At this time of year, everyone does lists of best of and worst of...in this case, it is not what is best/worst on the pitch, but rather how the beautiful game was covered by the media in 2007. I'm sure everyone has their opinions on this one... My picks: Best: 1. Unprecidented coverage of summer tournaments in 2007....every game of: Gold Cup, Copa America (in English via GOLTV), FIFA's U-20 and U-17 World Cups on ESPNU and ESPN360, UEFA's U-21 Championship on ESPN Deportes and ESPN360, the Asian Cup on Setanta, and the Women's World Cup on ESPN/ESPN2. 2. Better coverage of the Premiership. Last year, when Fox began their sublicense agreement with Setanta, it seemed that they were just shifting the best games over to the Irish broadcaster. Then, at the start of this year, it looked like Fox was going to ruin everything by throwing some matches on PPV broadband exclusively. But now, coverage is more comprehensive than ever.. with both stations often showing more games on a matchday than we had come to expect. For example, a fan can see all nine Boxing Day fixtures this coming Wednesday. Setanta has had Saturdays where they show a fourth match, and FSC shows an extra Sunday match (in addition to their 11 am ET match) when it featres an attractive team. 3. The best new discussion show, "Soccer Matters", began on Setanta this season. Nice to hear talk from literate newspapermen who are covering the games for the British press. Worst: 1. The disappearance of Abu Dhabi Sports....okay, most of you won't know what to make of this one, but I enjoyed watching events like the Asian Olympic qualifying matches and the AFC Champions League matches on this satellite station throughout the year. Since the beginning of December, there has been nothing but their logo on the screen 24/7, and there has been nothing I can find on the internet that discusses what happened (although I can guess). 2. The sale of soccertv.com....while its fate has yet to be seen, Oliver has changed his notification on the site from a confirmation to users of the site of a smooth transition. Now it states that the new owner is a "Veteran Internet domain name speculator", and there is no talk of transition. It seems likely that the new owner wants the site name, but not the listing service presently provided. Perhaps a broadband "telecaster" (such as jumptv) is what is in store for the webname. 3. ESPN constantly cutting away from any LA Galaxy game to show David Beckham scratching his head (or any other body part) sitting on the bench. Then again, they interrupt the match every half-hour to show a sports update while the match is in progress. Will someone tell them that they could do that during halftime?
