  1. Would not only effect not only the EFL's television deal, but every television deal in the UK.
  2. What an ending to the game though!
  3. The NFL probably has more fans in the UK than the other American major sports leagues because of the regularity of it. If you pick a team they have one game a week and, for the most part of it, they are on at a time on a Sunday evening that is easy enough to watch. Basketball is by far the highest participated sport of the four, but we really are far behind the rest of Europe. They keep having potential 'relaunches' of the BBL, and talk of investors looking to expand the league and the level of talent. But really, there just is a large gap between the fan level here and in other parts of Europe. (Side note on Basketball. But I'm just constantly surprised that no one has seem to try and get some bigger tournaments happening in the UK. Getting something like EuroBasket or the FIBA World Cup in the UK would be such a huge boost to probably the biggest sleeping giant of a sport we could have.) Ice hockey has probably the biggest fan base for British teams of the four sports. And seems to be rising all the time. I know my local team, from regularly going to games for the last six years, has seen steady increases in crowds and have been regularly selling out (even in a relatively small arena). But we have about 10 semi professional teams in Scotland, compared to one (potentially another starting soon) basketball team.
  4. 3 Champions League knockout games. 3 defeats for the English Farmers League.
  5. If they aren't from the US, what adverts are they tuning in for then? These people sounds like fucking idiots They aren't paying millions for adverts on ITV... You're just getting the average adverts.
  6. 82 of the top 100 highest viewed television 'hours' in the US were NFL games. Another 6 were college football games. I'm not sure people are just watching for the adverts and half time shows of regular season games. Unless people are really into watching the Ohio State marching band...
  7. BT Sport and Eurosport to be rebranded as TNT Sports
  8. Season is under a week away and the playoff format has yet to be decided. Not a great start to the season, and not a great look for the league.
  9. Replacement incoming though.
  10. We always do these days
  11. Think they are to be decided from the Concacaf Nations League competition.
  12. Almost the entire team has been brought in this season. So it would be his recruitment as well that's let him down. A bit of a wider look for a manager is required. With Barry Robson probably going to be interim manager, he can't do a much worse job than has been since the season restarted.
  13. Gone today, but we'll overdue. Each of the last three games has been a sack worthy offence. My views on him never really improved. They never looked good because of an overall plan, but due to just individual talent. And defensively look worse, and more unorganised than ever. Cormack is now onto his third managerial appointment in under two years. And one he needs to get right. There is a huge need to look outwith the UK and find a different approach.
  14. To be hosted in America, with 6 Concacaf nations to take part in the tournament.
  15. His book with Gabriele Marcotti is one of my favourite reads. A must have for the Football Italia generation of the 90s. Him in the Autoglass sponsored Chelsea top is still my first impression of Chelsea and how I most associate them.
  16. Sacked their manager after 3 games. Liz Truss lasted longer. And their own players are questioning the clubs transfers on Twitter.
  17. Half the England team waving imaginary cards? But I was told that was only big bad Johnny Foreigner that did it?!
  18. Probably not a good sign that this case is going well for the club...
  19. Watching this match, I sympathise with people that don't like this sport. Soft as fuck.
  20. Why are Wales just playing long, high ball after long, high ball? This USA team isn't exactly weak in physicality or height.
  21. A reminder that Qatar lost in a friendly to Linfield (Northern Ireland's champions) a few months ago. They've been as hopeless as expected.
