Irrational hatred of...
By Nick Grundy
Please add Garth Crooks to the list of people deserving of our hatred.
His display as a commentator on Match of the Day was frankly pathetic.
Not for him the dull, everyday commentary style of actually talking about
the game, but rather a succession of unspeakably uninteresting,
self-congratulatory anecdotes about how good a player he was. When Des
Lynam makes a comment about someone's goal to game ratio Garth didn't talk
about their style of play, choosing instead to reply "Almost as good as
mine", and looked as if he thought someone actually cared or even
believed him when he said that he'd thought Mark Hughes was really good
when you played alongside him at Man Utd. And he told the manager, as
well. Take this grovelling arse-licker from our screens NOW, and put "BBC
hard-man" Trevor Brooking on alone if necessary!
And UEFA president Lennart Johannsson, for one of the most blatant
and despicable abuses of power I think I've ever heard of. To him I can
only say (predictably but rather satisfyingly all the same) "One-nil"!
