That reads like it has come straight from an Alan Partridge script.

Yes just no mention of the one way system in Norwich.

I like Lawrenson, Crooks, Keown - all the bad ones that nobody else seems to like. I find them much more entertaining.

About that dinner party.....I've just checked my diary and it appears I've another social engagement that night. Sorry!

I haven't got much time for Lawrenson or Crooks but despite being a miserable git Keown is a good pundit. I actually think the fact he is a misery guts is part of what makes him a good pundit.

They're wheeling out Gabby again to talk about us/ Grealish.

Fair play, he can't be as daft as he looks and sounds, getting all these high paying gigs.

Wonder what the thought process at Sky is in getting him on.

"Ex Villa. He'll do."     

He was on Talksport this week comparing Jack Grealish to Iniesta to much wailing on social media. Brilliant stuff, when he's playing he has them on strings and when someone talks about him it's the same. Piss funny.

I suspect the media use Gabby as he is always available. Although now the Jack stuff has died down Gabby might not be getting so many phone calls from Talksport and SKY.

I think he’s pretty good, and he sticks up for the Villa. Perfect

Gabby talking about Jack on Talksport:

"It's the movement of the body, he's gone. A little bit of acceleration with the ball and he's gone. I know it's a big statement but he reminds of a bit of Iniesta in his prime, skipping past you. That's Jack for you."

To which O'Hara tweeted:

"Someone stop this man, Gabby you need a temperature check pal."

Gabby's reply:

"Maybe if you had played for England against Iniesta and longer in the Prem you would understand"

That is excellent. I didn't think Gabby had it in him to be so witty.

I have enjoyed Gabby on the radio and they are inviting him on lots of shows.

Gabby’s been a breath of fresh air, even past the strong Erdington accent he has proven to be far more articulate and insightful than even his most arduous detractors.

We were talking about this in the pub and were pretty much in agreement that you watch the programme to find out the scores, the pundits are relatively inconsequential.

A big fuss about nothing.

True, but I guess we all have our favourites. I like Lawrenson, Crooks, Keown - all the bad ones that nobody else seems to like. I find them much more entertaining.


Garth Crooks doesn't half bang on. He was interviewing someone once and I reckon he should have contacted the Guinness Book Of Records because I am convinced he asked the longest question ever asked.

I reckon being Garth Crooks is worse than washing sieves.

The strong Erdington accent is glorious to hear on national radio, there needs to be more of it. Definitely.
