I’ve missed Premier League so bad. Yeah, I know it’s only been two weeks, but international breaks are booooring. It seems like we only had the last one about three weeks ago and then – boom! – we get another one. I’ve just checked and the next one is November 13th. In a month’s time. Boo!
I understand that World Cup Qualifiers are important, and I get that they’ve got to be crammed in because of the Covid situation last year, but there must be a better way. It’s not fair on the clubs. How can you get a run of form going when you know you’ve got no matches for a fortnight next month?
Now, international football can be good – great, even – and I love international tournaments as much as the next person, but I struggle to get excited for the Premier League (and the Championship, and some lower league teams – it wasn’t too long ago that my local team, Nuneaton Borough, had matches postponed due to international call-ups) having a break so England can play Andorra and Hungary. And not even win them both.
So, Premier League football is back for four matches before another two weeks break where England will play Albania and San Marino. What joy. I despair.
Anyway, this weekend’s games look pretty tasty. Watford vs Liverpool looks like it’ll have plenty of goals. Leicester vs Manchester United should be a good one. And Newcastle vs Spurs will be one to watch given Newcastle’s recent takeover.
It’s crazy how much money the Newcastle owners have got. Literally (a lot) more than all the other Premier League owners combined. I don’t think anyone should have that much money. I mean fair play, I wouldn’t say no, but come on, it’s a balance isn’t it? If you’re that rich, there’s a lot of people who are really poor. I’d like to think I’d be more philanthropic, more generous, if I was so rich. Of course, buying Newcastle is a charitable action, one which I probably wouldn’t do, but you know what I mean. Also, rumours that Mike Ashley is looking at buying Derby County is a tough one for Rams fans. Not entirely sure which side of that one I’d be on, to be honest. It’s horrible what’s happened to that club.
Time for me to get going, lots of stuff to be getting on. Thanks for dropping by.
