- Here are more details about Liverpool’s new TV channel, LFC.tv, which is scheduled to go live on September 20.

- New rules in the United Kingdom will force people moving to the country to take written and oral tests in English to prove they can communicate in the language. Conveniently, foreign players coming into the Premier League will be exempted from the new regulations.

That said, he believes Setanta and ITV (when they have the rights to England matches beginning in 2008) will have a tough time surpassing the quality of BBC’s Match of the Day team.
