  1. Christopher Harris says:

    Nice work by NBC to let the crowd do the talking while they’re walking out of the tunnel, so we could hear “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” by West Ham United supporters.

  2. Jim says:

    West Ham are playing like the away team. West Brom look good and should win this one in the end. Still at 1-1 it’s anyone’s game.

  3. Jim says:

    That second Anelka goal has really deflated West Ham. What will Fat Sam do now?

  4. Marc L says:

    Rebecca, you’re killing me. Any other clubs you want to mention on Anelka’s CV? And more recently than Arsenal, Liverpool and Real Madrid, maybe?

  5. Christopher Harris says:

    How much longer will it be before Saido Berahino gets his first England cap? What skill by the 20-year-old.

  6. francis says:

    Great game to start the weekend! Hopefully more good action to come

  7. Andre says:

    Extremely entertaining game as a neutral. I really enjoyed that. Berahino was excellent.

    Switching gears: if Mirallas had just made brown on himself instead of running off the field the other day, would he have been required to change his kit, like when a guy is cut and bleeds?

  8. Christopher Harris says:

    Anyone else having a problem with NBC Sports Live Extra stopping and restarting? I’m experiencing it while watching Aston Villa-Swansea.

    • Todd says:

      I am as well. It was stopping and starting, now it’s buffering for longer periods of time.

      • Christopher Harris says:

        I’m sure it’s because they decided to put the Norwich-MUFC game on NBC Sports Live Extra (and PL Extra Time). Whenever United are on NBC Sports Live Extra, the system seems to suffer from the surge in viewers.

  9. abdirahman says:

    both manchester clubs are winning 1-0. Swansea are really struggling at the moment.and how about this hull city 6 fulham0.

  10. abdirahman says:

    surely. Alan curbishley won’t be in the studio tomorrow having seen his team humilated by hull.

  11. San Fransiscan says:

    Thank you NBC Live Extra, you made me hate the word buffering. Then again who doesn’t?

    Seriously I had enough of this with NBC Live Extra. Every single time I watch United on Live Extra this happens.

  12. Smokey Bacon says:

    Who is Sunderland’s #3? I don’t think I’ve seen a fatter footballer in the EPL.

  13. Christopher Harris says:

    Jozy misses an open goal. Ouch.

  14. Christopher Harris says:

    Everything’s going according to plan for Vincent Tan today.

  15. abdirahman says:

    what happened to borini hardly hear banyard what he said?

  16. Smokey Bacon says:

    Mad man Tan looks pissed. Someone is getting fired for that.

  17. Guy says:

    Lovely finish to the Cardiff match. :-)
