2012-13 EPL season

219 posts in this topic

it's almost upon us, as the unofficial beginning is Sundays Chelsea-Man City Community Shield match in Birmingham with opening weekend on the 18th-20th

A few things to ponder:

Can Chelsea use their Chaps league win as a springboard to challenge the Manchester stranglehold up top.

Newcastle kept the band together, can they go higher than 5th and get into Champs league in '13.

Can Wigan make a run towards the top half, or were their last 11 games just lightning in a bottle.

I think we will be very good this year with our without Van Persie. We had a phenomenal summer transfer period. Phenomenal.

So far its

Podolski - Giroud - Walcott

Cazorla

Arteta - Song

Gibbs-Vermaelen-Koscielny-Sagna

Definitely more attacking than last year but defense still kind of sucks... I believe Arsenal is not done buying players yet.

I think we need to start the Ox. It is a must at this point. It blows Wilshere is out for the first month or so of the season too.

Torres scores first goal and about 1 min later Ivanovich gets a red card for bad tackle... Good game so far even tho Chelsea 1 man down.

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
