Manchester Derby, Scribes, Marcotti's Musings, Escobar(s), MLS Power Rankings, Mexican Violence, World Cup Watch, Beckham's Miami Stadium, More Fun With FIFA

Don't know about you guys, but most of us milling about SSN Headquarters this morning are still trying to recover from the weekend's wacky events. But...there is no time! Manchester United host Manchester City this afternoon. Arsenal try to get back on the horse at home against Swansea. Newcastle and Everton go at it. And Roma host Torino. Let's get moving.

Manchester United vs. Manchester City: Preview

Golden Balls has big plans for Miami. Specifically, a new stadium. It looks lovely, Becks.

Scribe Time!

Where? Brazil Who? Tim Vickery. What? Remembering Bellini

Where? Italy. Who? Paolo Bandini. What? Sampdoria show their revival could be permanent

Where? Germany. Who? Raphael Honigstein. What? Bayern on course amid chaos elsewhere

Where? Germany. Who? Uli Hesse. What? What's wrong with international friendlies?

Sad scenes here from the Chivas/Atlas match over the weekend:

We've made it through three weeks of Major League Soccer. What's the most powerful side? According to Jeff Carlisle, you need to head to the Great White North to find it. According to Mr. Bird, you should go south to Texas. Bird also has his best of the week here.

FIFA. What a bunch of asshats. Here's the latest.

Right, so BBC Sport, with the help of European football expert Andy Brassell, is taking a weekly look at happenings from across the world of football and what impact they could have on the tournament in the summer. Go on. Take your weekly look. If you look closely, you'll see Ricardo Quaresma. Remember that guy?

We've got another candidate for Best Goal Celebration Ever thanks to Estonian side Nomme Kalju. You'll be bowled over, we promise...

Gab Marcotti is in the mood to muse today. He'd thinking about a classic Clasico, Marriner's mistake, Milan's malaise and more.

World Cup: 25 stunning moments … No7: Andrés Escobar's deadly own goal. That pretty much speaks for itself, right?

Enjoy the action later!
