It really pisses me off that they don't show the match duration time on the highlights. Does anyone know why they don't. And do you think they should?

I am completely with you. All I can think is that they are not allowed to as it could be passed off as a live broadcast, perhaps if screened abroad?

It's probably because they get a clean feed (i.e. no logos, time, scores etc) so would have to put the clock on themselves, which may not take too long, but considering the fast turnaround is probably a bit of a hassle. Also, it could look incredibly messy as the time would be jumping about all over the place - altogether neater and easier to leave it off.

Agree with Smiler and Frak - the omission is irritating, but then it would also be annoying to have the numbers jumping all over the place at every edit. Maybe they could do something with a simple progression bar for each half?

The progression bar might be a bit like a computer one - where it stalls at 25% and 99%. Maybe they should have an egg timer if it is a 0-0 draw played to the standard of Liverpool v Man City yesterday.

NPP - I can think of a few matches where I'd have liked to have hit 'refresh' on 89 minutes, certainly!
For Liverpool vs Man City they could just have had a little image of paint drying.
