A new football season, but on Match Of The Day somethings never change

I wrote yesterday of the excitement of a new football season, and in terms of results I am very pleased. Everton won, and injury plagued Norwich team drew away and Luton, who my brother supports and who I have a soft spot for also won, so no complaints there. However, when it comes to Match of the Day, it's the same old story.

I write not about the commentary, which is excellent, or the analysis which is informative and authoritative. I write of the fact that yet again, Everton are the last match to be shown. Okay, I thought, it's a one off surely. After all they wouldn't repeat the story of last year when Everton appeared to be the last team shown more than any other team. So I tuned in to Match of the Day 2 on BBC tonight and, well, I'll leave it to you to guess which game's highlights were last to be shown.

I'd love to see some figures on how this averages out over a season. I used to feel back in the dim and distant past that the mighty Sheffield Wednesday were usually shown last. It would be interesting to know the whole truth.

No, Everton used to be the second last match. Maybe now we've got Sven we won't be last :-)

A Liverpool supporting friend of mine is concinved that Liverpool are always last. How about that for paranoia ?

Typical Everton fan - always whinging! Having said that, with their record I'd be whinging too.

Sad sa this may sound, I am actually keeping a tally of who is last on MOTD on my blog.
