Soccer Brain



Anthony H. Wilson


as Masterfan Granada for MUTV, 14 September 1998 to 27 March 2000 (48 episodes in 3 series)

as Junior Masterfan Granada for MUTV, 4 January to 27 September 1999 (26 episodes in 1 series)

as Soccer Brain Granada (regional), 12 July 2000 to 10 July 2001 (17 episodes in 2 series)


Tony Wilson hosted this late night knockout contest to try and find Granadaland's brainiest footy fan with the best knowledge of football in the North West and beyond, initially as Masterfan on Manchester United's MUTV station before moving to regional ITV as Soccer Brain. But it wasn't light-hearted knockabout fare - this programme seemed to be aimed at a more intellectual type of fan, which made a very nice change from what you normally seen on football quizzes. Think Mastermind, only specialised.

Seems it stretched to a second series. Guess what that was called.
