ITV are showing the FA Cup Final today in a programme lasting four and a half hours. Why do you need that long for a 90 minute football match? Then I realised - first, you need at least an hour before the match for a series of self appointed 'experts' with incomprehensible Glaswegian accents to tell us who is going to win and by how many goals. Then after the match, they will need at least as long again to explain why all their predictions were wrong. Also, given that it is ITV, there needs to be at least 45 minutes set aside for commercials. Sorted!
