Liverpool scored but Sturridge was barely offside before the pass. Good goal though.

Giroud could be out for as long as 3 months. That would be a big blow for Arsenal. So far, he has made the difference in the first 2 matches. Without him, they have been pathetic.

That's a tough blow. Lucky for them it happened now and not after Sep 1st. They can at least attempt to bring in someone to help out until he gets healthy. May want to tempt Eto'o with a year of Champions League before Everton sign him.

Getting ready to play Millwood in an hour or so. Would be nice to get some momentum going into the next match.

Gotta find a way to score some goals (looking at you Pelle).

Man United prove they are idiots by spending $99 million - a record for a British team - for Angel Di Maria.

One month ago the fee was $70 million. As good as City, Chelsea, and Liverpool are, United better hope Tottenham aren't for real and Arsenal drops considerably.

Right now, United are losing in the Capital One Cup. May this team fail miserably until the end of time.

Too late. Eto'o already signed with Everton. Two year deal.

Following the match on Twitter .. 1st half was frustrating. Dominated the TOP and shots on goal but nothing to show for it.

Jack Cork finally breaks through early in the 2nd half though. His 1st goal as a Saint .. 3 years in the making lol

I'll second that. I think I would even enjoy it more this year, because last year I actually felt bad for David Moyes. I thought it was a mistake from the second I heard he accepted the job, but it's not like he could have turned them down I guess. Hopefully he gets another gig soon. Sounds like Crystal Palace are a possibility.

Just saw that. They are going to be running out of options if they want to bring anyone quality in, but as long as the windows open they have a shot. I'm starting to realize why Wenger never spends any money though, he's just not that good at it. He has spent more this window than probably the last couple combined and I don't think they have improved the squad much at all from last season.

WIN!

Pelle with a goal in stoppage time to ice it. 2-0 Saints FT.

Hopefully that gets him going.

I disagree. So you are telling me with the addition of Sanchez and two younger and same caliber of players replaced Sagna and Verm we haven't improved? I can already tell you that I think Chambers is a better option than Verm. He is only 19 and playing very well might I add for his big debut for one of the biggest clubs in England. Debuchy I still don't know about, and you have to give players who have never played in the BPL time to adjust. You can't really rate Sancez yet. I still wish Wenger would have taken his love child Cesc back, and got rid of Wilshire though.

Now on to the train wreck of Manchester United. Did anybody else watch that match?? They will not do well this year unless they sign ATLEAST two cb and a dm before the window closes (don't see that happening). That defense is just downright turrible and will cost them a good bit of points this season.

I think you have improved some, but not much. Not enough to win the league or the Champions League anyway. Arsenal is a consistent top 4 team, but if you want to overtake Chelsea and City it's going to take more than swapping Vermaelen for Chambers and adding Sanchez and a couple prospects. Look at Chelsea, they were whiskers away last year and they go out and get Costa, Fabregas, Drogba, and bring Courtois back from loan. That's an upgrade on 3 if not 4 of their starting 11. BTW, if I wasn't a Liverpool supporter I would pull for the Gunners, so I may be a little hard on them because I'd like to see them ahead of Chelsea and City. Just not my Reds.

I agree but you also have to look at the difference between the clubs and who they are backed by. Chelsea and City spend money with no care in the world. Not many clubs can do that. Arsenal never have and more than likely never will spend like that. I agree we need more pieces to win the league and Champs league, but I think that if we sign a fwd and dm we have a legit shot at winning. Until that day though it will be just competing to win the trophy, and not a legit shot at winning it imo.

Granted they weren't playing a lot of starters, it was still entertaining to see them getting stomped by a team whose entire payroll for the season is less than Wayne Rooney gets paid in three weeks.

Regarding DiMaria, he's a great player and I would love to have him on my team (Liverpool). But, as you have mentioned, United's problems are in their CM and defense, so to pay that kind of money for one player instead of splitting it among a couple of players that could help them in those areas that they are weak in is crazy.

I was never a big fan of Moyes, but feel bad for how he was treated by ManU. Ferguson left him with an aging team, and one that couldn't be turned around in one season. Having said that, I despise ManU and hope that Van Gaalbladder takes them deeper into the trenches.

Yep, at least we won't have to hear Mourinho crying all year about being outspent by City. Chelsea could have literally pulled all of their loanees together last year and formed a team that would have been more expensive than all but a handful in the league.

Sorry but you're both wrong. With Financial Fair Play clubs like Chelsea and City just can't outspend. They have to sell in order to buy. Those days are over. Yes they get revenues and have a great sponsorship deal. However thank PSG for being idiots and giving Chelsea buckets of cash for Luiz. City hardly spent any money in the off-season. You can't point the finger at the rich owners now because the books have to balance. Chelsea made fantastic moves with the money they have.

Contrast that with Arsenal who have more money than anyone but don't spend wisely. Same these days for United. They have a bunch of idiots running that club - and I couldn't be happier.

Watching Man U implode today was awesome. Knowing that they are a train wreck with idiots in charge means long term failure. That's even better.

You can't point the finger at the rich owners now because the books have to balance. Chelsea made fantastic moves with the money they have.

Contrast that with Arsenal who have more money than anyone but don't spend wisely. Same these days for United. They have a bunch of idiots running that club - and I couldn't be happier.
Hey I'm not complaining, just thought it was humorous how Jose cried all last year about how much money City spent on their team while completely ignoring how much money Chelsea had spent over the last decade. I swear, sometimes Mourinho would buy players just to keep them off Premier League Rival's Teams and then banish them to the reserves or loan them back out of England.
