Football/Soccer Season 2013/2014 Thread
« on: August 04, 2013, 13:17 »
Well, the football league kicked off yesterday (and the SPL) and the other leagues around Europe and the rest of the world are ongoing or set to kick off soon. What are you hoping to see this season? What are you excited for?

I reckon that the Premier league is going to be one of the most interesting yet, for a number of reasons. Primarily, with Sir Alex Ferguson retiring and Moyes taking the helm at Manchester United there will be a lot of anticipation as to whether they can have any success this season. I doubt they're going to win the prem. this season, but not because of Moyes but because of the strength that Chelsea and The bitters will bring this year. The bitters and Chelsea have had a change in managers too, and Mourinho's return will certainly be interesting.

Huge transfers around Europe already, and there's still a month to go. Falcao, Cavani and Higuain all moving around for blockbuster fees. Will Bale follow?

Discuss bellow~

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing Stoke play better football.

Also, I'm interested in seeing the tons of new signings play at their best levels, like Navas, Fernandhino, etc.

I would like Bale to stay where he is. He's a great player and he lit up the Premier League last season.

Hopefully, I think that all of the promoted sides have a good shot at all staying up, but I think Hull are well enough to fight all the way.

I was very excited to see the Football League in its 125th year kick off yesterday. Even better to see my beloved Walsall (who also celebrated 125 years this week) win against Tranmere.

Yeah. There's going to be a lot of Football League news coming from me. I reckon watching the lower leagues is much better than watching the Premier League.

Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in Dortmund's opening game of the season. I really hope he does well, cracking player.

Gutted to say we lost the Community shield to United last weekend, but hoping for a win at Bournemouth today to change that. We got a fairly easy run in to life back in the Championship with us beating Barnsley 4-0 opening day, Bournemouth today and Doncaster on Tuesday, we have a great chance of getting 9 points and putting some goals on the board.

Well, deadline day is very nearly upon us. I think I'm gonna keep Sky Sports News on as long as humanly possible. Hoping Stoke can sign someone else. Otherwise, looking forward to it. Though I've heard some papers say that Bale's sale could initiate a £500m spree...pffff I don't think so.

Well pleased with Stoke yesterday, Pennant is finally getting his chance to play more. That and we are actually attacking away from home...

Otherwise, hoping for a cracker in the London derby. I predicted 2-2 with Giroud x2, Soldado and Vertonghen...so far, it looks good for that prediction..

Our first few games didn't go as I thought with 2 wins, 2 draws and lose under our belt was hoping we'd have a couple more points and goals at this point. Also the fact we've drawn Rubin Kazan means we've got a long away trip in the Europa league which of course will effect our Championship form, as much as I'd love us to go back up this season I think play offs will be our best hope of achieving that at the moment.

Well, Mesut Ozil is now an Arsenal player. Hmmm...Giroud or Podolski / Ozil could be a force this season.

I'm just really curious about how Tottenham will do now, with the likes of Eriksen, Soldado and Lamela in the side. That, and Townsend looks like he will be a great player in a few seasons. Top 4 looks like a realistic finish for Tottenham now, depending on how quickly the team gel.

As for Stoke...well, I've heard Arnautovic is like a mini-Balotelli in some respects, so he had better be sorted out by Hughes. Also, I'm hoping that Ireland will do well too. I'm hoping that Pennant and Jones become great players. Pennant's free-kick against West Ham was similar to Toure's against Hull. Hoping both players can be top class for Stoke. 6 points and 5th place is awesome for us.

So Martin Jol is playing Sidwell despite Boateng and Karagounis being on the bench. No wonder we're not playing well. Sidwell is bloody pish.

Don't care what happens for your clubs this week. We beat the Wolves last night and I'm STILL buzzing.

0-0 draw for us in Belgium, should hopefully get 3 points against Ispwich tomorrow, but I can see us being ever so consistent and losing. -_-
