Hello and welcome, I was also about to say then that the Premier League is back after the International Break? However, it’s me that is actually back. I was away last weekend, well I was away for the week in fact. Sunning it up and ‘resting’ in Ibiza! Therefore I’m sorry to you our readers out there for live games not being listed on this website or for my views and opinions on the games that were on.
I’m sure you of course found what games were on, well the obvious ones. I watched both the Manchester derby and Swansea v Chelsea Premier League games in a bar in San Antonio. Plus for my sins the Villa v Forest Championship game. I do love watching football whilst you’re abroad. There is just something great about sitting there in your shorts, t-shirt, sandals and shades whilst supping on a pint of Estrella Damm.
Anyway, enough of my holiday and goings on. To this weekend’s football and in particular tonight’s games. What a feast in store! I’m guessing most will be watching the second ‘Friday Night’ live Premier League match between Chelsea and Liverpool. If not, then you certainly have enough other choices with live games from Germany, France, Italy and Spain. They may not be the most glamorous ties, but the fact they’re on and that you have the choice to watch them is what it’s all about.

Onto Saturday, there aren’t to many major stand out games, I do wonder how many Barca may score against Leganes after the seven they scored midweek vs Celtic, might be worth a bet on number of goals for that. There is a mixed bag of games everywhere else – Cardiff vs Leeds will be spicy and I might be tempted with the away win there after they won midweek, plus with Cardiff conceding three in both their last two outings.
Middlesbrough have done well so far this season and have not yet looked out of place since returning to the Premier League. However, Everton are now starting to look like a good unit under Koeman so it could be a tricky one. A draw could be a good shout but I’m guessing most will have to go with the home win. Napoli to beat Bologna late Saturday night as well, even though both have won two of their opening three league so far.
