of cash while not really needing them.
I honestly don't see the point of teams buying players if they don't need to. Spurs had a decent team last time out. They could be even more decent this time. We shall see.
I'll prolly miss the game this evening, but tomorrow I'm up for the whole lot

Yeah, I am.... not amused with their activity or lack thereof. Every year it's a new "how are we gonna screw up this time?" mystery though, so I got that going for me.

I told ManU friends on twitter that he'd be out by Boxing Day.
They seem to think he lasts the season.

To prevent confusion in the future, could we call the headline referenced sport Futbol?
Please?

No one is twisting your arm to watch. Or to comment in here for that matter.

Jose wants to leave but wants to be a victim and get fired
The board wants Jose out but won't give him the satisfaction of firing him

that's an arm

I reported the other one as repeat since it's got the lower thread number ... so this one will end up being killed

Paging Unfreakable to the Fark Courtesy Phone.  We need something done with the dueling threads.

/no, the white one

I just got back from my chiro appointment and already ManU lead.  Good grief.

As for transfers, the clubs that did nothing are the ones I am least thrilled about: Newcastle and Spurs. Magpies need more talent but the penny pinching of the front office to not pay more than £9.5M for talent is ridiculous.  And Spurs hoping to get Llorebte on par with Kane for a 2nd attacker is bollocks.

ManU looking like they have already parked the bus.
Conceding possession way to early.

Pogba with the best goal of the season so far

You've been waiting all day to make that joke, haven't you.

Nice play by Rashford

Despite the row between the British and Russian governments, it looks like either the PL or ManU will take Russian advertising money.
Aeroflot is on the dasher boards.

I would rather make my own than settle for Subway.

I remember a couple years ago reading an article about one of the many recent high profile spats between Merkel and Putin, and when I turned on the TV there was a Bundesliga match between someone and Schalke, and I laughed, given how prominently Gazprom is displayed on Shalke's kit and all over their stadium.
