West Ham United’s Karren Brady uses her Sun diary to plug Sky Sports
West Ham United bigshot Karren Brady writes a ‘Football Diary’ for the Sun (prop R. Murdoch). Let’s pick out a couple of comments:
SUNDAY, DEC 14
ONCE more, no Premier League player even makes it to the top ten of the increasingly self-indulgent BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards.
Whereas the prompter of a dancing horse and the steerer of a sledge do.
I am positive there are plenty of richly talented footballers in Britain, so it does not say a lot for the general standard of our coaching that — since Ryan Giggs won the award five years ago — we have not had a footballer within a sniff of it.
As for the 150-minute television show itself, the BBC make their little bit of sport go a long way.
The Premier League’s live games are on Sky Sports (prop. R. Murdoch).
THURSDAY, DEC 18
THE signing of Thierry Henry is great for Sky Sports, who already boast a fine team of pundits and commentators.
If they could find an elixir of youth, Sky would have a side that would challenge for the Champions’ League at the very least.
