Only one problem with this though.

 





Other choices I'll throw out there are Everton and Fulham. They'll feature plenty on ESPN/Fox Soccer because of Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey, respectively. Skills-wise they're definitely a cut below Tottenham and Liverpool though, so watching them can be a little frustrating.

I like Speedracer's suggestions for you. Everton is like watching Philly teams of old. Good enough to avoid elimination, but endlessly frustrating to cheer for.

Also: West Ham. Their fans are the true "football hooligans" that have probably done things that would likely abhor an obnoxious Philly fan (sucking eyeballs out of sockets in fights seems a lot worse than throwing up on someone or throwing snowballs at Santa).

Dunno if anyone else is watching this Chelsea-Norwich match, but Didier Drogba is dead.

Looks like he was injured and has been cleared.

This is brutal though:

That's fucked! It looks like there was not much in it on replay but he went down like a sack of shit

arsenal was playing a bit shorthanded, and the young defenders who came in as replacements just seemed clueless. some of the goals were brilliant... namely ashley young's and rooney's... but some of them towards the end just looked as if arsenal had simply given up. they also had a player sent off for the third time in three games.

me thinks a coaching change isn't too far off.

I was extremely surprised when I saw the score in the morning, couldn't believe my eyes but it's starting to make some sense.

OK...at first I figured this thread was a lark...now you've got to explain yourself...is the fiancee's new job EPL/soccer related...cause you suddenly have gone from a don't give a flying f*** about soccer guy to an expert.

The Arse are in serious trouble. Does anyone know if they have picked up ANYONE in this transfer period? I think they'll drop out of the top 4 this year.
