Massively improved from when it began...
20 March 2016 | by SpinalTapFanSee all my reviews

which tells you how bad it was originally. The studio audience are gone, the standard of punditry is not quite as woeful, the utterly ridiculous out-of-league-order structuring is gone, as are the rotating boards to indicate the league tables (and their spoilerish placing). They haven't done a Skyped interview with ropey video talking to an unknown self-styled 'expert' for a while. However, this is still an object lesson in how not to do football highlights.

The presenters are nothing short of incompetent, flubbing their delivery repeatedly (I counted three botches in one episode alone, including mangling the names of commentators Don Goodman and Bill Leslie into 'Don Leslie' - would it have killed them to re-record it?) Pundits rarely have anything useful to offer. Spoilers are frequent in the structuring - this week's episode (week 26, I think) told us that a Brighton win would put them back up to second - before showing the match which caused them to drop to third. Also, for no apparent reason, we've had a montage of the best goals scored in 2015 in mid-March - made worse by the lack of commentary.

I was pleased when the 9pm timeslot was announced, but right now I'd kill to wait an extra 3 hours for the previous Football League Show from the BBC, which was far from faultless, but at least it was made with enthusiasm, passion and a handful of brain cells.
