Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 36: Open Thread

relegation Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 36: Open Thread

In the biggest weekend of the Premier League so far this season, we have plenty to look forward. There’s the gigantic match tomorrow between Manchester United and Chelsea. But, for today’s purposes, let’s focus on the six crucial matches being played across England this fine day.

First, we have five games being played concurrently at 10am ET/3pm BST. Those are:

  • Aston Villa versus Wigan (massive three point opportunity for Wigan),
  • Bolton versus Sunderland (battle for mid-table),
  • Everton against Manchester City (can Everton do Liverpool a favor?),
  • Newcastle against Birmingham (Birmingham needs a point or more to reach safety),
  • West Ham versus Blackburn (the biggest match of the day, relegation battle royale),

And then, last but not least, the late game on Saturday which features Tottenham Hotspur against Blackpool (12:30pm ET/5:30pm BST). Harry Redknapp says he doesn’t want Spurs to play in the Europa League, so will this give Blackpool a chance of a lifetime?

You know the drill. Before, during or after the Premier League matches today, use the thread below to rant, rave, question or observe anything Premier League-related. Enjoy your Saturday of football, Premier League style.
