Group G results and Group H matches

Yes, I know the group stages are dragging on longer than the real thing, but I don't have FIFA's resources. I do still aim, somehow, to get this thing finished at the same time as the football shiznit. Anyway, we must move with all speed to the Michael Speake Leisure Centre on Norwich's busy Prince of Wales Road for the group G results.

Anglia knight 4 From the North - Granada 2
From the North - Granada 4 Teledu Cymru dragon 2
Teledu Cymru dragon 2 Central cake mark 1 5
Central cake mark 1 5 From the North - Granada 1
Teledu Cymru dragon 3 Anglia knight 4
Anglia knight 4 Central cake mark 1 3

So, that's 9 points for the Narvicensian silver knight and 6 points for the Central cake. The Granada arrow's lone victory against the Teledu Cymru dragon is not enough to see it through. We can only speculate on how the blue Granada Colour Production card would have fared. And so to H:

We're playing catch-up, so votes by 8pm tonight - Monday 5 July - please.

I've always hated the Bats Wings. My first reaction to seeing it was "what a bloody mess". It might be fine for some kind of masonic lodge though. The BBC1 Futura face is also something I dislike - the cyan and black version with the diamond cameo /B/B/C/ and italic COLOUR is the definitive version for me. Westward is the ITV ident I was lucky enough grow up with and the Tyne Tees I admire as it is simply very, very well done.

I used to receive Westward on my b&w portable if the high pressure was enough. That start-up was superb, waiting to see if the music would end before the logo finished forming-up. As for Tyne Tees - hah!

BBC 1: This is probably my choice to lift the trophy, Brian, er, Louis.

BBC Bat: I can see what they're trying to do but it's as poor as most of the BBC's fifties graphics.

Westward: Sorry, Kecske, another example of "We may be commercial television but we can do class (ie suburban kitsch)" for me. Charity shops couldn't sell Westward galleons or Anglia knights.

Tyne Tees: As with later HTV, very good, simple, use of the channel's initials.

Feel bad for the Bats Wings, but the other logos are far better, especially the Tyne Tees one. I had to overcome regional sentiments (I was born in the SW when the galleon reigned) to acknowledge the might of TTTV.
