You've confused me now - why would Leicester fans travel down the A1 - it's nowhere near the city?

I don't often read this thread although what I'm about to put isn't actually a sports presenter mistake but so called wonderful technology.

I was watching the FC Porto v Benfica match in a café/bar in Porto. A massive game due to the standings etc & with the score at 1-1 & now into injury time the ball had just gone past the centre circle when suddenly a guy with earphones was celebrating a goal & then a few others joined in. Finally the tv pictures caught up & we finally saw the goal. It was only a matter of seconds but just didn't feel right.

Not sure if anyone else has experienced similar. I must admit I'm sure our delay in the UK must be a fraction quicker.

So much for 'live' football on tv.

I doubt the UK is quicker. The delay has increased since digital replaced analogue. Before the complete changeover I was watching an England game in pub where those in sight of the analogue screen saw the goals at least 3/4 seconds before those viewing the big screen.

Used to be a very good way to make a quick buck on Betfair until they increased their delay on matching bets to 8 secs Mad

Bad English which occurs regularly :

"X are the BEST team" when referring to a game which, of course, has only two teams.

To be fair to Anal Green He always does say "better" but he is almost in the minority.

... for recent Euro/World Finals tournaments; on certain nights for most late KOs, our youngest gets sent to bed and is allowed to listen to the radio upstairs.

Unfortunately the sound of his excited 'plates' thumping across his bedroom floor and down the stairs is a sure fire signal there is about to be a goal on the game we are trying to watch on Sk(h)y(pe) in the Lounge.

- we attempted to try and ban him from moving but he was always so keen to see the goal he tended to forget.

I have the distinct impression HD is possibly even further behind by a second or more.

... mind you we could try and enforce a 'talksport' only ruling - then he'd be at least as much behind the play as us - since they so rarely actually cover the game 'live' or keep up with what's going on if they can help it - even when they've been bleating all f£ckin week that they are going to Mad - particularly when 'Stan & Sam' are in the commentary box.

Not really a presenter's mistake, but after last night's England v Eire match on 5Live, Mark Pugatch said to David Pleat:

"David, you've been around the block, haven't you?"

TheWavendonian has just texted to remind me of, back in the days when we both worked on an Isle Of Wight holiday camp during the 1994/5 season, the day we were listening to BBC Radio Solent's usually excellent half-hour non-league roundup. It went along the lines of...

Presenter: "And in the Wessex League, BAT 1 Aerostructures 1, East Cowes Vics 3 Downton 0, Ryde Sports ... er ... er ... er ... ... OH BOLLOCKS!!!"

quickly followed by the clunking sounds of a studio tape machine being kicked to a grinding halt. Getting on now for twenty years ago, and still the funniest radio I've ever heard.

Showing the special insight expected of BBC pundits, John Hartson commented at half-time after numerous missed chances by Nigeria against Tahiti - "I wouldn't be surprised if they (Nigeria) made six or seven changes for the second half" Crazy

In the same game with Kevin Kilbane summarising, I am sure he stated that Australia would now struggle moving to The Asian confederation. Doesn't appear to be happening so far qualifying for two successive World Cup Final tournaments.Crazy

Smug git Simon Thomas has just informed us on the FL72 Review Show that Newport 'Town' were one of two 'Towns' promoted from the Conference last season?!?! He also claimed that Newport 'Town' are back in the Football League! And here's be thinking they were formed in 1989 and have never been in the Fotball League

No Football League Show tonight.
In previous seasons they have shown League 1 and 2 goals on international weekends.
Further decline in BBC coverage!

As an aside did anyone notice the number of sendings off in the FL today. Possibly refs from higher leagues interpreting the laws more strictly?

Another from Radio 5Live...

Last night, they broke off from Ukraine v. England to go over to the Luxembourg v. Northern Ireland match, where Luxembourg had just taken the lead. The commentator said:

"...and you can't not say that they don't deserve to be winning."

which I think is the exact opposite to what he actually meant.

Not a sports presenter's mistake but this year's Sky Sports Football Yearbook has a feature on Sir Alex Ferguson which his record season by season as a manager.
For the 1979-80 season with Aberdeen it gives the following league record.

P W D L F A PTS POS

46 19 10 71 61 38 48 1

This shows the absolute genius of the man. He can lose 71 games in a season yet still win the leagueSmile

Not sure they played 46 league games in a season in the Scottish Premier League either.

They've also used Celtic's Goals F & A (they were runners-up).

Mind you, it wasn't the "Scottish Premier League" back then either, it was the Scottish League, Premier Division.

Darren Fletcher on 606 is plonker of the day

A caller from Brislington , with a broad west country accent, calls about their FA Cup win over Truro City today. Fletcher goes on to make several refererences to Bridlington and trips to the seasideCrazy. Surely it should be obvious that Truro wouldn't be going to Bridlington in a regionalised draw?

Fletcher later admits he's never heard of Needham MarketMadMad

At the end of the game at Wembley on Tuesday the stadium announcer informed everyone that England had qualified for the World Cup Finals in Brazil where they would join the hosts and 31 other teams.
