Today's Football 12-9-20

Post by FactualFrank » Sat Sep 12, 2020 10:26 am

Arsenal vs Fulham
Palace vs Southampton
Liverpool vs Leeds
West Ham vs Newcastle

Plus a full schedule of Championship fixtures.

Unfortunately I think Leeds will get something from today's game and even possibly a shock defeat for Liverpool with it being the first game of the season. Hoping for a 5-0 win for Liverpool.

Clubs coming up from the Championship always seem to do well in the first few games because they are full of confidence.

I do hope Leeds's confidence takes a knock today though.

I think Leeds might give Liverpool a bit of a scare today but fancy the Champions to get it done in the end. I can see the league being a lot closer this year. Liverpool can't keep up the same pace for 3 seasons in a row, United and Chelsea should be a lot closer to the top 2.

I don't expect Chelsea to challenge for the title, but if Man U get Sancho (although it seems that won't happen now), then they'd have more of a chance I reckon. I can't see past City or Liverpool though.

City will walk it this year. If Klopp can win it again it’d out do the CL win and last year. 3 seasons on the trot without any first 11 signings would be some doing. But in reality I have then down as Top 4 chasers with Spurs and Arsenal. Their better than them, but you can’t play the way they do and keep doing it and doing it, especially without changes.

Not sure what suggests that City will walk it. Liverpool got 99 points last season and won't be any weaker this season.

Good. I want the 3 that came up to get pummeled early on and lose any confidence they may have. I want them thinking “b0llocks, this is going to be impossible”.

I think City will be rejuvenated after last season whereas Liverpool have done what they’ve wanted to do for 2 years, win the league. I just can’t see Liverpool doing again 3 years on the run (points wise). I can’t see Man U/Chelsea finishing above both Liverpool and City. So from my pov it’ll be City, Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool.

Fulham trying their best, but a distinct lack of quality on show from them, piece o p1ss for Gunners.
Early days though, but they'll do well to stay up.

Arsenal looking a far better team with Willian

Fulham back line looks vulnerable

Fulham look out of their depth on this evidence, Arsenal could fill their boots here, Willian is having a stonking debut.

They did, but even in that league they leaked goals, if they don't sort their defensive woes out ASAP, it'll be a long hard winter for them, they don't seem to have improved from their last visit to the PL. Early days of course, and they'll be hoping to pick up points against the lesser teams.

Very early days but a dodgy defence and inexperienced manager doesn’t bode well.

Chelsea haven't got any good defenders. They conceded 54 goals last season.

Wins in the Champ for Birmingham and Rotherham in the early games, Bristol City with a 1st minute goal against Coventry, an assist for Nahki.

Sheff Wed 1 up at Cardiff, they need to hit the ground running due to their 12 point deduction.

It’s all a bit much. I’ve updated the league table, updated the U23 & U18s fixtures and league tables and got something on site for both their games. All while I’m trying to watch football on tv.

I’ve not missed a goal yet.

Harrogate 2 to the good, and Stanley leading Peterborough, that would be a big opening day win for them if they hang on.

Bolton behind to FGR, welcome to L2.
