Showdown Saturday

Our marketing department is working overtime on alliteration with its "Showdown Saturday" description of today's match against Reading. Only it's a bit like that episode of Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads? where they see the headline "England F…" and  spend all day working out possible headlines such as England fiasco, England fail, England five, etc. I keep thinking of alternative billings such as Shambolic Saturday, Shameful Saturday, Slowdown Saturday and Shoddy Saturday although in my more optimistic moments it's Super Saturday, Successful Saturday and Soaraway Saturday.  And as for the word Showdown,  I keep thinking of Big Sam in a Stetson drawing a gun at the OK Ken's Cafe…
