It was a plush but pleasurable do at the Hilton Munich Park for the Elektra 08 Awards last night.
Host for the evening this year was Jeff Stelling, he of Sky Sports fame, and very good he was, too. He desribed his Gillette Soccer Saturday show as 'watching football without seeing the shots, or the goals... much like watching Newcastle United'. A bit rich for a Harlepool fan...
But more importantly, who are this year's winners? Well, we updated the site immediately after the event, so simply check out Elektra 08 Awards - The Winners.
