TS is there to antagonize. So if you get upset by the viewpoints/content/presenters then they are doing their job. The worst kind of press is no press.

George Gavin said that his job was to make the switchboard light up. Apart from the technology nothing's changed.

heís better on the telly and radio than I ever thought he would be to be honest

I also like that he hasnít got or wants a blue tick

when Gabby was at the height of his powers I was never his biggest fan
he gave us some good moments especially against Blues but I never thought he was as good as others claimed
so Iím not biased in his favour but I think heís done ok since going into the media side of things

oh and I donít give a toss about his post about Bielsa
(and I think Bielsa is a fantastic manager one if the best in the prem)

Iím with you on this, when Iím working from home Iíll vary between 6 music and some self harm for the eardrums with TS. Whilst Gabbys comments this week have made him look a bit silly, heís been quite ok whenever Iíve heard him, and bigs up villa constantly, which is nice to hear on a national station obsessed with Man U, Liverpool and spurs.
I too am non plussed either way with Him so not saying this as any great fan of Gabby. Thought he was a very good player for a few years and then he wasnít. As a person donít know him, I do have a mate whose kid plays or played in the same Sunday team as one of Gabbys kids and heís said whenever he was at the kids games he just came across as a normal bloke, chatting with the other parents, no airs and graces, bought all the kids in the team new boots without any fuss.

That's a really nice thing to do, to give him his dues.

Gabby Agbonlahor claims teams are TERRIFIED of Aston Villa and only park the bus against them!

"Teams are scared of Villa... they are frightened of Grealish.Ē
 ďThey think if they play like Liverpool theyíll get the same treatment.Ē

ďThe days of Villa playing teams whoíll come at them are over.Ē
Gabby Agbonlahor is fed up of teams parking the bus against Villa

The interviewers love him as he's turning into a right rent a quote, I cringe every time he opens his mouth.

He was on the Luke live lounge on Villa View after West Ham. I thought he spoke well and was quite insightful. He mentioned he had reservations about doing media work because of his brummie accent. Still obviously snobbery Iím the industry. AlanSmith has always had work though maybe thatís changed in last 14 years since I was in UK?

I know he turned into a bit of a cock towards the end but he was a one man one club servant for us and our highest Premier league goal scorer.

I do like the fact that we have "one of our own" in a world of Liverpool, FuckingUnited, London centric media wankers

I have been very disparaging about Gabby in the past but I agree with all your points Hookey

Definitely marked down a couple of weeks ago by answering on a TS quiz about Villa that he thought we had only won the FA Cup twice.

Well done Gabby

Great work by Gabby. He seems  to be trying to do something positive with his life after football. Pity some of the comments on there are just repulsive.

Fair fucks to him. He's blossoming as a person, getting involved with worthwhile causes and becoming more articulate and confident as somebody in the public eye. (Reading back, that don't 'alf sound patronising but is meant with sincerity)

He's surprisingly not the worst pundit in the world when I've heard him on Talksport.
