Score more goals than they do.

Fucking hell Mad Jack anyone would think Lamela started a football club in Miami the way you keep banging on about him.

I know some football fans are biased to the point of comedy, but this is one of the biggest displays of spouting pure bollocks I've seen in a while, so fair play for that at least😂

When did the attacking handball rule change?

I don't think it changed. I think they didn't deem it leading to a goal as the play moved on. Martin Tyler mentioned the "immediacy" of it I think. Only way I can see how it's not disallowed.

Certainly looked like a handball no? If it’s always going to be given against the defending side, it should definitely always be given against the attacking side as well.

The rule is different for attackers and defenders, for attackers it doesn't even have to be 'deliberate'. That's why I'm baffled that was allowed. It's a stupid rule but it's a rule.

I guess they decided it didn't "immediately" lead to a goal, as in a direct assist.

That's definitely a change though, last season there were handballs given 4 or 5 passes prior to the goal. It was a horrible rule so I'm happy if it's been refined, but I'm not convinced it has.

They - they being Gary Lineker - seemed to explain it as a rule change, or slight alteration. Who knows at this point.

I personally think the Everton one is a penalty? Ward's hand was outside the "silhouette" or whatever you want to call it and moving away from his body, his hand hitting it has stopped the trajectory of the ball in the box. Penalty. Yet Hodgson is incredulous about it and all the MOTD sofa blokes were raging too.

Is it blue-tinted spectacles from me or are the old men all wrong?

We played well today, but we're not going to get results if we can't hit the target. Lunny should have scored in the first half. Thought we'd played well enough for a point, so the late goal was a bit of a stinger.

Any news on any strikers coming in?

Sadly nothing seems to have come from Brewster.  Last we heard we have been linked with giving Sturridge a short term 'prove it' contract.

      Wild and bold predictions, ahoy.

      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.
