Premier League 2019/20

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure anyone was ever going to solidly succeed Wenger, it doesn't usually go well after such a big culture change. But it seems he lost control very quickly this season.

I expect Silva and Pellegrini are not far behind him in heading for the exit door.

David Pemsel has resigned as chief executive of the Premier League, two months before he was due to take up the role.

The Premier League must now resume their hunt for a new CEO and are faced with finding a third candidate to replace the long-serving Richard Scudamore, who stepped down in November of last year.

The Premier League said in a statement on Friday: “Following media disclosures earlier this week and discussions with David Pemsel, the Premier League has today accepted David’s resignation and he will no longer be joining as chief executive.

“Richard Masters will continue as interim chief executive. No further comment will be made at this stage.”

Pemsel, 51, was awarded the role just last month, when the Premier League announced his arrival from the Guardian Media Group.

Prior to this, the job had been given to broadcasting executive Susanna Dinnage, only for her to change her mind and decide to stay at the media group Discovery. Tim Davie, the chief executive of BBC Studios, was also reported to have turned down the opportunity.

Everton taken the lead, they've actually started very well in this game.

I'm honestly shocked, the players must actually like Marco Silva. :shifty:

Weird to be feeling disappointed coming away from Old Trafford with only a point. Don't which team that says more about. Much needed though, with Norwich and Newcastle picking up points against the top six this weekend.

Villa drawing meant I won Last Man Standing in work. 100 quid before Christmas payday will do nicely :)

I was looking back at some old league tables from this around this time previous years. I had a look back over the last few years at what the top of the table looked like after 14 games. It was crazy to look at 15/16 and see how low the points totals were at the top at that stage. Leicester (2nd) and City (1st) both had 29 points. Whereas usually the top 2 teams at least had cracked 30 by then.

It just reminded me how weird that season was.

Amazon's games aren't available here and are instead behind the red button on Premier Sports. Ugh. :(

I mean, I'm sure that there's some better example of how Roy Hodgson is old that isn't so much of a ridiculous lie.

How about "Roy Hodgson started his managerial career 6 years before the oldest active Premier League player this season (Phil Jagielka) was born"?

      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
