11am ET, not live on the US. Live on Fox Soccer 2Go, and delayed at 6:30pm ET on FSC.
Last season, Fox televised every match on the final day other than the one on espn2. There were matches on Speed, on Fuel TV, on pretty much every cable station Fox owned. This season? Nothing extra; just the standard three televised matches.

Well, here we are, the end of the season. This one in particular seems to have flown by and unfortunately I a have to admit I've found myself a bit bored this season, I just haven't felt fully entertained, only at certain points, here's hoping next season we can improve on that!

On Sunday, Chelsea will host Everton in the final round of fixtures in the 2012-13 Premier League season. An interesting caveat about the match is that both sides will likely be markedly different next season Everton manager David Moyes has already agreed to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United while Chelsea will part ways with Rafa Benitez at the end of the season.
This is the biggest game of the season for Newcastle tomorrow afternoon against bottom of the table and already relegated Queens Park Rangers. It's also a crucial game for manager Alan Pardew and it's a chance to see us safe in the league before the last game of the season. A win will see [...]

On Wednesday, Chelsea will host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge in a vital match for both sides. A win for Chelsea could bring them that much closer to second place, while Tottenham could rise to fourth place and a subsequent UEFA Champions League qualifying spot should they get the full three points.

Sunday marks the day for the 220th Merseyside Derby. It's quite hard to believe there's been so many clashes between the red and blue side of Liverpool but any fan will tell you that this game means the world, it means even more when you realise Liverpool could close the gap on Everton with 2 league games left to go this season.
The Newcastle team has just been announced and Ben Arfa starts along with captain Fabricio Coloccini, who returns to the side after missing the last 12 games with a back injury. It seems that Newcastle will play in a 4-3-3 formation this afternoon with Cabaye, Tiote and Gutierrez the middle three and the three up [.

This Sunday, seventh placed Liverpool will host sixth placed Everton in another installment of the Merseyside Derby. With the season winding down, not only is this match important for bragging rights, rather the match is a pivotal decider of which club will represent the English Premier League in the Europa League next season.
Tomorrow's game at West Ham is vital for Newcastle United if we are to start to extricate ourselves from the grip of relegation and it's very important that we take something out of this game. Newcastle have fallen apart since we were knocked out of the Europa league by Benfica who reached [...]
The game today between two clubs who were founded back in the same year 1892 is perhaps a water-shed game for Newcastle, when we take on Liverpool at St. James' Park this afternoon. Newcastle have not fared well since the Southampton game in the league, and in the last seven league games since [...]
The Newcastle team has just been announced, and it seems the reliable James Perch has been brought into defensive midfield, and Massadio Haidara starts at left-back. This is Massadio's very first Premier League start, but this lad has so far looked a good player for Newcastle, and Massadio is one of three changes made by [.
This Saturday, 10th placed Fulham will host 4th placed Arsenal at Craven Cottage. The Gunners will be looking for maximum points against the home side as they currently sit one point behind Chelsea for third place and the subsequent direct qualification into the UEFA Champions League, though the Blues do have a game in hand.
Tomorrow's game at West Brom is a very important game for Newcastle and yes I say that for every game Newcastle play in the season because it's true. But tomorrow is a little more important than usual, after we were completely humiliated and humbled last Sunday by Sunderland at home beaten [...]
Stoke City, with it's pair of Americans grabbing the attention of at least of few of their countrymen across the pond, head to Loftus Road on Saturday to battle QPR in a crucial game for both sides. Stoke's recent form leave them perilously close to the drop zone in 16th, just three points clear of 18th place Wigan.
As expected Mathieu Debuchy, Steven Taylor and Cheick Tiote return to the starting line-up this afternoon, but 20 year-old Massadio Haidara is on the bench and Jonas Gutierrez starts at left back, as Alan Pardew goes for experience. So six of the starting eleven Krul, Yanga-Mbiwa, Gutierrez, Cabaye, Sissoko and Cisse also started [.
Newcastle United can basically ensure the safety of the club with a win tomorrow afternoon in the local derby against Sunderland. Newcastle are currently 5 points above the drop zone and Wigan Athletic , who are 3rd bottom on just 31 points and they are in their annual struggle to escape the drop. And with [.

Liverpool make the trip to Reading on Saturday as they look to improve on their rather ineffective performance against West Ham. Reading are on a very poor run of form but even that doesn't help us decipher whether the Reds will be turning up as Jekyll or Hyde.
I perhaps should have done this earlier, because there has been plenty of Utd-related news strolling across the bottom of Sky Sports News this week. So let's run through some little news bites and see where we go....
First off, the Champions Parade. That took place earlier this week and was quite a spectacle.
For both teams competing tonight, the season has petered out somewhat in recent weeks. West Ham are luxuriating in the comfort of mid table, neither worrying by relegation nor threatening a late assault on the European places. Whilst this winding down has been a massive positive for West Ham fans, it has been anti-climatic for [.
Two teams that both carry seven match unbeaten streaks will meet on May 8 at FC Dallas Stadium when the Portland Timbers visit FC Dallas in a midweek battle. While the Timbers are a bit testy after their draw against New England, FC Dallas hasn't played since drawing with Vancouver back in late April.
The Portland Timbers found a great deal of confidence in securing their first win of 2013 over the Houston Dynamo back on April 6, but they get another stern test when the San Jose Earthquakes visit on April 14. The Earthquakes and Timbers have had a very close, energetic rivalry throughout the MLS years, and San Jose comes to JWF slightly frustrated after playing to a 1 all draw versus Vancouver in their last match.
The moment Robin Van Persie left Arsenal in the summer, this fixture was immediately circled in red on many Arsenal fans'calendars. The Dutchman will probably be subjected to a feisty atmosphere upon his return to the Emirates, but the reception shouldn't daunt him one bit for he's proved he was right in leaving N5 for [.

This Saturday, the Bundesliga's 3rd and 4th placed teams will square off when Schalke host Bayer Leverkusen at the Veltins-Arena. The match is particularly contentious as the two clubs are just four points apart in the Bundesliga table.
Saturday's important 17:30 kick-off sees 4th placed Schalke 04 host 3rd placed Bayer Leverkusen in the race for the automatic Champions League spot. Leverkusen were knocked-out in the first qualifying round of the Champions League this season and so will be looking to avoid such an embarrassing recurrence by finishing in the automatic qualification spot [.
A Monday night game against Aston Villa wouldn't normally set the pulse racing, but tonight's match is an altogether different proposition. Three points against Paul Lambert's men will clinch United's 20th league title with four games to go, an impressive achievement despite the critics Sir Alex's troops have been subject to since August.
We are just learning the starting eleven for Newcastle and it looks like Mike Williamson will indeed start alongside Yanga-Mbiwa at the back to give the Newcastle defense some height to combat the threat of Oscar Cordozo. We had thought Mike Williamson may be brought in from the cold and this is a great chance [.
