I reckon the first game could be a very frustrating 1-1 draw
Let's have a wee look at the Dumpster Fire table shall we?

There's also a summary of the last GW
Punisher Pawson took full advantage of Anthony (Aggro) Taylor's absence last week as he racked up 6 yellows to storm back the top of the ref's table while Tierney the Terror could only muster 4.

And he opens this week at the Emirates where his notebook & pencil could get a really good work out.
Taylor is up on Sunday at Turf Moor where Burnley are pretty well renowned for playing rough.
Full appointments listing is here

Almost all of my 90 points last week were from two players. Two.

Normally I'd be all in for giant meteor in a game between Arsenal and United, but part of me really wants to see the United train continue to career off the tracks.

Pogba not even on the bench, word is he's got an injury that rules him out for the rest of the season. And if you believe that I've got a bridge to sell you.

Pista, just seen that Pawson has been handed the whistle for the fa cup final as well... and he might be the English representative at the World Cup...
 
2022-04-23 7:32:59 AM  
Tavares scored a goal?

What?

It'll be a bloodbath
 
2022-04-23 7:34:27 AM  
Oh my... absolute clownshoes as both United defenders swing and miss at a cross leaving Arsenal with an easy goal.
 
2022-04-23 7:34:27 AM  
Really terrible defending there by United. TWO guys lamely sticking out a leg?
 
2022-04-23 7:34:56 AM  
ManU defense already in shambles.
Early 3rd minute goal
De Gea with a nice save, but Tavares run not tracked and he gets an easy tap in.
1-0
 
2022-04-23 7:34:56 AM  
Horrible defense good lord. Lol
 
2022-04-23 7:35:01 AM  
Good morning everybody. I pity those of you trying to predict the Arsenal v Man Utd game this morning. Utd have managed to make Everton look good and barely squeaked out a win against Norwich. At least half of the squad look like they don't want to be there - or in some case have already mentally left.

And all of them look like they are playing out the string until the beginning of yet another Three Year Rebuilding project. It really is frustrating to think that Utd have made absolutely no progress since the departure of SAF.
 
2022-04-23 7:35:02 AM  
Shambolic!
 
2022-04-23 7:36:17 AM  
I thought the awful form of the teams would lead to cancelling each other out and put a 0-0 in the predictor.

That must be the earliest my prediction list has ever been set on fire.
 
2022-04-23 7:36:51 AM  
...and before I can even finish that comment, there is the usual clownshoes dumpster fire start by Utd. sigh
 
2022-04-23 7:38:47 AM  
I was distracted taking care of the puppy and missed the goal despite having the match on.
 
2022-04-23 7:39:25 AM  
So Maguire is in the bench for this, and apparently it's because some idiot phoned in a bomb threat against his house.

Both sets of fans applauding Ronaldo again in the 7th minute. Good to see.

Oh is THAT what happened with him. I wouldn't be in a position to play after that either.
 
2022-04-23 7:41:30 AM  
Today will come down to which team's defense makes fewer mistakes.

Aaaaaand there's a defensive mistake by Arsenal. This is gonna be a long game
 
2022-04-23 7:41:49 AM  
Fernandez needs yo get that on target.  Huge chance wasted.

Deflected
 
2022-04-23 7:42:36 AM  
My 0-0 pick is looking increasingly ridiculous.

The defending on show today is not exactly vintage,

Langston: harleyquinnical: Fernandez needs yo get that on target.  Huge chance wasted.

So I saw on replay
 
2022-04-23 7:45:25 AM  
Elanga's begging for a PK.
He's not going to get one

If I did predictions - which I don't, for obvious reasons - I would have gone for 3-2. Both of these teams are defensively unpredictable.
 
2022-04-23 7:46:40 AM  

Pista: Elanga's begging for a PK.

Nope.  Var confirms no penalty

That looks close on the replay. Tavares taking a big chance. "We've seen them given", as they say.
 
2022-04-23 7:47:31 AM  
Tavares looks like he is going to be in for a long day.
Elanga has run past a couple time already.
 
2022-04-23 7:48:21 AM  
Apparently Ragnarok thinks Utd are six years behind Liverpool. I think that's overoptimistic. More like a decade I would say.

& this is Punisher Pawson after all

There's an interesting piece on the Beeb about them today
 
2022-04-23 7:53:35 AM  
Arsenal a bit flat-footed today. Horizontal rather than vertical.

Much as I hate to say it, Pepe would be a good substitution. United's defensive structure more rigid today, Arsenal needs more dribblers.
 
2022-04-23 7:54:19 AM  
That would have been some goal had it not hit the cross bar
 
2022-04-23 7:54:25 AM  
Lots of hand ball claims to no avail.
 
2022-04-23 7:55:08 AM  
Bar denies a great strike from distance.
 
2022-04-23 7:55:36 AM  
This is a game I should not be watching live
 
2022-04-23 7:55:40 AM  
great stop from De Gea
 
2022-04-23 7:56:14 AM  
Big save from De Gea
 
2022-04-23 7:57:40 AM  
EDDIE
 
2022-04-23 7:58:20 AM  
Really?  No offside there?
 
2022-04-23 7:59:00 AM  
And pulled back.
 
2022-04-23 7:59:07 AM  
How do you measure an offside when the player laying them 'on' is falling over?
 
2022-04-23 7:59:07 AM  

harleyquinnical: Really?  No offside there?


VAR agrees with you
 
2022-04-23 7:59:52 AM  
Oh come on VAR. Pick a reason any reason
 
2022-04-23 8:00:16 AM  
Goal was offside, now checking if it was actually a foul for a penalty...
 
2022-04-23 8:01:00 AM  
If that's a foul, I'd give the goal.
That's just playing the advantage surely
 
2022-04-23 8:01:04 AM  
No goal. But a penalty. Wonder if it'll be Eddie taking it
 
2022-04-23 8:01:24 AM  
At first glance it looks like Eddie was in an Offside position when the ball was played in,  but you also have a possible foul.  And it's determined to be a PK as I'm typing.
 
2022-04-23 8:01:53 AM  
If you're a fan at this, you probably have no idea what's going on.
 
2022-04-23 8:01:59 AM  
and penalty came before the offside?
 
2022-04-23 8:02:00 AM  
Fernandez spends more time arguing with the ref than playing the ball these days.
 
2022-04-23 8:02:16 AM  
No goal Eddie.
Goal Saka.
