aka where me and @Andre talk about how the Prem is overrated and we've never liked it :evil

championship fixtures - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/championship/scores-fixtures/2017-08

Actually looking forward to kicking off on a friday night, but our opening set of fixtures is a very tough beginning. After Mcinnes turned us down I think Grayson was probably the best we could have done from the available pool of managers (and unlike mcinnes has a more impressive/recent record in the league). i dont think we're favourites to go up by any stretch but i'd like to think we can at the very least be in/amongst the playoff positions

Anyone who refers to Atletico Madrid as "Atleti" instead of Atletico is a homosexual

Ok, that'll probably be my one and only contribution to this thread this season

Have fun

Rangers knocked out of Europe by the 4th best team in Luxembourg.

Congrats on the 2017/2018 treble Celtic.

I'm not convinced Grayson will get Sunderland into the play-offs. I'm not big on the guy, he did well to get Huddersfield and Preston promoted from League One, but he still did badly with Huddersfield in the Champs. At Leeds I feel he should have got them promoted from the Championship with the squad he had.

Was there any bad blood with Mick McCarthy? The Sunderland squad is certainly better than Ipswich. A return would seem okay for both parties right...?

I don't see us getting near the play-offs. I'd be happy with 12th. I guess there's the small matter of getting the club sold, but we've been on the market for three years, who'd want us now?

It's the official...

SCOTTISH FOOTBALL SUB-THREAD

FEATURING THE TEAMS:

CELTIC
Bookies are already paying out on them winning. Is it really that likely? (Yes)

ABERDEEN
Hayes gone, McGinn gone... McInnes not gone. Can we take second again? (I... guess so?)

"""RANGERS"""
Will anyone ever let them forget that they lost to a side from Luxembourg that had never won before and got knocked out of the Europa League before anyone else? (No)

HIBERNIAN
They're back, and this time they're not here to throw away a seventh-place pre-split spot and finish with an overall worse season than already-relegated rivals Hearts. (No one's forgetting that either)

HEARTS
Will they drop from third to miss out on Europe like last season? (I can't see them breaking into third in the first place, myself)

AND SEVEN OTHERS
also discuss Dundee United's slow painful death in the Championship while Inverness get promoted at the first time of asking​

I mean, he's not wrong. Kone was dreadful yesterday against Celtic (who wasn't) and we still clearly have a lot of work to do. Would love us to turn it round and start the season on the right foot but seems very unlikely. Hell, i'd probably take top half right now, which is depressing enough.

We need to sign Ruiter too, like I know it's only one game but jesus Steele couldn't have had a worse first game if he tried. Grayson confirmed we've offered him a deal and hopefully that comes off because he looked impressive in the trial games he played. Vaughan will badly need a goal too, seeing as he's yet to get one and missing two pens will do nothing for his confidence.

Looks like Lens is off to Besitkas too, not a shock but was kind of hoping we'd get a game or two out of him given he's been our best player in pre season

Barcelona on a roll :banderas

Hopefully Neymar doesn't leave. I don't really see him leaving anyway.

The dude recording him should be ashamed. People complain about footballers isolating themselves from fans and then you see this.

It's long been suggeted that Gibson actually has a serious problem - Hope he gets the help he needs.

Oh it's shite from the lad, apparently he was all over twitter hawking the video to the mail and sun so he clearly had one thing in mind once he'd got it

I didn't actually know that about Gibson, shame if that's the case. Chris Sutton suggesting we should sack him is a bit of a stretch but his whole shtick is strong opinions to get bites

those are outstanding.

the MLS all star game is the only all-star game I can actually watch. The players care who wins and actually try (well, 75% effort. But that's 70% more than in any other sports all star games)
