Commentary on FA Cup tie, Prestwich Heys v Radcliffe on the BBC Red Button.

So far we have had ‘Whitchurch Airport”, “Longbridge Town” and “‘Back-up’ Borough”. He didn’t do too well with “Skelmersdale” either.

Re: [Sarumio] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

probably had a clue 30 years ago when there was a Town!

anyway, I'm about to expand the word 'presenters' to its widest possible meaning - presenting sport in newspapers.

Hullbridge Sports' local press stated that the recent FA Youth Cup 1st round tie with Peterborough United was their first time at that stage of the competition, conveniently forgetting their three previous 1st round ties (and even 3rd round during 1999-2000 - vs. Blackburn).

Double mistake in the commentary on tonight's Haringey Borough game, where the commentator has repeatedly referred to the club getting three promotions in recent seasons (once claiming that a player who had been at the club for six years had been involved in all of them), starting in "step 10".

The club last played in step 6 in 2008. I wonder whether they think that the transfer from the SSML into the Essex Senior League was a promotion.

Listening to Five Live on the way home from Weymouth tonight, the presenter said they were crossing over to Holloways Park for an update in extra time of the Slough Town v Sutton United FA Cup replay, obviously not realising they have moved from Beaconsfield back to their home town and the game was played at Arbor Park.

Whoever was commentating on the Southampton v Derby FA Cup replay on BBC described a Derby substitution in extra time as their "third and final change".

Forgetting of course that a fourth change is permitted in extra time, a fact that wasn't mentioned when Derby made their fourth substitution later.



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

One from the internet. On the BBC Sport website for the Newport County v Middlesbrough FA Cup Replay, it states "Newport County are looking to reach the FA Cup fifth round for only the second time, (also 1948-49)". This reincarnation of Newport County only came into being in 1989, 40 years after the previous Newport County reach the FA Cup 5th Round.

It really doesn't matter about re-incarnations. They do the same with Accrington Stanley.

No one outside of places like this forum, really give a rats arse what happened to Newport County 30 years ago, and that the current club isn't strictly the same enitity and so journalists like those at the BBC are really not going to waste their time.

Even if explained, most people would still see the name Newport County in 1949 and Newport County in 2019 and conclude that it is indeed the same club regardless (and to all intents and purposes, except legal, they are!)

Listening to Doncaster Rovers v Crystal Palace on 5 Live, the commentator, whose name sounds like Isle of Wight, repeatedly kept calling Doncaster's Ally Crawford 'Alfie Crawford'!

Although, to be fair, during the actual commentary of the Newport County v Manchester City match on 5Live, John Murray (I think) did mention that it was the first time the current Newport club reached the last 16, matching the furthest reached by the old club.

He also mentioned about it being possibly the first "first attempt" FA Cup fifth round tie going to extra time since the previous Newport appearance in the late 1940s, and crediting both facts to the excellent FACupFactfile twitter account.
