Would be akin to an art critic giving The Starry Night a 3/10. Sometimes you're left with no option.

I thought that pearces commentary was very sedate in contrast with the atmosphere and the quality of the game, he barely seemed bothered about what he was watching

Still got in his obligatory mention of the Holte End being in fine voice though.

I think they must've turned the background sounds down. I was just going by what was said, which was enormously complimentary compared to the Tottenham game.

Our performance level was much higher today, granted, but short of Chapman getting his cock out and cracking one off, I don't think the Manchester-based media could've been much more positive about us.

To be fair to them even if Gobbie Cabbage was on the panel they could hardly be critical of a team that had  just destroyed the treble winning English and European champions.

I am still shaking - cannot wait to get home, break out a single malt or 3 and watch the entire game again  ;)

MOTD is a highlights programme. The Prime live showing apparently had the atmosphere audible. Iíve had fans of other teams telling me how great it sounded.

Itís really enjoyable watching our games again right now. Calm and collected with the result wrapped up. And so many great ones to choose from. None more so than last night of course.

Sounded like he was commenting from.a.studio and not actually at the match is was so sedate.

Isn't it just "Leesh"?

It is.

Now, what about the name "Ger"? Mr Regan of this parish allegedly cut short his time in the UK due to the consistent bastardisation of it. Imagine being growled at every time someone called you.

But that's not even an Irish name, it's just a shortened English(?) name.

I know/know of dozens of Irish males with the name "Ger", especially popular in the 50-75 year old generation. I've never met a Gerard from the UK who shortens his name like that - Jerry sure, never Ger.

Again, shown by how British people react to pronouncing "Ger" as a "Grrrr" instead of "Jer", every feckin' time.
It's how my girlfriend pronounced my Dad's name during the week and I nearly split up with her.


Late to the party on this, but i'm not even the only Ger in my company. When i worked in london my director went for the Grrrr pronounciation of my name, but it went on so long i couldn't really correct him.
