Weekend TV Football Viewing Options

Any self-respecting Galaxy fan should crawl out of bed at 4:30 a.m. Saturday (or set up the DVR) to see what may be one of the most absorbing EPL games of the year so far from an American perspective – Landon Donovan (and Tim Howard) and Everton against the mighty Manchester United, Wayne Rooney and all. Best of all, it’s on in HD on ESPN2.

Need more reasons to get psyched? Here’s a selection of stories previewing the game (or focusing on Donovan) including:

*Sports Ilustrated’s Grant Wahl on the potential implications for the Galaxy on Donovan’s form (which I not coincidentally agree with completely) you can read here.

*The Daily Express on American soccer’s (and Donovan’s) search for respect.

*The game basics, including likely starting lineups, from the Guardian here.

*The Daily Telegraph’s take on the game.

Other games I’ll be keeping an eye on this weekend include:

*7 a.m. Saturday Fox Soccer Channel Wolves-Chelsea

*7 a.m. Sunday FSC Manchester City-Liverpool

*11:30 a.m. Sunday FSC Bari-AC Milan

    I got up to watch our local hero do good yet again. He can play with the best of them. He has nothing left to prove to anyone, including himself. Now he needs to come home and help this league stay on it’s feet.

    Well, I wasn’t loyal enough to wake up THAT early but did set the DVR and enjoyed a great game this morning with my coffee. Fun stuff end to end!!
