Premier League Boxing Day, Gameweek 19: Open Thread
If you had to pick one day out of the year that’s the best day to watch Premier League soccer, today is it. The next best day is the final day of the season. But today there’s everything to play for on a festive day just one day after you hopefully had a wonderful Christmas.
Today is also one of those days when most of us probably would love to be living in Britain. It’s a day off work that you either spend mostly in the pub, or at the football ground watching your favorite club play. But luckily for the rest of us, thanks to the wonders of television and the Internet, we have an incredible nine Premier League matches to choose from all of which will be shown live. It’s just a shame that Arsenal spoiled the festivities by postponing their game against West Ham due to the Tube strike.
