Fox Football Fone-In returns to Fox Soccer Channel for the 2007-2008 season.

This is actually a little belated on my part (apologies) as the first episode aired this past Tuesday, Aug. 14th, but better late than never.

Hosted by Fox Soccer Channel's Nick Webster and World Soccer Daily's Steven Cohen, this dynamic two-hour live call-in program gives U.S. soccer fans the opportunity to have their say on television every Tuesday. Although the Premiership is the hot topic, Major League Soccer, the European leagues and current events in the soccer world are also covered on Fox Football Fone-In. Set in a radio-style studio, everything on Fox Football Fone-In is up for discussion, and no soccer subject is taboo!

The new season of Fox Football Fone-In premieres August 14 and will air weekly on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET.
One major change: Nick Geber has been replaced by Nick Webster. Apparently Nick Geber is something of a poker person; I had no idea:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Geber

Nick Geber (born in London, England) was a radio show host on the World Soccer Daily, broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio. His favorite football club is still Liverpool. He moved to the United States in 1979, where he soon joined in the United States Army. Nick met Steven Cohen, his co-host, in the radio business while working in corporate marketing. In addition to hosting World Soccer Daily, Geber and Cohen hosted Fox Football Fone-in, a television show on Fox Soccer Channel which roughly follows the format of World Soccer Daily. Recently, Nick announced on the radio show, that he will be pursuing poker on a full time basis, and will only guest host the radio show now and then. Cohen will have a new co-host, possibly Nick Webster.

Nick also hosts the Bluff Magazine poker show on Sirius Satellite Radio, and broadcasts from the World Series of Poker.[1]
Nick Webster is nice enough but I'll miss the constant running battle of low-level comic hostility between Steven Cohen and Nick Geber. Some have compared them to the Itchy and Scratchy of soccer fandom, although I'm not sure which one was supposed to be which.
