    Thanks Steve but I don’t think I’ll bother – 8 extra channels of Gary Lineker and Hazel Irvine is just too much to endure…!!!

    Derek…..Thats a bit negative …I was only trying to keep “Rob’s”…up to date with new going’s on ..New channels ..etc….anyhow….In my view…athletics is better than …”The fall over and cuddle game”…. 🙂 ……

    Steve, sorry, not personal against you but these days we see more of Lineker and Irvine than we do of the sports they are presenting 🙁 I enjoy athletics, well watching it, not doing…!!!

    Anyone see MotoGP yesterday, live on Sport 1 (19°)…??? I know it’s getting a bit boring with Marquez always winning but at least Lorenzo made a race of it..!! Enjoyed the coverage though, as usual a lot of advertising but done when it didn’t disturb too much. Also the interviews with riders were in their own anguage without that annoying simultaneous translation (à la RTL) which means you hear and undestand nothing of either language….

    Just for anyone…having withdrawal symptoms from 4 wheel motor  racing……..

    Formula E is now on ITV4   7,00pm cet…….round 4 from Argentina…………..

    ok…… its a bit crap with washing machine engines…maybe similar sounding  to formula one last year 🙂 ………..but maybe a better slightly option than the Voice or Mama Mia………

    Thank God……..The Snooker Masters starts tomorrow…. 🙂 …………

    Thanks Steve, I’d forgotten – I was also a bit unkind about darts the other day but suppose we should support any “sport” where there’s a chance of finding a British World Champion..!! We might even consider a new mission for this site by promoting other World Championship events that we could excel in – for a start, how about World Championship Car Washing, or World Championship Lawn Mowing or even World Championship Queueing (could replace cricket as the World’s most somniferous spectator sport) 🙂

    What’s wrong with The Voice?

    Nagusia, the only thing wrong with The Voice is Sir Tom – sorry to say it ‘cos he has probably the best voice of all four coaches but just doesn’t know what to say…!!! It’s quite embarrassing to hear an American (will.i.am) not only demonstrating a superior command of the English language to a holder of an OBE but also inspiring confidence that, musically, he knows what he’s talking about…Tom is a bit of a damp squib..!!

    But I like The Voice…!!!

    Kylie was brill on the Voice last year…..But as there is now no Kylie involvement……can’t really see me taking much interest…. 🙄 … and i find  that Dickhead from the Kaiser Chiefs annoying  🙂 …….

    Anyway ….a great Darts final last night….very exciting finish…….as everything was on at the same time……..I didn’t know what to watch ….Darts (BBC2) or Snooker (Red button) or MOTD (BBC1) ……..decided on Darts live and record the others  🙂 …….

    Snooker continues today on BBC2 and for anyone with no BBC2 signal …also available Live On Eurosport de… Astra 19,2………….

    Will….. “Ronnie the Rocket” win again ?…..we shall see………

    Giving his reasons why this year’s German GP was cancelled, Heinz-Harald Frentzen said:
    “The cars are easier to drive and spectators have understood this. Today any skateboarder with a camera on his helmet can offer more exciting images than in an F1 race.”
