So, last week, King Hippo took you through the beginning of the English Premier League (EPL). In addition to the EPL, the French league, Ligue 1, started last weekend.
Here are the standings for both leagues:
Meanwhile, La Liga and Serie A BOTH start this weekend while the German Bundesliga starts play
The games start today (in roughly 15 minutes, I believe), so what better time than the present to give you what you've all been waiting for?
Contrary to what Litre_cola might have said in his preview, I don't believe in too much fútbol. Hell, the rest of the world doesn't either.
Yes, Sulky-assed Mourinho's United and what tattered remains of Lester played a wet fart of a Friday nighter, but the sooner we forget that happened, the better. On to a full slate of magic!
Spurs are at the Barcodes to start us off (7:30, NBCSN). Now, the toothless ones flirted with
Those were my seats the last time that I saw premier league football live at Craven Cottage.
It's that time of year again commentists, futbol is kicking off! I'm aware that Mr. Balls and others dislike the EPL but it's what's on my teevee on Saturdays and the good La Liga

Where do you rank this World Cup?
Balls: I've said it before, but I honestly think it's the Best World Cup EVAR! I've

Or, as Our Lord put it, the French v. the Pretend French. Anyway, these are some sexy as fuck footballing sides, I shall say that much. I expect the winner here to hoist the trophy at the end, so bet heavily on the Murder Checkerboards/Cuck Liouns winner.
Belgium (+200) v. France
Yes, we got our dream Waffles/Les Frogs matchup. And the peoples rejoiced. Now, it is time for the back-alley abortion side of the bracket. Join us, won't you? It still beats goddamned baseball.
England (-115) v. Sweden (+385; draw +220) (10:00 EST, Fox)
Merry ole England has Evertonian Keeper Jordan Pickford to
Yes, the Elite Eight is upon us, and only mighty Belgium is keeping me interested whatsoever (ok, maybe Les Frogs a little). Coca Bros. pulling me back in to fuck it up at the death was just too much, man. RIP, Sarah Lynn:
