Fantasy Football

As if we couldn’t get excited about a new season in the Football League, the Beeb have dutifully reminded us what’s at stake by way of a new trailer, which is currently being aired across its channels. Having already announced their planned coverage, which is (in fairness) an improvement on ITV’s blink-and-you-miss-it The Championship, the Beeb seem to have engaged in a battle to win football fans’ affection by selling the League(s) as an endearing sideshow, complete with a set of cuddly comedy characters and, what’s more, through assigning perennial backroom boy Manish Bhasin as its frontman. There is just one question we need to ask: who’s your second team going to be?

is co-editor of The Two Unfortunates. He’s 30, supports Plymouth Argyle and takes a particular interest in the fortunes of those Football League clubs west of Bristol.

    I'd rather have Manish than Crooksy… The beauty of the highlights being on BBC is that the programmes will be available on iPlayer/on demand for a week after initially being screened – won't they?

    Or Shearer?

    It's definitely a perk. I lost count of the amount of round-ups I missed because of Sunday football last season.
