    Hey all,
    Just wondering what the best internet feed for a British soccer radio show would be. I listen to the Big Soccer radio, but I can only take so many replays of it.

    I've checked the BBC website, but can't seem to find stuff that's new.

    Can anyone help me out? Thanks.

    The Beebs 606 is my favourite one.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/606/
    It's on Sat's, Sun's, and Wed's night's.

    Actually, it's more like 1 or 2pm. there's a scedule there somewhere.
    Chiles, Chappers and Spoony are class.

    I also listen to talksport.
    http://www.talksport.co.uk/default.aspx

    I reckon these two are the main ones that run England for footy radio.
    It's sort of like Liverpool and Everton. You either listen to one or the other.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    I like TalkSport. They do Football First weeknights at 2:00 Eastern. Tomorrow and Wednesday they'll have League Cup games.

    Talksport all the way. It's footie talk most of the morning and then in the afternoon and evening. You also have other great presenters on it talking about current affairs like James Whale and Mike Dickin. Both are reknowned presenters and very hard hitting.

    Having said that, the BBC's 606 is a pretty good too football phone in as well.

    BBC Five Live. Listen to live matches then 606 comes on after them.

    As far as I know (and correct me if I'm wrong), but the BBC is the only one that commentates on games live, WHILE ACTUALLY AT THE GAME. Talksport watch the game on a monitor/TV, add sound FX and commentate on that.

    I may be wrong, but I think TalkSport actually sends commentators to all games they cover, except for the England internationals (when they clearly state they're commentating from the studio).

    Correction to my above post, TalkSport is not streaming the Carling Cup games online. BBC Five Live is though.

    Personally I enjoy listening to Talk Sport much more than i do 5 Live.

    James Whale is fun.

    I'm stuck with BBC since the software that Talksport uses for its broadcast (Abcast?) raises all sorts of security flags on my system and wrecks my vpn link.

    I've used this link in the past to get radio links for games:

    BBC doesn't broadcast EPL outside the UK. Try www.socceraudio.com, they'll have the link you need.
