Saturday football

The two teams are level on points after five games. Few, if any, would have predicted that. Few also would have anticipated this game with anything approaching expectation a month ago. Will this see us return to ground level with a sore arse or can we build on the exceptional recent results? Players and manager alike point to a good team spirit, and that’s so important. Can Moyes deliver a pre-game pep talk that will see us take another unexpected point – or more? The Pep talk in the away changing room may refer to City’s extraordinary record at this stadium and Guardiola may be excused for licking his lips ahead of this one. Any of the three possible results would not be a huge surprise. This is 2020. Draw.

Fulham will be up for this after taking their first point of the season last week. Palace are always solid and often hard to break down, but the hosts seem to have sorted out some of their defensive frailties for now. Draw.

Neither of these two have made the kind of start to the season their fans would have wanted. OGS is breathing the air of borrowed time and the pressure will be on him to deliver. FLJ’s main problems are in defence, but his attack – like that of the visitors – is strong. Which should make for an entertaining encounter. Home win.

The Blades have been unable to kick on from last season and only managed to draw with Fulham last time out for the first point of the season. Without a certain Dutch defender, Herr Klopp can still turn to Fabinho to marshal the hosts’ back line. It would take a brave man, or one with a sharp edge, to back anything but a comprehensive home win.


The Saints have drawn on their form from the later part of last season. Danny Ings is on fire and the whole team seem to have that never say die attitude that rescued an unlikely point at Stamford Bridge last time out. Everton remain at the top of the table, but will have their work cut out at St Mary’s this afternoon, the more so as they will be without the influential Richarlison. Draw.

Wolves continue to ooze class under their greater-bearded manager. Apart from their opening day victory, Newcastle have accumulated four points from four games. Which will probably be four from five after today. Home win.

After a strong start, the Foxes have fallen away in their most recent games and are now ahead of their hosts on goal difference only. Arsenal seem to be making progress under Arteta, who gives the impression that he’s building with a long-term plan. His solid foundations should be bolstered this evening. Should be a good game. Home win.

Everton missing Richarlison speed and directness...

James subdued. Few key passes...

Calvert Lewin ineffective so far...

2-0 Soton...

Re: Saturday football
Saints have concentrated nearly everything down their left, attacking Everton’s right back. It’s worked a treat. 4-0 would not have flattered them, and that was after 60 minutes.

Re: Saturday football
Jermaine Defoe doing his thing up in Scotland.

Rangers in control of their game and have a six points lead (played on more game) over Celtic. Long may it continue.

Ancelotti, has won just about any trophy worth winning as a manager, what has this opinionated bint won as a coach?

Re: Saturday football
Digne just got a red for a horrible foul that could have fucked up the young lad long time. He had the nerve to act all innocent and shocked, but the dirty cunt knows what he did.

Re: Saturday football
Everton were being talked of as title contenders last week, the absolute levels of shit some people are paid to come out with

And Shane DUFFY was fucking horrific for Celtic earlier

Re: Saturday football
Good value for their 2-0 lead.

Two assists for Ings, who is some player at the moment. I hope he’s past his injury problems. Good honest pro.

Re: Saturday football
Saints good value for their 1-0 lead.

Everton back to reality so soon?

There I was, Coffee, sticking up for you, and you pay me back by inflicting Bob Dylan on me.

Re: Saturday football
I feel like both of these teams have devolved to fishing for fouls and penalties. There is no fluency to this match.

Re: Saturday football
Think it was on Monday Night Football someone suggested retired refs sitting in the VAR bunker
The refs now look after their mates as they could be on the other side the next time
For the Everton v Liverpool game Oliver reffed and David Coote fucked up on VAR
The next day Coote reffed Leeds v Wolves with Oliver on VAR
Looking out for each other

See Evra is happy to be doing the Man U game today, hope they don’t concede a few goals as he might really lose it again.

VAR is truly bent.

Re: Saturday football
They seem to make it up as regards contact
Some teams need to have their foot snapped off & others need just to be touched.

Maguire putting a player in a headlock and dragging him down. No penalty
