I think the jump is quite possibly because they have been shown so recently in Drama - it does seem quite ironic that we went around 9 years I think without these episodes being shown on UKTV and...

Yeah, fair play to drama for leaving that in. They don't half make some odd decisions though in terms of what stays and what goes!

Anyway excellent episode today - so sneaky of Chandler to put...

Are there any pre-season specials this season, like the preview show with Souness, Redknapp, Nicholas, Beagrie and Mendietta or the pre-season Monday Night Football (on a Thursday!) that we saw last...

Perhaps though of course Sky do have a Saturday slot! Not to mention the Manchester derby has been arranged for the Sunday, Sky have the flexibility (we believe) to take the Saturday 12.45 slot if...

I agree BT probably haven't used a 5th pick for Manchester United yet but presumably there don't actually have to be 5 games shown for a 5th pick to be used? (i.e. a fourth pick could be passed by...

Matt Boyden was my favourite ever character, with Chris Deakin and Derek Conway behind. It still pains me they axed all three of them within three years :(

I'd tend to agree. Arsenal were in with a genuine chance of the title going into a huge game with one of their biggest rivals for the title - they got hammered 5-1 and were 4-0 down after 20 minutes....

Skimmed through ITVs coverage of the final. Unthought their studio stuff was better than the BBCs. Disappointed that Townsend I think started shouting over the Germany goal.

Interesting to see the impact Sky's choices for November 30th have on the following midweek games for BT, particularly Southampton v Man City - guess Spurs v Everton would have moved anyway. (Wonder...

I agree with you really. The theory always seems to have been on here that Sky would be most likely to concede Big 5 teams V Spurs as opposed to Big 5 v Big 5.

Two possible explanations are:

Week 3 definitely seems a contradiction to me with two decent thought processes in the posts above going in very opposite directions.

Apart from anything else Sky must surely have strongly suspected that BT...

Hull 0-0 Stoke last season was clearly such a great game that Sky just couldn't wait to have it again!! I'm surprised Spurs V QPR wasn't picked by either - there seems room from a quota perspective...

I guess the reason why there haven't been too many big games in that slot is because Sky haven't tended to have it previously. They did have Manchester United V Arsenal in 2009 in that slot and there...

I think there are probably two main reasons for Sky giving up Newcastle V Liverpool

1. To try and squeeze Liverpool for BT as you suggest.

2. On that weekend there is the prospect of Man City V Man...

I liked ITVs montage - I liked how they captured some of the broadcast moments as opposed to just the football itself.

Nothing like the originality of 'If' from 98 though.

I like the ties. I think it's tradition they only wear them for the finaj. Makes the final seem more unique rather than a day at the fete.

Perhaps the most significant part of the Martin Tyler interview is him saying he has no intention of retiring - others will have to retire him and he hopes it's no time soon.
