  1. If you are expecting to see the game on NBCSN forget it. They've got formula 1. Is formula 1 a bigger draw for NBC than the EPL? Surely not.

    1. The last few F1 races aired on CNBC due to NBCSN having other commitments (mainly the Tour de France). I guess NBCSN couldn't move even more races, even though (I think) EPL would get more viewers.

      Mind you at least when NBC moves games, they move them to channels which the large majority of NBCSN viewers can get (CNBC/USA Network). That I can't say for other broadcasters - looking at you FOX & FS2...

  2. I can't recall hearing Ian Darke calling an NBC Premier League broadcast. How is this happening? Did he leave ESPN?

    1. He's doing the international feed for IMG. Pure coincidence. He commentated 1-2 games last year that we heard on NBC.

  3. Who was the idiot who said that at least there wouldn't be any drama with Stoke this season? I need to talk to that guy.

    Oh...wait.... :-/

  4. Remember the Rodwell "dont sign for City" quotes. Turns out, as speculated by many, that the media took part of a sentence out of context to make an attention-grabbing headline.

    He clarified what he really said at his Sunderland unveiling (yesterday i believe).


  5. Did Time Warner Cable drop support of Live Extra? I'm now being prompted to login to the app but Time Warner is no longer on the list of providers.

    1. Same problem here. I watched a game on the app yesterday, so it seems odd that it would have changed so quickly.

      1. When it cut over to that game i was shocked to see Stoke sitting with 7 men back when they had the extra man.

  6. Lets not get carried away with the Spurs you beat West Ham and QPR. They have looked good but not the strongest competition.

  7. Two matches don't make a season, but Stoke needs to get it in gear or Fly may get his wish.

    I know. Sparky OUT! 😉
