Not a problem. Anything to keep the peeps updated.

And quick question or opinion. What do you guys think of Steven Pienaar? Personally, I think he can be potentially explosive. His pace, runs, movement, and control are pretty amazing. He needs to work more on his passing and finishing, but once you practice on that I feel he could be Top 4 material. I paid more attention to him this season as Everton played a big role in the Premiership this season. With the right players to his aid, he could play a big role. And I know we're all Pro United and such, but do you guys think an African influence would effect the squad positively? They possess the natural pace necessary for the game while their movement comes naturally. And breaking a defensive unit through movement is in my opinion, the best attacking football in this modern era. Reason being because it's difficult to perform as an effective unit as everything just goes out of your control as a defender.


I can't really see him improving the first XI at any of the top 4, to be honest. Maybe Arsenal at a stretch, but even then not if Rosicky is back in the side. He's a decent player, but I think Everton is just about his ideal level.

I wasn't aware that Pienaar was getting any attention at all. But I don't think I can compare neither Arteta or Cahill to Pienaar though. Arteta has that playmaker style through his smooth pass and solid control. Cahill is Center Midfielder used as a Forward at times. Arteta is a more explosive on the one on one I think while Pienaar has that natural Winger mold. That's just how I see it. I might just be hyping him up. But I think he plays well nontheless.

You think?confused I swear Arteta was out for like half of last season and in that half they went past Aston Villa to fifth. Not saying they don't need him cos he is one of their best players but their success isnt just down to him IMO.

arteta is a vital part of everton. you do realize that aston villa dropped a lot of points in the second half not to take away anything feom everton.

Villa dropped due to congested schedule and smaller squad. But don't discredit Everton, they played a well organized game through midfield and defense. They gave the Pool hell during that week where they played them in Premiership and FA Cup and replay.

Yeah, he is a good player and has potential but i don't think he's good enough to play for Barca yet. He isn't worth

ESPN also won the rights to 23 games in each of the three seasons from 2010-11 after a hastily arranged auction, although it is unclear at present how much it paid.

ESPN has signed a distribution deal with Sky, which will make its Premier League games available to Sky subscribers, who will have to pay extra to watch the games, although ESPN emphasised they will also be screened on other *platforms, including cable.

I got the e-mail for the new kit already. Makes sense why the older one sold for much less at almost the end of the season. Initially, I didn't like the stripes up top, but I can see myself getting used to it. As for next season, I heard the new sponsor was AON and not a saudi.

Edit.

It's a grower but I understand the history is this kit was worn 100yrs ago when Old Trafford first opened...so it's to celebrate that.
