    Don't know if this has been done, but never see it, which I think is strange. A thread for talking about other football matchs. Reason I thought of it, was Brentford 0 Oxford 3 after about 12 minutes. I wanted to mention it, and didn't know where to post it. If there is one, link me and delete this, if there isnt a thread, Maybe we can discuss other games on here?

    Thanks bud. Ipshit down at home, worth a thread of its own. Really surprised this kinda threat wasn't open. I've had views on all the first weeks games, but nowhere to talk about it. WBA were a massive shock to me. They will massively improve with Rondon. He is like a Costa for a Chelsea. I really thought WBA would have limited them. I sensed another upset. Very wrong

    If we played a decent side. We have a chance to progress. Even championship teams seems to have given up

    If this was football manager, I'd pretty much 100% agree. But it's gonna depend on what we do first. If we cant win a Prem game, we need a win boost!

    I knew I was missing an attacking midfielder. Somewhat worrying that a several million pound signing is that lowly rated. I guess I should have put RvW rather than Hooper up front too!

    You think you were wrong, I did four accumulators on Saturday, had about 15 different outcomes I predicted and got every single one of them wrong!!
    I had us, Sunderland, Bournemouth (did them on all four lines, thought it was a banker!) Everton, Burnley, Bristol City to win, I had Rooney, Howson, Kane, Hazard to score and +2.5 goals in a few low scoring affairs - literally couldn't have gone any worse!

    Not wishing to rub it in Mate, but you were pretty dire in my predictions as well.
    Looking on the bright side, it was only a VIRTUAL fiver you lost with me <ok>

    I wouldn't have gone for Sunderland, us, hazard or Howsen. Apart from that, sounded alright! Funny old game ;)

    I think he has a strong case bearing in mind what she and her team did regarding Hazard!

    Really? Why didn't Jose tell her not to go on at the time?

    I see that Oxford United's 4-0 win away at Brentford was a record away win for a 4th tier side against a Championship club. Fair play to them! Brenford manager made 11 changes from the weekend apparently.

    According to Jose she decided without conferring with him!

    Really? They simply have different priorities to the manager. Player fitness comes first. If they'd let Hazard play on and he was then out for weeks, you can bet he'd have been furious at that too. It left the team without a player for mere moments, and whilst it gave Swansea a 11 vs 9 at the time, they didn't take advantage.

    If players are going to roll and theatrically claim injury every time they hit the deck, then medical staff are going to take it seriously because they can't afford not to. I think the blame lies with Hazard.
