Holy Smokes! The Premiership starts tomorrow. I’m dumping Arsenal and rooting for Chelsea this campaign. Hopefully The Blues won’t gack at the finish line like they did last year. Doesn’t look like Chelsea made many moves over the summer, but maybe having Fernando Torres from the get-go will lead to a more dynamic squad.
Two things I learned about The Premier League last year. First, I didn’t know the season was so long. Pretty close to a nine month schedule. Second, the top teams are actually playing four seasons simultaneously: Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carling Cup. That’s a lot of football!
