Maybe, but you're not taking into consideration the fact that WBA are playing like we did yesterday, awful.


This. Despite how impressive City looked, West Brom were poor.
Interesting facts from the opening day. Manchester United are the only side to win the Premier League after losing on the opening day of the season. Arsenal had lost just one of their previous opening day fixtures and West Ham had lost more than any other side. Chelsea had won their opening game in each season they'd won the Premier League and had won every opening game under Mourinho.


EDIT: Maybe you can't read too much into it as it's the opening day of the season with a long, long way to go, but then again maybe you can. If history repeats it won't be Chelsea or Arsenal winning the Premier League this season.

In each of the last 5 seasons, the eventual champions have started their season on a monday. Good sign for West Brom then.
Mourinho is a fucking idiot.

Never seen Pulis with hair! Definitely better with it short and balding!

Tim Sherwood looks an entirely different person.
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

You two should get a room
Leslie Mark Hughes? I can see why he goes by Mark.
I'm loathe to mention him but Duncan Castle's has just written about the Chelsea physio shit storm and if there's one thing you can say about him its that he does seem to be close, or pretend to be close at the very least, to Mourinho.

Anyway, the articles intended to be a defence of Mourinho but the basic gist of it is that Carneiro has been demoted because as a woman she's too distracting for the players because they can't 'be themselves' in the dressing room.

On balance it seems a completely plausible explanation, and further shows Mourinho up as a misogynist -alongside he's very questionable remarks about Benitez wife - as well as all his other character flaws.
Bullshit reason considering they won the league last year.
I don't think Mourinho is sexist and this whole situation has nothing to do with gender. Mourinho is just simply being a twat.

I understand him getting annoyed at her going on social media, but he shouldn't have reacted like that in the first place. He's being disrespectful to his medical team, who were doing their job. They were called on by Michael Oliver to tend to Hazard, who incidentally wasn't injured, so if there's anyone to blame it's him. How is it fair to demote someone for doing their job correctly?

Castles said the team have a problem with a female presence in the dressing room. They did fine last season, or have they had problems with her and only now have gone to the manager about it? Bullshit.

+1

Shocking treatment of staff just doing their job.

She's been first team doctor for years. "Misogynist." fucking lol.
So it turns out LvG and Hoek asked De Gea if he was in the right frame of mind to play, and he said no. It wasn't just LvG making an assumption.

The whole situation is a mess.

I can't defend or make excuses for De Gea anymore, not wanting to play and sub standard training performances, you've got a contract to honour.

If you believe that, you'll believe anything.

The whole situation has been blown well out of proportion, given that Mourinho didn't help the cause to make a point of the whole thing immediately afterwards. While both physio's were in the right to go onto the pitch after being given the all clear by the ref twice to come on- they can only enter the field of play when given the okay. Basically, Mourinho had words with BOTH Fearn and Carneiro (I believe there is footage of this) on the touch line, however the focus has been purely on it being Carneiro who was singled out; incorrect. She also retaliated back to what Mourinho said, didn't help. Mourinho also addressed BOTH in his after game interview. BOTH have been dropped by reports, however Fearn may stay given we need a physio on the bench.

All in all, it's a shit storm that should have been kept internal and dealt with in a in club manner. That falls on Mourinho, and not for the first time. The only thing it isn't though is sexist or has anything to do with Eva being female.
I didn't say I believed it, I said it was plausible which it is.

I think the whole thing is being blown up by the media looking for a story. De Gea might stay or he might go, but the situations exactly the same as it was last week, he's simply not being considered for selection whilst its ongoing and that is, in part, in consultation with him.

Come on Adnan.
i know its a bit early but anyone got a decent stream for the match? the site i used to use is garbage now
Thought Rudy might have got a start, he'd have more than fancied his chances of bagging one up against Blind, Smalling and a keeper who's new to the league.

Boring game so far, we're good in possession but so slow. Darmain is fucking brilliant, Smalling has been solid too.

Adnan's goal was superb, great run by him, superb pass by Mata and a good finish. I wish Rooney would stop going back to the halfway line, and I wish he'd stop being so shit.
I remember when Schweinsteiger was a skillful right winger, now he looks like a 40 year old Sunday league player.

This game is absolutely diabolical, the quality from both sides (Villa much worse) is bordering on non league and that's being generous.

Professional performance, better than last week, not an amazing game of football. We weren't very free flowing but once we brought Schweinsteiger and Herrera on we controlled the game.

The defence did very well, Schneiderin has settled in nicely, Depay looks like he's going to be great. All new signings did well tonight, although Romero was barely threatened. Mata was really good tonight, great pass for the goal and a couple of other good ones.

However Rooney, my fucking god he is so shit. Why oh why did we keep him? Slow, horrible first touch, we pretty much played with 10 men tonight. Useless.
