New Live Chat Feature Debuts Sunday For Man Utd-Liverpool and Spurs-Arsenal Games

premier league derbies 600x337 New Live Chat Feature Debuts Sunday For Man Utd Liverpool and Spurs Arsenal Games

This Sunday, World Soccer Talk will debut a brand-new feature to our Open Threads. In addition to the usual (and popular) Open Thread where readers can join the conversation in the comments section while watching games, we’ll be offering a live chat of Manchester United against Liverpool and Tottenham versus Arsenal.

The live chat of the games will be integrated into the Open Threads, and will feature Johnathan Starling providing a live chat as well as other news and updates exclusively for World Soccer Talk readers.

Johnathan will be a familiar name to veteran World Soccer Talk readers. He was an integral part of the early years of the EPL Talk website where he hosted live chats, hosted the EPL Talk Podcast and often wrote for the site about the Premier League and world soccer. We can’t wait to have Johnathan back.

The idea behind the live chat is to allow World Soccer Talk readers to watch the games live on television but offer an alternative to the domestic commentary. With the live alternative commentary, World Soccer Talk readers will be able to chat live with other readers and Johnathan directly. And there’s an opportunity for readers to be added live on-air, to share their opinions.

The alternative commentaries won’t be offered for every match, but we’re debuting the new feature this Sunday in the double header featuring Manchester United-Liverpool and Tottenham-Arsenal.

Visit World Soccer Talk on Sunday morning. The live alternative commentary begins at 9:20am ET on the homepage.
