With the MLS offseason now in full swing it's time for me to start to take a deeper look at the European game. That's a task that I plan on really kicking off this weekend and there really isn't a better time to do so -- as there is a full slate of fantastic matches on the table for all of us to enjoy.
Some games that I'll most likely be following today include:
Portsmouth v. Manchester United - 9 CDT - ESPN2 (we'll see if I get up in time for this one, the current prognosis is doubtful)
Aston Villa v. Tottenham - 11:30 CDT - FSC
Borussia Moenchengladbach (Michael Bradley's team) v. Schalke 04 - 11:30 CDT - GolTV
Check out the day's full soccer on TV schedule [here](http://www.soccerbyives.net/soccer_by_ives/2009/11/this-weekends-soccer-on-tv-5.html#more).
I'll post any thoughts I have on these (and other games) throughout the day so feel free to follow along. If you have any questions of you're own ask away. I'll be sure to provide an entertaining (if not completely informative -- never did say European soccer was my forte...) answer.
Enjoy the day and the soccer action.
