This weekend’s soccer on TV

John Terry (ISIphotos.com)

The most anticipated meeting of the weekend isn't Aston Villa-Manchester United in the Carling Cup, or Sporting Lisbon vs. FC Porto, or even Bayern Munich vs. Hamburg.

It's John Terry vs. Wayne Bridge.

The two men involved in one of the sports most controversial scandals in recent memory are expected to be on the field against each other today when Terry's Chelsea faces Bridge's Manchester City in a match with plenty of its own drama.

There is plenty of non-drama soccer to enjoy, such as Tottenham-Everton and the aforementioned top matches.

Here is a rundown of this weekend's Soccer on TV:

    hope Stu gets some minutes. He didnt make 1 mistake everytime he touched the ball. He has to be ahead of weiss on the depth chart.
    He played as well as anyone couldve hoped without scoring.

  2. grubbsbl says:

    I hope Stu plays, but I am not sure one game moves him up the chart. Especially a 4-0 loss. Also, will the coach trust young blood in a relegation battle? The only good thing is Coyle likes to pass the ball and a lot of Bolton’s players are incapable of this. Holden though has some technique.

    I am going with Chelsea v Man City, the Pachuca v Pumas match, and Man Utd v Villa. I would love to watch more but I got a lot of papers due these next two weeks and may have to hit the books.

  3. SBI Troll says:

    No La Liga game on ESPN? Ives, what happen to the weekly game?

  4. SBI Troll says:

    John Terry and Wayne Bridge should cage match for the WC spot. Any takers?

  5. Eric_the_King says:

    They’ll need stage names….

  6. Eric_the_King says:

    Tickled Pink Terry v. The Righteous Bridge

  7. Sven says:

    Well, room for one more?

  8. Sammy Gupta says:

    I wonder what the odds are on Bridge shaking Terry’s hand during the pre-game line handshakes…I’m sure that the bookies in the UK have such a prop. They may not be as high as Bridge punch/slapping terry during the handshakes…

  9. Tim M. says:

    When is Jared Jefferey gonna start getting some minutes or at least dressing for Mainz 05?? I thought they were committed to playing him. Do any of the SBI writers know what the deal is? Please.

  10. Applequist says:

    My son Chester says that Landy Cakes shoes stink.

  11. Bill says:

    what is up with ESPN showing games at 4:45 am on the West Coast. Nobody is going to watch that.

  12. Brian says:

    Lol this guy ^. What is up with ESPN showing games at 4:45am? Is it that hard to figure out? ESPN shows games live and England is 8 hours ahead, so that’s a 12:45 pm game there. I don’t think the Premier League is too concerned about catering to Americans on the West Coast.

    I live in California so I’m not getting up at 4:45 am either but it’s called getting a VCR or a DVR.

  13. john.q says:

    seriously, alongside every pro-kljestan post, that has to be one of the dumbest comments on this blog so far.

  14. g-dub says:

    Please at least indicate that the times you post are ET time. Not everybody lives on the east coast.

  15. USMNT says:

    IVES has Bob Bradley kept tabs on Jermaine Jones or is the injured WORLD CLASS defensive midfielder not even in the discussion of the South Africa World Cup?

    ?

  16. Al17 says:

    Stop being lazy and use your brain, you have one for a reason.
    Gheesh!!!!

  17. g-dub says:

    Dude – obviously I know to add 3 hours to the posted times. I’m just saying for the new or casual reader who may live anywhere within the US it would be helpful to note “all times are eastern standard unless otherwise noted”. Without such a note you’re assuming people are either familiar with this site or live on the east coast. It was just a constructive suggestion.

  18. Niccollo says:

    im writing all my papers now playa. i got my eyes on city at the bridge, my toon vs watford and the sunday final of villa v man u! got a big weekend fellas

  19. jig says:

    where did you hear that they were committed to playing him? I want him to play too, I just have never heard of him ever really getting close to the first team. He is one of those guys I think MLS should really try and get back somehow. Intelligent, has an eye for a good pass, good technique. I really like him, but I want to see him play!

  20. usa4eva20129 says:

    yes i second this…do you know if BB has been watchin with a keen eye on Jermaine? i sorta hope so

  21. Malkin says:

    what’s there to watch?

  22. ThaDeuce says:

    amen, it took me a week to figure it out, and i was late for a usmnt game…that was like 3 years ago, and now i know, but still, it would help the noobs significantly.

  23. ThaDeuce says:

    Hey Ives, will you be up for the Rangers v Celtic game?

  24. dan says:

    what us tv channel is rangers/celtic on?
