Weekend football open thread

Stop bothering me, the football's on!

Happy football day, Spurs fans! There's a lot going on between now and Monday evening. Not only are there a full slate of EPL offerings to choose from, but the Euro 2016 Championship draw will be held to day at noon Eastern, and Monday we can look forward to the Europa League draw where Spurs will invariably draw Dortmund!

Alas, the weekend's football offerings don't look nearly as compelling as they did last week, nor do the prospects of a top four upset. Manchester City are hosting a manager-less Swansea City, Arsenal are away to rudderless and floundering Aston Villa, and Liverpool host West Brom. The most compelling match of the weekend fixtures might just be Manchester United visiting Bournemouth, although to be fair Monday's Leicester - Chelsea match looks tasty.

Anyway, this here's your open thread for the weekend matches. Use it, love it, treat it gently.
