I'm not liking Chelsea's defense. They need to get a lot better.

I wonder why I haven't seen many (actually I can't think of any) Spurs fans around Columbia? I go to Cock N Bull almost every weekend for the BPL and I saw a tiny table of Spurs fans but of course you have your Arsenal crowd (Cock N Bull is now their viewing party bar - Official Columbia Gunners bar and I believe they are on arsenal official website). With the similarities I would think more new fans to the BPL would be Spurs fans.

Chelsea are going to be tough to beat.. Fabregas was instrumental in pulling the strings today. Guy is just insanely talented. My prediction was Arsenal to win the league but after today I have to give my nod to Chelsea.

That's an area that they may have to sacrifice some in order to attack more. The defense was amazing last year, but they parked the bus a lot more than you would expect from a Champions League team. I wouldn't worry too much though, the talent is there.

This! Unless you grew up a Man U fan picking them now is unforgivable...its as simple as that. If you do you have to be ready for constant attack on your character and obvious lack of knowledge related to the game...I'm only sort of kidding.

Not that I didn't enjoy the struggles ManU faced last season, but it did take a little of the fire out of the Manchester-Merseyside derbies last year.
I agree with that. I do, however, believe we need some more quality players. The lineup that United is trotting out there right now isn't going to scare anyone. Historically, LvG has started slow in his first year (I believe this is what they said on NBCSN). Could be wrong.

Looks like Tottenham is putting in a big bid for Schneiderlin .. Makes sense I reckon with Southampton's old manager now there .. However, it looks like we are going to try and sign Alvaro Gonzalez.

So who's the South Carolina of England? I've been watching the Premier League for years I'm just bad at making these comparisons, and I'm pretty sure other people have already made them so I'll just ask.

If I had to guess I would say Southampton. They produce good players but haven't really had the entire team to start competing until recently. Had a few good years back in the days.

Don't listen to Nureye. Just watch the teams and maybe get to know fans through the team's respective subreddits. Nureye just has it out for Spurs. I'm a Tottenham fan and really like the fans and club history (and historical style of okay). Plus, I really like the current players and manager.

So now with all the Balotelli rumors to Liverpool, what does everyone think about this? I know they are looking for a striking partner with Sturridge but are they really prepared for Balotelli? If this move is made, doesn't look like Lambert is going to get much time.

Personally I think it's a great move considering the options available. Can't go into the season with only Sturridge, Borini, and Lambert as the only out and out strikers. I don't really see this as cutting into Lambert's playing time too much. He was always going to be used as a plan B for games where teams park the bus and a tactic change is needed in the second half, that will still hold true. Hopefully he doesn't become too much of a distraction, but Liverpool has had plenty of practice dealing with headcases with Suarez.

I wish I owned a Liverpool strip club if Balotelli is coming to town. Balotelli with a kinda rigid and authoritative coach like Brendan Rodgers doesn't seem like a good match but we'll see.

I've been a Man Utd "fan" for a little while but I honestly feel like a huge douche for being one and not afraid to admit it. I'd like to actually watch this season and assess the teams and pick one I like that isn't a Big 5 team. Want to grow with a team through the ups and downs. And no I don't care that other people are fans of Big 5 teams but I don't want to be.

Sell the striker most likely to earn a ban to buy the striker second most likely to earn a ban.

Bold strategy.
