    Figured since I like Brighton and they aren't popular enough to deserve their own thread, I'd just start a general EPL thread.

    Brighton with a massive 3-0 away win at Watford yesterday.

    Newcastle fan boycott in week one not a promising sign for Stout's favorite team.

    Man City and Liverpool still looking like Man City and Liverpool. And Pulisic is about to make his Chelsea debut as I type this up.

    Arsenal won game 1, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting my interest up in this season.

    What do you mean? Of COURSE BHA deserve their own thread! That was a massive win for you lot, with many tipping you for relegation. Man, Watford and West Ham spending all that money and still shite lol

    As for Newcastle...sigh. Steve Bruce already crapping the bed and proving how, despite improving the squad, he'll probably take us down. We had NO reserve central midfielders and brought in a left wing back/left back for Shelvey because...get this...we carried FOUR defenders. The excuse? Lascelles was a little ill and Dummett had a slight knock. Right, well, that would account for TWO defenders. Hey, Brucey...YOU CAN'T MAKE FOUR EFFING SUBS SO WHY CARRY FOUR DEFENDERS ON THE BENCH! Ouch.

    I second your own thread.

    West Ham always get thrashed at home by City. That was to be expected.

    Wolves are scrappy buggers and a lot of fun to watch.

    I haven't seen them either. In fact, I haven't seen Liverpool either so I don't know how good they are yet.

    I saw Liverpool vs. Norwich (opening PL match). Norwich actually went after them playing out of the back and refused to play long or direct like some teams do when they fall behind or are overmatched. it was amazing to see their courage and in spite of the score they had some chances and just failed to take them. Liverpool easily scored with their opportunities.

    maybe so, who knows. If Newcastle can keep it close, in that stadium anything is possible. spurs have not been convincing, but this goes back to last season. they just can't keep the same grouping of players on the pitch together. and Eriksen looks like a guy who is plotting his future...basically avoids physical confrontation on the pitch in key moments. Then you have guys like Kane and Deli Ali who get hurt chasing balls that are out of play. Their best player (VAR) should be available sunday. haha only joking Son is their best player and he should be fit to make an appearance.

    No, trust me, the Mags are an absolute mess right now, and Bruce is all over the damn place. He doesn't seem to have a clue as to what he's doing, and our big money CF signing is a big puss--he really chocked at Norwich, and played soft and weak and whined and lashed out. Not a good sign.

    I mean, were this last year under Rafa, I wouldn't be confident of a result, but at least the GD wouldn't get messed up. Right now, under Bruce, with the team having no idea what their assignments are and not even trying on the field? I'm afraid of 5-0 or 6-0.
