  1. Anyone Know Who Commentator For World Feed Bpurnemouth Vs Liverpool,Jim Beglin In Co-Commentator?I Wrong?

  2. In case anybody is looking or wants them in once place, World Feeds:

    Bolton v Cardiff - Peter Drury & Stewart Robson
    Southend Utd v Hull City - Ben Andrews & Gary O'Reilly
    Sunderland v Kidderminster - Kevin Keatings & Tony Dorigo

  3. Aj. Iam also gutted! That the match was not shown live. its poor decision by fa choosing a less exiciting matches i.e sunderland and cardiff matches over city's game. But fatv's youtube channel will show 2 minutes of highlights tonight.

    1. Someone at ESPN read this. Since Macca doesn't seem to want to anything but studio work at the World Cup, hire Andy Gray.

      1. It's brilliant having him back on TV. Just reading comments from people online and general consensus is that everybody had forgot just how good he is. Been a good 20-odd years since him & Darke have worked together live on air too.

        The all-time classic Tyler/Gray pairing is still my favourite but this today is great and I'm glad BT took the risk of the backlash from it.

        BT commentary wise, he is in a different league to Michael Owen. Makes Owen look even more amateur than he is.

          1. They've still got work to do but considering it's their first year, they're not doing a bad job at all.

            Agreed re Sky. Still a long war ahead of them both but considering it's BT's first year, they've already poached Champions League - not just from Sky, but also ITV's weekly match too! - and they're really looking like they fancy the battle ahead. I'd be pretty nervous in auctions if I was Sky.

            1. The one part of BT Sport I'm not impressed by is Jake Humphrey. Other than that, their studio coverage is a breath of fresh air.

          2. Couldn't agree more about Humphrey. Comes across as really smug to me.

            Not too sure about their addition of Joey Barton to the panel this afternoon either!

            Little bits like that where there are holes that need fixing!

  5. Everton take early lead at Stevenage through Naismith. There's going to be no shock result in this one. Everton should stroll through this and look forward to Tuesday's big derby against Liverpool. Big game that not only for bragging rights but for that all-important 4th spot.

  6. This tweet is interesting.


    Has anyone else heard anything about the Monday match between Man City & Cheksea being moved to Saturday??

    1. Man City-Chelsea is, right now, scheduled for Monday, Feb 3. I don't believe the dates for the FA Cup 4th Round replays have been decided yet, but it's possible that the City-Chelsea match could be moved if Chelsea draw against Stoke tomorrow and the replay happens on Feb 4 or 5.

  7. Just have to leave this here. Altidore was terrible against non league Kidderminster. The players around him were bad, but he has plenty of blame too for the overall performance.

    I hope he can break out this funk.

  8. The FA need to bin that bloody awful pink ball, it's so hard to keep track of.
    Fox reminded me why NBC coverage is so much better.
