Any EPL watchers here? If so which club do you support and what would you like to praise or rant about?

    I watch every Saturday and Sunday morning when possible. I've been an Arsenal fan for about 20 years now, but just enjoy watching the game. I'm a big fan of Aaron Ramsey right now. I was a fan of Ryan Giggs for awhile, but that whole thing with his brothers wife kinda turned me off.

    Yeah fair enough! I've always been a Manchester United fan, but weirdly enough I liked Arsenal and Chelsea. I hope they give Ed Woodward the sacking.

    I am also pleased Arsenal's kit vastly improved aesthetic wise with Puma.



    I think Arsenal can bag the F.A. Cup and Carling Cup this season.

    Man United supporter, looks like it's gonna be a couple lean years, lots of deadweight to rid themselves of. It's ok, Man United will never die...

    Loss on Saturday is a bit overblown imo had no RVP,Welback,Evans,Valencia,Carrick,Shaw,Rafael and Rojo. If LVG can another Central Midfielder and Di Maria things will be fine.

    IMO Di Maria's valuation is far too high, and therefore he would be just an expensive luxury item. The second I saw Vidal play a couple years ago I immediately thought he would be the most important player to add; but since he's not coming I feel Strootman will be signed in January, provided he returns to health by then

    Really excited about the Rojo signing, I think he will play CB when shaw is fit. His versatility is exactly what United need in the back.

    I'm a Liverpool fan myself. And while I'm excited that I don't have to worry about Suarez getting suspended anymore, I will miss what he could do on the positive end of things. They appeared to lack his tenacity last week and that's not a good thing. But a W is a W and 3 points are always welcome. I liked seeing Lambert come in and have the ball run through him a bit. That's what I hoped Andy Carrol would bring. I also thought Lovren and Manquillo were excellent. Maybe we won't have to win 5-4 this season.

    I'm a massive Liverpool supporter as well. I'm torn on the latest rumors of Balotelli coming to Anfield. Class player but he has more demons than Suarez. Hopefully Falcao but it looks like he wants absurd wages. All I know is that we need another striker..

    Super Mario would do great for you guys. Plus I Don't think he is a bad guy.

    Looks like Balotelli to Liverpool is almost official. Great signing, especially if it's only for 16M like is being reported.

    Not really sure how this works considering the rivalry between the two??



    Im a Liverpool guy and think its going to be an exciting season if the Balotelli deal goes through. He is a risk but his raw talent is worth the gamble especially at the reported price. If Rodgers can motivate him half as well as Sturridge he can make us title contenders instead of battling for 4th. The added talent from the Saurez sale has given Liverpool enough depth to be competitive on all fronts this year.



    Can't wait to see what the surprise of the season is this year! Man U out of Europe again? Totenham finally get something out of their talent with the new Manager? Traditional team like Villa finally go down? Let the roller coster begin!

    That contract is the funniest thing I have heard. What, he gets a bonus if he is "good." LOL

    If he has a free role like he had at Madrid(which I doubt) he'll be brilliant. I bet he'll be stifled by the system though because of Rooney, still a brilliant player. By far the best for Madrid last season.

    WHUFC here. First win of the season. (Knock on wood.) If that volley says anything about the season to be then I am very excited.

    Looks like Di Maria is all set for United, I hope they bring in Daley Blind and De Jong as well. Then Ed Woodward would be given some light for being so poor in the transfers!

    When everyone is playing, Di Maria, Rojo, Shaw, Mata, RVP, etc, things will look good for United. The problem is, other teams would have had a healthy lead already.



    Super Mario will do awesome in Liverpool and I'm glad Chelsea is having a great start too.

    All these signings aren't really addressing the problems for Man Utd IMO, except for Rojo and Herrera. They need at least one more high quality centre back and a destroyer in midfield(shouldn't have let that frenchman leave). Herrera looks like he's a Carrick replacement and a pretty good one at that, but they need to sign a Vidal type much more than a Di Maria. Reminds me a lot of the Ozil signing last season. World class player but more gaping problems in other positions.

    So CL draws are done. My home club FC Basel is up against Real madrid, Liverpool and ludogoretz. 3rd place is a must, 2nd Would be awesome. We've done well against english teams in the past though

    Speaking of Basel, I just found out yesterday the reason why they share the same colors with Barcelona, it was not a coincidence.

    Yea that was crazy! Everton had a couple near misses that could have put that game into double digit goals.

    Chelsea played awesome, Man Utd needs time to gel, good to hear Blind is coming, and in 2 weeks time for their next game, Shaw, Rojo, Blind, Di Maria and the other signings might all be well/fit enough to play together.



    Di Maria showed his quality today, only Van Persie was able to receive his passes, everyone else sucked.



    4-3-3 is preferred.
