The BAROMETER

Postby Man Called Sun » Wed Sep 19, 2012 1:01 pm

It seems we don't have a thread to discuss the Greatest Club Competition in the World. Obviously a massive oversight.

I do actually enjoy the group stages. It's almost like the early rounds of a World Cup or summat, where everyone is totally up for it even if they're gonna wind up geting smashed every game. The Man City-Real Madrid match last night was a right old ding dong, exactly the sort of match the marketing bods get their cocks out over. I have to watch it with the sound off mind.

Why do ITV have the highlights the same night as their live game, and both on the Tuesday? Why not live match Tuesday, highlights Wednesday, thereby including all games from that week? Bloody stupid.

Aye. The fuckers have just had the full Scum vs whoever game then half an hour later they have extended highlights of the same game.

I'm not sure there is a single programme I watch on that fucking channel.

Perhaps, maybe, ITV is fucking shit?

Aye, fucking shit. There is a good highlights programme that I occasionally catch on a Sunday morning on ITV4 or summat, that I suspect is a standard one across the whole of Europe sorted out by UEFA. Has all the goals from that week and interviews with some of the more obscure club's players, that sort of thing. I love all that shit, but I keep missing it.

ITV4 have started a highlights package of Bundesliga aswell. Brilliant stuff. I believe its on every Monday night.

It's good to have, but I don't think they're making the best of it. There's no discussion or background to it - just a bloke pretending to commentate on goals that he's clearly watching on a TV.

Aye, it does have that silly 'acting surprised' element to the whole thing dunnit? I only find that slightly annoying compared to the arrogant bullshitting stupidity of a Townsend or Burley mind, I like watching it.

Related, but there's a bit of chat on Twitter about a bunch of Leeds going over to M*nchester tonight to confront Turks and Scum.

Total fuckin' dickheads, in my humble opinion.

I suspect that to be silly internet posturing, but you're totally right of course.

Amen to that. Richardson's the bomb, miles ahead of any of the other bastards on't telly.

It does seem bizarre that Adrian Chiles is the face of football for the biggest commercial channel in Britain while James Richardson presents a podcast and picks up scraps of TV work here and there. The world is all wrong.

Just imagine if match of the day was presented by James Richardson and the pundits were Barry Glendining and Jonathan Wilson instead of big ears, dour Alan and pointless insight shearer...
