The Welsh Barcelona / Mourinho Coaching Tree / Saturday Open Thread

Chelsea have the late kick-off today, so talk amongst yourselves until then.

First, the continental cool of Michael Laudrup and Swansea face off against well hard Sam Allardyce and West Ham. It'll be like Barcelona vs. Chelsea, but far less important.

Other teams (now with added Bosingwa!) will then swing into action; the Steve Clarke - AVB reunion probably the most interesting of the six matches starting at 10 AM (EDT). If you're so inclined, SB Nation has all your preview needs covered.
