As one of the owners/shareholders of Manchester United, I expect the utmost respect throughout this entire season. You have been warned.

Re: Community Shield. Torres looked good, Hazard tried to do too much, our midfield esp Mikel was crap, Cech could have done better, I hate John Terry.

This six episode series was originally supposed to be called "Our Liverpool: Never Walk Alone", but it has been retitled. I believe they plan on other "Being:......" series w/ other clubs.

If they're serious about repeating, I think City runs away from the pack this year. Unfortunately.

Last season was an anomaly on the health front. A Rooney-esque salary is crazy money for a guy w/ that history.

I should have stated, the only two non-options are City and Chelsea. Sorry. I am also not a fan at all of United.

What is wrong with choosing Arsenal or Liverpool? The Spurs? Or is it bad form to pick one of the upper table clubs?

Not a damn thing is wrong w/ Liverpool, aside from the fact that they are a wee bit cursed at the moment.

Hope they put a halt to the skid of the last three years (i.e. the Curse of Alonso).

Swansea. They play lovely football, and, as a Barca fan you'll appreciate their play.

Arsenal
Chelsea
Liverpool
Manchester United

Re: Barclays Premier League 2012-2013 season

I'm more excited about Kagawa than van Persie. Apparently, he was awesome in pre-season games.
Also looks like Man U are close to signing young Chilean star Angelo Henriquez.

I think I only saw them once last season, so I will definitely check them out more. Thanks for the suggestion.


And it looks like I won't have to worry about Barca not playing this weekend.
