Right Said. Lets hope that we (AFC) starts off better than they have in the recent past. I feel that we still are lacking in defense and midfield; some saying, Lemar is done, got to see it to believe it though.

Seri and someone at the back like Carvalo could seal it for us provided none of the trio leaves - Ox, Oz, Axs

If they are holding the club to ransom, which I feel Alexis's absence is more than what meets the eye.

But that is for another day to be whined about. Shall wait and watch, cringe, sulk, abuse and if all ends well (Win EPL) - shall celebrate like there is no tomorrow.

How I want AW to get his due and go out with his head high with people pleading him to stay and him saying. Sorry guys, its time to go!

Hehe, I joined up. This is the 3rd time I am attempting the fantasy league - all previous times I created a team, never bothered to follow up after that. Let's hope it is different this time.

Wow wow!! 9 man Chelsea crash to a defeat against Burnley. Newboys Huddersfield win against crystal palace. Watford snatch a late draw against Liverpool while Arsenal win a thriller against Leicester city yesterday. Everton win against Stoke with a solitary goal by the prodigal son, Rooney!

All in all a dramatic opening to this season's EPL.

Fun 2 weeks of the BPL it has been thus far. Man Utd looking good so far. Liverpool and Arsenal up to their usual selves, great attacking play but cant defend to save their lives.

It will be a fun season I think. Look forward to seeing Man Utd v Crystal palace in the flesh in a few weeks. Hope we get all 3 points.

Man utd seems to be have had a good transfer window. Matic, Lakaku and Lindelof are all pretty good and should hit the ground running.

I though I should share my experience of watching Man Utd vs Crystal palace at Old Trafford a couple of weeks back.

Seeing the match was the last part of our UK trip. We covered England and Scotland the week prior. We reached Manchester from Edinburgh via train on the morning of the game (30th September). After checking into our Hotel, we reached Manchester piccadilly around 1 pm. Manchester Piccadilly is like the town center and was buzzing being match day. We could see many supporters of United and Crystal Palace chilling in the eataries there. After completing our lunch, we took an Uber to reach Old Trafford, it was a short 15 min drive to the taxi drop off point.

The whole experience from reaching Old Trafford till the end of the game seemed to have passed in a minute. The match itself was quite entertaining, albeit one sided. The crowd experience, specially the songs that the supporters sing , is something that you cant really experience when you watch the match on TV. Despite being such a huge ground and the game being sold out, getting in and out was quite easy. We didnt spend more than 15 mins to get from the taxi drop off point to our seats. Similarly getting out was quite easy. There was no sense of panic or rush, like I have experienced in some Indian cricket grounds.

Overall, it was an out of the world experience and I finally fulfilled my dream of watching my favourite team play live. Sharing a few pictures that I took from the stadium. I am already planning the next trip :-)

Watching it in a stadium is always special, whatever the sport. I wish I could see Messi live one before he retires. I don't know whether I would ever fulfil this wish. I have seen the fabulous four of Indian cricket batting live, so that wish is done.
