    The Leeds/Liverpool was meant to be televised here in the US on Saturday, but during the week the satellitte company pulled the game in favour of Brum/Bolton. I'm not here to discuss the rights and wrongs of the satellitte company, but rather, have we really sunk so badly that Brum/Bolton is seen as the better game? Sign of the times, perhaps?

    I bet they have something in the contract where they have to show every team once. Perhaps this was just a good time to get the Bolton game in, given that neither we nor Leeds really has a fire in their ass at the moment . . .

    Or maybe we just suck and everyone is sick of watching us blow games by playing 4-man-circle-jerk at the back.

    Well the results show they made a poor decision, 1-0 on TV and a 3-1 barnburner at Anfield.

    clearly, any telecast with Emile Heskey is always quality entertainment. what where they thinking?

    This is down to Sky. They chose to televise the Brum game (for why, I know not) but considering the regularity with which they show Liverpool games, I don't think any qualitative judgement can be inferred.

    Perhaps true, Matt, but I can't help feeling that some suit and tie said somewhere "Leeds? crap; Liverpool ? boring, not much better, lost three in a row. Brum/Bolton? Hmmm! Should probably be a better game - let's show it instead."

    It surprises me that no-one at Sky shows the best game from the Premiership weekend sometime Sunday evening.

    Wolves v Leicester - not everyone's cup of tea, but with what happened there'd surely be some interest in seeing the full game.

    IIRC in Germany every game is televised... I think you choose which game you want to watch (a la Sky's Champs League night).

    I don't think so...Liverpool V Leeds is a big match no matter what the current form is for either team.
