Music and Sport Fanatic with a great interest in hearing the opinion of all readers.
The deafening chants, the rivalries, the drama and an unimaginable amount of money, it could only signal the start of the 2011-2012 Barclays Premier League. Get ready to see some of the world's most talented footballers from all over the world. From the leadership shown by one Steven Gerrard, to the technical wizardry of Nani, even to the gobsmacking displays of Manchester City's newest star Sergio Aguero, prepare yourself for edge of your seat television.
This season is shaping up to be one of the closest races for the championship ever as current defending Champions Manchester United will have to battle against the likes of the mega – billionaire backed Manchester City, to the resurgent Liverpool under the guidance of Kenny Daglish. Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United coach, has said that this year will be the closest race for the Premiership ever.
There are plenty of new attractions to see in the Premier League this season with new players, coaches and rivalries to excite, but it is some of the old fashioned rivalries that really catch my eye. The London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal always delivers a magnificent game and with the way that Tottenham have become a serious force in the race for the title, it will be a very interesting game to view on the (02/10/11). Manchester United vs Liverpool (15/10/11) has been one of the most heated and controversial in the last number of decades, so bad that transferring players between the two is seen as forbidden. The last transfer to happen between them was in the 1960's.
There is another rivalry that is starting to brew that one day may even match or exceed the hatred between Man Utd and Liverpool, and that is between the two Manchester teams. The Manchester derby is now more important, and fought with more passion than ever because Manchester City is now seen as a threat to the Manchester throne Man Utd have been heavily rooted in for decades. This one is not only a must watch for either set of Manchester fans, but for any fan as it promises to be an immaculate show of football that can only be seen to be believed. Rooney, Nani, Vidic, Aguero, Silva and Toure are all set to dazzle in this match coming up on the 23rd of October, 2011.
If you have never watched or been a follower of 'soccer' or 'football' then there is no better time to start. In Australia the games are shown late night/early morning due to them being live so it may be the perfect thing to do when you have nothing to do the next day. Have a few mates over for the night and watch some of the most athletically gifted people in the world play a game which has been around for centuries. Cheer, boo, laugh, cry, start fights, whatever it may be, but I am telling you this is the way to spend your weekend when you feel like a night in. Catch it all live on Fox Sports for the lucky ones who have it, make friends with someone who does and kindly invite yourself over, otherwise find someone who does and learn how to get into their house (just kidding, but seriously it is worth it).

You should watch the New York Red bulls or a game with Keisuke Honda. Maybe Reinartz too
