The BBC, in a show of commitment to the Championship, have announced that the first of their 10 televised matches will feature newly relegated from the Premier League, Newcastle United, away to, just demoted from the Premier League, West Bromwich Albion.

A spokesman for the broadcasters denied accusations that they were ashamed to be showing football from outside the top flight and stated that the use of a hastily edited intro from “Match of the Day” with Gary Lineker’s voice dubbed whenever he uses the words “Premier League” was a cost cutting decision and not at all an indication that the corporation really wanted to be showing Manchester United vs Liverpool.

“If you squint a bit, imagine the players being a lot more twatty and ignore the standard of the football, then I guess you could pretend that you’re watching a Premier League match from last season, but I can assure you that this is entirely coincidental. We, at the BBC, are fully supportive of our commitment to the Championship, and we will endeavour to cover as many of the second rate clubs as we can.”.

“Teams with a rich history and fairly recent Premier League experience can expect to feature in at least one match, so fans of  Ipswich, Watford, Reading and Middlesbrough should be happy that they will have matches televised, most likely when they play Newcastle.”

When asked, by journalists, if this included showing live matches featuring teams such as Scunthorpe and Blackpool, he coughed and muttered something under his breathe about Hell freezing over.
