    WRT the threat of CONCACAF qualifiers being on PPV… I remember trying to watch US away matches on that janky Go90 app because so many of the CONCACAF countries had sold their home rights to Bein, which was a massive ordeal to get in some areas at the time. Twitter was ablaze with furious US fans (even before That Game in Couva) because they couldn’t get Go90 to work. PPV probably would have been a better experience than that — Go90 made Peacock look like the best app in the history of streaming, lol.

    Finally getting back to talking more about the games then about streaming of the games. I find, like you two said that often in games between the big 4(6) they get 90% of the analysis and comments after and during games. Sure the top teams have more (bandwagon) followers then the rest of the EPL but their jobs should be to cover both teams. Last weeks hammering of Man. U. was great, they have more ex-players as pundits then any other team and get special treatment. But any talk of balance in the league is not true, over the season the big spenders usually raise to the top, unless this ineptitude continues.

    I agree JP, I really do not see a need for a studio if there is a good commentator that gives a good pre-game analysis and recaps at halftime and end of match. And I do watch a lot of matches on beIN Sports Connect and ESPN+.

    Think you’re both putting too much expectations on studio analysis. For the most part I ignore it even for traditional American sports and just watch the games. All that’s needed it a little lineup analysis prematch and then recap of the big moments at HT and end of match or cut to post match interviews.

    Even the commentator recap and highlights from the world feed on ESPN+ matches are just fine, no studio at all.

    Not sure if the majority of viewers agree, but I think it’s completely disposable and the main purpose is to bookend the match and give it an air of professionalism/importance instead of the ‘flip the switch’ method FS2 often used for Bundesliga.

    Chris, you aren’t enjoying the games because no fans can show up because there is a pandemic?

    1st world problem much?

    In case you missed it: pandemic. You may think you are being mindful of that, but you really aren’t. Enjoy your football.

      Will, I’m enjoying the games. I’m just missing the fans being in the stadiums.
