Saturday Open Thread: Counting Down the Seconds Edition

New, comments

A busy day in the Premier League and beyond as we try to find ways to distract ourselves from counting down the seconds until kickoff tomorrow.

Blah blah blah there's things happening today but I think we're all in agreement that tomorrow should be right now and we've already waited long enough. The early kickoff today (12:45PM GMT/8:45AM EST) has Manchester City visiting Hull City, while the host of 3:00PM GMT/11:00AM EST matches includes...nothing terribly captivating. Aston Villa host Chelsea in the late start (5:30PM GMT/1:30PM EST), which holds a small chance of an upset if Villa manage to scrape a goal or two early.

Suso should get some minutes as Almeria visit Rayo Vallecano in La Liga (5:00PM GMT/1:00PM EST), while three of Germany's top four are in action, highlighted by Bayer Leverkusen's trip to Bayern Munich (5:30PM GMT/1:30PM EST). MLS has a busy day as well, with the new(ish)-look Toronto FC traveling to Seattle in the day's most intriguing matchup (8:30PM GMT/4:30PM EST) as Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe get starts for their new club.
