This was brilliant. Shame it hasn't been on in it's usual format since about 1995, and shame it hasn't been on for a football tournament since 1998. This is excellent. Frank Skinner and David Baddiel, with 2 celebrity guests for each show. The studio was designed to be like a flat, and Frank and David would be sitting on their sofa as they did in real life when they shared a flat. The resident Statto would be there, as their geeky mate, always in his dressing gown and slippers, who tended to concentrate on the details of football, whilst Frank and Dave would deal with the passion, and the humour. If only this series would come back. The duo would show clips in which they'd noticed amusing things, and discuss the various goings-on of football at the time. There would also be a hilarious 'Phoenix from the Flames' where a goal from past football would be re-created by Frank, David and one of the players involved. It was a classic show. There has never been a better programme on football, and it is one of the greatest comedy shows ever, in the opinions of football supporters.
