First it hit one computer, then another, then another, and before you knew it, all 74 computers at SSN Headquarters were down. Caput. Finito. We're back, though, and just in time for what should be another rocking weekend of Le Foot. Let's hit it, beginning with Premier League previews and such, where the London Derby down The Bridge dominates the headlines...

Iain MacIntosh: City must beware West Ham

Check out what Scott Murray's into: A brief guide to Man Utd v Southampton: The fixture that shaped the Premier League. Indeed! Lovely.

There was Europa League action yesterday. Liverpool drew at Bordeaux, Spurs beat Azerbaijani Giants FK Qarabag (seriously), and Borussia Dortmund beat Krasnodar. Here is a wrap, tables, results, yadda, yadda. More? How about Five Talking Points?

Manchester United. Oh, dear. They're to pay £15m to the six Glazer siblings every year. WTF?! David Conn is on the case and says this: "A club founded by railway workers in 1878 has become a vehicle for paying six siblings £2.5m a year each – and Greg Dyke and Richard Scudamore have not said a word."

James Horncastle wants to talk Serie A and he wants to talk Inter Milan and we want to listen, dammmit! 

Jim White wants to talk The Redemption of Arsene Wenger: Arsenal's Stubborn Sorcerer Ready to Rise Again. We want to listen, dammmit!

Back Stateside, Seattle take on Vancouver. Here's a Weekend Preview for MLS.

Woop! We out.
