Episode 22 – The Football League Show under threat

Football League Show

In a bumper final podcast of 2011, the boys discuss the rumours that the BBC is planning to permanently axe The Football League Show. This after the decision ‘for budget decisions’ to rest the programme over Christmas and New Year.

We debate what this says about media attitudes towards the Football League, and analyse the pros and cons of Football League highlights potentially coming off free to air television.

We also look back on the Boxing Day action across all three divisions. In the Championship, Forest still can’t buy a goal, whilst at Watford Scott Loach is practically giving them away. In League One our Stevenage blogger Mark Hollis is on the phone after their fantastic 6-1 win at Colchester, whilst there’s also another turgid afternoon for Paul Buckle as Bristol Rovers collapse against Plymouth in League Two.

We’ve all that, Alan Knill on the brink at Scunny – and THAT injury to Chris Whelpdale to discuss. But not Google. Definitely not Google.

There’s also Barnet against Birmingham in the Allan Johnston Paint Trophy…

We’ll be back with in 2012. Happy New Year!
