Little bit of strengthening for Everton in the week, but they still lack any kind of attacking edge.

Villa were awful last week, and it felt like something was wrong in the dressing room after Gerrard took the captaincy off Mings, then dropped him, then threw him under the bus with a "when he's ready to look me in the eye and tell me he's ready to play, he'll play"

This could be a clownshoes fiesta, and I'm here for it.

I think I remembered both the predictor and the fantasy premier league this week. Probably the only one time in thirty-eight I'll manage that.

As to the match, Villa look to be in a somewhat turbulent moment of disarray.

Fortunately for Stevie G's boys, Everton are currently deep fried dog shiat. 💩

The weather done here is oppressive today, I went out for about an hour before it even got that hot and i was a wreck. Can't imagine trying to play football in it (it's around 35 and very humid in a lot of the country today)

Oh get up you wuss.

Computer says no, wasn't a lot in it.

Drinks time!

No doubt about that one, thunderbolt from Ings and it's Villa with the lead.

Absolute stonker

Morning all. I was here for the kickoff, but late to the thread. Lovely goal, that.
 
2022-08-13 8:40:30 AM  
Digne might have gotten the yellow as much for the finger wag as the foul.
 
2022-08-13 8:53:13 AM  
As bad as Everton are, they're having some rotten luck with injury already.

Hello all.
After contacting the predictor site bloke who gave me admin permissions for the league, I managed to zero off the scores from GW1's predictions so we're all on a level footing from this week.
For those who made predictions last week (you naughty lot) here's how the table looked

There doesn't seem to be a way to zero all the GD, bonus , etc. numbers but at least the totals are all level for this week's action.

How did Villa not have that in the back of the net?
 
2022-08-13 8:58:33 AM  
Surely only a matter of time before one of these Villa chances goes in?
 
2022-08-13 9:15:52 AM  
Lol Neverton
 
2022-08-13 9:17:17 AM  
Dagger for Villa.
Easy tap in for Buendía.
Nice cross by Watkins.
2-0
 
2022-08-13 9:17:34 AM  
Clown shoes goal for Neverton
 
2022-08-13 9:17:44 AM  
Just turned on the match in time to see that 2nd Villa goal.  Really well worked.
 
2022-08-13 9:18:17 AM  
Good news, Villa score a third.
Bad new, own goal.
2-1
 
2022-08-13 9:18:48 AM  
And there went any points Mings mightt have earned my fantasy team.  Massive clownshoes.

Matinez with a nice double save to keep the embarrassment from Villa.
 
2022-08-13 9:22:18 AM  
I dropped Mings after the mess last week, should probably have brought in Ings.
 
2022-08-13 9:24:26 AM  
Lookin at some double bonus injury time here

Sums up Evertucky quite well.
 
2022-08-13 9:27:07 AM  
Diego Carlos limping like I am.  Hopefully, he'll be alright.  I'm still waiting for approval to get an MRI.

OH FFS VILLA
 
2022-08-13 9:28:37 AM  
Everton really making a push at the end of the game.
Why they waited this long to play this way.
 
2022-08-13 9:29:48 AM  
Ashley Young doing what he does best at this point in his career: getting booked for time-wasting.
 
2022-08-13 9:29:50 AM  
Ref with the ol' Judge Judy Yellow Card

That OG also killed my perfect.  Stupid Villains back line.
 
2022-08-13 9:36:14 AM  
Right. Cup of hot tea and a named meat roll.

QUESTION: Is a sausage roll a sandwich?

harleyquinnical: That OG also killed my perfect.  Stupid Villains back line.


Whoa!
I actually got a perfect on that one

HugeMistake: QUESTION: Is a sausage roll a sandwich?


No.
It's a savoury pastry isn't it?

Yes, it's a pastry.

I should get some coffee before these matches kick off, but my lap is weighed down by a puppy
 
2022-08-13 10:01:16 AM  
Game on in Molineux
 
2022-08-13 10:05:48 AM  
Wolves keep making that left side run, and sooner or later, they are going to get a goal from it.
 
2022-08-13 10:08:07 AM  
I can't get used to seeing Jesus in an Arsenal shirt
 
2022-08-13 10:12:27 AM  
Bournemouth is under serious threat.
Could already be 3 for City.
Looks like it is going to be a long day for them.

Pista: I can't get used to seeing Jesus in an Arsenal shirt


Yeah, that's still a bit of a trip.  I'm having trouble seeing Haaland in a Citeh kit after watching him at Dortmond since 2020

That's not exactly surprising.  City want to win the quad that badly...or at least Pep wants to win the UCL.
 
2022-08-13 10:18:29 AM  
Podence gets booked for that takedown.
 
2022-08-13 10:20:08 AM  
I don't know how you stop that.
 
2022-08-13 10:22:14 AM  
Fulham knocking at the door and they just couldn't get in.
 
2022-08-13 10:22:44 AM  
Boof!
Eat my goal.
 
2022-08-13 10:23:58 AM  
I see Villa got me 3pts to start the FFPL out good for me (and why did Villa have to score all 3 goals... oh, wait, Villa, that explains things).
 
2022-08-13 10:25:25 AM  
City finally break through.
Gündogan from Haaland.
1-0
 
2022-08-13 10:31:48 AM  
De Bruyne with a brilliant outside of the right foot goal.
2-0
 
2022-08-13 10:33:56 AM  
How many times do I have to say this? Never, ever let Kevin De Bruyne have the ball.

The EPL would be a lot fairer if De Bruyne played for a different team each week.
 
2022-08-13 10:35:22 AM  
Jesus with a second
 
2022-08-13 10:35:47 AM  
What a waste of a free kick by Neves
