As supporters, we would all love to be able to watch every minute of our team’s games, and thanks to the wonders of worldwide television broadcasts, we often can.
Whilst today’s game against Liverpool isn’t being broadcast on British television, there are a number of Australian, American and Canadian networks who will be covering the fixture, which, if you’re lucky enough to have access to, should provide you with a way of seeing us attempt to halt Jurgen Klopp’s as of yet unbeaten run as Liverpool boss.
Kicking off at exactly the same time as the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, the thoughts of most neutral football fans is likely to be focussed away from Anfield, but for fans of both the Reds and the Eagles, events on Merseyside will be of paramount importance.
Taking place on a Sunday as a direct consequence of Liverpool’s recent trip to play Rubin Kazan, Jurgen Klopp’s players have been granted an extra 24 hours to recover from the journey, not that they’re likely to be as sharp as our own squad, who have not played a competitive minute since their impressive 0-0 draw against Manchester United at Selhurst Park last weekend.
Long gone are the days when the only way to follow your side was to frantically check teletext in the hope of seeing a quick glimpse of the latest score, with the use of twitter, alongside countless other forms of social media broadening the horizons of millions who hold a genuine interest in the beautiful game.
If you’re lucky enough to have access to one of the channels broadcasting the game from the link above, let’s just hope that you’re toasting a massive three points for Crystal Palace at 6pm this evening.
