It's also on Foxtel - 505

I don't know why I bother wasting my time watching hopeless sport, all my teams are failures.
Agree feel like I was born to be a loyal supporter that can't give up no matter how bad things turn out. We certain people born to suffer?
Wests Tigers - 3 finals from 17 attempts
Australia (soccer) - We just conceded a goal after 12 seconds :brick:
Australia (cricket) - We failed to make it through the group stage and Bangladesh did :crazy
Wanderers - Had 3 grand finals, won 0
Manchester United - Not even Pogba and Ibra could keep them out of Europa League
Barcelona - Didn't win La Liga or Champions league with the best player in the world
NSW - My whole life has been a curse
Swans - Apparently are no chance of making the finals (who cares about AFL)
Thunder - More wooden spoons than University :lol:

I dedicate my life to watching/playing/breathing sport and this is what it gives me in return :rant
I'm 44
Lived in Newcastle all my life
Followed Balmain all my life and went to 88 -89 grand finals lost both
Was too scared to go to 05 grand final but missus made me take her and our 2 son's, got lucky there
Don't really follow soccer but still hope for results to go locals aay or relatives teams way so here goes
My kids love newcastle jets so started watching them. Wooden spoon year after year

Man Utd have relos in UK that love th so hope they win but been poor lately
Love cricket ànd support thunder but apart from 1 season barely win a game
Sport is cruel to humans sometimes.

At least the Tigers will turn around in 2018 with Cleary driving our bus.
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve
:sign: :sign: :sign:

With the new season upon us time for my fearless ladder predictions

1. City (they've spend a fortune on the defence, will be much better this season)
2. Chelsea (were streets ahead of everyone last season, CL will bring them back to the pack)
3. United (will improve, but maybe not enough)
4. Liverpool (will hold onto 4th)
5. Spurs (Wembley and no signings, will come crashing back to earth)
6. Arsenal (they are the weakest of the 6, especially if Alexis goes)
7. Everton (will remain "best of the rest)
8. Bournemouth (I really like what Howe has done here, continues to push forward with good signings)
9. West Ham (can't stand the pricks but they have bought well with Chicarito, Arnie & Zabaleta. Hart is rubbish though)
10. Leicester (after last season's disaster they will find their way to the mid table, won't push for Europe again but should comfortably stay up)

11. Southampton (the exodus of players continues, and will continue to slowly catch up)
12. West Brom (will get to 40 points and hit the brakes again, no chance of going down but won't trouble the big dogs)
13. Stoke (see West Brom, will be a little easier on the eyes though)
14. Palace (should never have been close to dropping last season. Good manager should do well)
15. Newcastle (have the best chance to stay up of the 3 promoted teams, won't do much more)
16. Watford (Good manager in, although they have a lack of quality, will be in a relegation dog fight this season)
17. Brighton (fresh face in the top flight, I hope they do well, will probably start well and fade when the novelty of being in the top flight is over, and will come closer to the drop than they should)
18. Swansea (I think Sigurdsson is gone, and with that so are their chances of staying up, if he stays they should move up a couple of spots, recruitment will be key)
19. Burnley (Their home form dipped last season, if they can't get it back they are in a lot of trouble, they can't win away)
20. Huddersfield (Will struggle due to a lack of quality. They've brought in quantity but maybe not enough quality)

Such a great/fun post to start the new EPL season Marshall_magic.

So many new players across so many teams (except Spurs) there's an absolute mystery as to what will happen, both at the top and at other end of the table.
For me, winning is great but this comp is about who survives, and who falters.
Which new player is worth the dosh? Which player will disappoint?
It's a deadset whodunnit!
Can't wait for the fun.
Just wish it was still on Foxtel!

A few other predictions
-Conte scales the stands at Stamford Bridge after beating Spurs
-Wenger out planes will show up in October
-Spurs bottle job references: 40,000
-Lukaku to score a stoppage time equiliser at Watford, Lukaku, Pogba and Lingard will proceed to reenact the Thriller video in it's entirety on the pitch
-Watford part ways with their manager at seasons end
-Spurs to panic buy a flop in the last hour of the window
-Jose to outdo his "specialist in failure" burn of Wenger
-West Ham fans will continue to beat up West Ham fans

Pretty good analysis. Not sure United will improve that much, I reckon 5th at best, and I think Chelsea will still likely take it. Liverpool's season hinges on whether the Coutinho to Barca rumour has legs.

West Ham may place higher than 9th, the signings they've made are very astute.

I think towards the back end of the season Jose put all his eggs in the Europa League basket, and didn't seem to care about his league form. I also think Lukaku solves the draw problem.

I agree about West Ham's signings, although you can make the same argument about Bournemouth, and then the top 7 were a long way clear last season.

Optus sport is the stupidest thing ever. The fact that you have to have an Optus subscription just to sign up is awful. I just watch the games on SBS. Too bad they don't show many Arsenal games.

1. I want happy tiger back, because I can feel lots of potential West Ham banter missing that could have been exploited with all the player movements.

2. Early days but Man U look stronger than last season.

3. And what about Mooy - absolutely sensational start to an EPL career!

Doesn't look out of place in the EPL. Hopefully Hudders stay up and he's an integral part of it and can make a move to a bigger club.

Still feels surreal seeing Rooney back in an Everton kit, it was something that was touted for a long time, but I never thought it would actually happen. He looks a new player and both of his goals have clearly meant a lot to him. Whilst I can't see him hitting 20 league goals, I can see him being key for us and scoring 10-15 key goals in the league.
