Yeah, the bet as stated is a horrible one for whoever doesn't pick Lukaku.

Re: English Football 2015/16

If Jose fails to get out of a relatively easy CL group then lots of the shine come off.

If Jose loses to his City next season by 8 points, like wise.

Giroud 16/1 to be top scorer, Lukaku 20/1. I kinda like my side because i'm a little bit high on everton for this season (they call it the LostOstrich syndrome i believe) with no Europe and no competition at the striker spot but I don't think its horrible to have giroud

if pellegrini blows a 9 pt 3 games out of hand lead (odds on to win the title with bookies) by losing to villa sunderland and palace in the space of a month,

if pellegrini crashes out of the CL in humiliating circumstances via excessive bus parking vs 10 men,

if pellegrini loses at home to bradford in the fa cup,

Forgot Giroud to be honest but could still see Lukaku bagging more in the league. Giroud is streakier I think and also more likely to find himself out of the starting XI from time to time.

Sturridge would be a good shout to threaten if he could even be fit for 75% of league games. Big if.

Didn't say I disliked the bet I just meant the wording vs what you wanted greatly changes how it looks. Went from probably being close to I think you have a nice edge.

I too am pretty high on everton and lukaku specifically.

Add in a fortunately time vulcano and +3 semifinal goals on refereeing mistakes and you have the bit of variance you need too.

These guys don't have any pressure safe for the CL, where Mourinho has failed with Chelsea (I realize it's a high variance tournament)

So I'm in. Unfortunately you won't find any terrorist skills in your vetting of me. All I can offer the cult is barbed derision of Mourinho's character. I am quite creative with four letter words and don't mind stooping to his level. Every little helps, right?
FSW could surely use a chef on his side of the cult

I believe it will 'update' itself in future without you being asked - and on the surface at least you will not be able to stop it from doing these updates.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Rafa is good value. I could easily be a cult member as long as these cults don't have requirements for exclusivity, cos then I'll have to have a good, long think.

Giroud is 25/1 Lukaku is 40/1 - That said providing we dont offer up similar performances to last season your side isnt so bad with Lukaku on penalty duties these days

Providing he's fit he's basically guaranteed at least four goals from the two games against us.

Penalties is a great point and honestly don't think fully factored in by der markt.

Re: English Football 2015/16

chef yr application is denied

we cant have a member going around talking about how jose is a great manager. whether u think hes a **** or not is irrelevant; everyone already knows he's a ****. what we need is people who recognise the fact that tim sherwood would've had approximately the same level of success if he'd also spent a billion quid in the last 10 years, plus his teams would've had the added bonus of being watchable.

come back if you reconsider your errant & misguided views.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Willing to fade the Everton hype train. Come at me with bets. We can start with their point total. Would have to go back and look but think it was either 54.5 or 57.5. I want the under Obv

Also looking to fade Diego costa this year. What's his o/u on league goals?

I'm on phone so no need to post the lol Google it links

Re: English Football 2015/16

I don't know what you're talking about BAIDS. SherGOAT <- the clue is in the name. Give him all the and he'll perform at a similar level to Mourinho. But I'll substitute Harry Redknapp in there and understand what you're getting at.

I'll keep my 3 and join the FSW cult. Sounds like they want me.
