Plain old ESPN? Not ESPN + Prime Gold Alpha double secret streaming? I am shocked

I thought this was going green for Bayern stomping the scheisse out of Schalke

Schalke with a pass across goal but no one there

and now a corner after forcing Neuerrer into work
 
2020-09-18 2:36:28 PM  
Gnabry, from the top of the box, in the 4th minute, with the dagger

1-0

Lewey denied by desperate defending

Sorry, I didn't know they started tonight and it was on ESPN proper. But what does it matter? As I type this, the BBC shows the score as "Bayern 7 (seven) - 0"

now it's 8-0

no worries, it seemed at first like it was going to go green at 1:00 but then it changed

Hey all. I assume this is the EPL thread (along with other leagues by the looks of it).
Fantasy deadline has passed but if anyone's been playing since last week or has had a team all set up before the deadline today, there's a link & code to join the Fark Fitba league in my profile. It is set to start from this week.
I wrote up a summary of last week's action here
So no table for us yet, but the ref's table is available

Dean off to a slow start last week & he has the opening match today to try to channel Jerome Brisard.
Old Traffic sees the comic relief preside over the Red Devils vs The Eagles while Atwell & Kavanagh can only watch as their early leads slip away.
Right. I'm off to find a stream that's not going to deluge me with a zillion pron pop-ups

The short gap between the seasons has thrown me out somewhat. Usually by the time the EPL gets going again I'm dying to watch some footy.

But this year I didn't even watch anything last week, I just didn't feel it.

Here this week though, after I finally managed to convince my Apple TV that yes, I do have a subscription to bt sport, I'm looking at it *right now* on my computer.

I have a BT Sport stream on the TV. Not exactly legally.

Sadly I work today, so I can only follow some of the Everton vs. Wet Broom match.

We're recruiting for FFPL - the Fark Fitba Prediction League.

Fark user imageView Full Size


This is a simple game in which you predict outcomes of games in the English Premier League. Those predictions can be made in a minute - but the anguish can last a lifetime!

After our usual host closed down, we've moved to https://premierleague.predictthefo​otba​ll.com/profile/index

Joining is free. Please do so using something similar to your Fark handle, so we know who is responsible for which awful prediction in particular.

Once joined, search for the mini-league Fark Fitba Prediction League using the code 582582

All welcome, no experience needed, and it does help keep your interest up in the more obscure games. Chelsea Vs Liverpool for example.

There is no requirement to join in the kibitzing in the threads, only to make predictions for each round of games.

A couple of people are a few points ahead after Round 1, but don't let that put you off as the number of games will easily swallow up and small advantage.

Meanwhile, congrats to MrH, wh0 won FFPL last year.

They nearly went full-Norwich.
That's a bold statement

Fark NBC right in the Peacock

I see that Wet Broom went with a "park the bus" lineup right from the start, not that it seems to be doing them any good.

Good first kiss of death of the year.

Nice finish.

Jota to Liverpool is a bit of a surprise.
 
2020-09-19 7:43:11 AM  
Great goal
Broomers lead

And no sooner do I type that than Wet Broom laughs at me as they score.

It looks like both Everton and Wet Broom decided to show up and keep each other awake, at least.
 
2020-09-19 8:03:53 AM  
Joined the new prediction league, interesting rules here where you get bonus points if the scoreline you pick isn't one many other players picked. Encourages you to be a bit more outlandish.

VAR might overturn that offside.

There we go, not offside as the last touch was off the defender.
 
2020-09-19 8:09:48 AM  
So, good Everton showed up today, and Wet Broom is keeping themselves in it as well.

Oh IKTS, how I miss you...

I made quite the turnaround last season. Started dead last, worked my way up to my second-best finish.
 
2020-09-19 8:15:35 AM  
Also, that season was proof that you don't need no stinkin' bankers. I failed over 60% of the time.
 
2020-09-19 8:18:54 AM  
James scores just as the commentators have stopped verbally felating him
 
2020-09-19 8:20:00 AM  
Dean's in with a straight red for Gibbs
 
2020-09-19 8:20:27 AM  
Mike Dean with the easiest red card he'll ever have to give.

What a truly idiotic thing for Gibbs to have done.
 
2020-09-19 8:21:10 AM  
For a league that loves to flaunt itself as the "best in the world", they do lose their minds whenever a big player comes.
 
2020-09-19 8:21:39 AM  
I think dean also just red carded Bilic... do manager ones count for the table?
 
2020-09-19 8:21:51 AM  
Mike with the poleaxe, you love to see it.

Cyrene Valantion: I think dean also just red carded Bilic... do manager ones count for the table?


They count for Mike's mantelpiece, so I think they should for the table too.
 
2020-09-19 8:22:29 AM  
And the halftime scoreline matches my full-time scoreline prediction. Either I will get full points, or this will blow up in my face (my guess is it will blow up in my face).
 
2020-09-19 8:23:39 AM  
Sounds like Bilic was 'politely' demanding to know why Mike didn't go to VAR for the Gibbs red. Erm, because he shoved the guy in the face and everyone saw it?

Cyrene Valantion: I think dean also just red carded Bilic... do manager ones count for the table?


I don't think they do sadly. They should count as treble though
It's a #3 on the Dean scale

Oh yeah, that pred is toast, now that Wet Broom is down one player and their manager.

I guess he wanted to have the rest of this match off, as well as the next match.

It caught a lot of people off guard. Didn't realize he was only 23 so that could prove to be a great short-term and long-term signing.

2020-09-19 8:30:50 AM  
So Calvert-Lewin is a natural goal scorer now he's got 2 in 2?
 
2020-09-19 8:31:56 AM  
The Bilic one does seem a little harsh with that replay with audio, but if the ref says to back off and you don't... you always run the risk.

I haven't seen such a lack of effort in hiding your disdain since Suarez got hungry in Brazil.
 
2020-09-19 8:34:14 AM  
Actually, I forgot that the PSG-OM match happened just last week...
