Match of the Day on the last day of the season is always a little bit different.
Last season's relegation decider was one of the most memorable programmes of recent years as four crucial games were cut together to reflect every twist and turn as it happened.
I was at Stoke against Wigan that day, getting news from the other relevant matches fed into my ear as the game unfolded. Wigan's scenario was that they had to win and you will recall that they did exactly that. Blackburn and Wolves also clung to safety while Blackpool and Birmingham bit the dust around them.
Every cruel surge of hope and flood of despair was brilliantly reflected on the programme as it flipped from venue to venue.
