Yes, as mentioned, they spent 20 million on education but forgot to take it out of the BBC1 budget so they spent it twice. A lot of planned shows got axed, I remember 100%, the BBC2 youth show with...

Because it was a 2.30am kick-off, Sky didn't bother with any presentation for Real Madris vs Roma, Keatings and Gibson did it all out of vision. When even Alan Curbishley can't be bothered to attend,...

That 683,000 figure wasn't for the Community Shield, of course, it was for their opening Premier League match. But I wouldn't write off the Community Shield because it doesn't look any worse than the...
