There was a NY Rangers ex-player (I suspect Phil Esposito) who acted as colour man, and he was a hoot - very subdued during play and then went entertainingly bonkers when a fight broke out, and hockey fans will know he wasn’t subdued for long.

I also forgot Peter Jones.

The greatest ever for me….when football was only on radio 2 he was the best. 

Always remember he was the radio commentator on the day of Hillsborough….was obvious how bad it was but it was factual, emotional reaction of someone who was clearly deeply affected
