  1. 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. here is the espn scehdule. some games will only be on espn3.com though.

    Wolverhampton Wanderers
    Oct. 2 9:55 AM ESPN2 / ESPN3. com Sunderland vs. Manchester
    Oct. 16 9:55 AM ESPN2 / ESPN3. com Manchester United vs. West
    Oct. 18 2:55 PM ESPN3.com Blackburn Rovers vs.

    Oct. 30 9:55 AM ESPN3.com Blackburn Rovers vs.

    1. 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).
