New Year's Day football
We’ve got West Brom at home tomorrow, while Southampton and Palace are up against each other today and Swansea host Spurs. Today’s fixtures include a couple of interest to us. A bit of a crap new year in terms of results relevant to us, but it’s so tight down there that things can change quickly. This is also the time of year when the strength and depth of a squad starts really showing itself, and when a couple of injuries can significantly undermine weaker teams’ first choice 11s.

BRIGHTON vs BOURNEMOUTH (1230 ko)
Both sides have injury concerns. Brighton’s recent home form hasn’t bene great in terms of goals and wins, but Bournemouth’s form has been inconsistent. Their last away win was nearly two months ago. I suppose we’d want a draw, with a home win a strong second. Draw.

BURNLEY vs LIVERPOOL
The pick of today’s games sees high-flying Burnley looking to reduce their opponents’ advantage over them to four points. Liverpool may be without Mo Salah, who was injured in their last game. The obvious advantage the Reds have over Burnley is skill, but they will have to work hard to break down an always disciplined and industrious Burnley team that starts the year full of confidence. It will be interesting to see what strategies the two managers employ, but you’d expect both to go full out for maximum points. Should be a cracker. Away win.

LEICESTER vs HUDDERSFIELD
Leicester lead the pack chasing eighth spot, but are still just nine points above the relegation zone. They have also collected only a single point from their last four league outings. Plucky Huddersfield are three points behind their hosts and have shown themselves capable of turning tables on the footballing hierarchy. Intriguing, but this is where Leicester should get their season back on track. Home win.

STOKE vs NEWCASTLE
It won’t be long before squeaky bums become audible in both the Potteries and the north-east, to join those in Stratford, the midlands and southwest Wales. This is another one where both teams will fancy their chances and much will depend on who shows the greater desire. Draw.

EVERTON vs MAN UTD (1730 ko)
I wonder what Christmas was like in the Mourinho household – more than the usual scowls, pouts and walking-on-eggshell situations, you’d think. Mr Grumpy Chops might have chosen a different opponent for this game, while BFS will want to put his first defeat as Everton boss behind him quickly. Lukaka and Ibrahimovic are among Man Utd’s wounded, which may offer a golden opportunity to Wayne Rooney to extend new year’s greetings to his former employer. Draw.

Lingard, as 'Carra' just said, looking unrecognisable for the Mancs. Used to ask myself how comes he gets a game for them.

As for Keane, how much did the blue scum pay for him?

Re: New Year's Day football
Easy answer to that, Hughie-louis - just set attainable standards - like what our board do.

Re: New Year's Day football
HUGHES: The players are frustrated, disappointed, but that's a consequence of the high standards that I've set here.

Yeah, sky high

Like we were glad Moyes threw the Arsenal cup game so we could lose to newcastle too you mean?

Do you think it’d be good to see us go down by your own measure, marty?

Few things worse than listening to those manc cunts singing.

Meanwhile, Mark Hughes, questioned about his job after the match, actually spoke the words "who else is going to do it." FOMB.

Re: New Year's Day football
We have seen this before.
Resting players for another game by small teams ALWAYS goes tits up.
Footballers should play football. If they cant play every 3 days they should get another job.

Re: New Year's Day football

Re: New Year's Day football
I hope Stoke keep hold of Mark Hughes so that he can take them down.

From the BBC, at half time during the 3 o'clock fixtures:

"The good news is, if you've just woken up on your sofa, absolutely smashed from last night, you've missed absolutely nothing."

Scrappy goal - Glen Murray showing his class by pretending to be injured during the goal mouth scramble. Might have been better spending his time helping his team rather than acting.

Re: New Year's Day football
Brighton number 17 down with a head injury for 10-15 seconds before that goal. I appreciate that the normal rules of football don't apply to Bournemouth, but surely the ref is meant to stop there?

Davy Propper should be sent off there

Re: New Year's Day football
Smith of Bournemouth just thrown himself to the ground in the Brighton box with absolutely no contact which didn't fool the ref. Smith appealed for a pen. No action taken !!

2-1 Brighton? I see the first gift horse is already lining up for us to kick in the bollocks.

1-1 at half-time in Brighton vs Bournemouth.

As it stands, that puts Bournemouth two points and four places above us, having played two more.Brighton in 11th on 25 points.
