    Oh I really hate FOX.

  2. Evan says:

    After being able to watch any premier league match I want with NBC, this is awful.

  3. San Fransiscan says:

    Kagawa starts!!! Finally.

  4. christian says:

    I signed up for Fox Soccer 2 Go. I’m a weak weak man.

  5. Christopher Harris says:

    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.

  6. christian says:

    I’m watching MCFC. Hoping for a walk in the park today.

  7. Christopher Harris says:

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

  8. christian says:

    Navas pretty busy early on here. Put a nice low cross in that Nasri was able to put a toe on but the shot goes wide.

  9. rej4sl says:

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

  10. christian says:

    Plzen looks like they can score today. If I were watching this at the bar I’d be ordering doubles from here on in.

  11. Len F says:

    Olympiacos v PSG is highly entertaining. Really wide-open play.

  12. christian says:

    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.

  13. Shyvoodoo says:

    Well at least they are not showing scores of the other games.. Which is good in case u are DVRing another game..

    • PharmaDoc says:

      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!

  14. San Fransiscan says:

    30 seconds in and FOX is back from the commercial break. I really hate them.

  15. christian says:

    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.

  16. christian says:

    There it is. Dzeko from Aguero who won the ball. Easy goal.

  17. christian says:

    Yaya with an insane goal.

  18. christian says:

    MCFC just too much now for Plzen.

  19. Marc L says:

    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.

  20. Wongo1 says:

    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.
