I have a few friends coming round to watch Liverpools first game of the season. I think this season will be a real ttest for the side as Alonso was a vital player in the team and even though we have Mascherano he isn't as good as Alonso so we will have a weaker midfield area.

Arsenal had a great start to the season. The completely dominated Everton even though Everton had the home advantage. Everton's defencive performance was one of the weakest I have seen in a long time.

Yesterday realy seemed to be a day for the away teams, only Chelsea and Stoke managed home wins, and Chelseas home win wasn't that convincing as the goal came very late in the match.

Liverpool are struggling with the loss of Alonso :/ haha and it really showed in the game against Spurs.
Chelsea's game was a little to disappointing aswell even though they did win. It just wasnt convincing.

Like Liverpool, Man U are playing without Cristiano Ronaldo, which is a huge set-back for them, and this season will be much tougher.

I think that this season will be a very interesting one, seeing arsenal proved the critics wrong by hammering the toffees, and the top 3's opening games weren't as pleasing as i thought i'd be. Man City on the other hand may pose a threat to any of the 'top 4' considering all of the teams first game.

btw i'm an arsenal fan.

I don't think it will be too hard without Ronaldo.

He and Messi are obviously in a class of their own but I think this opens our team up a bit and lets other people get more of a chance. Alot of players will shine for us this season but I think Rooney will make the most improvement with Ronaldo gone.

Rooney does get a chance to prove himself, but Ronaldo played such a vital role. To me Ronaldo is greater than Messi. He had pace, and got the team attacking. He was a immediate threat to every team that Man U played. The style of play is going to change for Man U, good or bad we can't say until the season progresses.

Anyway, Was Aquilani not playing for Liverpool?

He was supposed to fill the void.

I think he has an ankle/knee injury? won't be back til october earliest. Aquilani won't be able to fill Alonso but atleast it will strengthen Liverpool's midfield.

I dont think Liverpool really have enough depth.

If Torres gets injured, they dont have a real striker to replace him.

Looks like Liverpool are more likely to leave the 'top 4' rather than Arsenal :)

I dont think either will drop out this year.

Everton have already shown they aren't up to much and they havent had any money to improve the squad.

Man City will take alot of time to gel and even when they do they signed Tevez who was less than impressive last season, Santa Cruz who probably wont get many games, Adebayor & Toure which just funds Arsenal to get better players to move away from them and Barry who was actually a good signing. 5th is realistic though.

Spurs might have a chance but some of their good players tend to start playing bad randomly.

when you bring spurs into this, i think spurs are better than Man City, seeing as Luka Modric played a much better game, and if he keeps up the style, and if Spurs on the whole can finish higher than last and higher than Man City.

I wonder how many Man U fans are currently residing here.

Anyway, Arsenal really suprised me by scoring six goals. I have to say, I'm impressed. Everton, however, played so bad it wasn't even funny. Fabregas' goal, he ran about 60 yards and no one even came near him. They need to wake up from the holidays because Arsenal shouldn't have won their first game so easily. T_T

Until someone puts a Liverpool badge up.

Wenger has said he thinks there will be a European super league in the next 10 years, I can't imagine how it would go. The smaller teams would be gone from lack of money a few years after it's possible creation.

You know that whatever Wenger says will not happen.

I personally think that, Liverpool can't be judged after one game...A game in which any club would've struggled, yes we miss Alonso..Badly..Yes we have absolutely no depth..But we had no depth last season either...We've replaced Alonso with Aquilani who, from what I've seen, has just as much ability as Alonso and is younger.

We are now faced with what I think is a weaker Man U team, a weaker Chelsea, in the fact that Hiddink > Ancelotti..Ancelotti was just a name IMO, and ok, a stronger Arsenal team, due to the fact that they've matured, but still lack the experience and strength to make the cut..Yeah, you can pass against open teams...Just wait until you go away to Stoke.

I have no idea how this season will pan out...I think it will be more open than ever though.

Arsenal cant be too much stronger, while a few of their younger players are much better now (Wilshere) they also sold Toure and Adebayor without replacements.

Unless you count Vermaelen who was apparently only an average player at Ajax.

Toure was past his best...Adebayor will be missed, but he was always second best to Van Persie.

Vermaelen..I'm not too sure what to make of him, he did look good against everton but then again, so did the whole Arsenal team.

1. There is still time for the transfer window to close, so Wenger can still buy and he wants to strengthen his denfense, so who knows he may buy or not buy. Varmaelen played well in both the Everton game & against Celtic so he may not be the best replacement but he is showing to be good.

tbh no one at arsenal misses Adebayor. I've always prefered Eduardo > Ade, and now there is Arshavin? so what's the problem.
Arsenal on the whole seem to be a stronger team than last season, but how strong we wont know until the season progresses.

Arsenal can really buy anyone they want, bar the obvious over priced players.

But Arsene won't...He'll spend a small amount on a young player perhaps...That'll be all we see from him for the rest of the window..Sure, that player may grow into a great player in about 5 years or so, but Arsenal need players for now IMHO.
