6 Arsenal
7 Leicester
8 Spurs
9 Everton
10 Sheff Utd

2 Man City
3 Man U
4 LFC
5 Arse
6 Wolves

Bottom three - Villa, WBA and Fulham

Daaaamn son. I’m really hoping that’s an attempt at a reverse-jinx, which I can respect.

I do get where he is coming from. I have a worry we’ll lose a small bit of motivation this season and could end up going a bit stale like in extent Tottenham seems to have done having the same team for so long. This team has been together for a long while and might need refreshing. There is no one better at getting players motivated than Klopp though🙂

No way will Chelsea win the league. They are buying way too many first choice starters in the wrong window to be able to build any sort of cohesion or understanding. I can see them being mid table in December with Lampard getting the arse.

Also struggle to see how City will turn around 19 points as they aren’t addressing their key weaknesses - no decent alternative for Fernandino as their chief snide midfield hacker stopping opponents counter attacks if he is not selected or if he is playing CB as apart from Laporte, the rest of the CB’s are all utter gash, and whilst I do like Ake, he isn’t really that much better than anyone else they have to be able to turn aound a 19 point gap.

Indeed. With the purchases they’re making, I would say they’re basically us in 13/14, except their attackers aren’t as good, their defence is worse and their manager is less experienced.

Interestingly England didn’t get a penalty yesterday until a Man Utd player was on the pitch. Shocking Bruno Fernandez didn’t pop up out of no where to take that, maybe if Harry Kane wasn’t around to claim it…

  1. Manchester City: because Bald Fraud will cry if he doesn’t get his way
  2. Manchester United: due to getting at least one dubious penalty per game
  3. Chelsea: best team on paper cough but football isn’t played on paper. And their defence is shit.
  4. Everton: for the bantz.

  1. Liverpool. because we’re shit and all our success has been due to VAR and Klopp is nothing but a gurning cheerleader.

I’m happy for us to be talked down, have done the last two seasons and they’ve been the best two for 30 years.

The Guardian has tipped us for 1st, though, which is deeply troubling…

Just noticed that Wolves are down to basically only 3 central midfielders at the moment.

Neves, Moutinho and Dendoncker. Plus Saiss, mainly a defender who can do a job in midfield.

Gibbs-White and Jordao have left on loans. Let’s see what they do there.
