The new English Premier League football season is upon us. I completely missed out on catching up on the latest news and fixtures. Not sure which players have moved on to different clubs. I will probably start getting into it in a few days, after watching the match on tv today. It was Newcastle United vs Manchester United. Both sides were missing some big name players, including Carlos Tevez & Michael Owen. It ended in a 1-1 draw but the match did have some good moments.
A goal by debutant Samir Nasri, formerly of Marseilles, gave a not-so-impressive Arsenal a 1-0 win over West Brom. That is not enough if we want a chance to win some silverware this season. I do not like the squad that we have; a quick glance at the current Gunners will let you know why! We are hopelessly low on big names and firepower. I hope that we get some stars by January.
Here’s hoping for an exciting season in 2008-09!
