The English Premier League is back

The EPL 2007-2008 season is now almost 2 weeks old, and surprisingly it is not that predictable so far.

For starters, last season's champion M*n U*d is now at position 16th in the league table after 3 matches instead of being in the top four. It is not everyday we can technically say that M*n U*d is trying to avoid the relegation zone.

Chelsea's cylinders are still sputtering due to injury problems and was lucky not to lose to Liverpool on Sunday no thanks to the match referee Rob Styles who committed daylight Rob-bery by awarding Chelsea a penalty resulting in a 1-1 drawn match.

Arsenal? Their goalkeeper has been inflicted with the dreaded butter fingers disease lately.

The breath of fresh air must have been Manchester City, winning 3 matches out of 3 so far and is topping the table. At least Sven G. Ericsson got something right finally, unlike during his job as England's manager.

Newcastle under Sam Allardyce is doing better while Bolton is having a terrible time in this new season after Big Sam left them. (Bolton chairman's note to self : Never bad mouth your ex-manager.) Newcastle slammed four goals past Bolton's goalkeeper on opening day.

As for the rest, nothing remarkable so far, but as the season progresses, things will change.

As for my team Liverpool, thanks to some very good buys in the transfer market which beefed up the team's striking power, this season may just be the season Liverpool will win the EPL title after 17 years.

This season is different. The team looked confident, decisive and took no prisoners in their 2 matches so far, and I foresee this to be the trend throughout the season.

Liverpool to win the 2007-2008 EPL title. A man can dream, can't he?

Yabah Wombat! Liverpool should have won that match! Liverpool control all the way. I was watching with my 3 yrs old son.. and thought they gonna hold on probably scored some more. I never like that referee... blardy one.
I hate it when losing(i considered it lost) to penalty. damn it.

Yes Liverpool gonna win big this season. Oh yes...

Nevermind. Tonight Reds get to play away at Sunderland. They will release the geram by whacking them 5-0.

Wow! Arsenal got killed last night! Anybody see it?
The fans must have been furious! 5 – 1, I mean Tottenham played very well but Arsenal fielded barely any first team players, what were they thinking!? The Fans have every right to be annoyed! When you travel to see your team play you expect them to at least try! Whoever did a little football spread betting on Arsenal losing will be laughing all the way to work this morning! Maybe I Should start spread betting and see if I can win a few bets! I want to laugh on the way to work!
