I thought it might be worth having a thread for posting info about football games on TV. I'm sure most of us know about the Premier League games, but I'm sure there are games we've all missed and then thought "I wish I'd known that was on".

Let's start with this one that I mentioned in the Series A thread:

Pirlo has a testimonial which is on Sky sports tomorrow night.

http://www.goal.com/en/news/totti-m...-grace-pirlos-star/1t7hii7rjqtg11f6l12v8e959o

Andrea Pirlo has revealed that Francesco Totti, Gianluigi Buffon, Fabio Cannavaro, Alessandro Del Piero, Paolo Maldini and Frank Lampard will form part of his star-studded testimonial at the San Siro.

The World Cup winner announced in February that he would be taking to the field in Milan one last time before hanging up his boots.

Anything at all?

Pirlos testimonial on sky sports.

Lampard, Cafu, Vieri, Rui Costa, zanetti, Pato, Buffon, Schevchenko, etc.

This game is awesome. 4-2 with 35 minutes gone. It's great fun and legends everywhere you look.

Watching my home town team play FC Kobenhavn in the Europa League qualification play off. Pretty exciting for Danish football.

Shouldn't FCK be winning the league every season. Hvad skete der med Ståle?

Not really sure what has happened to them. Midtjylland has a sugar daddy and Broendby are on their way back up. We're 3-1 down now but I am just glad we didn't get relegated again.

Providing I haven't got a dog in the fight (Luton are my local team and I always want to see them do well if they were ever involved), the various Football League play-off games are my favourite non-Spurs football of the year by miles. Nearly always entertaining as fuck, and it's lovely to watch high-stakes football when you won't be upset whichever team wins.

Bring on 5pm!

What's a solidarity payment?
According to the widely respected Swiss Ramble, teams are given £2.3 million from the Football League and the same amount as a solidarity payment from the Premier League. Those clubs that receive parachute payments (which we will come to later) are not entitled to the solidarity payment.

So they get that when parachute payments stop then? Forever?

There have been done great matches over the years. I can still remember the Charlton Sunderland game where Mendonca hit a hatrick - that was in 1998!

That was just the best! Definitely the game that cemented my love of the playoffs.
