The 200% Podcast LIVE!

Okay, so we’re running a bit of an experiment this evening. Tonight on BBC Alba they’re showing the Scottish League Championship play-off match between Forfar and Alloa Athletic, and so we thought we’d have a go at providing an alternate commentary to the match. Now, there will be something like a ten second delay between our recording and the match itself but we’ll try and cover that. The recording will be split into two halves with a break in the middle and we’ll get that going too, and there’s every chance that we’ll be joined by a couple of...

Saturday Night On Channel Five For The Football League

It had been strongly suggested since the end of last year, but yesterday the confirmation came, once and for all. After six years, it’s time to say farewell to The Football League Show. The Football League has signed a new television deal that will take its highlights package back to commercial television, and from the start of next year the three divisions below the Premier League will be shown on Saturday nights on Channel Five, instead, along with highlights from the League Cup and the Football League Trophy. Live coverage will remain, for the time being at the very least,...
