So, with the EPL kicking off in just a few short hours, a new thread sounds like a good place to start, one that can contain all the goings-on in the world leading up to the damp squib the World Cup will probably end up being.
Your weekend Premier League Fixtures are...
Chelsea v. Hull
Pompey v. Fulham
Wolves v. West Ham
Rovers v. City
Bolton v. Sunderland
Villa v. Wigan
Stoke v. Burnley
Everton v. Arsenal
MU v. Birmingham
Tottenham v. Liverpool
Not a particularly interesting weekend, outside of Everton v. Arsenal and Tottenham v. Liverpool, but pleh, first weekend. The Bundesliga's already underway, Serie A starts next weekend and La Liga (probably the most interesting title contest of them all) ends the month. The group stage of the CL starts in September.
All in all, yay. If anyone's interested, we can try and do Guardian Fantasy Football again this year, although I make no promises about improving on last year's horrific showing by Hudson Valley FC.
In the meantime, here's highligts of Poland v. Greece, Argentina v. Russia and Norwich beating up poor Yeovil.
