I watched the Real Madrid - Galatasary match last night, as it happens, on an Al-Jazeera station. There was, however, no escaping the ubiquitous Gary Lineker who introduced the programme, with his confreres, the super-intellectual Alan Shearer (as bland as ever), the slightly creepy Ray Wilkins (with his constant references to "these young men") and Michael Owen (actually quite good). Does the BBC not pay them enough?
Good football match, though.
I felt slightly guilty about not watching Malaga and Dortmund, but they were not exactly the glamour teams on display.
