Fox Soccer Plus Could Have a PR Problem

As the Setanta era of soccer broadcasting in America comes to a close, and Fox Soccer Plus looks to fill in its spot, the good people at Newscorp will have to wrestle with one important difference between Setanta and Fox Soccer – the Fox brand. Will consumers spend money for […]

Premier League Preview – Feb. 20-21

Until the Premier League institutes a playoff for the fourth Champions League, we’ll have to settle for matches like Sunday’s clash between Liverpool and Manchester City to decide the fate of the league’s final golden ticket into Europe’s glamour competition. City is a point ahead of the Reds with a […]

Premier League Preview – Feb. 6-7

Another Big Four match and the Merseyside Derby highlight this weekend’s slate, but really, the one key question is this: Will Arsenal fall from title to contender to afterthought in a week’s time? That may sound a bit drastic, but after falling to Manchester United last weekend the Gunners now have to cross London […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 30-Feb. 1

Two of the top three teams in the Premier League table will clash on Sunday when Manchester United come to London to face Arsenal. You won’t want to miss it, and if you check out the EPL Talk TV schedule, you won’t. It’s a huge match for both clubs, but […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 23-27

It might only be for five days, but Manchester United has the chance to jump Arsenal and Chelsea in the league standings when it welcomes Hull City for the only Premier League game scheduled for the weekend on Saturday. It’s an FA Cup weekend, after all. But there’s still plenty […]

EPL Talk Forums Open!

EPL talk has gone under a number of changes in recent months and is constantly growing. Now with a number of sister sites (including this very Championship Talk site!), the team is broadening it’s horizons and trying to bring you the latest news on all matters football as well as […]

Premier League Preview – Jan. 9-11

So, will he or won’t he? Will Landon Donovan, now on loan at Everton, get on the field at the Emirates this weekend? He’s easily the most polarizing figure in American soccer and the debate on whether he’s the best player ever to pull on a national team shirt or […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 26-27

Happy Holidays! It’s Christmas Eve, so I would be remiss if this week’s preview didn’t have a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus/Ashura theme. I’m more of a Christmas kind of guy myself, so that’s the direction I’ll be heading in first. It may not have come upon a midnight clear, but this is the […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 19-21

The season chugs on towards the half-way point, and while this weekend’s fixture list might be lacking a marquee matchup, the need for points is still critical for all of the teams. Here’s the TV schedule. And now, on with the preview: Portsmouth vs. Liverpool Fratton Park is the venue for […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 12-13

  How many “Liverpool must win” stories can be written about this year’s squad? Well, at least one more. Already 12 points adrift of Chelsea and headed for the Europa League, the shine off the 2009-2010 campaign is fading fast. At least Sunday’s latest all-or-nothing fixture with Arsenal is at […]

Premier League Preview, Dec. 5-6

A clash of the wealthy highlights this weekend’s schedule as Chelsea pay a visit to the blue side of Manchester to face City. And no, there’s no truth to the rumor that Mark Hughes will be on hand in South Africa for the World Cup festivities. I can understand where […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 28-29

It hasn’t been a great week for Liverpool, with its elimination from contention for the knockout stages of the Champions League casting a larger shadow on a season that’s already looking a bit dim. It hasn’t been a much better week for Everton, with a 3-2 loss at Hull in […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 21-22

After an International break that completed the 32-team field for the World Cup next summer in South Africa, the EPL surges back to action this weekend with an important fixture at Anfield. That game is on ESPN in glorious high definition. Here’s the entire TV schedule. Now, on to the […]

Premier League Preview, Nov. 7-9

Does it get much better? Manchester United visits Chelsea this weekend with first place on the line. I could stop there, but then this wouldn’t be much of a preview, would it? Before we get into the games, check out the TV schedule. And don’t forget to tab the winners […]

Premier League Preview, Oct. 31-Nov. 1

The North London Derby highlights this week’s slate of games as Arsenal prepares to entertain Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Somebody in Bristol is smiling today, as the early match on ESPN figures to be the most-watched game yet on the network. It’s on at 8:45 a.m. on ESPN2, if you’re […]

Premier League Preview – Oct. 17-19

The international break is over, so it’s time to get back to work for the guys in the EPL. The weekend starts with a bang as Chelsea makes the trip to Birmingham to face Aston Villa and wraps up with a battle of bottom dwellers on Monday when Hull City […]

MLS Weekend Wrap

Major League Soccer has provided us with little relief to the usual summer doldrums. As happens most MLS seasons the combination of high temperatures, half full stadiums and international call ups hurt the quality of football and make MLS in many ways a laughingstock of world football. MLS’ midweek performances […]

Thoughts on the Hexagonal

The United States got a rude welcome to 2009 this morning. A day after agreeing to a friendly with Sweden to conclude the traditional January camp, Bob Bradley’s men were handed an opening date of qualifying versus Mexico at home. The United States has not lost at home to Mexico […]

Return of the Glory Days to Molineux?

If I asked you to name the big four in English football, chances are you would reply with Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. You’d be wrong though. In fact, instead of the Blues, it is Wolverhampton Wanderers who find themselves firmly cemented in the top four in terms of […]
