    Adama Traore wasn’t playing because he didn’t know he needed a passport to go to Armenia

    Abraham I reckon, at least until he goes 0 in the first 13.

    2 weeks for Bury to save themselves. Genuinely think they could fold, and may well be the first of more to come and the financial disparity in football grows.

    I know they are more United side of the city, but if I was Sheikh Makhtoum I would give them 10 million or whatever they need to bail out. Best PR ever.

    Will the league just carry on with 23 teams, or what?

    Assume so as the season has started. Not sure how Bury’s fixtures will be accounted for (cancelled out/default 3pts for other side?) or what will happen to relegation/promotion, although I assume just 3 will be relegated from League 1 and the normal 4 will be promoted. Perhaps an extra promotion slot for a Conference side or one less team relegated from League 2.

    A few teams have dissolved in the greek league over the past few years and all their fixtures get a loss with 3-0.

    Pretty good idea, presumably by some committed Arsenal fans, to harass Ozil and Kolasinac so they don't play.

    That could be a good thing. Ozil shows bo fight on or off the field.

    After they merked off that gang last week or so it appears the gang have not taken kindly to it and have targeted them a couple more times. Presume that Arsenal are having trouble getting armed security for family members.

    Both teams playing with just 2 at the back. Liverpool should get twelve if they're arsed, and Norwich should get three.

    VAR not checking for keepers coming off their lines for pens is strange. You know as soon as a keeper saves one and the replay shows the keeper off his line, the manager and pundits will go absolutely mental. Can't wait.

    Last 4 times Liverpool have scored 4 in the first half? Norwich, Arsenal, Arsenal, Norwich.

    Aarons seems fine to me, he shouldn’t have to be defending against 6’2 players. It’s a systematic failure.

    Mignolet sits patiently behind Alisson all year and doesn't get a sniff. Adrian comes in and get on in his first day on the job.

    Hopefully just a twisted knee or muscle pulled.

    I'd missed Drmic signing for Norwich. He looked like being brilliant for a while.

    I wonder what marketing nonsense resulted in Sky adding little flags beside the player names on their chyrons.

    Not bad. 4-1 win whilst not really playing well can't be sniffed at.

    Hopefully Alisson is only a few weeks away.

    More concerning is how bad Alexander-Arnold looked tonight. Perhaps a lack of competition is a bad thing for him.

    I can't remember if he's normally really good or really bad at crossing (it's definitely one of those), but he was the latter in that game. And crossing is basically his only job vs bottom half sides (aside from running fast) so it's kind of important.

    He is a crap defender who would be FOUND OUT in pretty much any other team (or alongside any other centre-back); but his attacking is really good for Liverpool so whatever.

    Norwich are going down hard if their takeaway from that game is that they showed character to not get done 8-0. The better sides will just lol their way past them, and the more limited teams will take the chances they're afforded without offering up the same in return. Maybe that would happen regardless, considering their limited resources, but having Martin Tyler wetting his pants that it could be 4-4 because you've had a couple of quarter chances isn't going to help.

    Encouraging signs of a return to madness ball, fuck defensive solidity. Get Mané and a few more attacking midfielders in there.

    My outlandish prediction in that thread really should have been we will see a double figure score in the PL. Defensive solidity as a strategy is so out of vogue, fans just hate it and will not allow it.

    I think Norwich will be fine. They'll probably beat Steve Bruce's Newcastle next week. Bournemouth have never bothered with defending and they've been around ages now.

    If they stay up they'll have done well. They got a bit fortunate last season I think, but they are intense as hell and their left back looks good.

    I think you can say the same for most teams that get promoted. The first season is always a tough one, although you go occasionally get sides that get a weird first season bounce that puts them in a false position for a while that keeps them safe (Blackpool, Huddersfield, Ipswich in 2001).

    There are 5 or 6 teams that could feasibly go down this season, including the 3 new teams.
