    You guys seem to be rating Stoke rather highly, maybe without European football we might not fall off in the middle of the season... and apparently we bought Michael Kightly.

    BTW, is anyone else playing Fantasy Premier League? If you are, we could make a private league.
    I'm already registered on Sky Sports, but considering it starts tomorrow we'd better be quick in setting it up!

    Yeah, we did. Woot, another stokie on the forums. I wouldn't say we might not fall off, because we may have a couple of decent runs in the cups. FA Cup seems like it may be our better run, I reckon. That'll make some of the players tired...but we did great with European and Domestic Cup Football...

    Made a team, unfortunately the deadline for the first gameweek has passed. Thankfully that means more time for anyone else to join I suppose.

    Now that Arsenal have agreed a fee of 19 million euros for Song, we have a very formidable team, probably even better than the squad Pep had to work with, so Barca's looking good for the new season, here's a prediction of the regular Starting IX:

    4-3-3

    Valdes
    Alves
    Puyol/Song
    Pique
    Alba
    Busquets
    Xavi
    Iniesta/Cesc
    Sanchez
    Leo Messi
    Villa

    I've rated Stoke highly ever since they got promoted to the top flight 4-5 years ago now. They've stayed up since and they've done well for themselves. Adapted nicely to the challenges of the Premier League.

    Crazy day of football, shame I missed Match of the Day, I'll have to catch it tomorrow morning. Can definitely say I did not see Fulham and Swansea winning 5-0!

    As far as Arsenal goes, could've been a better start than a 0-0, but I think our unit will gel soon enough. Could've been a lot worse! Especially since Spurs lost =D


    On a random side note, I've been simulating Football Manager 2012 to see what happens when the game plays itself. I'm in the year 2015, and there have been many humorous consequences, such as Mancini leading Man City to a league and UCL double, then leaving for Barcelona and getting another league and UCL double, Alex McLeish and Louis van Gaal keep whoring themselves to every Premier League club around, David Moyes has sunk to managing Leeds United in the Championship and Andre Villas Boas went through clubs to wind up at League One Middlesbrough. Every Premier League club has changed their manager at least once, except for Stoke City, who seem to be enjoying things with Tony Pulis still around.

    What you should say is you didn't see QPR and Norwich losing 5-0. Both of those teams defended like sticks, especially QPR, it was ridiculous. Their fixture next week should be either a goal-fest or the worst match ever.

    As for Football Manager, that's hilarious, so much for a realistic simulator! Then again this is the same game that makes goalkeepers in lower league utterly useless if the ball doesn't land at their feet, and even then...

    I also joined the Fantasy League that you guys created.

    Same old Liverpool, same old Arsenal. Nothing much to say about them. However I'm surprised at Fulham, Swansea, QPR and West Brom. I predicted Fulham to finish 9th, but after seeing that Clint Dempsey looking to leave, they suddenly became my dark horses for relegation and they were bit of a one man team with him. Yet, they won so comprehensively. I also thought Swansea would struggle as teams were getting used to their style of play, they had lost Joe Allen and might lose Sinclair and also they had a new manager. I also thought QPR would do good with their new signings. How wrong was I.....and i tipped West Brom to get relegated as Steve Clarke is only a coach and not a proper manager. However, West Brom seemed very dangerous and fluent and dominated Liverpool, who i thought would do good with Brendan Rodgers. I know its only one match, but so far, a lot of teams have surprised me.

    Joined the SPPF league. I had Nathan Dyer on my team, but changed to Danny Guthrie at the last minute, as he was less expensive and was going to play two games in a single gameweek. FML. I'm also surprised that despite Swansea winning 5-0, Danny Graham didnt get a single goal or assist. I also left Ba on the bench for some weird reason. Hazard's my captain, and although he's still unproven, he should be in the mix of the Chelsea attack, and should get goals and assists against Wigan and Reading. Whats good is, he'll also get points for clean sheets.

    Default The rejects team

    The thing with QPR is that they are essentially just gathering rejects from the bigger teams. What they've built isn't really a team but more of an assortment of players who feel they might have something to prove but ultimately just aren't good enough.
    Never try and argue with idiots, they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

    You're right, QPR are just rummaging through the bargain bin of unwanted players.

    What a cracker of a start to the season!!! FC Barcelona 5-1 Sociedad. Check the goal Villa scored too. This is perhaps the best I've ever seen Barcelona play to be honest, if we play like this for the rest of the season we could actually win everything again like with Pep in his first season!!! I'm soo excited, especially since Valencia drew with Madrid 1-1!!! Alex Song has signed a 5 year contract with Barca.
