Saturday football
SATURDAY
Unusually, most of the weekend's big-hitting games are on today.

EVERTON vs LIVERPOOL (1230 ko)
The league leaders host the team in fifth – yes, Everton are at home. They’ll struggle to maintain their 100% record, but will have to be taken more seriously than ever if they do manage it. Jurgen Klopp acknowledged during the week that Everton may be title contenders. Today will be a major test for both sides. An Everton victory would demand a 21st century version of Bjørge Lillelien’s immortal words. Nelson Mandela, Daniel Craig, Cilla Black, Pope John Paul II, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Tarbuck, Saadi Gaddafi, Mel C, John Bishop, Caroline Wozniaki, can you hear me? Your boys took a hell of a beating. You can hope. Draw.

CHELSEA vs SOUTHAMPTON (1500)
Although Danny Ings is on fire, Chelsea are stronger and will see this as three points for the taking. But Saints fans will point to their unexpected 2-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture. Is another upset on the cards? Naah. Home win.

MANCHESTER CITY vs ARSENAL (1730)
City’s lacklustre start to the campaign sees them in lowly 14th spot, a full 10 places behind today’s visitors. They may also be without the influential Kevin de Bruyne, while Arsenal’s new signing, Thomas Partey, may be thrown in the deep end for his introduction to English football. Draw.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs MANCHESTER UNITED (2000)
Whatever has become of the Red Devils? They’ve had a fortnight to mull over their painful 1-6 drubbing at the hands of Spurs. Their owners must have spent that time considering replacements for OGS should they lose again today. Pochettino, surely. Draw.


SUNDAY

SHEFFIELD UNITED vs FULHAM (1200)
The bottom two sides, both pointless, in a game you feel is more important to the away side. The Blades display early symptoms of second season syndrome, but are probably better resourced to get out of the bottom three. For Fulham, it’s going to be another tough old season. They might even wish they had not been promoted. Home win.

CRYSTAL PALACE vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (1400)
This is the closest either side has to a local derby and there’s little love lost between their respective fans. Both have shown glimpses of competence and are capable of putting together a performance. Expect a battle, as always, with the sharpest talons coming out on top. Draw.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs WEST HAM UNITED (1630)
Spurs have been cooing annoyingly after their demolition of Man U and will hope to duplicate that today. Particularly as Gareth Bale looks likely to feature. Will his experience of Madrid’s golf courses help him to deliver the performance his manager expects? Will Moyes start Said Benrahma? He took a risk with Coufal last time out and that paid off. Our recent signings may not be of the big name type that some fans have been after, but the first team is looking increasingly formidable. With Bowen, Benrahma, Antonio, Soucek et al plundering forward, supported by the rapidly improving Fornals, we’re looking strong in attack. The defence has also given grounds for optimism. This could be a very good game. Or not. Draw.

LEICESTER CITY vs ASTON VILLA (1915)
Third host second. Still, not perhaps the most appealing fixture of all time for the neutral, but who can forget that Villa demolished Liverpool 7-2 just a fortnight ago? (I did, before looking it up.) Leicester, of course, were also dispatched with ease the same day. That’s easier to remember. You feel, though, that the Foxes will be too strong today. Home win.

'The most ridiculous thing about var is that no one even understands it, that is refs, scottly park, players and commentators. No one knows what is going on'

Read the c&p below which proves my point, no cunt knows what the fucking rules are. Utter fucking farce.


''The video assistant referee in charge of Saturday's Merseyside derby reportedly forgot he could check for a red card when he reviewed Jordan Pickford's horror foul on Virgil van Dijk. And according to a report from the Daily Mail, Coote didn't check for a red-card offence because he thought the offside ruling against Van Dijk nullified what happened afterwards''

The games at Chelsea, Newcastle, Sheffield U & Leicester were all ppv

Be interested to see the take up for WBA v Burnley
I see Newcastle fans have started a campaign to not pay Sky or BT but to make a donation to a local food bank instead

Re: Saturday football
Well done to premier league for not retrospectively banning Pickford for that tackle on VVD.

If anything Everton deserve to be punished not rewarded

Re: Saturday football
Villa are this years surprise package. Should have dispatched them back to the championship when we had a chance. They have money and are quietly building something. Will surprise a few this season

Palace are an Allardyce team, set pieces POMO

Well done Brighton, deserved.

Palace are horrendous to watch, score a goal and sit back. Roy needs replacing, fucking dinosaur.

Iron Duke 5:26 Sun Oct 18
Re: Saturday football
Palace seem to be able to con the referee every week. They get nearly as many penalties as Man Utd. Minimum contact, fall over in the box, win a penalty. We have to have a player murdered to get a penalty, and only after a 5 minute VAR review.

You're welcome, Geoff. Mincey because I read every one of your posts as if said by Kenneth Williams.

Flannel because you're a flannel.

Re: Saturday football
I recall Ian Wright on MOTD a few weeks ago saying Pickford's behaviour was erratic. He is one reckless cunt and will hurt someone else if his tackles go unpunished
