A View From Row Z: Wake Up and Smell the Football

Breakfast of champions, or breakfast of Andy Carroll?

You’ve gotta get up early to catch the big clashes this weekend.

Liverpool and Arsenal are under way at Anfield in the fine English weather and Bayern Munich are still sniffing at top spot in Germany, taking on Leverkusen at 9:30.

And if you hear bombs going off tomorrow, don’t worry, it’s not World War III.

It’s just the Rome Derby. Guaranteed to be a Serie A match that won’t put you back to sleep.

And for the West Coasters, Sunday morning also sees a chastened Spurs side welcome SAF’s Manchester United.

The North Londoners trouncing last week could cause trouble for their visitors who must continue to keep pace with their city rivals, who coincidentally take on a dour Bolton side early today.

I just wish Swansea were in action. I’ve been holding onto an early bird gets the Vorm joke all season.

Full fixture list after the jump.

  1. Dammit Liverpool. I know I make fun of you all the time but come on. Score a fucking penalty

  2. Luis Suarez may have the most punchable face in the world. Every time I see him I want to hit him.

  3. Matchcast suggests, he turned his head into an oncoming Henderson:

    “Replays of the collision show that is was a purely accidental collision. Arteta blindly turned into Henderson as the Liverpool man was running past him”

  4. Why all the hate for the English breakfast. I think it looks awesome and I’m a vegetarian. Maybe I’m just in a good mood for some reason. Also, I want to have RvP’s babies.

  5. Mildly annoyed that fantasy EPL listed RVP as “Doubtful – 75% chance of playing” so I set Silva as my captain, and he’s on the bench.

  6. Thanks Liverpool and Chelsea for shitting the bed. I guess nobody’s gonna do us any favors. Need to grab a win tomorrow

  7. Independiente down 1-0 at home, game stopped after 30 min due to problems with stadium lighting. I’d make a snide patronizing remark about South America, but then the Niners couldn’t keep the lights on at Candlestick last season one night.

  8. Also, listening to the argentine radio broadcast of this game on my phone is more fun than I imagined.

  9. So much fucking bullshit. United had the ball for all of 2 minutes that half, and that bullshit happens. That’s the difference between a title challenge and playing for fourth. I wish Spurs could make the jump.

  10. So nice of Spurs to throw United a farewell party as they embark on a 7 week tour of the Blighted Half of the Prem.
