Enjoyed watching the Billericay game tonight. With Wycombe boss Ainsworth one of the pitch-side analysts, hopefully he'll tell his club's webmaster they're not playing Leatherhead Town in the next round https://www.wycombewanderers.co.uk/...on-sale-from-friday/ Crazy

On the National League round up prog on BT Sport, Bromley's manager said that Barrow's keeper had a good game.

This was after Bromley's 1-0 away win at Guiseley. Presumably the manager wasn't in charge of the sat nav.

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Not a sports presenter's mistake, but one from the boardroom instead...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/...and-suffolk-42043616

...with those in charge of publicity for Suffolk-based Adnams Brewery sending out a tweet that mentions "the mighty Norwich City!" Understandably, this has gone down like a muck-spreader-load of manure in the Suffolk heartland of Ipswich, with ITFC fans accusing the brewery of betrayal.

This brings back memories of the mid-nineties telly advertising campaign for Sugar Puffs, where Kevin Keegan brings on the Honey Monster to score for Newcastle United at Wembley (is he the only player to do so since Alan Gowling in the 1976 League Cup final? And they lost that one too!)...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TZka3k9Drw

Apparently, any sales growth of Sugar Puffs created by this advertising campaign was totally wiped out by the instant (and continuing to this day) boycott of Sugar Puffs by much of the population of the Sunderland and Middlesbrough areas! Some people just really should not get involved with football!

This is exactly why Carling sponsored both Celtic and Rangers.

Not so much a mistake as a distinct lack of knowledge from a commentator who had earlier claimed he had been covering Belgian football for many years.

During the Zulte-Waregem v KAA Gent match the camera panned to half a dozen people dressed and blacked-up as Zwarte Piet. Our man exclaimed "I have no idea what the significance of those gentleman is".

As Zwarte Piets have been accompanying Saint Nicholas on his arrival at Belgian football grounds in late November/early December for as long back as I can remember, I thought he might have taken the trouble to find out the significance ..... clearly not.

The BBC website preview of the AFC Fylde v. Wigan Athletic match, stated that Fylde play on a 3G pitch.

Earlier in the season, might have been before they played Barrow live on BT, the presenter told us they also played in a 5,000 all seater stadium. He was inside the ground and on the pitch at the time. Crazy

On the sports news on ITV's Meridian Tonight on Wednesday, presenter Fred Dinenage (legendary host of 'HOW', former Pompey director and close buddy of the Kray Twins) showed Oxford United's winning goal in the Checkatrade v. Gillingham, and said:

"Well done the 'O's!"

Well done THE 'O's??!! Ha ha! It made me laugh, but I know plenty who'd have taken strong offence! Roll on 24th March!

Tuned it at 1pm to Talk Sport 2's dire coverage of the Trophy draw. After 15 minutes of waffle about Man City etc, we had a four minute advert break before the draw finally started at 1.19. Ray Stubbs then seemed to think the draw included clubs such as Gateshead Trinity, Weston-super-Mere and Chezzum United. Crazy

Apart from all that, the draw itself proceeded smoothly and threw up some interesting ties.

One of the Leicester Tigers (rugby) coaches was interviewed during the game with Saracens last Sunday.
He said his team were 'between the devil and a hard place'
I suppose that's marginally better than being between a rock and the deep blue sea.!

On the Nottm Forest v Arsenal FA Cup highlights on the BBC website

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42526172

Just before 3:30 in. Whoever the pundit is said Forest's second penalty should be retaken as the kicker touched the ball twice.

If that was the case, it should have been a free kick to Arsenal.
