OK, shall we do this again? Anybody & everybody are welcome to join in.
Usual TFF footie rules apply:
Predict each match as Home win, Away win or Draw.
No expert knowledge required.
The table is based on % success, so missing the odd week doesn't matter.
Robust criticism of another player's fave team and predictions is totally acceptable, as are comments such as the ref needed a white stick and/or a guide dog.
For the first weekend:
Watford v Liverpool
Everton v Stoke
Southampton v Swansea
Brighton v Man City
Newcsatle v Tottenham

Oh dear, aren't we old-fashioned? The balls used in the Premiership haven't been made of real leather for years.
This season's ball is the Nike Ordem V, see this link for more info

and btw your link http://www.closefleurionline.com/ does not work

We used to play with similar when I was a young teenager. They were called Frido, a plastic ball, reasonably weighted like the real thing but didn't absorb water or wear like the leather ones.

And consequently are much lighter, especially in the rain, making headers less likely to cause brain injury.

Looks like Liverpool are going to lose Coutinho - maybe I should change my prediction.
