The ITV Cup highlights of Middlesbrough-Hastings featured surely the lamest after-the-event dubbed commentary of all. Every goal was prefaced by a pointless-to-the-moment statistic about form and previous meetings, so much so the commentator called Boro's second "a surprise" even though it came from a straightfoward attacking move he'd missed because he was reeling off Boro's recent Cup record.

Oh, we were thinking they must have been doing that, as well. On a different game though. It really stands out, dunnit?

So, as well as fake falling over and fake loyalty we've got fake commentary. Fake grass is making a comeback too. Anything left about the football that's real?

the worst thing about after-the-fact commentary is all the faux-anticipatory bollocks

"it's nearly half-time, what a time this would be to score... and he has!"

"They're in League 3!" says Robbie fucking Savage.

Four ex-Town players in the squad tonight, Pete. Look what we could've won.

It's a shame it's two legs isn't it. I really hope Bradford can get a bit of a cushion to take. A bit like the six goal one we took down to West Ham in 1990. Good job too as we lost the 2nd leg 0-3 and it could have easily been tons more. Come on Bantams.

Anyway in more 'cup glory' news we get another pop at Liverpool again. We're really regretting knocking down one of our stands now.

Bradford have a got real chance if it finishes like this, eh?

Oh my word what a game! Thought we deserved it overall, just hope we can keep them out in the second leg and maybe nick one. As against Arsenal the organisation and determination was brilliant, and I thought we played some excellent football when we had the chance.

I'm duty planning officer tomorrow morning in reception. Oh dear oh dear....

Did you have a few glasses of pop then Leon?

This is brilliant!

Although it's making me thinking of when Town beat Coventry 3-1 in the first leg of a League Cup game and then lost the second 3-0. This was, you know, when Coventry were a decent side. And Town. I hope Bradford really go at it in the second leg instead of trying to sit on the lead. Villa are in bits at the moment.

I certainly did Pete. My dad rang when I got home and he had too. He runs a campsite in Cornwall and the bar is closed on a Tuesday so he was sat in there on his own watching it on the big screen, helping himself from the bar!

I think Parky tends to approach away games by keeping it tight for 60 minutes then trying to win the game from there. Personally I think we need to approach the game in exactly the same way as last night. Its going to be tough, but they need three goals without reply to win in 90 minutes or two without reply to win in 120. And if it goes to penalties.....

My pal Mick who used to do BoyFromBrazil has checked Villa's last 28 home results or something and they've only had results good enough to overturn the current score about 3 times.

apparently there's a proper interview with him in this week's nme (the editor is an evertonian) where they describe him as "the indiest looking footballer since george best"

i've not read it

I've skimread it. By "indie" they mean he's mates with Miles Kane and has heard of the Black Keys. Pat Nevin is not mentioned at all.

Leon, great result. Do you work at Bradford Planning? Do you know Stewart Currie?
