Gary Lineker's Hot-Shot

Mick Channon, ex-England footballer, top soccer pundit, and possibly the only person in Britain unable to pronounce the name "Lineker": what's your verdict on this game as you see it?

"Well Brian, viewing the action from overhead, I have to say that, while there's not a lot of detail and we don't see much of the pitch, everything's certainly very bright and clear."

The Run-around

What about the style of play being used? Some people would say it's fairly simplistic.

"I'd have to agree with them there, Brian. There's very little playing the ball around. Individuals are holding on to the ball well, funding off the tackles."

How would you say this game compares to some of the others we've witnessed?

"Well Brian, I don't feel this game has the same sort of depth or reliance on subtle play as we often expect. It's definitely been highly enjoyable, though, and a lot faster than people at home might be used to. The crowd have helped add to the atmosphere with their roars of approval at totally inappropriate moments. At the end of the day, it's 11.59pm."


Overall 72%
Not the best of footie games, but definitely one of the fastest.
