Today is a big day in the world of soccer as the English Premier League kicks off. The EPL's start date features some intriguing matches including Everton vs. Arsenal (11:30 a.m. on FSC) and Hull City vs. Chelsea (6:40 a.m. on ESPN2). Now, normally I wouldn't include the Chelsea - Hull match in my list of games to watch, but I'm interested to see the Worldwide Leader make its Premier League broadcasting debut.
Not to be forgotten with the start of the Premier League are the German Bundesliga or France's Ligue 1 -- both of which will be entering their second week of matches.
But just because the European leagues are getting underway doesn't mean you should forget about good ol' MLS. If you're interested in getting a look at the Fire's next opponent watch the Galaxy host the Sounders (10 p.m. on Direct Kick) and if you want to see an Eastern Conference battle -- that has some ramifications for the Fire too -- check out D.C. against Toronto (3 p.m. on TeleFutura).
So, just out of curiosity, I was wondering what your interest level is for the Premier League/all the other European leagues. I'm thinking I'll give the European leagues a decent amount of coverage (especially in the MLS offseason...) but I want to know what you want in terms of coverage of the European leagues so share your thoughts below. Oh, and feel free to mention any favorite teams/players too...
And, as always, feel free to share any thoughts you have on the day's action in the comments section below.
