Now that I have an English Premier League team to cheer for (in case you missed my epic journey it ended up being Chelsea) I can be excited for a new season. Finally a sport is being played that I can follow and enjoy – I have tried baseball but can only get into the playoffs. Chelsea seems primed for a great run thanks to multiple great signings (Hazard, Oscar…) while others did not do much (Man City – keeping their incredible squad together). Who will come out on top?
Man City will be a year better, and they have an incredible team as it is. However…they barely beat a beat up and hack filled Man U team that had to rely on 90 year olds Paul Scholes (who came out of retirement for crying out loud!) and Ryan Giggs. This year they made “the move” – just yesterday in fact. Man U snagged the biggest of transfer prizes: RVP. Arsenal finally sold their vaunted striker to one of their great rivals. Having someone to play off of makes Wayne Rooney even more ridiculously dangerous. Now he has a shored up midfield, a healthy Tom Cleverly and the best striker in the EPL. City may still have a ton of striker talent and are a more established team, but RVP gives Rooney a new weapon not unlike the old Ronaldo days.
My Top Five:
1) Man U
2) Man City
3) Chelsea (I really wanted to put them 2nd…)
Enjoy the kick off on Sunday!
