    English Premier League Football

    IAMA TROLL LOGAN

    That and I thought it'd be interesting to watch all the englishmen get riled up
    Where's everyone from? And how do Londoners pick a team? Still geographical?

    Also,
    Did Man Utd really just lose to WIGAN
    W, T, F.



    P.S. I called it soccer in the thread title. MWHAHAHAHA

    Re: English Premier League (Soccer)

    Liverpool & Rotherham United fan here, very excited about Rotherhams' new stadium, looking very awesome

    I'm a Rotherham fan because my Dad supports them, due to his side of the family coming from there, my first football game I went to as a kid was at Rotherham and I met 2 of the players after the game, was a cool experience even if they weren't a top-flight team

    Liverpool also because my dad supports them, because during the war my nans family housed a refugee from Liverpool, and after then they spent time in Liverpool and it seemed to develop from there, Liverpool has a strong culture that seems to rub off on those that visit for any length of time

    I technically should support Boston, being from there, but with my dad supporting Rotherham, there's never been a reason to go to a Boston game, plus they've always been shit.

    @bob
    I don't actually support Celtic, I just find that song pretty funny..

    I don't support any specific team except Scotland, I just like watching football. If I HAD to pick a team it'd be Newcastle. Just because. Really happy at how well they're doing!

    Also, match of the day last night was quite unbelievable, I didn't know any of the scores so didn't expect Wigan to win!

    Re: English Premier League (Soccer)

    So we have Liverpool and Newcastle so far (and scotland...)


    How about that Andy Carroll?

    He might be in the 6th best team if he never moved...

    instead, he's at liverpool.

    Andy Carroll for Demba Ba, Cisse, Tiote, Cabaye + 15m. Newcastle got a pretty good deal if you ask me!

    Newcastle 110%

    Selling Carroll was absolutle brilliant business. I made a huge rant on a NUFC Forum I visit daily at the time and I am really biting my tongue on doing a similar sized rant about it now.

    By the way did a predictor on the BBC sport website the other day and on my results inputed we mangaed to get 4th spot ahead of Tottenham and Chelsea but behind Arsenal.

    Must be a reference to the tourist attraction that Alkmaar is most famous for: "cheese carriers":

    I cant believe they lost to wigan, but they were the better team and like fergie said sometimes we get the breaks and sometimes we dont.

    1 shot on target from Utd,
    Definately doesn't sounds like the worse team to me...

    City still won't catch up tho.


    EDIT: Misread Sci-fi's post, corrected response accordingly

    Re: English Premier League (Soccer)

    Apoc I think you mean 1 goal not 1 shot on target, very different things!

    Wigan - Man U
    possession 52%-48%
    shots 11(-8(3) () denotes on target

    Thus I would suggest that wigan were indeed the better team as has been widly reported by all who watched the game
    Man U suffering from overconfidence perhaps thinking the title is all but won and Wigan fighting for their premiership lives.

    Burning Ice and Biting Flame!

    I misread Sci-fi's post woops!

    Wigan definately the better team on the day, surprisingly!
    the one shot on target was for Utd (from 9 shots!).




    I like Roberto Martinez...but I really don't relish the thought of another season of watching Wigan struggle...when we could have another swansea instead.
    (how awesome are Swansea? huh? )

    I'd prefer to see 6 top teams, and 14 equally good teams....
    instead of 6 top, 10 good, and 4 obvious strugglers.
    That'd be sweet!

    I think Villa will go down as well as Blackburn and Wolves.

    Surprised Bolton hasn't sorted themselves out yet, thought for sure they'd never still be in the relegation zone at this stage.
    They have two games extra, but not a lot of rest in between. Make or break time!

    Can't see Villa going down, but they have been poor...
    really thought their defence would be better by now with McLeish, an inferior birmingham squad managed more clean-sheets last season.


    QPR or Wigan for the third spot I think.
