My wife sent me a meme the other day, something like “And now for the 9 months when 11 men decide the state of my mental health every week”.


Yup.

Haaland will have a better chance at the Ballon D'or without the World Cup this year, but he's gonna have to score like 80 goals to get it when City finishes in 2nd place.

I feel like Champion is flinching very time the guy in the seat next to him opens his mouth. He’s used to getting splashed with Twellman vomit any time he isn’t speaking.

0-0 Everton-Fulham at half because I know you’re waiting for that news. Everton must have huge xg, Maupay has been in front of goal 2x at less than 2 feet out and hit at keeper both times, like you would have to go out of your way not yo score.

Fulham go a goal up at Everton. Early in the season, but I'm already getting 'can't score, won't score' vibes from The Toffees.

Brighton look just fine, admittedly against Luton (who weren't helpless). On the sartorial side, I must say the new PL number font looks huge on the jersey backs (in a good way). Very dramatic. Although you can't read Newcastle's - it looks like a colorblindness test (red on black/white stripes).

So I’m new to following the PL weekly. Is there a guide to which clubs SOSHers are fans of?
There are a few “What club should I root for?” threads if you search back. Some of the context around some of the clubs has changed (says the Newcastle fan…) but they set out who supports who pretty well.

I feel like you'll be able to figure it out very quickly (Spurs fan here).

Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs are the most represented clubs on SoSH by my estimation, but we have informed and committed fans for Man U, Man City, Chelsea, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Everton, West Ham and more.

Hugely impressive game from Newcastle, they pushed and pushed Villa, relentless attack.

It will become fairly obvious …

As for yourself … if you’re looking for a team to support I’d simply watch a bunch of games - they will pick you.

Unless , of course it’s ManU or Chelsea or City in which case you’ll be damned for eternity.

I’m a Luton fan - because they are the Hatters and I love hats. Dumb reason but hey why not - I’ll enjoy their season despite their ass getting whipped weekly!

Kane is on the bench right now for Bayern, who trail RBL 2-0 in the DFL Supercup early in the second half.

Bayern looked like they’ve gotten to the “dreary, no ideas” stage of a Tuchel managerial stint in record time.
