Roma made it 10 wins out of 10 tonight with just the one goal conceded. Been really good to watch this season, excellent going forward and barely letting other teams have a sniff. Serie A's been really entertaining so far this season. Pretty happy with the BT Sport service just for that and bundesliga matches.

Thread is pretty quiet...who does everyone follow? I am a Rotherham United fan.

Thoughts so far on this years PL

- Most exciting title race in years
- Extremely satisfied to see Man Utd outside the top four, although I know they are going to come good in the end (booo)
- Biting Branislav Ivanovic was the best thing Luis Suarez ever did (for himself). It allowed him time to go away in the confederations cup and play some competitive matches, and then relax and then once again build to coming into the PL season ready to go. Player of the season so far
- Liverpool are an exciting team to watch
- Vincent Tan can go fuck himself
- Hull City Tigers wouldn't be too bad a name
- Amazing how much one player can turn around the fortunes of a team. Ozil signing for Arsenal galvanized them
- Martinez is actually a good manager
- Bale really was a one man team at Spurs last season. Soldado is not worth the money Spurs spent on him

Definitely so far, in that none of the top teams are nailed on to win any match, but it's more down to the best teams playing poorly, rather than the lower teams stepping up their game (possibly aside from Southampton). Not a single team in the league can defend well at all this season. Even Mourinho's turgid, boring, sit back and keep things tight brand of football is leaking goals. In terms of actual entertaining football, I'm only really enjoying Liverpool (obviously), Man City, Arsenal and Everton and again Southampton occasionally.

As a Liverpool fan it's definitely been enjoyable to watch, but it's almost certain they'll finish no lower than 5th at the very worst. I think it'd be a bit harsh to blame the whole "downfall" on Moyes, and hail Ferguson as an absolute genius. Realistically it's somwhere in the middle. There's a lot of players that are quite a bit average at Man Utd, and a lot of their best players are aging now. Ferguson got the best out of these players, while Moyes probably can't. Personally, I don't think Moyes will win a premier league with Man Utd, not with Chelsea and Man City around, he's just not good enough tactically over a full season. But he'll keep them around the top, and on stature alone they'll be able to attract top players to replace the crap and older players.

Personally I don't think the first part made a difference really. He was arguably the best player last season too and seems to improve every game. I think he's just stepped it up another gear. It is entertaining seeing us finally putting away the lower teams in the league with a bit of authority, but we're still a couple of players away from really being title contenders. That's just a bonus though really, the start of the season was all about trying to break back into the top 4 so that's still the aim. It's become absolutely evident though that Lucas and Gerrard should never be played together again due to lack of mobility. The Lucas, Allen, Henderson combination has been a bit of a delight in the last couple of weeks.

It's not really the point of the name, they're already "The Tigers", it's just the needless Americanisation to try and bring in money from the US. I guess it sort of makes sense since "Soccer" is constantly growing in popularity in the US, but it's more of a principle thing.

I think it was just the real buzz from a big money transfer. Got the fans cheering louder than they have been for years and motivated the rest of the team. He's yet to make a huge impact himself, but he's got quality in abundance and probably from next season on will be one of the best in the league.

He always has been. Happy to see him doing well. Won't be happy if Everton nick a top 4 spot from us though.

I was one who thought Bale would flop a bit in Spain but he's doing well enough to make me eat my words. Still don't think he's the superstar he was heralded as though. He goes missing for 85 minutes then comes up with an amazing goal. Still a massive ponce as well.

Soldado can be a great striker, maybe not £30 mil or however they paid for him, but solid. Not the most mobile, but he's a great finisher.The problem seems to be the lack of chances created by Spurs. Eriksen being back from injury will help that, but not too sure what's going on with Lamela. He was really promising for Roma last season. Tim Sherwood is an absolute joke of an appointment though. He's stealing a living even being involved in football.

To be fair, that comment was tongue in cheek.

I agree, it's out of order. If Super League proved anything, it's that Americanising English sport does not make it any more attractive.

If anything, the American's appear to have embraced the English league(s) as it (they) are. No fancy names required.

What's happened to Benteke? Haven't seen much of Villa to pay any attention.

Was last season just a one off? Was he rushed back from injury too quickly? No service to him?

Almost always buy him on Footy Manager in the second season cause Villa usually get relegated and I can get him cheap.

First few games this season benteke was a beast. Rotherham went to Villa Park in the league cup and he tore us a new one. Since then though, nothing.

So, Vincent Tan sacks Malky from Cardiff, and obviously has to payoff his contract. The main sticking point for Tan was that he felt he overspent in August, and said there were no funds for January transfer window.

Yet now he is looking for a manager who is reported to be employed (so he will have to pay compensation to the releasing club) and now pledges funds for January transfer window.

To say he was worried about spending, he's doing a heck of a lot more to sack Malky than he would if Malky had stayed.

Arsenal grinding out a result away at Newcastle. Hallmark of champions?

Liverpool have had two rough results against two of the top four in a row. I don't think they are out of it, because unlike previous seasons, I don't think results against the top six teams will decide the title, but form against the minnows will.

United's results are ominously picking up, without them playing particularly well.

Not overly concerned regarding the last two results. It's the two toughest fixtures in the league and I wasn't really expecting to get anything from them, and unfortunately we had them back to back with only a couple of days in between. Just got to move past it and onto the next game now. It has showed how thin our squad is once again though, and now we've got quite a number of injuries on top of it all. Sill quite optimistic we can grab a champions league spot.

Hopefully a couple of new faces to come in in January too. The worrying thing is some of the names United are linked with for January at the moment could well push them right up the table.

Would've preferred a draw there, but Tim Sherwood is generally shite and after this little bit of "new manager = good results syndrome" wears off Spurs will start dropping more points so not too bad overall.

The Chosen One loses another game at Old Trafford. Bless him.

Across Europe, it's not just Man Utd struggling after recent successes.

In Ligue 1, Lyon are 10th, Montpellier 17th and in Serie A Milan are 13th and Inter, while in 5th are 18 points behind leaders Juventus.

The clubs in champs league positions in most countries are clubs that achieved CL football through an injection of money, or get in one season and built from there with the money CL brings. Was actually shocked to see Milan so low.

If Manchester United don't qualify for the CL, are they going to struggle to finish higher than mid table until a significant cash injection comes along?

I really doubt that, given their stature. they would probably have to miss the champions league for a few years before any sort of long-term rot would set in. any sort of cash injection is probably quite unlikely, given the debt Glazer has put them in and his asking price to take it off his hands

me, I guess I've always followed arsenal since buying fifa way back when. Had well wishes for boro and leeds united when there were aussies playing there also, but once they got relegated twas always pretty hard to follow the championship from here.

arsenal do need another world class striker if they're going to win the league but. wonder if the talk about gourcuff has any sort of substance to it

feels weird to be talking about the league again. a year ago finishing above spurs seemed a forlorn hope..still even now feel a bit like finishing above spurs = successful season

As a neutral, I do want Arsenal to win the league.

But Man City are starting to look like a bulldozer!

can only hope they can't sustain their form or mix in a few 4-4 draws. nasri is a big loss. like iggy said, they aren't defending fantastically and should probably have dropped points at newcastle. I don't think arsenal play another top 4 side until march so it will be interesting to see where they are sitting by then

In the second half of the season, out of the top 8 we only have to go away to United, everyone else we have at home. Hopefully we're not finished at the top just yet

The thing about Man City is that they actually don't have that huge of a squad really. For the attacking midfielder roles, with Nasri out, they've "only" really got Navas and Silva. Centre mid just Toure and Fernandinho. Obviously Milner can cover adequately in all of those positions but they're an injury or two away from not looking all that strong. At the back, take away Kompany and they'll always look shakey, even though their other centre backs aren't bad at all.

For me the favourites are still, unfortunately, Chelsea. Especially now they've brought in Matic and strengthened one of the only two areas of the pitch they're lacking in talent. It's a shame, because they play dire football that's the least entertaining of anyone in the top half of the league, but Mourinho knows how to grind out results and (with an endless pocket of money to spend) to "build a machine" so to speak. I'd much prefer City or Arsenal to win the league out of the 3 favourites.

Damn. Probably a "gentleman's agreement" to send Rooney to Chelsea in the summer along with that. Not necessarily what United need most right now, but he'd improve any team. Could be a huge morale boost for the rest of the squad too similar to what happened at Arsenal with Ozil.

dunno, not buying into the Rooney/Chelsea stuff (other than the obvious interest) seems a bit far fetched. That said, what the shit do I know about the inner workings of a Premier League football team. And exactly that yeah, not going to fix everything on his own but even out of position he'd potentially add legit quality. Even potential for him to initially play as a number 10 behind a striker with the current injuries.

Also we're in a similar position in that we seem to have Mohamed Salah pretty much wrapped up, when what we need is a centre mid and a pair of new full backs. A bit ridiculous that we've needed an alternative to Lucas, who's become quite injury prone, for about 3 years yet we still don't have anybody. If we still don't get someone for there in January I can't see us getting top 4.

This thread is turning into a bit of a ManYoo bash. That being said...

FUCK ME I LAUGHED SO HARD LAST NIGHT AT THE PENALTY SHOOTOUT!

If one thing came from that, Roy now knows who is NOT taking penalties at the world cup finals.

Actually, if we're going with anything Man U related, Martin Tyler's recently commentary any time Januzaj gets the ball is something else. Tyler's definitely got a little crush on the kid.
