This Weekend's Soccer on TV

In a match-up of an overachieving team against an underachieving squad, Stuart Holden and Bolton take on struggling Liverpool in one of the more intriguing matches of the weekend.

Liverpool is in desperation mode as Roy Hodgson faces immense pressure to turn around an ugly season, while Owen Coyle and the Trotters are enjoying a dream season to date.

The Spanish First Division is back in action this weekend, with Barcelona beginning 2011 after finishing 2010 in strong fashion.

    are there literally zero games on Gol tv this weekend? my wife gave me a subscription to Gol for Christmas that I have not started yet…..if something like Fox Soccer Plus makes more sense I’ll do that instead, but what I really want Is La Liga and Bundesliga coverage.


  • ndsoccerfan

    Who is in charge of selecting games for FSC? Ives, if you have any clout there, please say something. Why for the American market would they choose to show Man City and Blackpool over Liverpool/Bolton or Fulham/Tottenham?


  • SdbransonUSA

    Bundlesliga is on its winter break until January 14, but La Liga is back in action on Sunday and Monday. I’m surprised htat they wouldnt have anything on Goltv this weekend.


  • garbaggio

    Not sure why GolFV isn’t showing the Sunday games from La Liga (which seems to be running a Sunday/Monday schedule this weekend) but they have Atl Madrid – Racing Santander live at 2 pm Monday followed by Getafe – Real Madrid at 4 pm.

    At this holiday time of year EPL on FSC is much more abundant. Once Germany gets over it’s winter break and La Liga is going fullbore in the New Year they will have plenty of games.

    God bless ESPN3. It’s amazing for soccer fans. I showed a couple friends who live in England and Germany how many games I have access to for free* and I think they’re thinking about emigrating now.

    * I know my ISP pays for the access, but getting that many games in the UK would cost more than my internet connection alone.

    Absolutely. I love ESPN3 and the best part about it is you can go back forever and watch matches. Thanks Verizon for paying for it for me!


  • fischy

    Let’s see — FSC is a package option or free on many system. FSC+ brings in $15 a month to FOX for every subscriber. Which channel do you really think will get the better games, and why?


  • fischy

    Owen Coyle says that Holden is unlikely to play. Apparently, he suffered a leg injury against Chelsea — must be why they took him off.


  • MadKingGeorge

    Why is the Rangers-Celtic game even listed if it is not on TV? Is it just me? I am missing something there?


  • Dan

    ya but you can watch them on your computer, Rangers-Celtic looks to be blacked out of coverage.


  • GW

    What happens if FSC goes for Fulham in a big way and then Dempsey gets sold in the January window?

    Do they get a refund? Would you watch Fulham to see EJ play for 10 minutes?
