Yikes. I don’t even know where to start in describing this weekend. Just a great, great weekend to stay in and watch football. The Premiership goes on, as does the Bundesliga, while Italy and Spain kick into high gear. There are literally five or six games I want to watch, including Real Madrid’s, Juventus’, Manchester United’s, Sheffield United’s, and Inter’s. Its gonna be a busy weekend. And hopefully a great one.

One last thing: apparently Roy Keane has come out and publicly defended referees. Essentially, he said that Refs are only human and that we all make mistakes and that we shouldn’t take the game so seriously and just ease off.
I know, the end of the world is now coming. I hope it holds off until the end of the season. Roy’s crazy comments can be found here: http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=456361&cc=5901
