Okay, so we're second in the league, baby.
With City surging 2+ ahead of you on GD already, I'm calling it - the league's gone :D

Replacing a fit, energised Christian Eriksen is going to be a very difficult thing to do. Not that I didn't know that already, but that last hour really showed the impact he has on my team.

Yeah, I was always surprised the team didn't seem to value him more/work harder to keep him. I'd take him in my side, though we're lousy with midfielders.

We could do with some solid defenders on the bench . . . oh, yeah, and a good back-up to the back-up keeper!

Oh, so, uh . . . we're third in the league, baby! I might want to swap my ManU and Chelski predictions.

We're gonna win it!

It would be typical of the 'pool to overlook/underestimate/etc. a team like BHA . . . but I'm not toooo worried . . .

We're back (at least temporarily) at the top of the league!

Having thought about, Arsenal have the worst hair in the PL. Between the '80s porn frizzes of Luiz and Gendouzi (sp? who cares?), the sleazy mechanic 'do of Ceballos, and whatever conehead thing Aubameyang has going on, that is one dodgy of collection of styles.

And their coach is some kind of Iberian Dracula.  The whole club is evil, I tell ya! Evil!

Any thoughts on Legia Warsaw drawing with Rangers in the Europa League?

YNWA! 3-1 over the Arse today. Soft goal to ruin a clean sheet, but pretty dominant over all, Plus, ManU lost!

Well, I hate Legia, so I'm glad they lost. Thanks for the question, Nova.  :cheers:

France really laid an egg yesterday, playing the Andorra national anthem, while going up against Albania.  :facepalm:

These two are going to play again in Albania in November. If I were the host, I'd play the Algerian anthem for the French.  :P

Poland had a tough time this weekend, losing to Slovenia and getting a draw against Austria. The team is still at the top of the group, but quality of play leaves much to be desired.  :unsure:

International football can be a sorry watch at times. England are being uncharacteristically competent but free of thrills (until tournament time, when our anxieties should return). Netherlands are taking care of business though.

I agree. England has no problems with lesser teams, where you can expect at least a three goal win every time. Troubles start when they have to go up against the big boys like Germany or Spain. As far as group A goes, the fact that a complete underdog, Kosovo, is challenging for second place, tells you how easy of a task awaits England.

Are they really going to fine the French 10.000 EURO for the anthem mishap? I think I have that much under the mattress. :codger:

UEFA are very clear about their fining policies. 10,000 for mishaps, 20,000 for hate crimes/racist abuse, 50000 for mass casualties and 800 billion for displaying an unauthorized sponsors` logo.
