Can Arsenal not shit themselves at the Bridge? Can Liverpool get a much needed win against WBA? What happens when United plays a decent club for the first time all year? Is Southampton for real?

Balotelli dropped apparently.

Is there a widget or something we can run to just plug in the opposition name and then post that five minutes into the next NUFC match on my behalf? Thanks.

Real Villa-Chelsea from last year vibe about this game right now. Benteke on for Villa.

Seriously, is there anything besides vanity stopping those goalie caps from just becoming mandatory for all players?

Ben Afra, Naismith and John Terry, for me are the most punch able faces in the premier league.

I'm no tactical expert, but Arsenal seems incredibly bunched up in the middle every time they get close to goal.  No width or spacing at all.

Well, we're actually playing quite well - staying controlled, keeping shape, etc - and one moment of brilliance is all that really separates the teams.  We've had those kind of half chances and we need one of our attacking players to step up and create something real, while staying disciplined about not getting beat on the break.  Chelsea is going to let us have more possession now and they're lethal on the counter so we'll see.

It feels like Arsenal is always passing one more time then they should.

I haven't been following Chelsea since the transfer was completed - has Cech been starting in goal since the Everton game?
 
Perhaps Seven Costanza can ask his FIL.

No, Alexi and Courtois collided at 10'. Lady physio cleared him. He played 13 more minutes. As soon as he came off, the paramedics saw him. He's currently at the hospital.

Ah, thanks. Tuned in after half. This thread did let me know the Chelsea Physio is hot, though. 
 
Schurrle's work rate is just off-the-charts. Dude never stops, does he?

You should listen to Men in Blazers...you would have known this 2 seasons ago.

You also missed Wenger flipping out, Jose telling him to get back in his technical area, and Wenger shoving him a couple times.

Mourinho trolled him to the point of physicality.

West Ham v QPR. strange to see a big Sam team playing threatening attractive attacking football, while the opponent lumps it up field to a single unsupported striker.

I really hope QPR get relegated.

Wow, former Hammer Bobby Zamora on and he almost set up a very nice goal for Austin.
 
Edit- then draws a yellow on Thompkins by going down like shot on a little grab.

Haha, Green gives it to Valencia, but he was inside 10 yards so no goal. Still, pathetic from Rob.

I am loving MiB on NBCSports Mondays. 
 
And wow, I did miss that.

Can Wenger be suspended/fined for this?
 
Specialist in Failure! That's a suspension for sure.
