I avidly follow the NBA and the EPL (and by extention the FA Cup and the Champions League. . maybe the carling cup haha)

I'm an NFL fan, don't have a favourite team but i'll watch a game if its on and i'll try to catch all of the playoffs.

MLB, the J-league (japanese soccer), the La Liga, Series A and the Japanese Baseball league i'll follow boxscores or watch highlights from time to time, but i'm not gutted to have missed a game.

so. . imo its only two major leagues. . but i suppose you have to include La Liga, and Series A in there

two questions.

what do you mean become, and what are the other 4 leagues?


The other 4 leagues are NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB. EPL (English Premier League) became the fifth Major League, it has developed a huge growth, a lot of international players play in it, and after the NBA, is the most global league of the world. And is followed in all the globe, while Serie A and Spanish La Liga are very followed, but they aren´t so followed in all the world. In fact, EPL is more followed and popular than NHL lol

Nice.

We completely owned Newcastle last weekend. It could have been 5 or 6-0.

I am so happy this guy is out of here. He wanted to go to Chelsea, but had to accept going to M city.
I don't think he will ever be the best player in the world as he has stated.

£32.5M is too much for him in my opinion.

I'd say £20M is an accurate amount of money for him.

£32.5M is just a joke.

That's a joke.

I don't care, they are joking.

They said they want Fabregas, Kaka, Torres and so forth, but they have no chance of getting them. They will buy big name players, but they may not click and work well together.

Yeah, we will have to see what happens, the guys that bought the team are from Abu Dhabi I think. Let's see how they manage.

When I first heard the club name, it sounded like Abou Diaby, the Arsenal player. :lol:

Arsenal V Blackburn this Saturday.

As long as we keep Santa Cruz under control, we should be fine.

Yeah right.

Fabregas, nuff' said. You can't contain him, he will create a goal one way or the other. As long as we keep Santa Cruz under control, we should have no problem. You've got a good team, but I don't think they can hold off the power of Arsenal.
