All right, ladies. (I guess that doesn’t have the same meaning on this board, but whatever.) Since Fulham is going to get raped by Chelsea today, I’ll try to enjoy the rest of the football. Here’s a list of what’s on TV (to the best of my knowledge).

I know they mean nothing, but interesting to see the movement given the competitive matches just completed. Argentina, Belgium and Uruguay made nice jumps.

For those that have lived in caves for the past 6 months, NBC and its affiliates are taking over coverage of the EPL this season.

Coleman 2-1 with a 1.03 ERA in 14 appearances for Omaha this season. 3 saves, 30 K's and 9 walks in 26.1 IP.
Believe this will be his third stint with the big club.

How often does the manager of a relegated club have his future in his own hands? Must be nice.
| Soccer Board|| Match Day 4/28 - BraveTiger225 on 4/28/13 at 8:05 am|
We start with Reading - QPR.
If my math is right, a win by either team sends the loser down. A draw keeps them both mathematically alive, but even a point tomorrow by Aston Villa would then send them both down.
