Any thoughts views etc on programmes like Soccer AM, Question of Sport and other types of tv programmes to do with sports.


I was wondering did anyone catch this new 'Take it like a Fan' on Sky Sports this evening?

Sky tried fan quizzes before, with little success. I thought that because many people on this new quiz were from Tim Lovejoy's channel bee company, it could be stale and poor. That main presenter used to be on Soccer Am too on sketches, but I thought I would give it a watch. turned out, IMO, to be a bit of a fun harmless half hour, few gags, funny P*ss take on Question of Sport and I thought Charlotte Jackson was a good sidekick.

Sky Sports needed something a bit fun like that on a Friday evening since the demise of the All Sports Show few years back.

(May well have put this thread in the wrong bit now :S)

EDIT: Moved. ;-)

I never found They Think it's all over funny... I don't like Nick Hancock, and David Gower on it seemed to serious. I think Question of Sport should be cancelled now, never was the same when Ally McCoist left.

Slim-lined Soccer Am was ok, bit more serious, I am not one that says axe it, just axe Rushden.

Chopping an hour off Soccer AM seemed to help a little ... I still think they should dump Tubes - I cringe every time he does his rapping.

Andy Burton's comments about Young Boys were Gervais-esque! lol

Was that the very early Russ Williams, Helen Chamberlain and Gary Stevens days? They even used to show a red card and send each other off in those days and that presenter wouldn't come back for most of the rest of the show!

Has anyone seen the ESPN series 30 for 30? From the way it seems to be randomly scheduled on ESPN America I'm guessing it's been show before and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for good episodes/interesting stories? So far I've seen Jordan Rides The Bus, Unmatched, Silly Litte Games and Four Days In October.

The Two Escobars is a must. One of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

I haven't seen them myself, but they were shown, funnily enough, over the course of 30 nights last year
