Re: English Football 2015/16

DDG thing sucks but you could see it coming.

Awful window (so far) for United. Gotta hope Depay is settled from the start and just tears up the league

Less than 22 hours to go. Can't wait, even if my cautious optimism for United is fading fast into a deep and dark pessimism. No one's posted any predictions itt? Or are we sending predictions to LO or Chris for $$$?

I'm hoping for a "shiny new toy" effect in Madrid...fail to see who that might be.

I have too many other things to run so I gave up on the finishing predictions thing. I'd still participate if anyone else fancied gathering the info.

Everton managed to lock Mirallas and McCarthy down to new deals.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Thought some of you would have had Palace higher. Good 2nd half of the season and the signings of Bamford, Sako, Kebab.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Jedinak-Cabaye central midfield is great.

One of the best in the league (he states categorically without looking through every midfield at this very moment) unless the PSG bench has aged the kebab something bad.

Also heard a lot of people with usually solid opinions being crazy about Bolasie. Maybe he can score more goals too.

Rest of the team more unclear to me and who will indeed step up and score goals is always very important.

And yeah^^ there will be many teams middle-bottom very close.

Surprised you're so high on Cabaye, Bjorn. I watched a lot of his golden period with Newcastle and a lot of it was just running like Jesus with Hollywood balls and shots, he's poor defensively too.

Pardew ruined him! I was a big fan of Cabaye at Lille and thought he could have been even better for Newcastle with some tweaks but was still at a high level and thinking that he was bad (?) definitely the more surprising opinion. He was universially praised most of the time, became France starter and PSG grabbing him suggests some quality also.

For Palace though, Pardew notwithstanding and Jedinak being there, playing somewhat similar to what he did at Newcastle should be just great I think.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Looks like the model has decided on which team to overrate this season. Lack of originality is disappointing I have to say.
