Ideas Sought For 2008/2009 Premier League Guide

rothmans-football-yearbook.gifAfter the successful launch of the free EPL travel guidebook, we’re busy at work on the next eBook — but we need your help.

Champions League Talk chief Lonnie Smetana and I are working on a guide to the 20 teams in the 2008/2009 Premier League season. Our goal is to create a useful reference guide that can be used by soccer fans throughout the entire season. I’m envisioning that the guide will be packed with statistics. Not to the extent of the Sky Sports Yearbook or old Rothman’s guides. But something that is an easy reference to pull up and nothing too overwhelming.

Here’s what we have so far for each club:

  • Position the club finished last season,
  • Formed,
  • Stadium, including capacity,
  • Nickname,
  • Shirt colors,
  • Formation,
  • Web site,
  • Anticipated starting eleven,
  • Squad,
  • Manager,
  • Points total for previous 5 seasons,
  • Transfers in,
  • Transfers out,
  • Strengths,
  • Weaknesses,
  • Most valuable player,
  • Breakout player,
  • Fixtures,
  • Predicted finish.

What are we missing? What would make it a guide that you would routinely open?
