Man U is my team, I'm glad to see there on the rise. I can't stand it when Chelsea is in first...

I love watching international "football". The only "football" I've watched is the World Cup '06 and Euro Cup '08, but I thought it was great.

The only football I pay attention to often now is the Bundesliga, which is the German Soccer League. I'd have to say my favourite team is FC Bayern München. :p

I still kind of pay attention to the EPL, but I don't really have a team I follow.

You and me aren't gonna be very good friends then :xp:

Man U on the rise? Not a chance. It's a Chelsea year my friend, a Chelsea year. If only Ballack wasn't in the team...

Ballack is one of the most hated players in soccer, and i hate him more than anyone, but I can't stand the arrogance of Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernando Torres, it's obvious the best striker in the world is David Villa.

Villa is good, but not as good as C. Ronaldo. Lets see... Ronaldo scored a whopping '42' goals last season.

I'll admit he isn't bad but he's still completely full of himself and arrogant, same as Rooney, in fact he's worse.

Yep, he's a good player, but he's far too arrogant for his own good, that's what I love about Villa, he's awesome, he knows he's awesome, but never is he arrogant, cocky etc. all class

He is arrogant, but seriously... Who wouldn't want him? It's like your guaranteed 1 goal at least per game.

But I see where your coming from. He's top on the butt-hole list.

After Ballack, and just narrowly before F. Torres

I don't really see Rooney that way. However, I do not like Dimitar Berbatov being on the Man U squad. He's just as bad as Ballack.

Not quite, at least, IMO.

I'd be rapped if Chelsea got rid of Ballack, we don't even need him.

You actually do.
Every team needs an a**hole. Some games can only be won with them. If Ballack insures an opposing team-member is sent of in the Champions League final I wont hear you complain.

Look at all the great clubs: Ac Milan- Gattuso. Manchester United - Ferdinand. Ajax - (used to be) Davids. Bayern Münich - Van Bommel.

Anyways, voted Liverpool. Although Arsenal is a personal favourite, Liverpools fans and stadium are just...jawdropping.

Good point, but Ashley Cole can fill in for that :p

Ferdinand is a bit of an a**hole, I wouldn't say Berbatov is though...

That still doesn't explain why you think he's an a**hole.
And I don't think it's because he left that they're crap, what about Keane? He's a gun player also, and Spurs got Modric and Corluka, who's rated as one of the best defenders in the EPL, and they also got Pavluyichenko (sp?) who's a gun Russian, they would've been crap this year with Berbatov or without, probably not as bad, but still in relegation territory.

I'm surprised Stoke is doing so good. So I heard Chelsea won 4-0 today, who against.

5-0 against Middlesborough.

I'm upset though because in my EPL Dream Team, I had Lampard as my captain, but I changed it to Defoe because he's been dominating recently, and then this week Defoe does crap while Lampard destroys the game.

And I;m more surprised Hull is doing so good, top 4 I think.

Surprise effect of a recently promoted club.

Watch next year, they won't be so good. :) simple fact.

Teams like that play opportunistic, since they have nothing to loose. It's not easy to play against such a team. And you don't know the players and their skills.

Liverpool's snagged first, and who would of thought that Hull would be tied with Chelsea for 2nd with 20pt each.

Curse you Liverpool, the first time we've lost at home for 86 matches, and also the first time Liverpool's scored against us in a while.

First loss of the season, but if you look at both our seasons so far, we've had the much easier route, Liverpool's had a couple lucky escapes.

I have to give it to'em. Liverpool is out doing every other team in the EPL this year. With that being said, last year, it wasn't a Chelsea/Man United show the entire way through the season. I think that Arsenal started out at First, but soon lost it to Liverpool. I don't really know, but still, There doing great this year.


(Curse you Torres!)

Tottenham is coming back, 7 points in the last 3 games, out of a possible of 9
