  1. Well that takes the biscuit. Just had an ad on here for Tottenham Hotspur. Harry Kane and the cockerel emblem and the hashtag “watch us rise” unfckingbelievable!!!

    • These ad’s are usually tailored to your online browsing history…are you a secret Spud, John? 🙂

      Though most probably explains why I keep getting ads for Thai brides 😀

  2. “also televised live Sports sports” – a competitor for BT and Sky, then?

  3. Huddersfield on a Monday night – bloody Sky!
