Saturday Open Thread: Deadline Day Hangover Edition

New, comments

If you're doing it correctly, you will still be half-drunk when you read this. Good thing there's the football to bring you back to earth, with the Tyne-Wear Derby kicking off the day and a number of other interesting fixtures to keep an eye on.

All these shiny new toys set to take part in shiny new locations (unless it's Stoke, then it's neither shiny nor new), and likely that only a few will be actually playing on the day. No matter, because the football's got more than enough to keep your hungover mind occupied--the typically volatile Tyne-Wear Derby starts the day off in style at St. James' Park, where Fabio Borini will look to continue his strong run of form under Gus Poyet, while Everton host an improving Aston Villa side that's been very good away from home and tricky away fixtures await Spurs (at Hull City) and Manchester United (at Stoke).

There's continental happenings to keep track of as well, and you can check out ESPNFC's live scores page or LiveSoccerTV, which has a schedule along with live and repeat viewings on offer through legal providers.
