Football fans riot over the official Goal.com app for Windows Phone


Thanks Daniel for posting this. The app is not bad at all for v1.0 but it's missing europe top tournament - UEFA champions league. Overall, it's a great addition esp for some of us who are still stuck on gen 1 devices. I believe Nokia has a hand in the development of this (paid for the development i think) per previous announcement few months ago. Niw if the main site can feature this on their website, it will be great. They still have references to the Win Mo version on their site.

Nice thing. Even though I'm not a fan of their content, I'm glad that many football fans like me will find it useful.

Football is correct, a game played with the feet and a ball. Not a game played with an oval-shaped object carried in the hands while wearing body armour. How is that football?

As a matter of fact Americans are also correct, their game is called Football, because their "ball" is one foot long.
Ta. :)

Hmmm it's OK, however it lists Aston Villa as Arsenal, so it's not been very thoroughly QA'd before release. As a result of this, there are two entries for Arsenal on some match days.

Got this reply after reporting the above, bear in mind the e-mail subject indicated I'm using the WP7 app

Maybe the customer support rep has failed to read the feedback properly, maybe it's an automated reply. Either way, the data in the app is evidently wrong.
