WHO Poll
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

Reborn Arsenal take on re-funded Newcastle in the first major test of Eddie Howe’s reign. And it will be quite some test, with the Magpies right at the bottom of the table. Barring an unlikely catastrophe that sees them climb a position, the hosts will cement their fifth spot. Home win.

Viera plays Gerrard, an opportunity for two greats of the game to test each other’s tactics and powers of motivation. A Palace win could see them push into a European qualification position. On paper, there’s little to separate these sides, so home advantage could play a key role. Home win.

Their undignified defeat at Norwich punctuated what was a nice little run for the Saints. A trip to Anfield is not perhaps an ideal opportunity to correct their trajectory. The hosts will be licking their lips and will look forward to a brief ascent into second spot in the table. Home win.

Despite their dreadful start to the season, the Canaries are still within touching distance of that yearned-for space above the dotted line. Just three points and a massive goal difference separate them from Leeds. Wolves, in sixth, have their sights set somewhat higher. Can Dean Smith once again rally his troops and the crowd to avoid defeat? Don’t bet against it. Draw.

When discipline meets exuberance, it usually comes out on top. Which is a bit of a pity. But contrasting styles make for an intriguing encounter with which to end the day. Home win.


Football can be a pretty greasy pole. After their cracking start to the season, the Bees have started to slip, having managed just one draw among the four defeats since they beat us nearly two months ago. But they may be cheered by the knowledge that today’s visitors have an even worse recent record, having won just once – against Norwich – since mid-September. Time for the Toffees to put that right? Away win.

Spurs will have to put their loss to European heavyweights NS Mura behind them as they visit Turf Moor. But you feel that Antonio Conte has started to grab them at the scruff of their collective neck. Away win.

There’s sure to be a warm welcome for the Watford boss as he visits the place of his greatest achievement. Both sides have been frustratingly inconsistent this season, though Watford will benefit from not having played in Europe in midweek. Draw.

There’s not been one game this season in which we’ve played well after a midweek European fixture. Don’t expect that to change against the reigning champions today. Please, just keep it respectable. Home win.

It’s a shame that this game isn’t being played a few weeks later, when the new Man U manager could have had a chance to start shaping his new team. Chelsea start on top of the Premier League and in fine fettle generally. Man U come into this having just been demolished by Watford. Home win.

I know it's early to talk about just win games but I think newcastle face one tomorrow, lose again and they're down

Be Interesting to see if Ravel Morrison still has that touch of class in his feet.

Re: Saturday football
What a car crash of a football club Everton are, almost gotta feel sorry for their fans. Spend half a billion, employ elite managers and are still a disaster. I don't see it getting any better for them as they lurch from one disaster to the next.

Odd thing to say considering Lingard got back into the England squad when he was with us and was then dropped when he returned to the Mancs.

Re: Saturday football
Am sure the preseason grumblings about Rafa are back on .... even more so if Liverpool smash them at Goodison on Wednesday.
Not the same team without Calvert-Lewin who appears to have retired to become a model

Chelsea finishing the better but Man U deserving a point.
With Chelsea on top not much of the ball for Lingard so a quiet CAMEO. Put him back in cotton wool ahead of the transfer window.

Re: Saturday football
Does Copa Libertadores count as Saturday football? where was the OP prediction? The best bit was one of the Palmeiras players doing a Neymar when the ref encourages him to get on with the game by patting him on the back...and he went down sniper style.

Sign him up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Saturday football
1964 - given all the shit that Hodgson picked for England, I'm still amazed that he never gave Noble a chance. Consistent premier league performer and had a couple of top quality seasons, and then Drinkwater gets in after one decent season.

England managers have always made some odd decisions - a bit like when Eriksson picked Walcott for the 2006 World Cup ahead of Defoe and Bent, despite only having one fit striker and Rooney coming back from a broken foot. Didn't;t play one minute, and was immediately moved back into the U21s after the tournament.

Re: Saturday football

Carol's third goal in four seasons. An amazing stat for a striker that we saw was unplayable on his day.

A massive pity that he chucked his career away by not training properly and being too fond of the cold pop.

Another player who spunked his career. Hopefully the likes of Soucek, Coufal, Fornals and Ben Johnson are signs that we are moving in a completely different direction now.

Re: Saturday football
I see Andy Carrol scored for Reading. They also have Danny Drinkwater playing for them, you know the one that was preferred to Noble for England. How the mighty fall, eh!

Re: Saturday football
Re Lingard, if Newcastle are in for him it’ll come down to what he wants most out of more money or a better chance of being in the England squad. Although to be honest, Southgate probably won’t pick him unless he stays at Man Utd or joins another ‘big club’.

I gave Norwich zero chance of surviving three weeks back. Now, however...

Re: Saturday football
Lingard is absolutely loaded anyway . He had the chance of going there last January and had absolutely no interest in doing so .

Capitol Man 4:45 Sat Nov 27
Re: Saturday football
There rarely much talent available mid-season. The concern is that they will be prepared to throw money at Lingard. - assuming we are in for him.

Re: Saturday football
Hope they continue their run of shit form and shit results. All the players they are apparently linked with just makes me chuckle.

Let’s see if Mbappe joins at any point. Can’t see any international players wanting to join a relegation fight with a year to go until the World Cup.

Re: Saturday football
Newcastle's next two matches are home to Norwich and Burnley, after which they've got a horrendous set of fixtures in December. Fail to win at least one of those two matches and they will be so far adrift at the bottom come January that even Nigel Quashie would say no to joining them.

I know Arsenal are at the top of the form table but I’m never impressed by them.

Antonio would have their centre backs on toast.
