Why does the BBC think Barnsley v West Ham is prime time viewing??

Just wondered...second division, third rate soccer on the Beeb's flagship channel at prime time on a Bank Holiday...
No offence to the teams, it wouldn't matter who was was playing, but one of the better teams putting four past the also rans was pretty predictable however they dressed it up...
Bit of second division beach volleyball (you know, the ladies teams from Australia) would have been much more imaginative

Sure sign of old age when you think daytime TV is primetime

According to my dad, it's one of the only sporting events the BBC show.

Must have been the warm up act for the gripping 5 live radio coverage of the US Masters Golf.

Oh wait, that's radio.

Must be waiting for East Nation Street Enders then ...

It was a critical match for WHU (who are a Premiership set up club)- and they have been in poor form -so 4 goals not predictable
Premiership is littered with too many small clubs with big ideas.

I know what you mean. I settled down with a nice cup of coffee to watch Bargain Hunt and was dismayed to find it had been replaced with something about Jesus. Spoiling the Easter holiday with religion!

I'm sure your post is slightly tongue-in-cheek, and some on here will sneer at the suggestion, but football is by far and away the most popular sport in this country and I'd probably go as far as to say that it's 'bigger' than religion.



















This thread will definately go in the bin, now that it's got football AND religion in it!
