Channel Five’s coverage of the Football League this season starts with an immediate advantage as Manish Bashin and Steve Claridge won’t be involved. Presenter Kelly Cates ie excellent on the radio so hopefully she can transfer that to the TV screen.

The coverage will need to be better than Channel Five’s Ashes highlight shows though. Simon Hughes wasted five minutes after an enthralling day’s cricket recently telling us that Mitchell Johnson is fast and good.


The BBC lead off sports bulletins on ladies Premier League football matches and cup games with such breathless excitement, you’d think people were interested.
