    Default 2014/15 Football (aka soccer)

    On the eve of the new Premier League season we have a new thread!

    A place to talk about all things football related - all leagues, all countries, all the diving and bad calls.

    That, on the whole, and by and large, if a man lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, in the end, more or less, turn out all right.

    Can't wait until tomorrow when we play Southampton, can't wait until my first trip to Anfield since May. Come on you Reds!

    In the meantime

    Come on Swansea, Leicester and Crystal Palace. Since they're playing Man Utd, Everton and Arsenal respectively today.

    I love watching United Lose. Swansea is kinda irrelevant to me. Midfield and Defense still needs work for Man United.

    You could have waited till the last thread hit 5,000 posts!

    All kidding aside, it is a glorious thing to wake up to seeing that Arsenal had won and United had lost.

    My only regret is that I slept through it due to my first heavy bout of insomnia that I had experienced in months on end.

    Nonetheless, I am very pleased with these results.

    The only two things that worry me is that it might convince Wenger that we're fine as we are and he won't splash on a defensive mid, and this might also be the catalyst that inspires Ed Woodward to spend more. I heard United might be closing in on Benatia now, and as someone who has watched him in Serie A, the prospect of someone that talented playing for United is frightening indeed.

    Also happy my fantasy squad is holding 3rd place

    Honestly Its one of the things that movie back to the east coast makes me happy about. I will no longer have to wakeup super early on the weekend to catch games. I can get up at 10 and still watch the games just fine.

    Ah Feels Good. Anyway u know I dont think Sterling gets enough hype compared to Shaw or Barkely and he is an English player who actually deserves it which is rare.
