Craig Pienaar on topic 2021/22 Premier League season
:lol: :lol: Leicester going down that's hilarious
Norwich are woeful and will be relegated
Top 3 looks pretty straight forward, Chelsea Liverpool and Man City
Fourth place should be tight

CnC you got to remember what Watford was before the Pozzo family came in.
The stadium was a dump now it's half decent.
Once they got to the premiership under them they stayed for 5 seasons,down once and straight back up the very next season.
So not really a yo yo team since they bought Watford and probably firing all those managers have actually kept them in the premiership.
I like it when the owners are ambitious about their team and if they think the manager is not good enough for them they show them the door.
You obviously haven't watched any Watford games this season as they have been atrocious with absolutely no tactics whatsoever.
Watford had probably the best team in the championship last season so no great feat coming straight up in a championship which wasn't as strong as usually is.
If Munoz stayed,guarenteed relegation.
Not sure Ranieri can keep us up either.

True durbs, they also own Udinese in Italy. Plenty of money there so they can afford to hire and fire at will, which begs the question, why don’t they sign a big name manager so that that manager can steer them into the top half without the hassle of fighting off relegation every time they are in the PL.

Sky and BT Sport have not shown any live Watford matches this season although highlights are broadcast in the evening of the matches. The first live match screening is their next match at home to Liverpool. When Liverpool had that long unbeaten run when they won the league it was Watford who ended their run with a 3-0 thrashing. History may repeat itself.

“They also own Udinese”. Interesting, thanks, that’s my Italian side, only because my Mama’s home was down the road in Friuli Province :-)

Udine is where my parents come from so I have watched a good few games at the Stadio Friuli.
I wouldn't say plenty money as Udinese and Watford are pretty much the same type of teams.
Small teams punching above their weight and the owners have to be shrewd in order to stay up.
Last season Watford had premiership wages to pay with no spectators and TV revenue nowhere near what they where getting the season before.
As seen by the players they brought in this season they just trying to survive without getting into massive debt.
Just like Udinese it's a well run club and not a Leeds who got themselves in huge debt,got relegated and stayed in the championship for ages.
Ranieri,I would think,is probably the biggest name they have had managing them.

And if you had watched any Watford games this season you would have been all for getting rid of the manager,they are playing so bad it's not even funny and the managers tactics are nowhere to be seen.

Hey Durbs, from which town are your parents? My Mom came from a hamlet Savogna near Cividale near Udine. Savogna is only a few km’s from Slovenia.

My mom is from Porpetto and my dad from Torviscosa,only 5km apart.
South of Udine about 25km down so probably around 40 or so km's from Savogna.
Closest biggish town you might know is Palmanova.
Friuli Venezia Giulia is really a hidden treasure in Italy.Magical place with the alps and beaches within an hour from each other.
I remember being up on Monte Lussari in the morning snowing and in the afternoon having a beer at Lignano on the beach,easter time.

Newcastle United have been sold for £300 million to a company from Saudi Arabia. Suppose they will be spending a billion on players over the next 3 years.

HT: Leicester 1-1 Man United

Effing Maguire. He's such a fridge. He honestly has to have the best agent that ever lived. How is he playing for Man United, and captain. I can't see it.

Both goals unreal. Real class. Individual goals, but worldys.

First decent opposition and they get thumped. Man United will not be in the top 8 come the end of November. Liverpool will eat them for breakfast next week.
