Now wait a minute, I know you’re US Soccer Players and all, but are you seriously encouraging me to watch Everton – Aston Villa on Saturday (2:30pm – Fox Soccer). Why yes, we are. See, Aston Villa might be the best story in the Premier League right now. Call it commitment, vision, or inaction, but they’re sticking with their manager. It makes for interesting viewing. Plus, you get to see Tim Howard’s Everton attempt to crack the top four. Also on Saturday, Fox Soccer Plus has Arsenal – Stoke at 10am for those of you ready to anoint Stoke City as the new Team America.
