English Premier League: Matchday One (Your Running Commentary)


The English Premier League season is kicking off today and I’m sure many of you will be spending the day camped out in front of the TV (or at the soccer bar) as the best league in the world begins anew.

Here are today’s games:

  • West Brom at Arsenal
  • Blackburn at Everton
  • Stoke at Bolton
  • Fulham at Hull City
  • Tottenham at Middlesbrough
  • Wigan at West Ham United
  • Liverpool at Sunderland

If you will be watching (or have watched) today’s matches, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. It’s always tough to play a team in their PL debut. That being said Fulham was not good enough today. It must have been that they didn’t use Eddie Johnson…NOT! I’m wondering why it took Roy Hodgson so long to make subs. Dempsey looks like he’ll be used as a sub unless the midfield has a few more outtings like this.

  2. Yeah I know. Just kinda dissapointed that they lost to Hull the newly promoted team. Oh well. it wont matter any ways. COYW 08-09. On the other hand congrats hull on winning your first game of the premiership season.

  3. Fulham lost – so what? The season has barely begun yet, whether it’s Hull or Arsenal, 3 points are 3 points. Real fans who have been supporting this team for years have gone through a lot worse, and know that it’s going to take a lot more than 1 single loss to a team like Hull to sink the ship. Anyone who was paying attention last year should know that it will take a HELL of a lot more than one loss.

    That is all, flame away.
