This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

After a week that saw a flurry of moves all over Europe, including deals taking place at the last minute, soccer will return to the pitch instead of the in the office for the weekend. With the summer transfer window closed, rosters are now finalized for the time being, with many formidable teams improving their rosters. Some players such as Clint Dempsey, Scott Sinclair, Dimitar Berbatov, and others could be making their debut for their new clubs as soon as this weekend.

There are plenty of intriguing matchups taking place in the Premier League, specifically with Liverpool hosting Arsenal on Sunday. After a draw with Manchester City last weekend, manager Brendan Rodgers is still looking for his first win with his new club. Not to be outdone, a rematch of the amazing 2011 season finale between Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers will take place at Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Across the pond in America, the playoff races are beginning to heat up, with quite a few intriguing matchups taking place over the next few days. The Montreal Impact and Columbus Crew will look to continue their ascent up the standings as they face off against each other on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Vancouver Whitecaps will look to stop the bleeding in Los Angeles against the Galaxy on Saturday, as they look to halt a three-game losing streak. Currently they hold the last spot in the Western Conference playoff race.

If you're looking to catch some Americans Abroad, Dempsey will join his new London club, as Tottenham hosts Norwich City at White Hart Lane. He joins fellow American, goalkeeper Brad Friedel. Newcomer Geoff Cameron will welcome Maurice Edu to Stoke City, as the Potters take on Wigan Athletic.

    Falcao is on tear he and Atletico Madrid destroyed Chelsea today to win the Super cup. Anyone that believes the Spanish league is just like the Scottish League used be just isn’t paying attention there are talented teams beyond Barca and Real its just those 2 clubs have been on a whole other level lately.

    It’s always nice to see a Portland game to get fired up about the MLS weekend. Best American sports crowd anywhere.

  7. MooseFC says:

    7-5 Liverpool.

  9. yo says:

  10. Max says:

    I wish I could watch Liverpool vs. Arsenal, but I’m working Sunday morning. I set a recording on my Hopper so I can see how the match goes when I get home. The 2,000 hours of hard drive space makes it easier to record games I can’t see live TV. My coworkers at Dish suggested that I make the upgrade since I like recording a lot sports and it’s been a good choice. I don’t think the game will be a scoreless shutout, maybe Liverpool is finally due a win against the Arsenal!
