    Hi all,

    Does anyone know why the BBC are showing Manchester Utd's Champions League match on wednesday? Have they got the rights to show the Champions League now, or is this just a one off?

    Just seems strange!

    As far as i know, the Beeb have only got a deal to show the qualifying rounds for the Champions League. When we get down to the real thing then as far as i know ITV still have the rights to show this. Apparently 1 game will be shown on ITV1 on a Tuesday with another game being shown on ITV2 on the Wednesday. So no need to panic as we will still be able to experience the delights of big Ron 'that fullback's a bit milky' Atkinson. Hurrah !
