MOTD2 Does Arthouse Horror Pastiche!

Best tv football moment of the season so far: the BBC's rather brilliant pastiche of the opening of 'Psycho', all Hermann's stabbing strings and sliced monochrome graphics to introduce the match between striped-shirted bitter rivals, Newcastle and Sunderland. Some Hitchcock-loving studio grunt was obviously having a bit of fun on his or her overtime... genius! It almost makes up for Lawro's 'drunken pessimist uncle' sneers and terrible shirt. Almost.
