Happy Saturday, Carty-Free Crüe! Sorry the open thread is up a little late. My children finally let me sleep in for once. It’s amazing what sleeping in until 9 a.m. feels like when you realize that you haven’t done that for probably six months.
It’s a Saturday morning without a Spurs match, and it feels strange. For years I complained about the Europa League because it meant that half of Spurs’ matches were on Sunday mornings, which is bad when you’re a blog manager and like to do things on Sunday mornings like, y’know, go to church. So now there’s a Saturday with no Tottenham and I don’t know what to do with myself.
Anyway, we have football on today, and this is your open thread to talk about it. Below are the matches. Try not to get too nervous about tomorrow’s North London Derby.
Saturday Match Schedule
All times Eastern because I can’t be bothered to do the math with Daylight Savings Time ending hereabouts.
Manchester City vs. Middlesbrough, 11:00 a.m.
