Do they keep all the players still?

Interesting to see United have signed RVP. Haven't really kept track of the gunners movements in the off season. I'm sure they'll sign a decent replacement. Hopefully opens the door for the Reds to finish in the four.

It just proves how much of a joke Scottish soccer is. Celtic will win the next three titles by fucking miles.
It's hilarious! Always has been a joke that league, and just as the rest of the leagues were starting to become as bad, Rangers go to shit and turn the top flight into a one-horse race! Why bother having a sporting league at all when there is such anti-competitive inequity?!

Though I shouldn't be laughing too hard, Scotland beat us in a friendly the other day

Mind you, Darlington are worse off. A very amazing story, relegated like 4 divisions below Conference, due to being fucked financial. This for a club whose dodgy owner built a 25,000 seater stadium for them in the aim of getting them into the English top flight. I feel for the fans. And a beautiful stadium, Feethams was left in ruin while they played 10 seasons or so at the white elephant.

I think the biggest crowd they got was 11,000. That's not even half full!

Money is killing domestic leagues. Why the hell do Manure need van Persie?!

Arsenal dominate possession (esp. with Santi Cazorla), launch 23 shots, can't score. Never woulda expected that.

I've decided I'm going to watch EPL games, and try and pick a team (not one of the big four)...I can be bought/bribed

I like West Ham and Aston Villa's jerseys...leaning to one. Maybe whoever wins between them today will win my support.

Liverpool could be in for a long season, I know they'll take a bit of getting used to under a new manager, but todays game was embarrassing.

That first goal West Brom scored was a cracker. W0-1L www.fasthighlights.com - Video Dailymotion

That's pretty much what I'm going by. Thinking of going with Everton. Their jerseys look dope.

Everton's a solid team, and they're a favorite of a lot of new American fans because of Timmy Howard (and perhaps partially because of Landon Donovan's brief loan spell two years ago). They always fight hard and have great team spirit, but I've never been able to get into them because they just don't have very eye-catching players (other than the hedgehog sitting atop Marouane Fellaini's head) or a distinctive style of play.

Two brain fades cost Liverpool two points yesterday. That turnover from Skertel was a howler.

Everyone warned me against adopting Arsenal a few years ago, but I wouldn't listen......
