Well we got Germany in our group, should be a decent match up between the British Champions & the World Champions.

Yeah i was surprised by the result but i never take the charity shield too seriously.

Looking forward to the start of the season, really interested to know how the big 3 do (and perhaps Arsenal 'might' make it the big 4)

Getting to be a bit of a pain trying to watch whatever game, is it on Sky, nope, its now BT !

Saying that I had BT Sport on Virgin Media and canceled that package this week because they wanted to charge me £3 more because BT Sport has more games this season and something about ultra HD.

I was under the impression BT Sport was just another set of channels under my package, didn't see the point in paying out, when I can see all the highlights online and I only get the chance to watch the odd game in full, plus Michael Owen is the most boring commentator I have ever heard.

Been watching the Premiership live from the U S of A on NBC on basic cable. Coverage is a bit crap but all the games and goals are covered so can't complain.

Nice 2-0 win for Coventry over Wigan, Mowbray had us drilled well over a pretty average Wigan side, having a whole new team didn't help them tho.

I'm beginning to believe Lukas Jutkiewicz is actually a fan who won a competition to train with the team, and accidentally ended up being included in our first team squad.

Frustrating loss for Reading (as always !).

Surprised to see Chelsea draw and Arsenal lose. Nice to have the footy back, i'm spending this year watching match of the day highlights

Jukebox was an excellent striker for us before he moved to Middlesbrough, always looked a goal threat, think we would have stay up that season if we kept hold of him.

Very happy with Pompey's start including a home win over Derby last night in the Coca Cola Cup

So who is Mourinho going to blame for the loss today?

I'm thinking the tea lady for putting too many sugars in the tea...

Three games into the season and Forest get a win, woo. :D

Chelsea playing with one up front, against 4 defenders; and that one with no great pace. If you're going to play with one up front, then you have to have midfielders ready and willing to be available to lay the ball off to, but that was lacking for Chelsea all afternoon.

I rate Mourinho as the greatest Prem manager, but I'm baffled why he couldn't see after the first 15 minutes that his tactics simply weren't working - unless he thought by persevering they would. Either half the side isn't fit, or they don't have the desire to fight for the ball; either way they need to start giving Remy some proper game time, as on today's showing Costa is likely to get more cards than goals this season. I'm not a great fan of Falcao, I really don't think he has the desire to work hard in a team, and it surprises me that after last year's showing Jose would have him in his team; but if he is to do so, then without a regular first team place he will never show his best.
