I think it's pretty obvious that TalkSport are prioritising the games which aren't on ITV, and there are obvious reasons for doing so, rather than the radio rights for home games being particularly more expensive than away games.
Well, during this season's group phase, talkSPORT provided live commentaries on Real Madrid v Manchester City (Matchday 1), CFR Cluj v Manchester United (Matchday 2) and Olympiakos v Arsenal (Matchday 6), all three of which were televised live on ITV1. On the three other Tuesdays staging group games in 2012, on two occasions ITV opted to screen games involving the English teams playing at home - Manchester United v SC Braga (Matchday 3) and Manchester City v Ajax (Matchday 4) - while talkSPORT stuck to their usual policy of covering games taking place on the continent, Shakhtar Donetsk v Chelsea and Schalke 04 v Arsenal respectively. The only game involving an English side away from home during this season's group stage that ITV selected and talkSPORT didn't was Juventus v Chelsea on Matchday 5, on that evening talkSPORT went for Benfica v Celtic instead.

During both the previous and the current season, talkSPORT have quite clearly been operating a policy of covering away games for the British clubs in the Champions League whenever possible, for whatever reason that may be (I'm not speculating as to why this is, just pointing out an obvious trend I have noticed). Of the 13 Champions League games the station will have covered this season by the end of the Round of 16, only two of these matches have been played in the UK (Chelsea's games v Juventus on the Wednesday of Matchday 1 and v FC Nordsjaelland on the Wednesday of Matchday 6). On both of those occasions, all three of the British teams in action that night were playing at home. On the two evenings during the group stage when they did not do a commentary game (the Wednesdays of Matchdays 2 and 5), both Arsenal and Manchester City were playing at home.

Last season, talkSPORT broadcast 18 live Champions League commentaries - every single one of those games was played outside of the UK. I don't have the statistics to hand to tell you how many of those 18 fixtures were also live on ITV, but I seem to remember that at least a reasonable proportion of these games were.

Yes, clearly there are very obvious reasons why talkSPORT would get a bigger audience for a live Champions League commentary on a Wednesday night than they would on a Tuesday night, and that Tuesday games that are exclusive to Sky Sports would almost certainly gain them more listeners than those that are live on ITV would, but as you can see from the statistics I have provided, offering commentaries on games that are not live on free-to-air television through ITV has not been UTV's main determining factor when it comes to buying rights for talkSPORT - if this was the case, they surely wouldn't have covered half of the group games ITV televised this season.

As I posted on here on the day the Round of 16 draw was made and the fixture list was drawn up, I just think it's a happy coincidence for talkSPORT that the three away legs involving the three remaining British teams are taking place on Wednesdays and so are on Sky Sports rather than on Tuesdays and ITV. Undoubtedly, this will have been what UTV management will have been hoping for in order to maximise their listening audience for the three games they were always likely to pick up commentary rights to. But had the draw worked out differently, would talkSPORT have altered their usual selection policy? I guess we'll never know, but going by their choices over the past 18 months I doubt it.

Going by Twitter, Jimmy Walker will be doing punditry with Rob Gurney throughout WM Sport as well. Jimmy announced his retirement from playing last week, having spent 13 and a half seasons at Walsall over two different spells with the club, and I would not be surprised if he is looking to get into the media on a regular basis after doing bits for West Ham United's programme and website during his time at Upton Park. He is one of Midlands football's real characters as well as one of the best players to have turned out for the Saddlers down the years so I wish him all the best and hope we get to hear plenty of him on WM.

WM's coverage of the British Grand Prix athletics from the Alexander Stadium has been broadcast live on the station's DAB and online platforms from 1.30pm today, hence why the Birmingham game isn't on DAB in Birmingham. Wacka isn't the only new member of the WM Sport team this afternoon, it's a debut too for Kate Dennison.

Saturday 16th February - talkSPORT

Adrian Durham presenting Matchday Live from Stadium:MK, followed by Georgie Bingham presenting FA Cup Exclusive and Call Collymore from Boundary Park

FA Cup Fifth Round
Luton Town v Millwall - Sam Matterface and Ray Houghton (12.45pm commentary), with George Cummins producing
Arsenal v Blackburn Rovers - Nigel Pearson and Ray Parlour (3pm commentary), with Ian Abrahams at pitchside
Milton Keynes Dons v Barnsley - Dave Rowe and Adrian Durham
Oldham Athletic v Everton - Nigel Adderley and Stan Collymore (6pm commentary), with Simon Humphreys at pitchside and Carl Ralley producing

Championship
Cardiff City v Bristol City - Roger Hughes
Birmingham City v Watford - Kev Lawrence
Crystal Palace v Middlesbrough - Elliot Cook
Derby County v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Tony Incenzo
Hull City v Charlton Athletic - Graham Courtney

Going by the talkSPORT.co.uk schedule, Adrian Durham (welcome back) is presenting Matchday Live until the later time of 5.30pm before Georgie Bingham takes over to present coverage of the later-than-usual evening kick-off of Oldham v Everton (at least that's what Sam said in commentary earlier, although she is at Ipswich today so if he's correct I'm not sure how that's going to work). Due to the later kick-off, Call Collymore will be truncated to just an hour long phone-in, with Ian Danter's return to Football First beginning at that show's usual time of 9pm. There was no pitchside reporter at the early game from Kenilworth Road.

talkSPORT Live are only doing four commentaries this week, Oldham v Everton this evening, Manchester City v Leeds United and Liverpool v Swansea City tomorrow and Manchester United v Reading on Monday.

I've always been impressed with the coverage WM gives the GP, it's a great meeting (I've been a couple of times), I am glad they still give it good billing post DQF

David Oates funeral was held on Thursday with over 500 people turning up include Sir Alex.

A charity page (Just Giving) has been setup in his honour, I hope no one minds me posting it:

After today's game, Arsene Wenger sought out Oates' widow to give a donation, great gesture.

Saturday 16th February - talkSPORT

Adrian Durham presenting Matchday Live from Stadium:MK, followed by Georgie Bingham presenting FA Cup Exclusive and Call Collymore from Boundary Park.
Georgie Bingham didn't present talkSPORT's Oldham Athletic v Everton coverage after all, instead Adrian Durham stuck around at Stadium:MK for the near hour between the end of the 3pm kick-offs and the 6pm late game. It was then just a case of commentator Nigel Adderley doing the links at half-time and that bit at full-time before Call Collymore.

I should mention that although there was still 10 of the 12 minutes of stoppage time remaining in the MK Dons v Barnsley game when Arsenal v Blackburn ended, talkSPORT didn't then cross over for commentary at Stadium:MK but instead chose to do the usual Around the Grounds thing of taking full-time reports from elsewhere before Dave Rowe did his final update from Milton Keynes.

As to how talkSPORT filled the 5-6pm hour, not only did they preview the late game (both with Nigel and Stan talking about it and with pitchside man Simon Humphreys talking to fans outside the ground), but Adrian had interviews with Barnsley manager David Flitcroft and (over the phone) Blackburn manager Michael Appleton while Ian Abrahams interviewed Blackburn's Scott Dann. Adrian and Ray Parlour also took a few calls from disgruntled Arsenal fans and Ade had a chat with Alvin Martin, who was at the ground not in a working capacity but to watch his son, MK Dons keeper David Martin. For those of you who have noticed that Alvin is not co-commentating this weekend and are wondering why this is, I presume this is because he is presenting the Weekend Sports Breakfast with Mark Saggers as cover for usual co-host Micky Quinn, who is on holiday. It's a shame they didn't give Alvin Monday night's match to make up for this, but then Monday night's Kick Off is Stan Collymore's usual gig.

Arsenal v Blackburn Rovers - Lee Stott

GAA Football: All-Ireland Senior Football Championships Semi-Finals
Crossmaglen Rangers v St Brigid's - Oisin Langan
Dr. Crokes v Ballymun Kickhams - Dave McIntyre

Newstalk didn't take updates the MK Dons v Barnsley game as far as I heard. I'm guessing IRN didn't send a reporter to Stadium:MK as I feel it is unlikely that Newstalk wouldn't have taken updates from a 3pm game they had access too. Oldham v Everton kicked off after Newstalk Sport Saturday went off-air.

I believe talkSPORT Live carried the talkSPORT UK commentary with Nigel Adderley and Stan Collymore on Oldham Athletic v Everton last night. Kevin Hatchard has tweeted to say he'll be commentating on Liverpool v Swansea City for them later today so it'll be interesting to see how they handle Manchester City v Leeds United.

Tom Rennie presented from 11.30am

FA Cup Fourth Round Replay/Fifth Round
As talkSPORT UK

Premier League
Liverpool v Swansea City - Kevin Hatchard

talkSPORT Live took all three of today's FA Cup commentaries after all, all of which were taken directly from the main station, with Tom linking between each half barring of course the gap between the games at Manchester City and Hudderfield, which barely lasted a minute. At the end of the first half at Huddersfield, Tom handed straight over to commentary on stoppage time in Liverpool v Swansea City - this game went out in full on talkSPORT.com and talkSPORT Live 2 on TuneIn for listeners outside the EEC. I assume Tom, as talkSPORT Live's English language editor, also hosted their coverage of the late game yesterday. I'm not sure if they carried the Sixth Round Draw.

Has it been mentioned who talkSPORT's commentary team on the Capital One Cup Final will be yet? It's less than a week away but I haven't heard or seen it announced either on-air or on social media. It will be an interesting appointment given that in previous seasons this fixture has been the biggest of the live finals that Sam Matterface and Stan Collymore haven't covered for the station.

Lovely gesture from Arsene Wenger. I think Sir Alex would have known David from his Radio Manchester days, he was the United reporter when SAF joined the club I believe
