      Americans will be glad to learn that Radio 5 Live broadcasts are available for listening on the BBC web site. IN the past these have always been muted for listeners here.

      On the other hand, it looks like NBC will be requiring us to pay for a lot more of the Liverpool matches via their Peacock Streaming services. I heard the match comm this weekend say the Arsenal and Chelsea matches will both be available on Peacock.

      I expected this as we have been getting a lot of games on "Free" TV for the past few years on NBC Sports Network. Some will still be on there but I expect they will make us pay for more now.

      Rob, if I already have NBC sports, will I have to pay extra for Peacock? I was able to watch the everton game through peacock, I dont remember if i paid prior for it? My provider is comcast here in NJ, USA. I did pay for the old NBC sports gold package though in the past.

      Not sure the relationship between Peacock and Gold subscriptions. It appears that some EPL games are on Peacock for free but others are on the Premium Tier. It's 5 bucks a month so I'll probably break down and get it, but it gets to where all of these, ESPN+ for Cup matches, CBS for Champions League, and now NBC Peacock for league games, plus the cost of regular TV services (I have AT&T U-verse), really starts to add up. I have LFC TV as well but of course the matches aren't live in the U.S.

      I actually like watching the cricket, it has probably the best commentary teams of any of the sports that sky show.

      My only guess is that demand for audio/radio has dropped, lowering the price tag and letting the riffraff in to the equation. I've tried to listen to games on there before and it's like eavesdropping on two or three idiots at the pub who are only loosely paying attention to the match, but you can't see the TV from where you're sitting so you are depending on them to tell you what's happening.

      Pundits: We need some sort of system brought in so that we get these marginal decisions right.

      VAR brought in.

      Pundits: We need some common sense here and these decisions by VAR are too clinical.

      Idiots.

      Don’t know why a sky chose Evra, can’t understand what he says, bullshit or not, Roy Keane is what we need , him & Souness say it how they see it , strong characters who know exactly what to say and at the right time, Carra & Neville are good although Carra seems to be doing some brown nosing recently, the new faces  are yes ppl and pander to whatever the producer says,

      What pisses me off tho is commentators having to apologise if any foul language is heard, ffs it’s football, not f***in jolly hockey sticks, their trying butter it up as some sort of squeaky clean sport, f**k off, it isn’t.

      I wellcome more diversity but I don't know why they have to make a big play of it. Should just be a natural progression.

      or how picking the best person irrespective of skin colour, because if you are picking people based on their skin colour then that is.......... racism!   

      There's never anything positive about discrimination!


      Soccer Saturday was never my cup of tea, but a lot of people enjoyed it and you cannot deny there was great chemistry between the pundits, reminded me a bit of Saint and Greavsie which also was as much about humour as football.

      Point well made. I do agree that every trade should be based on ability but I think with punditry one mans opinion is as valid as the next. There is no acknowledged bench mark as such with punditry and it should by and large reflect the diversity in the game.
