Premier League 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Didn't realize what order it was in and got baffed how they lost in the first round of the cup but went on to beat Portsmouth in the second.

That goal shouldn’t save him but I think it will.

Setting the team up with three centre-backs and two non-creative midfielders at home to a team that has lost 8 out of their last 9 games is fucking atrocious. 

He’s way, way too conservative and worried about the opposition. No disrespect to Southampton, but they shouldn’t be having 6 more attempts on goal than us at the Emirates.

Sack him already, this is only going to get worse.

I suppose anything less than a 6-0 defeat here is an improvement?

Not to disagree with any of those points, but it was never a penalty either. Soft as fuck.

I like Emery as a person but hes clearly not working at Arsenal, the players look clueless and the defense/press is so passive its ridiculous. Something has to change but I honestly don't know where to start.

Damn it.

Don't worry, if it carries on like this you'll smash them.

You're playing like we normally do against them, and they've got a really soft underbelly when you actually go at them.

They're not the only team on the pitch like that. :(

Can't see Marco Silva lasting through the week, and if he does, a loss at Leicester next week will presumably seal his fate. Looking forward to David Moyes 2: Electric Boogaloo at this point.

With all the respect in the world to Everton, Poch isn't going to go to Everton.

Clearly. We're 18 months into this now and he still doesn't know his best XI, still doesn't know which system to use and still doesn't know how he wants us to play tactically. 

Oh, and he still keeps setting the team up wrong. We are playing Southampton at home, why do we need a back 3 with two not-so-creative midfielders? It's daft. Southampton are a team that haven't won in 9 league games, why are we approaching the game so cautiously? We have arguably the best squad that we have had in years and we play this "Oh, we're scared of the opposition" football. It's becoming a chore to watch us play. 

After the game, Emery said that he and the team are "looking for solutions" to stop the constant barrage of attacks at Bernd Leno. We're half-way through the season, we're past looking for solutions on the field, it's what is happening on the training ground and the decisions that the coach are making that are leading to these shit performances. 

Anyone could look at our squad and know we should be doing much, much better.

I’ve just seen Raheem Sterling’s disallowed goal and I don’t understand it.

Nvm Lingard on to change the game.

Doubt he will personally but that extra man further forward should help. It certainly can't be any worse.

Only see it ending 2 or 3 nil at the mo.

Really starting to wonder why I didn't back this with cash rather than just in the predictor...

Well this is going well.

Why does Phil Jones still start games?

If it makes you feel any better, Smalling scored and got MOTM for Roma this weekend

      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
