ive tried with international friendlies ovr the year, Mild.
i really have. but they always go the same way.
just when it looks like a game is about to break out, they make 5 substitutions and destroy the rhythm.
they hype up the history betwn scotland and england bt scots are fairly awful at the moment and england arent much better.

may be wrong but iam expecting eithr a 0-0 draw or a fairly easy and tired 2/3 nil win.

tg - rumour has it there is a big lunchtime derby coming on saturday, leeds v sheff somebody or other. is it united? no, i think theyre in league two, but obviously thats west hams fault. maybe its the other mob, sheffield thursday? on saturday. how confusing.

Well, it begins tomorrow!
I'm having a sequel to Four Weddings and a Funeral tomorrow called Two Fiftieths, A Stag-do and The Footy Day out!
That's two mates who celebrated being 50 this past week, another mate getting hitched in two weeks and our Annual Footy day out at season's start (yep, I may be 48 but I still play footy every Sunday morning...sometimes twice if I play Thursday night!). There'll be about 15 of us in't pub.
Full English at 11-30 in town, 12-30 for the Liverpool/Stoke game, 3-00 watching the Everton game (snoooooze), then half five for the Mancs (c'mon Swansea!!).
Hip (Hic) Hooray! smile

sounds like action packed day kev. you are very brave playing at 48.

i played sunday morning football against 20 year old pups till was about 45 then vets for a few years.
got harder and harder and the knees creaked!!
eventually the bruises took weeks to heal instead of 2 days!!

i never feel overly enthusiastic about the start of the season. takes till about october before i get into it.

Maybe we should do a weekly scoreboard of the talked-about teams in this thread? Or realistically, I'll post it and everyone else will ignore it. big grin

Week 1: August 17, 2013

West Ham 2 Cardiff City 0--No shots on target for CC--welcome to the new boys! wink

Liverpool 1 Stoke City 0--Sturridge again! Mignolet denies penalty in debut! First home opening win since 2001! Start "body-popping" again, Thomas!

Swansea City 1 Manchester United 4--a brace each for RVP and Welbeck in Moyes' debut as manager!

Welcome to the Premier League 2013-14 season. cool

Im still waiting to hear about Kev's action packed day, Jim.
Maybe hes still a bit fragile and we've got to whisper?

By all accounts West Ham were fairly ordinary and Cardiff worse.
We scored our goals - well taken ones - but didnt really flow.

I saw the first 25 mins of the United game. They looked very shaky and couldve been 2-0 down. But in true spawny United style they got away with it and started scoring. Van Persie's finishing was the big difference that turned the game.

Arsenal was funny!!! All that money and theyre soppy manager still wont buy anyone.
Booed off the pitch (and the ref, who awarded two penalties, one looked a little suspect but he was proven correct). Villa played well.

Over the past few years Arsenal have seemed so lifeless and they have a respected manager who nevertheless appears to be afraid to spend company money! I think Arsenal need to realize that you *can* spell "Arsenal" without the "Arsene."

Jurassic Kev is back on line! smile

Hefty day yesterday. But playin' footy this morning has blown some of the cobwebs away.

Yeah, 3 points for Liverpool but once again, a game that should have been hosed and home (or is that home and hosed...still drunk) by half-time became another frantic cling-on for points against poor opposition. Their goalie played a blinder but then ours did too (at the end) to ensure we finally won an opening game!
The pub we were in couldn't get the Everton game on at 3 so all the blues walked to the next pub to watch them, but we stayed and watched the Arse/Villa game. Quality comedy smile
The mancs were indeed same old/same old. 30 odd minutes of wobble/battering...then bing bang bong oh look they've won.
Well done on your 3 points Bill. Pretty easy by all accounts.
Leeds drew again I see.
Jim, who are you cheering for this year?

i think kev you should provide us with weekly match reports on your sunday morning games, given you probably the only one on here who still plays?!

yeah jim, asenal are a mess. their fans wont have it but they have committed themselves to a man whose judgment has become dodgy and no ones questionning it. crazy. great for tottenham west ham and chelsea fans because we all have a good laugh at their expense. They flounder and limp along when they could be major contenders, but Wenger has amost become an internal assassin, sabotaging their progress and potential with blunders and obstinacy.

I'll be the villain of this thread and just say Manchester United. big grin

Truthfully, I would love to see someone other than United, Chelsea, or Manchester City win the PL. The one thing about this game I *don't* like is the lack of parity. The PL isn't as bad as La Liga, but it's such a big money league whereas in American sports a small-market team can occasionally "shock the world" and win the championship. I would love for, say, West Ham to take it but that just doesn't happen in this league.

I'm quite fond of Crawley Town, actually. If I were an Englander wink I would root for the team of the city in which I grew up. Otherwise it just feels like I'm "team shopping."

Remember two years ago when Arsenal stumbled out of the gate and yet still managed to finish one point ahead of Tottenham, who had a collapse of their own at the end of the season, denying the latter a CL spot? Arsenal are a maddeningly uneven team with some great players and a once-great manager. Hard to believe they haven't won a trophy of any kind in nearly, what, ten years now?

By the way, when were the PL fixtures decided? It makes me think that Chelsea was allowed an "easy" opponent over the likes of Hull to get "The Special One" off and running.

You're getting in to the swing of being a Man U fan, Jim. Moyes (who's got a lot to live down to) was moaning about them having a hard start - as if they didn't have to play each team twice at some point anyway.

Well let's not let it affect *our* relationship, TG. I would hate to sacrifice ten years of whatever the hell it is you and I share over you supporting a team in receivership. wink

That's okay Jim - some of my best friends support Manches.... Nope - can't say it.

But we've been through too much together to let a little thing like this come between us. Besides, we've been in administration before and had to make up minus 15 points. Damn nearly got promotion that year too.

Not to worry, Elongated Hombre, I will always keep an eye on the table to see if your beloved Leeds United (and my partial favorite, Blackburn) rise from the Championship ashes to the glory of promotion.
