Not very sporting....

Amused by BBC1's news programme tonight when sports presenter Sally Nugent, about to give the Premier League results, said: "Match of the Day follows, so if you don't want to know the scores, please look away now."

After waiting a couple of seconds, the scores were displayed, followed by Sally then reading out all the individual scores....

It's not the first time it has happened over recent weeks, but you do wonder if anyone on the editorial side actually spots such crass stupidity?

I saw the same news, and indeed made the same comment to Mrs WTM, who wasn't interested in the slightest.

Ditto - except that my wife added "anyone with a grain of sense would turn the sound down"

I like it.

A similar announcement is made on the ITV news, followed only by the scores being displayed on screen.

Just hope now that Everton put an end one of Manchester United's cup honours ambitions later on today...:-)

Stuartli. I thought you would be down at Wembley. All my Evertonian friends have gone, they reckon even if they beat United it will not be possible to get tickets for the final as they all go to the prawn sandwich brigade etc. So they are making this their day instead. I will of course be glued to the TV screen. Also recording it for posterity just in case Davy Moyse pulls off the impossible and Everton win. "Come on you blue boys"

Time to join the prawn sandwich brigade now!

I have to look after my other half, so couldn't go - feel a bit drained now, although probably not as much as the players on both sides...:-)

We've been saying for a while that Everton's name seems to be written on the FA Cup this season for some time now.
