    Reminds me of a Cloughie interview where he said their should be more football and less chatter. Tbf the technology didn't used to be in place to show more than one game in depth. They also had to guess which game would be 'match of the day' beforehand, so you often ended up with extended highlights from a turgid 0-0 and not a sausage from a game that was 4-3.

    Highlights of all the other games on Youtube now, no inane "expert punditry", all done and dusted inside 20 mins.

    Exactly this.100% pointless. Had it not been for the fact that you can now record the programme and watch it at your leisure, there's no way I would still be watching it. It doesn't matter how many new shiny graphics and photographic effects they give to it, the show exists solely for old time's sake. Tradition. But the world has changed immeasurably in the half-century (and more) since its inception. The idea then was to present a programme that was both informative and entertaining, something the Alpha male would have to talk with his workmates about on a Monday morning, over a cuppa and a smoke. But somewhere along the way it's lost its old-school charm and is now nothing more than an irrelevance, a football programme where the actual football itself takes second place to the opinions of a collection of smug, self-important, middle-aged wealthy men quoting endless clichès but ultimately, adding the sum total of nothing to an ever-decreasing audience.

    I still record every episode and watch it a few times a week. Just like seeing goals really. I pay little attention to what the pundits say but even that is good for seeing all angles and close ups of goals and incidents.

    I like tradition. Match Of The Day is part of English football culture. And for me hearing the "Drum Majorette" last night felt great and I said “nice one footy is back, come on City!” when it came on.

    I don't remember what he said. What did he say and how'd he screw it up if you don't mind me asking?

    He said that the penalty was re taken as Rice encroached and got to the rebound 1st. Hence it was a retake according to tubhead. The law actually states that the penalty is retaken if there is any encroachment. No mention whatsoever of who gets to the rebound 1st. In affect this law is generally overlooked by most refs as usually both sides have players encroaching. Interestingly the PL said that reviewing pens would not be included in VAR reviews yet they did????
