Premiership Talk’s Premier League Blog Carnival

By | 13th August 2008

This first ever edition of Premiership Talk’s Premier League Blog Carnival brings football fans from around the world a large variety of fantastic preseason articles. As we count down the days until the Premier League season kicks off, keep yourself occupied by reading through these excellent articles, handpicked by Premiership Talk.

  • Our friends at Soccerlens wrote a great article about the loyalty and treatment of today’s top players. After a summer of transfer sagas based around players wanting more money (see: Adebayor and Ronaldo), it’s interesting to look back at how players like Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand treated their clubs in the past. The main question here is whether or not we – the fans – are right in booing our players. The article’s title is “To Boo or Not to Boo… are fans too soft on Barry, Gerrard, and Rio?” Check the article out here.
  • Also posted at Soccerlens is an article written by Premiership Talk’s own Brian Lofrumento. With the season fast approaching, everyone is wondering who will be the surprise package of the season. The article “Sunderland: Four Reasons Why the Giant is Awakening” suggests that Roy Keane and his squad have what it takes to cause a stir in the league this year. Read the four reasons why Sunderland are in with a shout this year by viewing the article here.
  • Premier League clubs are known around the world for splashing cash. This summer has seen no shortage of that, as even “smaller” teams like Sunderland didn’t hesitate at all to purchase a lot of players. With all of these signings, though, who is really going to make an impact? Over at Who Ate all the Pies, Ollie Irish breaks down the ten best summer signings. Will your club’s newest player crack the list? Find out by clicking here.
  • One of football’s forgotten men is Aaron Lennon. When he was young, some people compared the dimunitive winger to Cristiano Ronaldo, saying Lennon was even better. Now, though, Tottenham seem to have forgotten about him. Still only 20 years old, Lennon is at a turning point in his career: he can do his best to break into the Tottenham side or he can get his career back on track at another club. Read English Soccer Talk’s breakdown of the Aaron Lennon situation here.
  • Most fans around the Premier League aren’t entirely familiar with Premiership new-boys Hull City. With only a few days left before the season kicks off, make sure you read Premiership Talk’s article called “One Hull of a Revolution!” Joe Warrington breaks down the club’s summer signings and suggests they shouldn’t be a one-year wonder in the Prem. Read the article here.
