“Forensic World of Football”

published 20/06/2014

Mankind will go back to being apes without it

Banality warps logic, just like in society today

Sad news, at the end of this last football season 2013 -14 Alan Hansen ‘Match of the Day’s’ senior football pundit at the ripe old couch-potato age of 59 retired from BBC punditry, meanwhile the rest of us plough on till we drop off our perches - a sign of inequality times indeed. Hansen’s mild...

“Liquid Football”

published 12/02/2006

Hansen's the man

Motson'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...

The 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...

“Couldn't live without it!”

published 24/05/2011

Simplistic format ensures lots of footy action!

A 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...

“Big chins and jug ears”

published 02/10/2007

Good for fans

Slightly 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...

“This is not off-side”

published 27/11/2009

Can watch Gary Lineker, my hero

Don't always feature the games I want to see

Match Of The Day is the BBC One programme about football. They show matches from the top league, The Premiership, but before 1992 and the start of The Premiership, it showed the First Division matches. It also appears in two other guises, Match Of The Day FA Cup and Match Of The Day Live for...

“Will be missed”

published 14/07/2000

Uninterrupted

None

Match of the day was one of the few good programmes on a Saturday and I am very annoyed that it will not be broadcast anymore. The fact that its going to be on ITV does not help because it will never be as good, Gary Linikers a great presenter and there will be annoying adverts in between. Match...

“I'm glad its all over”

its going going gone

boring

Well that's it for Match of the Day and about time too ! Football is on the television too much and really is the opiate of the masses these days. If you regularly watch football on TV then I say, you should buy a ticket to a real game you skinflint ! At its very best - international, around 1970...

“loss of MOTD”

published 11/08/2000

Good package

Alan Hanson

I think that the loss of match of the day is the end to enjoyable Saturday night football viewing. For example, when I get home from work on a Saturday night there is nothing I like better than to put my feet up and watch how my team have done on MOTD. I find the ITV coverage is generally of a...

“The end is nigh”

published 19/09/2000

the whole show

soon to be no more

I was so dissapointed to hear that Match of The Day as we know it is coming to an end. This programme I would highly recommend to football fans anywhere. Hosted by that great striker Gary Linekar and his co pilot Alan Hansen the nation has a sports programme to be proud of. Showing up to three...

“I'm sad to see it go!!!!!”

published 27/08/2000

Great presenters, good coverage

Won't see it next season

Match Of The Day is something I always look forward to on a Saturday evening. It is an excellent show with excellent presenters such as Gary Linekar and Alan Hanson. It has become a routine now every Saturday night to switch on the television at 10.30 PM and enjoy some quality Premiership action...

Match Of The Day (MOTD) has been one of the best know programmes on British television for over 30 years. The show features on BBC1 and shows all the highlights of the football games that took place on that day in the top division of English football aswell as the best of the FA Cup action. At...

“End for BBC football”

published 13/03/2001

Good coverage of games, Hansen

On too late, Not enough games covered

Losing Match of the Day is the final nail in the coffin for football on the BBC. ITV over the years have gradually taken over the rights to stage the terrestrial TV coverage of the Worthington Cup and the FA Cup. But for them to also get the rights to stage highlights of the Premiership is a big...

Ummm, the Sunday repeat is on far too early.

Be afraid, be very afraid, as of next season ITV will have the rights to the premiership highlights. Goodbye class, hello arse. ITV are notorious for their inability to cover sport well, and make drama, and decent documentaries, and broadcast uncut films and...oh, let's cut to the chase, ITV are...
