Wrong thread again?
Nah ya fisherboy you, formerly the Isolated One. I’ll bite. Couldn’t find a Charity Shield thread to please you. And it’s a traditional opening part of a season, this one being EPL season 20/21.

No comment by you about this absorbing match? 1am Adelaide time past your bedtime?

Instead of Sterling equalising to make it 2-2, Dembele raced down the other end in the 87t...

Arsenal into yet another F.A. Cup Final with a disciplined 2-0 win over ManCity in this morning’s Semi.

Not a bad week with the win over Liverpool as well to boost morale.

Still missing a creative midfielder positioned forward of Xhaka and Ceballos to “make the play”.
