Make that man a knight of the realm.
What'd he say? Stelling is truly a king amongst men.
Middlesbrough's Academy he decided to take it upon himself to defend the town in general after being named top in the worst place to live in Britain poll. His own hometown was named 20th I do believe.
Was it about the Hartlepool lad's car accident? I can imagine JS railing against all the shit aspects of the game and how irrelevant they are in comparison to a talented young player dying.
Of course, it could have been about Merson talking bollocks as per. Either way, he's great.
Stupid browser :(
Some of his lines were just wonderful.
"The people who made this poll call their mushy peas 'guacamole.'"
but making that format even vaguely watchable should be near impossible. He makes it essential viewing.
Should I take that to mean he doesn't understand what a poll is?
is the best thing about Saturday afternoons.
Phil Thompson etc... cheering him on before he got cut off for an ad break was quite the sight.
I don't think I'd ever laughed so much watching that show.
on a Sunderland MB, spelling user's own:
" the people who compile this tosh, with no disrespect, think that everone in the north lives in corronation street style terraces, they are the type who buy skinny lattes and call mushy peas guacamole, they are the sort that go to the ganges on holiday so some bearded bloke can teach them to relax cross legged, the sort who use their blackberrys in the silent coach of british rail and have babyshambles as their ring tone, they are the type that think little britiain was finnier than the likely lads, they have never been to boro, they dont know about the cleavland hills, they have never visited capatin cooks monument, they have never been to the institute of modern arts with all its picassos, they have never been to the beaches, they dont know about the river tees, they dont know about yarm village, they have never seen the historic transporter bridge, they have never been to the riverside stadium, I BET THEY DONT KNOW THE SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE WAS BUILT BY A BORO COMPANY DORM AND LONG, and what about the famous sons and daughters of boro, Brian Clough born at number 11 Valley Road, Boro, 1935 they ignore him, what about Rory Underwood, Ray Mallan, Woodgate, Chris Tomlinson, Chris Kamara, unbelivable, they have forgotten about, Paul Daniels, Roy Chubby Brown, Liz Dawn alias Vera Duckworth to you and I, Journey South, they have never heard Chris Rea and have never tasted his families wonderful wonderful ice cream, OK its not quite as nice as Hartlepool but I tell your Boro is a darn fine.......(Producer cuts him off)"
even mid-rant he got that in there. Haha.
GO ON SON!
he was trailing off a bit. mentioning coronation street and then vera duckworth on the other side.
I wish he was my dad.
I really hope someone puts it on youtoob set to Land of Hope and Glory.
I'll admit that, there was no need to bring up Journey South.
Luckily it looks like there's someone with a YouTube account recording Soccer Saturday every week just in case this sort of thing happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYfCG4laEt4
Is he ACTUALLY using Paul Daniels and Roy Chubby Brown as plus points?
He's got a screw loose, clearly.
that world famous guy, ray mallan. hes from middelsbrough!
"ok it's not quite as nice as Hartlepool"
am pissed off that I missed this now
someone find and post!
this x 100000
I was listening to it in the gym and laughing histerically - I reckon everyone else must've thought I was a madwoman. I especially love the fact that the producers and execs of the show are probably the very people he was describing and must've felt mighty uncomfortable.
been a bit upset at the death of a Hartlepool player the night before as well...poor Jeff
Paul Daniels, Vera Duckworth, Chris Kamara....
YOUR BOYS TOOK ONE HELL OF A BEATING.
Well, drawing with Spurs must feel like a humiliation anyway.
I'm still dissappointed about the mentioning of Journey South.
is so amazing.
