Just submitted this in a haze of whisky fumes, so if an admin can tidy up any typos, I'd appreciate it. I think the KO is 7.30 actually.
Usual GW summary has been cobbled together & posted here

Early lead for Brighton.
They've been threaten straight from the kick off.

Morning Chimpy.
It's a very pacy game. They can't possibly keep this up for 90 minutes

I don't think I can keep this up all game.
Barely got home in time for kick off.
4:30am kick offs are not fun normally.
And on New Years Day is not fun.
So tired.

Well, if you need to get some shut eye, go for it. Don't make yourself ill.

How did Begovic keep that one out?
Just barely got his foot to it.
 
2018-01-01 08:23:40 AM  
Morning all (both?). I'm an old git who was in bed before midnight (US east coast time), so it may be just us for the early game.

I'm about, got this on the radio. Brighton have the lead back almost immediately into the second half.

Is that David Pleat in the NBC commentary box? He's dreadful.

Seems we're gradually surfacing one by one.

BBC radio use him a lot, his 'endearing' quality is his complete inability to pronounce players names properly. Some of his manglings are legendary.

I remember this when he started answering a question that wasn't asked of him & the tv people pulled the plug to shut him up

Too busy to even look at the schedule for today's matches.  Naturally, the one match today I did not predict a draw ends in a draw.

MK Dons on the docket for the MIGHTY Oxford United, who have been in something of a slump over the holiday fixtures. I blame the thrashing by Wigan. Still confident in Pep as coach though.
 
2018-01-01 09:51:07 AM  
Hmmm, I think Stoke v Newcastle is the best of the next games up. It could have a big impact on who stays out of relegation trouble in the second half.

As I posted in another thread, I think the Top Six is -- once again -- set at this point: what you see is what you'll get, even in Burnley pull off the win against Liverpool. If I had to put money on it I would say that Arsenal will finish sixth. 2nd through 4th are a crapshoot.

Is there an excuse Jose *hasn't* used for a loss yet this season that involves someone not named Jose Mourinho?

Thankfully Liverpool have spared our blurry eyed hungover carcasses & NOT opted for the Fukushima Orange get up today

I do recall him using the "Only one team wanted to win" excuse not so long ago. But the sea of BS he comes out with kind of drowns stuff like that out

Mignolet with the captain armband. Egad.

There are at least two other people on that starting XI who I'd put the armband on ahead of Mignolet... not to mention 1 or 2 other people on the list of subs I'd start ahead of who Klopp started.

They've got Everton in the FA cup on Friday. He's going to need to rest some people I guess

I would have thought the armband would have been on Can or Lallama
