I'm a homer though, so who knows.
    I don't think Rafa makes it to Christmas. The club is a couple poor results away from a fan and/or player mutiny.

    Last year was a serious grind and there's little reason to think this year will be any different. It's truly a disgrace that the ownership at Newcastle seems more than content to field a team that's just barely good enough to survive relegation. That's a club that should safely be top 8-10 year in year out.

    The mutiny wonít be against Rafa though. If you donít think he makes Christmas then you have to be betting he quits.

    I'm feeling much more optimistic about my Toffees this year. Not enough to crack the Sky Six, but I do have them in 7th, unlike last year when I picked them to finish 10th.
    Counting is hard. That's why i used numbers.

    Whoops, I forgot your boys. I used Tim's and copied and pasted and tried to move names around. I believe I had y'all between Leicester and Fulham.

    Off to a good start with the refereeing...

    Which handball was called? I thought it was Amartey, which seemed fairly obvious, however Arlo and Robbie seemed to think it as called on Morgan.

    I is confused.

    Go up 1-0 in the 4th minute on a 50-50 pen, then bunker in for the next 86 mins. I see you Jose.

    Mourinho's tactics make catenaccio look like geggenpressing.

    Maddison is great, I already like him.

    Yeah he looks very lively

    Also Superman Dave already to the rescue. They'll probably still win, but the in the first 30 minutes Pogba's side has looked like ManUre.

    That joke never gets old.

    Can Vardy come on halftime? If he's even remotely fit he'll destroy this bunker.

  19. #259
    Lets have a Vardy Party

    Luckily for Rom the Foxes have run out of gas, or that missed sitter would really hurt
