THFGFSG: Premier League Previews (Soccernet)

Produce: Spartan team-by-team list, delivered with the sincerity and earnestness one expects of the lovable Yanks at

Key Prediction: "Man United have spent the most and it should guarantee them the title, while Liverpool may have the edge on a surprisingly stingy Chelsea this season." Ah, the eternal American faith in capital expenditure.

"As for the rest, there are few surprises, although all will become clear by May 2008." All will become clear in May? No, impossible. Doesn't Soccernet know that the universe will implode in April, leaving nothing but the eternal weave and weft of the cosmos?

Best wizz-bang feature: Did you know, Beckham's in America? Beckham Beckham Beckham Beckahm.

Top four: ManYoo, Spleenpool, Chelski, Arsenal

Down: Wigan, Birmingham, Derby

Arsenal finish: 4th, with Tottenham close behind. RVP to excel, our defense to leak goals.

If this guide were a guide it would be: Lewis and Clark; intrepid, courageous, adventurous, but indebted to indigenous wisdom and Native American women

Wow! Arsenal got killed last night! Anybody see it?
The fans must have been furious! 5 – 1, I mean Tottenham played very well but Arsenal fielded barely any first team players, what were they thinking!? The Fans have every right to be annoyed! When you travel to see your team play you expect them to at least try! Whoever did a little football spread betting on Arsenal losing will be laughing all the way to work this morning! Maybe I Should start spread betting and see if I can win a few bets! I want to laugh on the way to work!
