Opening Day Surprises in English Premiership

fa premier league Opening Day Surprises in English Premiership

I’m glad I’m not a betting man. Otherwise, I would have lost some serious money today. Match by match, I expected Liverpool to cruise to victory against Sheffield United. I thought Arsenal would have convincingly defeated Villa. I expected Newcastle and Wigan to draw, and was convinced that Spurs would get an important away win against Bolton. The list goes on and on. Other than West Ham against Charlton, and Everton versus Watford, I was surprised at the results. What do you think this says about the Premiership? Was this purely a blip for the major teams, or did the results not accurately represent the play on the field? What was your opinion of the Fox Soccer Channel and Setanta coverage? What were today’s highpoints and lowpoints? Click on the comments link below and let us know.
