Saturday football
Six workhorse fixtures this afternoon. There was a time in the distant past when the league table was only published after the first three games, but even then it’s far from useful. Come final score, we might see Huddersfield Town peering from the pinnacle of English football at also-rans such as Chelsea, Man U and the rest. Anyone remember Carlisle at the top of Division 1 during their single-season sojourn in the top division in the early 1970s?


BOURNEMOUTH vs MAN CITY (1230 ko)
The Cherries have done supremely well to stay in the Premier League for two years, but you fear they might become victims of the little-known Third Season Syndrome. Pointless so far and up against one of the title contenders, there seems to be little hope for them this afternoon. Damage limitation’s the name of the game for Eddie Howe. Away win.


CRYSTAL PALACE vs SWANSEA
A midweek win over Ipswich in the League Cup and the narrowest of defeats at Anfield last time out will offer some encouragement to Frank de Boer, but Swansea are no mugs and also come into this on the back of an emphatic cup win at MK Dons. This will be a hard-fought encounter, and both teams will perhaps view this with half an eye on the season’s final standings. There should be plenty of entertainment here for the neutral, assuming any neutrals will be watching. Draw.


HUDDERSFIELD vs SOUTHAMPTON
Well now, who’d have thought Huddersfield would have pocketed maximum points from their start to Premier League life? Beginner’s luck? Perhaps – but they still have six points banked in their quest for a season total of 40-ish. 34 to go. On paper, the Saints are the stronger team, but they will not take this encounter lightly and will have to play better than last weekend unless the ref again turns out in red and white stripes. A fascinating one, this. Draw.


NEWCASTLE UTD vs WEST HAM UNITED
St James Park can be fearsome when the home crowd is on fire. But they’re a moody bunch up there and an early first goal for us would do much to subdue them – along with the always excellent away support. Midweek goals for Ayew and Sakho will have instilled confidence in both players, but Bilic has to get the whole team properly stoked up for this. We’re good enough to come away with all three points, but we have to want them and play with purpose. There have been a good few high-scoring results from this fixture in previous years and it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that there’ll be another one today. Let’s hope it’s in our favour. Away win.


WATFORD vs BRIGHTON
If Andy Carroll’s parents had been Portuguese, he’d have been playing for Watford today. But as it is, Andre Carrillo is set to make his debut for the Hornets after signing from Benfica on a season-long loan. He joins a side that has made an eminently decent start to the campaign under yet another new manager, Marco Silva. Brighton, meanwhile, will already be trembling at the mere mention of the R word. But if anyone can pick them up, it’s Chris Hughton, one of the more underrated bosses. He will need his full powers of motivation at Vicarage Road, though, and it’s tough to see anything but more woe for the Seagulls. Home win.


MAN UTD vs LEICESTER (1730 ko)
Barely 15 months ago, most people would have been justified to be looking at this as an away win. Not any more, although Leicester have one of the country’s most promising managers. Jose Mourinho has got Man U playing with belief and purpose again and they’re looking good for an assault at the title. This could be more entertaining than you might think. Home win.

sky studio pundits highlighting how poor arsenal's midfield protection is. just like ours is. yet we're not allowed to complain about it as we 'expect too much'

Sven Roeder 7:47 Sun Aug 27
Re: Saturday football
The big problem was the midfielders giving them no protection and never running back.
Ramsey chatting to the bench while Liverpool had the ball on the other side behind him was laughable
Wenger should have gone out at Wembley as it's going to get nasty again.

Arsenal were truly awful. Their defence is nearly as shit as ours.

First New Zealander to score at Wembley ?

Difficult for Spurs fans. Conceding a 92nd min equaliser meant they only had a couple of minutes to get out of the stadium before the end

Re: Saturday football
You have to say that was a superb Liverpool goal.
4-0 and probably about 2 or 3 short of a fair reflection
Arsenal have played like us.

Striking watching Everton play at Chelsea earlier.

They did not have one single shot on target all game, having spent, what, 140 million quid ?

OK, they played midweek and they've got a lot of new players but Chelsea were missing three of their best players from last season and the gap in class was fucking yawning.

Sunday first up Chelsea vs Everton, 2-0 with five minutes to half time. Horrible away kit from Everton.

Shearer in an apoplectic fury on MOTD at the Watford defender's shocking tackle that got him a red card.
Shame Lineker didn't remind him of the infamous incident when he booted Neil Lennon in the head all those years ago.

Really looks a player. He can actually pass the football and seems to be able to defend. Very cool customer. Left footed too.

Watching Man Utd vs Leicester, we're not even playing the same sport as these.

And I'm talking about Leicester.

Why football is fucking shit though now.

Of course you're going to be over the top excited with a 97th minute winner.

Re: Saturday football
Refs' policy is decided higher in the football structure.

Can't blame them for that.

Which doesn't mean that they can't be blamed for being shit at the rest of their job.
