I hope I have children like this

The best thing about children is that you can teach them and this family has done their best. If you live Holland you either love Ajax or you love Feyenord and it's really clear with this family throws there support.

This little Feyenord fan is the greatest and as all of the European leagues kick off, we salute the littlest soccer hooligan of them all.

Fulham: The EPL Champion at one thing

While Fulham may never win the league title, one thing is sure they may have the best kit in the league this year. A retro collar is always something that hits me right in the heart. Some people would take the classic look of United or Liverpool, give me a classic collar and flip them up.

Pedro Gomez can now go home

For the last two years, Pedro Gomez has been held hostage by ESPN. Gomez has been covering the show that is Barry Bonds and no one was happier last night when Bonds hit the record breaking home run, because that means that its time for him to go home. That is if he has a home.

An American and the EPL

After a summer filled with weddings, vacation and family events its time to start one of my favorite times of the year: the start of the Barclay's English Premier League.This could be the best season ever for the great shows on earth.

Here is a look at upcoming season from a overgrown child living in New Jersey.
  • Game most likely to produce a pitch invasion: Liverpool vs. Manchester at Old Trafford. Gabby Heinze scores the winner for the Kop and then celebrates in front of the Strafford End.

  • First Player to see the paddy wagon: Lee Bowyer of West Ham, hey he once punched his own team mate.

  • Uglies Strike Force in the EPL: That is an easy one: Rooney and Scare Face.

  • How does the year end for Tony Soprano look alike Martin Jol end: I'm going to go with a Journey Song playing and him still believe that he can make the Champion League.

  • Teams headed to the Fizz Pop league: Derby (It tells you something when a player would rather stay in MLS then play for them), Birmingham (Steve Bruce still can not manage in the EPL), and Wigan (escaped last year, next year it will be Coke for all).

  • Champions: Manchester United, what did you think that I was going to pick Liverpool.

  • Teams to the Champions League: United, Chelski, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

  • UEFA Cup: Spurs, Portsmouth, and Blackburn.
