Good Work 45, was thinking the exact same thing the EPL needs a thread!

I would assume that your a Spurs fan? Suprised by your start but injuries to your backs didnt help, youll have a strong year i think.

Being a Liverpool fan ive been encouraged by the start thus far our weakness in the past.

By all reports we were robbed by a shockin penalty decision against chelski, will have to watch the highlights tonight.

Man City are looking good, and no matter what Sven did with England, hes a proven club manager with some cash.

Chelsea will rebound, they were light on for defenders last season which cost them dearly. Though they will lose Drogba and Essien etc to the africans cup so that may hurt them.

But overall itll be closer than last season (with any luck)...

What do you think?

Yes - thank god Spurs got up... Two losses at home didn't get the confidence soaring...

Injuries in the backhalf remind me horribly of the MFC. When we get them all back we should be looking fairly decent

How about Rooney breaking his foot in the first game like Brock McLean did. Then Ronaldo sent off and missing for three games. Saha and Solskjaer already injured. No firepower whatsoever, just like the Dees without Neitz, Robbo, etc.

2007 has not been a good year for my teams!

I like the Spurs, they've got a good squad and they really should push for 4th this year.

torres is a nutter, i reckon he'll have a big year for the reds.

unless chelsea pull that 'we only win in the last 3 minute' rubbish they did all last year, i can't see them getting close to man u. however i do think teams like arsenal, liverpool and even tottenham, along with possibly man city, coupled with man u's injury woes, it should be a cracker of a season

Dude, at full strength Chelsea > Man U.

Chelsea haven't even got their full side out there and they're still winning with ease.

Come on you Spurs! A great win the other night to calm our anxietys about the poor start to the year. We still have so so many injuries, but hopefully can steady from here.

Are all you Spurs fans on here members of Ozspurs, the Australian Spurs Supporters group? www.ozspurs.com

I think Man Utd have a better team than Chelsea, emphasis on the word team, as Chelsea may have better players they're all just money-chasing individuals happy to take the dodgy oil-barons money till it runs out..then they'll all jump ship (Arjen Robben this morning looks like he's on his way to Real Madrid)..

Having said that United have made it hard for themselves if they wanna win this years title.

Chelsea this year - 2 wins and a draw

Scum U - 2 draws and a loss

And before you say Man U have injuries so do Chelsea.

doesn't sound like you've watched the chelsea matches though, for the large part they've played arrogant rubbish football, and found themselves behind to birmingham and reading, plus a draw with liverpool that even the ref has apologized for.

chelsea could very easily have 2 draws and a loss also. if you're saying chelsea are better because of three games, you're head is in the clouds.

far out did we need that win before our big test against man u, will be interesting to watch.

It doesn't matter how Chelsea won, they still have the wins on the board.

On paper and at their best Chelsea are the better team.

They will win the Premiership, with the Hammers coming a close 2nd ;) .

i don't see how on paper chelsea are a better team, especially with robben going now. i reckon liverpool will be an interesting team to watch, they don't seem to be getting a lot of recognition, but i reckon they could be right up there

Why oh why are Spurs continually shooting themselves in the foot when in likely match-winning situations? That 3-3 result was a disaster, you could've heard a pin drop amongst all the supporters in the pub when the equaliser went in.

The big plus though is Gareth Bale, this kid can seriously play!

Oh, and Chelsea conceding two against of all teams Villa has to be the season highlight so far!

massive night tonight in the context of spurs' credentials. surely we have to win if we are to consider ourselves top 4 material, we cannot continue to lose against the 'big four' time and again, especially at the lane.

come on you spurs!

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
