Midweek Action, Scribes, Mata, Liverpool Derby, U.S. Hotlist, World Cup Protests, Reyna on NYCFC

Oh, boy. Goodness us. We had a solid scouting trip on the west coast and have returned with some potential young talent for SSN Headquarters. All in all, very successful. And, to top it off, we get some delicious midweek Premier League fare to enjoy today and tomorrow.

Right. So Juan Mata is now employed by Manchester United. Can he be their new Cantona? Not in terms of flying kung-fu kicks, but rather inspired play on the pitch. Only time will tell.

The United States Men's National Team will be competing in Brazil this summer. Who is Hot? Who is Not? Check it.

Well, guess what woke finally woke up from a Black Forest winter slumber? The Bundesliga. Raphael Honigstein is on the scene where Klaas-Jan Hunterlaar returned with a bang. Here's the rest of your Tuesday scribe action:

Where? South America. Who? Tim Vickery. What? Falcao injury puts Colombia on alert.

Not exciting.
Back to the Premier League. Today's biggie is the Merseyside Derby. It's the biggest Liverpool/Everton clash in quite some time since both clubs are part of the pack at the top of the table. Elsewhere, Arsenal go south to Southampton, Manchester United host Cardiff and 'Ye Ole Gunner, Norwich welcome Newcastle, Swansea host Fulham, and Hull go to Palace. Here's all your preparatory information:

Michael Cox: Barry vs. Gerrard

More protests in Brazil over the weekend. It's such a shit show. As you know, Tim Vickery is there and he filed this report.

The Transfer Window is still open. Essien went to Milan and Cabaye went to PSG, by the way. Here's The Mill and your Plus One.

Former Yank Abroad Claudio Reyna is running the show for New York City FC. They kick off their life next year. Richard Jolly has a word with the former Rangers & Man City star.

Whew! It's good to be back.
