Let's start the season off with a 5 year old quote from an Arsenal fan: :D

2 rounds in (almost) and no draws. Amazing.

32 matches played and only 3 draws. Possibly just me but I feel this is quite an aberration.

Probably because there's about 25 soft penalties from the VAR every week! :evil:

That one against Dier last round was complete madness, they have to alter the rule

Gee whiz, as if Spurs winning 6-1 at Old Trafford wasn't huge enough, Aston Villa go and beat Liverpool 7-2! :shock:

.... and West Ham win 3 - 0 at Leicester. Crazy stuff. Could be an interesting season. Still not the same without the fans.

This is the weirdest start to an EPL season on record.

Surely it has something to do with the whole Covid / no crowds etc.

I was always worried the no crowds might affect us more than most. Same with other clubs with big followings like Man U, although it doesn’t explain City’s blips given they’re used to playing in front of empty stadiums.

Lot to like about what Everton have been doing since Ancelotti got there - Will they come back to the pack or continue on their merry way?

After watching a few episodes of All or Nothing and I can now see why Jim rates Jose Mourinho so highly. I think it's changed my thoughts on him completely.
An amazing person.

Spurs lead 3-0 at half time. West Ham made it 3-3 in the last minute.

Journo. Jose, you were powerful, dominating and 3-0 up at half time. What happened?

Jose. Football.

Journo. Football?

Jose. Well of course I will analyse the second half but I do that internally. For you I just say Football.

Loved it.

Shithouse weekend for the defending champs. Wrong side of some VAR Controversy that means we take a point instead of 3 and keeps the opposition goalie on the pitch for a shocking challenge that sees the worlds best defender now out injured for 12 months, all while still trying to compete with an average at best no. 2 keeper between the posts.

Barring an expensive purchase in the mid-season transfer window, we can’t win the title without Virg.

Given the passion in that game and too many supporters willingness to go over the top, I'm not sure he'd want to be walking the Merseyside streets alone lol.
