Slow news day?

 It must have been one heck of a boring afternoon in this Salisbury newsroom. If anyone has any information, it's likely that nobody cares.

Midweek football

Oct
29

Can I just point out how nice it is to see nine Premier League games being played simultaneously midweek? It's something we haven't seen for a very long time due to the UEFA Cup, Champions League and hectic schedule. It's nice to be able to enjoy a very rare occurence like this! If only Newcastle didn't play last night and it'd be a full house!

 Match of the Day at 10:45, BBC One. :)
