The EPL/Nationwide League Thread

Might as well.

The Nationwide season has just kicked off. Ipswich managed a last-gasp draw against Reading at Portman Road last week, hopefully we'll do better against Crewe away tonight.

The English Premier League is starting tonight. It's an interesting set of fixtures - *** United play Bolton, who beat them twice at Old Trafford in the past two seasons, and Arsenal play Everton, who began their horrible run of results in the middle of last season. Plus how fun is this - poor Pompey will play Aston Villa without Svetoslav Todorov. Ouch. Still, I think Ayiebeni and Sheringham do have the goods to beat the crap out of Viller.

Pompey 2 Villa 0

Sheringham and Berger - Berger's little drag past Ronny Johnsen was amazing!

My team, as always, will be Liverpool.

And so far we've lost to Chelsea (congrats, MVD) and drew with Villa yesterday. We're clearly not looking like championship contendors, YET AGAIN!

Houllier out

So far Town has been crap thus far. Two points from three, two goals (one of them a penalty, amusingly enough) and we're currently being as shit as ever against Wigan tonight...won't be long before they get a goal, I reckon.

Arsenal have been doing fine though!

Houllier

I swear, this man gets a team that wins 3 trophies in one season...and promptly sells half the side. WHAT is he playing at?!?!?!?!?!

brilliant tactician though

you're a goal down through a dubious penalty in the fourth minute with your captain and main defender sent off

what do you do?

take off an attacking player and bring on Igor Biscan.

He's too worried about competing with Wenger for best French coach, that's his problem.

Zebras could have faced Real Madrid in the CL

ah, to reflect on those lost opportunities.

Man U-Rangers ought to be fairly interesting though, and I think Chelsea have a pretty easy group (despite losing to Lazio 2-0 in the pre-season).

Hehe...Ferguson is being investigated by the FA for misconduct after his behaviour at Newcastle last Saturday.
