I am not writing any damned manifesto (who the fuck would read it?) but my descent into Quarantine Madness continues unabated.
We are now in simulated Season Three of the Bernard Gilkey era leading Everton Football Club. First, we finished our usual, solid 8th. I had to spend most of my
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
Oh my cats, y'all. Cue Ron Paul, because It's Happening! Mikel Arteta (who may be on the touchline this am for the Gooners) thinks he's too good to manage Everton. But not Italian coaching legend Carlo Ancelotti (i.e., Don Carlo). He will make his managerial debut on Boxing Day, but
No doubt by now, you've heard a bit about the above-pictured handsome devil (sorry about the lack of Bama/Bayou Bengals cheerleaders, you'll live). Enough to know NOT to Google the horrific injury he suffered, resulting from a snidey (but not malicious) Son Heung-min tackle.
All the human emotion and forgiveness talk
This past Thursday, I had my "every 5 weeks" haircut, rescheduled to 1:30. I arrived before my stylist was back from lunch (fuck you, what kind of Philistine DOESN'T use a stylist??), so I walked around the corner to get a libation (as I am back off solid food). As
Everton drew shit-ass Palace last week, while I was in Colorady. Yes, I got up super early to watch. No, I am not all angry about this. Everton got an away point, despite being forced into TWO changes - Andre Gomes (see later) injured, then DM Morgan Schneiderlin sent off
This is a bit of a footy desert for us degenerate #HAILGAMBLOR types. There is less to pick and choose from, so we tend to...force the #ACTION a bit? Anyway, happy me that Sweden, Norway, Finland, Brasil, Belarus, etc. are all kicking back into gear today. Them's is leagues I
It's Soccer Saturday and Matchday 38 of 38 in the EPL, meaning we will have a Champion today.
Hippo hands Wakezilla a note. Wakezilla reads the note
All the EPL games are on Sunday and not today? Well that's some bullshit. Way to let the Americans win, England.
Seeing how the season
Yes, that obnoxious bleating Geordie will be creaming his knickers all over Real and Barca this afternoon (2:45 EST, BeIn). Yet another el Clasico, coming off the heels of a dull as dishwater Copa tie mid-week. Same location, even.
But my blood is up, yet again, for the Merseyside Derby (Sunday,
Yes, it's time to do to Jose Mourinho what we did to Davey Moyes (what, like 5 years ago?) and finish the walking ded off. Everton (in 8th position on 15 points, +3 GD) only need a draw at Old Trafford to stay above Manure (10th, -1), and the Blues
Greetings early risers!
Morning wake and bake? It is Saturday. Check.
JV Footy? Nope.
Lesser footy? Check.
We gather here today for lesser footy only as JV footy has ended until bowl season and that schedule is spread out for a month or so. Normally King Hippo is your Saturday morning correspondent
It's with a heavy and angry heart that I write this. As I noted on NSNO.co.uk, the creatures that live under rocks have won. It is not enough for them to have Brexit and Trump, no. They had to come for my Everton, too. I can not, and will not
