I find it very sad that a team like West Ham, who will probably finish in the top half of the table, cannot give Man City a game at home.

Money has affected football so much, I mean City are really no more than a mid to lower PL club but to use a Wenger expression they have been financially doped to make them worldbeaters.

Not sure what the answer is. Pundits are saying that other teams have to find a way to plug the gap but realistically they've spent £120m on two players this summer, one of whom is a fullback.


Dead right Soc ....... was just thinking along similar lines . No football for a few months , we've bought well so there is a bit anticipation in the air

...and then these clowns with unlimited $$$$$$$$ stroll out and put an ice cold shower on proceedings

Pundits will be wetting their pants over their style , flair etc etc gushing " how many trophies will they win this year " ...... NO -ONE mentions or thinks to address the unfairness of the whole situation .

Blimey, has the football season started already?

That's net spend. The actual amount they spent is a little above other big teams. They are successful because they are well managed.

Strange starting line up. Exremely strong bench. Youngsters starting including Chambers at CH.

If we get overrun at the beginning the teams confidence will take a kicking imo.

I wish he'd started with some of the players on the bench......

1Leno
15Maitland-Niles
21Chambers
5Papastathopoulos
18Monreal
29Guendouzi
34Xhaka
7Mkhitaryan
28Willock
24Nelson
14Aubameyang

Substitutes
8Ceballos
9Lacazette
11Torreira
19Pépé
23David Luiz
26Martínez
35Martinelli Silva

Atknson the ref, enough said, I'm worried.


Strange lineup.

Am I bias, or did Mkhitaryan made at least 2 poorly weighted passes already?

That time of year again... Mustafi and Xhaka still here? Sixth place here we come!!

Why so optimistic? :42laughter:

The more Mustafi plays the lower we may end up on the table.

Monreal no longer has any legs,

Xhaka is the most frustrating player. Our best players have been the youngsters

Chambers has been decent I thought. Mkhitaryan both the standout worst player and closest to providing an assist.

Not much to shout about.

Willock and Nelson probably the pick of an average bunch.

Overall Mkhitaryan was poor in the first half.

Guendozi runs all over for the team. Defensively effective. Forward play weak.

Could have been worse. Pépé on for Mkhi and Luiz for Xhaka to tighten up defence and we're on our way.

Other than those 2 changes I think we have been good.

So far Xhaka and Guendozi have been poor. Not driving forward and tons of sideways passes

Now let's see if the defense can hold a lead.

3 points. Clean sheet. Away win.

That’ll do nicely.

Well, that's a game that won't live long in the memory.

Still 3 points away from home is not to be sniffed at.

The sooner we can get the newbies into the side the better because we need an uplift in quality.

Great result.

The opening game is always tough and in those conditions with a depleted first 11 a win is a great result. Honourable mention for chambers who I thought did ok.

Three points and a clean sheet. AMN, Willock and Aubameyang the standout performers for me. Substitutions were odd. Willock was playing well and Ceballos really struggled. Giving a Brazilian teenager his debut in the rain at Newcastle??? Pépé did ok with one superb feint and turn.
