This past weekend kick off the start of the Premier League on NBCSN and it has been a success at least from a ratings point of view. According to Richard Deitsch, the media reporter for Sports Illustrated, NBCSN saw a 67 percent increase in ratings over last years opening weekend, which was broadcast on ESPN and Fox Soccer Channel.

For years American fans of the Premier League have had to deal with low budget Fox Soccer Channel, now that has all changed. Premier League is making inroads into American culture and that is expected to continue as NBC Sports Network takes over coverage of the League in America.

For the last decade and a half Fox Soccer has been the voice of the Barclays Premier League in this country and that ended on Sunday. It's going to be sad not to have the EPL on FSC. While FSC has made it's mistakes over the years if it was not for them the EPL would not have the footprint that it has in this country.

Comcast Fail

I know soccer in the United States is not at the level of other sports but the least Comcast could do is get the names of the teams playing right. On Sunday, Comcast put on their guide Manchester United vs. Tottenham. Small problem it was not United playing but rather their arch rivals Manchester City.

Frankly none of Saturday's games are all that compelling, but if you must:

FA Cup Semifinal, Liverpool vs Everton (7:30amET; FSC & Fox Deportes): A Merseyside derby at Wembley. Liverpool have been in rotten form, while Everton have been coming on strong.

Bundesliga, Schalke 04 vs Borussia Dortmund (9:30amET; GolTV): The Ruhr derby or, in the German, the Revierderby is the biggest rivalry in Germany.

Lots of matches on being broadcast in the United States this weekend, though I have to admit that there aren't a lot of great matches.

The defining Sunday of the Season

Only Time Will Tell at related • 1 view
Fox Soccer has been promoting this Sunday Premier League games as "Epic Sunday,'' for once this is not over hype. The doubleheader of Manchester City vs. Spurs and Manchester United vs. Arsenal will go a long way toward telling us who will be lifting the trophy in May.

A City win in the early game and a Arsenal win in the late game could all but end the title race.

Fox might have something

More then a week ago, Fox tried something new and they were rewarded for it. After showing the Manchester United vs. Chelsea game live on FSC, the network decided to show the game on their regular Fox stations after the local NFL was over.

In Philly it was during the 1 p.m., while in other cities it was the 4 p.

First it looked like the Spanish clubs weren't going to play, but now they are. And then it looked like the Italian clubs were going to play, but not maybe they'll go on strike. It's really difficult to tell what's going on from one day to another, but we're going ahead as if everybody is playing this weekend because that's the way I like it.

Gus Johnson

Maybe Gus Johnson is not that bad; I'm just a Euro Snob

Only Time Will Tell at related • 0 views

Its been three months Fox unveiled Gus Johnson as its voice of soccer and it has come with mixed reviews. Some say he is ok, while other say he is terrible. I think that I sit somewhere in the middle between disaster and good start.

Here is my question, is the issue with Gus Johnson tied to the fact that most American soccer fans are Euro Snobs and I include my self in that.

On Wednesday February 13, 2013, Gus Johnson made his Fox Soccer Channel debut by doing the play-by-play in the network's broadcast of the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Manchester United. The match ended in a 1-1 draw and on the whole, I think Gus Johnson did a good job on the broadcast.

First it was ESPN.com screwing up now it's Fox Soccer. During the Spurs Newcastle game, FSC said that Emmanuel Adebayor was coming on to replace Gylfi Sigurosson. Small problem Adebayor is still a Manchester City player even though he spent last season on loan at Spurs. I know it's the first week of the season but this can't happen.

When it was announced that the 4th Round 2012 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup match between the Seattle Sounders and Cal FC would be carried by FOX Soccer the assumption was that Eric Wynalda's presence was a large reason for it. This can be confirmed as true, but there's a bit more to the story. Via an email exchange with FOX Soccer's Vice President of Programming and Acquisitions Joshua Glassel Sounder at Heart asked about the interest of FSC in the Open Cup and specifically the early round game.

NBC Replaces Fox Soccer As MLS's Main TV Partner

It's obviously too early to say just how huge this is for MLS, but it's clearly a step in the right direction. Fox Soccer never treated MLS like a property they really wanted, and NBC seems ready to really put some energy into making this work. It also can't be bad that NBC Sports Network -- which is currently called Versus -- is more widely available than FSC, and usually does not require a special subscription.
