    That city away kit looks familiar but for the life of me I can’t remember which team it looks like.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      It reminds me of one of the old Crystal Palace away shirts — http://www.oldfootballshirts.com/img/shirts/28/crystal-palace-away-football-shirt-1999-2000-s_24451_1.jpg

      • Mufc77 says:

        Didn’t Inter Milan have a similar white kit a couple season ago?

        Not a good start for city. Joe Hart came of his line for that ball and was nowhere near close to getting it.

  2. Mufc77 says:

    Talk about being handed a chance on a plate. Aguero couldn’t have asked for a easier Finnish

  3. Len F says:

    Recently switched to Time Warner from DirecTV (long story) and am using their Roku channel to stream my programming instead of paying for extra boxes. I was wondering if anybody else was doing this and if they notice any differences in what you receive with your Roku and what you receive with your TW box? For example, Fox Sports 2 is not available locally yet it is available to stream on my Roku.

    • jennifer says:

      We haven’t seen this personally but I have read of similar experiences. Someone on the TWC forum mentioned being able to view BeIn on the TWC app without having it avail as part of his cable package.

  4. Evan says:

    This Fox Soccer 2 Go stream isn’t that great. I don’t think the problem is on their end though.

  5. Marc L says:

    Oh FFS, please get better Vincent Kompany. I can’t take watching this defensive play for a lot longer.

    Just wish Toure could have put one in in front of those racist thug pigs.

  6. Mufc77 says:

    Warron Barton has the personality of a golf ball. I forgot how bad theses people at fox are.

  7. goatslookshifty says:

    Gary Neville: “Real Sociedad are playing like their on the Waltzers”
    That reference alone is why is love English commentators!

  8. Christopher Harris says:

    Is anyone interested in creating a GIF or JPG that is a Warren Barton Bingo drinking game?

    Two of the words that should appear on it are ENERGY and TEMPO.

    What other words should be included?
