Looks like Mags isn't around to get this set up, so I'll throw this together and figure out how to do a spreadsheet later (or rely upon a spreadsheet maestro like DG or spooky).

Anyway, for your choices

AFC Bournemouth
Brighton & Hove Albion
Cardiff City
Crystal Palace
Huddersfield Town
Leicester City
Manchester City
Manchester United
Newcastle United
Tottenham Hotspur

Comment with SPOILERS below and I'll get it all compiled. (Or maybe I'll outsource it.) You got till next Saturdayish to get it in.

    1. I think the easiest way to get into following the EPL is to find a team to follow and focus on them for the most part (rather than just following the league as a whole). One of the big six will be the easiest to follow (Man City, Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Tottenham) simply because they are televised the most. I don't want to steer you any particular direction, but I'm happy to answer questions about the difference teams as best as I can.

      1. heh, i’ve thought about that specifically before. it’s been hard for me to balance a traditional vs. not too hipster choice (like the toffees or whatever). i’ve heard everyone generally likes chelsea though, right?

        1. Heh. Chelsea is a fun follow. Plus they have a Russia Oligarch as owner. Nice combination of drama and meaningful games.

          I think it’s fun to have a “big” team and then maybe one or two lesser or hipster teams to follow. Watford and West Ham fill that niche quite nicely for me.

          1. Chelsea is the team for you if you want to have incredible highs every couple of years with all the time in between spent with everyone involved hating each other. They sort of remind me of the late aught Red Sox winning titles but also eating fried chicken and feuding and just generally being assholes. Oh, and there's no way they aren't Paul Manafort's favorite team if you're looking for a tiebreaker.

      2. After about 5 or so years of just watching games because its live sports in the morning, I decided to dip my toes into the water and support Leicester. I just cant bring myself to support the Big Six clubs.

  4. I'm going to have to cheer for West Ham, since I've actually seen their stadium (in the distance) when visiting my friend in Stratford. And I know which underground to take to get there (mind the gap!)
