    Thank you, Thank you. I started to listen to that podcast and in the first 2 mins Rebecca said why don't we just do away with changing the clocks altogether? Et Voila a day or two later the US Senate does just that! I knew she was good, but didn't know she was prescient.

    Seriously I'm a big big fan of Lady Lowe. And I really hope my reading of the tea leaves is 180 degrees wrong, about her lady replacements on NBC this week.

    p.s. I'll try to come back to listen to the rest of that podcast later. I've heard about the Highbury Squad lady but never really heard her much.

    It happened again! I should've known better.

    I was watching the end of today's postmatch coverage and had 5-10 mins to go when I paused it to do something else. When I came back Roku was ominously in it's screensaver mode and when I pressed play up came some random NBC live channel sportstalk show with Paul Burmeister.

    OK, I thought I'll go back and restart the match coverage and fast forward to the end and watch the last 10 mins. Nope! When I tried to do that it says "Replay Available Soon". And then I realized that even if it was available they would've chopped off the studio postgame stuff and the replay would end right after the FT whistle.

    Seriously WHY do they have to do this?

    Why not just let me keep the stream paused indefinitely, just as my DVR would let me do?

    Why not let the replay contain the same full show that you broadcasted live, including the pre/post-game studio stuff?

    Why not provide the replay immediately after the live broadcast is finished?

    Sorry to bitch so much about this... it just seems so dumb, customer-unfriendly, and a step backwards... several steps actually.

    I'm just about finished listening to that HighburySquad show. Thanks again to @unclesox

    Nice to see the other side of Rebecca Lowe, the unfiltered side. BUT I'm not sure I really wanted to hear all her indignant, opinionated banter. I think I might like the NBC-broadcast-TV Rebecca more than the unfiltered-Internet Rebecca. Knocks her off the pedestal a bit.

    I really really love what she does as the face of the EPL in USA, and I truly hope that now she & her hubby have become US citizens, that she sticks to that role, at least through the NBC rights contract, if not beyond? I know that probably won't happen but...

    Caught Cara Banks again. She’s good. And really assured. So I looked up her background and found out she’s a veteran presenter on Golf Channel. And seems to know her English footy too!

    I’ve been missing MIB shows this year since I generally can’t watch em live and since NBC took them off TV and made them harder to find and watch on replay.

    I’d really like to watch today’s show with Jesse Marsch, so I’d like to ask y’all if you know how best I can find it in a day or two or three from now?

    TIA

    It's on Peacock, so shouldn't it be in their archives?

    You'd think so.

    Yes it should. And yes it is! Along with all of this seasons shows. :)

    But I swear the last couple of times I’ve gone looking for amI be a month or two back, they were nowhere to be found on Peacock.

    I think someone must have fixed something. Maybe they were Reading this forum? ;)

    1 minute into 2T of Southampton-Arsenal the Peacock stream starts showing ads, and then says "Coverage will resume shortly". We lost about 4 mins of the game until it was fixed as abruptly as it was broken.

    What causes this? Can't they come up with some more friendly or knowing message like "technical difficulties"?

    Ah, the wonderful new world of streaming.

    Does anyone know if Peacock will have all the Premier League games in Spanish next season. I heard they're significantly expxnding their Dpanish language content in the fall.

    The Kentucky Derby headwear is looking a tad silly on the PL crew today. With the exception of Robbie Earle who looks beautifully Rude Boy in his pork pie.

    (We’ll find/post photo later)

    NBC's production team still don't seem to understand fans who are die-hard for their team.

    Today seconds after FT of the Arsenal-Everton match they switched to the exciting finale at Manchester. I think they did this for every other match actually. And I'm pretty sure this is NBC's doing, rather than the EPL's world feed folks.

    I was already keeping an eye on that City-Villa match via the Goal Rush stream on my tablet. If I'd wanted to stop watching my own team's match and post-match, I could've easily switched channels to watch the title being clinched. But I did not want that.

    I chose to watch my team's match primarily, even though exciting stuff was happening in many other games. And this being the last match, it's always nice to see players & staff reactions, post-match interviews, laps of honor, etc.

    In years past we used to get this "extended coverage" (on NBC and before that on Fox). But something changed in the last several years where the powers-that-be generally switch away from games almost instantly. I remember the same thing happened on the final day of last season, and maybe the one prior.

    This continues to be an annoyance to people who are primarily fans of one team rather than the league in general.

    p.s. They could remedy this somewhat if their "full event replay" showed the complete coverage of each match including the post-match "activities". But no... when I went to the replay, there's exactly the same cut-off at FT, or in this case the switch to Man City stadium.
