Everton drew shit-ass Palace last week, while I was in Colorady. Yes, I got up super early to watch. No, I am not all angry about this. Everton got an away point, despite being forced into TWO changes - Andre Gomes (see later) injured, then DM Morgan Schneiderlin sent off
This is a bit of a footy desert for us degenerate #HAILGAMBLOR types. There is less to pick and choose from, so we tend to...force the #ACTION a bit? Anyway, happy me that Sweden, Norway, Finland, Brasil, Belarus, etc. are all kicking back into gear today. Them's is leagues I
It's Soccer Saturday and Matchday 38 of 38 in the EPL, meaning we will have a Champion today.
Hippo hands Wakezilla a note. Wakezilla reads the note
All the EPL games are on Sunday and not today? Well that's some bullshit. Way to let the Americans win, England.
Seeing how the season
Yes, that obnoxious bleating Geordie will be creaming his knickers all over Real and Barca this afternoon (2:45 EST, BeIn). Yet another el Clasico, coming off the heels of a dull as dishwater Copa tie mid-week. Same location, even.
But my blood is up, yet again, for the Merseyside Derby (Sunday,
Yes, it's time to do to Jose Mourinho what we did to Davey Moyes (what, like 5 years ago?) and finish the walking ded off. Everton (in 8th position on 15 points, +3 GD) only need a draw at Old Trafford to stay above Manure (10th, -1), and the Blues
Greetings early risers!
Morning wake and bake? It is Saturday. Check.
JV Footy? Nope.
Lesser footy? Check.
We gather here today for lesser footy only as JV footy has ended until bowl season and that schedule is spread out for a month or so. Normally King Hippo is your Saturday morning correspondent
It's with a heavy and angry heart that I write this. As I noted on NSNO.co.uk, the creatures that live under rocks have won. It is not enough for them to have Brexit and Trump, no. They had to come for my Everton, too. I can not, and will not
Jay Cutler has cleared concussion protocol, and will start Sunday versus Denver.
The Broncos will counter with (spins wheel) Trevor Siemian.
Devonta Freeman has cleared concussion protocol & will return to the Falcons active roster.
Worryingly, it's his third concussion since November 2015, pushing him close to Trent
With Thursday's pathetic home loss to Lyon, Everton are essentially out of Europe after only half of their group ties played (their 1 point representing the worst English result at this stage ever - and that's even counting Hull the season they made it whilst playing in the Championship). Combined with
The first mea culpa is a good one. I was really against what I saw as an overly sentimental, at best pointless, at worst poisonous, signing of boyhood Evertonian Wayne Rooney this summer. Yes, even on a free, with United kicking in around half his wages on the hush-hush. I
There are people who love summer. They are called tan extroverts. They can go fuck themselves with a rusty screwdriver. Summer is a humid, bug-infested sports wasteland. Forget Christmas, this is when people ought to be killing themselves in droves.
All that's left is fucking baseball. And even that cold comfort
That's right, fuckers. 2/3 of CNBC/NBCSN's Sunday triple-header are where it's at this week. Everton and Romelu Lukaku will seek to avenge a dreadful trip to Stanford Bridge when they host the League leaders (9:05, CNBC). A draw can always happen, so a Toffee result opens the door for some
