It's funny, because even though Arsenal has made some of the best, but also some of the worst games this season, they still fight for 4 trophies. :P
I'm a bit sad that Man U's streak of no losses ended last weekend, but hopefully we can beat City and maintain the lead. ;)

So, Rich suggests Arsenal (even though they always try to walk it in LOL), and Andy suggests Stoke City, a team I hadn't heard of :lol

I may jump on the Arsenal bandwagon then

Looking forward to the Manchester-derby tomorrow, seeing as we got pretty good statistics against City the last years.
However, the result screams 0-0, 1-0 or 0-1 long ways, so I'll probably bring a pillow to the couch in case I fall asleep, seeing as it's City playing on one side.  :biggrin:

Yeah the Manchester derby has such great potential but is so often a let-down. :lol

I could see it being a fairly low scoring draw, maybe 1-1. If anyone wins it'll be Utd.

Great to see a thread for the Premier League at last. I've thought of starting one in the past but I thought you were all Americans and not interested in proper football (ie. played with your feet;)

Last Saturday was beyond incredible for the following reasons:

- 41 goals in 8 games
- Newcastle coming back from 4-0 down at half-time to draw 4-4
- Wolves (bottom of the league at the time) beating Manchester United (top of the league), ending a 29-game unbeaten run

THIS is why you should follow Premier League football!

I remember the 2009–10 Manchester derby at Old Trafford, when United won with 4-3. Manchester City had equalised three times only for Michael Owen to score the winning goal after 95 minutes. Damn, what a crazy game that was.

Normally this would've been amazing, but we're talking about ARSENAL.
They're the only team who can have a 7-0 lead, and whenever the opponents scores 1-7, you just know that they're going to catch up.  :lol

Hey, we've only done it twice this season! :P The other time being when we threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 against Spurs. That was bad, but last weekend was probably worse. :lol

I imagined the story to go more like this.

Hmm yeah, looks like you're getting spanked by either exchange rate or shipping. :lol

EDIT: The training tops are considerably more sensibly priced. Still a lot though. You could probably get a top from a previous season on ebay or something.

Don't follow it hard enough to gamble, not even an e-bet.  Wouldn't want this...

Follow La Liga and support Real Madrid :)
But if it has to be Premier League, support Arsenal. They play pretty football.
