    Five-and-a-half hours to go before kickoff at this writing, but a game this big this early in the season, and with Tim Howard's participation for Manchester United in it notwithstanding, it's never to early to start the game thread. :D

    Top two teams in the Premiership, and Howard has been playing magnificently for United so far this season.

    Howard has seen Arsenal before, with his heroic performance against the Gunners in the Community Shield match where his saves in the penalty shootout began to earn him cult status to the Old Trafford faithful, and his legend there has only blossomed from that.

    Round-up of pregame articles (please add to this list as required)...


    That should do it with the articles, but feel free to add more...

    As far as the TV angle goes, live on pay-per-view in the USA at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET, and live on Fox Sports World-Canada, and we've got it live here in Australia, too, via Fox Sports 1 at 1 a.m. Sunday night/Monday morning Melbourne time.

    But as I said on another thread, I don't get that channel here on my cable system, and I'll be tuning in to the webcast on Man Utd's website, as well as complementing that with text commentary from www.sportinglife.com.

    That webcast is free, but you have to register for it. That's the best option for webcasts, as arsenal.com is a pay service.

    Can't wait to get started! :D

    Will also point out that FSW generally carries the Sunday PPV on tape delay on Wed. nights,so if that holds true this will be on 8 ET Wed.

    Confirmed. Good onya, Russ.

    A pattern we all should remember, methinks... doesn't do me any good, but a nice pattern nonetheless. :)

    Hey, what time (ET) does the game start???


    I'm here at work (Yes, on a Sunday morning), but maybe I'll be able to run to the pub next door and catch most of it when I get off from here.

    If not, I'll just go to Soccernet.com for their matchtracker, and also keep up with you guys here of course for comments.;)

    Thanx! I guess it's a date with the Matchtracker for me. Not that it's a bad thing.

    Here's to hoping ManUre's backline abandons Tim, he makes 25 miraculous saves beaten only by a Rio botched clearance for an OG and the 1-0 win by Arsenal.

    actually I should just make that a macro, and just replace the "Arsenal" with the opponent of each match.

    Nope, it's free, but you have to register for it. Only takes a few minutes, and all you have to do is go to Manchester United's official site at www.manutd.com and follow the prompts.

    You don't, honest. :)

    Go here, http://www.manutd.com/home/default.sps, and click on the MU.tv link at the top of the page. That's you free gateway to the live audio.

    Midwest, the real one.
    Can they make that registration any more confusing? I did the whole thing twice, then they ask for a username to log in, but they never gave me one! So now they got all my personal info, and I get jack *#*#*#*#.

    It is confusing, I agree. I had to register and re-register three times over the last couple of weeks before I got my subscription to work. I hope this isn't happening with everyone, now or ever.

    For the record, I would try and log in at 15 minutes before the hour (eg., 7:45 am PT, 10:45 am ET, etc.). I just got audio, but it was from last week's Premiership game against Charlton. So I think the live webcast comes on at quarter-to.

    And it seems to be working spot-on for me in IE, as opposed to Netscape (usually my preferred browser).

    Oh, and footyfreak007, check your PM's. :)

    Wiltord should be starting ahead of Bergkamp. This is good news for Howard.

    No worries, will try. :)

    Which is the webcast that you're looking for? The audio, or the video?

    The audio is free (and I'm listening to it now), but I think that the streaming video requires an upgrade to a pay service.

    But I'll e-mail you the links again.

    Just double-checked via Soccernet, and it's no oversight, Bergkamp starts with Wiltord on the subs bench.

    Indeed, a good break for Howard. Not like he needs it, though, in the way that he's been playing lately. :)

    AF signing autographs before the game. Not something you see very often in the US before huge games.
