TV clash of the titans
THE thrill of Theresa May taking on Jeremy Corbyn in a soundbite-tothe-death TV clash might have perked up those few souls not sent into deep somnolence by the incessant B-word.
But for those of us happy to invite Europeans into England to liven up our domestic lives (no, not you, Mr Farage), just look at what’s in store as televisual delights this week...
Emery, Pochettino, Klopp, Guardiola, Mourinho and Sarri, all in one week of televised footie – and some of them even more than once.
Today’s derby double-header at the Emirates and Anfield are nearperfect storms.
Apart from Jurgen being unable to romantically intone, “We’ll always have Paris”, after the midweek muddle, the two North and South contests are fairly even, the tensions as high as ever and the quest for bragging rights as potent. It’s game on! The Citeh behemoth should crush its way through the Hornets’ nest on
Tuesday before Pep ponders how he should dismantle the Chelsea defence on Saturday evening.
But let’s not forget the Crate Upender, who takes on Senor Emery in a midweek battle that used to be a title-decider, but is now more for placings among the also-rans.
We can take a fair guess at how all those clashes will turn out – and still have a far better idea than May and Corbyn do in their own conundrum.
