The goals have flowed so far in CABLE's Premiership games, with 10 matches (most live, a couple delayed live) yielding 39 scores. Only three of the 15 teams featured so far (Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds) have failed to find the net. With this week's scheduled matches Liverpool and Coventry make their first appearances, taking the total to 17 teams covered. In fact, the Sky Blues are on twice this week, against Derby and Manchester United. That will leave only Middlesbrough, Bradford and Leicester yet to appear. CABLE are to be commended for the use of the scoreline graphic they keep permanently on screen during matches now. In the top-left corner of the picture, it rarely intrudes on key moments of action, and it is a great aid on those occasions when you can't watch the whole game from start to finish. Join it late or leave the room for a few minutes and you can still keep abreast of the score. The Wharf people have also resumed the use of English on their half-time and full-time scoreboard, a bi-lingual service that they started then dropped briefly last season. Non football fans may feel that the burgeoning coverage of the game (in Europe, South America and Asia especially) is too much. But that's not the opinion of one official in Italy. League boss Franco Carraro has surprisingly declared recently that his country needs even more televised soccer. To that end the new Serie A fixture list includes games on Saturdays for pay-per-view purposes. The new move breaks the long-standing tradition of Sunday scheduling in Italy. Saturday games occurred occasionally in the past only when sides had European club games coming up in the following midweek. Some pundits attacked the concept of weekend-long football, saying it was a threat to family life. Carraro responded with a tirade to the effect that the average Italian's appetite for football was nowhere near saturation point yet and that the nation had to follow the example of other leagues like Spain's and England's where weekend-long fixtures were already commonplace. He said the move was a 'positive evolution of things' and suggested the critics were not being progressive. Carraro also denied that football was reaching 'the point of exasperation'. You'd never have thought the day would come when Italians would be on the defensive about their football watching. It seems un-Italian, somehow.
