FOOTBALL!...Michael Palin sees red.... by bIG bLOGGER on 3 September 2009 3:58pm
 
Michael Palin got his pen out recently and penned a short letter to the Editor of Letters at THE GUARDIAN. It was kindly printed by them on 02 September,2009,as follows:

Sir,
Your percipient columnist Martin Kelner [GUARDIAN SPORT COLUMN: 31st AUGUST] takes the BBC to task for its late-night scheduling of the Football League Show,saying quite rightly that "the suspicion will persist that the BBC is less than committed to football beyond the Premier League...".
Stones and glasshouses came to mind as I checked on the GUARDIAN's coverage of the weekend's football. Premier League pages: 6. Football League pages: 1/2.

...Red card,surely!


Yours perceptively,
Michael Palin,
LONDON.

As a supporter of a team firmly seated in the Premiership I couldn't give a stuff.

Sorry Michael.

:P

Well you know Michael supports the Sheffields (United and Wednesday depending on the day of the week, what side he got out of bed and whether it's a month with an 'R' in it!) and they will never climb again out of the Championship so the poor chap has a point in occasionally wanting to see one of his beloved sides bore us all on TV.

I know, I know....

Isn't the Championship usually shown on a Sunday on ITV or something ? I seem to remember my son (Wolves) wanting to watch it when he has visited on a Sunday.

Of course Wolves are in the Premiership now (again!)...

Just read a thread on a Sheffield forum (funnily enough) decrying the fact that the Championship is no longer on...

Sky Sports and what was Setanta show a lot of football, don't know about the Championship though.

As a Newcastle United fan I should be really concerned and I would if I lived in the UK. Alas I don't and I'm not.

Do you have football teams over there,kisch?
Up the Magpies!! They are still clinging on for survival.
