Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 27: Open Thread

It’s been a very long time since the margin of difference in talent between Manchester United and Manchester City has been this thin. Whatever happens, it’s going to be a very close game with so much on the line. A win for City will catapult their league title ambitions. A win for United will move them into pole position to win the league. A draw will satisfy both teams. I can’t wait.

Before, during and after today’s Premier League matches, use the comments section below as an open forum to post questions, observations and rants.

In addition to United against City, there are several more tantalizing matches on board including Sunderland against Spurs, Arsenal versus Wolves (can Mick McCarthy’s side continue their amazing run of form against the Big Four?), Liverpool against Wigan (which will be a good test to see if Liverpool can play as well against lower teams in the table; Wigan meanwhile will be desperate for at least a point), Blackburn against Newcastle (when it’s Blackpool, there are usually plenty of goals in store), West Brom versus West Ham (can the Hammers continue to get precious points?), Birmingham against Stoke (which will be a close match, for sure) and, last but not least, Blackburn against Newcastle (will the Magpies still be flying high since last Saturday)?

  1. With 3 televised fixtures at 7am (PST); Arsenal v Wolves (ESPN2), Sunderland v Spurs (FSC) & Liverpool v Wigan (FS+), today is a good day to record the ESPN2 broadcast. Unless of course, you enjoy Ian Darke’s spoilers.

    1. I agree NTN.

      As for the starting line-ups for City and United, they look pretty defensive in posture to me. Dzeko and Berbatov on the bench. Rooney and Tevez up front. Looks like the battle will be fought out in midfield. Let’s hope for an early goal to open things up a bit.

      The Gaffer

      1. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to stay away from here as well after the Manchester Derby. I’ll be watching Sunderland v Spurs live while my dvr records the Gunners. This means, my dvr won’t be able to record the live broadcast of Liverpool v Wigan on FS+. I’ll have to wait for the 6pm (PDT) replay. At some point this evening, I’ll finally Arsenal v Wolves. Maybe after the Fedor fight.

  2. The on-screen guide for FSC on Dish Network is wrong. It has Sunderland v Spurs scheduled for both 7am & 9:30am (PDT). What fixture is FSC actually broadcasting at 7am?

      1. but he’s not english, and when something is done by an english player it is automatically better than the same action from a non english player

  3. Blackpool vs. Villa btw. Its been an ok game, Gabby scored his second of the season. has put on a decent job so far this weekend. Invest in Akamai.
