    Rundown of the teams I watched 1 game and transfers:

    1. MC: Nothing to be said. Just have to hope Pep has some baby meltdown like “the press is against him” when they draw a game. Stacked again. Ridiculous. They would have been in the CL finals if Spurs did not get very fortunate. Their bench comes in 2nd or third.

    2. Liverpool: Mane absence did not stop them. Hope their goalkeeper gets injured. Or Klopp gets distracted by the FA. I think they are a big step behind MC but know how to win.

    3. Chelsea: Lampard has seem to got them on task and playing very hard. They dominated most of the first half against MU, Hitting the woodwork a number of times unluckily. Then they were pressed 2nd half and gave up the ball in horrible spots and MU was clinical. 4-0 was not indicative of the game. It’s gonna take some time to learn what Lampard wants, so different than Sarri.

    4. Tottenham: Christen Eriksen coming on 2nd half was the reason they won. How hard does Eriksen play all year, he wanted Spain? Very strong mid field now with Eriksen staying. (Son and Ali on the bench) Ndombele appears to be an outstanding pickup. Dude has a ton of talent. Kane put the game away indirectly from Eriksen’s play 2nd half. Very weak on the wings. Danny Rose was awful. They sold their best back line winger in Trippier and he was not that good or D. FBs older and Toby Alderweireld was not sold as planned.

    5. MU: They held off in the transfers and did not get significant MF which is a weak spot. Bisssaka is very good. If his head is on straight for his age, this was a HUGE pickup. Hard to tell what H. McGuire will give them until he understands what he has to play with him in the back. But he was good 1st game. Weak in MF. This will bite them unless some youngsters from their academy make noise or winter transfer aides them.

    6. Arsenal: What a summer!So many New additions to be worked in later so we will see. Probably played the weakest team in the EPL,Newcastle, so really can’t say much yet. If you want to bet on a relegation team it seems Newcastle is it. Too bad because they have great fans. Arsenal bought to get to the top, will be interesting.

    Surprise: Brighton

    Had a fairly quiet summer transfer wise but the new manager’s system got them a 3-0 win away? And they beat a team on the rise last season. Last season Brighton had trouble scoring and were horrid away. They barely scored any goals away. Not a talented bunch so it will be interesting to see if Houghton was really that bad as a manager (I did not think he was, he did not have the players, so they got worn down last season and barely escaped relegation). Glen Murray still their CF. I think he is like 48 yo.

    MC was actually sloppy in phases, had a goal disallowed, and still 5-0
    Hope he gets to stay on the field and not get injured. They have so much sitting who will take a spot.

    Dominant performance by city.
    Spurs Extraordinarily fortunate.

    Goal by Lucas Moura was a cracker.

    If one actually knew who his head it was going to come off of which was extremely difficult in that group of people he was caught flat-footed but he still would’ve had to guess correctly

    That ending to the Tottenham / MC game....

    Sorry, I'm not sure how I got so far behind. Think NBC Sports posting games way late. They'd better fix that sh**.

    That ain't even ...Arsenal usually gives up 4-5 goals at Anfield. And Unai ing Emery is the coach, he won't even play his strongest starting 11.

    That said, Liverpool and their redneck fans - hope for another Hillsborough disaster tbh.

    Liverpool at Anfield is a horror to play.
    They are everywhere.
    Contemptful aggression.

    And then I remember them dismembering Barcelona.

    Had to go back and watch Chelsea @ Norwich. Damn, they almost got that 3-3 draw on a header that hit the crossbar late.

    Norwich not quite a dark horse imo, but a pleasant ascent from a promoted team.

    Gonna if Pukki leads the EPL in scoring.

    Tottenham and Arsenal draw at the Emirates.

    Arsenal dominated the game.
    So far Tottenham has played exactly a half of good football in eight.

    Transfer window closes tomorrow. If Eriksen leaves, Tottenham has little chance at 3rd or 4th.
