  1. Being optimistic, Man City 6-0 Leicester. Realistically I think we might see something similar to Liverpool away last year. A decent performance but ultimately not good enough resulting in 0 points. Man City 2-1 Leicester.
  2. It's scheduled for Wednesday 23rd September 18:00 KO. Although it looks like this has not been 100% confirmed. Would make sense if it is that date.
  3. There is a massive 2 day gap, not one. Not that it changes the intent of lineup for this match. Play the benchwarmers/reserves/youth players so everyone has been involved early on.
  4. In answer to 2, I think all qualifiers are one-legged, so it would be three games for Spurs. Fully get your point though! Bulgaria, and I think Romania potentially in the 3rd Qualifying round for them too. In answer to 3, it's completely up in the air bar the top few teams. There are so many possibilities of teams that could still qualify (drop down from CL qualifiers, get through EL qualifiers etc.). The more qualifying rounds that are completed, the more of an idea of pots we will get. By the time we get to final playoff round, pots should be fairly stable.
  5. It really is important that the squad shake off the awful second half of last season and get close to the start of last season. Something in between would be very acceptable. However, we must be wary that other teams are doing their homework and recruiting and improving. For me, the Top 4 this year is a closed shop. Then it's for Arsenal, Tottenham, Wolves, us, Everton, maybe Southampton (surprise result for me yesterday), Newcastle at a push to scrap for 5th and 6th. Not sure if anyone else could challenge and spring another surprise like Sheff Utd last year. Beyond the Top 4 it could be a very interesting season.
  6. I think a lot of people are just being realistic. Of course you get those few who go OTT. Last season we were fantastic for 5 months but then the wheels well and truly came off and post restart, we have shown very little to be hopeful. We have injuries/suspensions and so far done very little to bolster the squad, in fact nothing. It just shows how far we have come that with a season in mid table mediocrity looming, most people are unhappy. We all want us to regularly challenge for Europe now which has always been a club ambition. I just feel very flat about this season but let's see. The start is going to be tough for us with the injuries/suspensions, if we get a few results then maybe we can push for Top 7 but we won't see anything like last season, or 2016 for that matter! We all know that was a one off.
  7. We'll dominate possession first 15 minutes but lack any quality. Then West Brom get on top and score 1-0. Second half, come out firing for 20 minutes, again lack of quality, miss one sitter. Then game dies off. West Brom score 2-0 in last 10 mins.
  8. If anything, Wolves were worse after COVID. They had already got to the Last 16 of EL and were doing OK in the PL before.
  9. He was on loan at Bayern for a year or maybe even two. I watched a fair few games and there were glimpses of quality but overall, bit of a flop. Never really broke into the Starting XI. Similar story to Coutinho this year. Both players had an option to buy at the end of the loan, neither was activated. Appreciate Bayern, Real/Barca and Everton are different calibers but still. Can't see him pulling up any trees at Everton.
  10. I was waiting for the signing of Supafat and Supaslow to bolster our ranks.
  11. I think it made sense when the season restarted as teams were playing every 3 or 4 days for a 1 to 2 month period. However, now that the season is back to normal length (albeit a slight shortening), I don't see why 5 subs are needed. The likes of Burnley are playing one game a week with the odd midweek games scheduled.
  12. RB Leipzig have been given the green light from local authorities to allow fans in for their first game of the season against Mainz. 8,500 have been allowed.
  13. Yes, everyone until end of October. Then it has to be a squeaky clean concept to be proposed to the leaders to show it can be safe, otherwise it is at least end of the year. So realistically, most clubs will be without fans until 2021. Currently up to 300 fans are allowed at smaller grounds. And I think this varies by state too.
  14. This is who I thought of as Wesley Fofana
  15. Wasn't there examples in France and Scotland where games were cancelled once a certain amount of positive tests were returned for one club, like 6 or 7? To an extent, tough luck. But at some point there has to be a postponement.
  16. Just for reference/comparison. Germany have banned mass events of all sorts until 31 December, which includes sporting events. However, they have asked the associations to come up with plans before the end of October which would be reviewed. So earliest, fans in November. Considering Germany have dealt with the virus much better, either the UK are being a bit optimistic with October, or it's another gung ho move from BJ and the gang.
  17. Not sure on this. Say 8,000 tickets are available to STH's each game. 20,000 STH's "renew" but only 16,000 are interested in actually going. Round 1, 8,000 get tickets. Round 2, another 8,000 get tickets. Round 3, this would be a new cycle. Or what if only 6,000 apply. Does it then open to everyone who went in Round 1 again?
  18. Yes, all 3 keeper kits are released already.
  19. I am pretty sure that the planning starts way before now. However, they will now be in a position to finalise them.
  20. The guidelines agreed between the German FA and the clubs are that: - No away fans in 2020 - No standing/terraces until 31/10/2020 - No alcohol until 31/10/2020 - Track and trace However, it still needs to be approved by the government. Also, those dates could change at any time and be extended, I guess those are minimum based on current circumstances.
  21. Leverkusen is good because it is near Dusseldorf/Cologne. Oktoberfest is cancelled this year anyway.
  22. Makes sense as Trevor has now retired.
  23. So UEFA are making rules on the spot? I am sure they always had the stance that max 7 teams from one country. The rules are not very straightforward.
  24. Only a maximum of 7 teams allowed in Europe. In this case it would be 5 in CL and 2 in EL. Spurs would miss out. Unless something changed this season.
