First game of the Premier League season and I’m excited. No TV in the US, but available via streaming video here (tip: use Internet Explorer on a PC). I expect the full three points and a complement of goals, especially if I’m gonna be up watching at 4:45 AM.
Liverpool just signed Dirk Kuyt, the third Dutch Benitez signing behind Agger and Kromkamp. It’s funny that England is again imperialising – Liverpool claim Spain and Holland talent, Arsenal claim France, and Chelsea claim Portugal. I’m sure Kuyt will be great, but doesn’t it seem like we sign a lot of strikers? Cisse, Morientes, Crouch, Bellamy, Fowler…I’ll put my faith in Rafa as he’s done great things so far.
