Been so long since I was able to watch an EPL match. Good to see it back on SBS.

I'll probably check out a few matches this year, never really followed it before, but after staying with family when my partner first got flown down to Perth and both my Uncle and cousins Boyfriend were made EPL fans it was pretty fun watching the games with them.

Thanks to the free sub from Optus, I decided to follow the EPL this year.

Following Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham. So far Leicester are the most enjoyable to watch. Wes Morgan is awesome and it's always fun when Vardy, Musa or Okazaki streak forward.

New season has started well and good to see our own Aaron Mooy getting off to a good start with Huddersfield Town with a great goal

sweet pic

gunners on the ropes after a humiliating loss to liverpool, they keep doing that and they'll have a new manager in a few weeks or sooner !
MU have started well and my chelsea are back to winning;
I watch the hudders match and they played well in the 1st half struggled in the 2nd but held on to a draw

Surprised they didn't get a new manager at the end of last year.

won't be long...

a couple of cracking goals from the UAE defeating the Saudis 2-1 which is great news for the socceroos; we defeat Japan thursday and we'll probably top the group and straight to the world cup next year; they were really good goals and always a great win to come from behind with class.



and mods could we change the thread title to "The World Game" probably not enough interest to have multiple threads for men's soccer, thanks :)

well that was a disaster 2-0 loss to Japan puts the socceroos world cup place in major trouble, and worse they didn't play that well against Japan so have some big issues to solve.
Tuesday' night's game against Thailand is a must win and we need to win big like 5-0 to ensure we have a chance but it will depend on the Saudi v Japan match which will be played a few hours later in Saudi Arabia. Japan have already qualified the Saudi's have everything to win.

the long way home for the socceroos; pretty lame win against Thailand last night, so many shots on goal and very few good ones. that leaves us 3rd in the group and now have to play a home and away brace with Syria and they are a good team despite the war and luckily we don't play in Syria, I think kuala lumpur is the away leg.
and then if we win another brace against the north America no. 4 which will be even more challenging !

overall pretty disappointing and made worse by the drawn out process (november will be the 2nd brace) and during the northern hemisphere club season :(

If the Socceroos can't make top 2 in an Asian group, they don't deserve to be at the World Cup. At best, they'll be easy beats making up the numbers.

your definitely correct storm; earlier soft draws against Thailand and Saudis are really what cost us auto qualification, defeating japan at home was never likely and we lack a top quality striker; we can play well but just lack some class in defence and attack.
Syria has everything to play for it will be a mammoth task for the aussies !

British football at its worst !
and after a 3 nil loss Man City supporters were probably throwing rocks at the team bus as it left... the wheels are starting to fall of the Man City bus

good to see Chelsea win the FA cup but that won't save Conte I think the supporters have already crowd sourced his airfare home :)

and good to see a keeper scoring a goal Olé !
