Pilot Episode of My Beautiful Game Soccer Documentary [VIDEO]

You can probably count the number of hours before FOX Soccer or the Premier League asks for this video to be removed due to copyright infringements, so watch it while you can. It’s the pilot episode of what eventually became My Beautiful Game.

The original name for the documentary was ‘The Greatest Goal I Ever Saw.’ It’s interesting to watch this one to see how certain parts (including some of the interviews) stayed in the final version that was aired on television, as well as to see how many things were removed.

One part I liked the pilot compared to the final version is that the interviews are longer. One of my criticisms of the FOX Soccer documentary series was that it was choppy at times, where it felt like sound bites were thrown at you one after another in quick succession.

I do prefer that FOX Soccer picked the ‘My Beautiful Game’ name instead of using “The Greatest Goal I Ever Saw,” which is a bit of a mouthful.

    This has nothing to do with this post…but I just went to the TV schedule and was forced to watch a commercial in order to view the schedule. I am in absolute shock right now. The most useful part of this site placed behind an ad-wall. I have officially lost all faith in humanity. Good day.

      The TV schedule is painstakingly updated throughout the entire year and requires a ton of work. All of our content on EPL Talk is provided free-of-charge, so 30 seconds of your time to watch a video is a fair exchange in my opinion. We have to find ways to pay the bills in order to keep EPL Talk running.

        How about a donation based system to skip thru the ad’s?

    Another criticism: comments from people that we don’t care to hear from and unrelated to the game. Would have preferred former players/managers/coaches and current players/managers/coaches sharing their views.
