Old Firm Derby and West Brom vs Newcastle United: Open Thread

the hawthorns west brom Old Firm Derby and West Brom vs Newcastle United: Open Thread

It’s not often that we talk about Scottish Premier League football, but we’re faced with three realities. One, the Old Firm Derby is on today (8am ET). Two, FOX Soccer is televising the game live. And three, there is only one Premier League match on today, so there isn’t a lot to talk about.

West Bromwich Albion against Newcastle United (11am ET) should be a very enjoyable match to watch after a relatively uneventful Saturday in the Premier League. Both Roy Hodgson and Alan Pardew have done a brilliant job at their respective club this season, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a few goals in store from this match.

Before, during or after today’s Old Firm Derby and solitary Premier League match, post your observations, questions, rants and raves in the comments section below.

  1. Guy says:

    Well, the Old Firm Derby was a good watch. Great spirit and result for a club going through hell. The SPL may not be the EPL, but you’ll not see many better runs and goals than Aluko’s, in any league.

  2. Todd says:

    Newcastle are just too much for WBA. Ben Arfa’s 2nd goal was quite impressive, those 3 are ripping ‘em apart.

  3. Dan Striker says:

    Newcastle surprise me almost on a weekly basis – I keep on expecting them to drop down the table but they are still there doing it every week.
