Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 28: Open Thread

Ryan Giggs will play his 1,000th senior appearance today (as long as Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t spoil the plot). If he does play for the Red Devils, it’ll be 22 years to the day when he made his debut for United on March 2, 1991.

I, and many others, thought that Giggsy would be making his 1,000th appearance for United today. In fact, he’s made 931 for Manchester United, 64 for Wales and four for Great Britain. If only he had played more for Wales instead of pulling out of matches (cough, cough), he would have hit the 1,000 mark much sooner.

But full credit to Giggs, who has been a positive role model and inspiration to the game.

As an aside, only 3 players have played in the Premier League aged 42 or older. Those are goalkeepers John Burridge, Alec Chamberlain and Steve Ogrizovic. Giggs will be 40 in November.

With no early kick-off today, we have seven matches kicking off simultaneously at 10am ET/9am PT/3pm UK time, so you have time to rest this morning before those games. And then there’s one late kick-off with Wigan against Liverpool (12:30pm ET on FOX Soccer, for readers in the United States).

The 10am ET/3pm UK kickoffs are:

Manchester United vs Norwich
Chelsea vs West Brom
Swansea vs Newcastle
Southampton vs QPR
Everton vs Reading
Stoke vs West Ham
Sunderland vs Fulham

Check out the TV and Internet schedule to find out where you can watch each match live.

Have a wonderful Saturday!
