  1. Looking forward to this one. Goodson at Dark has proven to be fun to watch.

    MNF is already putting their best foot forward. They analyzed City’s defense, Torres’ mentality, and now they’re on United’s issues.

  2. Carragher and Neville are having a “YouTube moment” right now. They’re both describing Alex Ferguson and his influence. While also stating that Moyes will be given time to figure this out. Good stuff.

    Now they’re on to analyzing Arsenal.

    Such good stuff.

  3. This NBC Live Extra app is really impressive. The instant highlights system is great, it allows me to listen, then click on the highlight to see the main action.

    Interestingly though, if you are not live, I was about 5 minutes behind, the goal highlight showed up even though I had not reached that point :)
