    Yup. I think losing him pretty much guaranteed they wouldn't compete for the title this year.

    Also, WTF is up with West Ham?

    Watching Arsenal beat Chelski 3-0 is always a fun time.

    Yupper. Now, go beat MCI and we can say/sing "FOREVER" again.

    Bring in Reus, Lewandowski and Aubameyang, play the 4-3-3 and let the rest of the league admire our potent offence.

    Oh yes, could use a true defensive midfield specialist and perhaps a couple good defenders/centrebacks as well.

    It's not too late too win it all Arsene, remember, offence is the best defence.

    Think Everton will get a Euro spot this time around.
    West Ham? They suck.
    Saints should be better, but lost a great manager, so understandable.

    Oh yes, forgot, MU stinks! Rooney is a nobody, might as well trade him to FC Rostov for a semi-decent prospect, save the cash.

    A repeat of 2010-11. Pep wins the first league game and Mou the Cup one.

    Hope Mr. Klopp wins the Premier League this season! I like his attacking style, even though sometimes it leads to no goals...
    (or maybe the next, but hey, he will win!)
    Mourinho is boring, but hey, if he decides to go for it I might start liking his chances as well...

    Liverpool's good enough to do it. Whether or not they will stay healthy enough to do it is another question. Klopp's style tends to burn through players, so he needs depth to succeed. On the plus side, the majority of the parts are relatively interchangeable if you have the right type of personnel and you can acquire them for reasonable cost, so it's not out of the question for him to reload somewhat in January if the squad gets thin.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they pull a 2014 and stumble at the final stretch. They do however seem very robust this season and not relying too much on individuals, so here's hoping.

    If things keep going the way they are now, Liverpool v. Chelsea Jan 31 will be a must see.

    A new dose of WC qualifiers for this week. I wonder how the world will disappoint me this time around.

    Aye, it's do or die for Norway against Czech Rep in Prague on Friday. If we lose, there is just about zero chance of advancing through the group stages.

    Liverpool's aggressive and pace-heavy game will benefit from no Europe play for their team. I'd worry about it if they also had a Champions or Europa league full schedule.

    We said the same in 2013-14. Let's be wary.
