Your Sexy Soccer Saturday Open Thread or When Will Mourinho get fired already?

It’s been one heck of a couple of weeks for ole Grumpy Pants.

First,  United lost to something called Brighton Hove and Albion:

Then, they lost 0-3 at home to Tottenham. The presser afterwards was… not good.

Now,  the pressure is fully on and the news coming out of England is that if United lose to Burnley,  Mourinho is out.

To that, I say

This guy is such an insufferable arrogant prick that he deserves all the hate he is currently getting. Barça fans still remember the incident where he poked Tito Vilanova’s eye:

What an asshole…

So, what’s happening on the TV today?  Let’s take a look at the schedule, shall we?  Remember that all times are Pacific.

So I published this post at 3:00 AM Pacific so you could pop a few beers before the 4:30 AM Leicester v Liverpool game.  Obviously, we are all watching that, right?  The decision as to the next game to watch will be a tussle between Litre_cola’s Fulham squad and Yeah Right’s Bournemouth cherries.

Since the Chelsea-Cherry match is on NBCSN, that one wins out.

Now, you could follow that up with Man City destroying Newcastle, but I think a better option would be to pop over to Fox Sports 2 or Univision and watch the Battle of BMW v Porsche.

Yes, that means I think Bayern wins 4-1.

That sets you up for Real Madrid v Leganés at 11:45 and then you can get a full scoop of Liga MX action starting at 3. Let’s not forget, though, the Hippo Special between Vasco da Gama and Santos on GolTV, also at 3.

Which brings us to…

The Balls Multi of The Week!

We got two legs out of three last time with only América letting us down by tying Querétaro instead of beating them as they should have.  So far we are down 1 betting unit.

Cash out your IRA, you’re going to want in on this one!  Here we go:

Leg #1

Manchester City to Win against Newcastle United (1.11)

Yes, we start out conservatively, but this is as good as money in the bank as it gets.

Leg #2

Real Madrid to Win against Leganés (1.12)

Real plays at home and they’ve started to gel and accommodate to life without Ronaldo.

Leg #3

Barcelona to Win against Huesca (1.083)

Barcelona is at home and Huesca, although they have been playing well, is playing in La Liga against one of the giants for the first time.

Leg #4

Vasco Da Gama and Santos to Tie (3.10)

 

Yes, it’s Hippo’s random team that seems to get him gambling wins against Pele’s and Neymar’s former team!  I say they can’t decide who is better.

 

Add them all up and what do we have?

4.19!

Jump on it!

Local news just had to cut in like, “We know it’s college football Saturday. This funeral will be over momentarily and once it wraps up, we’ll get you on to your six hours of CFB pregame programming. Sit tight. Sorry.”

blaxabbath

Given the opportunity, I would hang both Mitch McConnell and his wife. I’d do it for the Republic without even requiring compensation.

King Hippo

I like how you think!

blaxabbath

Oh John Kelly is there?

Yeah, better get another yard.

Looks like Litre and Hippo are both gonna have angry Saturdays.

Just landed in shitsville. Wtf fulham. Fuck!!!!

With the 3L33t defense CHI is putting together, it looks like they are planning another SB run on the 1A/1B arms of Rex Grossman & Kyle Orton.

King Hippo

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!! v. Bearistocrats! is the NFC Title game. I told y’all weeks ago. Just had to wait for pieces to come together.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Jax takes the Lombardi, however, after taking out NE in the AFC Champs.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I hope.

blaxabbath

Nah — the Guerrero Curse begins this year.

PIT blown out by JAX (after THE BEN barely escapes the wild card against CLE).

theeWeeBabySeamus

Bortles is the next Flacco, either way.

blaxabbath

I’m shocked at the talent that has been quietly hidden on CHI’s cellar team.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

AND NOW LARD LAD CHIMES IN.

blaxabbath

Why would OAK trade that talent?

King Hippo

Gruden didn’t want to lose a power struggle. He’s THAT guy.

Red Goalie gonna get murdered after the game match for that one?

SERIOUSLY GUYS THIS IS NOT COOL.

I think I’m missing something.
What’s up?

theeWeeBabySeamus

OK, I get it now.

you just have to see it from the perspective of a Donks homer who foretold 2018 glory for the Bearistocrats! I feel fucking GREAT!!

King Hippo

that said, you get the last laugh on me when you get to have sex this weekend

GOOOOOAAALLLLL, decilitre is sleeping, it took all my power not to scream.

King Hippo

few things in Lesser Footy more comforting than the immediate equalizer

FUCK YOUR HOPE, dire fuckwads of Huddersfield (playing 5-4-1)

theeWeeBabySeamus

Apropos of nothing, there sure are a lot of Honkeys at McCain’s Memorial.

litre_cola

Teh Mighty Fulham with a penalty save!

King Hippo

I was more impressed before I saw it was Brighton. Then again the Blues are down at home to goddamned Huddersfield, so…

There are times when I want Jurgen Klopp to contract AIDS, but then I realize that is totes unfair to AIDS.

Horatio Cornblower

Someone explain this Tecate ad to me. Is the implied suggestion that this man is willing to stab two of his friends to death with sharpened grilling tongs rather than let one of them briefly hold the 12-pack of shitty beer that the mysterious hot woman just handed him?

I know today is for Lesser Footy, but where does the Raiders letting Khalil Mack go rank on the list of “Franchise Destroying Moves”? It’s not Babe-Ruth-to-the-Yankees-for-Theater-Money”, but it’s gotta be up there.

Eh, the Buggles have two franchise defensive linemen and they still suck.

Ian Scott McCormick

Depends on the details. Two first round picks coming out of Chicago might turn into some real nice pieces. So it’s probably not as bad as giving an aggravating TV announcer $100MM.

King Hippo

I’m thinking the Bearistocrats! have seriously jumped to the front of the NFC class with RRRRRRAM IT! now, though. Two picks in the 20s doesn’t have quite teh sexy.

Ian Scott McCormick

With the draft slotting though (On top of their own high draft picks, because the Raiders are going to suck), couldn’t that be even better? First round talent, but not outrageous contracts going that way in the event that they suck.

King Hippo

hmmm, possibly.

Horatio Cornblower

The Bears probably would have traded those picks to the 49ers to move up one spot and grab a questionable prospect that the 49ers were never gonna take anyway.

King Hippo

something like this was inevitable when they brought old Gruden out of mothballs. As a Donks WOO! homer, I am tapdancing with joy.

Ian Scott McCormick

I really hate having to tolerate college football this week, it being all I have.

Horatio Cornblower

Root for UConn. It’s not so much “college football” as it is “performance art symbolizing the manifestation of abject failure”. CULTURE!

I feel badly for thinking this is funny.
