I am old, I've seen a thing or two so it never surprises me but last night I did chuckle at the quite blatant BBC bias on their MOTD Premier League Show.

As part of their build up to the United V vermin game they dedicated a huge chunk of the programme to people talking about their thoughts, feelings, experiences of the match and its importance etc.

For the vermin they had Danny Murphy, BBC pundit and noted Liverpudlian, Sam Quek Olympian and noted Liverpudlian for United they had Rachel Riley......eh bit of TV fluff and noted eh.......Essex girl!

not wishing to take this topic in another direction, but losely it's related.

on sky the other night(women's day i believe) the pundit for the Arsenal v ac milan game was a women who plays for arsenal ladies.

now i may be an old fashioned chauvinistic pig , but what the fuck do we need her opinion for, they may as well get some gooner from the pub, who plays sundays for the dog and gun...
similarly on the BT sport saturday show they have a few ex players , chris sutton etc etc , as do sky sports , then they usually have a woman player,

why do we need women on to comment on a game that is only played by men ?

they have their league, they have their sports , why do we need their opinion on our game??


i'm probably going to get slaughtered here for my prehistoric opinion, but i fucking hate women's football, i hate women at football , and don't need their fucking opinions on mens football.

have these women no ironing or shopping that needs doing

I'm all for attractive sports presenters, sooner look at that than Chris Sutton or Martin Keown... call me old-fashioned (ironically.) Laughing

The BBC's approach to Utd has become a parody of itself but is it any different on the other channels? The latest furore over the Fellaini / Mane non-penalty is a case in point. It looked like an unpenalised foul on the big fella. Now after a Klopp self-pity campaign and several freeze frames it seems that Mane sticking his leg across Fellaini a metre from the ball was a nailed on pen. Ffs. At least Fellaini dealt with it like a man and kicked the dangling leg out of the way. Stevie would have fallen over it and got the free kick.

That and the fact there must be some condition that ex-Utd players who go into the media must apologise several times a match for once having worn the colours with pride.
