ole ole ole...

The English Premier League is about to kickoff tommorrow with the FA Community Shield (formerly known as Charity Shield) between the mighty Red Devils and the arrogant Blues. To me its like a replay of 2006/2007 FA Cup finals not too long ago. This time around both teams should be well rested and raring to go. Plus who doesn't want a winning start right.

Can't wait I tell ya. Been a long 2 plus months. Now we have something to look forward to each weekend. A reason to drink as well. Hehe. The EPL has been going through some big changes lately with new owners and management, tonnes of new players from abroad as well as transfers between teams. Bitter rivalries being brewed as usual and all sorta hype of whos gonna take it this time around and whos gonna bomb. There also the last minute rush to secure transfers before the deadline end of this month.

The Red Devils themselves have already spent close to 40 million pounds (for Nani, Hargreaves and Anderson) and this is without counting in Tevez whos supposed to come in soon at around 20 odd million pounds. Sadly this meant the departure of some existing players. Two of which will be sorely missed. Alan Smith who has heart and determination and young Giuseppe Rossi who has talent and a great future but was never given a chance at MUFC. Can't blame them as they wanted regular first team action and they won't get it at United. At least Smith is still in the EPL while Rossi has gone to Spain.

Alrighty my pick for teams to look out for this season, besides Manchester United of course. ;)

1. Tottenham Hotspur
2. Sunderland
3. Newcastle United

Let the games begin...

Glory glory Man United!!
