Weekend soccer TV listings: MLS, Mexico, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, NCAA

What are you going to watch? Probably not the Jaime Moreno farewell match. Remarkably, no standard TV coverage is available. Although there are valid explanations, the absence of live coverage on a mainstream forum for an event transcending an otherwise meaningless league match is a misstep. The club, the league and the rights holder had more than two months to find a way. Moreno deserves better. By the way, if you end up watching on MLS's Direct Kick package, the announcing team will be Toronto FC's crew; the match is being shown in Canada. We love those guys, but for such an occasion, shouldn't Dave Johnson, the voice of D.C. United since 1996, provide the soundtrack for local fans?

Jaime deserves better. On so many levels DCU has become 3d rate--this is just the latest evidence.

Minor typo, Goff, but it could make a difference: Everton-Spurs is an AM game not a PM game.

I'll be at RFK for one last tailgate and hopefully get to see one more goal from Jaime. At least he'll get a warm farewell from those of us watching him in person!

I saw this suggestion at blackandredunited.com by croftonpost, why not give our area a freeview on DirectKick and mlssoccer.com? This is certainly plausible and would be a great goodwill gesture by the league.

One little typo: Everton-Spurs is in the a.m., not p.m., of course.

Is the first time that there wasn't at least one playoff berth up for grabs going into the final weekend of the MLS regular season?

Oops. I now see that someone found the typo before me.

I'll be @ RFK. As for the idiot box, I might have to get up early for the Everton-Spurs match. City-Arsenal on Sunday looks awfully promising, too.

Jozy in for Ruben.

I hate these video responses. Takes up bandwidth, freezes and adds nothing to the experience/answers.

Find someone to type them in . . . especially for those of us at work and can't listen to what they're saying!

Jaime's career has been fantastic, but there's a big part of me that wish he would have retired a few years back. He just hasn't been the same player and the team has suffered by hanging onto him hoping he'd regain some magic.

He's slower than molasses and hasn't played defense in 3 or 4 seasons (minus the Seitz play!)

Pat Phelan checks in for the Revolution... Wearing the headgear.

I agree it would have been ideal for Moreno to retire earlier but until this season (in which he really has shown his age and current physical limitations) he was still one of DC United's most viable offensive threats and his leadership was unquestioned. Bottom line, if you don't take care of the foundation then you can't build. I'm sure this lack of gratitude is being noticed by young players on United like Hamid and Najar. Moreno deserves better, the fans deserve better and the team deserves better. I guess with Payne looking to Baltimore (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sports/blogs/penalty-kicks/Paynes-pain-105493733.html) they don't see the same need to put in the effort to do right by the best player in club history.

I'll be at RFK. Properly tailgating in Lot 8. That's it.
