    Here's the official thread for the new season...

    It's just past 2AM here in Australia, so I'll break down the first two matches of this opening round then head off to bed. Hopefully, I'll post the rest some time tomorrow.

    Arsenal 4 Leicester City 3

    ARSENAL:

    Started: 4 Whites (1 Englishman), 3 blacks, 1 Arab, 1 Turk, 1 Albanian, 1 Bosnian Muslim
    Finished: 5 Whites (No Englishmen), 3 blacks, 1 Turk, 1 Albanian, 1 Bosnian Muslim

    LEICESTER:

    Started: 6 Whites (4 Englishmen), 3 blacks, 1 Asian, 1 Arab
    Finished: 4 Whites (2 Englishmen), 6 blacks, 1 Arab

    Watford 3 Liverpool 3

    WATFORD:

    Started: 4 Whites (1 Englishman), 3 blacks, 2 mestizos, 2 Arabs
    Finished: 3 Whites (1 Englishman), 4 blacks, 2 mestizos, 2 Arabs

    LIVERPOOL:

    Started: 4 Whites (1 Englishman), 4 blacks, 1 mestizo, 1 Turk, 1 Arab
    Finished: 4 Whites (1 Englishman), 5 blacks, 1 Turk, 1 Arab

    In an opening day upset, Burnley beat champions Chelsea 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea finished the match with nine men after Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas received red cards in the 14th and 81st minutes respectively...

    Great to see very White-friendly Burnley upset Chelsea. Burnley definitely a team to root for.

    Wayne Rooney scored the lone goal in Everton's 1-0 win.


    James Vardy scored twice for Leicester City while Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud each scored for Arsenal in Arsenal's 4-3 victory.

    Danny Drinkwater has completed a transfer to Chelsea! They wanted to re-unite him with Ngolo Kante. This makes Chelsea slightly more watchable..

    The negro loving madness in the EPL simply cannot stop:

    Liverpool agree world-record £75m deal for Virgil van Dijk

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/12/27/liverpool-agree-world-record-75m-deal-virgil-van-dijk

    So this mutt,who was an average CB at Southampton and is really susceptible to a brainfart is the costliest Dutch player of all time.:rolleyes:

    Lukaku us struggling,no surprise:

    And he was horrible in the recent Manchester Derby where he missed a sitter and twice messed up in his own box,giving away 2 goals:eeek:



    Kane meanwhile has become the top scorer this calendar year with his 55th goal:

    I hope Real breaks all transfer records and buys him:drums:
