From tweets to fines to rumored firings, Hull City's Phil Brown and Jozy Altidore have had quite an interesting week, and it gets even more intriguing this weekend.

The next chapter in the Hull City saga takes place as the Tigers try to climb out of the relegation zone when they play Burnley. With speculation swirling over Brown's future, and with Altidore's role with the club uncertain, this match is surely going to be one to keep an eye on.

Looking for other appealing matches to watch involving Americans Abroad this weekend? Clint Dempsey looks to build off his first goal of the season when Fulham takes on Liverpool.
