Football wouldn’t be football without a weekly catch-up and review with the team behind Match of the Day on iPlayer on a Saturday night. Having been aired on the BBC for more than fifty years (since 1964!) and with legendary Gary Linekar as the longest standing host (he’s been doing this since 1999!). It goes without saying that streaming Match of the Day is must throughout the Premier League season. Linekar is supported in his review and punditry by a collection of analysts, with support from Jermaine Jenas, Danny Murphy, Alan Shearer, and Ian Wright.

How does Beebs work?

Beebs has been developed to extract the best aspects of VPN technology so that subscribers can have all the positives and protections of a VPN but without the downsides. When the BBC iPlayer service is being used, Beebs is called into action and makes it appear as though your computer is connecting to BBC iPlayer from within the UK. Think of it as a specialised BBC VPN which is only used when needed.  

What Beebs doesn’t do however is download straight onto your device. Instead, it is a simple Google Chrome add-on and is installed directly to your browser, enabling a more reliable, better quality service. This means you can continue to follow your team no matter where you are.

Croke Park is the stadium of Dublin. It’s the home of Gaelic Athletic Association (as you can see on the banners) and Gaelic games. The day I visited it, Prince Harry had been there few hours before and he walked on that grass. It’s something unusual because of the conflicts between UK and Ireland!
