2015-16 Football Season
2015-16 Football Season
A thread for the the discussion of the 2015-16 football season

A very poor performance from England today in their friendly with the Republic of Ireland. Rooney wasted one of England's few decent scoring opportunities and I thought Sterling in particular was absolutely dreadful to say the least. Both sides wasted countless chances to score and I think the result is a fair reflection of how both teams played

In other news - following the departure of assistant manager Colin Pascoe and first team coach Mike Marsh - former players Sami Hyypia and Bolo Zenden have both been rumoured as potential returnees to the club as part of the coaching staff. I for one would welcome the return of both - in particular Hyypia who is my all time favourite Liverpool player

I think somebody must be having a big laugh when they made the fixture list up and sent Liverpool down to Stoke for there first match of this new campaign. This is the team that they played in the last match of the previous season when Liverpool came a cropper good style.

Leicester City have parted company with manager Nigel Pearson after nearly four years in charge of The Foxes which was his second spell as the club's manager. A shame in my opinion after he brilliantly guided The Foxes to a well deserved 14th place finish and as a result secured another season of Premier League football for the club

Meanwhile Championship team Sheffield Wednesday have appointed Carlos Carvalhal as their new manager following the departure of Stuart Gray at the start of the month after being manager of The Owls for eighteen months. Another shame as despite our poor form at home (5 wins and 11 draws out of 23) last season he guided us to our highest placed finish (13th) for a number of seasons with a number of very good results away from home along the way too

Interesting appointment!
I wonder if Nigel Pearson had been sacked earlier would he have been a contender at Hillsborough especially the last time the Owls won any silverware he was club captain!

It certainly is John - admittedly I'd never heard of him before until the article about his appointment was posted. Already named as part of Carvalhal's backroom staff following his appointment are Joao Mario, Joao Cunha and Bruno Lage. I've also read recently that The Owls are hoping to appoint current Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper as Carvalhal's assistant

Meanwhile Liverpool's latest signing is defender Nathaniel Clyne in a £12.5 million deal from Southampton. He follows on from Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Danny Ings and Adam Bogdan. Leaving the club so far are Brad Jones, Glen Johnson, Steven Gerrard, Sebastian Coates and Iago Aspas. Certainly a busy start to the transfer window for Liverpool to say the least

I'm very much looking forward to next season for both teams

The saga of Raheem Sterling may finally be coming to an end it looks like Manchester City and Liverpool have agreed a figure of £49m subject to contract negotiations and medical.

Off to bed soon as up at 5 in the morning for our opening game of the new season away at Torquay.

I must be mad, especially at my age I should know better.

Definitely mixed weekend for Merseyside's clubs! Liverpool and Tranmere Rovers both got their seasons off to a winning starts with 1-0 victories over Stoke and Woking respectively. Everton managed to get a 2-2 draw against Watford with the recently promoted Hornets playing some extremely good football and they were unlucky not to pick up three points which would have been very well deserved

I'm pleased that my Championship team Sheffield Wednesday also got off to a winning start with a thoroughly deserved 2-0 victory over Bristol City ahead of a League Cup match against Mansfield Town on Tuesday evening. The surprise of this weekend for me was Arsenal's surprise 2-0 loss to West Ham. I didn't see that one coming!

The problem is there is some juicy fixtures coming up for some of the bigger teams that could put them well in the mix or way off the running quickly.
