    It's unreal.

    I sit down to play for what feels like 20 minutes, and it's been 3 hours

    Intense game as some said time flys when you play this game, remember playing football manager 1999/2000.

    Really looking forward to watching Newcastle V Chelsea at the Bridge. Can't see the Maggies sitting back and defending even tho it is away from home.

    Also my boys playing away at the newly relegated Blackburn need a win after dropping a winable game during the week.

    Rooney's gash was pretty nasty. My question: Was there a big chunk of Rooney skin stuck on that guys boot? Or was it on the pitch? Yuck.

    One of the scariest injuries I've seen. If Hugo had come down just a little differently it could have been much worse.

    I smile thinking of Madrid or City missing the knockout stages. Brutal group.

    I recently started watching EPL. I used to quasi follow Bayern Munich but its hard to find them on TV. Anyway I bought a few shares of Manchester United stock so I am an owner () and a fan! Occasionally I will flip to Fox Soccer and watch the game that is being played. I did find Man City's style pretty fun to watch. The Liverpool Man City game a few days ago was entertaining to watch.

    I have found that regular season games are much more open than the big tournaments (Euro, World Cup, etc.) Its almost as if in the major tournaments the midfielders control the game and cup while in league play its the forwards who control the game.

    Absolutely. If you hold the ball too long in the Premier League, you will have surgeons reattaching your ACL's in no time. Continental players are often hit or miss in England and those that are successful tend to be the more physical and/or direct players (Van Persie, Cantona, etc...). To me, it is the most attractive league wide football (from team 1 through 20) in the world. Watch Teams like Newcastle, Swansea City, and Everton to see some wonderful play.

    I love the Premier League, but I have to go with the Brasileiro on the attractiveness front. You know that dynamic teenage Brazilian on your favorite European team? Yep, there is a league full of them.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
