      1. I switched FOX on for a few minutes. What a mistake that was. FOX is still playing up their FUN angle, which — for soccer fans — is a joke. No substance. Just fluff.

  1. If anyone is watching the games live today, and you see a match that is particularly wonderful to watch, let us know in the comments section below. I’m watching Galatasaray vs Real Madrid and Man United vs Leverkusen, but there are 6 other matches on today.

  2. Great atmosphere at Galatasaray stadium. And an incredible tifo on display with pictures of lions scaring Ronaldo and Pirlo away.

  3. Watching MUFC – and hating every minute of Fox Sports 1 coverage – just can’t stop looking at that scroll bar …. bleugh ….

  4. MCFC just had two great scoring opportunities. Dzeko missed a header that he should have put home and Aguero just hit the post. Things are looking up but Plzen has moments of great attack.

    1. Unfortunately, that was only true during the live games. I don’t get FS2 in my area, so I was watching the Man City game on replay. Twelve minutes in, and that abominable crawl spews out the final scores of ALL EIGHT matches, including that same Man City game they were currently showing.

      Idiots! There goes my incentive to sign up for Fox Soccer 2 Go. Grrrrr!

  5. It’s great to play against a team who will actually run with you but MCFC can’t finish anything off. Hoping for a better second half.

  6. Are Niall Quinn and that tw@ Tyler going to start breaking down in tears yet? Well it would take a rag loss for that to full-on happen, but still.

  7. Did anyone of us miss the braying Donkeys on Fox? You would have thought they had watched how NBC is doing it and the praise they are getting and would have said hey let’s fix our broadcast…..NO they continue with the idiots and that clown the constantly says THE AMERICANNNNNN!!! What is putz.
