Not a huge fan of the background free logo - could do with an elipse behind it or something. Wink

RTÉ2 is not showing their CL coverage of Atalanta vs PSG tonight. It's only being exclusively shown via VM Sport.

Eh? "Thunderstorms" doesn't make much sense, since:

a) it was apparently fine via red button / BT Sport 1 Extra;
b) the stadium sound is in sync with the video, but the commentators (who are in the UK, AIUI) are ahead by ~5 seconds...

I can't think of a reason why thunderstorms would cause whatever the commentators are watching to be ahead of the incoming video since they should be watching the same feed, surely?

The commentators are in Lisbon.

Ah, is that for every match or only some of them? I was told that BT were doing commentary from the UK, when perhaps they actually meant “some commentary”.

Some of the matches over the last week have been off-tube, but the remainder are all on site.

They’ll have Barcelona v Bayern Munich on Friday.

Can't be denied, however, that this is another blow for smaller clubs - and not just in terms of money. They'd all love to play at Anfield or Old Trafford; the only way they can do so now is if they're drawn as the away team.
"What is two plus two?" "Rather more than three." "Yes, but can you be more specific?" "The Belgians."

EFL Cup is also abandoning two legged semi finals next year, and the first four rounds will be all played in September.

The two-legged semi finals have been an oddity for years - in terms of broadcasting would make more sense for all 4 quarter finals to be shown instead.
