British Football Fans Are Loving American Coverage Of The Champions League


British football fans aren't alien to the idea of their pundits having a bit of banter between them, especially when it comes to Carragher and Gary Neville or, perhaps surprisingly, Richards and Roy Keane.

The former Manchester City full back's personality is so infectious that even Keane can't help but drop his often dour persona from time to time.

However there is still a very serious side to punditry in this country, especially when it comes to the Champions League, and fans were jealous of the US' coverage.

On Tuesday, Abdo presented a segment with here three esteemed pundits in which they answered fairly quick fire questions about football - from who their toughest opponent was to whether Arsenal will qualify for Europe next season or not.

Whilst there is a lot of fun about the segment, and we get to find out all of Henry's favourite New York restaurants and Carragher taking the p*ss out of the 'Emptyhad,' there's also some interesting insight.

Henry saying that his hardest opponents to face were Paul Scholes and Championship Manager 01/02 legend Taribo West is a bit of a surprise, and will delight Manchester United fans no doubt.

Fans in the UK have to put up with BT's coverage, headed by Jake Humphrey, and there has often been criticism of the pundits and co-commentators.

There is very rarely anything as interesting or fun as what Abdo and her guests came up with on Tuesday night.

At least if fans didn't enjoy the coverage on Tuesday, the football was still excellent with Phil Foden's pass a particular highlight for us.
