The Joy of Six, New York Derby, Championship Playoffs, Spanish Football Suspended

Griffin Park - Home of Brentford FC - West London
There goes another one, friends! The week has flown by and it's time to prepare for another weekend of action. There won't be many more, so enjoy it whilst you can! Before we get to previews, let's take a brief gander at last night's results from the Europa League. Sevilla cruised past Fiorentina at home, while Dnipro Dnipropeptreptakniptrovsk got a bullshit goal (two guys well offside - go to 1:31) to claim a draw in Naples. The second leg in the Ukraine will be very interesting. Now, then. Let's roll, beginning with the Premier League.

So, who is going down? Who will enjoy The Championship next season? Stuart James, Louise Taylor, David Hytner, and Paul Wilson examine all the contenders here. Meanwhile, who is coming up? We've already got Bournemouth and Watford set, but who amongst Norwich, Middlesbrough, Brentford, and Ipswich will join them? Indeed, who will prevail? Here's a Championship Playoff Preview. The action begins today with Boro at Brentford.

There will be matches in Spain this weekend. One of them is Barcelona vs. Real Socieded. That said, there might not be any matches in Spain next weekend. The season has been suspended due to a dispute over TV rights. Andy West brings us up to speed on the very real possibility of a truncated campaign in Spain.

Down in Italy, Juventus have the title done and dusted, so it's now all about the fight to stay up...and the fight for Europe. Roma, Lazio, and Napoli are all in the race. Here's a Weekend Preview for Serie A.

Woop! We've got a Joy of Six to enjoy this week. It's...Footballer Politicians!

There's a Derby in MLS this weekend. The Energy Drinks from New Jersey play host to NYCFCYFC in Harrison. He's a Weekend Preview for the North American league.

And finally...this asshole just keeps getting better and better.

Hey! That's gonna do it. Enjoy the weekend!
