    So it’s basically a Press Pass return of sorts for the US. Any word on if the show will be online?

  2. saywhat? says:

    Do they focus on all leagues around the world? Will they give attention to the premier league even though ESPN doesnt have the rights?

  3. DiscoBallsDeep says:

    Tommy Smyth and Steve Nicol are going to make this show unwatchable.

  4. Matt says:

    Whoa. 5:30pm ET? Excellent.

  5. Jim says:

    Looks like I’ll need DVR if I’m going to be able to watch this. Hope they has some stuff on the BPL or Bundesliga.

  6. Jessica says:

    This is great news but will the ESPN FC website show highlights too???? Also will NBC air free highlights on their website or do they want us to pay for that too????

  7. sucka99 says:

    So basically 30 minutes of Tommy Smyth being ridiculous, Steve Nichol being obtuse, and the host trying to goad Gab Marcotti or Stuart Robson or Craig Burley or Raf Honegstein or whoever they manage to grab off the Sky/BT/NBC scrap heap into answering a ridiculous hypothetical?

    I’m in! Because there probably won’t be anything better to watch.

    • Guy says:

      That’s what I needed. Closure! :-)

    • rkujay says:

      Given this, versus whatever fox is going to throw at us, I’m in.
      Fox won’t give much lip service to the ‘second tier’ BPL, you can bet on that. They will pump the heck out of the Champions League and whatever else they think they can shove down the viewers throats.

    Can someone please the link online?? Why did they name it “ESPN FC” it’s also the website’s name for God sake! Makes it really difficult for search engines to get the video link.
