My idea of a perfect festive gift is this yankee
Well that's enough of all that. I've had enough of It's a Wonderful Life, stale mince pies and turkey sandwiches.
And while Mrs B is off to the shops to return all that rubbish that she didn't want, I'll be getting stuck into the Boxing Day coupon and I've got a cracking yankee to finish the festivities with a bang.
Firstly, I can't have Reading at home to Swansea. It's going to be a long old season for the Royals and they just can't stop shipping goals.
The Swans were great against United and they are more than capable of heading back down the M4 with a full return.
Liverpool looked the part against Fulham in their 4-0 win but I'm not going overboard about them at Stoke.
The Potters look a cracking price and can bring Brendan Rodgers' boys back down to earth with a bump.
Drop down the Championship and fill your boots on Middlesbrough at home to dismal Blackburn and Watford winning at the even more woeful Bristol City.
That'll do nicely.
