Title: EPL 2016/17 Discussion and Banter Thread
Post by: Keeper27 on August 15, 2016, 10:28:36 AM
Liverpool fan here.

Great to see us start with a win against a tough side. gives me hope.
Pros: Mane, what a gun, kept attacking and looked dangerous in the 2nd half.
Brazilians - Coutinho and Firmino. Love em, the looked great all game and Coutinho's Free from that far out was AMAZING.

CONS: Moreno isn't a defenders asshole. #MorenoOut.
Hendo, love the bloke but i don't think he should be starting.

nice to see Zlats score on debut, Rooney shouldnt start, aguero is still a fantasy monster.

Great Manchester derby.
Pogba was nowhere to be seen, looked like Fellaini touched the ball more than he did.
I hate UTD but rashford should've started he's a gun and needs the experience if he's to reach his potential.
I think it would've been worse if Aguero played.
Zlatan is typical Zlatan. Awesome.

Loved it.

Liverpool played great and loved the result

Another win for my beloved Reds.
I've been pretty harsh on hendo lately and deservedly so, but he was amazing against chelsea.
He controlled that midfield and his screamer was Gerrard-esque.
Matip was a wall. He was great.

Anyone see negredo goal against Everton? I'm surprised that was allowed.

He didn't score. It was an own goal, that's why it counted

i watched the Man UTD vs. Leicester City game and the Liverpool vs. Hull game. last night.

ManU/Leicester:
United were looking shaky in that first 15-20 mins, then they scored from a set piece and it seemed to have settled them.
it was good to finally see pogba show what he's capable of, but i guess thats due to the gaffer not playing in his natural role the last few games.
Mata deserves a special mention, whenever he plays he just seems to light up everyone around him, and him taking Rooney's spot showed that Rooney might as well stay on that bench.
Mata worked as hard going back as Rooney and definitely played a whole lot better going forward than Rooney has all year.
Zlats looked dangerous as usual, Rashford is something special and should start every game.
Leicester let through 3 goals from the set pieces on the left. very poor marking and unorganized.


Liverpool vs. Hull:
WOW, what can i say, an almost perfect display of football.
not being bias here either, they looked ridiculously good.
it seemed that Hull could not even get the ball out of their defensive half.
MOTM was milner for sure, he dominated that left side and just did whatever he wanted.
Mane, again looking extremely dangerous. coutinho/lallana/firmino looked amazing and on point.
Wijnaldum was also amazing.

5-1 and sitting in 4th. i'm a very happy man.

I'll talk about
Swansea vs Man City
I always rate Swansea vs the better teams in the PL. But Man City are close to unstoppable, Swansea tried to press the mids which is strange since Aguero is so dangerous but for the first half and actually most of the game they did it well. Man City's mids were poor on defence the possession style of football seemed to worry them and made City look worried. As expected after the second goal Swansea got desperate and conceded another one

Also watched Arsenal vs Chelsea
Arsenal are actually a threat as the midfield can do it all, their set up behind the ball dominated the run of Chelsea, was a great display of 2 way running from Arsenal they come to play and put the game away early. Worry for Chelsea they never changed up style of game and tried the same thing time after time and Arsenal had them covered the whole game

Not sure if you care about the other matches, but West Ham's defence is awful and has been for about 5 weeks. Blew some early shots, with the classy ball movement from Southampton just cut right through the D. Happy for my Saints to get a win. I was very nervous early on

Everton? Does 7th get Europa? Wouldn't it depend on who makes the FA Cup final? If Milwall get to it then they'd get Europa over 7th place in the League right?

He's still got 2 years left on his deal, unless things get really bad I don't think he'll leave any time soon. Although he did say he wants to play Champions League.

Would love to see him back at Chelsea as Batshuyai hasn't really worked out, sad really, was really excited about him.
