    I doubt that will be the case on the long run, given how competitive and engaging the Premier League is right now. Look at the standings - so close, the matches are contested and there's no runaway party.

    With the TV market so oversaturated, the Premier League is no longer that competitive.

    Aside from watching my favorite team (LFC) and when the top of the table play against one another, I really don't pay attention to the other league games. I honestly don't want to watch WBA vs Burnley on MNF.. even though 4 goals were scored, but you get my point.

    Also, dear football gods please let LFC win the league this year.. k thanks.

    You might have wanted to watch Swansea - Crystal Palace.

    Also, Leicester Freakin' City already won the title earlier this year. Just sayin'.

    Why oversaturated though?

    It's not like you get a very even championship like the Premiership in every other country. No one comes close to the PL, and if it weren't for Bayern and PSG having far from ideal campaigns, the PL would be absolute king.

    I wish I was able to watch the Swansea - Palace game, it was on at the same time LFC were on. I did manage to watch Chelsea demolish Spurs, even though Erikson scored that great goal.

    That game was a disgrace to football. I honestly don't think I've seen a game with worse defending from both sides in my life.

    Fellaini - already the most disliked player at United. Now almost certainly cemented as the most hated and top of the list to be transferred in January.

    As a United fan i havent rated him since Moyes bought him. This season to describe him as an abysmal disgrace would be kind. I absolutely *hate* him.

    Today i was asked by a mate through text "score?" And i said

    1-0 up but we have been here before and hes bringing on bellend fellaini..

    Literally a minute later and his first contribution was to give away a penalty. His only other contribution was to turn and boot the ball into touch from an attacking position.

    The guy s me off big time. And i feel like im taking crazy pills because he keeps getting ing played!!!!!?!?!?!

    He said it's obvious that when a team like Everton plays direct you play your pet tree to help in the air like we didn't when Giroud equalised against us the other week. Hopefully Mou has learnt it would be better to send out Rashford/Lingard/Memphis sooner and go for a second goal to kill the game instead of waiting til we're under heavy pressure in the last ten minutes to park a leaky bus. More likely, he'll just use Schneiderlin or Schweinsteiger instead of Fellaini in future. Either way, it's a win.

    What happened to Schneiderlin?. When Utd bought him he was the outstanding DM in the premier league (one of the best in Europe), I don't think I've even seen him play for Utd this season.

    To Fellainis credit he is incredibly good at providing aerial dominance in the midfield. He is an excellent target for long passes in the offense and preventing the opposition from doing the same which he proved from time to time under Luis van Gaal. Unfortunately I got a hard time seeing a major club finding those skills valuable other than in very special circumstances. In my Fifa13 team he is awesome for providing aerial dominance in the midfield but in that game the goalkeepers are very keen to make long passes into the middle and it probably gives him to much credit in regards to passing skills and positional awareness.

    It seem to be a recurring problem for players making big money moves while playing alongside Jose Fonte.

    Incredibly good is a bit of a stretch, I've seen Lucas Leiva beat him in the air. He only seems to head it in the penalty area and everything else he deals with at chest height.

    I don't know where Schneiderlin is atm, my fingers are crossed it's another Mkhitaryan situation and in a week or two he'll be back to his Southampton form.

    Man, outside England people watch La Liga, the Bundesliga and Serie A which are all bundled together by the FOX-ESPN duopoly, plus very probably the French and Portuguese leagues, plus their local league and those in the same region, plus highlights from the Dutch, Belgian, Greek and other European leagues, then the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, their local continental competitions and what-not.
    In many places a very basic cable TV deal will get you three feeds for FOX and ESPN each, the latter group has additional feeds they use for big matchdays and teams. Add in local channels and you might have some five to ten matches on display at any given moment during the weekend.
    And there's national team football (WC qualification, continental cups, etc.) to add to it. What does a viewer get from the English Premier League? They get to see in which order Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea get the first six positions and European qualifications. Leicester's run happened while every other club did their best to challenge for second place and this year it has been corrected; if they had managed to keep it up you'd have seven clubs. In the rest of the tournaments you might get one club being better than all others but there's enough place for qualifying for continental tournaments and what-not.

    Although I will grant you that watching to see how Tottenham manage to end up just below Arsenal every single year does have its own peculiar charm, even if I'm not an Arsenal fan.

    So basically he's tall.

    Perhaps, and looks like they'll be reunited in the summer, if not Jan.

    He was high on my want list for Arsenal before he went to Utd but Wenger didn't fancy him as much as the press thought. Wenger knows..
