Your number one source of soccer news, info, and entertainment is...
Kind of redundant to ask bigsoccer posters
TV, actually. Just watching UEFA Cup highlights now.
I get most of my info on the internet...
Internet is Number 1 but, TV is a close 2 thanks to the lovely Michelle Lissel & her cohorts on the Fox Sports World Report.
went with internet, although print is a very close second
mlsnet, espn, si and this place just give too much info to go with print... which unfortunately doesn't have the best of reporters everywhere
although i will take the time to commend a few... jack bell (ny times), steve goff (washinton post) and the guy from the north jersey herald
if all places had people the quality of those three... i'd go with print in a second
Frank Dell'Appa and Gus Martins are widely considered the best duo of MLS writers for the Boston Globe/Herald
If you speak Spanish, radio is the way to go. You get a lot of info that way, especially from Andres Cantor's Futbol de Primera programme. There's also Bigsoccer's own tied in radio programmes which are more opinion and caller based than news based but still worth listening. Nice to hear someone in English covering soccer on the radio.
I am in love with Michelle Lissel!
Although this is true, I still get most of my soccer news on the net as well.
The internet. If I have nothing better to do I will watch MLS on TV and I recently watched some of the second leg of Arsenal vs. Chelsea on ESPN2. I'll watch the United States in World Cup Qualifying when they play. Years ago I watched CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying games in Spanish (a language I don't know) because the games weren't on in English. I started following international soccer when the United States hosted World Cup 1994 and will always remember the help they got in the first round from an own goal. In 1997 I followed the final round of CONCACAF Qualifying and then followed the United States lose all three games in World Cup 1998. I followed every qualifying game in every confederation for World Cup 2002 and am doing the same for World Cup 2006.
Wensites I use for soccer:

FIFA and FIFA World Cup
This is interesting because I use bigsoccer to link me to on-line sources of print media, and some internet content as well. The journal is great because of the links to soccer articles all across the country.
I can read BS posts all day (and I do) but I don't really know something has happened with DC United until Steven Goff (Wahington Post) says so.
Also, I can visit MLSNET to view goals I missed in other games. I look forward to viewing other highlights on-line someday (you know, non-goals.) I can't get any of this on TV. I'm not watching 1/2-hour news and sports shows so I can see maybe 1 or 2 goals for 15 seconds.
If I had Fox Sports World maybe it would be different, but the internet is all I've got.
