    So we went from Fox, where they would show early and late games, but also show marquis matchups playing at the same time on sister stations FS1, FS2, and regionals like FSOH, to one game at a time on TNT and the rest on B/R Live. Color me unimpressed.

    And B/R Live is only available on my phone right now, no viewing through XBox or PS4, so yay.

    I’m not sure Ronaldo should have been sent off for that, but the irony of him getting so upset at someone else taking a dive on him is too rich not to get some enjoyment out of.

    Univision and Galavision are also running games if you get those, though in general we are going to see fewer EPL teams in CL games than we did previously.

    An $84M goalie ought to be able to stop the Hazard goal today.

    That Sturridge goal was unreal.

    Newcastle up 2-0 at ManU in the 1st half. Will Mou even come out for the last 45?

    Update: ManU came back to win 3-2. Can that save Mou's job?

    M2, what’s going on in Madrid?

    Isco had an appendicitis and then they stopped scoring goals. No one's creating in the final third. They probably need to play a little more direct until he gets back.

    Courtois also doesn't trigger possession out of the back like Navas (and his brain fart yesterday didn't help).

    I know it’s not Europe, but the US needs to find a goalie. Steffen was awful tonight. Outside of the first goal, I think all 3 of the remaining goals would have been stopped by a strong keeper.

    Watching Netherlands-Germany and Frenkie de Jong is the real deal. His touch, calmness on the ball and passing eye/range are world class. Whichever team wins the transfer race for him is going to get a human engine room.

    Unfortunately, it was confirmed that Leicester City's owner was on board the helicopter that crashed right outside King Power after yesterday's match.

    On the pitch, one presumes the sack awaits Real Madrid's manager after a poor start to the season and today's 5-1 El Clasico defeat. Antonio Conte next in line?

    Seems like it's Conte. I want Madrid to make a crazier pick.

    If you counted Zidane as a crazy pick -- big name, but had never managed at the senior level -- then yeah, I can see where you'd want to try that well again.

    Rumors today are it might be Santi Solari.

    Tottenham and Man City played at Wembley today with NFL lines still visible. Looked like garbage. I miss White Hart Lane.
