Re: [leohoenig] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

My sister once got as far as the M4/M25 junction and, figuring the M25 is just a big roundabout, turned south. She got as far as Dartford before deciding that she shouldn't need to pay 1 for anything so she must have gone wrong, turned around and drove 3/4 of the way back around the M25 to the A1081. Unfortunately she took the St Albans A1081 turning and ended up stopping at a cab office in St Albans where one of the nice cabbies drove back to the M25 with her following, instructing her to take the next exit to get to Barnet.

She also drove to a wedding in Bristol once and, on getting lost, just pulled up on the hard shoulder and waited for inspiration. It came soon afterwards in the form of a very chivalrous gent who, it so happened, was going to the same wedding who parked his own car, got into my sister's car and directed her to the venue before walking back to collect his own motor!!

She also found her way to university on her bike once by following a chap who "looked like a student". Bit of a pain that he stopped to buy fags - and then smoked one while she waited surreptitiously round the corner - but her instincts were correct and he led her to the campus. Not sure how she got home again mind...

One holiday my parents drove from Alassio in Italy to Cannes in Southern France to watch them play Monaco. We had no idea where the stadium was so followed a car which had some people wearing colours inside. We followed them out into the suburbs, waited for ages while they popped into someone's apartment before emerging with another fan and then tailed them for another two pick-ups before we reached the ground just minutes before kick-off!

Martin Keown showing he knows the rules at the Pompey-Soton game.

Keeer jumps to catch a high ball, attacker jumps in and takes his feet from under him, keeper lands on chin (without ball) and ref gives free-kick to keeper. Keown is aghast at decision. When has it ever been lawful to charge a keeper whose in the air. Surely a pundit should have some knowledge of the laws of the game.

Ha ha - I saw that challenge and couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, even though it didn't look right! Obviously looking too hard!

The soft challenge on the keeper is always a favourite. I know sometimes it's true that keepers get soft decisions but then again anyone who's played in goal will know how hurt you can get if someone charges into your ribs while your arms are up catching a ball.

I gave up when I heard the commentator declare that the meeting between Portsmouth and the Scummers was their first since 2005.

Oh well it is only their job to know that the sides met in the FA Cup in Feb 2010. Result Scabs 1 Portsmouth 4.

.....and some suggest that the presentation of sport on ITV is pish.

Re: [thowdreds] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I have to say it doesn't bother me so much that presenters get things wrong, more that people who profess to know it all use what is said to add to their 'knowledge' base. I have a friend who is a massive football fan and, to my mind, makes a big deal about the fact that she knows more than most blokes to about the game. However, she is always referencing incorrect anecdotes to display her knowledge. It drives me up the wall, especially as those who know her fall for it and suggest that I don't like to think a woman knows better than I do!

Nice to see Sky Sports keep up their standards in sports other than football. Last night they kept banging on about the build-up to the second Olympic Games to be staged in London. How difficult it must be to get those little things right........

Re: [buncranaboy] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

With both London's previous Olympics taking place in years ending in an "8", and long before the creation of sport as we know it, it is easy to be confused.

Praising Shaun Wright Phillips last night in the match between QPR and MKD Clive Tyldesley said, "It must be in his genes" in reference to Ian Wright, his father (adopted).

I didn't know he was adopted. I thought Shaun was the son of one of his mum's previous relationships.

I noticed that too, he also pronounced the name of the Bayern coach Heynckes as 'Hikeness'.

Not a mistake but certainly incompetent, ITV4 seemed to sign off their African Highlights last night by saying a player was sent off, but they did not know who or why!

Listening to 5 Live last night on the way home from Handsworth as Chelsea went 4-1 up in extra-time, Nigel Spackman urged caution telling us that if Napoli did manage to pull one back, Chelsea would have to score twice more. The away-goals calculation seems to completely flummox these dimwits

I got confused by that one - he seemed to imply the away goals counting in double now applied in extra time - I thought that in Europe they didn't, though in domestic games (eg League Cup and Divisional Play-off semi-finals) they did. Have European rules changed ?.

Blimey - how difficult is it? At 4-1 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate, if both teams scored one more its 5-2 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate.

Another classic today from the all new BBC site...
I would have thought that the eighteen 18-year-olds would
have learned to Google as part of their research.

MERSEYSIDE DERBIES AT WEMBLEY
1984 League Cup final: Everton 0-0 Liverpool (after extra time)
1984 Charity Shield: Everton 1-0 Liverpool
1986 FA Cup final: Liverpool 3-1 Everton

1986 Charity Shield: Everton 1-1 Liverpool (this one was missed out)

1989 FA Cup final: Liverpool 3-2 Everton (after extra time)




FA Vase semi programme wanted: 2001 Taunton v Clitheroe.
