Manchester teams looks to continue strong start

26 Aug

Both Manchester United and Manchester City have started the season in dominating fashion and will look to continue that form Sunday against Arsenal and Tottenham, respectively, teams both fighting for their first wins of the season.  Meanwhile, Liverpool aims to improve on last season as they take on Bolton, where they only won once in the first eight games of the year (yikes).  Definitely a solid slate of games this weekend, especially considering the top four clash between Aston Villa and Wolves kicks off action for game week three.

Premier League predictions

12 Aug

The 2011-12 Premier League season starts tomorrow and I can’t wait. I am so ridiculously excited.  My prediction?  This is one of the closest title races in a long time and it comes down to the last couple weeks. As much as I hate to say it, I think that Manchester United will win its second straight title as Chicharito takes the league by storm. I peg Man City as runners-up as the team builds on its success last year. Even without Tevez, Sergio Aguero is more than capable of picking up the slack. Liverpool makes a triumphant return to the top four after two years out and Chelsea rounds out the top four.

Champion: Manchester United
Top Four: Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea
Relegated: Swansea, West Brom, Wolves
Golden Boot: Chicharito, MU

The Prem is back!

10 Sep

The Premier League is back in action tomorrow after two excruciating weeks of international breakage. Huzzah!  The Everton/Manchester United game should be a good one, especially as the recent allegations against Wayne Rooney should lead to some entertaining chants. (One I heard about earlier was ‘No Woman, No Kai’. Inappropriate? Yes. Funny? Yes.)  Anyways, Tottenham will be missing Jermaine Defoe for up to six weeks and that’s bound to have an impact on the team.  Spurs plays at West Brom tomorrow.

Premier League TV Schedule – August 28-29

27 Aug

Week three of the young Premier League season kicks off tomorrow with Blackburn hosting Arsenal.  There’s really not any super intriguing games this weekend.  I guess you could say that Aston Villa/Everton SHOULD be the pick of the lot.  But I also said that last week about Blackpool/Arsenal and look how that turned out (6-0 Gunners in case you missed it). It’s also going to be a chance for Liverpool to pick up its first win of the season (and they should have a very good chance against West Brom).

Anyways, without further ado, here’s the TV schedule for the weekend.

Saturday, August 28
Blackburn vs. Arsenal – 7:45 a.m. ET/ESPN2 (Live)
Blackpool vs. Fulham
Chelsea vs. Stoke – 9:55 a.m. ET/Fox Soccer Plus (Live)
Tottenham vs. Wigan – 10 a.m. ET/Fox Soccer (Live)
Wolves vs. Newcastle – 6 p.m. ET/Fox Soccer Plus (Delayed)
Manchester United vs. West Ham – 12:30 p.m. ET/Fox Soccer (Live)

Sunday, August 29
Bolton vs. Birmingham – 8:25 a.m. ET/Fox Soccer Plus (Live)
Liverpool vs. West Brom
Sunderland vs. Manchester City
Aston Villa vs. Everton – 11 a.m. ET/Fox Soccer (Live)

Premier League Schedule – August 21-23

20 Aug

No one thought that Saturday’s best game could be one involving a a newly promoted team against a perennial top four team.  However, that very well could be the case as surprise Blackpool takes on Arsenal.  Blackpool earned a shock 4-0 win over Wigan in a dream season opener.  I’m sure the Seasiders will be full of confidence, but beating Wigan is a lot different than trying to knock off Arsenal at the Emirates.

There’s not a lot of mouth-watering clashes this weekend, but Monday’s match between Manchester City and Liverpool could be a good one.  Both teams had disappointing draws on opening weekend and will be looking for a big three points.  Liverpool will be without new signing Joe Cole due to red card suspension, although Fernando Torres is getting closer and closer to full fitness, which can only be beneficial for the squad.  City’s latest signing, Mario Balotelli, scored the winner in a Europa League tie Thursday.

The beating of the week could easily go to Wigan again as they face a rampant Chelsea offense that put six past West Brom last weekend. This could be a very long season for Wigan.

Premier League Schedule – December 26-27

24 Dec

The best game of the weekend is Aston Villa at Arsenal on Sunday. Each team has 35 points and a victory could vault the winner into second place, depending on the result of the Manchester United game. Liverpool desperately need a win to get their season back on track (I feel like I’ve written that sentence a lot this year.)

Premier League Schedule Dec. 19-21

18 Dec

Manchester United looks to go joint top with a win over Fulham on Saturday, while Chelsea looks to keep a three-point gap from their closest challenger against West Ham Sunday.  Meanwhile, Liverpool needs a win over bottom-dwelling Portsmouth if they want to keep any hope of a top four finish alive.

I will add the US broadcasts for Fox Soccer games later tonight as the new Foxsoccer.com website doesn’t seem to want to give me that information at the moment.
