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 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.*

*100% of sometimes. Harry Kane and Ben Mee say otherwise. 
 

Have to say, neither keeper is inspiring any confidence.

Pickford is a danger. I wish we'd drop him.

He has made a good save from TAA but the foul on VVD is horrendous. No need for it at all and yes,should have been off.

Of course I played my Wildcard this weekend and changed four of the back five...keeping Van Dijk. Cheers Jordan.

Right so technically Michael Oliver and VAR was correct not to send him off. That tackle would be serious foul play, so the offside supersedes it.

Had it been violent conduct, offside or not, it is a red card.

You can hate the rules, but not the officiating.

You know a player can be sent off before the game and after the game etc. Can a player be sent off for an earlier indiscretion? He’s 100% picking a red up after this match as he didn’t get any action against him.

Not during the game, no. And I don't know if they changed it when VAR came in, but it used to be that retrospective action couldn't be taken if the referee at the time had seen and adjudged the incident in question. So if they looked at it with VAR and decided to take no action they might not be able to.

@MadJack I've not seen much of Olsen but I'd take anyone over Pickford's nonsense at this point. The defence cannot be confident having him behind them.

VVD going off and the stop in play as a result just threw Liverpool's momentum off for a while. Liverpool are ripping Everton apart in their half a lot of the time.

I think you'd very quickly go back to Pickford. Olsen isn't Adrian levels of bad - he's stealing a living right now - but he was signed by Roma as a replacement for Allison, big shoes to fill, and they very very quickly moved onto other options.

Certainly not a terrible keeper or anything, but definitely not able to replace Pickford long term.

That's fine, I don't want him long term but in the short term, Pickford needs taking out of the firing line. I've said the same about Maguire, sometimes a refresher is needed especially with keepers.

Peter Walton is chatting utter garbage. Doesn’t know the rules anymore, fucking dinosaur.

He really is. And the pundits are agreeing with him.

      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.
