This weekend looks so-so, pretty much highlighted by the Sunday morning clash between Arsenal and a once again John Terry-less Chelsea. That honestly should be a good match. The other big match this weekend, the Madrid derby between Real and Atletico, seems as if it is not going to be televised here in the states. Shame, but keep your eyes out in case that changes. It seems like a pretty big oversight. Otherwise, I will be keeping a close eye on the boys from Sheffield to see if they can get another upset against Liverpool (they drew against them to open the season) and also on Barca, to see if they can get their season turned around. Perhaps if Samuel Eto plays, instead of sitting on the sidelines in what looks to me like a ladies raincoat (as he wore during the Barca-Liverpool match on Wednesday) his team would be able to squeak out with a win.
