Hopefully Henry and Werner won't be sitting by the fireplace holding a Liverpool mug! I think this is a good move. It helps fans to get more insight and hopefully opens up the market in places where we need to exploit it a bit further.

 

The staple studio presenters on Fox Soccer are Warren Barton, Eric Wynalda and just lately, Brian MacBride. They aren't too bad.

 

I've met Warren Barton several times when he played for Newcastle. He is a massive cunt with an ego far in excess of his extremely limited footballing "talent".

Not arsed, that looks quality

 

I thought that looked fucking brilliant, actually. It might turn out to be a total embarrassment, but I can't wait for that.

I just watched that trailer. It looks good. I'm more interested to see how the players train at Melwood than anything else.

So we're Footballs answer to TOWIE now are we?

 

Brendan Rodgers actually finished that clip by saying 'it's all part of the dance'?

 

I can see more and more why the owners wanted Kenny out, It's difficult to imagine him signing up to anything like that. I'm not against interviews with managers and players, but I'd prefer it if they did the talking on the pitch.

 

 

Except this started when Kenny was manager.

don't go to Fox's website if you can help it

 

 

 

looks fascinating to be honest, can't wait for it. Imagine the historical signigicance of it if BR turns out to be a success. I understand the fears by more traditional support, but you have to keep moving or you get left behind. The first ever match of the day was at Anfield was it not? Maybe some fans there complained about the way football was going to end up too much about tv and the real fans would lose out. And they would have been right but, what was my point again? Yeah nothing to worry about becoming a soap opera club or whatever , United did one of these ages ago, I remember watching in the mid 90's, a well talked about clip included Ince's little lad playing footy with Schmeical's lad in goal at someones house (Tom and Casper I suppose..)

Also there was one were SirWhiskeyfuck called Ince a 'big time Charlie.'

None resulted in loss of face for the club. Then again there was that Peter Reid one were he seemed totally mental and the Graham Taylor one....

The club has been a soap opera now for that many years it's no surprise to see it's now broadcasting as one.

 

This is a cynical marketing ploy for as Ian Ayre would call it the "non-football side of the business" to make more money in the States. I understand that this is now the way of the world but I resent that the Club is using the working class support as a big selling point while pricing that element of support out of the game.

 

The club and the game are now run by corporate sharks and sadly that's never going to change. When this programme was commissioned they would have already decided that Kenny would be leaving and were probably delighted that the drama would be captured on film. I don't need to add more than that.

You are too nice! It's clear he thinks he's "hot shit"! The others just think he's shit!

Cannot wait for that.

 

If you don't agree then don't watch it, but don't go saying 'oh we sold out', because that's just bullshit, we sold out yearrrrrs ago along with everyone else in the PL.

The problem with liverpool is that we were to late to sell out, and therefor are lacking in every department with our rivals when it comes to money.

I just wish that HBO would have done this instead. If this were done by the same group that does Real Sports with Bryant Gumble, it would have been guarenteed to be amazing, not sure how it's going to turn out with Fox.

 

What it will likely do is bring us the American fans who would have supported the clubs who are presently more sucessful than us. It will give people here an opportunity to feel like they're connected to the club in a significant way. Hopefully the club take advantage of the excellent opportunity this provides us to educate the casual fan about the truth of some things. Primarily Hillsborough. If the club don't make sure there is an episode solely dedicated to explaining the truth of Hillsborough instead of the lies spread by people like Murdoch and Steven Coen, then I'll be hugely disappointed.

    • The long and winding saga regarding a proposed Timo Werner transfer has reportedly taken another twist with rival suitors being told a deal Liverpool is as good as done.

      Metro( via the Transfer Window Podcast) report that Manchester United and Chelsea have been informed by the representatives of the red-hot striker that a move to Liverpool has basically been agreed.

      There was a view that United and Chelsea were growing quietly confident of pulling off a surprising recruiting coup with Liverpool holding fire on any firm commitment in the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic and the financial strain it would bring.

      But it is thought that the German has agreed personal terms worth £140,000-week, five-year deal but the clubs have not agreed a fee as yet.  

      The much discussed clause in the contract of Werner expires on the 15th of June but because of the pandemic, Liverpool are trying to find a way to reduce the fee.

      One thing that is certain is there is a mutual interest between the two parties.

      The RB Leipzig striker who has scored four goals in as many games since the resumption in the Bundesliga, certainly has his heart set on the move having had three meetings with Jürgen Klopp on Zoom during the hiatus and his skillset would be an added bonus to a squad already brimming with class.

    • There may not be fans allowed into stadiums but broadcasters are looking to bring the full experience to the lounge rooms of football lovers across the nation.

      The Mirror reports that Sky Sports are one channel that are considering using crowd noise for games played behind closed doors.

      But if you do not like that artificial experience, the same game can be viewed in its natural format on one of their complementary channels like Main Event.

      The discussion of feeding in crowd noise to break up the monotony of hearing managers barking instructions from the touchline and general echoey sounds reverberating through the empty stadiums had come to the fore when German broadcasters decided to include it in their match feeds.

      In the main the reception to the idea has been favourable with the NRL in Australia also following suite.

      The premier Rugby League competition was the first sporting competition to resume in the country after the Covid-19 shutdown and Simon Fordham the head of broadcasting for the host channel explained how the process works.

      “They’ve written a program where all the sounds go into a synthesiser and they have created a non-repetitive loop or a buzz track at a base level, which is what you hear during general play.

      “As required there is an operator there who uses a foot pedal or a fader from an audio desk, that you would use to increase not only the volume of the crowd noise in the mix but also expand its intensity.

      "As it goes up, more layers and files get added.   "It’s not just the same noise getting louder. It actually - the software that has been written - enables it to increase in intensity or density.

      “Booing? Giving it to the referee? Yep, it's all possible. 

      “The audio operator has the ability to add jeers, boos or whistles if he believes the "home crowd" would have thought a forward pass had been thrown or the away side was offside.”  

      Fordham also explained that the volume of the cheers for the designated home team were piped in at a extra level to add that extra reality for the viewers at home.

      Back in England and League bosses have set up a special working group to look at several proposals including half-time interviews, dressing room access and post-match interviews which will be discussed at Thursday’s Premier League meeting between the 20 clubs.

      Clubs understand the need for TV Companies to produce content, but several managers have voiced concerns about dressing room access and also half-time interviews especially as they see the dressing room as sacred turf and the battle maybe be extremely difficult for the broadcasters to win.

      Match commentators have been given the green light to be at the stadium along with touch-line interviewers but studio pundits will be based at a location off-site.
