Big chins and jug ears

AdvantagesGood for fans

DisadvantagesSlightly smug pundits

"When I was younger Match of the Day was one of those aspirational programmes that I would only be allowed to stay up and watch on rare occasions when my parents were out and I was able to convince the babysitter that I was always allowed to watch it and could not believe that they had forgot to tell her this important fact. In those days this flagship Saturday night programme was presented by the impressively large chin of Jimmy Hill whilst these ..." Read review

Liquid Football

AdvantagesHansen's the man

DisadvantagesMotson's past his sell by date

"Once Sky grabbed the rights to the Premier League there was little left. The BBC held big meetings over whether Hinckley V Kings Lynn should be the main event on Sunday lunch. Sky meanwhile delivered a Sunday football feast. Needless to say if you don't have Sky Sports then you're starved of football coverage. The only beacon to those in normal telly land is Match Of The Day. For a time folks had to contend with ITV and their highlights. To be ..." Read review

This is not off-side

AdvantagesCan watch Gary Lineker, my hero

DisadvantagesDon't always feature the games I want to see

"...1970. The show moved to BBC1 in 1983 but would still occasionally in later years show highlights of FA Cup matches on BBC2. The final Fourth Division game to be shown was between Blackpool and York City on February 4, 1984. Coverage of the Second and Third Divisions slowly dwindled down until it was finally dropped in 1986. Presenters of the show in order of appearance: Kenneth Wolstenholme, Jimmy Hill, Des Lynam, Gary Lineker ..." Read review

Couldn't live without it! Review with images

AdvantagesSimplistic format ensures lots of footy action!

DisadvantagesA little cliched, Alan Shearers punditry.

"Match Of The Day is a phenomenon, a classic for millions of men and women around the country who want to keep up with the weekends football. MOTD is a classic, and is still the best, it gives me my weekly fix of football and often wake up early on a Sunday morning for it, and it is well worth sacrificing a lie in for! Its simple format focuses around the football and that is where the show focuses, it is interesting to hear the pundits sometimes. ..." Read review

MOTD!

AdvantagesIt gives you a great round up of the day's football matches!

DisadvantagesThe highlights could go on for longer.

"I love Match of the Day - I think it's one of the best shows on television. The reason I like it is because it gives me an overview of the day's football. I don't have Sky and it's impossible to listen to every Premiership game on the radio, so I enjoy a Saturday night roundup. Match of the Day shows highlights of the key football games that were played that day, the programme usually include top of the table and bottom of the table clashes. Once ..." Read review
