And so it begins. Another season and one with as low as expectations as we have had in a long time. Its been a very odd summer.
Carlo buggered off to Spain and was replaced by Rafeal Benitez. Even writing that is very strange. We have added 3 players to the squad in begovic, townsend and denari gray. Not exactly the galactacitos. Premier league rules have screwed us this summer.
So what to expect from Saturday. Who knows . Southampton ain't great. Hopefully we have dcl and richy available. They signed a new striker today so we know what happens there.
The manager needs to start well. Or well it will be toxic at the Old lady.
The positives are a full house and a return to 3pm Saturday football .
It's the hope that kills you so luckily we have very little at the moment.
But come 5 to 3 Saturday we can all dare to dream for a while.
Up the toffees. Let's be having ye !

Saints at their lowest ebb since they returned to the Prem. Relying on Walcott to score/assist, Ings gone, Ward-Prowse crocked, sh*t goalkeeper(s).
It's fill yer boots time.

Having not missed watching one game last season, I’m at a stag this Saturday so will completely miss this.

Genuinely have no idea what to expect. Lots of crosses.

I’ll go 1-1 townsend and djenepo

Walcott hat trick on the cards. Richarlison on the bench(tired after long flight from Rio) DCL hat trick then Richarlison comes on and misses last minute penalty. In other words a bog standard opening day draw,............

A scrappy game. An ill deserved 3 points for us by a solitary goal against the run of play on one of our rare forays forward. A perfectly awful example of what to expect from us on the pitch this season.
