Our long string of days with at least one Premier League match (and a BD Live Chat) is set to come to an end today. We start the day with two frustrating bits of news:

  • David De Gea is on the bench for the match against Newcastle United. This is hardly a shock but I am at least a little bit surprised that Sir Alex has decided to potentially undermine the confidence of his expensive youngster. I'm more frustrated for fantasy reasons but this seems like a poor football decision as well.
  • On the bright side, we get to see Landon Donovan in a Premier League match for the first time in a couple of seasons. This is very exciting for Everton supporters who need a scorer and for us Americans who always enjoy seeing how our best stack up against the competition in the Prem. The downside? Despite this deal having been done for quite some time, Yahoo STILL doesn't have Donovan in the system. We knew it would happen this way but that doesn't make it any less frustrating.

Enjoy the chat and I'll be involved as I have a few minutes here and there between working at my real job.
