Pretty poor game. Smalling and Darmain good at the back, Romero got better in the second half. Rooney still lazy as usual but on the whole not too bad.



Wahey.

And that's why you don't pack your whole pre season into the 9 days before the season starts, it was like watching AVB's team again.
3-0 Leicester after 25 mins.
Leicester 3-0 Sunderland after only 25 minutes.
Chelsea 2-2 Swansea atm, Courtois sent off.
Not good during preseason and not good today. Not very surprising, but I hoped for more...

Was the right call by the referee. Fucking stupid Willian

Jesus that was difficult to read.

Howe out?
Norwich pretty much robbed by the ref. Two dreadful decisions.

Anyone else see that Villa fan go over the barriers and faceplant into the pitch when the Villa players were celebrating

Wasn't Willian's fault. Rewind the footage a further 10 seconds back and you'll see he's doing exactly as he's asked to do - track the run of Montero who would have been clean in behind had he not. The issue wasn't Willian, even though he was the one that played Gomis onside. It was the whole defensive line trying to push up, despite the fact they're all slow - in turn leaving Tibo to play as a sweeper keeper.

Irrespective of that. We were horrible and I didn't expect much different. We are set up so terrible that's it's no wonder we're so out of sorts all over the park.

A RB at LB, a CB at RB = no overlap on the attack, which gives us no width because our "wide" players are instructed to tuck inside like inverted wide forwards would. Hence we force everything through the middle. Then when that plan doesn't work we just jump crosses into the box as an awe-inspiring plan B. No wonder our forwards struggle to much in general and hardly get a sniff of a decent chance. Also explains why the the only strikers that do well here are physical ones that can play with their back to goal and use their body to push defenders around.

Could be in for an extremely long season tbh.
What a twat Jamie Vardy is.

Bassong going down in the area, looked a penalty to me.

Gotta love Mbemba:

Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Good to see Rodriguez back. Also I bet that new Southampton right back, Cedric Soares, is pronounced Cedric Suarez.
What was Cech playing at there
Poor from Cech.

Glad Pelle scored, I'm having a good start to Fantasy Football.
Cech will gain us 15 points over the season they said
ZARATE \o/

Arsenal players don't seem to care, they just stood there and watched Zarate shoot. 'Wenger out' brigade will be in full flow afterwards.
But this is there year.

Booing on the first day of the season. Classic Arsenal.

"England ace, Jamie Vardy"

Well done, the Sun.
Newcastle game was entertaining. 2-2 seemed fair - we looked better first half, but they were better in the second. Also not convinced by Haidara defensively, and the team shape seemed better with Anita than with Tiote. Also impressive that Mitrovic's first action was a heavy duty challenge on a player coming back from a long-term injury.

Reece Oxford sounded like had an awesome game. Arsenal, less so.
noir et blanc armée

Read my FM20 Career WAWAW

Just got back from the game, that's two opening games I've been to and we've lost both. Not as bad as the Villa game though.

Don't think I should go again

Shocking saying this exactly 70 years after Pear Harbour.

Fucking love when a footballer does something - the articles are always hilarious.

Draw seems a fair enough result.

I though Haidara actually really improved in the second half, looked genuinely good, and had Tadic in his pocket. Wijnaldum looked good, Mbemba looked incredible. and overall it was a good performance.

McClaren seemed incredibly lucky mind, his subs were woeful and Mitrovic looked a donkey.

It's great saying how you love to kick defenders, but its no good kicking a full back and nearly getting yourself sent off, and then not winning a first ball, and being in Fonte's pocket.

If Newcastle still have money to spend. Think Shane Long should maybe be the one to go for.

Obertan - Still great!!!!
