I do love watching all the goals from the Championship and the Football League each week. It is such a contrast with the days when football was first televised and I was allowed to stay up to see Match of the Day which might have found itself broadcasting two goalless draws. These days it is a disappointment to miss a single goal in all four divisions.
That said the format of the Football League Show has made the punditry so dull. Typical comment:
Manish: (Name) has done an excellent job at (Club); that's three wins and a draw, ten points out of the last fifteen. He's really turned them round.
Steve Claridge: Yeah, no, I mean, fair play to him he's got them playing and instilled some confidence.
Manish: How has it changed since you played for them?
Then Lizzie reads out some emails and texts from fans who either say their teams is great or rubbish and the manager has to go or stay.
Brighten up please.
Although not for the faint-hearted this spoof bio of Claridge is hilarious.
