"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

New prime time deal for Football League


The Football League has signed a new three seasons deal for its highlights programme with Channel 5. The 90-minute programme, showing every single goal, will go out at 9 p.m. before the BBC's Match of the Day covering the Premier League.

Under the present deal with the BBC, the Football League Show occupies a graveyard slot after Match of the Day.  Whilst there is a repeat early on Sunday morning, times for this vary depending on other programmes and can be as early as 6.10 a.m.

ITN productions will film the games and Channel 5 is looking for a production partner.
