Think a highlights programme of sorts would be a hit here? If there is one I'm not aware of it.

All we ever see is Beckham and LA.

Maybe ITV, Five or the beeb could produce an hour long show to help promote the game over here because it could get decent viewing figures.

Sweet... I agree the highlight thing would be cool on here i just dont know if its possible just yet. And I have no idea what TV stations your talking about, but im guessing they're pretty popular. The thing is, we have the exact same problem here in the States. ESPN gives MLS a thursday night. And that is it. There are 3 games on Saturday that get no coverage at all unless you buy them off mlsnet.com. MLS doesn't even have a 30 minute program on ESPN. That being said, if you have satalite here you can get FSC and they have much better coverage of the American Game. But I have cable so im stuck with a Thursday night of MLS and the internet. It SUCKS!!

(There was a highlight show last season: "David Beckham's Soccer USA": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Beckham%27s_Soccer_USA_%28UK_TV_Series%29

Ironically, of course, Beckham was injured for most of last season, so the program basically became an MLS highlight show with large doses of comedy from host Tim Lovejoy thrown in. The noteworthy thing about Beckham's injury was that it occurred amidst so much buzz, and the potential for MLS to capture new fans in Europe and the US. While he has now settled in, the buzz has subsided, and it seems like he and the league are being talked about far less both internationally and on US mainstream media. The apparent cancellation of "David Beckham's Soccer USA" is a reflection of that decline in interest.)

mlsnet.com has a pretty useful section called Quickkicks which I found great for quick summaries on all the games.

http://www.mlsnet.com/quickkicks/

MLS needs to work on its international presence. Last year's MLS Cup was blacked out on MLSlive.com since it was shown on ESPN but no one here it Italy was showing it, so basically no way to see the most important match of the year.
