Hypothetically speaking, if I wanted to watch premiere league football, which team should I root for any why?
I’m probably the worst person to answer this because I’m not really a true fan of any team and I’m new to watching football. But I do like watching the Premiere League, so…
Chelsea looks like they’re going to be good this year. I don’t know if I like them but they certainly are exciting to watch (if you can find yesterday’s match, do - it was fantastic). Liverpool also looks like they could be good - Daniel Sturridge is particularly interesting. I have soft spots for Arsenal & Hull because they are the two teams that I first started watching in the Premiere League (plus Elementary’s Sebastian Moran was/is an Arsenal fan and the Hull fans’ “we’ll die when we want" cheer is pretty awesome), but neither team looks particularly compelling this year although it is early yet. If you like Tim Howard, he plays for Everton - I think they’re better than yesterday’s score indicates but they need to play better defense.
Then there are the Manchester teams; of the two I’d probably pick City rather than United (who look a bit of a hot mess right now). I tend to pull for Stoke on the rare occasions when I actually get to see them play - I’d love to say it was for some deep, meaningful reason but I just like their name and they seem a bit of an underdog.
If bird mascots are your thing there’s Swansea and the Tottenham Hotspurs. I’ve yet to see Swansea play this year but Tottenham looked pretty boring in their game today. The rest of the teams I know even less about, particularly Burnley and Queens Park Rangers.
I’m not sure if this was at all helpful, but take it for whatever it’s worth.
