You are looking live at Anfield!
OT: Barclays Premier League Day 1
You will never walk alone
having just started watching the BPL a couple years ago, I had no reason to pick any team as mine, other than the teams with Americans.
so other than Everton, Villa, Stoke and now Sunderland, the one team that has stood out in terms of style of play, pure joy of the fans, a small team conquering the big beasts... I find I really like rooting for Swansea.
Pull it together
Apparently the OP just starting following the EPL this year.
Who's arsenal playing? I miight look up a stream
They play at 10 AM on NBC SPorts Net against some team I can't remember. And I'm an Arsenal fan
Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to be on the reserve list, but Geoff Cameron did start and should be getting great experience.
Shea picked up some kind of knock from a bad tackle in Stoke's preseason US tour. Hughes was pissed.
Today also features pulsating Scottish Premier League action. Celtic-Aberdeen!
West Ham here. Glorious day.
Have been following since the 90s, watched Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shock Bayern Munich in stoppage time @ Camp Nou.
Awesome. Those were epic battles between Arsenal and Unied.
Are you also a fan of the Yankees and Lakers? Or are the Packers more your style?
have been a fan for over 15 years
same could be said of Michigan, ohio, bama, etc fans
No Bundesliga makes me sad
Agree that the Bundesliga is a better league nowadays. The EPL, quite honestly, has been pretty lame since it became a toybox for oil oligarchs.
Always nice to start with 3 points
Goodness me what a thrilling finish at Anfield. Liverpool barely hold on to get the 3 points. Strong goaltending from both goalies today but Liverpool barely survives
Can't wait to see how Jozy performs for Sunderland against Fulham, I would love to see another American do well in the Prem!
This Premier League coverage by NBC is amazing. So glad to have every game broadcast. This should really help with soccer's popularity here
Does anyone know what time and channel that Manchester City has their match. Do they even play today ?
No. They play Monday afternoon on NBC Sports Network.
Arsenal starting very brightly. Although they finished fourth last season they probably had the best finish to the season. Look for them to start well.
1-3. Pressure will be on Arsene to drop 50 mil # on Suarez now
What does 50mil buy you these days -- about 3-4 good bites during te run of play? Is sulking off the pitch included in that price?
Not a fan of Suarez, personally. Besides the biting there is also the racial epithet incident with Patrice Evra. However, can't deny his finishing ability. Without the bagage, he would be worth more than 50 mil.
I tried a few times to get into EPL by arbitrarily choosing a team, but could never make it stick. Then I met my wife, who is from Nottingham, England. Nottingham Forest has a cool history, and now I have tangible ties to a team.
The only problem is that they are in the league championship, formerly known as First Division. Anyone know how I can watch their games, apart from getting beIN Sport for $10 a month and just catching a handful?

gracias.....top of the league
broadcasting and doing the halftime show. One reason I love watching the EPL is because of it's sheer Britishness.
which is why FoxSports decision to use Gus Johnson is just an incredible waste of his talent.
However I am sad ESPN no longer has a game of the week, Ian Darke and Steve McMananman were terrific together.
also pleased NBC sports is picking up the premier league review show, another british production highlighting the weeks games which is terrific.
Glory Glory Man United!! Championship Season #21 starts now!
(Yes, my PL team was picked, in part, because they call themselves the Blues!)
1-0 United. RvP with a crazy volley in the box.
2-0. Valencia, sweet centering pass to Walbeck for the tap-in.
Swansea aren't out of it though. Utd's central midfield looks soft, especially with 3 midfielders on a yellow card
United have needed another central midfielder besides Carrick for several years now.
Giggs is good for a half. Anderson,Cleverly haven't shown the consistency. Doubtful that Fabregas leaves Barca. Modric may be available especially if Real want to give Isco more minutes as a creative midfielder. Fellaini would be a good central defending midfielder next to Carrick, allowing for Kagawa or Rooney to play as an attacking midfielder behind RvP.
True arsenal fan ixcuincle went to sleep at halftime with it being 1-1. Imagine my surprise when I woke up and found out Aston Villa won 3-1.
That should be it. RvP, right outside the box, into the top left corner. Brace on the opener for the champs.
Pure class from RvP.
Too bad he's such a jerk.
Pretty absurd penalty and red card decisions against Arsenal, but yikes a good first 15 minutes and then nothing else. Arsene has to buy someone now, right? If only because people will start calling for his job soon.
PS are pro sports allowed here during on-season?
As a Liverpool fan I was rooting for Villa, but Arsenal was very unlucky. If soccer had replay the penalty would have been overturned, Koscielny would not have been sent off later, and it probably would have ended 1-1.
was Aston Villa able to hang on to Benteke this off-season?
It's the freaking Premier League. No need to advertise. When the Big House gets sponsor are you going to start calling it the 'Meijer's Big House' every time you refer to it?
greedily wanted more, but happy to start off the campaign with an away point.
Wolves fan obviously. But still watch the Prem quite a bit. Hoping to be back there within a few years :/
