The Future is League

Major shake up for question of sport

Recommended Posts

Stopped watching it years ago when i learned that the guests were more or less told what to read up on . Always wondered why they could recognise obscure sportspeople and bring to mind who won the bronze in the 1984 triple jump etc.

Bill Beaumont was really clued up , and Willie Carson had an annoying laugh . I guess they’re not on anymore

Not watched it since the golden age of Emlyn Hughes vs Bill Beaumont.

There was a lot less sport on tv then so it was always the chance to glimpse something new or relive something rarely shown.

I just can’t be bothered now and sadly don’t recognise many guests.

The current trio have been on the show for ages, and it became stale a long time ago.

The team captains have to have a fun personality,  don't mind embarrassing themselves and reasonably recognisable. Matt Le Tissier is now out of work and what  about  Chris Eubank,  I'd just possibly give that a go.

My money is on a women's footballer. 

If Alex Scott gets the gig then I may have a passing interest.

Please God, not Rio Ferdinand, Fred Flintoff or a right-on comedian.

Mark Chapman would be a good host and Bradley Wiggins would be a good captain.

You need someone with a sense of humour who can lose with good grace ... not common commodities in sportsmen and sportswomen.

Must be some sort of TGG telepathy going on here, as I thought these same thoughts when I heard about 'the revamp'.

I'll give it a watch when the new lot take over, whoever they are, just out of curiosity. For the viewer, it can be a pretty challenging quiz, once you strip out the tired blokiness.

Of course, some people are treating this as the equivalent of Clarkson, May and Hammond leaving Top Gear and getting into an almighty froth of unfocused rage. But some people are like that and need to get out more.

Can I nominate Sam Quek? 

Who's she I hear you ask in the hopes I'll clarify?

Here's a picture of Sam relaxing with a cold drink.

Twitter is full of intolerant gibberings from the emotionally-incontinent and grammatically-challenged.

Many of them, often with the flag of St George emoji in their account ID, saying that them there Blacks and Gays and WIMMIN! are taking over THER HOLE WURLD!

Where were they when David Coleman was replaced?

Not having a twitter account was one of my better decisions from what I see of it

They will be livid about the woke BBC up to and beyond the moment that a blandly predictable and don't-scare-the-horses trio are put in place.
