Oh my LAWD, they’s a bunch of Lesser Footy going down. Who says the Day After Christmas is depressing? I don’t have to work, and we get a de facto Second Lesser Saturday. I’ll fookin’ take it, like.
Spurs and Brighton kick us off bright and early (yes, I set my alarm – 7:30, NBCSN). One might think Mourinho would take out his frustration over Chelsea kicking his teeth in last weekend – but Trashbirds have been a tough out most of the season. I wouldn’t rule out their stealing at least a point here.
Southampton at Chelski is your NBCSN broadcast choice for the 10:00 window. I cry bullshit – a manager the calibre of Carlo Ancelotti makes his debut for Everton (home to Burnley, 10:00, NBC Gold), and you don’t focus on that. SHAME. I would say they’d never do that with an asshole London club…but Arsenal/Bournemouth (Horatio/yeah right Derby!!!) is in the same boat. Might have to have both laptops running this window.
At least we get an afternoon doubleheader, meaning 4 match windows to stuff oneself with. I have no idea how Newcastle have managed to sneak into the top half, but there they are nonetheless. They get a Boxing Day trip to Old Trafford (12:30, NBCSN) and one never knows what to expect from Ole’s United.
Unquestionably the match of the day – 1st place Redshite visiting (albeit distant) 2nd position Leicester. I will watch it despite both rancid cunts on the touchline, and I expect Man City to be in silver medal position after their Friday clash with Wolves (2:45, NBCSN). But nobody is catching the blasted Reds, to Hippo’s chagrin.
The picture above? My kids put Kruger’s stern, leader face on top of…what I think is a picture of Alexander the Great? Anyway, it’s cool as fuck and I figured I would share.
