PICK OF THE DAY.

Live football ESPN, 7.45pm THERE'S been plenty of scaremongering about ESPN's football coverage, writes James Milton.

"What do these Yanks know about our beautiful game?" people have been grumbling. "They seem to think you need to wear a helmet to play 'football'."

Oscar Wilde said that England and America were two countries divided by a common language, but then Oscar Wilde said a lot of things.

I was a little worried that the ESPN coverage might be littered with horrible Americanisms such as "soccerball", "EPL" and "David Beckham is still a really good player".

However, it is reassuring to see the steady hand of Ray Stubbs at the tiller of the good ship ESPN.

If Stubbsy calls Wayne Rooney "Manchester United's most offensive player" you can be sure it's got nothing to do with Rooney's position on the pitch.
