I guess I am what many would call old-school, a dinosaur who is stuck in his ways and who is reluctant to accept change, but am I alone is the question I ask?

The last twelve months have seen numerous changes to the way in which football is televised.

From what I can make out, those who provide us with our football coverage have gone overboard to ensure all aspects of society are represented.

Now whether that is for better or for worse I will let you decide.

I know what my preferences are, and I use the volume button to suit my own tastes.

But, last night, watching coverage of the EURO 2020 fixture between Germany and France, a game which the French won 1-0, did I witness the straw that has broken this camel’s back?

Paul Pogba, in my humble opinion, was the best player on the park and was quite rightly rewarded as such.

However, it would appear the latest UEFA directive is that the term ‘man-of-the-match’ is to be ditched, instead the term ‘star-of-the-match’ is to be used.

Are they for real?

Is this something that is now expected to become common practise?

I think I need a lie down!

  • apparently the star of the match award is being brought on by a V.W. model car at the end of the match. enjoy your llie down.COYH.

    • Its the world we live in now unfortunately. These woke people need to wake up! Another example is taking the knee – this is only done by weak nations not strong ones in the Euros – the BBC is full of woke box tickers now – as is CNN – everyone knows that racism is wrong but the Kick it Out campaign is the way to handle it not taking the knee – I read a paper the other day that said this is all a phase and will disappear in a couple of years – fingers crossed

  • It’s not so that everyone feels included. It’s so that no one feels alienated.

    I remember getting man of the match as a kid and it’s hell of a feeling. I wonder if it still feels the same as a professional? I think the recognition is more important than phrase. In fact I think it should be changed to RULER OF THE MOTHERF***ING UNIVERSE because I think we’d see more players playing to get that title
