I thought replacing Clare Balding with Mark Chapman on the Challenge Cup was a backwards step, but him replacing Colin Murray on MOTD2 is worse. Very thin programme padded out with uninteresting stuff.

And fewer Hansen needed.

They've been posing recycled questions to the viewers, I wonder if anyone has noticed. Same Q as a few weeks ago. Name 10 Frenchman managers in the Premier League during Arsene Wenger's tenure at the Arse.

I thought it was 10 villa managers since Wenger arrived.

So it was. So I change my complaint that MOTD2 pose very similar questions to that already asked, with only slight variances and that confuses those of us suffering from " It's too late to be watching a second rate football highlights show on a school night - anxiety ".

It's a school night. You've had one drink too many. It's the 'Too good, too bad' comedy slot on MOTD2.

How has it come to this?

Two and two, ffs.

Maybe you've had one drink two many. Or too, even.

I watch MotD and motd2 on recordings, so I can fast forward through the crap.

Sadly, that applies to most things these days.

I never get to see MOTD 2 so can't comment on its awfulness. However I do wonder why you bother with a tv, moto, you never seem to like anything that is on it.

Old Jewish ladies... Catskills...

moto748 - 15 Dec 2015 13:19:33 (#11 of 19)

I like plenty on TV, and am so flattered that you take such an interest.

MadamGeorge - 15 Dec 2015 13:34:11 (#12 of 19)

It is entirely possible that I have just missed your more positive comments on tv, moto. But your comments that I have noticed do tend to be rather negative. However I am pleased that you do find stuff to enjoy.

Old Jewish ladies... Catskills...

Is that the 'such small portions' one? Or the 'is anything ok, ladies?' one?

TRaney - 15 Dec 2015 14:03:30 (#14 of 19)

I only know the first one. What's the second?

popstarofwonder - 15 Dec 2015 14:05:59 (#15 of 19)

Four elderly Jewish ladies are having lunch at [insert Jewiah-style restaurant name]. Half way through the main course the manager comes over to this table and says, "Lovely to see you here ladies! Is anything OK?".

davedanon - 15 Dec 2015 14:09:42 (#16 of 19)

Heh. Hadn't heard that one.

I like the summation of Jewish comedy by some comedian, forget who:

"They tried to kill us all; let's eat"

TRaney - 15 Dec 2015 14:10:39 (#17 of 19)

I could have worked that out myself, couldn't I

popstarofwonder - 15 Dec 2015 14:39:11 (#18 of 19)

YouTube 'Old Jews Telling Jokes'. It was on BBC a few years ago and I laughed myself hoarse watching it.

DeckTheLawls - 15 Dec 2015 15:06:04 (#19 of 19)

#16 Molly Katz Jewish As A Second Language which I highly recommend.

Though the full quote is: "They tried to kill us. They failed. Let's eat."

Apart from Yom Kippur all Jewish festivals are based on that. And even YK involves food... eventually
