Did you enjoy that day off from football watching duty and got plenty of family time in? Good, now that’s sorted we can dive right back in to, Suarez, strike rates, and Santa’s January wishlist.
In section 1 we talk about the big game of Boxing Day, as Liverpool travelled to Manchester City. A tight affair that was steeped in controversy, we wask; was Brendan Rodgers right to criticse Lee Mason so publicly? Would you keep your cool in the face of such questions after a narrow defeat or blast those to blame in black?
We also look at Women’s football (not like that), and question Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s claims the two sexes cannot be compared sportingly. There’s a power-cut at Leicester’s King Power stadium, and more football to stew over, including Stoke’s red noses and red cards, Cardiff saying ‘Goodbye Mackay’, and Sunderland winning away!
As always, the discussion just isn’t as fun without you guys, so leave comments, thoughts, and bad Christmas jokes (we know you have them) at the bottom.
