Arsenal v Liverpool last night

if America had watched that game last night

football wouldn't get such a bad and undeserved reputation

hows it gay?

you can break your leg, destroy cruciate knee ligaments and even die on the football pitch

only thing in NFL that might be traumatic is a stubborn grass stain :P :-P :razz:

I never thought I'd be one to defend soccer, but I watch EPL most Sautrday mornings (thank you Comcast & Fox Soccer Channel). And you can't compare EPL to MLS. It's night & day. It's pretty much the equivalent of NFL Europa & the NFL. Yes, 1-1 games look boring, and if it's MLS they are. But watch an EPL game and you'll see it's really good. (It helps to have a few bones on the games, but that's just me.)

So I am supposed to like it based on the injury factor? Not really a good argument, the sport in itself is gay.................

no you're implying its gay because you soemtimes see a player fall down a wriggle on the floor pretending to be injured.

fact is you'd be hanging out of your arse after 15 minutes on a football pitch

How the FUCK do you score FOUR GOALS on bloody ARSENAL?! Arsenal's trademark is the nil-nil draw. Sometimes they go all-out and win 1-nil. They are the San Antonio Spurs of Premier. They bore me to tears. (Also, their fans tend to be wankers.)

But 4-2! You could attract a fifteenth U.S.er fan with a match like that. I'd say Go Big Red, but you might think I was a Man U supporter.

How's West Brom fairing this season? Are they ready to give the EPL another try? Haven't had a lot of chance to look at their numbers this campaign, but they've always been a scrappy bunch.

The team I follow in the EPL is Blackburn. Brad Friedel is an alumnus of the same high school in the states that I graduated from. I love how his game has progressed over his tenure with the Rovers. He probably will be there another couple years, then retire to the states for a couple more seasons before hanging them up for good.

Have been pleased with Blackburn overall. They are still a little green, but Hughes has done some impressive work building continuity among his youthful charges.

West Brom are top of the league, highest goalscoring team in English football and have a huge +29 goal differential

we're ready for the Prem and the truth is, the squad we have now could finish mid table in the Prem right now.

I can't wait to get back into the Premiership, all my family are Man United or Man City fans so it's gonna be fun being able to play those teams again.

Goals from our last game on Tuesday

the last one is some class from Ishmael Miller

I've never really liked Blackburn, but I like the way they grind out results
Hughes has them playing tough, physical football they almost bully the other teams and snatch the win.

David Bentley is having a good season

Aston Villa is owned by Randy Lerner, and last I checked on the Villa website, they actually had news about the Browns.

Buff: Arsenal is a completely different team than in the past, young and fun to watch. They've got a lot of fun players to watch, thats for sure. I don't compare them to the dull San Antonio Spurs.

Arsenal are the best footballing team in English football (except for west brom of course :roll :roll: )
their passing and movement is excellent, they play free flowing football that is a pleasure to watch


Chelsea are the boring lot

playing for the 1-0 win
