    Just looked at the FSW schedule and am happy to report that I won't be doing anything productive this weekend. FA Cup, excellent EPL line-up and a good MLS match.

    Can't wait.

    Not to mention two decent Bundesligia matches, Frankfort v Stuttgart on Saturday and Bayern Munich v Borrusia Dortmund on Sunday....both live. Both Stuttgart and Bayern have shown well in the Champions League and they are fighting it out for the top spot in the Bundesligia.

    Annnnnnnnnddddd, if you have GolTV, Saturday is kind of lame, but Sunday....wooooo Mama:

    Parma v Inter live
    Juventus v Udinese live
    Roma v Lazio delay
    Barcelona v Real Betis delay
    Sevilla v Real Madrid delay

    If you have both channels, and are so inclined, you could watch top flight European football and an MLS playoff match from 8 am until 11:30 pm with not more than an hour of downtime. Holy Crap thats a lot of soccer.

    With the MLS Shootout Package, Gol TV, and FSW...

    if I wasn't married already, I probably never would be.

    Really though, all this soccer on allll day long every weekend has made me into a sort of snob. I'm only going to try and watch Liverpool-ManUtd and Roma-Lazio.

    Why anything else when you've got the best?

    Hey....are you implying that the Yeovil Town v Wrexham FA Cup game on Saturday is NOT a match up of Titans????

    LOL! :D

    I know what you mean. When I first got my Dish, I greadily watched every game I could, taping a lot of them if my familial duties would interfere with the broadcast. (I love my wife and kids, really) Now, after having gotten used to this wealth of soccer on TV, I am more discerning about which game I will tune into. Which is amazing that I can tell which games have promise. You can really compress years of soccer education through viewing into a short period of time here.

    I love to show the online schedule to soccer haters and point out that there is as much soccer on air in the US as practically any other sport. Sometimes I tune into Gol just to hear the broadcasters speak with familiarity about the relative strengths and weaknesses of Bolivian and Peruvian players. It amazes me that this is happening.

    well, my parades been rained on. i'm still excited about a weekend of good soccer on fsw, but i'll be jealous of those who can be snobbish.

    one day i'll be old and married. then i'll be able to allocate bar money toward a better television package.

    until then i'll be happy to wake up at 0630 and watch wolves v. birmingham with an ungodly hangover.

    heres to a weekend of good soccer on tv.

    Cheers!

    Hi guys, i'm sure none of you watch French football, but there's a big game on FSW Sunday at 5:30pm: Marseille-Lyon, so you should check it out.

    There will be some high quality players duking it out like Juninho, Elber, Carriere, Govou, Edmilson, Christanval, Drogba, Mido, Van Buyten, Marlet etc.
    Plus the atmosphere should be nice with 60,000 fans.

    There is nothing wrong with a good French League match. I try to watch the French match every week.

    Cool, this one should be an entertaining one. Enjoy.

    By the way, the game is actually being shown at 6pm everyone, not 5:30.

    I know this is all about Fox Sports, but while we're on the subject of classic matchups, there's another one this weekend...

    1:00 PM ET Club America vs. Chivas Guadalajara, live on Univision

    THE Mexican Super Clasico!

    And to think they'll both have clubs in MLS eventually should make all of you even more interested in the match.

    See the future NOW!!

    panicfc,

    Not that a Stuttgart win would be all that big of a surprise, but I hope that when I watch my tape of Saturday's FSW Bundesliga match I don't find that anyone "kicked ass" and won the match fairly easily.

    Because that would kind of defeat the purpose of taping the thing, and going out of my way not to find out the outcome before I had a chance to watch the video.

    Sorry Dave, I meant that they are top of the league and playing well. I would have said the same about a Bayer match as well.

    I find both teams fun to watch.

    "i came over here to start a thread entitled, "anyone else getting sick of all the rugby on FSW recently?" but i can see it wouldnt make much sense."

    Your complaint will be heard loud and clear this weekend, when all the Euro leagues are on an international break. That means no football for us yanks, as no one but the PPV hogs show those games. So, its all rugby this weekend on FSW, except for one MLS playoff match and Brazilian league game. Oh well, I'm pretty full from this weekend, that ought to hold me over.

    Is there ANY way we could convince FSW to show yesterday's Quakes - Galaxy match this week? I know a ton of people who would watch and tape it. Game of the year, and according to Bruce Arena who was in attendance, it was the best match in MLS history. Deserves to be shown on TV, I think...

    Quaker,
    That is an excellent idea. I'm sure if you wrote to the fellas at FSW they would at least listen. I know they have that Fox Populi thingamachig where you can call in your suggestions. I'm sure you can find some contact info on FSW.com. Be sure to update us if you hear anything.
