PL 2020/21 Season.

Not long to wait for the defence to begin.

Ditch the League cup, please. Or just award it directly to City, I don’t care.

Interesting, I wonder when fans will be allowed back in the ground?

Be good to sit back throughout August and watch some of our rivals slog their guts out while our lads are being drilled and fine tuned at Melwood. Kinda glad we're out of the CL. Kinda.

Would have been fine if we were in it, but not the worst one to sit out. I fancy us to go far in the CL next season.

PL is set up nicely. How much have Chelsea and Man U actually improved. They both talk a good game that is for sure.

Chelsea have improved quite a bit, but they still have Fat Tony in charge. City have Pep but he's seemingly going into 4th season senility. As long as they don't spend on any defenders they will not have improved.

The only thing that worries me is Salah finding his form for a whole season again. Not just 15-20 games. Our players need another break just to put 'last' season behind us and focus on a new one where we've won fuck all yet. This is probably where not being in the CL certainly helps draw that clear line.

How next season's schedule could look. Carnage.
Notice the early Carabao Cup rounds aren't even included here.

I'll say it again. In the grander scheme of things, Adrian actually did us a massive favour against Atletico.

We don't have to worry about UCL qualifers!!!

But we will have a community shield v Chelsea to start things off!!! Fat Franks tantrum has possibly given the likes of Sky Sports some material to try to create a bit of tension in the pre-game build up!!!

After winning #6 and #19 in the last 2 seasons, I think - and hope - that our focus will be on the big 2 competitions and sack off the two cups. Not sure i'd even risk Neco, Harvey and Curtis in them this season. Obviously it will depend on who is available at the time but when we saw the likes of Mane and Salah come off the bench against the likes of Shrewsbury, then it was crazy stuff in hindsight.

Also, the super cup and world club cup were great - but they could have easily cost us.

I'm just hoping that our players get some really good rest now - a full 4 weeks - and then when we come back, we go again.

Hmmm Id say the cups will be perfect for the likes of Neco, Harvey and Curtis- hope were not relying on them too much in the league or champions league, so the cups will be perfect for getting them some experience.

The FA have confirmed the Community Shield match between Premier League champions Liverpool and the winners of the FA Cup final, either Arsenal or Chelsea, will be played on Saturday August 28th.

That is two weeks in advance of the first Premier League weekend.

I was expecting that to be honest, it disproportionately benefits the clubs with big squads, given you need 14 clubs to back such a proposal I couldn't see where it would get enough support.

I think the only way it may have made sense/been fair is if the two additional subs had to be under a certain age and have come through the youth team, or something like that. Still not sure if that would be any fairer mind you

I like the idea of additional youngster subs to encourage development etc. But it needs to be controlled in some way to stop it being abused by clubs buying young players for this purpose. I think that even if you could name 8 or 9 subs (rather than 7) as long as the additional subs are under say 20 and have been in your youth system for a few years that would be a step forward. Even if you are only able to use 3 subs it gives the youngsters the chance to be involved even if they only got brought on for the last 10 mins when you are 3 or 4 goals up

I'd be more worried about City bringing on Messi and Lewandowski as 4th and 5th subs and taking PL to court if challenged.

Thats actually a great idea. 2 additional subs for 18 and younger, wouldnt offer too much of an advantage. Benefits of developing youngsters more quickly for everyone.

There are always going to be advantages of wonderkids at big clubs, but this gives every club a bit more scope to develop their own.
