    Premier League: 2013-14

    There are more international folks around now, and with NBC Sports stealing the English Football contract from Fox Soccer Channel, there might be more exposure to the game. Anyone excited or interested in what will or might happen?

    And the World Cup qualifiers is this year...

    Indeed. I know I am.

    One thing worth noting in relation to this, is that the owner of the Red Sox, John Henry also owns Liverpool and an 80% share in NESN, the New England Sports Network. He uses his ownership leverage to have the LFC games shown on NESN. Although the game showings are delayed and shown on Tuesday nights, it's pretty damn awesome in my book.

    I must admit that I've always had a soft spot for Football, both the Premier League and international... but had a hard time choosing who to support. A drought of coverage didn't help this either. Obliquely, the Red Sox showed me the way.

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?

    I , for my sins in a previous life , follow/support the "Mighty Bairns" (Falkirk F.C.) . We are currently in the second tier of the Scottish leagues and hopefully will earn promotion at the end of the season to the top flight. Followed them since I was a wee bairn , about 7 or 8 years old till now, fifty years later. Through thick and thin they are "My club" and will always have a special place in my heart. Anywhooo folks better go now as our game is ready to kick off so time for a few beers and a swear at the referee

    I'm a wolves fan (Wolverhampton wanderers for our colonial cousins) currently languishing in league one following a spectacular fall from the premier league. We'll be back in a few years but if you want to adopt a team... COME ON YOU WOLVES!!!

    He should never have been sacked... A great lesson in being careful what you wish for!

    While I am a HUGE Arsenal fan (I checked out Arsenal's history and it relates to my older field in the military), I am a follower of the Wolves as well. I have more Wolves jerseys and scarves than any other team. I have been known to drop hundred quid on their merchandise and have it shipped here in Texas; of course, I am always on the lookout for their sales. So, my family does get decked out in Wolverhampton gear every so often.

    I fully expect them to pop back up into Championship League this season.

    I agree. I think Mick McCarthy was the glue that the wolves needed. The owners never should have let him go. At all.

    You've made my Christmas! http://www.expressandstar.com/sport/wolverhampton-wanderers-fc/ is the link for the most up to date wolves news. As for arsenal... If they can get another striker then they'll be in with a decent chance of winning the prem. it's nice to see them and Liverpool going well but you can't really look beyond Man City at the moment. Unfortunately...
