Soccer fans are known to love beer. Premier League fans, especially. So drink in style with a set of fancy beer glasses. No more drinking out of the can/bottle. Plus, the different shapes and sizes of glass function to make one look like a classy person. People will take one's opinions more seriously if one is drinking beer out of a fancy glass.
The worst part of being a Premier League fan in America is getting up early on weekends. Getting up early on weekends is dumb and bad. Make it a little less dumb and bad with a soccer ball alarm clock. Sure, you could use your phone to wake yourself up, but keeping your phone in your bedroom is a sure-fire way to turn yourself into a zombie. So get an alarm clock. A soccer ball one.
One thing Premier League fans are known to enjoy is watching the Premier League. Unfortunately, all the different streaming services and cable companies and their nonsense makes the process leading up to watching the Premier League extremely stressful. Take all the stress out with NBC Gold, which is a bad streaming service but we've got limited options, here. It's the Premier League one, is the nicest thing we can say about it. But hey, it IS the Premier League one.
Manchester United's class of '92 is one of the most famous academy classes in football history. Everyone knows about Mark Bosnich, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers, but not everyone knows about Adrian Doherty, who might have been the best of the bunch if injuries hadn't cut his career tragically short.
Watching soccer is the best part of being a Premier League fan, so you should try to watch soccer on the best possible television, like this model from LG. Traits that make for a good television: largeness of screen, high definition, and that's it. Get yourself a large-screen, high definition television if you haven't already.
The Blizzard contains some of the best soccer writing in the world. Articles in The Blizzard are creative, analytical, inquisitive, smart and fun. The Blizzard will keep your attention when there aren't any games going on, which is most of the time.
That "getting up early on weekends" thing rears its ugly head again. Many people who get up early on weekends need coffee before they can function. Drip coffee makers are trash, coffee shops are expensive and involve going outside and Starbucks has not yet taken the step of putting one in every single house. So, a French Press. The coffee is good, they're easy to clean and they're French so you can pretend to be classy.
Now go out there and buy some stuff!
