Marquee battles in each of Europe's top leagues and a loaded schedule of important MLS tilts headline a busy Saturday of soccer action.

Early birds will be able to watch Aston Villa take on Chelsea on ESPN2, while those sleeping in can still wake up and catch Juventus-Fiorentina, Hamburg-Bayer Leverkusen and Valencia Barcelona.

Then you have the MLS battles, with FC Dallas-Colorado arguably the most important match-up from a playoff implication standpoint.

If you will be watching today's action, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

    Im watching Barcelona, and i think that JFT would fit into their style of play, and i think that he could work well in Keita’s spot, with Iniesta and Xavi to his sides…..


  • madmax

    Wolves McCarthyon Tim Howard retaliation,
    “But their ‘keeper Tim Howard is very fortunate not to be walking off the pitch too. My understanding is that when you raise your hands above neck high and use your hands to push…”

    CR, Ruiz scores again with undefeated Twente in Holland. I hope Ticos win vs Uruguay.


  • Alex

    wow, its great to see Sochaux beat league leader Lyon in Lyon. According to their website, they dedicated this game to him.


  • Tom

    CrispySt3, so you’re thinking a USMNT sub could start for Barca, eh? Let’s get our best player on Barca first.

    “Beasley didn’t even make the bench; again. January can’t come soon enough for him.”

    Alex I don’t think January will help much unless he goes lower, like MLS. My memory says Beasley was offered around in the off-season and there were no takers.


  • Alex

    as i said January can’t come soon enough. MLS or lower league is the only option I can see.

    Torres has a style of play very comparable to Fabregas, which is why Wenger took a shine to him for a short stint of time. But….Iniesta-Torres-Xavi? Do you want to tell me who’s going to be taking the defensive work that Keita normally carries?


  • Josh.2


    I have to admit I like Torres, but you don’t realistically think he could start for Barca do you? Keita is in that team for a reason. Think about the youngsters at that club who are better than Torres. Jonathan, Busquets…I think It would be nice to see Torres play in Spain…honestly kind of wish he had stayed with Mexico, we would be seeing more of him. Bradley doesn’t seem to be his biggest fan. The kid’s got style though. Reminds me of watching Aimar at Valencia.


  • froboy

    looking forward to seeing our two probably starters at forward for next summer face each other


  • Brian Torres

    Torres not even in the starting XI for Pachuca today and someone wants him to play for Barca? Wow.


  • Isaac

    Brian, it’s most likely because of the travel he had with the national team. I can’t remember too many games he’s missed this season.


  • RM07

    Torres has scored one goal in 70 appearances in the substandard mexican league and people here think he should play at Barca…..

    Madness,madness I tell you.


  • madmax

    Shouldn’t officials stop play whenever a person, or object enters the field that interferes with play?


  • OmarVizquel

    Torres has scored one goal in 70 appearances in the substandard mexican league and people here think he should play at Barca…..

    Madness,madness I tell you.

    Get used to it around here. Any average player who can string 2 passes together immediately gets the “He should play for Arsene Wenger!” tag.


  • Isaac

    Omar, nobody said that he should play for Barcelona or Arsene Wenger. We said that he would fit in with their STYLE OF PLAY.

    RM07, what’s madness is the lack of reading comprehension skills shown on this site.

    btw, Torres has scored TWO goals in 49 appearances for Pachuca. It’s not even his job to score the goals anyways.


  • Martha

    Damn, not a single comment about Serie A, huh? What a performance from Inter, and a great result against a very good team — and that’s without Eto’o or Milito or Motta.


  • CrispyST3

    Jeeeez, you guys are terrible, i said his STYLE OF PLAY! not once did i say that he’ll start there, wowww, i no he’s nowhere near the level of skill required to start at Barca, but i felt that JFT has that style of play
