    Rubin holding strong at home. Perhaps an opportunity for Dynamo Kiev to gain some ground.

  2. I have Arsenal-Olympiacos on Fox Sports South.

  3. Jose S. says:

    Just to clear something up, You don’t need the sports package to watch the rest of the games on Direct TV.

    You need the sports package to watch the games on FSC and Espanol

    WOW!! Arsenal so unlucky!

  5. A.S. says:

    My understanding, for those of us in the NYC area, is that Arsenal-Oly is on MSG+.

  6. Dman says:

    any beasley sighting?

  7. Blokhin says:

    beasley not on the bench- why won’t Rangers try to move him elsewhere? is his salary so outrageous that others won’t pick up even a little bit of it? why waste an asset (I know, debatable at this point) on your balance sheet?

    Liverpool down 2-0 to Fiorentina, Jovetic brace

  9. Paul D says:

    Right when I was sure that Arsenal were incapable of scoring, van Persie proves me wrong.

  10. Ian says:

    2-0 to the Arsenal. 2-0 to Fiorentina. 4-1 to the US U-20s. So that puts me ahead 8-1 for the day. Not bad.

    Paul how are they lucky? They dominate possession and shot opportunities….And their keeper was amazing..As a Arsenal fan I wasn’t worried at all when they were knocking on the door for the last 30 minutes… 2nd goal was ridiculously offsides though but we’ll take it!!!

  12. simms21 says:

    Oops sorry Paul I guess I can’t read…. Hooray for education!!

  13. Brian says:
