TSV 1860 München
First team?
Reserve team is what I am listed under. I am on loan to a pro developmental team in New Orleans (under the auspices of the United States Soccer Federation), until June though (so I can get more experience and finish my undergraduate). Although I will be in Munich to train in December.

I found you on the Wikipedia. Would this be considered stalking?

I will hate to have to play in the heat of the Qatar World Cup in 2022 (assuming I make my national team). ;D

Indeed.  It almost makes up for his unabashed love of the Scum. :p

I'm going to the playoff game tomorrow. 

VAMOS UNITED!
Lol, my office knows me so well, they blocked the Man U sign.

PP, come over to the Merseyside, we have better songs.

Although "You'll Never Walk Alone" is nice, I'll stick to my Red Devils, thanks :)

Dumb question:

How do you all watch the matches you do?

Been wanting to take in some matches, but I don't pay for cable / satellite. Is there a decent (free or modestly priced) way to stream matches.

I saw Fox has some such service.

Wondering what you all do.

I think it's only MU's third loss of the season. No reason to get out of sorts. There's a long way to go.

I would think that between Fox, ESPN's Soccernet, or Sky Sports, there should be some online options for Premier League/Bundesliga/La Liga, etc. matches out there.

There are, of course, indecent streaming options.  But they are ethically dodgy and filled with viruses, shady ads and such (rumor has it).

Following a string of relegations, my club plays in a lower league.  They're rarely on TV, so I have to settle for local radio coverage (not all bad) through their official site.

myp2p.cm (and the multitude of other extensions) has alot of streaming, usually from pretty good sources. This is my first choice for stuff not on TV. Yahoo and ESPN will stream the occasional game as well.
