  1. I'm making allowance for the fact that this is the first game of the season, but please can this be the last of the prospective squad lists.

    I went to Brighton. I came back with a black eye. It was a damn brighton girl.

    My father was right when he said it's not good to be an inventor. Once when I had some money and my wallet was nice and spongy, I thought to go and visit Brighton where I'd heard there was progress.

    I went on the train.

    What most gave me surprise and admiration was the palace. All lit up and very nice although when you got close to it, the plaster wit was peeling and falling off and it was splattered with seagull guano.

    In Brighton they speak differently from us and that was what cost me a portion. I asked for a lunch and they gave me a bottle of rum. After a little while a chica entered and sat on a stool. Because I have never denied that I am a womaniser I started talking to her and said "I'm a tourist, I come from Watford" and she said "I don't know, do you speak English?"

    Because I didn't understand anything I launched myself in and tried to grab a handful and she gave me a punch in the eye. I went flying and fell against the bar.

    Screw this I said. I'm going back to Watford.

    And that was the end of my visit to Brighton.

    A cautionary tale. Please everyone bear this in mind for the return game.

    We'll win this and all the pant wetters, including me, will take a long hard, look at themselves

    The first game of the season is an absolute lottery, hence our 3-3 with the Champions league finalists. A result either way doesn’t really mean anything in the first game but I’m going for a draw as that’s what we always do.

    That can’t be their forum, where is the swearing, in fighting , abuse towards the players , the doom merchants and the happy clappers.

    They got Britos right. Well they called him a thug when the true word to use is useless.

    Very very funny. A slow left footed 33 year old.

    This is a 6 pointer already. A must win game against a relegation rival. Lose and we are down. Win, we are still down, but we went down fighting.

    Don't panic you are wrong, must be a dream because we've not even kicked off yet.

    Both GK's to pick from
    All 5 FB's to pick from
    Best 2 CB's fit and well
    Still got Pereya, Sema, Hughes, Doucoure, Capoue for midfield so can pick between 4 man and 5 from a decent group
    Both strikers available

    No need to stress, but it'll be close, they are a tight side with a few new signings to excite / motivate and we are unbeaten in pre-season with a decent team.

    Head says 1-1, heart says 2-0

    Sorry mate. Latest report from the club: They're all injured. Should be back by Nov

    Be under no illusions, this is a must win game. To get 10 wins, given our away form, is going to be a tough ask.

    COME ON YOU ORNS!

    We’re going to go through the whole season and not lose one match. In true Premier Manager 98 style.

    However we also don’t win a single match and get relegated on 38 points.

    Foster as the only new signing to feature. Disappointing. Like 4-4-2 though

    Did we buy a new left back or not? He must be seriously **** if Holebas is playing ahead of him... Jesus christ

    Not surprised that none of the cheap punts made the 11. Good to see we fixed the LB problem.

    Can I change my vote on the summer signings from 2 stars to 1? If that’s our best lineup after summer recruitment then I’m even more disappointed.
    How have we not got a better left back than Holebas?! How do we not have any actual wingers? How are Gray and Deeney starting premier league strikers hahah
