Carling Cup Semifinals and FA Cup Third Round soccer on TV

Where to watch the best soccer games on US television networks, including ESPN, Fox Soccer and Telefutura. All times Eastern.

Soccer News of the Week:

* Just when you thought Tim Howard couldn’t be more awesome, the goalkeeper extraordinaire for Everton and the USMNT actually scored a bloody goal! Windy conditions helped lift and twist a long ball Howard cleared from his own box over the head of a surprised Bolton keeper during Wednesday’s Premier League match.

Howard didn’t look too happy about the feat, and explained his subdued reaction to Sky Sports: “I was delighted that we were in the lead and would hopefully go on to get three points, but it’s not a nice feeling for a keeper. It’s really awful actually. I’ve been there before, a long, long time ago, and that was why I didn’t celebrate.”

* A pathetic Manchester United side dropped more points, losing 3-0 to Newcastle United on Wednesday. The champions looked simply awful, as Newcastle dominated possession and the bulk of scoring opportunities. First-choice Manchester keeper, Anders Lindegaard, could do little about the goals – two exceptional shots from Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye were followed by an own-goal from Phil Jones.

* Put the rumors to rest. David Beckham will not be leaving Los Angeles after all. The deal with Paris-St. Germain is off; the British superstar reportedly cited family reasons for turning down the French side’s lucrative offer. This is great news for the MLS, which would suffer from a considerable drop in handsome (and skill, as well as global awareness) if Becks left the league.
