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.

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

Probably not as strong nowadays, but it has been on American TV for several years and with a lot more regularity then anything on British produced broadcasting.

Yep. I know that accent all too well seeing Gabby and I have that in common.

He's actually doing quite well. I thought he'd embarrass himself but he's made some decent points and naturally very defensive of the club and our key players and challenges the often lazy media perception of us.

I was born in Aston, but moved I think at 2 to Erdington. Lived just off Kingsbury Rd, not far from Rookery Park. Went to Birches Green. I remember going to Wilton Market with my mum. Erdington high street last time I went is such a dump now. Sad to see. Really went downhill after Littlewood’s and Woolworth’s all closed down replaced by low cost stores.

It is yes, very sad. Before starting school I would have been up there nearly every day with my Mom and Nan, with an iced bun from Wimbush as a reward for keeping schtum. I'd pop up there now and again as it's the nearest branch of Game, but it's heads down and don't make eye contact till you get in the shop, it's like the valley of the damned.

They really had their z list of celebrities out last night including Jamie Mackie and Danny Cowley who couldn’t even be bothered to describe Newcastle’s first goal.

He has signed for Manure more times in the last few months than Jack did.

There isn't much solid information coming from the reporter in Dortmund. I think the guy they have covering the story is Ed Winchester off of 'The Fast Show'.

This is Sky all over.  Dortmund set a deadline of 10th August for the deal to be done and then said he isn't going anywhere.  They have somehow kept this shite going for another 7 weeks.  Apparently they still offered £30m less than they want this week.  He had a respiratory infection and didn't travel to wherever they were playing this week and Sky blew it up out of all proportion.

Sky were very fair with their presenters for last nights Brighton v Man U match.  With Brighton being the home team one would expect there to be someone who knows the club, can give insites etc. but no we have Andy (sorry) Andrew Cole and Fletcher doing the match analysis.  Biased or what?

Sky Sports has been poor for at least the last couple of years. Like everything else it just seems to have been dumbed down for a brain dead society.

Sign of the times I suppose!

They could’ve at least got Michael Robinson who played for both.

Edit no they couldn’t.  He died in April!

Edit.  Oh and he didn’t play for Manure.  Apart from that my post is valid.

It's even worse when they have very obviously biased ex-players co-commentating, eg Carragher on Liverpool matches.
