    In yesterday’s games, they had the Fox studio hosts commentating on their main game on FS1, Real vs Juve, while they had the international commentators (Gary Birtles) on the Bayern game that was on FS2. Today, the Liverpool-City game is on FS2 (Barca-Roma is their main game on FS1), so perhaps that gets the live feed again. Let’s hope so.

    So disappointing…this is shaping up as one of the best CL competitions in memory. You could have Bayern; Barca; Real (or Juve); and the winner of the English matchup in the semis. At least Fox can send their announcers to the stadium to give a live feel.

    “Keith Costigan and Warren Barton.” Fox really are just so cheap;
    who’s doing the World Cup? Lionel Bienvenu?

    Any idea who will be doing the Liverpool-City game on Wednesday? Will it be broadcast from the FOX studio in LA?

      Gaffer has more information than I do but I believe Fox is going to use it’s domestic LA crew until the end of the season and that includes the Final. It is very sad but what can we do? Fox Sports has less than a month of Champions League coverage. I believe they’re angry for losing the rights to Turner Sports and they’re taking it out on the viewers.

        They’re using these matches as ‘rehearsals’ for their world cup commentary teams. The fact that you actually think they’re “taking it out on the viewers” is beyond absurd.

          April 2, 2018 at 9:56 am

          Hello MAHLUF
          Fox Sports is the same network that hired Gus Johnson a few years back, remember him and his commentary? How did that turn out?

            Hello Azer
            Not sure what hiring Gus Johnson has to do with “taking it out on the viewers”, but whatever tickles your pickle. I may be wrong, but they ended that experiment pretty quickly.,

      Burnsey, if I had to guess, it’ll be Keith Costigan and Warren Barton.

      I guess understanding the storm of criticism coming their way the switched back to the international feed with legend Martin Tyler.. still had the LA booth amateurs on Fox Sports 1… knowing the way they operate they will have their cronies on the important 2nd leg. Enjoy the moment….

    UK Commentary teams for SKY SPORTS
    Crystal Palace v Liverpool Rob Hawthorne & Andy Hinchcliffe
    Man Utd v Swansea Alan Parry & Davie Provan

    I’m watching the Man City-Everton match on NBC – what game is Lee Dixon watching?
    Bolassie just misses on an acrobatic header with a Man City defender on him and Dixon says Bolassie should have done better.
    Then Gabriel Jesus scores on a header that is straight at Jordan Pickford and bounces off Pickford’s shoulder into the next because he bizarrely moved to the right – and Dixon says there’s nothing Pickford could do.
    Then Sterliing misses a shot from distance that just barely misses the net – and Dixon says he should have done better.
    Dixon is terrible. NBC should spend some money, replace him and LeSaux and recruit Jermaine Jenas from the BBC to be the main analyst.

      ‘into the net” – not “into the next.” So irritated I can barely type – lol!

    Not as complete a list as usual. (Maybe NBC didn’t provide the rest of,the commentators)

      It’s there. The article is broken up into separate pages.

        I hadn’t noticed that. Thanks so much!

    That’s too bad: no Peter Drury

    • FlatBackFour

      March 30, 2018 at 1:33 pm

      If you want to catch Peter Drury, he’s doing the world feed for the Everton v Man City match on Saturday and Chelsea v Spurs on Sunday. Co-comm is Jim Beglin for both.
