There have been some very interesting results this weekend, Birmingham beating Chelsea, and Tottenham coming from 2-0 to beat Arsenal 3-2, oh how I was laughing watching that game, if there is one person I can't be doing with in football it is Arsene Wenger Whinger.

I am very happy though of course because my beloved Stoke City won again, another three points for the Mighty Potters after beating West Brom 3-0 away from home.

The leauge is so tight this season, all teams can beat anyone as results are proving. I have never known the league to be this tight in November before.

I know aye, Chelsea still in shock after 3-0 lost last week, and Arsenal forgot the important rule of football "it's not over till the last whistle".
Arsene Wnger is one of the best managers i've ever known in the history football, but sometimes he gets cocky, and underestimated Tottenham, but i have to give it to Tottenham lads, they played good football.

Congrats on winning an away game mate, Manchester won 2-0 as well at home making us equal with Chelsea on goal differences.
Yeah, cus anything can happened in football, that's why i love football hahaha

I have to admit I didn't follow the EPL much lately. But I check the results every now and then. And I of course have my favorite team(s) and the ones I don't like at all.

And congrats dazza! And you too Ardi...even tho you support Man. Utd :P

I liked Chelsea for a while, because Ballack played there. :P But since the last EL season I like Fulham more. Despite the fact that they managed somehow to beat my team in the EL semi final. Their goalie is cool, Mark Schwarzer.

haha, he looked old when the germans scored 4 goals at the World Cup. :P But I think he was helpless against most of them. Defence didn't work well. haha good luck.

Dont get me started on our defenses, it was the worst defending in football. Dunno why, but they wont run, or chased the ball, all they do was standing around and call the offside which didnt happened lol..

Not many German players in the Premier League now which is why you should like Stoke because of Robert Huth :P

Fulham have a good set of fans and I like going to Craven Cottage, a good old fashioned ground with a decent atmosphere.

Mark Schwarzer is a fantastic goalkeeper and I have picked him many times in my fantasty team, although this season I have opted for Joe Hart.

and this week Stoke vs Man City, big game for Dazza hahaha

I can't wait for this, the way we are playing at the moment I am confident that we can get the win and we are at home, we always feel we can beat anyone at home. But Man City have some great players so we know it will be a tough match.

As a Leeds fan, I look forward to being back where we belong soon. I reckon 2-3 years and we'll be there.

haha, or West Ham, they have Thomas Hitzlsperger. :P

Craven Cottage looks really nice. We only have really modern stadiums (accept the lower leagues of course).

I wonder if any games will be affected by the snow, probably not in the Premier League but certainly lower down.

It hasn't hit Stoke yet but there is a chance we may get some before the match. I hope so, I love matches when it snows. Our best home performance came in the snow last season when we beat Fulham 3-2. A freezing Stoke-on-Trent is the last place the pampered Man City players will want to be... it will be a tough game so I will take anything that gives us the edge.

good luck to Stoke, City's a tough team, especially when Tevez is in his top form. Im disappointed at Fergie for not signin Tevez for another season... but good luck to Stoke

Got a question for you guys. I don't watch soccer and am not a fan so I'm completely ignorant to this.

What is soccer coverage like over there in England?

Here our entire Saturday is spent with football coverage and football games on TV. Sunday is spent with pro football games and coverage. Then you've got Monday Night Football with all it's coverage etc. Our coverage consists of analysis before the game and analysis after the game. Film breakdown by the commentators. Breakdown and analysis of plays and players and the decisions made by the players and the coaches etc. It becomes quite in depth which we all enjoy.

It's not too far from how you say American football is covered actually.

Media coverage of football (soccer) is absolutely massive here, it's worth hundreds of millions of pounds for the TV rights alone. There are channels dedicated to football and a lot of the big clubs have their own satelite channels.

On a Saturday, which is the main day here for football, there is a live game at 12.45pm and 5.25pm, sandwiched between these, the rest of the untelevised games kick off at 3pm, with highlight shows throughout the evening, all of these come with analysis from well known pundits. We also have Monday Night Football.

On a Sunday there can be up to three live games in one day. On occassions, league games can also be played on a midweek evening one or two of which are televised. There are also English cup competitions as well as cup competitions with other clubs from around Europe, all the European games are televised.

As well as this, we also get live Spanish football on a Sunday evening, live German football on a Friday evening and highlight shows of the Italian league.

Man United 7-1 Blackburn
Stoke City 1-1 Man City
Aston VIlla 2-4 Arsenal
Bolton 2-2 Blackppol
Everton 1-4 West Brom
Fulham 1-1 Birmingham
West Ham 3-1 Wigan
Wolves 3-2 Sunderland

A close 7-1 :P Guessing your happy then?

A draw is a good result for us but I am so dissapointed we didn't win the game, we were fantastic and outplayed Man City in the first half. I know we equalised in the last minute but a draw was the least we deserved.

Well there actually is some coverage in the US. I was able to watch football (soccer). But of course American Football is dominating.
