Really impressed with Liverpool.

All the mid-table teams are going to be piled on top of them trying to knock em out of the first spot. They better be ready.

I see the criticsm was that Pool wasn't expected to be in the great position they now are in so they may be getting a free pass in the sense of 'pressure'. I can see that but winning consistently kind of generates 'pressure' anyway..that's I think if you have a special team made up of individuals totally committed to a goal. From the looks of it, Mr. Rodgers has built something already. Now it's simply execution for the young team.

Right....just goes to show how popular the EPL here has become through the years. Some here may remember having to have subs on pay channels to get games and some of the great matches weren't even televised. You'd have to go to a pub to catch them. Thing right now I noticed is hearing US announcers now doing the EPL league. Now before they came on, we'd only hear British announcers doing the games in their specific way. Kind of got used to that you know and also it's great to watch 90 min of football without constant interruption of commercials.

I just hope we continue to use English play by play and color commentary.
