    For all comment on our games on MOTD. A poll on how often we get top billing as well in the mix while we gaze on in admiration at the analytical powers of Alan 'Creosote' Shearer, Gary 'the Holy Saint' Lineker, Robby '******' Savage and a host of other numpties.

    Be all about Everton and creaming over Barkley's goal..

    Can we get odds on this please ? Reckon about 1-6 odds on......;) Odds on Lineker having a sour face at the mention of us 1-4.

    Usual joke from Mr.Crisps on how Stones value has declined after Odion's effort 1-5.

    Don't they release the game order before the show now?

    Although it wasn't a great challenge I think they're going to make a lot of Troy's one on Galloway. And probably Behrami's on Mirallas. New tag of big, physical Watford bruisers coming up.

    Odds on this 1-8 I reckon......
  7. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    I put never but would like to caveat that with "*unless Lesta beat us 5-0 when they'll probably put us top."

    Not enough tim eto show our game. It will be rolled over into the football league show

    That will be no small undertaking WAS. Jugears 'And here's Kelly with what happened at Goodison Park......'

    I think MOTD cover everyone pretty fairly to be honest and on the whole I enjoy it, I just forward Shearer's bit.

    I for one am looking forward to hearing about how Lineker "caught up with Eddie Howe earlier".

    Really looking forward to seeing us tonight! Just makes a great change to waiting for out 30 seconds at 1am on FLS

    On the first day of the season they usually do the promoted teams first, which means we'll be third on as no doubt we are the forgotten one even though we were the only promoted team to get a point.

    Surely, surely - we must at least be ahead of Norwich on the show!... we finished above them last season and our game was a cracker.

    We will not appear. Due to unforeseen circumstances only the two Everton goals and various Everton chances will be shown. Instead, and in order to provide balance, footage of Bournemouth winning the Championship will be spliced into the highlights package to give us all something to cheer.
  16. Given the FL show is now on Channel 5 at 9pm, that'd be amazing

    Also, I think Lineker was fairly complimentary on twitter. So who knows

    If GT were in charge of MOTD I'd like to think he'd sub Lineker again

    You're complaining for complaining's sake - you can't really argue with that match being on first.

    Bloody hell they were positive about us. They even analysed us and our attack. Shearer was praising us

    ighalos goal...he must have cut in like that 20 times in the championship. i thought premier league defenders would have known this

    What was that stat that flashed up breifly when they where talking about us? We had the highest percentage of passes in the opposition half than any other team today or something?
  25. UpUpAndAway

    Seeing the cutback was reminiscent of Bolton and Middlesborough the way he cut in on the left and shot with the right. At that point I knew he would probably score if not for a fantastic save (which thankfully never came!). Hopefully he can stay under the radar enough so defenders don't pick up on it

    yea, had the highest successful pass % in the opposition half

    Just in from Everton - missed MOTD and the revelatory news that we got a good mention. Did they use the word plucky though? They can stick it if they did.
  29. lowerrous

    lowerrous Squad Player

    Not quite, but Shearer was pleased that we were "having a good go" when attacking (ie bringing lots of players forward).

    Murphy was noticeably tongue tied, probably because he predicted we would be bottom
  31. Clive_ofthe_Kremlin

    Who at the BBC is responsible for the new MOTD opening titles including "L*T*N" in large letters across the screen?

    It's another slap in the face from Lineker and co.
  32. HappyHornet24

    HappyHornet24 Crapster Staff Member

    Is the fact that Ipswich is featured too a slap in the face from Linekar and co to Norwich then?
  33. Smudger

    Smudger Messi's Mad Coach Staff Member

    Another clueless buffoon. Son of Frankenstein.

    Don't like the opening titles. I think Vydra appears for about half a second. Last year's titles were rather good.
  34. HappyHornet24

    HappyHornet24 Crapster Staff Member

    Just watching MOTD now. Not Watford related, but did anyone else notice the rather rotund Aston Villa fan who tried to jump onto the pitch to join the players' celebrations when they scored, only to literally fall flat on his face. :]]

    He couldn't work out how we had so many players from last season in the squad after they all went back to Udinese.
