As we have no other matches this season I'm happy for us to win it, would be nice to show we're finally settling after yet another rocky few seasons.

At worst I can be in the pub in Hereford watching it with my mates which would be top.

You think you can tell him what to do? You think you can tell him what to wear? You think that you're better? Well you better get ready to bow to the master  

Frame this quote and nail it up outside every football ground in the world.

Did Ally McCoist shag Sue Barker or am I thinking of someone else?

I asked him that very question around 2004/5 when I saw him coming out of the Stadium of Light, after he’d been a pundit at one of our games. 


I was met with a very swift “fuck off, lad”.

They're surely not going to go back to this 'protecting 3pm kickoffs' shite next season, are they? It's been great having football on staggered throughout the weekend and being able to watch all Premier League games on TV if I wanted, as should be the case. Absolutely ridiculous if they go back.

I agree completely, premier league football is a TV show now with seasons etc. It hasn't been affected by the pandemic aesthetically or financially. Having no fans there has made little difference to the product and lets face it, what a time for a gay footballer to come out unless the guy controlling the crowd noises is Jim Davidson.

I beg to differ!

It depends. At the UKFF's Favourite Team's Wrexham 3pm Saturday home games we'd have a lot of local Man U and Liverpool and Everton fans there just getting their fix. Probably about 500 or so. If 3pms became de riguer we'd lose that clientele, as would a lot of other clubs.

That's the big problem, and It's the same at Oakwell and probably about 90% of teams outside the Premier league. The casual fans who will go to watch Barnsley every now and again as they fancy watching some football would be diluted, and many would probably just stay home and watch whatever Premier League games are on TV at the time. It then has a the knock on effect of stifling the next generation of supporters(I've lost count of the amount of times people state that they fell in love with the club when taken as kids to the 'Well by their Dads, who were not really Barnsley supporters themselves). I think it's forgotten sometimes that the 3pm blackout is there to protect the smaller clubs rather than to protect the big clubs gate receipts.

Are there any viewing figures available for the PL since they have every match televised? Just wondering if there will be any issues with the product being oversaturated?

Sky Sports have broken their own viewing records twice this season already.  They benefit from there being fuck all else on or to do.  I've found it useful to watch almost every match of my own team, but I won't watch the whole slate as my old dad does.

Sunday 29 November saw an average of 1.17m viewers and a peak of 4m tune in to the Sky Sports portfolio of channels...

Those figures eclipsed the previous record of 933,000 average audience, with a peak of 3.3m, set on Sunday 4 October.

It will be interesting to see if that trend would continue going forward, once things have got back to some sort of normality. I know I have watched a few more matches than I normally wouldn't, but can't say that would have been the case if there was more things I could have done to keep myself occupied.

I do think that having the odd match on the BBC will help the sport, though. I'm sure there will be kids out there who have been a bit indifferent to football, especially if they have not had access to Sky/BT Sports, who have actually been able to sit and watch a game live and as a result have really taken to the sport. I'm hoping that having the BBC and C4 showing cricket(even if it is this bastardised "100" version) has a similar effect...

I honestly think it's only a matter of time until the premier league starts a netflix style  streaming platform. If they kept it at a reasonable price could you imagine the figures of subscription? Add world wide and everything goes direct to the league. I think that will be the future. I may be totally wrong tho.

That game sums up why David Moyes would never make it at United or any other top club. He's absolutely gutless. A back five and three DMs against that United side, and in the form they're in. What an idiot.

They already had one in parts of Asia. It was called Premier League Pass. My mate watched it via a VPN. They showed every match live and later on demand and it was in HD. Was a good service but I’m not sure it’ll happen over here anytime soon mainly because the likes of Sky and BT keep paying silly money for the TV rights.
