Saturday

7pm: Minnesota United FC vs. Jacksonville, Ch. 45. Beginning the season with three draws and a loss gave United no margin for error in the ten-game spring NASL season. They've won two in a row, moving up to fourth in the standings in the process, but winning both games on their two-game homestand that starts tomorrow is critical.

9pm: Seattle Sounders vs. Sporting Kansas City, MLS Live. There is suddenly life in KC again, after a mid-week 4-2 win over Eastern champions New England. Their next test is a trip to Seattle, who have only lost three games at home in the past twelve months.

Sunday

9am: Every Premier League game AT THE SAME TIME. It's the final weekend of the Premier League season, which means that all 20 teams are in action, and all at the same time. NBC has taken to using its family of networks to broadcast them all, for the viewer with the twitchy channel-changing finger, so NBC, NBC Sports, USA, SyFy, the Esquire Network, E!, CNBC, Oxygen, Bravo, and MSNBC will all be airing English soccer on Sunday morning.

Only a couple of games particularly matter. Manchester United - Hull City (on NBC) is the big one, as Hull needs a win, and for Newcastle to draw or lose against West Ham (on USA), to escape being relegated to the championship. Arsenal needs at a point against West Brom (on Bravo) to officially clinch third place and the final automatic Champions League spot; even if they lose, Manchester United would have to combine with West Brom to win by a total of at least seven goals to overturn the deficit.
