For all you football haters, I'll start a paint-drying thread for you in a moment =)
Anyway, we kick off with Spurs vs City later today, and it looks like we are in for an interesting season.
We have a new team in the Champions League, a new threat to the title in the shape of Man City, and a decent sized handful of exciting foreign players joining us.
As a neutral, I can't help but feel it will be the red half of Manchester that takes it this year, they were very close last season, even with all those defensive issues, and Chelsea have sold some good players.
Mario Balotelli will be one to watch this season as well.
I'm having a half-crown on my team Everton at 150 to 1 to win the Premiership title. (I can hear Brumas laughing from here). I think Blackpool is about 2000 to 1. That might be worth a shot to a gambler. Come to think of it, that is probably a better bet than mine on Everton. (In case anybody doesn't know what a half-crown is/was we used to get eight of them to a pound (Sterling).
thumpt 6-0 by chelsea A good start for blackpool with 3 points on the board. I think they will find it harder over more difficult opposition. As for spurs / man city. Harry Rednaps lads were all over city, like a rash. They should have killed the game off at half time.
Liverpool against the gunners this afternoon. I don't think liverpool will get the edge over wengers boys, though I would like the reds to get off to a good start.
