It's back! A few surprises on opening weekend: 2017 champions Chelsea lost at home, newly promoted Huddersfield won at Palace. Spurs and Man C looked efficient but not spectacular with away wins vs promoted teams. Rooney went home and scored and won.

Lukaku took to that Man U shirt like a duck to H2O. WHam did not offer much.

Most exciting games were Arsenal 4-3 Leicester and Watford 3-3 Liverpool but the Merseysiders were denied a win by a bad offside call, or lack thereof...

Arsenal proved that scoring - even without Sanchez - should not be a problem but they need Mert, Kos and Mustafi back to shore up the defence. New signings Lacazette and Kolasinac look capable.

Best part of the Arsenal game came shortly after Leiscter took a 3-2 lead and some of the home crowd started chanting "Arse Wenger", the second time the chant started some guy right next to one of the on-field mikes could be heard clear as a bell until they killed the sound. :ohmy:

After the first two games, the City-Brighton game was a bit of a let-down, especially since it was the feature game of the day.

On a different note Bayern starts going for the sixpeat on Friday. :)

There's chatter that Bayern will be awarded the 2017-18 bundesliga trophy during halftime :lol:

I wouldn't sleep on Dortmund one bit this season. They have 4 or 5 class players on that team, a good manager and a Bayern team that isn't getting any younger.

Funny enough: now I see Dembele going to Barcelona for 90 million Euros is very much on the table. He is an electric player. Still have Reus, Aubameyang, Mor, Goetze, Schullre, Pulisic, Kagawa, etc. Very well rounded squad, but the loss of Dembele would obviously be huge.

Good to see it the PL back in action, even though ManU put an ugly beat down my Hammers. That is one stacked roster and the Red Devils will be tough to beat.

Dortmund should be fun to watch but they're really not going to challenge bayern nor will anyone else for that matter since Bayern have about 17 world class players haha

Speaking of Dembele though, he would be a much needed boost for barca since it seems like theyve lost their mojo a bit post neymar

Dembele has been suspended by Dortmund since he skipped out on practice once he got the offer from Barca, so unless they kiss and make-up he's a goner.

As always, Dortmund give Bayern very competitive games but Dembele worked very well with Aubameyang, creating a speedy two-headed attack monster, they've got plenty of other good players but Dembele will be missed. Once Bayern get their injuries straightened out and establish a rotation they should roll. They've got depth at attacker, midfield and the back line

I hope you're right, after Spurs I'm a Munich supporter so I never tire of seeing them win. The injuries and the age are two things that scare me a little.

I've seen Ribbery this year and he still looks great, Robben is just rounding back into shape and he is still amazing. I think Mueller will have a bounce back season. They've got Coman to step in and James can swing up on the wing and they have Gnabry on loan to Hoffenheim, he'll be back when one of the old wingers steps down in a year or two. I think they've addressed the age issue with Colliso, Rudy and the guy I think will be a monster on the back line for years to come, Sule. Kimmich will replace Lahm and along with Alaba can move forward up the wings.

They have so much depth especially in midfield, Ancelloti just has to fit the pieces together.

They open Friday against Leverkusen.
