Weekend Preview – April 10-13

With all of the Premier League clubs now knocked out of the Champions League – and Liverpool and Fulham’s stays in the Europa League are still up in the air at press time – all eyes now focus on the two remaining pieces of silverware to be won this season. The […]

Premier League Preview – Feb. 27-28

Hi Roberto, welcome to life in the Premier League. Once upon a time, Roberto Mancini rode in on a white horse, donned a dashing scarf and sparked hopes of not only sneaking Manchester City into the top four, but winning a trophy of some sort to snap decades worth of […]

Premier League Preview – Feb. 6-7

Another Big Four match and the Merseyside Derby highlight this weekend’s slate, but really, the one key question is this: Will Arsenal fall from title to contender to afterthought in a week’s time? That may sound a bit drastic, but after falling to Manchester United last weekend the Gunners now have to cross London […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 30-Feb. 1

Two of the top three teams in the Premier League table will clash on Sunday when Manchester United come to London to face Arsenal. You won’t want to miss it, and if you check out the EPL Talk TV schedule, you won’t. It’s a huge match for both clubs, but […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 23-27

It might only be for five days, but Manchester United has the chance to jump Arsenal and Chelsea in the league standings when it welcomes Hull City for the only Premier League game scheduled for the weekend on Saturday. It’s an FA Cup weekend, after all. But there’s still plenty […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 9-11

So, will he or won’t he? Will Landon Donovan, now on loan at Everton, get on the field at the Emirates this weekend? He’s easily the most polarizing figure in American soccer and the debate on whether he’s the best player ever to pull on a national team shirt or […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 26-27

Happy Holidays! It’s Christmas Eve, so I would be remiss if this week’s preview didn’t have a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus/Ashura theme. I’m more of a Christmas kind of guy myself, so that’s the direction I’ll be heading in first. It may not have come upon a midnight clear, but this is the […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 19-21

The season chugs on towards the half-way point, and while this weekend’s fixture list might be lacking a marquee matchup, the need for points is still critical for all of the teams. Here’s the TV schedule. And now, on with the preview: Portsmouth vs. Liverpool Fratton Park is the venue for […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 12-13

  How many “Liverpool must win” stories can be written about this year’s squad? Well, at least one more. Already 12 points adrift of Chelsea and headed for the Europa League, the shine off the 2009-2010 campaign is fading fast. At least Sunday’s latest all-or-nothing fixture with Arsenal is at […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 5-6

A clash of the wealthy highlights this weekend’s schedule as Chelsea pay a visit to the blue side of Manchester to face City. And no, there’s no truth to the rumor that Mark Hughes will be on hand in South Africa for the World Cup festivities. I can understand where […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 28-29

It hasn’t been a great week for Liverpool, with its elimination from contention for the knockout stages of the Champions League casting a larger shadow on a season that’s already looking a bit dim. It hasn’t been a much better week for Everton, with a 3-2 loss at Hull in […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 21-22

After an International break that completed the 32-team field for the World Cup next summer in South Africa, the EPL surges back to action this weekend with an important fixture at Anfield. That game is on ESPN in glorious high definition. Here’s the entire TV schedule. Now, on to the […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 7-9

Does it get much better? Manchester United visits Chelsea this weekend with first place on the line. I could stop there, but then this wouldn’t be much of a preview, would it? Before we get into the games, check out the TV schedule. And don’t forget to tab the winners […]

Premier League Preview, Oct. 31-Nov. 1

The North London Derby highlights this week’s slate of games as Arsenal prepares to entertain Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Somebody in Bristol is smiling today, as the early match on ESPN figures to be the most-watched game yet on the network. It’s on at 8:45 a.m. on ESPN2, if you’re […]

Premier League Preview – Sept. 26-28

If it’s lonely at the top, you wouldn’t guess it by watching Chelsea run rampant through the Premier League in the early stages of the 2009-2010 campaign. With a perfect 18 points in six matches and a +12 goal difference to boot, the Blues aren’t letting their recent transfer ban […]

What's Rising

Fact or Trash! Jan 2008 – Round 1

Before I get started, a quick correction on yesterday’s post – QPR’s deals for Connolly and Ephraim are permanent moves and not just loan deals. I also neglected to mention a couple of “future star” signings that were made by Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United as well as deals […]
