Birmingham

Football fans are hard pressed to find positive news for the upcoming season in terms of Birmingham City. Scottish manager Alex McLeish could barely keep the board happy last year in a promotion season and this year will just get tougher now that they are in the Premier League. McLeish is seen as the likeliest candidate to lose his job first this year. Will that happen or will Birmingham City shock the Premier League? Log in with OleOleFootball to watch Birmingham City live and find out.

Birmingham city needs to get in better shape and show some improvement soon. They are coming off a disappointing pre season and while friendlies are not the best gauge of talent, the team is showing real problems scoring goals. The team has been charged with uninspired play as of late but if anyone can deal with the pressure it is McLeish, who also lead the Rangers for 5 years.

The team is ripe with up and coming players who are eager to prove themselves during live English Premier League football. Birmingham has brought in Scott Dann, Roger Johnson and Christian Benitez in hopes that they can lead the way on defence and bring goals about respectively. The team has been focused on building experience and leadership this year. They have Lee Bowyer, Barry Ferguson, Sebastian Larsson, Damien Johnson and James McFadden all competing for spots. Joe Hart is a younger player but has just as much to prove after coming over on loan from Manchester City.

While Birmingham may add more players and squeak out some narrow victories, the season looks like it will be filled with sparse entertainment and quite a few rumors around the dismissal of McLeish. However there is only one way to find out what will really happen, and that is by watching all the Birmingham live football. And the best place to do that is with live streaming football on OleOleFootball.…

Manchester United

After successfully putting together three campaigns in a row that were full of trophies, there seem to be a few question marks hanging over Manchester United this season. For the first time in a while the team is dealing with some adversity and it will be interesting to see how they react. You can watch Manchester United live by tuning in right here on OleOleFootball, your home for live English Premier League football.

Possibly the biggest news out of Manchester this summer has been the defection of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez. Ronaldo left for Real Madrid in the largest transfer deal ever and Tevez was lured to Manchester City during their massive spending spree. The two moves have robbed United of some of their star status and have left them with more than a few holes to fill.

However if any team can overcome the adversity this 2009-10 EPL season it is Manchester United. No one is willing to count them out just yet and Alex Ferguson’s team can handle the pressure. Ferguson has an unmatched ability to put together winning teams and there are still a number of stars on the team including Berbatov and Wayne Rooney.

It appears that Nemanja Vidic is expected to return strong from injury for the season and the team has brought in new up and comer Antonio Valencia. Of course possibly the most popular player on the team right now is Michael Owen. He is trying to prove that he can still lead the way and could be one of the best and most underrated signings during the transfer season. If own and Valencia can step up and young players Federico Macheda and Danny Welbeck can come into their own, Manchester United should prove to still be one of, if not the, top team in the EPL.

You are not going to want to miss a single Manchester United live game this year and you don’t have to thanks to OleOleFootball. Sign up, tune in, and get all the live footy action you could want.…

Stoke City

Stoke City has never been considered an elite team in the English Premier League but they have always played hard and brought good competition to the top division. This year they will be looking to improve on their 12th place finish last year and possibly turn the corner and finish in the top 10. A top 10 finish would be a huge step and you can watch Stoke City live and their journey all season long by tuning into OleOleFootball.

Stoke City live football at home has always been their strong point. Last year, after a slow start the team really came together and were able to finish with a 10-5-4 record in their home, Britannia. The problem for the team was their abysmal road record as they finished 2-4-13 away from home and never seemed to be at their best when playing on someone else’s turf. Still the good news is that they improved in the second half of the year and that their strong home record kept them in the Premier League for a second year in a row.

In terms of player chances the team has brought in a trio of new faces, Matthew Lund, Dean Whitehead and Ben Marshall. They only player to leave was Danzelle St Louis-Hamilton. Even though they didn’t play well on the road last year they still defied many predictions of football experts and will try to that again this year in Stoke City live football matches.

All eyes will be on James Beattie this year as he helped the team survive last year after coming over from Sheffield United. After his transfer he seemed to inspire the rest of the team to play harder and improve their form. Tony Pulis will hope that he can once again lead the way and you can see it all go down right here with live streaming football on OleOleFootball.…

Manchester City

Will all the money they threw around help them climb to the top of the divison? Tune into Manchester City live games on OleOleFootball all season long to find out.

The team has not really started their whole team together so far in the pre season but they have been playing well. Manager Mark Hughes spent an incredible amount of money this year and brought in the likes of Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz to name a few. Many people wonder how all the stars will mesh together but everyone is excited to see this team take the field.

With all the big names joining the team there is still a lot of work for Manchester City to do in order to compete with the best teams in the English Premier League. All eyes will be on Tevez and Santa Cruz as fans are hoping that these prized players can bring them to the promise land. Gareth Barry will also play a central role in the midfield after proving his elite status with Aston Villa last year.

With Barry’s midfield play, Santa Cruz’ powerful strikes, Tevez’ lightning quick play and Adebayor’s attacking play the Citizens have all the tools to bring titles to the team. How the gel, mesh, and play together will have a big effect on the entire season. Can all the stars co-exist and play together? Or is this just money thrown around without any thought?

AFC Asian Cup

The AFC Asian Cup returns to Qatar after a gap of over two decades as the tiny Emirate hosts the fifteenth edition of the tournament in January 2011. Sign up today with Ole Ole Football and watch all games from the 2011 Asian Cup live on your computer.

All the big Asian nations have qualified for this tournament, the winner of which will be the region’s representative at the next FIFA Confederations Cup. Fans across the world will get to see the likes of Japan, Australia, China and South Korea live in action as they slug it out for the right to be crowned champions of the world’s most populous continent.

Our live Asian Cup 2011 streaming coverage includes all 24 group games as well as the eight knockout fixtures including the semifinals and the final. Watch all the best Asian Cup streams online from your control panel at Ole Ole Football.

Group A consists of hosts Qatar, neighbours Kuwait, China and 1994 Asian Games champions Uzbekistan. Qatar failed to get past the group stage when they last hosted the tournament in 1988 and will be hoping to avoid a repeat in 2011.

Group B has two three time champions in the form of Saudi Arabia and Japan, with Jordan and Syria completing the numbers. Saudi Arabia were also the runners up in the last edition of the tournament that was won by Iraq.

Group C is easily the toughest group in the tournament. It pits South Korea, Australia, Bahrain and India against each other. South Korea and Australia both appeared at the 2010 World Cup and performed creditably, while Bahrain were just a step away from qualifying for the tournament, losing in the intercontinental playoffs to New Zealand.

Defending champions Iraq are in Group D along with fierce local rivals Iran, North Korea and the United Arab Emirates. North Korea, who were surprise qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup, are making their first appearance in the tournament since 1992. Iran have always performed consistently in this tournament and are tied for the most number of wins along with Saudi Arabia and Japan. 1996 champions UAE, coached by Srecko Katanec, can prove to be a handful on their day.…

Liverpool

Star studded and storied franchise Liverpool has gone 19 years without a league title, but many football experts are predicting that this year could be all about them. Expectations are high and not even the loss of star Xabi Alonso has dampened the hoped of Liverpool fans. It will definitely be an exciting season in the English Premier League and live Liverpool games are going to provide a lot of great football. You can watch Liverpool live by tuning in right here on OleOleFootball, your source for the best live online football.

While there are high hopes for the team Rafael Benitez was unable to do all the tinkering that he hoped to. He did acquire Glen Johnson and Alberto Aquilani but he wanted to do much more. The loss of Alonso undoes most of his work but the team still thinks they will be just fine without him. They will miss his play but it will be exciting to see how Benitez spends the money he received in the transfer.

The team needs to add a few players as their roster is short but the have the makings of an incredible team. They need to make a move to replace Sami Hyppia and find more support for Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard. There are rumblings that Benitez has close to 40 million pounds to spend and he may use it to attract David Silva or possibly Sylvain Distin. Either way, Johnson will be keen to provide support for Dirk Kuyt and it looks like Liverpool is one or two players away from possibly competing for the top spot in the Premier League.

Liverpool will undoubtedly bring their A game to the live English Premier League and will be competing at the top of the division. Whether they can claim the top spot and overcome the loss of Alonso remains to be seen. The best way to find out how Liverpool will play is by tuning into Liverpool live games right here on OleOleFootball.…

Hull City

Phil Brown has always been regarded as a man that can attract talent and improve his team, but that ability seems to be waning lately quite quickly. He was unable to bring anyone to KC stadium this summer of relevance and that will make this season a struggle for Hull City. Tune in and see if Hull City can compete with what they have and enjoy Hull City live football thanks to OleOleFootball.

Just to name a few people that turned down Hull City this summer, Fraizer Campbell, Bobby Zamora and Michael Owen all spurned the team. They did manage to bring in Steven Mouyokolo as their only off season signing and then secured Seyi Olofinjana from Stoke and Jozy Altidore on loan from Villarreal.

Hull City is trying to fight back from their horrible slide last year as they were only able to win 1 game in their last 23. They were only able to escape relegation thanks to Newcastle United’s colossal collapse.

Brown has had success and this kind of disappointment is not common for him so he is obviously trying to pull his team back. The team has just continued to have a lot of bad luck that seemed to start in January, and especially when their big signing Jimmy Bullard got injured in his first game.

This season Hull City will depend on the return of Bullard to top form and help that he can contribute to the fine play of Nick Barmby and Geovanni. While scoring goals will most likely continue to be a problem, their defense is in top form and should keep them in a number of games.

While Hull City’s defense be enough to help them avoid relegation or will the other teams in the Premier League overpower them? You can watch every moment of the live Hull City action right here on OleOleFootball, your home for English Premier League games all season long.…

Fulham

As things stand at the moment it seems that Fulham really could go either way in the 2009-10 English Premier League. They surprised many people last year with their play but it will be a difficult task to repeat that performance as their squad is small and so many other clubs have spent so large. If you are a Fulham fan or just love the English Premier League then you will want to watch Fulham live all season long on OleOleFootball.

There are a few rumors that Arsenal is making a strong play for defender Brede Hangeland. If that happens the team’s defense could be upset quite a lot. However the team will still be able to rely up top tier defenders Paul Konchesky, John Painstil, Lark Schwarzer and Aaron Hughes. Each of them had their best seasons so far last year in the Premier League and should continue to improve.

On the other side of the ball a lot of the pressure to compete will rest on the performance of midfielder Danny Murphy. Fulham also brought in Bjorn Helge Riise and may possible bring in Kagiso Dikgacoi. Manager Hodgson has not made many moves and is a very solid believer in keeping a squad settled and in tact. He hopes that the pieces the team has can continue to improve, including Clint Dempsey who came on strong during the second half of last year.

It remains to be seen whether Fulham will continue to progress or in fact digress. The only managed to score 39 goals over the course of 38 matches and need to up their tempo this year. Watch Fulham live and see if they can add some scoring punch this year and move up in the Premier League with a membership to OleOleFootball.…

Chelsea

A year later and to be honest not much has changed at Stamford Bridge. A year ago Chelsea dealt with a season where two new managers came and went and where disappointing rained through in the Premier and European League. Carlo Ancelotti is set with the task of trying to please everyone in the league with Chelsea’s performance, and come question his ability. One thing is for sure though, and that is that Chelsea live football is always entertaining and will continue to be in 2009-10.

It is up to Ancelotti to keep up the team’s momentum that Guus Hiddink got started near the end of last year. He has been unable to find that marquee player that team is after but there is still more than enough talent to compete at the top level. Frank Lampard should be liberated under the new system and Didier Drogba, John Terry and Yuri Zhirkov should provide much needed energy all across the field.

Fans of Chelsea live football were more than pleased with the team’s ability to hang onto John Terry after Manchester City came knocking on the door. Terry partnered up with Ricardo Carvalho should provide solid defense and the likes of Michael Ballack, Ashley and Joe Cole, John Mikel Obi and Florent Malouda should bring all the firepower the team needs to stick to the top of the league.

Ironically some pressure may be relieved this year for Chelsea now that Manchester City has taken over the spot as top spenders in the league. Now it seems that football fans will take down some of their unrealistic expectations for the team. With Manchester United losing their top two players, Carlos Tevez and Cristiana Ronaldo, there is no doubt that Chelsea may be able to compete for the EPL title.

Will Chelsea be able to excel under their new manager or will teams like Manchester City be able to overtake Chelsea in the English Premier League 2009-10 season? Tune in right here on OleOleFootball and find out just exactly what will happen with all the live Chelsea football you want.…

Bolton

Gary Megson has not been enjoying his time at the helm of the Bolton Wanderers that much and has picked up on the vibe that not many fans appreciate him. While he was a peculiar choice for the team, there is hope throughout the club that he can stun the fans and bring Bolton into Premier League relevancy. Will that actually happen?

After inheriting a quickly aging squad Megson has led the team to relative safety. There are at least a half dozen larger clubs stuck in divisions alone but Megson still wants to take the team further. He made some very sensible purchases by acquiring Paul Robinson, Zat Knight, Sean Davis, and Sam Ricketts. With those additions and some good luck it is not unthinkable for Bolton to be able to finish within the top 10 of the Premier League. And if they do, the fans would have to give Megson a lot of the credit.

The Bolton manager has also brought in Gary Cahill and Matt Taylor who both excelled with the team last year. The one knock on his moves was the addition of Johan Elmander who cost over 8 million pounds yet only netted 5 goals. If Bolton really wants to finish in the mid-table, it may be up to Elmander to prove why he was worth so much money.

It should be an exciting season for the Bolton Wanderers and their fans. Can Megson take them to the next level and keep his doubters quiet? Or will players like Elmander continue to disappoint and force fans to call for Megson’a head? The best way to find out is to watch Bolton live right here on OleOleFootball.…
