    Will Monday Dec.27 be the traditional full Boxing Day slate, or is that match the only one that day?
    I would be a bit disappointed selfishly if we don’t get the two full matchday slates over the holiday, but it looks like with Christmas on Saturday we won’t. Probably just a full “Boxing” Sunday with the one match Monday?

  2. Matt says:

    Total bummer that the Arsenal-Chelsea Boxing Day match was moved to Monday afternoon. Now I have to take PTO.

  3. SSReporters says:

    Even better news, Ian Darke will be working next week’s USA/Colombia game.

    Go type in “October 12th” and scroll down to the bottom.

      When is someone going to take a shot at ESPN? This is a travesty, putting so many matches on ESPN3 rather than ESPN2. I’m fortunate that I have access to 3 but would much prefer to see it on the bigscreen in HD. The Spurs vs Everton game has been pre-empted by a repeat of a college football game! I thought ESPN was serious about the EPL (possibly even bidding for more rights in the future). Looks like the same old American view of ‘soccer’, second class sport. I sincerely hope that ESPN get NO more rights and leave the football to the FOX networks (FSC and FSP).
