Premier League Kicks Off Saturday

So the English Premier League finally gets back into action tomorrow, Saturday August 15th, 2009. My nerves are jangling, the tension is palpable. Juvenile?

I know, but after 40 plus years, my team still has my heart.

I was born minutes away from Highbury, the beautiful, old, art deco home of Arsenal F.C. Most of my mum’s family were Arsenal supporters, my dad’s side, Tottenham Hotspur. The arch enemy….and what exactly is a Hotspur anyway?

The usual questions still cloud the air around the current Arsenal team. No depth, experience, or enough quality? My crystal ball tells me they just might be maturing into a major force, but I do worry about the squad depth.  Barring serious injuries, top 3 for sure, but unfortunately I have a nagging doubt it might be Chelsea time next May….and Gilles Peterson at least agrees with me on this one!

So it’s game on time.  Enjoy the ride and support the passion in your heart!
