Weekend Futbol/Soccer Open Thread



by Alex

Big news this weekend is the Manchester Derby. Carlos Tevez may be gone from the Premier League, but the rivalry remains.

Also in the Premier League this week:

Battle at the Bottom: 19th West Brom vs 20th Sunderland

Chelsea vs Fulham – Are the Blues “a club in crisis?”

Arsenal vs Stoke – always a contentious affair


In La Liga, it’s Barcelona vs Rayo and Real Madrid vs Getafe. If you’ve never seen it, here’s Getafe’s great recruitment video: Zombies Calientes del Getafe (NSFW)

    Great win by Everton.

    But …

    I wonder about Lukaku returning to the game after being knocked out.

    That would likely be criticized if it was the NFL or NHL.

    John Farrell clinches division against his old team and TFC hires a 31 year-old GM with no experience. Just another day in Toronto sports.

    2 excellent interviews by Sid (Friday,3pm). First a surprisingly tough interview with the new TFC GM. Next a good interview with Jon Champion on tomorrow’s Manchester Derby which is on Sportsnet. Great job by Sid.
