The Community Shield is the fake opening of the EPL season. The annual pre-season friendly between the winner of the league and the winner of the FA Cup, it's supposed to mean something and even has a shiny plate that goes to the winner, and people pretend to care about it but mostly it's just a warm-up to the actual season that starts next weekend.
And from a Tottenham perspective there aren't two teams that you'd like to see obliterated by a meteor than these two.Arsenal and Chelsea don't exactly like each other much either, but if there's ever a match where you as a Spurs fan would like to see the two teams sucked into a sinkhole Gotham style (note, that's my Steelers' Hines Ward that survives, suck it haters), it's this one.
But that's okay, because it's still football, which means the season starts next weekend. So it's okay to watch it. This here is your open thread. The usual match thread rules apply.
