Aaronson with the game winner against Chelsea today!

No start again for Pulisic, time for him to go elsewhere.

Newcastle holds on for the draw against City. De Bruyne with a surgical pass to set up the equalizer.

Tuchel has to be on a short leash now. Blues gave up a 2-0 lead against the Spurs and now shut out by Leeds. Too freaking funny.

He gave up a 1 goal lead twice to Spurs, technically.  He's a douche so I can't feel bad for him.

Steve, do you think Arsenal has a legit shot this year, or just a soft schedule to open?

 

This week Aresnal (my son's team) plays Fulham (my team) but he's got a tournament.  We're going to record and do our best to not read any results.

Arsenal has two things going for them: Ramsdale and Turner. There are two ways to win the EPL. Terrific goalkeeping. Or just having a crap load of offense. Of course the best teams have both. The problem I see with Arsenal is in their attack. They are good for sure. But I don't think they have the quality and depth to hang with Liverpool and Man C. I think my preseason prediction of 4 looks about right. But they could move past Chelsea if Tuchel doesn't pull his head out of his ass.

 

But teams best not sleep on the Gunners. They are a very solid club right now.

Man U moves AHEAD of Liverpool in the table after defeating them 2-1. What a crazy EPL season so far.

The announcers and broadcast team certainly shared your opinion.  A week 3 victory against Liverpool was apparently the greatest win in the history of United and possibly the sport.

 

Meanwhile it's going to be a long season for Liverpool if they continue to underwhelm in the first half of games.

BTW great to see Mitrovic getting off to a great start at Fulham.  He abused the defender on the game winning header the other day.  Lotta pressure on him to deliver at the top level after dominating the Championship last year.  He is a load man.

Why James Milner continues to start is completely beyond me. Place him on any other premier league team and is he getting significant minutes? I understand injuries are playing a role but this is crazy

We all love Milner, but yeah he should not be starting in a game against MU.  I thought I heard them say Fabinho wasn't 100%?  Regardless, they should have addressed the constantly injured midfield.

Our depth isn't bad when Ox, Thiago and Jones are healthy. Even without them Keita should be in over the old man turnover machine.

Unfortunately Ox and Thiago are injured more often than not.  Was Keita injured too?

Is Pulisic getting out of Chelsea or what?  Their clown fans are giving him crap because he posted a picture of himself with Adams and Aaronson after the game.   Give me a break, how is that different from any other player, who chats it up or talks to their opponents after the game.

Correct. And as I commented on the Chelsea FB rant page - Perhaps you idiots should be a bit more concerned with the rest of your players. You know the ones on the field that dug you into a 2-0 hole before Pulisic even got in the game. Effing idiots.

Liverpool exorcised some demons today. Poor Bournemouth, wrong place, wrong time. Hopefully Nuñez learned his lesson.
