With 19:00 on a Friday come and gone, it falls to me to do forza's job.
The early fixture on Saturday is an intriguing one, with a Manchester City reeling from their encounter with the Muelljadin meeting their bogey side, a Barry-less Everton. You'd fancy City to win in a goal bonanza but you really wouldn't take any kind of bet on that one. Cardiff Newcastle is the pick from the three o' clock games whilst United beat Sunderland for the 79th consecutive time later on.
On Sunday we have the reigning European conquerers returning to do their domestic duties. WHO will succumb to the rigours of the modern game? Probably all of Arsenal, Swansea, Spurs and Chelsea will see out narrow, boring wins, let's be brutally honest.
Elsewhere Bayern Munich meet leaders Bayer Leverkusen whilst Roma travel to Inter Milan. A bunch of shit nobody cares about happens in the bowels of the English game.
