Italy-Ireland
England-Ukraine

Big matches, both Setanta Premium ($$PPV$$). I'll be listening to the Ireland match on RTE1 online.

And watching the US match... of course!

I'm setting my alarm to get up for the Socceroos thrashing of those Uzbeks -- the "'very nosey people with bone in their brain'"

Then, I'm hanging around to watch make glorious victory for Kazakhstan over oppressed people of Belarus.

Long live Fox Soccer Channel!!

If you have access to Setanta -- I recommend the Israel-Greece match. I dropped $5.99 to watch Saturday's match online on something called Omnisport. Good teams that played with great pace and pieced together solid attacking chances. Really contrasted with the USA's play against El Salvador. I'm going to poke around an see if I can figure out a way to watch it online for free...

the korea battle could be a preview for the coming war.

that's a full day's schedule! Much fuller than Saturday seemed to be. Too bad I will be working.

Goff,

With your journey to Music City, all these WC qualifiers and the start of another MLS Season, isn't it time for you to host another Q & A????

Posted by: BaltoFan | March 31, 2009 1:09 PM | Report abuse

what about Argentina - Bolivia game?

Posted by: gmail | March 31, 2009 1:10 PM | Report abuse

Steve doesn't list the PPV options. Most South American qualifiers are only available via pay TV or closed circuit. Argentina-Bolivia available through Setanta Premium, but I'm not sure what bars are offering it. Kind of a mess - and a shame.

Hmm... Looks like North Korea vs. South Korea early and USA-T&T late.

Posted by: mason08 | March 31, 2009 1:19 PM | Report abuse

With only one point out of their first two matches, I'm thinking Honduras is in a must-win situation against Mexico. A loss would surely put them out of reach for one of the top three automatic positions.

Turkey-Spain 2 p.m. Setanta. Screw this. Why went to Setanta? which again brings back to the accessable problem discussion. Evan I can't this nevermind that I am already paying for the preminum high skyrocked price package. These monopolis filled with greeds make our lives miserable.

Hmmm. US vs T&T for me. Anyone thinking about going to Garrett's and getting Benny, Burch, or Peters to serve you up some $2 G&T's?

no tv coverage for Costa Rica vs ELS?

To paraphrase the great Jeff Spicoli... no Mexico, no US, no dice.

This is U.S. History, I see the globe right there.

I was going to use that line, but I thought it so obscure no one would get it.

Curtis, I don't hear you unless you knock.

why did I drop ESPNDeportes a few months again to save some money during the down economy? The Chile / Uruguay might just determine the fourth automatic bid from Conmebol.

I'll keep mentioning it through World Cup qualifying but it's a travesty that South America has the same number of bids as Asia (4 plus 1 playoff, not too mention that Asia's playoff - Oceania is much easier than SA's playoff - Concacaf). South America definitely deserves 5 plus 1 playoff. Here's the top 6 right now:

Paraguay
Argentina
Chile
Brazil
Uruguay
Colombia

It is hard not to be intrigued by the Russia-Liechtenstein match up. The disparity in size is amazing.

Russia is 106,335 times larger than Liechtenstein

Russia has 4057 times more people than Liechtenstein

As far as match watching I will bookend the work day with:

South Korea-North Korea 7 a.m. FSC
Crap 9AM - 6PM
USA-T&T 7:30 p.m. ESPN2

If I am not satisfied a little mismatch night cap:

Russia-Liechtenstein 9:30 p.m. GolTV

Mexico qualifiers are must see TV for me these days. They are always minutes away from total implosion. I expect drama in Honduras tomorrow night.

Anyone interested in Lichenstien's soccer credentials should definitely check out the book "Stamping Grounds," written by a British writer who accompanies the team during the 2002 WC qualifiers. At that time, the national team had 6 full-time pros (all in the Swiss league) and everyone else had day jobs. As I recall, their #10 was struggling to pick between soccer and his banking career, and their sweeper had to miss a qualifier so he could oversee his grape harvest!

Oops, forgot the link for the book:

I will be watching none of these other than the USA game, cause I'll spend my day around Nashville and my night in the first row. :)
