Wacky World of Premiership Soccer on U.S. TV

  • Both Everton and Fulham are admirable clubs, both steeped in history, but it’s particularly odd that both Fox Soccer Channel and Setanta are, according to their TV schedules, scheduled to show Friday’s 2:30pm ET match. Who will broadcast the match, or could we have the first time a match will be shown by both networks at the same time? Oliver Tse, rescue us.

  • Looking ahead to this Saturday’s Premiership matches, we have one of the best well-rounded days on offer in quite some time. Each match on Fox Soccer Channel and Setanta Sports should be quality kicking off with Chelsea v Spurs (7:45am ET, Setanta), then Arsenal v West Ham (10am ET, Setanta), Reading v Liverpool (10am ET, FSC) followed by Portsmouth v Manchester United (Noon ET, FSC). When was the last time you had four matches like that on U.S. television?

  • It’s never too late to look to the end of the Premiership season on Sunday, May 13th. All of the matches will be shown at the same exact time, 10am ET, to ensure everything’s fair in love and war. But it does pose a difficult challenge for TV viewers who are only able to see two or three live matches on the final day instead of a typical Saturday where we can watch four to five.

    The TV schedule for the last day of the season hasn’t been finalized yet, but here are some of the matches we could expect to see:

    Manchester United v West Ham (could both of these teams’ futures be decided by this game, or will the match take on a huge importance if it decides whether the Hammers go down and United win the league?),

    Sheffield United v Wigan (battle for relegation survival on the last day of the season, anyone?)

    Spurs v Manchester City (qualifying for the UEFA Cup or Champions League versus avoiding the drop?)

    Chelsea v Everton (Jose Mourinho’s last Premiership match?)

    if Spurs keep it up they will catch Arsenal and earn the Champions League spot that was rightfully belonging to them last year.
