    Sounds like a promising start, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and your Wolves .
    Really delighted to hear that you won against Felix Magath and Fulham. He should have come back to us instead joining Fulham :p Terrible start for him and Fulham so far.:sneaky:

    Not many goals in the Premier League yesterday. Teams seem to be far to scared to lose rather than taking a small risk and possibly coming away with all 3 points. Everton looked good despite throwing away a 2 goal lead, dont quite think they have the depth to have a good Europa league run and challenge the top end of the EPL aswell though. Chelsea looked sharp though, and they still havent got going yet imo.

    Some crackers today, Hull v Stoke, Tottenham v QPR & Sunderland v Man Utd. Then tomorow night is Man City v Liverpool

    I'll go:
    Hull 2-1 Stoke
    Tottenham 2-0 QPR
    Sunderland 1-2 Man Utd
    Man City 2-2 Liverpool

    Setting his team up to play 3-5-2 when his team blatantly have no idea how to play that formation. They left gaps everywhere. Old Arry had a shocker.

    I Did two tours in England back in the 70's and 80's. Back then it was called Division 1. Liverpool was the Perennial powerhouse and Manchester U were a bunch of hooligans. I remember that shops would board their windows when Man U came to town. It's strange seeing all the corporate logos on the uniforms. I feel it lost something in doing that. I made the mistake of coaching soccer for 15 years and not putting my kids in football. Now I only have my daughter to watch games with since my sons are only interested in watching Soccer. Soccer is a fun game to coach and play but it's bloody boring to watch.

    not the brightest start to the season so far for the dons, i feel postponing our game against St mirren last week has not helped us at all, it would have kept us in a bit of rythm

    not a bad result for the black cats yesterday though, Man Utd going ahead was so against the run of play, but good to see we could come back, even if Manure were not playing great themselves

    Very efficient match by City, I was deeply impressed. They are definitely the team to beat this season.
    And I'm delighted by another Chelsea win and the second Diego Costa goal. He could be a huge improvement for Chelsea compared to Torres. Btw - where is Torres ? He wasn't even sitting on the bench ? :cautious:

    The long suffering MCFC fan can only feel pleased at the evolution of the football club. I wanted to wait until after this match to comment on recent developments. Certainly the quality displayed yesterday against last year's second place finisher gives me a sense that we are now established as a world class side and not just one year wonders. When Ferran Soriano was spirited away from Barcelona to take over as Chief Executive, either people didn't take notice or wrote off the move as the owner splashing more cash frivolously. Here is what he has delivered on.

    - We have a well managed side with the core group of players... (Dzeko, Silva, Toure, Aguero, Nasri, Kompany... and even Kolarov)... signed for the next four to five years.

    - We are making wise choices at the transfer periods. Now the reaches for the Matas, Di Marias, Balotellis etc are being made by the others like the Rags and Liverpool instead of us. It was a long road to get to the point to where we are not the ones doing the chasing.

    Contrary to what the supreme doubters... (and anti-Arab racists)... have long bemoaned, the academy system is progressing nicely. But that is being one bettered as we now have Melbourne and New York City to operate as minor league feeder / developers. We signed mentors for the young players such as David Villa and Frank Lampard.

    There is work to do in the Champions League. Even though I like what Chelsea have done to improve themselves, check out these predictions and tell me if you think MCFC is being handled objectively.

    ManCiteh are the benchmark like it or loath it, i have hope but not getting over excited about the season ahead. I think it will be pretty much the same as last year unless injury loss of form come into play. Would have been good if Chelsea could have got one more Killer striker to partner Costa. Wastrel Torres hopefully will get a permanent move away sometime.

    Citeh know Chelsea are their main rivals and can inflict damage on them, however Chelsea as we know slipped up and handed the title over last season. Thats no slant on Citeh they deserved to win in the end. As for this year hope dies last.

    Top geezer who served his country well, even though i cant stand them. :)

    Both teams have good players and managers. City have been together as a group longer, which I feel should be to their advantage. But strange things happen... (but not so strange as to predict the Rags winning the title).
