Results You Can Use

First weekends are tough to predict. If this were a 38 part trilogy, this installment would be called A New Hope. Every team has a shot. Everybody is tied for first. Although, everybody is tied for last. Given a little luck in the opening match, the faith and hope of the underdogs are buoyed enough to carry them to a result in the first match. Then they dream of going to Europe, only to have reality crash down upon them the next weekend.

Once the luster of the new season is off, we can expect more predictable results. As it is, look for the new Derby County to make its mark in this weekend only to epically fail afterwards.

As always, here the weekend's scores ahead of schedule. Go ahead and lay some coin down on them. We'll let you know next week how we did.

Scores:
3-1
0-1
2-0
1-1
2-4
1-1
0-3
2-0
3-1
2-0

It's going to be a very long season if Torres and/or Gerrard have to save Liverpool's ass with a late goal during every road match.

Indulge me for one brief moment, but Rovers walked out of Goodison with 3 points and is now in a 5-way tie for first!


/aware that this is the "high" point of this season...

/and that rumors are we could still lose RSC and Benny, which would make us fucking Bolton...

/and aware that fucking Bolton "technically" leads on GD. We all know they are fucking Bolton...enjoy the colaship next season...
