it's an absolute disgrace, that our national team rarely, if ever, feature on national television. eventually, we will head down the road of italy and spain where every top division team has every game televised, if not on normal telly, at Â£10 a game.PeeJay said:
You can hear the England fans singing 'We hate Setanta!' whenever the match is on Setanta, which is quite funny.PeeJay said:

Forgive if Im wrong but I thought the government in england passed a bill in the commons where all home competitive games whether it be football , rugby etc have to be shown on the free-to-air channels eg the bbc . Its a different story for friendlies and away games . Again not too sure on this but I think they are open to the highest bidder .PeeJay said:
