Chelsea and Manchester United will come down to the final weekend of action to determine the winner of this season's English Premier League title.

Chelsea holds a one-point lead and can lock up its first title in four years with a win vs. Wigan, while manchester United will be hoping for a Chelsea slip-up and a win vs. Stoke City.

The race in Spain is also tight, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both having their matches on American television this weekend.

    Whatever happened to the pick the caption game? This one looks like it would have potential.


  • Danny

    I can’t wait for Benfica-Rio Ave on Sunday…Benfica will win the Portuguese league title for a record of 32 times…Lisbon will be rocking the night away…

    Forca Benfica!!!

  • Wispy

    “Because, because, because, because, beCAAAAAAUSE, because of the wonderful things he does…”


  • Petaluman

    Lampard: “We’re winning, we’re winning.”

    Drogba: “No, man check out the scoreboard over there”


  • jr

    i have a feeling Barcelona is going to lose this week because zlatan and pique are going to be flirting with each other…….


  • Max

    I know this is a week early, but does anyone know if the German Cup Final will be on TV next week?


  • Clayton John

    there are more games on channels that most people don’t get (fox soccer plus, espn3, golTV) than the channels we do get!


  • madmax

    “Which one are you most looking forward to watching?”
    Barcelona at Sevilla, both are fighting for positions.
    Galaxy at Sounders, Galaxy can put an early nail in Sounders coffin and bury them at the bottom of table.


  • G-Man

    Why isn’t FSC showing the Palermo v. Sampdoria game??? That game is huge, and instead they show meaningless games.


  • Brian S

    ESPN 3 is the internet streaming channel through ESPN. If you have internet access then you can get it on your computer


  • WileyJ

    Don’t get out your Hammer just yet, Sounders got plenty of fight for Galaxy.


  • madmax

    I suspect this game will be a scoreless bore. I predict Mexico to the final 16 and would pick them for final 8 except they play more home games than any other country which spoils the players.


  • jr5

    actually not everyone can watch espn3.com. i can’t, thanks to their internet provider rules. every time i log onto espn.com, i see the espn3 page, and it says on the top “you have access to espn3”, and i get excited, and then i try to watch something, and i’m unable to. i’m sure it has to do with money, somehow. but it sucks. also, no bolton game? they’re always on on saturdays i’m hoping to watch fulham (or whoever) and the one time i want to watch them to see if holden plays, they’re nowhere to be found? come on. weak.

    It has to do with your internet. If you have less than 20 MB internet streaming, it ain’t gonna happen for you. ESPN 3 takes a HUGE amount of Bandwidth. Tell your ISP/TV provider to get with the program.


  • Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper"

    Barca v Sevilla, Gals v Sounders and Fulham v RSNL! Get em Gooners!
    ++ Sorry Clint ;-( ++


  • Andy

    Nope – it has to do with which providers pay ESPN for the privilege. And, unfortunately, there’s little an individual customer can do; ESPN doesn’t even offer a personal pay option.


  • Greg

    exactly, I have the sports package with my cable company but I dont think I know what ESPN 3 is and I dont think I have it either


  • Joe

    I use both Chrome and Firefox. ESPN3 doesnt work on chrome but works perfect on Firefox. I recommend the switch.


  • smokedgouda

    Ives, this may be too hard to do, but could you make the team colors RED when there are Americans on the teams playing?

    Just a thought…I know you do a lot already and the site is top notch. But this would make it easy to choose games to watch.


  • cardcrsher

    I can watch ESPN3 using Chrome and a slow connection (5mbps). IDK why others are saying that they can’t watch ESPN3 using Chrome and slow connections. If all fails, one can always steal unprotected Wi-Fi


  • WileyJ

    max, your Galaxy played very well, hats off to them. L.D. looks to be in great form. Awesome for the national team, not so good for us today. Was glad to see Bruce Arena didn’t leave Landon or Edson on any longer. Need to keep them healthy. Had to wonder why Gonzales hasn’t been capped by now, would hate to lose him to Mexico, he had a fantastic game topped of with a beautiful header.
