It was certainly better than the League Cup final coverage back in the day were you had a bloke reporting from outside Wembley because no one had the rights to show it live

Whups.... I have a great dislike of the breed.... never met a good one... the ones I did come into contact with were... car thieves... burglars.... shoplifters... pickpockets... I know there is good and bad in all.... but their accent makes my skin crawl... and any job they get the first thing they ask is.... whats the perks... whats the dodges... whats the scams....

I wonder sometimes how we can call our country the UNITED Kingdom when there is so much prejudice of fellow citizens in other parts of the country and even towns and cities.

Especially, from those who pertain to be Socialists!

I'm still trying to figure out why the Cup Final was screened on BBC and ITV at the same time, we are not all football fans and would have enjoyed some other offering on one of these channels

Might be because, there are now no good entertainment programmes or good films on the BBC and ITV on a Saturday Night like there used to be a few years ago.

No wonder there are now more food pubs and restaurants.
