Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 2: Open Thread

There are three important matches on today. We travel to Carrow Road in East Anglia to watch Norwich at home against Stoke City at 8:30am ET, which is followed by Wolves against Fulham at 9am ET and then, last but not least, Bolton against Manchester City at 11am ET.

Just like yesterday, we have two evenly matched games — Norwich against Stoke, and Wolves versus Fulham. And then the last game of the game, on paper at least, looks rather lopsided at the Reebok Stadium.

As always, feel free to share your comments, rants, raves, observations or questions in the comments section below.

  1. Really interested in the Stoke match up as they are needing to adapt to Europe and Domestic play. Unfortunately, the game can’t be watched on, at least not in my home. I can watch something on Demand, but I can’t watch the game. I can “view” it on the iPhone app, and no, that isn’t good enough.

  2. Same here Yespage. I tried un-checking hardware acceleration as they suggest but the spinning graphic still continues after I refresh.Tried chrome, firefox and ie9. This happened to me yesterday too. I guess I’ll have to watch the Wolves vs Fulham game.

  3. I haven’t had any luck with this weekend. I keep getting the spinning circle for every match I try. I tried all their troubleshooting steps, and nothing. Is anyone able to watch anything?

    I’m very disappointed in the product this year. It was much better last year before they added a bunch of useless bells & whistles, removed content, and jacked the price up $5 per month.

    1. I cant get in either. two days in a row its been like this… I broke out the ipad and I can get the game on there. tried 2 different computers same result

        1. Even on there ipad app they have the score as west ham 3 Leeds 1 . when all the other services say its 2-1?
          well at least today its showing the score of the right game i guess i should be thankful

  4. Got this response from The “fix” didn’t work for me.

      1. I unsubscribed my “Free Preview.” The Tums were costing too much. I’m already bald or else I would be pulling my hair out. I need to learn to relax.

  5. “The ball never lies!!”

    PK save!! Bad penalty call, but the ball took it into its own hands and corrected the error!!

    I learned this phrase in Argentina. I’m sure others place have the same or similar sayings…

  6. “Watching” the iPhone stream of Stoke v Norwich. Norwich got seriously robbed with that penalty reward and a red card. Based on what I could see Walters fell on his own. There was justice with the penalty save though.

    1. Walters got a toe on the ball and was taken down. The foul was outside the box so it shouldn’t have been a PK but I agree with the red card.. He was the last man and it was a one on one.. the intent was to take him down prior to it being a penalty, that’s what a red card is for.

  7. Why is Andy Johnson in the premier league? If my choices for striker were Robbie Findlay, Brian Ching, and Andy Johnson.. Johnson would finish third.

    1. I was worried the Week 1 performance may have been a fluke but they were even better today than last week, which is saying something. Fantastic stuff to see. Much improved over last year. I won’t hold my hopes too high or make any bold predictions (just yet), but if this keeps up it will be a very exciting season.

  8. all the games are on EPL site every matchday although if ur a man city fan like myself be prepared for the ridiculous amount of man utd fans that watch Man city (and heckle) week in and week out , regardless of whether utd are actually playing a shirt guys its already known that most of u are glory hunters

  9. ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn’t it? You wake up in the morning, you’ve got to read all the Sunday papers, the kids are running round, you’ve got to mow the lawn, wash the car, and you think “Sunday, bloody Sunday!”.

      1. Norwich are back in the premier league too. If only Alan Partridge could commentate their games, with the occasional side-conversation about the pedestrianisation of the city centre, and exclamations of “back of the net” whenever a goal is scored.
