MATCH PREVIEW

After losing their first home match back in the Championship, Norwich will be looking to atone for that defeat against Watford by seeing off a Swansea side that have every reason to be confident.

Norwich, who drew at Scunthorpe last weekend and have scored injury-time goals in both their opening league matches, are awaiting their first league win. But they already look much stronger than the side that took four home matches to record a first win in 2008 and went on to be relegated.

 

WTF!! Two matches in and they already do not have a clue!

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

• This is only the second time in 28 years that these clubs are in the same division.

• They were both in the Championship in 2008/09, when Swansea did the double over the Canaries.

Norwich

Like Swansea, Norwich are yet to pick up a yellow or red card in the Championship this season.

Just noticed another error! Crofts got booked against Scunthorpe!!

[quote user="Daz"]Why do we bother paying Tv Licences? [:$][/quote]

Very good point, lets get Wiz to start a campaign against paying our licences for a month!

[/quote]and its not just the Website coverage that needs a re-vamp, on their football shows, several mistakes are usually made.I''d like to see Match of the Day given a fresh new look, Hansen and lawro have been around and got the T-Shirt millions of times.Match of the Day 2 is a much more friendly show, Colin Murray did a great job with his forst show, Lee Dixon is a decent enuogh pundit, and the shows normally a good laugh.Lets not get started on Claridge on The Football League Show and Lizzie who reads the emails and texts [:''(]

Looks like the thought  of  wiz  boycotting the beeb has prompted them into  rewriting the review  lol

Well at least it''s not personal.  As far as the BBC are concerned, there is little life outside the Premier League. 

Anyone who watched Football Focus last week will tell you that apart from about 10 goals shown in a brief 60 second round-up, the only thing that happened in Football was an England friendly and the start of the Premier League.  Nothing else exsists!

Didn''t notice this year, but, prior to the start of last season, on the day that the Prem started, the Football Focus intro was "...its back, yes, the football season begins again today...", disregarding that 72 other league clubs had been in action already.

BBC Sport used to be unrivalled, by anyone, anywhere, in the world. Now it is lazy, in terms of presentation and reseach, with far too many over-produced and slow-mo, ''arty'' clips used to feature the action,far too many of the same tired old presenters and pundits (I have yet to hear Mark Lawrenson justify his existance and fee) and with an emphasis on celebrity.

"Hello, and welcome to the last day of the British Open, and, whilst play warms up, lets see Johnny Vegas on the golf course having lots of laughs..." etc etc...

As for the licence fee...don''t even start on that one!

The problem is a lot of those previews are written up by people at the Online Sports centre in Birmingham, as such look only at stats and don''t have the local knowledge. It was probably changed after someone at BBC Norfolk noticed.
