  1. Too me, I would not class those as blocking charts really, the real scandinavian block will retreat more towards Russia during next week which will increase the chances of an Westerly influence, the question will be just how much the Euro high will affect the UK and at this stage it looks like quite a large part of the UK will stay under the influence of the Euro high. Those charts show the jet stream aligning a SW.NE'ly diretion so those type of charts is certainly not what cold lovers want too see in a couple of months time thats for sure..
  2. I'm not too convinced there is much signs of the weather will become too much unsettled as we head into next week, still early days yet but I would not be surprised if high pressure does hang on somewhat going by some runs if albiet it will be more nearer our latitiude than a blocking high to the NE which all models agree on will release its grip on Scandinavia. So it does look like temperatures may rise a little bit but perhaps staying dry and any rainfall threat will be to the more North Western areas.
  3. Whilst what the models show is interesting and whilst it will be fascinating too see how the potential battleground set up will develop, I do feel too much WAA heading into the polar regions can have a negative affect of disrupting the PV too much early in the season leading to a warm Arctic therefore potentially any cold we may get in the winter months could be more diluted, I always think the best winters for cold and snow tend to have a strong PV which builds and builds and then gets split by WAA in January/February. As for what I'm seeing at this moment in time, unlike the last 2 weeks, we probably won't see a true easterly but it will be interesting too see just how much this reformed Scandinavian block will affect our weather, its one of those where we could either end up with a very warm Southerly/SE'ly but equally we could see a more chilly easterly drift.
  4. Its same old England to me, lack of creativity going forward therefore creating very little especially against teams who will defend deep when we go forward. No idea why Vardy did not get any gametime just to try something different to be honest, plus he could of injected some pace because our front line looked fairly slow to me. I also like when people say the players dont care, i think they do but they struggle against sides who defend deep. Slovenia defended in numbers when we had the ball and counted attack well admittedly but all in all, its a game we should of lost but we didnt so move on.
  5. Although on the flip side, it could mean chances for West Brom to survive will increase quite a fair bit in all fairness as if the PPG continues at thia rate then maybe 32 to 35 pts could be enough. So many lesser like teams are in alot of trouble like Swansea West Ham, Sunderland and Stoke who all probably should be doing better than they are whilst the top 6 all look really settled and the style of football i seen them play are streets ahead the rest hence the many one sided games we have seen.
  6. Chelseas crisis is over now and you got to say the results so far reminds me of the depressing days of the 2005 to 2009 seasons where the big clubs will dominate and win quite a lot of points, they look miles ahead of the rest really. Watched the Liverpool game and its a classic example of the big club winning quite comfortably in the end really despite being quite poor in the first half. Sounds the same with Chelsea, poor first half but once they clicked into gear then it was comfortable so it shows the large gap between the big clubs and the small clubs.
  7. Wow, if that is a much better performance and you's still lost 3-1, then I do worry about Swansea because from what I seen, Man City deserved to win. Remember, you's are at home to them so your bound to have some chances and opportunities even against the top sides and spirit alone won't get you far. Put it this way, put that performance in against a Stoke, then you won't be positive at all. I also heard and cringe Johnathan Pearce comment about how Guardiola will find out in this country he will actually have full on compeitive games week in week out unlike at Barca/Bayern. So I guess last weeks thrashing against Bournmouth was counted as competitive then! Guardiola has came into this country and transformed Man City completely and the results are honestly no different so far than they were for Barca/Bayern, no doubt he will have a few hic cups along the way but he did at those 2 clubs also.
  8. Arsenal crisis is over, winning 3-0, typical dominating Arsenal performance. Really do hope Wenger leaves at the end of the season and the club and the way they play decline, those fans don't deserve success with the way they acttowards their manager. Then it can be a case of you don't know what you lost until you lose it.
  9. Well I see Man City won 4-1 at Stoke really comfortably despite all the hype that this will be one of Pep's biggest tests! Stoke look poor though, I really think they are dark horses for relegation, the Bet365 stadium is hardly a fortress, their away record is usually poor and they barely strengthened and I stand by that Sparky could have his QPR type season here.
  10. Yet if you go for every pundit predictions I have read, it will be back to normal for this season and Leicester will not even compete for the top 4! So the argument of the same sides at the top is completely valid.
  11. Urgh, feeling like banging me head against a brick wall here with all the nonsence about this could be the most competitive title race ever... Goodness I'm sure I read the same thing last season and the season before that and so forth. All this talk that 7 teams could win the league, well in actual fact, 20 teams could in theory win the league in ANY league so all this nonsense the PL is unique in this does not pull the wool over my eyes. Yet the ironic thing is, despite all this talk about the season is so hard to predict and it could be unpredictable to predict, the vast majority of predictions I have seen kind of goes into this pattern.... Man City to win the league closely followed by Man United... Chelsea will be back into the top 4 whilst poor old Leicester will finish in the top 10 but virtually no chance of the top 4 because of the extra games in the Champions League yet no one seems to say that about Tottenham? Arsenal will finish in the top 4 but no one is really giving them a chance of the title and the same old prediction that this could be the year they will drop out of the top 4 despite them actually spending money although you would somehow seem to think they have signed no one with the way the media are going. I'm not going to do the full table but heres my top 4 and relegation predictions... 1) Arsenal 2) Man City 3) Tottenham 4) Liverpool I got a feeling with the special one and Man United, everything will fall flat on their faces and Chelsea were 10th last season for a reason which was their defensive record and a poor home record. They have not strengthened at the back and whilst I rate Conte, its one of those where I would not be surprised if he does not survive the full season for whatever reason. I feel and hope Arsenal will win the league, I think they just got quality in their squad and whilst defensively they could be weak, they should beat the majority of teams and usually do and their record against the big boys last season was better than previous seasons, plus it be nice to have Wenger having the last laugh! As for relegation I'm going for... 18) Stoke City 19) Sunderland 20) Burnley I think Hull will be okay, sometimes a new manager could well have a positive affect but it will be tight for them. Sunderland have barely strengthened and did their usual signing ex Man United rejects and if they get off to their usual poor start, then who knows if Moyes will still be there by January. And lastly I gone for Stoke, I think things are getting a little stale there, not much investment, home record is not as good as people make out to be and this could be the season where Sparky could have his QPR type of season. And as for Burnley, I think they will be far too defensive and look fairly lightweight up front but I do hope they can do a Bournemouth and survive.
  12. Hmmm all a bit hit and miss really, at the end of the day, probably just a bit too far east but there some rainfall, thunder and lightning although perhaps I expected a little bit more than there actually was. Radar for this part is a little mis-leading but the models have pretty much nailed it that the bulk of the PPN would be in the Irish sea and in Western areas.
  13. Well I'm off too bed now and its a case of seeing if any lightning flashes/thunder will in the end wake me up and if not, find out how and why it went wrong, radar is picking up a tad but it still looks a little ordinary when you compared to the stuff that is about to hit the Western Isles and even the more isolated cells across parts of Western Scotland.
  14. i'm aware of that but just highlighting all those bright echos in the Atlantic, goes to show how things can intensify in a space of a few hours though so whilst the radar and even cloud images look rather ordinary, things can change quickly.
  15. Not a big fan of the forecaster to begin with but the graphics have shown a shift to a less thundery Wednesday however I would not be surprised if things were totally different again by tomorrow morning's forecast. Of course, if things do go not according to plan, it would be nice too have some sort of explanation to it but I somehow doubt that would be the case. At the moment, all the action is on the extreme tip of North Western Ireland and more scattered across SW Scotland, so kind of going to forecast so far that being said. Looks like all the CAPE is out in the Atlantic with those bright echos, hopefully radar echoes like those can be repeated around these shores! Its all a bit of a waiting game at the moment.
