Wasn’t expecting this discussion to sink so rapidly to the level of Louise Mensch on HIGNFY but there you go.   And that’s not even addressing the blindingly obvious fact that Boei

Nothing or Nothing: Arsenal

Naughty from Godfrey that.

Yeah, that's a straight red. More VAR incompetence, and that's coming from an Everton fan. May have accidentally called out Mike Dean for a minute there without him having seen the foul.

I am really not looking forward to this match. The walkout, however, I hope is a success.

That walkout was the most Everton thing I've seen. More people left on Wednesday! 

Honestly, it has shades but to a worse extent of Rafa's end with us and the discontent with our owners at the time. It was very toxic going the game with fans basically battling one another. The fans need to sing from the same songsheet in a sense if they want to see any change. 

Even taking my red tinted glasses off. What is Everton? What style do they play, what is the identity of the club, what sort of players do they have. It's all too disjointed

Who's the protest against though? The owners? The manager? A woolly mix of both? We've had a decade of similar attempts at Newcastle bit at least the target and reasoning tended to be there, and even then the impact was mixed until the point 20,000 season ticket holders packed it in. You can't really protest about being a bit average.

Lol, Richarlison.

It's definitely aimed at Moshiri. Brands was hamstrung by too many fingers in the transfer pie (Moshiri/Kenwright/manager) and Koeman/Walsh spunking hundreds of millions on distinctly below average players. Kenwright for his faults kept us stable during darker financial times and at least has the nerve to face the fans. Benitez is somewhat set in his ways for better or worse, and is more of a symptom than a cause. Moshiri refuses to relinquish control to the people he's paying to deal with things (Iwobi was wanted by neither manager nor DoF but Moshiri forced it through), refuses to face the fans or even address them directly. This is the worst we've been for over a decade and I think the mood around the club is just very negative. A lot of that might be down to the fans, but the board aren't blameless either.

Feels like a really shit game. Timewasting in the 75th minute against Everton, come on.

Can't understand bringing on Nketiah when he wants to leave and has never done anything for us, especially when club signing Pepe is sitting right there. He has to be a better option, surely? Don't know how Xhakas getting 90 minutes, he looks out of his arse.

And that was a long time coming. The 2nd overruled one shouldn't have been chopped off but there you go. Shit game.

Demarai Gray is ace.

Commiserations to Gabriel and Tavares, who spent more time in the last 25 minutes time wasting on the floor than trying to play football.

Great block by Godfrey at 1-1 to deny Odegaard as well...

Okay I can't embed twitter since I don't use it but that is fucking vile.

Sounds like the afflicted Spurs players are supposedly Son, Moura, Gil, Emerson, Davies, Cuti (who was injured anyway), plus Mason and Stellini from the coaching team. Not ideal.

More positive results are expected from the round of extensive testing.

      I thought it would be appropriate to start this thread because the season starts one month from now (on 12 September) and because we have also found out that the fixtures will be announced on 21 August.
      We don’t know much at this stage, but I think it is safe to say that each team will play 38 games, coming up against each of the other 19 teams once at home and once away. There will of course be the standard 26 December game and exhaustive festive run, because tradition > common sense.
      Apart from when it comes to introducing VAR, of course.
      I hope all your teams exceed expectations this season, even though such an occurrence is impossible given that if one team is to perform better than expected, another must, sadly, fall up short. I can only pray that those of you who find their team in this position will not take this disappointment too hard.
      Finally, I want to say a little bit about why I have started this thread, despite not really supporting any one Premier League team (although I am of course happy to see West Brom and Fulham returning to the top flight after a lengthy absence; these giants of the game have been away for too long). I have started this thread because we all need to chip in and help Lineker. We sit idly by while he starts all these threads and it’s just not on. The poor boy isn’t getting any younger and I’m starting to worry that he might burn out. I wouldn’t want to see that, so get your shoulders to the wheel everyone.

      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.
