There's a whole bunch of games to watch today, and while most of them don't have any direct link to Chelsea, they will be fun to watch all the same. The complete lineup of Europa league matches can be found here, and there are a few interesting clubs to watch on that list. Both Newcastle and Liverpool should be of some interest to most English fans, especially with Newcastle being our opponents just 2 days from now. There are quite a few other games involving players Chelsea have been linked to in the past, so I'm sure most of you can find something fun to watch.

There's also a matchup of last year's losing semifinalists of the Champions League going on. The Spanish Supercup is just a two legged version of the Community Shield, and as usual it will see Real Madrid and Barcelona squaring off. The first leg of the competition will be held at Barcelona, and with any luck we'll see a good football game between the rivals for a change. I suppose I probably just jinxed us all, we'll likely just get a bunch of diving, calling for cards, and eye pokes instead. Sorry guys, my bad. Enjoy the games and discuss away in the comments section below.
