    A few of my Arsenal mates were pointing out how our game hadn't sold out yet last week (it has now)

    It's nothing new tho even back in the Highbury days August games were always much easier to get tickets for as lots of folks were on holiday.

    As TH says, the opening game is always slow to sell out - and even then, loads of ST holders are on their hols so it may not even be fully attended. In principle, I agree, always like to get to the first (and last) game. It's when every fan should be excited, regardless of where/what you are in the league etc.

    Two goals up away against Chesterfield already. That'll do nicely.

    Nipping out to the garage in the garden for a cigarette results in soggy feet. It's very wet.

    I mean, seriously? A game called off with a waterlogged pitch at the beginning of august?

    Ground too hard probably, water just sitting there, drainage system overwhelmed? Got to be a first at any rate.

    Same shit, different season. Awful again, only a matter of time for Bruce now. This season is crucial for the finances if nothing else as the parachute payments will run out this season and the wages at Villa must be ridiculous.

    Interesting to note too that the consistently best players in the last two games have been the goal keeper, Onomoha and O'Hare. Villa have approached relegation in exactly the wrong way, last season could have been used to bring through the youth but instead spent 90 million that is amounting to turd.

    Great start for us too. Selling our best two players is really working for us....

    To be fair... their excuses arent entirely invalid. Theres no value in the market, the players they were looking at have doubled in value overnight, theres a dozen clubs of similar statures all after the same players, blah, blah, blah... but we are 1 for 6 and the end of the window is looming. It seems like the academy system is kind of working in that most of the moderate sized clubs are all competing for the top tiers rejects.

    Ironically, for all their whining, Huddersfield and Watford managed to find value in the market when they paid 11m for Ince and 8m for Hughes..

    Wolves or Middlesbrough to win the league.

    Outlandish prediction, I know.

    We ground out a 1-0 with preston. At least we are off to a better start than last year.

    Wolves to win the league. Bought their way to it somewhat, but if I was a betting man.

    Edit; er, apparently I can't remember things I post even two days ago
