Welcome to the New Premiership Season!

Welcome to the new Premier League season, chaps! I couldn't be more excited to start the new season tomorrow morning. First up are the champions Leicester City at everyone's favorite relegation side Hull City, who seem to have contrived to have the very worst pre-season in Premiership history. That's followed by the traditional 3pm GMT fixtures, including Everton v. Spurs. And we end up with the tea-time fixture of Citeh v. Sunderland. I'll also have my eye on my beloved LUFC with our home opener against the Blue Noses, Birmingham City.

Enjoy the first full day of the season, chaps. And join me here on the LOB for all the action!!

Good morning, Bob. I'm excited to be joining you for the start of the new EPL season. Fred is around as he now one of Moyes Boys . Oh Boy!

The teams are in the tunnel as the Tigers players look more like sacrificial lambs while the Foxes players look relaxed , ready to prey on their victims.

7:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tigers fans are chanting for their owner to get out. Not the best atmosphere for a newly promoted team amidst all the turmoil.

7:27 AM

It seems that a good number of Foxes fans made the trip to Humberside.

Why did Hull even bother to get promoted

Damari Gray wins the ball in midfield off of Clucas then a deflected effort is inches over for a corner

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. Great to have you around for the start of the new season

7:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Corner to the Champs
Absolutely pathetic one!! I wanted Leicester to get an early for Captain Wes to score a header

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Gray was cleared by the first man then the Tigers eventually cleared his return cross

7:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, boys - I've been caught out with the 7:30am kickoff and by NBC showing this one on CNBC this morning, so I'm joining you a wee bit late. My apologies. It's great to have you on board for this new season.

7:35 AM

A free kick from Snoddy is headed out by Luis Hernandez for a corner.The Tigers nearly score off the corner as Curtis Davies heads just wide off the corner from Snoddy

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, mate. You can blame this on the bloody Olympics.

7:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Just read the predictions....Liverpool???
MUR, I'm disgusted

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

One interesting match up will be Hernandez vs Hernandez.

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL, UWS. Watch me win the PPP because of that.

7:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

For what it's worth, here are the team line-ups:

Hull City (4-3-3) Jakupovic; Elmohamady, Livermore, Davies, Robertson; Huddlestone, Clucas, Meyler; Snodgrass, Abel Hernandez, Diomande.
Substitutes Kuciak, Maloney, Tymon, Bowen, Luer, Olley, Clackstone.

Morning Bob
All the games today are on CNBC and this season the Sat early match starts at 7:30

Diamante heads out a long throw from Fuchs and Damari Gray has a shot nearly clear the stadium

7:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Tom is up too
All the prediction boys are up
I'm proud of them!

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't like the fact that there will be Friday afternoon games on this season. That provides extra matches that I will miss and need to record.

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

How about Fred he's up and prancing about. He's one of Moyes Boys!

7:43 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Come on
Let's have a good game

7:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Speaking of the PPP, there is a lot of interest with this match:

First goalscorer:

Vardy - Gooner, MUR, Red Devil, The Saint, Swansong, Simon and Yellows

Mahrez - Blue Devil and Someone Said

Morgan - UWS

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Seagulls defeated Forest 3-0 yesterday. A statement of intent from Chris Hughton's lads?

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Good to know, UWS - cheers! I hate the Olympics by the way.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Captain Morgan will be more likely to score than Wes Morgan!

7:45 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Nice Fawlty Towers reference
Don't mention Iceland
I said it once but think I got away with it

Nice one

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ahmed Musa could possibly score the first goal of the season. He should be a great addition to the Foxes squad.

7:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hate the US coverage of the olympics!
Nothing live

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yes - I forgot him - Red Devil picked him to score first.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great tackle by Fuchs on Snoddy

7:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Vardy with a whiff

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm not ordinarily interested in watching water polo, archery and bloody tiddlywinks. Why would I want to watch it every four years? And i hate all of the "human Interest" nonsense that NBC trots out (e.g., so and so's daughter had cystic fibrosis, father died in Iraq). Couldn't hate it more.

7:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Red Dragon did

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Foxes had two great chances to score. Musa led a break , Vardy missed his kick , then Mahrez sliced horribly wide. THose are three people picked by PPPers

7:50 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Couldn't agree more about the human interest crap

7:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Thank you, UWS - I thought I was the only heartless one.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with you two about the Olympics. Elizabeth likes to watch them, but I can't wait for them to end. I think half the events are fixed.

7:51 AM

What the hell are Hull doing
No cheaper prices for OAPs and kids

7:51 AM

Hull have not only taken on a new silly name (The Tigers) but have also done away with all the concessions! Wow! What a nonsense!

Danny Drinkwater volleys wide after a long throw by Luis Hernandez was headed out by Curtis Davies.

Ooh
Just wide my DrinkH2O

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Drinkwater close to opening the scoring there. Just curled away. No one picked him, btw.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mahrez does well to lay off to Danny Drinkwater , who shoots wide. The Foxes are starting to dominate

7:55 AM

BOOM, BOOM! Nice Chemistry, UWS.

7:56 AM

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Did you all see the draw for the second round of the EFL Cup? Bob will be interested to hear that Leeds will be away to Luton. Bob did well to scout them , so he will realize it won't be a freebie as they easily thrashed Villa .

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I was rubbish at Chemistry. If it hadn't been for Filthy Phil Milton, I'd have failed for sure.

7:58 AM

I saw that! I'm happy with a trip to Kenilworth Road.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fuchs becomes the first player booked this season for a late challenge on Snoddy.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fuchs picks up the season's first yellow for a hack on Snoddy. And Hull have a free kick.

Hits it wide - decent hit, though.

7:59 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Do you mean bottom of the table Leeds

Sorry commish... couldn't resist

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A free kick from Snoddy is curled wide and Kasper takes a quick goal kick, Vardy wins a corner off of Robertson

8:00 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Such a bad short corner
I HATE THEM!!!

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Filthy Phil. I like the sound of that

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Danny Simpson into the book now - an accumulation of fouls.

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Simpson is booked for late challenge on David Meyhler.

8:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We had lots of nicknames for Phil. He was also dubbed "Mellow Milton" after sticking on Side Two of Heart's "Dog and Butterfly" album on a ride home from a match.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Abel Hernandez is high and wide off the free kick as he is not able to score.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I like that one too.

8:04 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Vardy looks out of it

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Newly promoted Rangers take the lead at Dundee.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hull acquitting themselves reasonably well so far. Some feared that this would be a 4-0 or 5-0 rout.

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. Claudio has the option of replacing him with Okozaki or Leo Ulloa. If I were Claudio , I would let him know that he's not assured of being a starter.

8:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Again, why did a Hull bother to win the playoff final. Surely Wednesday would have been better

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I still feel that the Tigers wills struggle because they will probably not score many goals. That will hurt them/

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Simpson, heads out a cross by El Mohammedy for a corner as he was pressured by Diamande.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I saw Not a Big Club play last Sunday vs Villa. That didn't look like a team that could survive in the Prem.

8:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not very impressive so far from the champions of England
I think the PL should do what the NFL starting a while back... The champions should play the opening game of the entire season at home
It is a reward

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I would have preferred Brighton - they play some decent football, unlike Not a Big Club.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Vardy should scored. And then Mahrez!!!

Oh - I'm so close to two points there.

8:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Matt so annoyed with Vardy's blocked shot
Leicester go close three times
Better

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree - they should start their title defense at home.

8:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Me too about the Seagulls

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Three great chances for the Foxes. First, Jakupovic did well to block from Fuchs off a pass from Musa, then Livermore blocked from Vardy before Mahrez shot wide of an open goal. The best football of the match from the Foxes.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well over by Snoddy with a long range effort.

8:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Bloody hell - Vardy doesn't have his shooting boots on. What a miss!

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY hELL !! How did Vardy miss that one? Musa won the ball off of Diamande then Laid it on a plate for Vardy, who shot well over, missing a sitter.

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The good news for Leicester is that Musa looks the business.

8:14 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Another miss by vardy
Told you, he's not at the races

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with you two as well. The Foxes should start their title defense at the KP, not KC. I agree about the Seagulls, especially after watching them yesterday

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Musa crushed Barca in a friendly
Looked impressive

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great save by Kasper but Hull take the lead

8:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Abel Hernandez scores the opening goal for the new Premiership season!

Acrobatic effort!

8:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great finish

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into stoppage time as the Tigers win a corner. Two minutes Kapser misses the ball and King heads out. Another corner and

GOAL !!!!! ABEL HERNANDEZ GIVES THE TIGERS A SHOCK LEAD OFF THE NEXT CORNER. KAPSER MADE A GREAT SAVE FROM A CURTIS DAVIES HEADER AND ABEL HERNANDEZ ACROBATICALLY SCORED FROM THE REOUND.

8:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Last kick of the half

8:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So, no one will win the 2 points for the first goal. However, the first in the pool will still get a point.

8:18 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Opening goal for the chosen ones still alive?

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And that's half-time - what a shocker!

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Tigers have a surprise lead at the half thanks to goal by Abel Hernandez on the stroke of halftime. Claudio will have plenty to say at the half.

8:18 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

Ummm . . . who scored?

8:19 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

Oh? Now you like my amended rule, Bobby .. .. first in the pool . . . all still to play for . . .

8:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think it was my amendment to your amendment that is to be liked WHR!

8:22 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

What?! How did you amend my amendment?

8:23 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

I see the big boys aren't playing until Monday this year.

8:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Looking at these highlights, boy was Mahrez useless
Does he just want to me a gunner?

8:25 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Chelsea aren't big boys anymore !!

8:25 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Your ammendment was to give the points to a player picked
I said that you get an extra point for being first in pool and first overall

Ask commish and thanks for not reading my emails about it

8:28 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

Okay, fair point. Get it? "fair point" . .. you see you get one point for being first in the pool . . . that's a Goldy-quality pun if ever there was one . .

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good Morning, Johnno. How have you been? I like the amendment. BTW, It seems that Diamande is being credited with the goal and Mahrez seems to be anywhere, but at the match

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A really poor start to the season for the Foxes. We'll see if they can dig themselves out of a hole in this second half.

8:32 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ready for second half
Will the champions react like champions?

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Leicester have a penalty!!!

That didn't take long.

8:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Penalty!!
Was it in the box? I think so

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, Johnno - great to have you on board.

8:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Did anyone pick Mahrez?

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Might have been a bit harsh. Gray seemed slightly outside the box but referee Dean gave it anyway.

8:34 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Mahrez has been hopeless today
1-1

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So, Mahrez could give me a point here.

And does!!!!!!

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW!! Fatty concedes a penal;ty fifteen seconds into the second half, tripping Gray.


GOAL !!!MAHREZ TIES IT UP FROM THE SPOT , SENDING JAKUPOVIC THE WRONG WAY

Of course MUR's man crush on Klopp has the title going to Anfield....blasphemy for. Red Devil fan !

8:38 AM

The ref must've thought Hull was West Ham for a split second . . . we concede the softest penalties and did so in the 95 minute against Leicester in the spring.

8:39 AM

They are behind again

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Can I get another point for the first ex-Leeds player to score?

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great finish by Snoddy after a comedy of errors by the Foxes. A poor throw by Kapser then Simpson failed to deal with a cross and Snoddy finished.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kuis Hernandez with a clumsy challenge on Diamande just outside the D

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now that the First Goalscorer has been sorted, it's on to the first Red Card. Here are the picks:

Michael Dawson - Blue Devil, The Saint
Gareth McCauley - Red Devil,
Alan McGregor - Red Dragon
Alex Bruce - UWS
Robert Huth - Simon

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shoddy with a free kick chance now.

Clips off the corner.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Snoddy deflects off the wall for a corner.

8:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Matt's was amended in a second email
It was Matt(the Saint) who picked McGregor
Tom picked Glen Whealon Stoke

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I stick by Klopp. United should have chosen him to be manager instead of LVG. Even SAF stated that he thinks Klopp will bring back the glory days to Anfield. Alex Bruce for first red card? He's not even on the pitch

8:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Btw Matt changed his pick because Dawson is out for months

8:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Either is Dawson or Mcgreggor

8:50 AM

The reigning Prem Champs have never lost on opening day. Will the Foxes become the unwanted first?

8:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Leinster look uninterested

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mahrez too easily tackled while Snoddy was down

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Snoddy's got a problem now. Fuchs knobbled him and probably should have gotten the first red card.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good point, UWS. Some surprise starters for the Tigers? Agreed about the Foxes as well.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Snoddy showing the toughness he learned at ER as he continues on.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by Captain Morgan as he's not Abel to tackle Hernandez.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fatty well wide with the free kcik

8:54 AM

Bob
I made an editing mistake on the picks

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A double change by Claudio . Okozaki on for Gray and Amartey on for Andy King.

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Good start for Okazaki - he looks lively.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I wonder why Vardy and Okozaki didn't start up front last season. They were a dangerous duo.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Bob. Not sure why he started on the bench. I'm also not sure why Albrighton is on the bench

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Curtis Davies is booked for halting Okozaki's solo run.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jakupovic does well to turn the free kick from Mahrez around the post.

8:59 AM  
Blogger West Ham Rising said...

Is Huddlestone on Leicester's payroll?

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Livermore and Abel clear the corner from Mahrez.

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Seems like it - they must be providing him with the secret supply of pies.

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think we should do an audit. He could be.

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Okozaki is over from about 25 yards out.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think he's slimmer than in the past. Brucie must have made him run a few marathons

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It was interesting when Leicester were playing well last year, they were almost playing for fun, as if it didn't matter. When they faced pressure toward the end, they didn't play very well and often won 1-0. I wonder how they'll respond to the pressure of a title defense.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Okozaki heads straight to Jakupovic off a long throw from Fuchs.

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It will be more difficult this year along with the extra matches in the CL. Fatigue may be a factor. I expect the Foxes to finish around seventh or eighth this season.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rangers win 0-1 away to Dundee to record their first win in the SPL since winning promotion.

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A little more than 10 minutes for the champions to dig this one out. Looks as if Leo Ulloa will be thrown into the mix.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Musa called for a push on Snoddy

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Snoddy over another free kick now...

He went for it - and Kasper punched away.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He will be on for Simpson, which means that the Foxes will be playing with four strikers

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great keeping by Kapser off the curling free kick

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clucas booked for a foul on Musa.

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And now a Leicester free kick - can they make anything of it?

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice for Claudio as Leo Ulloa is on for Danny Simpson. The Foxes finish the match with four strikers in the pitch

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They did not . Snoddy headed away the free kick from Drinkwater

9:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hull just need to hang on to the ball now.

Long throw from Fuchs but Morgan is penalized for a push.

I think they will soon discover if they haven't already that this will be a far more difficult season

9:15 AM

No urgency from the champs

Probably not. They question is if they can maintain this.
