Number of days since an English football club scored a goal during Fox Soccer Channel’s live soccer coverage on Saturdays: 14.
We last saw a goal scored by an English team on Fox Soccer Channel on Saturday, November 15 when Nicolas Anelka knocked the final goal in for Chelsea against West Bromwich Albion. Since then we’ve had to persevere four nil nil draws beginning with last Saturday’s Chelsea 0-0 Newcastle draw, then Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United. And today’s Middlesbrough 0-0 Newcastle result followed by Bournemouth 0-0 Blyth Spartans in the FA Cup.
Maybe Fox should change the name of their Saturday preview and highlights program from Fox Soccer Match Day to Fox Soccer Snooze Day?
