If you are a soccer fan in the United States you might not realize it but this is the time of year many American sports fans dread. The NFL season is over and baseball season is weeks away. The NBA and NHL are in the middle of rather meaningless regular seasons and only college hoops seems to produce decent games.
You DON’T hate this time of year if you’re a soccer fan. There is only a reason to love the world’s sport when you can put on the schedule of games we will see on TV this weekend. Here are the Top Four of a loaded weekend:
- Manchester City at Manchester United. One of the world’s best rivalries is a can’t-miss.
- Barcelona at Sevilla. If you want free-flowing soccer, this thriller will be the one you want to see.
- Liverpool at Chelsea. No Fernando Torres but this match will still be heated and entertaining.
- Werder Bremen at Bayern Munich. First place in the Bundesliga on the line in this thriller.
The best game for U.S. national team fans will be Tim "I headlock Mexican forwards" Howard vs. Marcus "three cans of Red Bull a day" Hahnemann in the battle of bald American goalkeepers on Fox Soccer Channel.
