The English Premier League is back and it kicks off with a handful of juicy season-opening match-ups.

Tottenham and Manchester City faced off in a great battle for fourth place last season and this time around Manchester City will be looking to take care of unfinished business. Liverpool will begin its climb back to the Top Four on Sunday with a key battle against Arsenal. Those of you hoping to watch some Americans in action can see Clint Dempsey and Stuart Holden square off in the Fulham-Bolton clash.

The best weekend soccer action isn't just in England. Major League Soccer's marquee match-up features the New York Red Bulls playing host to the Los Angeles Galaxy, though some MLS fans would argue that the real MLS Cup preview is being played at Rio Tinto Stadium between Real Salt Lake and the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

    You could argue that RSL-Columbus is the marquee match-up in MLS, especially with all the trash talk Columbus has been spewing this week.

    For those of you who want a legal way to watch games online, there’s foxsoccer.tv. It’s $15/month, which I think is pretty pricey, but they’re showing a ton of games, and many of their television, tape-delayed games are live on their website.


  • Smirking Kitten

    Another great way is veetle.com. They tend to have quality feeds (including an FSC channel) and cover all the big matches.


  • WhiteHart

    I know E.J. was in contention for a spot on the bench, but when will we know if he made it?


  • grubbsbl

    About an hour before the game tomorrow. Ives, stop tweeting about your HD experience, it is killing me to watch the same programs in low D.


  • GunneRR

    Red Bulls-Galaxy on Saturday, followed by Arsenal-Liverpool on Sunday?? Pure bliss!


  • Tim F.

    This is a great feature of the blog! I don’t believve FS+ is offered on Cablevision so I won’t see any of those games. Here are my plans:


    7:45am- Tottenham vs. Manchester City

    10am- Aston Villa vs. West Ham

    6pm- New York Red Bulls vs. Los Angeles Galaxy


    11am- Liverpool vs. Arsenal

    3pm- Sao Paulo vs. Cruzeiro

    5:30pm- America vs. Atlas

    Most intriguing matchup – Liverpool vs. Arsenal


  • narog

    Are people watching Fulham vs Bolton online or on the tape delay? I want to see it live but would rather watch it on tv :


  • narog

    also any chance they will reveal the score of Fulham-Bolton during the Chelsea – WBA match on FSC?


  • Joe

    I hear ya, I’m in the same boat as you. Hopefully foxsoccer tv picks it up the Fulham game. I have a Mac and can’t get some or most of the veetle or myP2P broadcasts.


  • ...

    FSC itself won’t– ie during the halftime show– but I don’t know about the in-game commentary.


  • kev

    Thanks for mentiong veetle.com you guys. I usually use Justin.tv but usually those feeds die after 25mins or so.

    I sure hope Holden will start for Bolton or at least on the bench.


  • Beckster

    the spurs/city game is as entertaining as any game I have seen in quite some time. City certainly has a “keeper” with Hart. It’s like the City goal has an invisible shield in front of it’
