"Daddy, Balotelli has disappeared....."

If you're in the UK, and you don't have a full suite of satellite based television channels, you'll be pleased to hear that ESPN are running another free sports weekend soon.

ESPN’s Free Weekend, sponsored by Nokia Lumia, begins at 6am on Friday 3rd February and will make ESPN and ESPN HD available to all Sky, TopUp TV and BT Vision subscribers in the UK and Ireland. Additionally, the channel will be available for free to the 10million UK households who have the subscription-free digital TV service Freeview.

What's significant about this free weekend is that it offers English Premier League football via the Freeview platform for the first time with Manchester City v Fulham included in the live schedule.

European football action kicks off on the Friday night as Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund travel to FC Nuremburg, then on Saturday night Roma take on Inter Milan in Serie A. Sunday will see three more games from the Italian top flight, including the evening kick-off between AC Milan and Napoli.
