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. 

I'm just enjoying this timeline of us being good and United being absolutely shambolic tbh.

The United banter era has been a joy at times

Every time I’m sad about Newcastle I’m going to remind myself at least I’m not a Man United fan.

Manchester are now at least the third best United.

Edit: Fourth. Forgot about Sheffield.

Without question the worst Man Utd team I've ever seen come to Newcastle. Are the likes of Fred and Pereira real football players, it just feels like a squad of Football Manager regens?

McTominay?!? He's definitely made up.

You just know Man Utd are going to shithouse a 1-0 win in their next game against Liverpool. Fred will probably score with his arse.

Football supporters could have more influence over the way their clubs are run under plans announced by the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

He said that a Labour government would legislate to ensure that supporters’ trusts had the right to appoint, and sack, at least two members of a club’s board of directors.

Labour would also legislate to give supporters’ trusts the right to purchase shares in a club when it changed hands.

“A football club is more than just a club, it is an institution at the heart of our communities,” said Corbyn, an enthusiastic Arsenal fan.

“Clubs are part of the social fabric that binds us together. They are too important to be left in the hands of bad owners who put their business interests ahead of everything else, marginalise supporters and even put the financial security of clubs at risk.”

Corbyn announced the plan as part of a package of proposals that he said would “empower fans” and improve football governance.

Labour is committed to reviewing the way football is run, ensuring that the Premier League invests 5% of its income from TV rights in the grassroots game and enforcing legislation designed to stop ticket-tout websites selling tickets at inflated prices.

It also wants to ensure that the Women’s World Cup is included in the list of key sporting events broadcast free-to-air, and improve access to stadiums for disabled people.

Corbyn said that football clubs should be run in the interests of supporters, not their wealthy owners.

“Sport must be run in the interests of those who participate in it, follow it and love it, not just for the privileged and wealthy few. We will ensure that supporters have a say over how their club is run and review how fans can have more of a say about how all of our sporting bodies are run,” he said.

He also said that staff working in football clubs would benefit from Labour’s plans to ban the use of zero-hour contracts and introduce a living wage worth at least £10 an hour.

Harvey Elliot has been suspended from club football for 14 days and fined £350 for that video he made mocking Harry Kane.

Did he mock Harry's magic chin or something?

I believe he called him a mong.

We've resigned Michel Vorm for the rest of the season. 

 

Problems solved.

We're winning a game of football, and Theo Walcott is playing well.

Seven changes to the Spurs XI. Harry Kane, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Moussa Sissoko are the players to retain their spots. Dele Alli and Lucas Moura both in from the start.


Tottenham Hotspur: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Aurier, Sissoko, Winks, Rose, Alli, Lucas Moura, Kane.
Subs: Son, Lamela, Dier, Foyth, Ndombele, Davies, Austin.


Looks like three at the back, possibly.

What the hell was that disallowed goal about? And why is VAR not being used in times it might actually be of use? Guess those pubic hair offsides are more important.

Sounds like VAR made an absolute hash of the Spurs equaliser. To the extent it said No Goal on the VAR check screen. Ffs.

Levy has played a blinder signing VAR for Tottenham this season

      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
