Can you just use your du box or do you need a new box?

Once again an almighty ****ing mess.

Gray and Keys clearly didn't really know what they were doing, which was surprising. The HD channels are all in English according to my options but blasting out the usual Arabic bollocks. Non-HD football on Jazeera is barely worth watching and then the United v Swansea game had the commentary coming before the picture (by 4secs) which was pretty annoying.

Whole thing was hopefully just first day nerves / glitches. They definitely need to stop telling me that I can change it to English though, because I have and it doesn't ****ing work.

It wasn't the best. Lets just hope its teething problems and they get it sorted for next week.

I quite liked the set up.... The graphic showing the penalty takers last 5 pens was a nice touch as was the cards being displayed above the score.

Either way, Liverpool were mighty lucky, Arsenal can have no complaints about the second 'penalty' after getting a free pass when their keeper stayed on the field for the first pen. He should have walked. Benteke is a machine! As for United..... I was worrying after the first 20 minutes as it was uber dull, however, RVP's first goal was awesome!

Van Pizzle is you're chance of winning the league, if he stays fit, you've got a chance.

Welbeck is beyond me, he has already beaten his goal tally in the league for all of last season...in the first game...how is he still there?

I think there will be some business done before the window slams shut so I am not too worried...... yet! Also Zaha looks good (if a little raw), as does Adnan Ljkwlxzrj or whatever his name is.

I agree with you on Welbeck, I have never really been a fan. He just looks awkward, like a new foal trying to take it's first steps. The funny thing is that a lot of the pundits rate him.... Also how he seems to keep Hernandez out of the team when the Little Pea is a natural goal scorer is beyond me.

I stopped a guy in the street and said, "Can you help me? I'm looking for a rubbish tip."

He said, "Arsenal to win the Premiership."

Cheeky git!

Not looking forward to tonights game, got a feeling we'll get stuffed. But if we win 0:4 then we'll go top. Only problem is if we lose 4:0 we'll be bottom.

I'm a bit worried about it from a city fan point of view but I worry about every game!

Remy will score.
