Recommended Posts

Guest

Set them VCR's....or recordable DVD's in my case !<p>A clash with the Sports Personality of the Year show has robbed Canvey of the presence of top name Gary Lineker at Sunday's big FA Cup match with Northampton Town. <p>But BBC1 will have a team of former international stars leading their presentation of Sunday's live Match of the Day from Park Lane. <p>Former West Ham and England midfielder Trevor Brooking, who now combines his broadcasting work with being Chairman of Sport England, will join Barry Davies in the commentary box for the Canvey v Northampton Town FA Cup second round proper tie (1pm). <p>And the panel of studio experts will be former Scotland star Alan Hansen and his ex-Liverpool team-mate Mark Lawrenson, who played for the Republic of Ireland. <p>Former England and Spurs striker Lineker will be involved in rehearsals for the Beeb's Sports Personality of the Year show later in the day, so Ray Stubbs - best known for Football Focus on Grandstand - will be the presenter. <p>Meanwhile, bookmakers Ladbrokes and Coral have both issued details of a number of bets for those wishing to have a wager on the big game.

I think the truth is that the BBC's insurers don't want to risk Lineker at Park Lane.

Just think what could happen when the tide changes and the wind gets behind those ears! <img src="graemlins/images/icons/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="[rolleyes]" />
