Public service announcement

Just in case you didn't know, and with apologies to readers outside the UK, Sky Sports 1 is free today on Freeview channel 11 (Pick TV). Highlights include Leeds v Sheffield Wednesday at lunchtime and Swansea v Man Utd at teatime.

They're only doing it to try and nobble BT Sport's big day (whose live coverage features the opening game of the Premier League season, Liverpool v Stoke at 12.45pm), but the important thing here is that, for the first time in twenty-odd years there's an actual live top-division English league game on national terrestrial television (even if it does feature Manchester bloody United).

get yourself along to your local ground instead Kippers, nothing beats watching live football even if the standard of football is shite.
