Manchester United have won their last three across all competitions, with all three of those contests taking place away from the friendly confines of Old Trafford. Now they return to the theatre of dreams to face a newly promoted, but surprisingly formidable Wolverhampton Wanderers side.

Wolves have only lost once in six matches across all competitions this season, and already have an impressive draw against reigning league champions Manchester City on their resume. Since that result against the Sky Blues, they have won three in a row and kept three clean sheets against Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup, West Ham and Burnley in the league.

Share

The Northern Illinois Huskies have arguably the nation’s toughest non-conference schedule this season, and next up is a trip to Tallahassee to face the Florida State Seminoles. The voyage to Doak Campbell Stadium is one that has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced a couple of years ago, replacing a home date with Idaho on the schedule.

The players and coaching staff will be really amped, as evidenced by the sound bites they gave at NIU Media Day. Most importantly, this game goes above and beyond football, as it’s a money game that saved jobs at NIU

Rod Carey on How the Florida State Road Trip Saved Jobs at NIU (Exclusive)

The Northern Illinois Huskies are visiting Tallahassee this weekend to take on the Florida State Seminoles and it’s a trip that’s about much more than football. Yes, it’s an opportunity to face, and hopefully defeat, a traditional college football blue blood, but getting this game on the books has already yielded a major win for Northern Illinois University.

The 2013 Orange Bowl rematch replaces what had been a home date with Idaho on the NIU schedule. It’s also a $1.6 million payday, courtesy of Florida State University. This cash infusion helped save jobs in DeKalb, Illinois, where they were facing a massive budget shortfall. No, the current Seminoles are definitely not living up to the FSU brand, but this is a special game nonetheless.

Liverpool FC are coming off a thrilling 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stages last night. Roberto Firmino scored the game winner in extra time, overcoming an eye injury he suffered last weekend to rise off the bench and provide the fireworks.

He celebrated with a gesture that mocked his eye fitness issue, and the reaction of teammate Mohamed Salah to the scoring strike inspired controversy. Was Salah angry? Did the Egyptian celebrate his team’s glory? Take a look at the video at this link, which gives you a clear answer.

Share

Cristiano Ronaldo, world superstar of footballing superstars, saw his first UEFA Champions League match in a Juventus shirt end early tonight due to his getting sent off. Ronaldo, who drew a red card in the 29′ on a very questionable call against Valencia, will now miss Juve’s next European clash, and could possibly miss the next two after that.

If UEFA does suspend him for the next three European games, he would miss both contests against his former club, Manchester United. Juventus play at Old Trafford on October 23rd, and if Ronaldo is able to feature in that contest, it would be just the second time he’s been on the visitor’s side since leaving the club in 2009.

Chelsea commence their 2018-19 Euro campaign tomorrow night with a trip to Greece, to take on PAOK Salonika. As we’ve already learned, Eden Hazard is apparently rested for this one, so this clash looks like a chance for Blues boss Maurizio Sarri to rotate his squad.

It’s a chance for some fringe players to step up and make an impression on the Italian, and we had that idea top of mind as we composed our projected Chelsea first team to take the pitch at the Toumba Stadium in Salonika.
