Seriously, the EPL is going to be so strong by the end of the year, it will be far-and-away the most superior in Europe. AINEC.

Man, Abramovich is one dodgy ******* (if it is him behind it). The whole thing must be completely illegal.

Yeah, that is why english teams completely dominate the CL.

Ha, point taken. The prem could be the strongest league by the end of the year but I seriously doubt it. The way english teams play atm just doesnt suit the styles of Italian, Spanish..and maybe German teams, to their disadvantage. I doubt it will change in the near future.

Demarcus Beasley to Man City. It will be interesting to see how he does in England. I think with his pace he could be a hit as long as he can handle the physical play.

Good manager for him too... because from what little I've seen of him, he seems to drift in and out of matches. Psycho will make sure he's committed.

Yeah, I like that guy. He get's more out of his players than a lot of others could.

So, can we talk about how digusting Crouch has been for England lately?Hopefully, it'll translate to more success at the club level. He's my only hope until the rest of my forwards on my fantasy team get off suspension (Rooney) or become uninjured (Kitson).

Big day today: Merseyside Derby. Should be a good test for both teams.Edit: Kudos to Everton. And as much as he is loved, I don't understand starting Fowler. The one good thing about starting him was that the announcers brought up the 2000 derby at Goodison, easily the most entertaining EPL match I've ever seen. 3-2 final (I think), Igor Biscan sent off, Fowler missed a penalty, Babbel scored after running about 80 yards after a penalty clearance and the winning goal scored in injury time on a 40-yard free kigk by Gary McAlliaster (which probably should've been a 50 yard free kick). (Now former) Referree Jeff Winter lost complete control in the most emotionally-charged match possible.

Well it looks like Portsmouth, ManU, and Everton are the only 3 teams that decided to be consistent this season. We don't even really have consistent losers at this point. My weekly prediction pool is currently the bane of my existence.

Arsenal puls out the upset late to beat ManU 1-0. Pretty good game. Just glad to see a goal since yesterdays games both finished 0-0. :)damn, Fullham tied. they would have moved up to 4th with a win.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

Two games in a row (C-League midweek and today) Gerrard has missed on solid chances to score his trademark big goal.

Maybe Rooney should've stayed on the bench. 0-1 at Old Trafford to winless Arsenal? Goo.

So..I wasn't really ready to accept that Portsmouth has a chance to make Europe if they keep playing the ball they're playing now. The teams they've beat are meh. Until I looked at the stats and realized, they haven't allowed a goal. Not one. In 5 games. Sick for the EPL. Sick.
