Real shitty day for Everton. Could only muster a draw against a team that wasn't even in the EPL last year.

It looks like "Super Mario" Balotelli will leave AC Milan for Liverpool. Big signing for them getting one of the biggest and most recognizable stars in the game.

There's replay on the NBCSN website. After a match is done, it's there for a day or two. Not quite HD but good enough.

Now that my son is playing soccer and I'm coaching, and right on the heels of the World Cup, my interest level in the game has gone way back up.  I've been watching somes games and highlights from the EPL these first two weeks.

 

Looks like the marquee games for this week are Everton/Chelsea and Tottenham/Liverpool.

 


When my soccer nut friend got me into watching the EPL several years ago, he also "made" me pick a favorite team.  As much as I'd like to have somebody to root for, I couldn't really do it because it seemed so artificial.  (To get him off my back, I chose Middlesbrough :doh:)  I'd still like to have a team, but I think the only way for it to happen without actually having a home team will be for it to just happen almost without me realizing it after watching a team a few times.  Wonder who it's going to be?!?!  (The only thing I know for sure is that it won't be a team from Manchester ;))

Everton Chelsea!!! Whoo. I predict they take a 2-1 lead and give up a Eden Hazard stoppage time goal. You heard it here first.....I say Everton. a3_biggrin.gif. You could bandwagon, or pick a fun, decent team like Everton, Stoke, or Swansea. You kinda have to do some research, or else you'll end up with a awful team that gets relegated...(*Cough Cough Middlesborough)

Yeah, kinda makes games easy to watch in that you're never stressing out.  I'm just kind of always rooting for good play and whoever is down to score the next goal. :beer:

I'm just a total front-runner. I like Chelsea and Everton, but also Manchester City and Liverpool. I don't mind Arsenal either.

Anyone but Man United though. Can't stand them.

I am definitely the opposite when watching sport. When I'm watching as a neutral i always find myself rooting for the losing team, no idea why, just do! I don't often watch sports though where i am 100% unbiased on who wins.

 

In the EPL, i support Liverpool so never a full neutral as there is nearly always a result that would favor us. I never want Chelsea or a Man U to win though. The closest i come to a neutral spectator is when i get to catch the odd NBA game, unless Denver are playing i have no preferences. I've been to Denver a fair amount and the first NBA game i saw was with some Denver fans so I've become attached to them.

Haha, sorry! I got the wrong end of the stick so to speak. I took "whoever is down to score the next goal" to mean whoever to most likely to score next which i then inferred to be the winning team.  :-P Do you see where i got confused though?

LOL, whoops.  Yes I do see it now ... although it hadn't occurred to me when I wrote it.  Me and my dangling participles. And I gave @RonTheSavage crap for something similar just yesterday!! :doh:
