 Which matches are you most looking forward to watching?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. Not really, it always nice to say that the MNT has Americans playing for It makes them angry like a mofo.:)… we are ok without him, he was a decent prospect, but I rather have the little dude who play for a little team by the name Estudiantes.

  2. Yeah. And it’s possible he could get called up to Copa America, and I think if he played in a game he would get cap tied.

  3. Thanks, Ives, for adding the GolTV games. The EPL is my favorite European league, but I’ve been following Bundesliga and La Liga a lot more this season.

  4. Thanks for the update Ives with goltv games. Sorry to be all whiney and dramatic just wanted to make sure you guys were not starting a war with another soccer network. Great job and I love and recommend this site to all fans I meet. Keep up the great work.

    (SBI-Appreciate it Mike. My association with Fox Soccer will never interfere with what we do here on SBI and what we write about. It’s all about getting readers info, something we’ll always try to do.)

  5. I’ve got Man U-Arsenal, Roma-Lazio, and the A-League final (Brisbane-Central Coast) scheduled to record on my DVR. Mainz-Bayer Leverkusen and Sevilla-Barcelona on GolTV should be good, but I don’t have enough time to watch them all.

    Ives, how come you don’t include GolTV games?

    (SBI-I always include GolTV games, but didn’t this morning because I didn’t have the schedule yet. I’ve included their games since.)

  6. Looks like this fox soccer affiliate didn’t mention one game for goltv. Goltv I am sure has several goog games to watch from bundesliga to la PGA and the Brazilian league. Try not to be as biased as foxnews okay fox soccer. Danke schon.

    (SBI-If you read us with any regularity you’d know we always list GolTV games. For some reason their games weren’t available when we compiled our list. We’ll add the games as soon as we can get a hold of the GolTV schedule. Settle down with the “bias” talk.)

  7. you know its not a good weekend for TV soccer when the #3 game involves birmingham. top 2 look good. after that, meh..

    (SBI-It’s Stuart Holden playing in a big FA Cup Match. Not sure how any American soccer fan wouldn’t be interested in seeing that.)

  8. 12:30 AM Sunday-Australian League Grand Final: Brisbane vs. Central Coast.

    Don’t know about you guys but I’m always intrigued by a league championship game. I’d certainly put it above most, if not all, of the “Top 10” games in my book.

  9. its all in flash, so you cant really get a virus. the only thing you may have to download is the veetle plug-in, and i can assure you that its clean and you wont get any viruses.

    another option, is to run a proxy server from the US, then use, but thats much more difficult than just using atdhe

  10. Crazy question, but I figure this is the best place to ask.

    I was crushed when I found that my subscription won’t work in Thailand, where I will be for the coming year. Geo-blocked? I’ve always hesitated to go with the links that people throw out there… I live on the cheap and need my computer for work or I’m screwed. So, will I fill my computer with viruses by going to them?

    Can’t stand thinking of a year without watchin’ the Deuce go to work. Please help!
