    Lineker- another 5 year contract

    God help us. When you read of the BBC getting rid of the whole Question Of Sport team to freshen it up( and doing it cheaper with 3 new personnel) you would have thought that Lineker would have been on his way as well. MOTD has become so plastic and predictable and needs a revamp ,with football stars/ managers who don’t sit on the fence and are afraid to really say what they think. I only watch it to view the Clarets highlights, most of the time, recording the programme ,so that I don’t have to watch the mundane unattractive tripe that is otherwise known as the Premier League. Not very often do you get a game where you think to yourself” That was worth watching”. So for the next 7 or 8 months we are being given the same old formula. Good job my tv has a button where I can switch it off.

    I like Danny Murphy as well , he doesn’t lie about the game and especially on talk sport he tells about his thoughts , his fears who he believes is good just doesn’t pull punches.

    You can certainly switch it off mal, but you'll still have to contribute to Lineker's wages through the TV license fee.

    And not one of them is worth a toss Alf.

    I saw it on the ITV news, where the women presenter said "in the top 10 earners there are 4 women but all of the 10 are prominently white".

    Now if that is not racist I'm a slant eyed little yellow towel headed gimp !

    aye Alto,there seems to be a massive push for the Blacks to take over..

    That twohat Piers Morgan was on this morning saying that the black footballers were the best and most dominant in English football nowadays pushing for more black ex footballers to be given a chance at management. ..

    And here's us thinking that its only folk with merit that get decent jobs, I've been wrong all these years, but now I know all you have to be is black FFS.

    As for Liniker taking a pay cut it doesnt wash with me, reminds me of about six months ago when all the talk was about men earning more than women and that arse John Humphrys took a £100,000 a year pay cut because of it, what the hell difference did that make to women, it just made him look good to the gullible people who swallow it.
