The Americans Are Invading the Premiership

You have to admit that there’s quite an American invasion happening in the Premiership right now. Oguchi Onyewu joins Newcastle United. Liverpool may be taken over by an American company, and of course there’s players like Clint Dempsey, Carlos Bocanegra, Jay Demerit, Brian McBride, Brad Friedel, Demarcus Beasley, Marcus Hahnemann, Tim Howard and many many playing regularly in the EPL each week. Oh yeah, and don’t forget about Randy Lerner at Aston Villa and the Glazers at Manchester United.

Yesterday in England, meanwhile, there was so much football on offer. Chelsea looks like they’ve returned to their winning formula by playing a very attractive style of football against a hard-working Blackburn side.

Arsene Wenger must be sitting on cloud nine knowing that his team of youngsters are in the Carling Cup Final and he doesn’t have to worry about risking injuries to his first team squad.

Speaking of injuries, Chelsea’s defensive woes continues with Ashley Cole being out for the rest of the season. Why on earth Chelsea got rid of Robert Huth and didn’t sign any defenders in the January transfer window, I have no idea.

Speaking of the transfer window, what an anti-climax that was!

Charlton got a vital point against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium. Newcastle continue their slow but steady climb up the ladder with a 3-1 home win against Aston Villa (Gooch didn’t play however). Manchester United turned on the charm offensive and convincingly won 4-0 (although the first two goals were Watford’s fault).

It’s promising to be a great weekend of football that’s approaching kicking off with the Merseyside derby.

    Although Jay DeMerit didn’t exactly “do” America proud last night. Ole Gunnar had his number.

    Check out my analysis last week regarding the American’s fighting for a World Cup spot.

    In addition, Martin Tyler is sticking with SKY.
