    EPL 2009/2010 Season

    Since it hasn't been started yet, I thought I would put the English Premier League thread out there. I always enjoy some the breakdowns that Redszoners put out there on the prospects for the season. Any thoughts M2? WMR? NJReds? Betterread? anyone else?

    By the way, I'm watching Everton play Arsenal, 0-4. For those that were saying Arsenal would be on the downward trend after their transfer season losses, it doesn't seem like it in this first game.

    That 17 year old (Jack Wilshere) for Arsenal looked way impressive in the friendlies I saw.

    I'm extremely interested to see ManU post-Ronaldo.

    I always enjoy reading m2's prem league write-ups.

    Also, can Man City dethrone one of the historical "big 4"??

    They've spent loads of money to attempt to do just that...

    Yes, unfortunately. Louis Saha just scored a consolation goal to end it 1-6.

    Ouch. How did Howard look? Were they goals that he should have stopped or was Arsenal just that much better than Everton?

    There's a bit of a growing concern towards Howard's seeming inclination to get beat from distance amongst US soccer fans...

    I didn't see all of them, the ones I didn't see were ones where the Everton D broke down and let Arsenal get in good shots. The last one was put in on a rebound off the post. From what I saw, it looked like Tim might still be feeling the effects of the Mexico trip.

    Looks like ESPN will be showing some EPL in America after all.

    Just wanted to update this after watching the highlights. Looks like most of the goals came from set pieces or bits of wizardry from Cesc Fabergas. Longest goal was from just outside the box. I don't know how it makes you feel about Howard's performance, but it looked like Everton's back four some issues of their own.

    In other "Americans in the EPL" news, Clint Dempsey's shot deflects off Bobby Zamora to get past David James, giving Fulham the lone tally in their win over Portsmouth.

    I watched some of Hull City vs. Chelsea on ESPN2 Saturday morning and was very impressed. They used the same feed/announcers that FSC uses (who are almost all excellent), only this time we got HD. My only hope is that ESPN's foray into the EPL won't kill off FSC.

    A very strange thing happened this weekend in the EPL. There were no ties. I don't know that I've ever seen that happen before.
