Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Burnley have to be among the favourites for relegation. Their hosts will be challenging for the title. Football can be so unfair. It’s all about damage limitation for the visitors, but expect a rampant Liverpool side to put them truly to the sword. Home win.

Both sides lost their opening game, conceding a combined seven goals in the process. They will be keen to open their account with maximum points. It’s hard to choose between them on paper, though goals may not be in short supply. Draw.

What a start it was for Brentford. Can they build on that today? Their confidence will be high as they look to emulate the achievement of another team with red and white stripes two seasons ago. What has Patrick Viera learned from his side’s opening day defeat at Chelsea? Home win.

It’s an intriguing, alliterating battle of the bosses, with both Benitez and Bielsa known for the disciplined organisation of their teams. Again, there seems little to choose between them, with home advantage perhaps holding the key. Draw.

A wounded lion rarely encourages a weak opponent. The hosts’ opening day defeat at Spurs will have Pep licking his lips and his opposite number clenching his jaw. Will Daniel Farke be tempted to send his reserve side into the lion’s den? Will he come away with anything but a severely damaged goal difference? Nope on both counts. Home win.

A bright start for both teams gives this game a slight edge over what one might otherwise expect to be a bit of a bore fest. Draw.


The Saints have to recruit well in these final days of the window or risk the kind of battle to which they were once accustomed. It’s a tough one for Ralph Hassenhutl, and not just today. Man U come into this buzzing from their demolition of Leeds and hoping, expecting, to double their points tally. Away win.

A first visit to the away dressing room for the Spurs boss, who can take enormous encouragement from his new charges’ victory over Man City. Wolves have Jiminez back in attack, and wouldn’t Nuno like someone of his calibre leading the visitors’ front line? This should be a good battle. Draw.

Chelsea look dangerous. Arsenal don’t. There’s only one possible outcome. Away win.


David Moyes twice got the better of Rodgers last season. Can he continue that form, or has the Foxes’ boss learned his lesson? It’s early yet, but this could once again be a game between rivals for a European place and both managers will be well aware of that. The way that we’ve shown the balls to get back into a game after going behind – not just last week, but on several occasions this year – has been really encouraging and a marked turnaround from the more familiar giving up once behind. It demonstrates the confidence running through the side, a passion, belief and desire to win. That’s priceless in any sport. Soucek played a deeper role at St James Park, feeding Antonio and Benrahma. Although it worked on the day, it was hard not to feel that Soucek’s attacking qualities were under-used. An effective midfielder would allow Soucek to push further up and (with Lingard?) give us a versatile and really compelling attack. For Leicester, Jamie Vardy will again be a threat and the defence will have their work cut out to stop him cutting inside. Home win.

Re: Saturday football
Some of the away kits are fucking horrendous, whomever designed and then approved the ManU and Spurs kits should be given a good kicking.

Re: Saturday football
It’s good to see refs letting some robust challenges go as long as their judgement is applied in a consistent way whether in or outside the penalty box.

Re: Saturday football
Solskjaer and Klopp whinging about referees not giving them the soft fouls they were getting last year.

Stupid cunts.

Re: Saturday football
Half the Arsenal fans are on the tube home.

They have some promising young players ... but not sure they will have them for long
Imagine Arteta will think this one should have been postponed now that this game is FISTED as Martin Tyler put it.

Re: Saturday football
I'm not sure Chelsea are as desperate for Rice as Rice is desperate for Chelsea.

Arsenal are SHIT. Arteta must be nailed on in the sack race.

Sven Roeder 8:10 Sun Aug 22
Re: Saturday football
Kante is still a fabulous player.
Not overly convinced by all of Chelsea's defenders but Tuchel has made them harder to score against after the shambles that Fat Frank presided over.
Such a shame that Lampard wasnt retained forever.

Re: Saturday football
"Once kante is back as well" might have answered your own question there. Kante has had similar hamstrings too Antonio over the last couple of seasons.

Re: Saturday football
Chelsea are probably a top centre back away from being favourites for the league. Once kante is back as well. For the life of me I can’t see why they are apparently so desperate for Rice, as good as he is I’m not sure he improves em that dramatically.

Re: Saturday football
Having watched £50m WHITE against Toney last week not sure he fancied Lukaku this week.
COVID? Been licking Aubamayang's locker all week I reckon

Re: Saturday football
Arsenal are without White, Odegaard, Aubameyang and Lacacette against arguably the best team in Europe. Are people really surprised at the scoreline? And Arteta is clueless

Ty won't be happy.

Sven Roeder 7:15 Sun Aug 22
Re: Saturday football
Thought Saka ... accidentally or not ... initiated the contact on the defender for the penalty claim.
Cant win 'em, can't score 'em.

Sven Roeder 7:14 Sun Aug 22
Re: Saturday football
Unfortunately Chelsea are going to be right in the mix for the title. Probably favourites if Man City dont get Kane.

Game today seems a basic middle to lower middle table team trying their best against a far superior team.
Cant cope with Lukaku at all.
Not sure how Arsenal fans will cope with the REALITY sitting in their £1,200+ a season seats.
They are crybabies at the best of times.

Anyone got the odds on Arteta being the first out the door.?

What the fuck is Tierney doing? Certainly isn’t featuring in any defending whatsoever

Far too easy.

If anyone finishes above Chelsea they’ll win the league.

Not a good shape

Re: Saturday football
It won't stop the Yid fans being on social media tonight saying they don't need Kane and will win the title

Far more deluded than us !

BTW, ridiculous amount of empty seats at the library

Re: Saturday football
I don't think Lingard is stupid, he would know exactly where he stands in the pecking order there long before today

Burnhammeronsea 6:04 Sun Aug 22
Re: Saturday football
Lingard wont want to spend most of his time on the bench with the odd 5 minutes at the end. This game might have made his mind up to get the hell out of there.
