Gary Lineker for PM.
It should run like this every time. Who needs these morons and their asinine footballing opinions.
You’d hate it at Old TraffordNope, it’s crap, boring and quite ignorable. So so dull. Like lockdown football.
I reckon it'll get a fair few due to those watching out of morbid curiosity. Such as me.Be interesting to see how many viewers it gets
Well that’s BBC getting invaded by southerners for you!My biggest issue with this show is that I still struggle to see the United graphic in the opening credits. Every week I get to see the the opening I stare and look but it’s very subtle and disapponting.
West Ham get a full animation of hammers clanking together. Most disappointing.
It'll be loads but it's a novelty this week.Be interesting to see how many viewers it gets
I would assume no as the production staff would have to put the graphics together. I cannot view it tonight so do let me know.Will they even show the league table at the end?
On the contrary, I love it. It is a magical place.You’d hate it at Old Trafford
Whoever’s been counting up all the points is also boycottingWill they even show the league table at the end? I guess no production team means no table either?
I half hoped for an graphic saying "The following is a party political broadcast on behalf of the Conservative Party"I was hoping for some basic as feck Windows Movie Maker effects from 2000s YouTube videos on this MOTD.
"Oh and Salah has missed it. Hahahahahaha, you useless cnut. Goal kick to Bournemouth."It's fine I've doing my own commentary. Much more fun
But there’s no commentary there, or Alan Shearer to tell you it was definitely a red card.On the contrary, I love it. It is a magical place.
They're showing it now. Literally for about 10 seconds and then it's gone.I would assume no as the production staff would have to put the graphics together. I cannot view it tonight so do let me know.
Ha ha they do indeed!"Oh and Salah has missed it. Hahahahahaha, you useless cnut. Goal kick to Bournemouth."
John Motson has nothing on me.
Edit: Just saw the above post. Great minds think alike.
Sky's highlights are usually just the goals; they don't tend to show anything else.Regardless of how you feel about the politics behind the situation, I personally believe this is going to be an early nail in the coffin for MOTD as a highlights show. Anybody below 40 years old knows they can go to YouTube or Twitter for every goal and 3 minute highlight packages are going to be up within an hour of the game finishing. I remember as far back as 2005, that people were posting GIFs of goals as they went in on football forums.
So what’s the point of it if it’s already out there? If it’s punditry you’re in it for then there’s so many mediums for that now. Journalists are providing insight via Twitter. Pundits post opinions via social media. There’s fan channels who know a lot more about their clubs than your average TV pundit might, especially the smaller teams where your average TV pundit is a deer in the headlights. You think Ian Wright and Alan Shearer know the intricacies of a team like Crystal Palace as opposed to one of the big teams like United, Liverpool or Arsenal who are always in the spotlight?
So efficient.The most succinct MOTD ever.
Great way to kill 20 minutes as you wait for the Resident Evil 4 Remake demo to finish downloading
Yawn.But there’s no commentary there, or Alan Shearer to tell you it was definitely a red card.
A lad who sits by me does that every gameI’m going to the game tomorrow and might put 5live commentary in my headphones while I’m there just to experience the other side of the weirdness spectrum
Didn’t BT used to have an option to watch without commentary? I used to turn it off when given the option, it’s weird at first but you get used to it. Most of them are crap and annoying.It’s amazing how much a commentator adds to the viewing experience.
Had never really considered it fully before tonight.
Couldn’t drown in the Liverpool tears as much as usual. Especially when they pick apart exactly how they lost.
Who will blink first because that was unwatchable?
It’s a weird situation as I don’t need someone to tell me what I’ve just seen with my own eyes, but it does add something.Didn’t BT used to have an option to watch without commentary? I used to turn it off when given the option, it’s weird at first but you get used to it. Most of them are crap and annoying.
