Aston Villa has been on a steady rise for the past few years under Marin O’Neill, but it will be a challenge to keep up that trend during the 2009-10 season. The Irishman has helped Aston Villa finish 6th the past two years, but unless a surprise transfer move comes soon, it seems they might be destined for a fall in the standings this year. You can see Aston Villa live football matches and find out just how well they match up this year by signing up right here on OleOleFootball, your home for live English Premier League action.O’Neil is the first to admit that the team needs new players to compete. The only move they made came by way of the addition of Stewart Downing, but he won’t even be ready until December. The transfer of Gareth Barry to Manchester City and the retirement of Martin Laursen have left huge holes in the middle of the filed for Aston Villa. Pressure will be put on Nigel Reo-Coker and Steve Sidwell but neither of them possesses the talent and composure that Barry has.
After playing out last season with the fewest players in the EPL, the team is even lighter this year. Just one injury could send the team spiralling in the standings. There are positives though for the team as they might be able to bring in Sylvain Distin and have young up and comer Marc Albrighton looking like he is ready for the big time.
The other good news is that the team does have a few options up front with John Carew, Emile Heskey and Gabriel Agbonlahor leading the way. That is not to neglect the emergence of Ashley Young either.
It looks like Aston Villa has an outside chance to break the top 6 in the standins this year, but all the cards will have to fall in the right way. Can they overcome a short stacked roster or will injuries deplete the lineup even more? There is no better place to find out and watch Aston Villa live than OleOleFootball.…

Last year in the English Premier League
was a difficult and frustrating one for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal
as they have come under constant scrutiny for not being able to win a trophy. This year they will be trying to turn the tides but will face even more pressure thanks to major improvements that have been made by other teams around them, such as Manchester City. A top 4 finish may be out of the cards for Arsenal unless everything goes right this year. Tune in and watch Arsenal live during the English Premier League 2009-10 season right here on OleOleFootball.
Arsenal and their manager sat tight this off season and did not give into the pressure to throw loads of money around. They are banking on the return of players such as Tomas Rosicky and Eduardo from injury and Wenger has also put a lot of faith into young studs such as Alex Song, Aaron Ramsey and Abou Diaby. However, this faith has not carried over to the fans as most Arsenal followers feel the team is not good enough right now without any more additions.
Hopes for this season of live Arsenal football will rest on a passing style game that compares to the one Barcelona uses, and should work will thanks to Nicklas Bendtner, Van Persie, Andrey Arshavin and of course Eduardo, if he returns to top form. The downside is that the two major players the team lost could have made this transition to a 4-5-1 formation much easier. Without Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor, Arsenal will be fighting an uphill battle.
While Arsenal fans are still excited for live English Premier League football, there is a lot of hope that Wenger will find a way to use the transfer money received from Manchester City to bolster the lineup, and soon. Will they make a move right as the transfer window closes? Or does Arsenal have enough to compete as it is? Find out the answer to these questions and more by signing up for live streaming football on OleOleFootball.…

If anyone doubts the allure of the Premier League then all the need to do is look at the summer story involving Owen Coyle and his efforts when it comes to Burnley live football. The Burnley signing chose to stick in the EPL rather than join his childhood team Celtic and become boss. He is focused on continued the adventure at the Turf Moor and you can watch his progress as well as his team’s progress this year right here on OleOleFootball.
Coyle is paramount for the team’s success as they try and return that their return to the top division is not a short one. His penchant for fast football led the team on a remarkable run in the Carling Cup where they beat Arsenal, Fulham, and Chelsea. But what is the likelihood that the team can keep it up? Coyle hopes his five signings can allow the team to compete at the top level.
Steven Fletcher is the team’s most expensive signing ever at 3 million pounds and he will be relied upon to bring a bulk of the offense. James Beattie, Martin Paterson, Chris Eagles, Robbie Blake and Graham Alexander will have to be at their best to allow Burnley to finish in the top 17 this year, but it is possible. The team still only has 25 players but this actually makes it easier for Coyle to manage the team appropriately.
Burnley has always focused on developing young talent and they will not let the allure of live Premier League football affect the way they do business. The real question is whether Burnley and its players will be ready to push forward or just settle and be happy to be back in the English Premier League. OleOleFootball will have a ton of Burnley live football for viewing so that you can tune in and see every moment this season, and see which direction this team heads in.…

If there is a telltale sign of the upcoming English Premier season it may be that Blackburn now offers the cheapest tickets in the entire league. Is that a simple recognition of the current economy or an admittance of the team being unable to compete? They were able to hang on to top flight status last year which will give fans a chance to watch more Blackburn live EPL games, but can they remain competitive? OleOleFootball is the best place to find out what will happen during the EPL 2009-10 season with all the live streaming football you can handle.
There were times last year when the Rovers were in shambles with losses like the 3-0 game at Wigan, but a lot of that may have been justified by a number of injuries. However they did show some resilience in hard fought games against Fulham and Manchester United and have been boosted by the signings of Franco Di Santo and Nikola Kalinic. It is up to manager Allardyce to ensure that he gets the most from his players every time the take the pitch. They can’t afford to deal with off days from inconsistent players such as Jason Roberts, El Hadji Diouf and Benni McCarty, especially with Brett Emerton and David Dunn injured.
Confidence is often seen as key in football, and Blackburn will need all the confidence they can get in order to get off to a good start. A poor start this EPL 2009-10 season could make for a scary and downright hellish October as the team has to travel and face Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea.
Be sure to sign up with OleOleFootball to watch Blackburn live and see if they can overcome adversity and remain competitive this year. Will key players step up or will the fans revolt after poor play, no matter how cheap the ticket prices are? Tune in and watch the English Premier League live to find out.…

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.…

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 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.…

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.

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.…

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.…
