image for Premier League Loses Portsmouth Pub Case
Portsmouth. Not a pub.

A Portsmouth pub landlady has won her case against the Premier League over the right to show matches broadcast from other countries but some reckon the decision has come too late.

The European Court of Justice found that Karen Murphy had the right to use a satellite decoder from another country to show Premier League matches.

The ECJ says national laws which prohibit the import, sale or use of foreign decoder cards are contrary to the freedom to provide services.

This decision is expected to cause the Premier League to rethink its exclusive agreements with Sky Sports and ESPN.

But a source from Portsmouth said: "Bit bloody late now for Karen, innit?

"It was about Pompey games when her punters couldn't get into Fratton Park 'cos it's so small. They used to pile in to watch ve ledz on her telly - and it didn't matter if the commentary was in Greek or Arabic.

"Now, ve ledz ain't in the Premier League, so who gives a monkeys?"
