I must say, the first 2 goals of the new season were both quality. Also, does anyone know what happened to Lingard?

Januzaj came on for him
I know that, but why did he come off?

Just a tactical change

I heard Moyes is getting the job; he could win the odd game! :P
#VanGaalOut #PardewIn #RooneyOut #SanogoIn

On a more serious note though, it's ridiculous, what with all the hype he was getting. The media actually needs to see how a manager does in a few competitive games first. Not one, a few. Van Gaal isn't a crap manager for losing this game. He needs a little more time. No doubt that everyone will be prepared to give him that time, contrary to what they did with Moyes. After one loss everyone pissed themselves.

On a side note, Ashley Williams was absolutely outstanding today. Best player on the pitch.
For hell's sake, Everton! Why do we always do this?

Chelsea's 3-1 win against new-boys Burnley put them on top of the standings to close the opening round of the Barclays Premier League 2014/2015. There were plenty of talking points and here are some of the main ones:

  • Louis van Gaal's much-anticipated debut ended in disappointment as Manchester United suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Swansea City. What lost them the game?
  • There were many controversial decisions regarding fouls/potential fouls in and around the penalty box. What was the biggest controversy and why?
  • Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City perhaps put on the three most impressive performances and book-makers have made them the three favourites for the title. Who's performance impressed you the most? Who looks the best bet for the title?

  • So, those are just three talking points of many which emerged from a very exciting opening round to the Premier League! What are your thoughts of the first round of games?
    Stewart Downing!!!! :O
    Costa getting booked against Burnley for a dive, when it was a penalty
    Predictions for Everton vs Arsenal? I reckon Arsenal will win 2-1.
    I'm gonna say a 2-2 draw. Btw totally off-topic, but is chat just totally gone for any of you guys as well?

    It's gone for me too, I'll try to find out a reason why.

    btw....Arsenal playing in yellow and blue over red and white against a team which wears blue.....logic?
