Clint Dempsey and Brad Friedel were instrumental in Fulham and Aston Villa’s 2-2 draw earlier today. Dempsey made a positive contribution. Friedel – not so much. For a full analysis of the match, check out my write-up over at the USA 10 Kit.

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely any gringos were able to watch this match live. The game wasn’t broadcast on Fox Soccer Channel until 4:00 CST (kickoff was at 9:00 CST), and Foxsoccer.tv had some major problems with their live stream. In the past, FFG has been effusive with our praise for Fox Soccer Channel’s streaming service, and we’ve been equally vitriolic with our dissatisfaction with ESPN’s similar offering.

To be fair, we’re calling out FSC for their terrible coverage today. For much of the match, the video quality was almost unwatchable and occasionally the stream froze for extended periods. At one point the feed skipped from the 63rd minute to the 69th.

Gringos, did you suffer through Foxsoccer.tv’s performance issues? Or did you wait for the replay?

    I’m with you on the foxsoccer.tv stuff. It’s been bad for me for a couple of weeks now. I wonder if they’re struggling with the weight of new subscribers. Last year I didn’t have nearly as much trouble.
