P.S. With Gabby Logan doing a show for Amazon this season does that mean that the BBC's Premier League Show has been dropped with the new cycle, or is that still going with or without Gabby hosting?
The Premier League Show wasn't mentioned in the new season press release, but new show MOTDx was, which is going to focus on "the lifestyle and culture of the Premier League" and will be presented by Jermaine Jenas. The Premier League Show was going a lot of that at the end, with regular music features, so it looks like it'll be pretty much an extension of that, aimed at younger audiences. If that is it from The Premier League Show, it's no great loss, it never really seemed to have much of a reason to exist other than being Football Focus II, so if MOTDx is a bit more focused with a genuine point and target audience then that's fair enough. I probably won't be the target audience, but they do other shows that appeal to me.
Gabby is however mentioned in the press release - https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2019-20-football-season-on-the-BBC
- so presumably she'll be filling in and doing live games throughout the season. This Amazon show is hardly going to be a full-time job. Neither was presenting The Premier League Show, really.
