Given that no one really reads our weekly blab on UK Football, we considered whether to share our tips or not this weekend, and who could blame you, there’s far better websites that explain all this much better.
But on the off chance that any of these win, we don’t want to hear from all of our many fan that we didn’t share. Plus it’s a good place to go back and check what we’ve selected tonight when following the action.
Best not to get too complacent with watching the EPL in Australia, because with Optus taking over, who knows what form it will be visible for next year. If it has no presence on either Fox Sports or some combined effort with a free to air TV station, then the money paid won’t seem like the greatest amount of value. Just like Fox Sports in summer without it. Considering the US Sports are on ESPN, and by this time next year V8’s, F1, and all footy is over, the A League will be the only headline sport. Pffft, not enough value for that $25 a month.
Who knows, it will probably all go on Be In Sports whose $20 a month fee for Foxtel will seem like a necessary evil if the EPL joins. They have everything else.
Two people that probably won’t be seen on any EPL coverage next year will be Steve McLaren, and Jose Mourinho. Unless Chelsea go on some kind of run and finish 4th or better, Jose will do his usual 3rd season exit. Certainly not one to tough it out. Steve McLaren will be lucky to see in 2016 as Newcastle boss. Somehow he took a dead certainty (Derby) for promotion in last year’s Championship to 8th, and was rewarded with an EPL job at a big club. His reputation seems to have got him some reasonable jobs, but it definitely being found out this season. Would anyone do better at Newcastle? Probably not, one wonders what they think of Pardew’s success at Crystal Palace.
Peaking the interest in European Football is a tight battle at the top of the Italian league for a change. One major competition has to be close with Germany and France already seemingly won, and Spain heading the same way with Barcelona.
There’s also the large interest of the Gary Neville’s appointment at Valencia, which will hopefully turn out better than Moyes at Real Sociedad.
