I hadn't realised that SAF attended the funeral. I read somewhere that there was a recorded tribute by SAF which included references to David Oates's time as BBC Radio Manchester's Man Utd correspondent.

Er, was anyone listening to Five Live last night? Thought somebody might make a note of it, especially given the strike was on. I didn't hear it, natch.

Who is Mike Bovill?!
He's a long-serving talkSPORT football reporter who is based in the London area and has been with the station for over 10 years. He also presented their rugby union programme Full Contact for the first few years of its run and was one of their hosts at the 2011 Rugby World Cup. I'm surprised he's escaped your attention given that he frequently reports on talkSPORT's football coverage, albeit slightly less often at weekends this season, and will often cover Arsenal and Tottenham home games. He and Ray Houghton are just doing updates on the game tonight rather than commentary.

talkSPORT Live carried talkSPORT UK's commentary on Manchester United v Reading in the FA Cup Fifth Round last night, with Tom Rennie hosting their coverage.

To note, Salty made a hero's dash across Birmingham with an emergency ISDN kit and set up just in time for the Blues comms. Top effort.

Thanks. So not really affected at all, then. Normally strikes at the Beeb in recent years have been on days without major football matches, apart from that Saturday in November 2010. Seemingly the football team aren't massively stretched, of course Ian Payne is a regular voice on strike days, but on one strike day they had to simulcast Australian coverage of a rugby match, didn't they?

Fair enough, I thought you may have assumed that. I take it you only read the posts about Radio 5 Live on here then? I can't remember the last time when I tuned in to 5 Live Sport on a Saturday but thanks to threads like this, I'm aware of who reporters like Chris Dennis are, never mind mainstays like Peter Slater and Pat Murphy.

To note, Salty made a hero's dash across Birmingham with an emergency ISDN kit and set up just in time for the Blues comms. Top effort.
Thanks for that and to Connor for posting both the WM and Free Radio 80s details. He just beat me to posting WM but The Goalzone's details are difficult to find out when you are outside of the Midlands unless they are tweeted by someone involved in their coverage. Just to confirm that it is Mark Regan and Tom Ross presenting tonight's coverage on their respective stations.

Disappointed that neither Five Live or talkSPORT did commentary on AC Milan v FC Barcelona tonight, Surely one of them could have provided commentary, even if it was off-tube. Five Live had Leeds v Blackpool on Sports Extra, but surely there would have been more interest in the game at the San Siro, so wouldn't they have been better off covering that?

I was out this evening so unable to watch the game on TV, but was able to listen to the radio on the way home (I have digital) and would have loved to have been able to listen to second-half commentary.

it is pretty standard for 5Live and TS not to provide commentary of a champions league game with no British interest except for finals and the ocasional semi final. 5Live in particular would struggle to justify the expense of picking up the rights I think.
I do agree though would have liked to hear it-- but understand why we didn't.
