Premier League Tidbits

I’ve seen some horrible green-screen effects before, but the action footage from the trailer for Goal 3 (see above) has got to be some of the cheesiest I’ve ever seen in my life. Let’s hope the movie is better than the trailer, but I doubt it.

  • For the second summer in a row, the Premier League explains how the process of scheduling the fixtures for the upcoming Premier League season happens. There’s a method to the madness.
  • Out of the 20 clubs in the Premier League, there is only one who continually is on the leading edge of embracing technology to better serve its supporters. That club is Everton FC. The Merseyside club just released more information about the Everton iPhone apps.
  • You may have heard of the “Showdown in Chinatown” last year when Henry, Fowler, Kalou and others teamed up with NBA stars to play a charity match in NYC’s Chinatown. This year, the list of football stars is being closely guarded but its meant to be an insane roster of stars.
    Football for Good is also offering an all-expenses-paid trip for two to New York to attend the event on June 24th. All you have to do is make a $5 donation to Steve’s Football for Good charity which will be setting up football academies in war-torn parts of Africa. The competition ends June 17th.

    Here are the list of URLs to get more information about the event:
