Steve Sidelnyk's Football Blog 31st August 2013
Just finished watching a stunning match on BEIN Sport between Juventus and Lazio and highlighting the obvious class that exists in other leagues than the Premiership!
NBC's coverage of the Crystal Palace vs Sunderland match was interrupted by a nationwide address from Barack Obama and during it Sunderland equalized! ..............well thats a first!!!!!!!!!
Still early in the season for any bets to be placed on any team's prospects and all apart from Chelsea and Man Utd have had the odd hiccup, but after this weekend we'll have a pretty good idea of who is going where as the transfer window closes and the person you hated in your rival team suddenly becomes the savior from above.
Back to who is showing what where :
Thank You FOX SOCCER for putting Friday's Super-Cup match between Bayern of Munich and Chelski on some crazy Fox channel that no normal sports package had................sour grapes???????
NBC continues with some nice coverage and Robbie Earle lends his dulcet tones to the pundits...........Warren who????????
Big games tomorrow between Liverpool and Man Utd and the North London derby: Arsenal vs Tottenham! BOTH matches live on NBC Sports Network.
For all you Brits that love the game and want to impress a few people, I'm gonna compile a few sayings that will start to impress your friends who thought you knew nothing about football but really your steeped in knowledge and punditry : )
For starters just make up any Russian-esque name and act surprised by saying : " Well I didn't see the transfer of blank blank blank blank blank-ski from Locomotiv Moscow happening at all! " ............................... Bound to raise the odd eye-brow : O )
Anyway until then you have to study some famous football quotes from the ages and revel in your new found wisdom!
Enjoy : ) Steve "Bites Your Legs" Sidelnyk
