Saturday football
For the first time this season, the Saturday fixture list throws up several half-decent games. Charleyfarley has kindly agreed to offer his predictions.

MAN UTD vs LEICESTER (1230 ko)
Three consecutive defeats and the old siege mentality that Jose has employed with so much efficacy over the years has started to cast its enveloping shadow over Old Trafford. But such a mindset has traditionally been of greater use to an underdog than a favourite, so how will that play out in the home dressing room today? Mourinho will have to engage all his motivational skills and then some to transform his team’s nerves into contained aggression if they’re to see off their opponents. There are no such fears for Leicester, who have already been written off by most as title contenders. But the dangers of underestimating Leicester’s tactics are, or should be, well known by now and Claudio Ranieri will look again to a tight defence and quick breaks as he seeks to prolong his opposite number’s discomfort. Beware the wounded tiger. Home win.

Charleyfarley: Home win

BOURNEMOUTH vs EVERTON
Two of the Premier League’s top managers do battle today, albeit from opposite ends of the table. Ronald Koeman will see this as an opportunity to extend Everton’s rip-roaring start to the season, while Eddie Howe (who must already be sick of hearing about the second season syndrome) is under pressure to start accumulating the points needed to stave off relegation. In theory, this should make for an open, entertaining game. Bournemouth have scored as many goals as Everton have so far conceded, so will depend heavily on a solid defence throughout the 90 minutes. Draw.

Charleyfarley: Away win

LIVERPOOL vs HULL
The red half of Merseyside has been claiming as many plaudits for its style of play this season as its neighbours. But does its unexpected defeat at the hands of Burnley suggest a degree of complacency against lower teams? Hull will certainly hope so, but you’d expect Klopp to have learned that lesson. Routine home win.

Charleyfarley: Home win

MIDDLESBORO vs SPURS
It’s going to be a long season for Boro, even though some may give them the best chance of survival among the promoted teams. Harry Kane’s absence could offer them a glimmer of hope today, but Spurs are an all-round stronger outfit and even home advantage will not be enough today, you fear. I hope Charley’s right, but everything suggests an away win.

Charleyfarley: Draw

STOKE vs WEST BROM
West Brom come into this encouraged by a fucking stupid result last time out, while Stoke somewhat surprisingly prop up the table with just one point from a possible 15. Even bad luck has to end some time and Mark Hughes will desperately hope that that time will be today. He will be boosted by Shaqiri’s likely return, but the Baggies have shown that they’re no pushover. Draw.

Charleyfarley: Home win

SUNDERLAND vs CRYSTAL PALACE
Alan Pardew will take heart from a deserved win at the Riverside a couple of weeks ago and will hope to take another northeast scalp today. Unless Sunderland put points on the board sooner rather than later, David Moyes’ future as boss looks anything but secure. While he comes across as an honest man, the stuff he comes out with at press conferences reeks of defeatism. Sunderland should be good enough to at least match Palace, but they must engage belief. Draw.

Charleyfarley: Home win

SWANSEA vs MAN CITY
City have only recorded one clean sheet so far this season, but Ageuro’s return and the overall firepower at Pep’s disposal renders that insignificant. These teams meet for the second time in 72 hours, but who will make the most use of Wednesday’s lesson? That was rhetorical. Away win.

Charleyfarley: Away win

ARSENAL vs CHELSEA (1730 ko)
The game of the day between teams who come into this separated only by goal difference. Giroud’s possible return for Arsenal will encourage Arsene Wenger, who will be aware that Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet so far this season. There’s little to choose between the two sides, but a cracking encounter is most certainly in the offing. Draw.

Charleyfarley: Home win

Re: Saturday football
I see they are saying Stoke are looking at Steve Bruce to replace Mark Hughes.
Its hardly a beauty contest then.

Just watched MOTD.
Sunderland defending of Benteke at that corner at the end was just beyond belief.
Surely they cant survive again.

Liverpool looking very impressive albeit against 10 man Hull & pleased to see last seasons Chelsea back.

Re: Saturday football
Mark Hughes in MOTD, what a whiny Wanker. Hated him as a player, hate him as a manager!!!
If he wants to get penalty's tell his players to stop diving!!

Re: Saturday football
I was against trying for Defoe, but happy to admit I was wrong. He was still good for a 2 year deal and boy could have we done with him now.

I don't believe signing 34 year old strikers is the way forward, but there are a very small exceptions, Zlatan at Man U being another one.

Marston Hammer 8:03 Sun Sep 25
Re: Saturday football
Said at the start of the summer we should've tried to get Defoe in.

zico 2:59 Sun Sep 25
Re: Saturday football
As much as it pains me you have to give credit to Jermain Defoe to be still such a good player and a top finisher. Think he would do a better job for us than all the strikers we have now. Dons tin hat!!!

Boxing was more interesting tonight.

Linares excellent. Commentary from Froch terrible. Paulie superb.

Apologies. Carry on.

Re: Saturday football
Impressive how Guardiola has got such good results so quickly..
It's all in the coaching...selection...preparation and motivation of the squad...
Bilic should learn from him...

Not been at all impressed with Bilic's rambling pre & post game interviews and newspaper columns this season...

Re: Saturday football
Surprised how well the scouse cunts have started this season.

Umfortunately

stoneman 12:12 Sun Sep 25
Re: Saturday football
It's no coincidence that since holding and wrestling in the box has been outlawed Leicester have started conceding goals from corners.

Huth and Morgan are finished.

Conte the Cunte

Takashi Miike 9:13 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
you only have to remember how they treated ancelotti. didn't he win the double in his one year there? cunts, and they still have that emanalo bloke in the background interfering with player recruitment. a bit like silkman with us

Alex G 8:53 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
Why do Chelsea give their managers multiple year contracts when they join? Mourinho seems to be the only one who can make it past the year mark.

Lily Hammer 8:47 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
Ï hope it's this chelsea that turn up at ours in the cup.

irisiris95 8:45 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
So even Batshit misses a one on one...maybe our 4th/5th strikers aren't that bad after all ???

Takashi Miike 8:33 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
that's why I wrote abramovic, i don't think conte would have touched him with a barge pole. shows what a fucked up job that is

Tomshardware 8:26 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
Chelsea are defending like us.

RBshorty 8:11 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
Don't matter how good all the other teams are doing. City and Pep will have it all wrapped up by the end of March. And hopefully we are a long way from any relegation battle.

Sesar 8:08 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
Luiz has been allright. Cahill, Kante and Ivanovic have been shit

Sven Roeder 8:02 Sat Sep 24
Re: Saturday football
I did see that Luiz was one of Abramovich's 'favourites'
Should have just booked him as a clown for his kids party rather than to play football
The soppy mute mass murderer
