Soccer Tuesday: Your Running Commentary

The Carling Cup quarterfinals aren't typically must-see TV, but when the draw for this year's edition was conducted, it resulted in some mouth-watering matchups between England's top teams.

Chelsea and Liverpool will do battle for one spot in the semifinals, while Arsenal and Manchester City clash for another. Even though plenty of reserves are expected to see time in both contests, they both still promise to provide a nice slice of mid-week entertainment. 

A couple of other league matchups around Europe are appealing as well, as Barcelona will look to come back from its first defeat of its league campaign at home against Rayo Vallecano, and Napoli and Juventus square off in a meeting of two of Italy's top sides.

Here's the TV schedule for Tuesday's matches: 

2:45 p.m. – – Chelsea vs. Liverpool

2:45 p.m. – Fox Soccer Channel – Napoli vs. Juventus

3 p.m. – Fox Soccer Plus/ – Arsenal vs. Manchester City

3 p.m. – – Barcelona vs. Rayo Vallecano

    So I pay good money for Fox Soccer and I still can’t watch Arsenal vs Man City OR Chelsea vs Liverpool? I’m sick of them putting the more desirable games on Plus or .tv.

  2. Scott says:

    Hoe did Park not score? He was 4 yards out!

  3. Khan says:

    Fox Soccer is turning into a trash company. Adding two additional pay services on top of their channel and then transitioning the watched games to those services is crap.

  4. montana matt says:

    12 million for oxlade-chamberlain looks like a bargain.

  5. Khan says:

    If Xavi intended to do that then it’s the most incredible pass I’ve ever seen in my life.

  6. liz says:

    Na$ri is just not having a good game. Clearly wanted to be subbed. I think the crowd is getting in his head

  7. Khan says:

    Uhh Barcelona just flipped the beast mode switch for the end of the half. I couldn’t score these goals on a video game if I tried.

  8. michael says:

    Xavi is incredible but I doubt even he is capable of intentionally doing that. That being said, if it was what he intended to do then all I have to say is wtf lol

  9. Khan says:

    Yeah, wtf is right, it blew my mind lol

  10. Rory says:

    Don’t call me a hoe!

  11. Rory says:

    No kidding. Bad enough I have to buy some stupid package full of channels I don’t want/won’t ever watch to get Fox Soccer, but I then am expected to pay twice as much for the plus so I can watch a handful of good games plus rugby?

  12. Rory says:

    Then they don’t even have the two shows I used to watch a few years ago anymore: Dream Team reruns and Fox Football Fone-in (pre-Wynalda).

  13. Rory says:

    They have sliders for that.

  14. Khan says:

    A friend of mine used a fake question to get on the show once and asked Wylanda about Harkes and his wife haha

  15. Khan says:

    It’s like a sound studio mixer board with sliders for defense, attacking, beast mode, etc.

    Guardiola keeps it on the sideline to build the drama.

  16. Khan says:

    Drunk irishman talking trash on ESPN’s Barcelona feed. A 2 game suspension for time wasting? Come on.

  17. Khan says:

    That’s a simply astounding record, 11 consecutive home clean sheets.

  18. Alex says:

    You used to watch Dream Team?…

  19. OmarVizquel says:

    So are they even going to do the Carling Cup draw, or will they just schedule Man U with Cardiff City now to save everyone some time? #bitter.

  20. Wm. says:

    @Khan : Your friend is not so nice.

  21. bryan says:

    it’s a Fox affiliate…can’t be that surprised!
