Being an American and all, I have no idea where any English cities are. So I just looked up all of your club's home cities. Looks like the bulk of them are in the London and Manchester/Liverpool area. Seems the outliers are Sunderland, Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Blackburn, West Brom and Birmingham. But it doesn't look like any city is more than 200 miles from London. Chicago and Green Bay are 185 miles apart/Chicago and Detroit are 235 miles apart. Also, I didn't see anything in southwest England. Are there population centers/clubs there?

Yeah, Bristol.  They have two teams Bristol City and Bristol Rovers - neither of whom are in the Premiership.  Blackburn isn't really an outlier - it's in the North West near Liverpool and Manchester.

Middlesboro, Newcastle and SUnderland are all in the North East.

West Brom and Villa are in the Midlands around Birmingham (2nd biggest city after London).  As are Wolves, Birmingham and a few other smaller clubs.

The North West (Liverpool/Manchester/Lancashire) , North East (Tyne & Wear), Midlands (Birmingham) and Yorkshire are the main hotbeds for football in England)

Thanks guys! Glad to see you stop by, britbox. There's always room for another if you'd like to join. If you start next week, you can draw even with Chris  :laugh-bounce:

I believe Murrayfan is a fellow red judging by his signature.  I'd expect nothing less than top of the table.

Look forward to joining in!.

A point at a top 5/6 team like Villa is a much better point than at home to Newcastle, but yes unfortunately we failed to take advantage of that. However, we've now played 5 of the other top teams away from home in Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Villa and Everton so we've got easier away games to come and all those lot to come to Old Trafford  :)>>>>

Yes Sid, you keep showing me the table but I think you should look closely at how many games we've played. We've played 13 not 31, maybe you're getting your numbers the wrong way round and all excited  :)~
