    anyone know if there’s a way to watch AS Monaco’s game this weekend? (I assume Freddy’s gonna get at least some time) Online maybe?

  2. Isaac says:

    Yay.

  3. Cosmos Forever says:

    Ives, I love this weekly feature! Makes it simple for a lazy guy like me to get his soccer viewing schedule down.

  4. anon_e_moose says:

    Schalke v. Bremen looks like the best matchup.

    For the canadians out there,

    New England Revolution at Toronto FC(Sportsnet)

    Sunderland at Tottenham(Sportsnet)

    West Ham United at Manchester City(The Score)

    SAT,2pm-LeHavre v. Marseille(TV5)

  5. Steven says:

    Any chance the Mexican league matches will make this list? Easy for me to ask, of course, I’m not doing the much-appreciated work :-).

  6. Richard says:

    I’m surprised Gol TV isn’t showing the Italian Super Cup (Roma-Inter)

  7. no cable says:

    Anyone have a quick opinion on the merits of FSC broadband vs. Setatna broadband? For someone limited to online viewing, which is the better deal/quality and why? Thanks.

  8. A.S. says:

    The first leg of the Spanish Super Cup between Valencia and RM last week was an excellent game. I’m certainly going to watch the second leg.

  9. Erik Abarca says:

    Was up guys, check out link to villarrealcf.es…. there is a video interview with Jozy Altidore, he is the 3rd interview, first interview is with Rossi. The site also mentions he’s on tonight’s roster against Odinese of the Italian league. From what i get reading the site and watching the show, they r big on Jozy. They think he can make a impact right away.

  10. Brant says:

    why does Setanta cost so damn much? Do they not want people to actually watch their games?

  11. Michael F. says:

    Sat

    Setanta 7:30 AM Charlton vs. Reading

    Setanta 9:30 AM Liverpool vs. Middlesborough

    Setanta 5PM Newcastle vs. Bolton

    Setanta 6:45 West Brom vs. Everton

    Sun

    Setanta 8AM Wigan vs. Chelsea

    Setanta 11AM Plymouth vs. Swansea

    I get Setanta onn the Dish Satellite Network

  12. Erik Abarca says:

    Actually the game is over now. Udinese won 1-0 over Villareal. Altidore came in for Rossi in the 67th minute. It was all tied till the 72 minute, Udinese scored right after Cabi was sent off w a str8 red in the 71 minute.

  13. Chester A. Arthur says:

    What? No Crew? guess i will be doing a lot of yardwork this weekend.

  14. Erik Abarca says:

    Ives with a guest appearance on studio 90…lol

  15. Big D says:

    Looks like there isn’t any coverage of the Italian Supercup…

  16. CD says:

    10PM Eastern: USL2 final, Cleveland-Charlotte (FSC)

    No one has won anything in Cleveland since the Force 20+ years ago. Growing up in Cleveland I’ll take any title I can get.

  17. Ives says:

    Michael, I already had the Setanta games listed, not sure why you listed them again.

  18. Andre says:

    Ives…. I’m pretty sure the Italian SuperCup to be played between Inter and Roma is this weekend, and if it is this weekend,you failed to mention it.

    I’m not trying to point out your flaws, haha, just a huge Roma fan. I want to see Baptista’s debut, see if he’s got it good, or does what he did at Arsenal, which is suck.

  19. FULHAM 1 – 0 ARSENAL! Hangeland! Nice!
