  1. Question for you NBC lovers here on Worldsoccertalk.

    Why on national broadcast televison games (on NBC) don’t they have some sort of a 5 min pre match show that shows players walking out of the tunnel or visual commentary introductions? Instead, they go straight into the game causing the commentators to rush into introducing themselves and not explain the tactical formation of both teams.

    1. There’s usually programming on NBC from Noon-12:30pm ET that prevents them from starting at Noon. Oftentimes it’s kids programming that the network has to show (by FCC regulations). Pre-match analysis is done on NBCSN before they switch over at 12.30pm ET.

    2. My guess is they had the pre game build up on one of the other NBC channels most likely NBCSP then switched over toNBC for the game.

  2. I’ve said it last week. Alexis can be out physical’d off the ball. he has to be able to compete more physically or he’s going to be invisible in a lot of games.

  3. I thought the commentator was a bit harsh on the linesman.

    The off-side seemed marginal at best and per the rules, when in doubt, he must/can give it.

    Wenger should save his grief for his shoddy defence.

  4. Nice comeback from Arsenal, gotta give credit where credit is due.

    Just saw the tail end of Malaga-Bilbao on Bein…disgusting stuff from the referee…the goalie for Bilbao scored a brilliant header to tie the game in stoppage time and the ref called the goal off for god knows what.

    Then, Malaga’s goalie, Kameni, body-checked a Bilbao player about to score on an empty net…no penalty!

    Who appoints these referees? Some disgraceful stuff there. I don’t have any strong feelings about Bilbao one way or another, but this is shameful. Daylight robbery!
