They are a bunch of pure A-Holes at the Beeb - they ALWAYS get Hibs and Hearts muddled up - presumably because they both begin with H - PATHETIC as you'd think 135 years would be just about long enough to get the hang of it! BBC = an unending motivation to vote SNP!

No, it is Hibs that have been drawn against FC Sarajevo. Hibernians of Malta, that is. :wink:

I'd quite like to support Malta Hibs for a season - better weather and they're in the Europa League

Could get channel 4 to film it - wife swap style

Bunch of dafties - often cite Rio as the capital of Brazil.

BBC once genuinely referred to Sydney as "Austria's" capital city, not only did they get Australia wrong, but the capital is not Sydney, I had to do a double take...twice!

They had a headline the other day that was "reaction to England's 1-0 defeat to Italy" it quickly disappeared.

BBC Scotland in "shocking sports journalism" surprise.

It's Hibernians of Malta that are playing in Europe. Unfortunately our national Sports broadcaster is too *****e to make the distinction.

Their Ultras are a rockin' crew. Seen a few good videos on the internet over the last few years of them in action. Just a shame we can't use flares here in Scotland.

The BBC are a joke.

They're not the only offenders in broadcasting but, along with gaffs like mixing up 2 teams from totally different countries, why do most of their commenters insist on replacing the word 'brought' with 'bought'? - 2 totally different words with 2 totally different meanings:

"he was bought down inside the penalty area..."
"he bought the ball down nicely with his chest..."

And I'm paying a licence fee to be talked at by these amoebas :confused:
