Yorkshire Television showed their first Live match of the season today, In a Soccer Sunday Live special.

It was presented by the usual regional team, from the Calendar studio.

(Remember, a Leeds United Champions League fixture was once presented from the Calendar studio).

Has your region had live football today/last week?

LWT had Crystal Palace vs Norwich (I think) last week under Soccer Sunday Live. Terrible London Tonight-style graphics, presented from their own studio.

Granada had its second:

Burnley v Sheff Wed.

The first was 2 weeks ago - Preston v Bolton.

They were both presented from the Soccer Sunday studio in a programme called Soccer Sunday: Live

There hasn't been any matches on Tyne Tees or Meridian (or Channel) yet this season!

Tyne Tees currently has no teams in the first or second divisions so that would explain that. I highly doubt they'd bother to put on a Darlington or Hartlepool match to be honest Wink
geordster
yes the fact that all of the thre big teams in the North East are in the Premier league saves us from a vesrion of Soccer Sunday, instead Tyne Tees put on a 40 minute North East Tonight concentrating on Premiership highlights with the ever incisive John Berresford. Should Sunderland get relegated, and we all hope and pray they do, then no doubt we'd get it....

Not quite true. The Swindon v Cardiff match although there was different presentation, the commentary was provided by HTV Wales - and as a Swindon fan I have to say it was very bloody bias. Bobby Gould virtually jerking off over the Cardiff players. Grumble grumble.

Bit of a relegation:D for Jim Rosenthal there.

ITV Football, ousted by Des, and now on Central's Football!

Or has he always done the football coverage on Central?
andyeighteen
i think its cos central produces alot of itv sport programmes (i think) - as:
bob hall is often on itn/the goal rush
gary newbon is often on reports for central news / commentating on central sport specials / pluc itv sport work etc.
central have a huge sport team - so thats why i presume that ... though im prepared to be corrected by anyone who knows for certain.

IMO i dont think presenting on central regional sports shows should be considered relegation - the pinnacle of his career im sure Smile

what happens in other regions, eg channel, border, utv, where theres no footie?
