Similar to the football league thread thought we'd have one for EPL and all the leagues below.

Chelsea down 3-0 to Burnley.

Providing Man U don't win by 3 and score 4 goals then they are top of the league.

It's pretty hard to fuck up a traditionally striped jersey, but my word Southampton have done a good job.  :sick:

It's like a bizzaro Ajax kit.

Bilic.

I think Mike Ashley loves the idea of Newcastle fans asking for his head.
Forever Sydney.

Well ... that was interesting.  I am visiting London at the moment and travelled out to Wembley stadium for Spurs first home game at their temporary home.  Spurs v Chelsea.  It was also my first time at an EPL game.  A crowd of over 70,000 and good (but not great) atmosphere. Facilities (food etc) NOT as good as at SFC home games.

Members of my family support Spurs and so that was who I was backing.  It was interesting that despite the many millions spent on that team, the groans and complaints were as numerous in that crowd as in ours.  And the complaints were deserved - poor first touches; turning over possession cheaply; poor attempts at goal; etc.

And then ... trying to get away from the ground ... a nightmare.

So, for this non-expert, I would not really rate the experience any better than that back in Sydney.  Maybe it was the lack of real passion I felt for either team or that it was just a game early in the season but I look forward instead to the start of our campaign.
