There are lots of exciting developments happening behind-the-scenes at EPL Talk. As soon as the deals and arrangements are confirmed, I’ll be sure to let you know. But it’ll definitely be good news for EPL-mad fans such as yourself.
In the meantime, I want to remind you to mark your calendar for this Saturday (and every Saturday) at 7:30am ET onwards. I’ll be hosting a live online chat via webcam from the homepage of the EPL Talk web site (check out the “Stickam” player near the center of the page).
Why chat online you may ask? Well for many of us who are watching the matches at home, you can chat with fellow fans from around the world as the action unfolds on TV. Last Saturday we had football fans chatting from Jamaica, Japan and all across America. For example, last weekend we had a great discussion about memories of terracing at football matches and away fans being stuck in “pens,” segregated areas fenced in to avoid hooligans fighting. Especially interesting was the Tokyo Toffeeman’s vivid flashbacks to Everton’s Goodison Park and how it differed in the late 70s compared to now.
(Plus you can get a glimpse of EPL Talk headquarters and see, if you’re lucky, the two Brazilian cleaning girls who made a surprise visit a fortnight ago; ahem pictured above).
If you’re front of a computer, we hope to see you online this Saturday! The early kick-off is Liverpool against Spurs at 7:30am ET, followed by Chelsea and Fulham, and Arsenal versus Sheffield United at 10am ET, then the Reading against Man United match at Noon ET, and Aston Villa versus Charlton at 2:15pm ET.
