      Stuart Holden and Mario Melchiot were BRUTAL during Celtic-PSG on Match Day 1. They were clowning around and were doing the infamous Gary Neville/Brandi Chastain “Orgasm” goal call. Holden’s attempts to do pxp were bad.

      Rachel Bonnetta had no clue what she was hosting that day. Her first mistake was to say “national anthem” prior to the UEFA Champions League anthem. Things got worse from there. Facebook was supposed to be a great learn-on-the-job opportunity for Bonnetta, but she wasted at least one day.

      Holden wisely stuck to analysis the next day. A lot more natural sound. Melchiot continued to clown around.

      On Match Day 2, Brian Dunseth replaced Holden. Big difference in quality. Dunseth can do a little bit of play-by-play even though he wasn’t supposed to do any. Melchiot continueed to clown around.

      Looks like Holden is back. Let’s see if he will take his job seriously this time.

        Do you think anyone cares about your commentators analysis? Why do you pretend you are friends with these people and have some type of knowledge or authority on any of this? Creep

          On the contrary, the executives and producers in charge as well as the announcers themselves actually READ my comments, think about what I have to say, and actually implement some of my suggestions.

          I have been doing this for 25 years.

          I don’t get things right all the time.

          Unlike you trolls, I prefer to use my voice constructively.

            And for 25 years how many broadcast executives have hired you?
            No one… no one..has implemented your ideas… get over yourself
            Guessing the obvious doesn’t count..

            But you are good at one thing… stalking female broadcast talent to the point of believing you have delusional relationships with them.

              Yep his acting like he knows all these female presenters and how they met their husbands and about their lives is creepy and bizarre to say the least.

    How does this facebook live thing work? Can you start the match from the beginning anytime like its on demand or must it be watched live? How do you find the match on Facebook? Sorry, I’m new to all these sports streaming things

      You have to watch it live. But usually within 1-2 days after the match, Facebook will make an on-demand version available.

      You can find it on Facebook through the search feature.

      For U.S. residents only (Facebook account required):

      Live stream available at the top of the page.

      On-demand version available usually 2 hours after a match ends.

    Feels good that I paid for Fox Soccer Match Pass since Fox keeps putting games up on Facebook and ESPN3 (which I already subscribe to).
