Column 5: Pre-Weekend Roundup

Ok, to get you psyched up for this weekend's upcoming games, here's some fat to chew on in the meantime:

My thoughts exactly:  Sir Alex Ferguson Mocks Champion Chelsea's Easy Start to the Season This article has a bit of everything in it.  Sir Alex dishes on Chelsea, Man City's flip-floppy start to the season, Wayne Rooney's "dissheveled" performance to date, and one (final) slap at Rafa "Failure is my Middle Name" Benitez.

I don't know whether to be excited about this news or disappointed by it: Manchester United Target $16M Teenager De Gea . This move would take a big step toward securing United's long-term goaltending issue, but make my second favorite team weaker defensively.  Better hope Los Colchoneros have a good backup (actually, I think they do in the person of Sergio Asenjo)!

Arsenal fans are pretty wittyRedknapp Pranked by Arsenal Supporter.  Guess they have plenty of time to think up elaborate hijinks since they don't seem to spend much time celebrating championships.

A Shout out to my friend BLeg, who has a new neighbor: Thierry Henry Buys in SoHo.  Just don't ask him to "hand" over the keys anytime soon....

Master of the Obvious, Gerard PiqueWithout Lionel Messi Everything is More Complicated.  Is this actually news? 

Master of the Obvious, Part Two: Aleksandr Hleb: I Need to Accept that Birmingham City is Very Different than Barcelona and Arsenal.  Umm, yeah.  That's an understatement. 

Over and Out.  Enjoy your footie this weekend -- lots of good games to choose from, starting off with Man City vs. Chelsea on ESPN2 tomorrow morning at 7:45am EST.

And that's farlieonfootie for September 25.
