Games of the Day


Recommended Posts

Don't know if this has been done before, but I wanted to start a thread on "Games of the Day".

The idea is for forumers to discuss any good football action that is taking place from around the world that they may be watching or that they would reccommend watching. This then can give forumers some ideas as to what good matches are on on a particular day and what could be good games to watch.

This is particularly the case in the summer, with little football on TV, and so people may want to know good pre season or competitive games they can watch online via streaming sites. From this, people can then discuss the action they are watching, such as a good goal by so and so, such and such played well and is under rated on SM, or even have banter when say Arsenal beat Tottenham (lets hope they do in 13/14)!

Re: Games of the Day

Good games I'd reccommend- 7th July 2013:

U20 World Cup Quarter Final- Iraq V South Korea- 4pm kick off

U20 World Cup Quarter Final- Ghana V Chile- 7pm kick off

Brazil- Serie A- Sao Paulo V Santos- 8pm kick off

All kick off times BST.

The U20 World Cup games can be watched live on FIFA's website and can be paused, meaning you could watch the first half of Ghana V Chile, pause it, watch Sao Paulo V Santos, and watch the second half of Ghana V Chile after the Sao Paulo V Santos game has finished.

Some more good matches at 10.30pm BST from the Brazilian Serie A.

3rd V 4th with Botafogo taking on last years champions, Fluminese (Fred in action in that match).

Elsewhere, Athletido Mineiro (Bernard's team, linked to top clubs like Dortmund) V Criciuma (a newly promoted team).

Re: Games of the Day

Good games I'd reccommend- Monday 8th July 2013:

Actually not many matches on today, being a Monday, but these look the pick of the bunch:

Sweden- Allsvenskan- Helsingborg V IFK Goteborg- 6.05pm kick off BST. 3rd V 2nd and the winner goes top of the league.

Friendly- Madgeburg V Borussia Dortmund- 5pm kick off BST. Chance to see one of the best sides in the world in action for the first time in 13/14. Might be able to see their new signings, but it depends on the side Klopp picks.

Friendly- Standard Liege V Anderlecht- 6pm kick off BST. Belgian rivals means that the match should be very competitive despite the friendly tag.
