Not broadcasting Drivetime from Talksport of a morning is daft ..... and worst still is time-shifting the program. It's a morning staple.
This is probably one of the reasons the Motherwell gaffer was giving the flick.
No own goal headers
.... it was one way to stun the crowd
Using a TV audio feed on radio for football (soccer) is just plain daft. At what point in the English language does one hear the phrase "I listened to the video highlights - they were great!" . Surely Fox or anyone for that matter is offering up an actual radio commentary, you wouldn't run NFL or college football with a tv fee, why is the round ball different?
End of rant
Twitter Villa highlights vs Norwich
Worth a watch for .... the penalty that wasn't - even the Ross County gaffer agreed - and then Scott Browns red card for taking a Liam Boyce out in revenge - he is now out of the crucial Scottish Cup semi against Rangers.
Ross Country vs Celtic
THAT, was not a foul.
Great acting, tho. He really sold it
... and the outcome.....
Ross County striker Alex Schalk handed two-match ban for diving in Celtic draw
Second City Derby
Aston Villa 1 - 0 Birmingham City
.... well they will be looking to next season - but the middle is better than sharing space below Birmingham...
Two more matches left. Hard to believe Newcastle is getting promoted after one season.
Birmingham can't drop. That will ruin another season of derbies
.... so with Joey Bartons 18 month ban in England, will he try for the MLS.... The Scots won't have him back me thinks...... *(he was on 20,000 quid a week at Rangers) ..... maybe Mario can help him find a flat in Italy.
--- there always the West Midlands Derby against Wolves... that's something I guess.....
Let the fun begin..............
Sky Bet Play-Offs: Championship schedule confirmed.
The Sky Bet Championship Play-Offs order has been provisionally confirmed ahead of the last day of the season.
Reading, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town have secured their place in the end-of-season showdown, while Fulham are three points ahead of Leeds United going into the final day.
Only a Fulham loss to Sheffield Wednesday and a Leeds win at Wigan, along with a 13-goal swing, would see the Cottagers fall out of the Play-Off places.
Here is the provisional Play-Offs order for the Sky Bet Championship:
Sat 13 May: 6th v 3rd (5:30pm)
Sun 14 May: 5th v 4th (12:00pm)
Tue 16 May: 3rd v 6th (7:45pm)
Wed 17 May: 4th v 5th (7:45pm)
Mon 29 May: Play-Off Final (3:00pm)
Please note, if Leeds United finish in sixth place and Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield Town finish third, ties would be revised to ensure this fixture took place on Sunday 14th May and Wednesday 17th May.
All matches will be shown live on Sky Sports.
Fulham might make it back up to the EPL.
I'll root for them
.... meanwhile in League One.......
Rory McArdle scored the only goal of the Sky Bet League One Play-Off semi-final first legs, with Bradford City taking an advantage against Fleetwood Town.
..... I am posting this video for no other reason than the view of Moray Firth at the side of the stadium - that and the second goals is pretty good.....
Inverness CT kept their survival hopes alive as goals from Brad McKay and Greg Tansey gave them a 2-1 win over Hamilton at the Caledonian Stadium in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership. Danny Redmond's late consolation put some gloss on the result for Accies.
