Football Season 2017/18

Thanks MDS,

Brought a big smile about our defence spend.Sad to see Kolorov move on but getting Mendy and Walker should be exciting and Ederson in goal should be tasty -then again I thought that about Bravo this time last season !

Nice business if it pays off.Its a real reflection on how much money is in the game.In a way it's obscene,but the reality is we live in a capitalist world.I suppose when Guidola discussed next season with Sheik Monsour and highlighted what needed to be strengthened it's just another part of his business.He must have spent tens of billions on the airline.Great to have the open cheque book,always made very welcome when he comes to home games.

Good luck to Pompey for next season.Promotion will be a confidence booster for them.

Always loved the Rednapp years at Pompey.Linvoy Primus - David James.....2 lovely Geezer's.Winning the Cup was magic for the town.I also remember a midfielder Mulatari ( sorry if spelling wrong ) who was scoring regularly.

Thanks Tabby Cat. Linvoy is still part of the club. Some sort of unpaid ambassador. Muntari was a good player for us, albeit with a terrible disciplinary record. He's playing in Italy now and you might recall a bit of publicity earlier this year when he walked off the pitch because of racist chanting and the ref booked him for it.

And while we're reminiscing, my memories of City were the stylish days of Bell and Summerbee, plus the canny Francis Lee.  Given the clogging that was allowed back then and the rubbish state of the pitches, the silky skills of those players were really special.  

Anyway, really looking forward to the season and will be fascinated to watch the race for the Premiership again. Great to see so much genuine competition.

Neymar !

The personification of the game being a wash with money.

Awesome player - but £40 million a year salary WTF !

Hopefully that will now enable him to afford to pay for a proper haircut.

But that could spell the end for his bandana when he's in mufti.

Good first day of the season at Fratton Park today. New owner there, capacity crowd (18,000), 2-0 win with the classy-looking new striker, Brett Pitman, getting both.  Team a bit disjointed at times but looked solid at the back.

I'm happy tonight.

Are you coming to Cardiff on Tuesday for the Carabao Cup game? We never turn up for the cup any more so you should see another win. I'd like to wish you well for the season but still feeling a bit cheated by the FA Cup Final we lost to you...

I don't think we have any more interest in that cup than your lot, PB, though Warnock-manged clubs always seem hard to beat. That cup final feels a long time ago given how far we fell in the intervening years. Kanu is still a hero at the club, in part because of that cup-winning goal.

See your lot nicked a good away win at Burton yesterday.

Ian, Phil McNulty of the Beeb has City as Champions. Saints 14th, which will not go down well round here!

Not surprising. The other teams are moving on, and what are Saints doing.........a new manager (again), a "replacement" for Van Dyke and a one midfielder......

Blimey - the Goons v Foxes game must be an absolute belter - 4-3 now.

Yeah. What a cracking first game? Arsenal looking fragile at the back. Don't like being pressured when they play it out. But good going forward. Must say Wenger got the subs right. Foxes will feel hard done by, scoring three goals away from home and getting nothing.  

Well it wasn't pleasant to watch at times last night but as a game of football it had everything. Lets hope Koscielny and Mustafi dont get injured to often because their back up looked a bit shaky, lets hope some new defenders arrive.
Lacazette was great again as was Kolasinac as always going forward we looked good lets hope Sanchez decides to stay.

As a I live in Brighton have a bit of a soft spot for the Seagulls and wish them luck ( I think they are going to need it ) against Man City later on. I read a quote from Johnathan Pearce that said Man City just have spent more on full backs that it cost Brighton & Hove Albion to build their stadium The Amex.

Seems possible that my duck (wearing red bib) to avoid a clattering as Swans' Martin Olsson came over the barrier could provide the highlight in a lacklustre game.

Saints have a new manager but the same problems. Yet I'm heartened. They are at least showing intent and creating chances.
