Schmeichel, Simpson, Hernandez, Morgan (c), Fuchs, Mahrez, King, Drinkwater, Gray, Musa, Vardy.

Jakupovic, Robertson, Davies, Elmohamady, Meyler, Huddlestone, Snodgrass, Clucas, Livermore, Diomande, Hernandez.

We're almost back. Just need someone to post a poorly formatted United lineup.

Hi all!

So I have been following The Beautiful Game on the fringes for a long time, usually with video games, lots of FIFA (mostly American databases) of Football Manager (yay steam sales), following the USA in the World Cup and of course hearing about Leicester City

Anyway since I recently got cable this year I want to start watching the BPL!

So Where do I start? It seems very complicated in getting to know teams and players, and who to start following.
My initial thoughts on who to follow is Everton mostly with the now (former) Tim Howard connection as I have since learned. Good idea? For those that follow the NFL I am a big Minnesota Vikings fan so I am used to heartbreak :(
Or anything that you think I should know would be very helpful!

You could do a lot worse than Everton like United so Everton is a decent pick. But you don't have to follow any specific team, just watch the better games of the weekend if you have the time and you might get drawn to a club.

I mean my advice would be just read a lot of websites dedicated to it (FourFourTwo, the PL site, etc) and watch a lot of games on these first days of the season to get a feel of each team's style and see what could interest you (although you KNOW you'll end up supporting United 8) )

I assume you've read it but the wikipedia page of the Premier League is pretty well done :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premier_League

And the premier league website has summaries of previous seasons :

Mahrez had a shocker in the community shield. Just seems as if he'd rather be somewhere else just now.
