Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 32: Open Thread

number 32 Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 32: Open Thread

We have seven Premier League matches in store on this, the seventh of April, today. Kicking off gameweek 32 is the early kick-off between Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur at the Stadium of Light. It’s a match between two men who have had aspirations of becoming England manager. O’Neill was allegedly turned down as a prospect for the England manager job a few years ago because of his poor PowerPoint presentation skills. Today’s a chance to show whether he can out-master Harry Redknapp in the department where it really matters — the win column.

At 10am ET/3pm UK time, there are five Premier League matches kicking off at the same time. Chelsea plays Wigan at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool plays Aston Villa at Anfield, West Brom takes on Blackburn at the Hawthorns, Norwich battles Everton at Carrow Road, and — last but not least — Bolton is against Fulham at the Reebok Stadium. Four of those five games have implications on the relegation battle, while three of the games have teams battling for qualification to Europe. Expect fireworks in most of those matches.

Finally today we have the late kick-off between Stoke City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. If Terry Connor’s side has any hope of staying in the top flight next season, the club has to get at least a draw out of this match. Even if Wolves get an early goal, we’ve seen so many times this season that they’re unable to keep a solid defense. This one could get ugly.

Before, during and after today’s Premier League matches, share your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.

Enjoy your football!
