BT Sport build up to this one just did a piece on his Fulham is charging significantly higher ticket prices for the home games with Liverpool and Chelsea than any other game (that they have tickets on sale for).

The fans are not happy.

And no one from the Fulham board was willing to make themselves available to comment on it.

I have this as a fairly comfortable Liverpool win, but some of the predictions I've seen elsewhere are expecting Liverpool to absolutely bury them. I've seen people saying 6-0.

Terrible game for Palace last night.
But we're only 3 points off the top spot at least.
*Checks team sheet*
Yep. Captain's on the bench. Situation normal
 
2022-08-06 7:20:42 AM  
Plan to take full advantage of the Peacock+ membership I got from Spectrum.

Good practice for early morning drinking for when NCAA starts too.
 
2022-08-06 7:22:23 AM  
Alright, first Fubo.tv EPL match, time to see if it's worth it

You went for Darwin as captain as well then? Heh.

Yep.
I have Son as VC but I expect Nunez to get about half an hour on the pitch
 
2022-08-06 7:31:23 AM  
I suspect almost everyone will have Salah, Son and one of Darwin, Kane or Haaland. Some might take De Brunye over one of those.

A large problem with week one in the fantasy league, especially for the newly promoted teams, is you haven't got a sausage who is going to be a starter and who was bought to ride the bench.
 
2022-08-06 7:32:47 AM  
They can't be giving Mitrovic chances like that. He's easily Fulham's main danger man,
 
2022-08-06 7:33:04 AM  
El Blazerico is today? Whoa
 
2022-08-06 7:34:07 AM  
Hmm, even the live stream is a bit behind, since there was the first shot
 
2022-08-06 7:36:09 AM  
Also, since no preds this week:

Fulham 2-0 Liverpool
Newcastle 1-1 Forest
Leeds 0-1 Wolves
Spurs 2-1 Southampton
Bournemouth 0-0 Villa
Everton 0-3 Chelsea
 
2022-08-06 7:46:02 AM  
Shall we do some season predictions? Top 6 and bottom 3...

Liverpool
City
Arsenal
Spurs
United
Hammers

Leeds
Everton
Fulham

I don't fancy chelsea at all, and at the moment at least neither Everton or Leeds have bought anyone to replace the big players they sold on.

I think Chelsea squeaks into 6th just ahead of the Hammers, and Neverton yet again manages to avoid relegation through dangerous blood pacts and Brentford's stay gets cut short
 
2022-08-06 7:54:46 AM  
Liverpool are sleeping their way through this first half so far.
 
2022-08-06 7:55:22 AM  
Decent chance there, though Henderson had a much better angle on it
 
2022-08-06 8:02:47 AM  
Well then
 
2022-08-06 8:03:38 AM  
All this possession, and it feels like we're constantly defending
 
2022-08-06 8:03:54 AM  
That's been coming. Liverpool just not on it at all.
 
2022-08-06 8:05:01 AM  
well, how far behind am I?  there's the goal
 
2022-08-06 8:05:46 AM  
looks like just over 2 minutes...
 
2022-08-06 8:06:18 AM  

Deathbymeteor: well, how far behind am I?  there's the goal


about 2 to 3 minutes it seems.
 
2022-08-06 8:06:58 AM  
Well, my in thread predictions are already aging like milk.

I'll have to see if adjusting the setup does anything, maybe running the app on console or without the Chromecast will tighten up the gap

there's always some lag. When I'm watching on bt it's around 30 seconds behind the radio if I have that on as well.

in the thread you have Fulham winning this 2-0, which I assume was a typo and not clairvoyance.

Yeah, it's always fun talking to my parents when hockey is on.  Watching a game in their timezone, my feed will constantly be a minute or three ahead of them, despite the couple extra thousand clicks it has to travel to get to me.

It was, but I'm going to claim it as Schrodinger's clairvoyance if I'm right
 
2022-08-06 8:26:25 AM  
well, taking off the Chromecast seems to have sped me up a little bit.  But now I've got the console all loaded and linked, so let's see how the second half goes.

Still weird to have legitimate broadcasts for EPL.  Wasn't goin to pay DAZN especially after the Super League debacle
 
2022-08-06 8:33:34 AM  
alright, time to see if the console broadcast is a bit closer to real time
 
2022-08-06 8:34:33 AM  
and there we go
 
2022-08-06 8:39:30 AM  
Morning all. I'm a little late this morning because SmallMistake was at a party and I had to stay up waiting for him to call me to pick him up. If only there were some sort of "on demand" car service he could have called.

And then when I got home I had to drink a bottle of wine because nobody else was going to.

Anyway, I'm here now, and since I don't have Peacock I guess I haven't missed much. (And no, I'm not doing That Which Shall Not Be Named for free.)

Did Bayern Munich clinch the Bundesliga yet?

And I appear to be about in the middle of both of you now.  Didn't think the tablet and Chromecast added that much lag

So is Millner on to shout at his team and wake them up a bit?

2022-08-06 8:49:16 AM  
Well, I'm already in a bad mood 5 minutes after waking up. But Liverpool's preseason hasn't been great. Outside of the Community Shield win, there's been a few subpar showings.
 
2022-08-06 8:50:40 AM  
Close!
 
2022-08-06 8:52:35 AM

What channel are you watching it on?
I have it on my cable channel rather than a dodgy stream with semi naked shiny ladies popping up every now & then to let me know they only live over the road.
Bit of a result for me this season actually. The satellite sports channel that used to be here (digi) and used to show a lot of the  games folded earlier this year and a new cable channel has appeared that is covering a lot of those games. On top of that the usual channel is now covering more games (on both their channels).
Result!
