Premier League 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Mourinho would be the death knell for the vibrant young Spurs ethos, surely.

I think he totally lost the plot by the end of his Man Utd tenure.

I just feel sad. Sad that a great manager has left our club, sad that someone who seems to be a really decent guy has got the blame for so many other people's mistakes, sad that the club is run by a chairman who thinks this is a good decision, and sad that any slight hope we had of remaining at the top has gone. 

 

Thank you for everything Poch.

Quite sad that in his first tough spell as manager, he gets the sack. I think he was a genuinely class manager and will go on to a big job at some point in the next year.

Really hope they don't go Mourinho, but I fear they will. The problems with him were glaringly obvious to see most of the way through his stint at United.

Sky Sports reporting that Mourinho and Spurs have been in discussions and it’s looking likely.

I cannot wait to see a Mourinho/Levy relationship meltdown next summer, if not before.

Sounds that way. I just hope we can get a tiny bit of a decent run under him before he inevitably fucks it.

I'm actually very interested in where Poch goes. 

Would Man Utd still keep Ole now that he's free?

Mourinho as Spurs boss just sounds like a weird fit. Plus, they don't spend money, and all Jose does is spend money. I don't get this.

I think this may work out well in the short term for Spurs. If theres a guy who can turn a team into horrible bastards who'll get results its him. 

I'd probably say expectations aren't as high for him managing Spurs then when he was at United (no offence) which may be a blessing. 

Problem is you've got two clear sides of Mourinho with no middle ground. The guy who'll get players to run through walls for him or the guy who'll alienate everyone and start sulking and be a miserable bastard. 

Be interesting to see the dynamic with Levy as well considering Spurs needs strengthening in certain areas.

Mourinho will probably win a trophy for them. Is that what they're after? I don't see his tactics winning them the league, but a cup, sure. Maybe even the CL. 

They undoubtedly have a very good coach in Mourinho but he's been criticised for outdated tactics and boring football so I'm interested to see how it pans out.

I will say this; it wasn't a "tough spell." It was basically February to now, outside of the Champions League knockout stage and a couple matches against Red Star Belgrade. I think the main person to blame is Levy and I hate that Pochettino is gone, but at least some of it has to fall on him.

Thing is, that Chelsea team when he first came to England played some good football and steamroller through people. Problem is, he got to a point of just wanting to win. Which while it can get results can be very boring. 

Maybe a team with slightly less expectations then the 2nd and 3rd runs at Chelsea, United and Madrid could do him good?

I wish him well whatever happens. His time at Utd was nowhere near as bad as people liked to make out.

I see a lot of rage at Levy and stuff but... Overall it was Poch who was screwing things up. I can't believe anyone watching a game hasn't spotted issues and seen something needs changing approximately 10 minutes before it cost Spurs the game. I'm a big fan of Trips and miss him at the club... but Aurier was playing a lot last year in a rotation with Trips anyway so ultimately there have been no losses in personnel on the field and with some misfortune with new players being injured should not be suddenly worse than teams like Newcastle, Bournemouth, Burnley and so on. I like Poch, but the Champions League papered over some big problems (and dodgy handball aside, the final showed where the problems were as well, the team not playing like they were 1-0 down until late in the second half, dropping players in great form and so on) and this year they seem to have been magnified, Champions League qualification with this set up should be a minimum and it looks like that's already gone, how much longer could the club leave it? I liked Poch but found myself getting more frustrated with how things are at the club and his management.

 

On the other hand, I've always been a big fan of Jose, I love the free flowing attacking style and his man management is second to none. He's wonderful at moulding young players into superstars and achieves a lot of success by being thrifty with finances and not spending huge amounts of money. His post match press conferences are also full of cool headedness and a lot of wisdom and astute, honest observations.

Is this some other Jose Mourinho I'm not aware of?

      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.

    • By DavidMarrio
      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
