What is Boxing Day and why it's an English Premier League tradition
Boxing Day is one of the biggest days of the year in the Premier League, so what is it, and why is it so important?This season, 12 of the 20 Premier League teams have scheduled matches on Boxing Day, with another two playing the following day (complete schedule at the end of this post).
Late in the 1995-96 season Kevin Keegan lost his temper, as Newcastle and Manchester United were locked in a bitter battle for the Premier League title.
Keegan had built a dynasty at Newcastle, as the legendary English midfielder turned the Magpies into a swashbuckling attacking side during his early years as a coach and they were challenging the big boys for trophies.
After having a substantial lead at the top of the table, and over Manchester United, during the season, it was gradually chipped away during the spring. Then, comments from Sir Alex Ferguson wound Keegan up before he went on air to chat with our partners in the UK at Sky Sports after a 1-0 win at Leeds.
The phrase “I will love it if we beat them, love it” is now synonymous with Keegan, as it was clear that Sir Alex’s old tricks had worked. Man United ended up snatching the Premier League title ahead of Newcastle on the final day of the season.
