20:00 England v Mexico, International Friendly, ITV1/ITV HD
Every time England qualifies for a major tournament, a nation expects - expects most of its players to pick up metatarsal injuries beforehand, that is. Who'd have thought our very own Wembley Stadium pitch would ensure that'll probably be the case ahead of World Cup 2010?

19:45 Charlton Athletic v Swindon Town, League One Play-Off Semi-Final 2nd leg, Sky Sports 1/HD1 (2-1 to Swindon in the 1st leg)
That sound you hear is the last knockings of the domestic football season coming to an end around Europe. That doesn't make the remaining games any less important, mind - quite the contrary.

That sound you hear is the last knockings of the domestic football season coming to an end around Europe. That doesn't make the remaining games any less important mind, quite the contrary a cavalcade of drama and excitement awaits those wise enough to tune into the League 1 and 2 Play Off Semi-Finals, starting at the Valley.

15:15 Spartak Nalchik v Lokomotiv Moscow, Russian Premier League, ESPN
A bit of a sad occasion, this. What you're reading is probably our last TV Preview of the season (at least one of any real substance) now that all the cups and medals have been handed out. There will, of course, be the odd Cup Final and Japanese A-League curio cropping up on the box from time to time, but until the World Cup rolls around, this is it for now.

19.00 Barcelona v Tenerife, La Liga, Sky Sports 2/HD2
Three wins in the last four have given Tenerife real hope of staying up - defeat here won't be the end of the world but they'll need to put in a good performance to maintain momentum.

19.45 Celtic v Rangers, SPL, Sky Sports 3/HD3
A chance for Celtic to salvage some pride or a chance for the Champions to really rub it in.

20:00 Crystal Palace v West Bromwich Albion, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
OK so here's the situation: Palace are fourth from bottom, one point above Sheffield Wednesday. If they can beat promoted West Brom they will stay in the league and relegate Wednesday.

19:45 Plymouth Argyle v Newcastle United, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
With promotion back to the Premier League already sown up, Newcastle can claim the Championship title outright with at least a point against The Pilgrims in this match. Sadly Chris Hughton's side can no longer beat Reading's record 106-point total from the 2005-06 season, but they can still notch up 104 if they win their three remaining games which will certainly be a great achievement in its own right.

19.45 Swindon Town v Exeter City, League One, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Swindon are currently in the box seat to join Norwich for automatic promotion from League 1. Still six games to go though and they're under huge pressure from Millwall and Charlton (but not from Leeds).

17:30 CSKA Moscow v Inter Milan, UEFA Champions League, Quarter-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 2/HD2
Jose will not under estimate Russian opposition and will be weary of the trickery of Serbian winger Milos Krasić. Saying that, it would be a major shock if CSKA were to progress.

19.45 Newcastle United v Nottingham Forest, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
After the distraction of Andy Carroll having an almighty punch-up with team-mate Steven Taylor, Newcastle won't want us or anybody else bringing up the issue as they continue their relentless pursuit of automatic promotion.

19.45 Leeds Utd v Millwall, League One, Sky Sports 1/HD1
A fixture to leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth of any fan of football, unless of course you have a misguided nostalgia for "firms" and British Rail football specials. Leeds have a cushion of 12 points in the automatic promotion spots, Millwall's hold on a play-off place is less secure but their form suggests they have what it takes.

19:45 Crystal Palace v Wolverhampton Wanderers, FA Cup 4th Round Replay, ITV4
A week of cup action lies ahead with some matches that are mostly of parochial interest only. Starting with this FA Cup replay at Selhurst Park. The Eagles have lost Victor Moses to Wigan but had not been playing him in the Cup anyway.

15:45 Egypt v Cameroon, Africa Cup of Nations Quarter Final, British Eurosport/HD
Hard to know which Cameroon side will turn up for this match. Inconsistent in their group matches, only Zambia have now got longer odds to win the competition of the six teams remaining (according to the bookies).

16.00 Angola v Algeria, Africa Cup of Nations Group A, British Eurosport/HD
It's wide open in Group A with all teams still in with a shout. Angola sit top of the group, unbeaten, and just need a draw to progess. Algeria must win to avoid an early exit - a result that would see the hosts sweating the result of.

13:30 Malawi v Algeria, Africa Cup of Nations, British Eurosport/British Eurosport HD
Despite the bloody intervention by The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda there is still a football tournament to be played. Few people are better equipped to move on after tragedy than the war torn populous of Angola.

19.45 West Bromwich Albion v Queens Park Rangers, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink is the latest to be tipped to take over the searingly hot seat at QPR. He'll be the ninth manager in three years if he does, so he probably won't be making himself too comfy there.

19:45 Watford v Queens Park Rangers, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Both teams find themselves back in the thick of it just two days after suffering defeats in the Championship. While Watford went down 2-0 to 10-man Newcastle, QPR were being thumped 5-1 at home by Middlesbrough, however a win for Rangers today could put them fourth in the table (albeit temporarily).

19:45 Preston North End v Newcastle Utd, Championship, Sky Sports 1 / HD1
These two sides haven't played each other in the league since 1981. That season, Preston went down to the old Third Division and if they maintain their current form (one win in their last seven games), they might just replicate that.

19:45 Coleraine v Glenavon, IFA Premiership, Sky Sports 1 & HD1
Not much to talk about this week. The last knockings of World Cup qualifying is underway with precious little local interest. So instead, Sky have wheeled out this rare gem from Northern Ireland.

Tuesday 17th November

19:45 Northern Ireland v Czech Republic, U21 International , Sky Sports 1& HD1
This is a European Championship Qualifier.

19:45 Barnsley v Sheffield Utd, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Start the week with a thundering Yorkshire derby if that's your pleasure. An Eee Ba Gum Classico if you will. Both teams are two of six on 17 points making it tighter than a gnat's chuff in the middle of the Championship.

19.45 Sheffield Utd v Newcastle Utd, Championship, Sky Sports 1/HD1
The Blades are in an awful slump that could see them in big trouble if they don't snap out of it quick. A last minute winner from Kevin Nolan ended Newcastle's own winless run last time out but they can go back top with a win here.

Another week, another World Cup tournament - this time FIFA's top competition for Under-17 players currently going on in Nigeria until November 15th. As with the Under-20 World Cup, Eurosport UK are covering the tournament so check their website for programme information. We'll pay closer attention ourselves when it gets to the latter stages, but for now we're concentrating on.

19:45 Leeds Utd v Norwich City, League One, Sky Sports 1/HD1

Paul Lambert has settled the shredded nerves at Carrow Road and the Canaries are now unbeaten in five games. A hot reception awaits them at Elland Road, though, and the best Norwich can hope for is a point.

19:45 Tranmere Rovers v Stockport County, League One, Sky Sports 1/HD1

Rovers are now John Barnes-free after a pretty awful start to the campaign. County are only a few places above them. Needless to say both teams are skint and don't have much to work with, squad wise.

19:45 Cliftonville v Linfield, IFA Premiership, Sky Sports 1
We start this week with another all-too-rare dipping of the toes into the world of Northern Irish football. You have to go back almost exactly three years for the last time Cliftonville beat Linfield in a league fixture and on current form fourth-placed Linfield should beat their opponents three places below them again.

19:45 MK Dons v Norwich City, League One Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports HD1
Another mammoth Midweek TV Preview begins with an England v Scotland clash - in managerial terms, at least. Paul Ince's MK Dons and Paul Lambert's Norwich are enjoying similar form at the moment, but Norwich need the points more after a poor start.

17:00 Germany v Norway, UEFA Women's European Championship, British Eurosport

Norway lost 4-0 to the Germans earlier in this tournament. While a repeat scoreline is unlikely, it's hard to see past Germany joining England in the Final.
