At the start of every season, the Fox Soccer Report has their on-air staff try to guess how the different clubs will finish in the Premier League table. The clueless and Canadian group of TV talent never have any idea what is going on and always end up scratching their heads at the end of the season when Liverpool finishes outside the top two. Still, even someone like the show’s analyst Bobby McMahon, who does know what he’s talking about most of the time, gets the end-of-season blushes when his predictions turn out to be wrong. Can one really predict what will happen in such a crazy (see the chicken) and uncertain league like the EPL? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the writers here at FourFiveTwo can’t give it a shot and try to look like we know what we’re talking about!

Luis Suarez and John Terry have been hogging all the soccer press lately, including the territory usually reserved for leagues besides the vaunted EPL.
That’s right, English football has been getting into the racism game lately, but Serie A fans won’t cede their ground so easily.
While many will hastily claim the EPL superior in terms of both quality and tolerance, these latest episodes suggest much more equality on that latter, ignominious front than Serie A’s detractors have ever cared to admit.
As two of Italy’s most supported sides, Milan and Napoli, get set to face English opposition in the Champions League Round of 16, now seems as good a time as any to look into the current state of razzismo in Serie A and how it compares to the situation in England.
