MNT Oct 16, 2009
Every Friday the MNT Blog will feature a preview of league action involving our players abroad. We'll have TV information on which games you can see live and make sure to check back throughout the weekend (both here and at our twitter feed) for the latest updates. All times below are ET.
Tim Howard and Everton face struggling Wolves at Goodison Park on Saturday. Everton are winner of five in a row in all competitons, with Howard keeping clean sheets in the last four games. You can tell the above picture has nothing to do with this post. To that we say, "Why not?" Everton vs. Wolves airs delayed on Setanta at 10:15 p.m.
Carlos Bocanegra is suspended for Rennes' trip to Lille on Saturday. If you tune in maybe you'll get to see Carlos in the stands. It might be worth it. Lille vs. Rennes is live on Setanta at 2:55 p.m.
José Francisco Torres and Pachuca are up for a clash of inconsistency against the Monarchs (the regent, not the butterfly) from Morelia. Both teams have had roller coast seasons thus far, either winning or falling by large margins. The Gophers will travel to Morelia, where they hope to continue their winning ways after defeating América 1-0 in their last league encounter.
