Premier League 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Just seen the highlights, I'm really surprised that Kane penalty at the end wasn't given, and the punditry on MOTD2 is weird too. Last week Kane deliberately moved away from the ball to fall over Lascelles, this week for me he's done exactly what any player should do and put himself between ball and man, at which point he's been fouled. If it's the other way round it's an obvious free kick.

I've little doubt that any other striker on the panel would have said the same, and had it been an Arsenal player Ian Wright certainly would have.

Someone needs to explain to me why they're happy to use VAR on the stupidly marginal offsides but are then just blowing the whistle on potential onsides in play. Bizarre decision to go against the rest of the VAR-using world.

VAR is just the victim of the Premier League Referee's Old Boys Club where they won't highlight each other's incompetencies.

Great to get the lead back into halftime. That Willems strike was beautiful, but thankfully Mane can pick a top corner out too. That equalizer coming when it did was crucial, as it didn't allow the players too get thrown off by the terrible no penalty call when Lascelles tried the Headlock Takedown on Matip.

Muto onside and in on goal. Honestly, why are they flagging these? Obviously doesn't change the result here, but if you're going to use VAR for offside then use VAR for offside.

Tomori and Abraham (x2) put us 3-0 up (we'll see if we keep it this time :shifty:)

STILL every Premier League goal Chelsea have scored this season have been from academy players...!

Daniel James is playing so well for us. Did not expect him to settle in so quickly. The one attacking player who looks like making things happen every time we attack lately.

Hat-trick, Tammy Abraham.

Seven goals in the last three league games, and counting...

Feeling a lot of optimism with how the academy players are playing. Hope they're taking notice.

This is probably a stupid question, sorry. Where would someone in the States be able to watch Premier League matches? The only TV channel that plays them for me is NBCSN, but I don't want to pay for cable just for one to two channels. Are there any streaming services or on demand services out there? I'd like to keep up, but have no idea where to watch.

Edit: I asked about on demand services because most of the matches start extremely early or I'm at work while they're taking place.

Norwich are beating Man City 2-0.

My mate is on holiday in Greece and can't use his betting apps, so he just messaged me to ask me to put £5 on a Man City win for him. :lol:

      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.

      I remember a while ago we used to predict who would finish where in the table so I thought I'd put EWB to the test and see who was the best at predicting what would happen in the Prem this season. Who will be our version of Paul the Octopus and who will be as good as predicting things as Mark Lawrenson. There will be 5 questions with a total of 100 points up for grab and come the end of the season I will add all the points up to crown our first winner.
      Question 1) Top goal scorer (5 points for correctly guessing the top scorer, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top scorer and amount of goals)
      Question 2) Most assists (5 points for correctly guessing the top assist maker, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top and amount of assists)
      Question 3) First team to sack their manager (10 points)
      Question 4) Predict the table (2 points for each correct position,
      Question 5) Predict the three teams which get promoted to the Prem (5 points for each team guessed correctly, If you get all three correct; a extra 5 points is awarded)
       
      Here are my answers:

      1) Diego Costa - 22 goals
      2) Coutinho- 14 Assists
      3) Watford will sack their manager first
      4) Chelsea, Man.Utd, Man.City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Swansea, Southampton, Everton, Stoke, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Brom, Aston Villa, Leicester, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Norwich, Watford
      5) QPR, Middlesbrough, Hull City
