Video of the Week: Cup Final Hell

It’s presumably from TV Hell – by way of the Goal TV segment Football Hell – that the BBC got the name for this feature (and watch out for Des Lynam visibly flinching as he realises he has to say the word in the middle of the afternoon). What I find particularly odd is that the notion of all-day-long, gimmick-filled Cup Final coverage is seen as a nostalgic preserve as early as 1995…
