      Great news but this could be a major problem for Setanta who will be left with just 27 Premiership games and I can't see many people subscribing for those matches especially as they are the Saturday evening matches. I know they cover the Scottish league and the Conference but they could be in trouble when this new deal kicks in.

      With a bit of luck come the 2011 season and Setanta have gone bust and Virgin are reduced to searching down the back of Bransons sofa for a few bob, Sky may be able to pick up the final package for a song and flog the games on PPV at a quid a go like last time or maybe 1.50 for HD

      Yes a PPV option (keenly priced of course!) is a sadly lacking omission in my opinion...

      Take a look at La Liga on Digital+ in Spain. All matches are shown live and all are PPV - cost is typically 10-15 per game. Don't wish PPV on us!

      We returned from Spain 18 months ago and I haven't taken on Sky Sports because many games I wanted to see were on Setanta and others on Sky. So I didn't have either. Now we have a clear choice that will carry most football. I will take Sky Sport when the new arrangement starts.

      The bids were too close.

      Setanta have gone crying to the Premier League asking for a re-think.

      I don't give them much hope. Imagine what Sky would have to say about it.
