Barclays Premier League- 2019/20 Season Thread

Recommended Posts

Premier League season discussions here...

Chelsea pretty lucky to get a point today against Leicester.  This will be a interesting year for Chelsea...just hoping for growth from the young players.  Top 4 appears unlikely.  Willian comes on and looked horrible.  His laziness is killing me.  We need Hudson-Odoi back badly.  Willian has these lazy atrocious games way to often.  He was appallingly bad today.

The season just started so a lot of time to adjust.  Arsenal barely squick thru these 2 games.  Arsenal is playing against Liverpool this week... could be ugly.

Honestly, drawing level with ManC at their house surprised the hell outta me. We don't have the best record in their house, so a draw is about as good as I could expect lately. All I gotta say is, thank goodness for VAR!

 

(I'll hate it and curse it later, I'm sure, but for now, it's alright by me)

Arsenal and Tott are better than Chelsea.  Chelsea has talent but shaky at the back and no real lead striker = mediocrity

Frankly, it all depends on how healthy the teams will stay.  United is very thin all over the place.  Spurs D is few injuries away from being crap,  Arsenal have a ton of midfielders but only few quality ones and their D is garbage.  The healthiest teams will do good this season.

Chelsea win and Man U and Arsenal lose.  Happy times.  Liverpool looking really stout so not a terrible loss.

Tammy Abraham needs to stay at lead striker...he isn’t great with control but finds the net.

Liverpool took advantage of Arsenal terrible fullbacks.  Liverpool attacked nonstop on the wings and their fullbacks literally played wingers.  It will be a different story come January with Bellerin and Tierney slated to come back in 2-4 weeks.

Why Liverpool and City are so successful is because they got great CBs which allowing their FBs go into all out attack.  Both Liverpool and City FBs are great attackers.  That in turn splits open opposite team midfield due to overload.

Arsenal is in rebuilding phase to try to copycat that but it won’t take full effect until next year when Saliba and another CB will join the team.

Oh yea baby!  Talking about defensive reenforcement!

  Bellerin and Tierney at FB will be amazing to watch.  So much speed and technical ability.

Not so sure about my guys, with the loss to Newcastle last week. Guess we'll start to see tomorrow if they really have what it takes to contend this year, or if there's just too much contentious internal strife from players wanting out that's affecting our locker room.

Arsenal have a good attack but their D is bad...  Holding, Bellerin and Tierney are still out for 2-3 more weeks.  Arsenal will likely counter a lot tomorrow.

Yep, that’s true. Arsenal one season away from competing.  Still need a LW, CM and CB. Arsenal D will be pretty good next season when Saliba comes in and another top CB signed.  Arsenal will finish rebuilding almost same time Liverpool players start going past prime.

    • A team might have a lot more injuries than the opposing team. Keeps a fair balance.
    • Its purpose is to ensure a level playing field. Say you have everyone active but Team A has five players injured while Team B only has one. Team A now has a perceived advantage because they technically have a deeper roster. Forcing both teams to sit 8 players is meant to nullify that possibility.
    • It all comes down to Rivera.   Are the Panthers good enough to go on the road and win a game against a so-so team that sucked last year and has a rookie QB in his third ever game?  Yes. Will there be any sign that this coaching staff understands how to do that? That is the question. Backs against the wall, staring down 0-3 and the increasing likelihood that if this thing goes south in a hurry heads will roll... I’d like to think we’ll come out 1-2, but... I still think the Panthers will go into AZ underprepared.  They will underperform.  Maybe it will be close at some point, but I just see the little mistakes adding up to some truly unfortunate momentum changes in this game. On the road, every mistake is magnified. AZ has nothing to lose and will be relaxed and focused.  Panthers will start out looking like they could win this thing, then there will be lapses in focus and suddenly AZ has the ball in good field position. Plus...and I mean this for real...the best narrative for the NFL is the rise of Murray and the decline of the Panthers.  I find that games like this often favor which ever story is the best narrative for the corporate interest.  What helps the NFL more: Kyle Allen leads a mediocre Panthers over and even more mediocre Cardinals, OR Murray balls out and puts up a highlight reel as the lowly Panthers trip over their own stupid feet? The second one. Probably another grinding loss. Panthers 20 Cardinals 27
