Dreadful programme these days.
# Cannot stand Chappers.
# Sanctimonious commentators.
# Winds me up the BBC spend so much of licence payers' money in effing Manchester on sports production.

BBC is irrelevant
MOTD is a relic from the 1970's

seems pretty decent and normal to me.

It has two million viewers per week after 10pm on Saturday evening. In the days of streaming services I would say that is pretty decent. Despite the two of you not liking it, it seems to be popular and a good use of license payers money.

Here here.

For every indoctrinated libertarian moaning there's 500 people who love it.

I mean, it's a football highlights show made up of 95% football highlights and some former players trying to explain it.

It's not as of there's loads of scope to do much different in terms of format.

I stopped watching when they spent more time talking about it than showing it.

Maybe I’m exaggerating but it’s seemed better when less games were shown and you got a feel for the game

Had its day I’m afraid too many other ways to watch. 2 million ain’t that many.

I’d rather the BbC spend its money on local radio and TV than a few headline shows.

Plus I agree commentators are extremely annoying. They just say to much.

What do you want then? Who produces the football highlights show that you like? What does good look like?

It's not the football I hate, it is all the twaddle around it: Chappers, the commentators, the pundits, the sanctimoniousness.

Stream iPlayer 10 minutes after it starts, skip through the analysis and put a fecking record on.

2 million is a lot for that time slot in this era. There's a lot of different ways to consume media. It's not just the three channels like you remember.

It's been essentially what it is since it's inception - a collection of moderately relevant pundits analysing a compendium of football highlights.

What do you want? Brian Cox shouting down the screen and telling both you and Brentford to eff off?

Stop watching it years ago. I've put it on for a few minutes here and there now and again but find the presenters spoil it. Not sure who are the main ones are any more but can't stand Lineker, found Lee Dixon boring, Jenas even more boring, Shearer is meant to be a right laugh but that doesn't show either.
2 million is loads when terrestrial TV is on its arse. Nobody watches that shit anymore and yet MOTD can still pull big numbers. I suggest the problem here is you rather than the programme.
