Not just Wimbledon!

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I’m delighted to see football back on the BBC. For far too long, the BBC has squandered the licensing fee on antiques programmes, “celebrity” dancing and other such nonsense, whilst sports coverage deteriorated and was capitalised by Sky.

Maybe Jonathan Ross’ departure has freed up some much needed funds to invest into the national game, or maybe someone upstairs at the BBC finally realised no one gives a crap about how orange their antiques expert may be? Whatever it is, the channel funded by the nation has finally seen sense and brought back the nations favourite past-time.

This does mean our season will get under way a little later than originally scheduled, and those of you that can’t make the game will have to cope with the anti-Leeds jibes of Alan Hansen (although you could just turn the sound off and listen to the radio coverage), but overall, this is great for the game. The added attention the Championship will receive should go some way to lessening the huge gap between the Prem and the lower leagues and ensure those teams lower down aren’t totally forgotten about – Not that there was ever any chance Leeds United would be!
