Recommended Posts

BBC Sport have announced plans for a brand new Saturday night highlights programme called 'The Football League Show', which will follow 'Match of the Day' and showcase all the goals from the Coca-Cola Championship, League 1 and League 2.

Presented by Manish Bhasin, The Football League Show will begin on Saturday 8th August at 11.10pm on BBC1. Joining Manish in the studio, with his unique brand of expert analysis and candid opinion on major talking points, will be Steve Claridge. 5 Live regular Mark Clemmit takes up the role of roving reporter, bringing viewers all of the stories making the headlines.

Live coverage of The Coca-Cola Football League also returns to the BBC for the first time since 1988. Ten matches from the Coca-Cola Championship will be shown live, beginning with West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United on Saturday August 8th on BBC1.

BBC Sport Online will simulcast the live Championship games and provide match edits of the weekend's games' highlights. In addition, there will be a divisional goals round up from each division every week. All the Carling Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy goals will also be available.

The Football League Show will also be available for seven days on BBC iPlayer and on Red Button until midday on Sunday.

The Carling Cup also returns to the BBC with live coverage for the first time since 1987. There will be a highlights programme for each round, the first of these on Wednesday, 12th August, featuring Macclesfield Town v Leicester City.

Highlights of the Coca-Cola Football League Play-Offs will bring the season to a dramatic conclusion.

In addition to the BBC's offering, Sky Sports will be showing live coverage of up to 80 Coca-Cola Football League matches, including games from all three divisions and the Play-Off Finals at Wembley

I wouldn't of thought so, BBC have won the rights to the Football League and I guess this includes highlight shows. Nobody would watch it if they continued it anyhow when you can watch the BBC highlight show on iPlayer when you want.
