    Saw as soon as the title was confirmed last season when they dropped their level.

    Against Leeds they only just did enough, but Leeds pressed them so well. Bielsa's tactics and attention to detail are a delight to be fair.
    Yeah, was a one season deal, in the zone from day one. Missed out with 97 points the season before, with a thirty year obsession to motivate them. Can't have been many teams that would have swapped a CL win for their domestic title. Getting beat is a better driving force than winning comfortably. They must have started last season believing any dropped point could cost them, and no lead was enough until it was confirmed. City on the hand probably felt they could kick into gear around Christmas and still reel anything in.

    With the title effectively gone by December last season, this year the motivation to get off to a flyer is with City.

    It's a FFL nightmare when you look out at the other established players; Salah, De Bruyne, Sterling etc. Probably take 5/6 games to crack the code this year.

    West Brom have been absolutely dominated, bullied and destroyed by Leicester.

    Baptism of fire.

    The 3 promoted teams concede 10 between them in their first games.

    What’s the point.

    Looking at West Brom's squad, it's nailed on for a relegation struggle.

    They haven't added any quality to what they had last season, and will not be able to outplay top 10 sides as they tried to do today.

    Reminds me of Norwich last season.

    Well played Everton, great battling performance. Liked the look of that Allan fella.

    I see that the Blunts are more than usual our cast-offs these days.

    Ollie Burke with Benny and McGoldrick on the bench, as well as Jagielka who seems to have been around for centuries now and Ethan Ampadu (who was probably born after his debut).

    Scouse Jack not making the bench at all, and Billy starting.

    Speaking of young kids I don't get why Wolves have Luke M doing nothing, sure it's his A-level year and he's still doing them (smart lad, I'm a big fan) but not sure what good it is doing with him not on the bench. Why a loan out isn't beneficial I don't know.

    Sky’s coverage of Bale’s transfer is ridiculous, they’ve got reporters at Madrid airport & Heathrow and they’re discussing his travel plans to North London

    Sad bastards, really hope it falls through

    Still no mention of Macclesfield

    I’m enjoying the All or Nothing Tottenham Jose show on Amazon. Anyone else watched it?

    Nah, couldn't give a fuck what goes on behind the scenes at Spurs unless it's something bad

    I might watch the episode when Mourinho gets the sack or when Kane leaves

    I preferred Spurs when they spent a fortune every season and sacked the manager every 18 months only to continually finish 10th. That might sound hypocritical from a Forest supporter. Moaninho will hopefully put them back on that path.

    Prefer Sunderland Till I Die. More actual club backroom stuff. The All or Nothing series have focused (in my not so humble opinion) on the players too much, and it's shown footballers to be fairly dull and overpaid (and somewhat detached from the actual club operations).
    It makes no difference if Spurs fill their stadium or not, but for Sunderland it was a huge deal, and that made it more interesting for me (and knowing it was car crash TV).
    What comes across out of All or Nothing really will for me? The stadium. It looks magnificent.

    Saw a clip the other day of the Danny Rose and Jose meeting when Danny was supposedly very pissed off at not being picked. I've seen more excitement at the vicar's tea party.

    Didn't see the point in watching All or Nothing. I already know which one Spurs ended up with.

    Yep enjoyed All or Nothing but Sunderland one was a lot more candid.

    The more knobheads behind the scenes the better TV it makes. If you are after that sort of thing, watch the QPR one!

    Nine episodes of building up to the climax of Spurs season; scraping a draw at Crystal Palace, a team that could have nothing less to play for.

    That said, I thought the youngster Tanganga came across quite well.

    The Four Year Plan and Sunderland Til I Die are both quality series. The Sunderland director in the second season comes across as Eton's answer to David Brent.

    He’s a slimey twat Ray and you know it the minute he turns up. The scene where they get to whatever that lower league cup final is called now - he basically shouts down the fan liaison guy in a meeting for daring to say that the fans shouldn’t be treated like a cash cow.

    The geezer with the money is just a fan living his dream though - felt a bit sorry for him

    I'm still reeling to learn that Bale 'earns' £600k a week! I don't think in my whole life I earned even one week of his wages. And Brian Clough presumably earned the maximum £20 a week playing football; dare I say it (possibly he would), probably as well as Bale?

    I know my working life was spent in different times, but my first year in the Army brought in the princely sum of something like £180 plus a few coppers (what is £3 7s 6d times 52 in decimal?). I even played a game for the unit until they realised I was a bit rubbish.

    But I got clothing, food and accommodation provided and I was happy.

    Geordies are losing 0-2 to Brighton.

    Most of us are happy in our house... but not all.

    Brighton's whole central defence looks better than England's and they're all English.

    White, Webster and Dunk > Coady, Dier and Gomez.

    Timo Werner was impressed with them last week too.
