Maybe I'm just paranoid, but anyone else notice the MOTD coverage of the Villa match yesterday.
In the discussion and goals review afterwards they discussed and showed the first four goals (some praise for once) but completely disregarded the fifth and potential goal of the season from David Luiz??

Watched it and I was shocked aswell, like even with McGuin magic that lead to a penalty they didnít even comment on. That game there was so much positives but didnít highlight on much of them. I donít think they even mentioned nakamba name either (best player on the pitch for me). But yerp no praise what so ever Douglas Luiz which was strange enough

For anyone who is interested , 'Zomboat' begins on ITV2 at 10pm tonight.


The show starts in Birmingham when a zombie apocalypse takes place and it follows four people escaping the chaos by taking a narrow boat down the Grand Union Canal to London.

Outside the New Street Eye and a few shots of the Rotunda. Filmed somewhere in the South East I would guess.

Particularly annoying was that an external short of New St station cut to an internal shot of a completely different, and far inferior, railway station. Massive missed opportunity.

This is the standard of our local press. It makes me so angry.

Graham Young doesn't appear to approve of any initiative in the city. I don't know why he works in Birmingham. Is he a local man?

Not that I'm aware of. He hates trams, cycle lanes, centenary square, the library and loves car parks as far as I can tell. He's a dinosaur. So much for impartial journalism. The mail is just his rant flannel.

He maybe a dinosaur, but he's giving the city a bad name. He's in the wrong position. He should go somewhere he approves of.

Don't hate the player, hate the game. I would imagine he is paid according to how many clicks his articles get. So writing click bait is what he needs to do to make ends meet and afford the HP on his Audi.

He probably had dreams of being a proper journalist when he was at University and hates the travesty that Reach has become, paying him to misrepresent things and trigger anger and clicks.
