Football time

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today. We're back again with another day of Premier League action and it's a real doozy.

First up Newcastle host Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear derby, where I hope you'll join me in prayer for the health and safety of any horses in the area. After ending Chelsea's invincible season, Newcastle have conceded four goals in each of their last two matches. Meanwhile Sunderland are coming off a five game winless streak where they've managed only one goal from open play. This match should finally answer the question: What happens when a movable object meets a stoppable force? Riveting stuff.

In the late game, Arsenal head to Anfield in a match that will almost surely piss off Spurs supporters no matter the result. If you're still feeling positive after yesterday's Spurs victory, this is the match that's sure to remind you that everything is probably terrible in the world of football.

Elsewhere, other football matches are happening in other leagues, but who are we kidding you're not going to watch any of them.

So come join us and chat about the day's action. Please play nice with each other, and as always, no links to illegal streams.
