    Setanta Sports in North America is showing the match live as well. Given the match is on Setanta in the UK, I think Setanta here will go with their in-house feed while FSC goes with the international broadcast. It would be interesting to compare the two.

  2. will watch the setanta feed pre game and then switch over to watch the FSC on my TV…then back to Setanta for HT analysis

    Gaffer…Any news on FSC going HD??

  3. Don’t really care about the CS, Pompy always give United fits but either way it means nothing for United. I would like to see Pompey win it instead of United. Its always nice to see any team who isnt United, Arseanl, Liverpool or Chelski win a trophy.

  4. Mookie says:

    Good, ’cause I’m losing it with FSC airing Dream Team and Barcelona “classics” with that awful dubbed commentary.

  5. Brian says:

    Manchester United won the Community Shield preview today 2-1 over Pompey. Goals from Chris Eagles and Carlos Tevez while Defoe picked up one for Portsmouth.

    Winning preview match doesn’t matter here!!!

    I think Portsmouth will win the match :)

    @ Mookie

    I agree with you. If I have to watch anymore Barca TV from 1994, I am going to go crazy!

    ManU created more chances than we did. We’re still figuring out how to get the ball to Crouchie and Defoe. Too many long balls in, which are too easy to defend, plus neither one is particularly good with his head. We more than held our own in midfield and David James was outstanding. Both teams having played the night before made the match pretty slow at times.

    I’ll be watching the Community Shield on whichever channel the pub chooses. I might bring my laptop and watch it on PFCtv at the same time.

    My prediction: 1-1 Pompey wins on PKs.
