I'm looking forward to the Adrian Healey-Andy Gray pairing. Should be great stuff.

Why ESPN Classic? Most of the cable line ups don't carry them... :(

Andy Gray's a decent ringer: he has a fat contract with Sky in the UK, but since the Euro 2008 rights are with the terrestrial broadcasters (BBC/ITV) he'd be twiddling his thumbs otherwise. He's a good choice, but Julie Foudy's going to feel like it's the boys' club with him around.

Mustoe's still finding his feet in the booth -- I remember him as a player, and his day job is as a BU assistant coach -- and he appears to be getting the odd match that Gray takes a pass on.

Best bit of ESPN's coverage so far: a little more halftime and post-match analysis. If you watch coverage in Europe, even on the commercial networks, there's a lot more replay-analysis stuff.
