    Chelsea will beat Bolton
    Newcastle and the Wolves will be hard fought, but the Wolves will lose by one
    QPR will beat a Fulham big, unfortunately
    I hate Man City
    Blackpool will beat Bristol :)

    just a few matches I will be keeping an eye on today.

    this thread is bound to pick up when Euro 2012 kicks off.


    i don't support any one club, but i'm a huge fan of any minnows in the Premiership. i'm also loving Inter's free fall in the chase for the Scudetto.

    its a shame that a great derby match is postponed for a stupid Carling Cup match.

    I support LFC, about the only club I root against at all costs is Man City. I love much of the EPL. I don't care much for Chelsea, but I actually will watch MUFC because Rooney is awesome, don't care what haters say.

    I follow Serie A pretty regular also, been a fan of Totti for years and probably consider Roma my team in italy.

    MLS is a good league that will become great.

    I watch other teams that get american imports or good names I enjoy.

    Soux - charlie davies
    Villareal - guiseppe rossi

    Trying to get into bundesliga now.

    Fulham with the 1-0 shutdown, too bad Clint D had a soft match. :(

    West Brom skunked Sunderland 4-0 and Pete Odemwingie had a pair.

    Newcastle split with the Wolves 2-2

    And finally Wigan and A.V. had a zero/zero tie.

    Started watching the sport about 10 years ago, rather late in life. By no means an expert but picked up bits and pieces through the years and now understand the strategy somewhat. Finally chose an EPL team to follow more than others about 6 years ago and went with Tottenham because I liked their style of play and they were an underdog. Been pleasantly surprised by their rise in the league.

    Really enjoy the random La Liga game and love listening to Ray Hudson's color on them. Like everyone else in the world I'm amazed at the game of Messi and jumped on the Barcelona bandwagon. Still trying to wrap my arms around the Italian league but can't say I've found a team I really like. Seems to be a distinctly different style of play there that I'm not educated enough to grasp.

    The coolest thing to me is how passionate the supporters are. My favorite though is the international play

    I would have to say Tottenham is a team I really enjoy also. Gareth Bale has the raw talent to be as great as Rooney someday.

    I have not got into La Liga as much as Serie A or Bundesliga.

    I follow Roma in Italy because when I started following the league Totti was just breaking out.

    Messi has been phenomenal league play but has not shinned in the World Cup as expected yet.

    Fun first half Arsenal - Spurs. Don't know if purists would approve of it. Good game to lure casual fans with though.

    eF THE PURISTS. oops, sorry for the caps.

    I would rather see my team win 6-5 then win 1-0 or 2-0 in a defensive game.

    that goal you could see coming as soon as he crossed midfield, no one was stopping the push :(

    Hotspurs will get it back though.
