The reassuring thing about this wave of talent we've got is that they're all Irish born and bred! The only one eligible for England was Obafemi and he was born in Dublin and cap tied.

That waist coated dickhead probably has the PowerPoint warmed up in St. Geroge's Park nonetheless! 🤨

Michael O'bafemi, surely?

Mick O'Bafemi I believe he prefers to go by. 

He's only played for us once but everyone loves him already. Saw loads of Obafemi jerseys at the Aviva last time.

It's really a shame Grealish didn't play for us. He'd be a God to Irish fans if he had stayed but will probably be a bit part player at best for England at best.

He’s blatantly not Irish though, Birmingham through and through.

Wesley confuses me. Either brilliant or fucking shit. Genuinely don’t know which one it is.

He played Gaelic Football and was raised in a very Irish household. Nationality isn't defined solely by birth.

He's equally as Irish as Raheem Sterling is English. Dual nationalities exist and he made his choice which was his right, I'd never begrudge him or discount his Irishness though!

Well, he's just scored to put Villa 3-0 up.

3-0, the most dangerous lead...

Tough call to make for the ref on that one. Albrightyon clearly kicks him in the leg but Mane's fall and the way he goes down is completely at odds with the contact. It's one of those ones, it's a foul but if Mane stayed on his feet, he wouldn't have got the call.

We got very lucky with the penalty, but it's a penalty. Clumsy by Albrighton. However, we should have seen the game off; didn't finish our chances. Leicester played well, but I do think Alisson would've probably saved that.

I still maintain my stance about Klopp's substitutions. This has always been his biggest weakness I think, though. Always has a tendency to wait far too long with subs, no matter what kind of game it is.

The current manager of the Irish national team is from Barnsley. However, he also has 52 caps for the Republic of Ireland and is a former captain of the national team.

It wouldn't be a new concept at all for someone from anywhere in England or Scotland of Irish heritage to declare themselves for the Irish national team. 

Unlike, say, Scotland or Wales or England where the practice is nowhere near as common.

This is what grates me to no end about Klopp. Why are we waiting until stoppage time to make the final change? Make a change with 10 minutes to go.

tbf, Salah didn't hurt until nearly the end of the game

I feel like the Everton managerial carousel may be about to start up again.

Yup. Silva is probably a couple more bad results away from rampant speculation about the sack. It's already starting up.

I'd say go all out for Eddie Howe if that does happen, but he'd probably rather stay at Bournemouth at this stage.

Hooray for goal-line tech - the one bit of VAR I can unreservedly get behind :wub:

And a lovely second goal from Mount, too.

It certainly does feel like it's their year. Plenty of time for it to go tits up, but they can't let this slip now.

      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
