    Morata comes off the bench, talk about impact, he's only gone and pulled one back for the cosmopolitan money grubbers. It's 1-3 and all to play for. Mon Dyche son.

    Chelsea are all over Burnley like a rash. Could have been 2-3, but Morata helps the ball into the net and he's just offside. It's all hands to the pump. Come on Burnley.

    Cesc sent off. Chelsea down to 9.

    You wait all off-season, you get excited about a new manager and a new system, the team picks up a few complementary pieces to a team already with a lot of talent, and then you see an absolutely wretched performance against a team the just got promoted with a negative goal differential. Fuck. Every year they keep doing this to me.

    Hey Fletch, SydneySox was claiming on FB last week that you don't support Celtic.

    Stoke are 11 of the same guy- hardworking, disciplined, not making dumb mistakes, but not able to make something out of nothing. Eventually quality will beat them

    He was livid. Absolutely livid. I like Conte moved out of the way as Cesc walked off the pitch and down the tunnel then he moved right back once he'd pissed off. Class.

    Cold comfort but FWIW I think Palace are not the only team that are going to get beat by Huddersfield this year

    This was one of the worst performances by Palace I have ever seen - and that is something with quite a lot of competition. This is up there with the 4-0 game against Sunderland last year. The sort of game you think that your manager might lose his job over if it wasn't his first game.

    I don't. It's not in my DNA to support a football team, and I'm neither Catholic or Protestant and i hate the ulsterisation of Scotland, it's sport and politics. But, i really like them, watch all the games. And more and more since the referendum and since I moved to the Southside (i live ten minutes walk from Ibrox, used to live two mins from the ground).

    It's really hard to live in Glasgow, (but not be from Glasgow), be of sound mind and not have a soft spot for Celtic.

    So they'll be short next week against Spurs? That's too bad.

    I'll admit I was skeptical of the Rooney signing but he was far and away the man of the match for Everton...just in a different class than everyone else on the pitch today (except maybe Pickford who was also superb although he didn't have much to do until the last 30 min or so).

    The whole back three was on the whole pretty lousy. But Fosu-Mensah (nice autocorrect with tofu!) started and made one excellent goal-saving tackle in the box. He was a relative bright spot. I'm happy to see more of him, and we probably need more of his kind of speed if they're going to keep playing 3 at the back.

    Of course they're gonna be amped up for it, but a very impressive showing from Brighton & Hove Albion in their first premier league game ever.

    When was the last time he lost an FA Cup? Probably before this curse kicked off.

    Conte is a bald denier

    Red card to Shelvey.

    Gotta think Spurs will find some room now, although this has been a weird first weekend.

    And that next foul on Alli could have been one as well, although it would have been a soft one, but still.

    I don't think Huddersfield stay atop the table for long.

    Spurs might as well let Danny Rose go. And what did Kyle Walker do for City yesterday? Hand the Spurs the EPL and UCL titles now. Cancel the rest of the season.

    He's such a shit. Unfortunately he's probably the lynchpin for the team.

    Spurs, City, and United all looked a step above this weekend. You can talk about Brighton and Newcastle being promoted teams, but they're both solid PL sides.

    I didn't think Spurs looked very impressive until they went up a man. 11 v10 against one of the worst squads in the league isn't something I'm going to judge much on.

    United looked terrific (and West Ham looked awful).

    I agree that Spurs didn't look that good. Liverpool and Arsenal were easily breached. City struggled more with Brighton than they should have. Of course Chelsea have nothing to be happy about. Everton looked clumsy against a bad team.

    Exceeding expectations were Huddlesfield, of course, and Leicester looked like it has figured out some things. Despite losing, Brighton seem to be a halfway decent side, and I'd take them on neutral ground right now over Stoke and Swansea.

    ManU is the only standout this week IMO.

    Huh...I thought Spurs was 100% in control after the first 10 or so.

    Footy is such a subjective game.

    Newcastle came out fired up and that spilled over some in the second half with the cheeky stomp right in front of the referee. I thought Spurs did what they were supposed to do which is solidly defeat a weaker side, game was 2-0 but should have been 3 and the goals they scored were gorgeous displays of how talented their playmakers really are. Stiffer challenge coming next week but hard to find anything wrong with their performance.

    Sissoko really needs to show something soon because this was a chance for him to play his way onto the starting 11 after a lost season last year and he was probably their worst player today. Spurs immediately got better when Son got into the game even though he isn't 100 percent. Considering Son's output last season, things don't look too sunny for Sissoko.
