Chelsea winning 2-0 sounds a lot more impressive than it was in reality. Did what they needed in the first 10 minutes and then looked pretty average for the rest of the match. Wouldn't have won against a team with better technical ability going forward. Didn't help that their best player went off injured just after HT and they replaced him with a woeful Jordi Gomez performance. Interested in seeing how Hazard does against a big team and/or when they go behind.
City/Southampton was a super match. Shame Southampton couldn't hold on for a point but I never expected them to so nothing lost. They looked very average with no threat going forward until they brought Lambert on. City weren't great. Worried that they're picking up wins when they don't play well. Shameful penalty. Hopefully for England's sake Rodwell gets enough chances in that Barry position. England need someone to come through in that position.
Hate not starting our season until Monday. Fuck that. Everton away is a terrible opening game. Don't care about the performance, just get away with something. I'd take a point. Hopefully Everton start the season poor like they usually do. Not like we're notorious for out great starts to seasons either though. Think RVP will start but I'll be surprised if Kagawa starts this one. Fulham at home next weekend they'll both start for sure.
