Re: English Football 2015/16

Transfer window isn't closed yet, City will probably spend another 50m+ before it's over. That being said, I'm on the Arse-train. Chelsea are still favs for me, but I think Arsenal will be their closest competitors.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Last season we did a "predict the finishing order of the league" thing, possibly for money. Who ran it, and are they doing it again?

Re: English Football 2015/16

When people are saying arse squad slightly better it likely isn't just referencing the here and now, but also going forward. Arsenal are in a really great place in terms of squad balance with depth and youth. City on the other hand will have a ****load of turn over and will need to almost fully rebuild their squad within the next year or two in a similar fashion to how united is doing.

Re: English Football 2015/16

I def agree that Arsenal are legit contenders this year. I just think it would behove the gooner fans itt to play it down and contain their excitement! As an everton fan, I've been brought up on the concept that a pessimist gets no bad surprises. Without that principle I'd have either topped myself or started supporting Chelsea a decade ago.

I'd do $20. Don't want to do one of the big ones but would do $20 for fun. I know I'll lose interest in favor of DFS, but for $20 it's worth the fun

That's a good point, this year though they are still up there IMO.
Regarding the transfer window, it is still very early. Only ones pretty much done with their shopping is Liverpool (unless they go for a shocking Reus or other big time player)

Yeh, it wasn't for money. I'd be in for some gamble on it too.

Also any interest in PEEHS for the up coming season? Will be a money and free game again.

We're talking about this season though, not future seasons.

This is presumably why you had Everton > Man U for EPL points total last year?

The gooners here seem to think that 5.25 is free money.
