They do look a decent outfit but they just aren't scoring enough. 6 goals in the last 9 games or something like that and 3 of those came in one game.

While I was away in the UK for Christmas/New Year, all my Al Jazeera Sports channels appear to have become beIN Sports.......... any clues anyone? Seems to be French-centric......

EDIT:

Just found this on Wikipedia:

Starting from January 01, 2014, Al Jazeera Sport Channel will change its name to be beIN Sports Arabia. Additionally, all channels named "Al Jazeera Sports" were retitled "beIN Sports" to ensure all channels have the same branding.

Does anyone know if they have resolved the 'only showing one Prem Lge game at 3pm UK time on a Saturday afternoon' issue?

Hull are a damned sight better than West Ham, who seem certain to be relegated unless they remove Fat Sam quickly.

It's all very simple these days, in that whoever has the most money wins, unlike the Brian Clough days when 'Old Big Head' could beat every fat wallet in Europe.

Eurgh. Sunderland steal a point.

How can any side with Cattermole and Bardsley even hope of staying up?

Can anyone advise on whether I need to change my subscription in anyway?

BeIN sports keep showing the advert today about the channels switching to secure mode and the need to register my receiver by Jan 31st- yet the website doesn't list mine as an acceptable one!

I have an e life box and am paying etisalat for the sports package for the games? beIN website claims they show all 380 games yet I still noly have one sat 3pm match option! Does this change after Jan 31st?

I spoke to Etishite yesterday and they assured me that eLife boxes will continue to work after Jan 31 as its a secure point-to-point connection. They had no idea whether this would re-introduce multiple games though :-(
