Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 10: Open Thread
The Premier League fixture computer hasn’t been kind to soccer fans who live around the world with the early kick-offs of Everton against Manchester United followed by Chelsea versus Arsenal.
Nevertheless, both of those games are quite a way to start Gameweek 10 of the Premier League. Will Manchester United make wholesale changes from the team Ferguson fielded last Sunday? Will Everton play 4-6-0? Will Arsenal put Andrey Arshavin in the hole behind Robin van Persie? Will Torres start for Chelsea? Lots of questions and those are just the first two games of the day.
In the six other games played today, five of them kick off at 10am ET (Manchester City v Wolves, Swansea v Bolton, Norwich v Blackburn, Sunderland v Aston Villa and Wigan v Fulham), while the final game of the day is West Brom against Liverpool (12:30pm ET).
An important note from me: After much deliberation, I’ve decided to begin advertising FOXSoccer.tv again on EPL Talk. As many of you know, I was very dissatisfied with the service in late August and distanced myself from the broadband channel (and threw up my hands in frustration). Since then, I’ve been using FOXSoccer.tv every weekend and have encountered very few issues which have been very minimal. With a big Premier League weekend like today when there are four games being shown on FOXSoccer.tv live at 10am ET, this is a day when FOXSoccer.tv can be a lifesaver. Let’s just hope the improved service continues. If you are interested in signing up, visit foxsoccer.tv today (EPL Talk receives a small commission from each subscription).
Back to today’s English football, be sure to add your questions, rants, raves and observations to the comments thread below either before, during or after any of the games. Let’s hope it’s another great weekend of entertainment.
