This Just In! Things got Gross for Man Utd & Haaland is a Premier League force


Opening weekend of a brand new English Premier League season left Brendan Dunlop, Craig Forrest, Jimmy Brennan and James Sharman with so much to talk about, we literally delivered the longest weekend recap episode in show history. Cristiano Ronaldo had all the headlines before Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion, but CR7 couldn't steal the headlines once he came off the bench. Erik ten Hag's start at Old Trafford began with a punch to the gut, courtesy of BHAFC's Pascal Gross, who is addicted to scoring against Man Utd. Erling Haaland got off to a flying start as Man City ruined Craig Forrest's Sunday. Naturally our favourite goalkeeper had a lot to say about how David Moyes will have to manage goalkeepers Łukasz Fabiański and Alphonse Areola this season. Jimmy finds new ways to be clever with words, despite Nottingham Forest's disappointing start to life back in the Premier League. 

  Despite Darwin Núñez's dazzling start to life at Liverpool, Sharms is miserable and reveals a deep disdain for use of the traditional German character eszett, and the Spanish eñe. Dunny is deflated by Aston Villa's season opening loss to Bournemouth, though the rest of the crew back Steven Gerrard to get it right. Wonger is hilariously optimistic about Brentford's chances this season. The boys think that Bayern Munich have already won the Bundesliga after throttling Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt, on the same weekend Jonathan David lit up Ligue 1 with Lille and Lionel Messi scored a marvelous bicycle kick goal. And Lorenzo Insigne opened his MLS goal scoring account in dramatic fashion, as Toronto FC did something they hadn't done in over a year - win on the road.
