I have been using lots of different ways of tracking livescores for football matches, the main websites include Livescore.com, Xscore.com and Flashscore.com. The best website that is head and shoulders above the rest is Flashscore, the interface is easy on the eye and very user friendly. I had been using livescore.com for years and hadn't even thought about switching until there was a few glitches with updating the scores, we have all been there pushing the refresh manically in the last few mins! Seeing a goal scored for the home team and then all of a sudden next refresh and its back to 0-0!
With flashscore you can setup which games you want to monitor and add them to your games list, then when a goal is scored in one of your selected games you hear the crowd noise that a goal is been scored! So you can surf the web whilst not being glued to the livescores waiting for some action. Also you hear a whistle when the game is finished but be warned the sound effects are quite loud and I have jumped on many occasion when a goal is scored or 90 mins is up!!
