Football fans join in to share the joy, the heartache and VAR frustration ⚽

The thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football.

Thanks for the new thread.

A quick reintroduction from me. I'm in Scotland and support my local team Arbroath (and have a season ticket).

But I also support Rangers (I'm originally from Glasgow) and West Ham (my gran was from Romford). 😁

I can see the Owls starting their dive for the bottom of the table right from the start. Hoping i can make it to a match this season. But alas, since i had to plan my trip to Sheffield to coincide with the international break, not much hope of that.

Gladbach's first match is away, first home match (24th August) is against Leverkusen. Will be interesting to see how Xhaka (ex of Gladbach, about 7? years ago) and Jonas Hoffman (sudden and unexpected switch to Leverkusen during the off season) are received.

We just signed Danjuma on loan after he flounced us for Spurs last January, fair play to him.

It's Dundee United not Dundee for the Arbroath match. Smile Dundee were in the Championship last year and were promoted and Dundee United were Premiership and relegated to add to the confusion. We've basically swapped one Tayside derby for another. Grin

I think it'll be on TV on BBC Scotland (might also be on iplayer for anyone outside Scotland). My seat is a few rows behind the away dugout so anyone watching might spot me at some point. I'm likely to be wearing patterned dungarees and an Arbroath FC bucket hat. Grin

Hehe well done. Arbroath is the more important team in that match either way. Grin

It doesn't actually help that we had a pre-season friendly against Dundee earlier this month too.

I'm actually hoping to buy Arbroath's third kit this year, I'm never normally a third kit wearer but it's a lovely blue and yellow one and more importantly it's been done to support Guide Dogs Scotland. Smile

Spurs v Leicester friendly called off earlier today due to a waterlogged pitch.

Looking forward to the new season starting, can't wait to get back to Priestfield, first home game will be Saints under the lights in the Carabao Cup, followed by Accy Stanley in the league. Hope the weather is better by then, love a footie match in the sun.

Thanks for the new thread OP.

I hope we play better than we did last night.

What do you think of the shirt? I quite like it (I think).

Checking in for the new thread. Looks like the PL Summer series kicked off for Newcastle in reasonable fashion with a 3-3 draw with Villa last night. Elliott Anderson is having a good preseason so far.

Not overly enamoured with it, I have to admit, even though their marketing department is obviously pushing it as hard as they can!

I liked the mostly black one we had a couple of years ago

I had offered to but there wasn’t any interest really, happy to do it though if anyone wants it.

DH and I usually do the Sky one but I am awful at it and keep forgetting about it then I'll check and half my team will be injured. 🙈 But I could try to join in with another for here though. Smile

I’ll set a league up in the next few days and put the code on here. If it’s just me on there than at least I’ll win 🤣

It’s all just fun so playing for nothing but pride (and to give you a vested interest in Luton Town vs Crystal Palace* on a Wednesday night because you have one of their defenders in your FPL team 😂)

*insert two other teams you wouldn’t ordinarily care about.
