The Global Blog is up early this morning at Fadó Chicago to watch Tim Howard and Everton take on Manchester United. Fadó is the U.S. Soccer Bar Program October Bar of the Month and we've ventured here to catch this intriguing match up, as Tim takes on his former club.
Everton also include former United players Louis Saha and Phil Neville in their starting lineup, and how the Toffees could do with a result in this game. Everton have started this campaign slowly and a point against the champions at Ewood Park could be just the kickstart they need.
Meanwhile, the kick the global blog needs is on the table in the form of hot coffee. We've also ordered up some food, which we're awaiting eagerly.
