    Should normally include a European highlights section in the OP of this as well, I guess. :holmes:

    Cannot wait for the Milan derby. :coma: :coma: :coma:

    I've never noticed that Premier Sports channel before. If Wikipedia's coverage guide is to be believed it shows the most random selection I've ever seen:

    Gaelic games
    League of Ireland football
    Australian National Rugby League
    Conference games
    World Series of Boxing
    Copa Libertadores
    Brazilian league
    Argentinian league
    Student Rugby League Super 8's

    All for the princely sum of £7.99 a month :lolwut: Makes ESPN look a bargain ffs :facepalm2:

    Anyone without Sky can watch the glamour Championship match between Leeds and Forest on BBC1 from half 12 :sexface:

    Well the individual match thread went down surprisingly well. Let's contrast to how badly this goes. Six live 3pm games, let's go :woo:

    Birmingham v Bolton
    Everton v Aston Villa
    Newcastle v Wolves
    Stoke v Chelsea
    West Brom v Liverpool
    Wigan v Tottenham

    Everton's bench today :lolwut: I might tune in for the Sprus game in the second half. :bandit:

    The 7 on Everton's bench could probably beat Villa's first eleven ffs :facepalm2:

    Intruiged by the Walters wonder strike though :holmes:

    How are Villa playing? Tbf Villa look really good on paper, need to get their act together because they really are too good to go down.

    Everything is nicely poised :holmes:, thinking of having a gander at the West Brom - L'pool game. Spurs look short of ideas, apparently 5 of the next 7 games for Wigan are away from home. As good as down, imo.

    Brunt in the last minute of normal time. Gwarn Woy. :coma:

    Switched over to the Chelsea - Stoke game in the end, seemed quite entertaining, Stoke nearly won it. I guess that's that for Chelsea's title hopes. :teeth:

    Hodgson must be the happiest man on the planet right now.

    At half time in the United game the title race was in Chelsea's hands ffs

    Now they can't even finish second :facepalm2:

    At half time in the United game several Chelsea fans were WUMing me. :smug:

    The match discussion seems to be working well for the tv games but seems a bit hard to control for non-tv games :holmes:

    I imagine next season it will be generate more interest as it will all be settled and part of the normal routine for anyone new.

    Oh hai Mess.

    Are there any Milan supporters in this forum? I know Charzinho and Sandeep support Inter, I think there was some guy called Boriello who might have supported them? Can't think of anyone else.

    :hmmm: I've never really seen much of the Italian masses on TSR :holmes:

    I will actually be able to get reinvolved in all the football discussion next year as I will have permanent access to every football channel in HD, **** the streams :coma:


    Pato scores.

    What a start. :adore:

    Hoping for a draw.
