    True enough. Some very exciting games coming up.

    That display yesterday was amazing. All four goals were just incredible, none more than the first finished off by Wilshere. Those are the kind of goals that will make any one a soccer fan.

    Stunning display from the Gunners, particularly on that goal. Ozil was the missing piece that is allowing the brilliance on display. I have to give Old Man Wenger credit, he knew what he was doing yet again.

    The extended highlights here are just awesome. Every goal was just so beautifully orchestrated. The first one is going to get all the love, and rightfully so. But watch Ozil's run on his header goal, then Ramsey's individual brilliance, and then the last team goal also.

    Also, it's incredibly maddening that Fox Soccer is putting Ajax vs Celtic on Fox Sports Ohio, thus delegating Arsenal-Dortmund to Fox Soccer Plus, which NOBODY gets

    I'm actually taping the Arsenal-Dortmund game at 5 on Fox Deportes. I'm guessing they must get good ratings for Celtic games, but if Celtic fans are that rabid then why not drive them to your subscription channel and put the more entertaining teams on basic cable.

    Alex Ferguson thinks that David Beckham thought he was "bigger than the manager" and wanted fame more than being a great player.

    Gunners should have won that one. Better side, but got caught twice and couldn't finish and got unlucky with Santi hitting the bar. Not a bad showing, hopefully can get them in Germany.

    This seems like the least surprising story ever written. It would be like the Joe Torre revealing that Derek Jeter had many famous girlfriends.

    I was actually thrilled. I love watching Celtic and can only do so in the comfort of my home during the CL. Arsenal, on the other hand, I get to see every week.

    Or, they need to occasionally ruffle the feathers of teams with solid US followings (like Arsenal) in order to get some of those people to add whatever sports package is necessary to get Fox Soccer Plus.

    Fair point, though Fox doesn't have enough league rights to justify spending money on a pay soccer channel.

    Especially since they no longer have the EPL. I've hardly watched FSC this season.

    Probably because FSC disappeared in September right around the time Fox Sports 1 was launched.

    Of course they just made a move on the Bundesliga, so I could see them trying to get back into the big-time soccer game. They have Scottish Premier League, so if they pick up another league or two, they could have something going. However, they might need to consider offering their soccer games on regular Fox channels and ditching the premium Fox Soccer Plus. Tough to compete with NBC offering all the EPL games on regular cable channels when you're asking people to pay for an extra subscription.
