Did you mean 2016-17?

 

Anyway, Arsenal to look like they can't lose it and then in February/March time have a run of 8 games without a win and end up finishing 3rd.

City to win, United and Chelsea to be 2nd/3rd in some order. 4th between Arsenal and Tottenham and some other surprise team. Leicester in upper mid table.

Every year.

Yep.

 

 

Zlatan will Zlatan the hell out of the Zlatan and then he wont' Zlatan again.

 

In other words he'll do an RvP - a phenomenal season and then fall off the face of the Earth.

 

Mhiktarantkiktaran I don't know, but I think players from the Bundesliga tend to slot into the Premier League much faster than French, Italian or Spanish league players.

Mkhitaryan was world-class at Dortmund, unquestionably. I think he'll do fine.


..

Either that or he'll pull a Kagawa and lose his form entirely.

Wow Fabregas' tackle on Klavan. What a cunt. Extremely lucky it wasn't a bit higher or his career would have ended there and then.

Mkhitaryan and Zlatan will be great. I actually liked Kagawa, they should have kept him. I agree with the comment about players from the Bundesliga fitting in better. It's a more physical, fast-paced league than Spain or Italy. I'm also surprised English clubs don't sign more players from the American league. The MLS is also similar to the English game in that it is fast-paced and physical. The American players are real athletes and can handle a pressing game.

On the plus side Chelsea's cuntiness rating could be aiming for an all-time low....potentially no Costa and John Terry?!

Do you ever go to the games, Haggis?  You must be pretty excited about the Old Firm games in the league again?

So Dundalk got Legia Warsaw in the last qualifier. 3 very tough qualifiers for the Champions League they've had, but this is probably the worst possible draw they could have got. We also could have got Celtic, which in all likelihood would have given us a better chance. I'm well aware that the League of Ireland is well down the ranks in terms of prestigiousness, but surely to God as league winners, having to play 3 knockout qualifiers (2 legs each) is taking the piss?

 

I know this has always been the case, but Dundalk are my local team and they have won the league 11 times now (including the last 2 in a row) but I really think they're getting a raw deal here, when some some countries have the potential to have 5 teams in the Champions League, with 3 of those automatic.
