Oh, This Is Going To Be Easy!

No Jose-Enrique. No Obafemi Martins. No Geremi (and he's probably being sold anyway). No Barton. No Cacapa. No Ameobi. And no Beye. That's seven missing players. And that's never good. But it is a very good reason to make new friends and drink some ale at a worshiped downtown soccer bar.

Blackburn Rovers v. Newcastle United, Saturday 17 January, 15:00 GMT / 10AM EST, to be shown live at Nevada Smiths in the East Village. Be there!
