They could stage the match as a massive eye test.
Night Thoughts and Brekkie gave kudos

Nope. You can have Man-Man, Lon-Lon or Man-Lon.

Yes, he was talking about possible combinations of cities represented rather than possible combinations of teams.

Although to be fair to DVB Cornwall he may have meant “quite fancying” in that he quite liked the idea of an all London or all Manchester final rather than predicting that was going happen.

That's it - null and void the whole thing. Laughing

So Sue Barker is presenting, possibly live, from a balcony on the side of Court No. 1 at Wimbledon rather than being in the studio.

Although looking at how cold and windy it looks I bet they wish they were in the studio.


It's a new studio, whether it replaces the normal daytime studio or the normal Today at Wimbledon point, I'm not sure.
Hello, good evening, and remain indoors.

As a cycling freak, ITV4 are showing Tour de France "Recycled" the 2018 edition when Geraint Thomas wins.

It's always a strange the 1st week, but theres a lot I'd forgotten- not least Chris Froome nearly crashing out on Stage 1 and the mess of Quick Steps team time trial on Stage 3.

But it's a good substitute for the 2020 tour and does show that ITV with VTV make the best use of the UCL feed in terms of both presentation, graphics and commentary.

Ironically with this "recycled", the 2020 Tour starting hopefully end of August then the Vuelta in October into November, plus the one day classics to come as well- ITV4 should be cycling heaven for the next few months.

There are two possible Man-Lons, though I get what you mean.

Yup sports events held behind closed doors aren't included in these lockdown. Racing also going ahead.

Seems there is racing going ahead tonight as well. Once again it's one rule for the elite, one rule for the public.

Stable boys and jockeys, the elite?

Racing and football are able to still go ahead because of the numerous, extensive precautions that are in place including constant testing, non-stop cleaning and extremely strictly enforced social distancing and isolation. I don't believe anyone would wish to undergo that kind of rigmarole to go to have a browse in Primark.
