The new ratings are disappointing in that they didn’t break the 300,000 barrier for number of viewers. However, the games shown haven’t featured clashes between the big sides.

Better news for ESPN (and soccer fans Stateside) is that the Disney owned channel will be featuring some more attractive games within the next couple of months including Liverpool v Everton (February 6), Everton v Manchester United (February 20), Chelsea v Manchester City (February 27), Manchester City v Spurs (March 6) and Manchester United v Fulham (March 13).
