Living in the US we are pretty lucky where regional designations mean if we pay for cable we get basically every game from our local teams. NFL is king though and you just need an antenna to watch your local team (distribution is mapped to local network affiliates). If you have satellite you can get NFL Sunday Ticket which gives you every game. If you have cable or live streaming services Redzone is available which is really the best thing since it shows all the pivotal moments of every game basically as they happen.

Our leagues make a killing in out of market fans who have no means to basically watch their teams. They have to pay up for something to see their favorite team. This is harder to replicate in the UK where everyone is so close together. Multiple London teams basically make it impossible to replicate what the NFL does here. So no one is "in market" or "out of market". I think because of that a proper game pass program makes sense for some fans. But a pay-per-game model is really shady because that's not done anywhere else as far as I know.

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

Score more goals than they do.

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😂

I love the Redzone concept, BT Sport do it for the Champions League midweek games. I'd quite like it for the 3pm Saturday games, but then that goes completely against my belief in protecting the lower leagues. Aargh.

Out of interest, would anyone here actually want just a season pass for your own club?

I don't watch as much footie as I used to, but generally end up watching the Sunday games (while ironing. Living the dream) regardless of who's on. I couldn't think of anything worse than just watching Newcastle games, unless they somehow worked out a way to make them play themselves every week.

Do you iron out of choice or because you are made to do it?

I last used an iron in Paris on 19 February this year to get my shirt looking good ahead of a job interview. I didn't get the job, and a couple of weeks later Paris was plunged into lockdown. That's what an iron will do for you.

Anyone else think that Liverpool are going to smash Everton today? Don’t think it’ll quite be a 7-2 though.

There's definitely goals in this one - and Adrian aside, I feel like this is Liverpool's strongest side. 4-2 Liverpool.

Shouldn't Pickford be off for that?

Edit:

How can you say that's offside...Van Dijks fingernail. 

The small armed dozy cunt got away with that there

I guess the offside supersedes it, which I’d have thought shouldn’t be the case.

Admittedly I am okay with that, makes things more interesting at 11vs11.

Reminded me of Ben Mee’s foul which injured Wesley last season.

Sound how we've lost our best centre back because of that brain dead tosser and don't get a pen.

I thought it was armpit? Or hem of the sleeve? The VAR ref has basically drawn and redrawn a line on Virgil's arm until he got an offside.

Also, a scissor tackle to a player's standing leg is a red card 100% of the time.

      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.
