Chelsea and Man Utd off to a good start...three wins from three games for nine points each.

Good to see Arsenal finally winning a match.

Five matches played....

1) Man City are on a maximum 15 points.

2) Everton - 13 points. A bit of a surprise there....

3) Tottenham - 11 points. Ninesy in seventh heaven!
big grin
4) Arsenal - 10 points. Slow start, fast finish.
cool
5) Chelsea - 10 points. Not living up to the hype?

6) Liverpool - 10 points. Will Klopp come good this year?

7) Man Utd - 9 points. Is the Mourinho magic wearing off?

I just had a Stoke City supporter come up to me and ask me if things will get better. I, being a Villa supporter, could only shake my head.

The refusal to dump Rooney is mindboggling....pogba needs to be pushed into a more attacking position and carrick reintroduced to the squad.

What hype?

Chelsea did not come into this season with any hype.

How can team not even in Europe come in with hype?

I was thinking the same thing about Pogba. With his skill set he should be the midfield general and very much a part of every attack. Being wasted playing so deep.

Pogba was a waste of money. Alex Ferguson realised it and sold him cheaply.

He is no better than the Balotteli guy that Liverpool wasted millions on.

Only if you don't follow English football.

The English view Rooney as better than Pele. To drop him is sacrilegious for them.

They bestow GOD status to their players....from Stanley Matthews..to Bobby Moore....to Bobby Charlton...to Paul Gascoigne (he was actually really good)....to Alan Shearer...to Rooney.

Next on their cult list is "Our 'Arry" Kane...and Jamie Vardy....LOL! lol lol

all bar Gazza...overhyped.

They were all good...but not great footballers.

Charlton and Moore were great players. Moore is one of the greatest ever defenders to boot.

Moore is regarded as one of the best defenders ever, by not just English fans, so just cease and sekkle.

I don't like England nor do I pay ANY attention to their hype. I also do not discount some of the greats THEY produced!

Apart from that World Cup at home...what has Bobby Moore won?
Serious


Did he ever win the English title?

European Cup?

FA Cup even?

How is he the one of the greatest defenders when England won one tournament of note?

Maybe he had A good tournament and that mushroomed into him being the one of the greats.

Again...HYPE

Are you saying that a player cannot be considered great if his team never won a major title?

Granted i dont know these players you are discussing however in the NBA there are great players who never won anything.

After that shock defeat to Spurs, Man City's lead has been cut to just one...Man City on 18, Spurs on 17.

Arsenal and Liverpool have 16 each, followed by Everton on 14, and Man Utd and Chelsea on 13 each.
